RobotKingdom has posted new images of the recently released Buster Optimus Prime & Jetfire set by TakaraTomy from Revenge of The Fallen. These new images give us the answer we've been waiting for; confirmation that Buster Optimus Prime retains his buster rifle! Initially there was speculation that the aforementioned rifle would not be included.

This version of Optimus Prime differs from the previous release by having the masked head sculpt. In addition, the pin striping has changed from white to blue. Click on the title bar to see for yourself!

So just standard Jetfire with Buster Prime?

Because a black chrome Jetfire might make me hyperventilate a bit.
Counterpunch?
I'll buy this.

I expect it has to have the gun accessory as the Prime toy would be lacking the fuel canisters without it...

Just looks like regular Taktom Jetfire but cant really tell as the pic is only about 3cm wide and I cant get the bloody thing to load, I can email it to someone else in an excel sheet if needs be so they can have a go ?

Well, it could just be Buster Prime with the regular leader Prime non-transforming fuel tanks.

PM sent. I should be able to extract from the Excel file.

The package definately says Buster Optimus Prime, but it's also a TakaraTomy release

Hopefully just a placeholder for a Hasbro release.
Red leader
cheers Tim you legend!
Mechafire
Whoah, cool. Sucks that Optimus apparently doesn't have his gun, though.
Houndvoice
If Prime is without without the gun and just paired with a regular Jetfire, I really don't see the point.
Tell_Story
It definitely says buster Optimus, but the picture next to it is not the same as Buster and Optimus has a faceplate.

I definitely want Buster Optimus Prime and have thought about getting a second Jetfire for jet mode. I wonder what the price point is? Because Jetfire can be had for $35.00 easy nowadays.
Ultrawave
Are we sure Jetfire didn't get the same treatment as Buster Prime? He looks ALOT different when I compare mine to the picture.

...Although it may be the camera, I'm thinking we've got a Premium Jetfire in that box too.
rhapsodyred99
If they do th e"buster treatment to jetfire too Im all over it, othere wise easy pass.
mizuki088
It is a transparent plastic prime.

Can we get a Golden prime?
MonkeyBusiness
So, it's basically a Premium RotF Optimus Prime plus Jetfire?

I'll be honest: with Prime and Jetfire being so cheap at the local Wal-Mart, I've been considering picking a pair up so I can have Prime, Jetfire, and Power Up Prime.

If they come out with this stateside, I'm sold. My Prime will get powered up, and that Prime will go on the shelf.
Foster
I might be down for this after getting Bludgeon.
madman1366
I can't help but wonder if there is some kind of non-disclosure deal between Hasbro and Takara. Like one won't say if they'll put out a certain figure until the other gets to milk it first.

Otherwise why the hell can't Hasbro tell us if we're getting this version of Prime at all or not? There are no national secrets here we've already seen it, a simple yes or no will do.
Matrix Soul
of course I hear of this news the same day I find out my Buster Prime is shipped
Trailbreaker77
This could be a good thing for me, since I missed out on the first wave of Buster Prime.
RedHeadKevin
Seriously? No one saw this coming?
Bgrngod
Hrm... I wonder if the lack of a gun in the packaging suggests that the packaging was intended for a US release Prime but we are seeing the Japanese release first?

Um, not as a two-pack, no.
Waverider
So this looks like this Prime may be a ROTF leader class prime chromed out with out the gun feature of the buster prime? If this is true,this will be the 4th version of this mold in the same line. Geez mon... HasTak(Mainly Takara) is trying to milk the heck out of this mold for all it's worth. And I'm sure this is another dent to some of you Prime completists wallet.
Solrac333
If it's a Buster Prime WITH faceplate then SOLD!
Backscatter
Wow, just got Buster Prime YESTERDAY! Now this. Hope Jetfire gets the buster treatment
SPLIT LIP
Jetfire looks different.


He looks to be lacking... blue?
BairdimusPrime
its a shame jetfire is such a dissapointment it would be an awesome set

Yeah, I may get it anyway, but I don't want a Powered-Up Optimus without the faceplate.
Rodimus_Prime
You could have seen this coming from Takara. Hopefully it's Buster Prime and some chrome and little color changes for Jetfire. I like gift sets so...
PoweredConvoy
Takara hasn't done a giftset like this since Sonic Bomber and Galaxy Convoy, so it's been a while but that's the last time there was a Prime & someone else that combined.

Jetfire definitely looks to be lacking any blue, with either very dark gray or black in place. Optimus is the Buster Prime version, but he looks to have the face plate to me. Hopefully he has the gun.

Randy

Edit: Enlarged the image. Jetfire is definitely not blue but dark gray/black.

Yeah it was clear Fire Convoy and God Magnus before that with the master sword.

Anyway its very hard right now to tell anything. Im hoping it would be Buster Prime. Somebody there has the higher resolutions, bring it out now this suspense is killing me
DJCHARTERS
i will shell out for this. i was too slow to get buster prime so ill get the 2 pack

That's funny, the shelves are full of nothing but Buster Primes here.

Actually it was Magna Convoy DX (Final Battle Prime, Clear Overload, and X-Dimension Street Action Team) before Sonic Bomber & Galaxy Convoy, but God Fire Convoy was before Magna Convoy DX.

Prime_Time123
But, take a look, it's buster Prime, and what about Jetfire?

take a look at the legs, they're darker, maybe, for a rust effect, also, they look a bit mettalic, the normal Jetfire also had white/gray details on shoulder and arms, where are those? it is maybe, a premium Jetfire, but it is just a suppose...

Oh yeah that's right, How can I forgot about that..... Thats the three gift set box I have which I haven't open nor will open in the forseable future. I apologize for going off on a tangent. Back to topic...
seeker311
if this makes it to the states, it would make sense why I held off buying them seperately.
grimlock1972
if this comes to the states and that buster prime has his gun and its not totally priced out of whack ill be all over it as ill use buster prime as my standard Prime and combine that jet fire with my Hasbro leader Prime to make and display power up prime


and am the only one who thinks that if it does make it state side it has a good chance of being an exclusive?
ian2800
this is so unfair, I just got buster prime and now there's another with a buster jetfire!

That's what I was thinking. What's the point of releasing a Buster Prime without his guns? It isn't like it would hinder the combining between the two figures since it was advertised to transform with Leader Jetfire anyways. And truck mode must look like shit since there are no gas tanks.

*sigh*

Hello? Regular Prime's NON-TRANSFORMING gas tanks?

Come on, people, THINK for once....
Knightdramon
THINK indeed. Does it have to be separated from the back and combined AND held in place for it to be the buster gun? For all we know the gas tanks\guns are just stored in the back!

Ironically enough this news and picture came out just when I received my Buster Prime, but I'll get this one as well if Jetfire is decent.

Sadly, it lacks any passable packaging as it looks like ROTF Leader packaging blown up to accommodate two figures, nothing like the previous leader bundles.
Viking Spawn
I may still want this. Is it just me, or isn't the head the Buster version either? Hard to tell by the pic.
just1nj
i think jetfire is the same. gotta feeling. woooo-hooooo.
ZeroEdge
This two pack doesn't sound like it's gonna be friendly for the wallet.
tarZen
Well, if that image is to be trusted, that Jetfire's got grey in place of blue, and really shiny knees (chrome?). And that sure looks like a Buster OP with faceplate. I've already got 3 versions of this mold and Jetfire, but I sure ain't gonna pass on an OP giftset. Not after I paid some crazy prices for the ones before this.
