    It seems a bit unlikely; But I wouldn't rule out a Hasbro USA Trilogy line release sometime for at least one of those Takara Optimus toys as the other new large Optimus toys are all Prime related ones.

    It would be a good thing to do as a near Xmas giftset and a nice change from another damn Bumblebee.

    But unless TRU take it I would say you'd end up having to import it if you wanted one or make do with the ROTF one.

    Perhaps the KO guys who make faux Movie Optimus and MP Trailers might make the wings,guns and shield and swords as separate pieces sometime ?

    I think the question is, "Will any ROTF LDR Optimus Prime repaint/redeco/retool ignoring Battle Hooks Optimus Prime make it to retail anywhere outside of Japan?"

    Since there isn't a Hasbro version of Striker Prime, why would any informed Transformer collector wonder such a thing?

    There is no news of Hasbro regards to normal Jetwing Prime,so don't think Hasbro will even think about issuing Striker Optimus Prime.

    ...Maybe the type of response he's hoping for is better found in some pre-existing threads.

    Well a quick search for threads started by starscream1234 shows you do have several threads in that sort of theme going back a while. I couldn't help but notice you do it quite a lot.

    I'm not judging you it's just an observation.

    You could try polls. Or if you have a question make some friends on here and ask them.

    I'd like a Hasbro Striker Prime too though. and I followed your lead starscream1234 and started ,y own question thread on Cyberverse - 'chuckle'.

    Hasbro didn't want any Leader Optimus figures for Dark of the Moon but TakaraTomy did. So I doubt their opinion has changed. Plus Striker Optimus has too many parts to be packed at the normal Leader price range.
