I want bigger pictures, but it looks like some of the (very minor) deco problems Buster had that Striker solved may have been reintroduced, which is disappointing.

Buster had better detailing hands down (and now this probably will also), but the actual darker colors on Striker worked better I thought. It looks like this is going with the lighter coloring Buster had.

At least they did the headlights on this one. I'll probably get him. But I was hoping he'd be a little more than this seems to be (but again, the pictures are small- I can't tell for sure if there's pin striping or not on the actual bot).

I'm only on a phone....but squinting to see if there are pinstripes.

Already have buster, striker, and (real) battle blades...kinda don't want to want this one.


I wonder how it will affect prices on the first striker.

I will only get this if it's cheap enough and if it has really REALLY nice packaging

Yeah, this exactly. I have every version of Leader Prime available along with the myriad of weapons and this is underwhelming to say the least. I suppose it brings us full circle, so that there is a Buster Striker Prime with the amazing paint apps and chrome.

I know I will be picking this up, but I kinda like the look of the original Striker Prime quite a bit more than this Buster version.

It seems it has the light blue pinstripping.....really doesnt seem much of a difference to actually get him since he does look alot like buster....princing will be the last thing to factor in to decide if its good enough to get....but im a little.disappointed
