Hobby Ark Toy Store has posted a picture of the packaging for the Asia exclusive live action movie series Striker Optimus Prime. The Asia exclusive release is a premium version of the one released by Takara-Tomy in Japan last year. An out-of-package in-hand picture has been posted on the Hobbybase Facebook page, for those curious of how this one looks out of his box. As these pictures indicate, this release also includes the sword accessories that were Amazon Japan exclusives with the first release of the Striker Optimus Prime.

Do we know if it's entirely sealed, or if it has an opening flap?

I agree.


But i think this is going to sell okay all the same.

The boxart is sweet

Looks pretty good to me.

Do we know if the head's LED is still green or did they upgrade it for a blue one?
daimchoc
Oh, so it comes with the blades that we exclusives when they had released the Japan version. F'd. Also looks like parts of the shield uses some metallic colors.
Fort Max
Nice, glad I went for this one, going to replace my hasbro rotf prime.
juise
It's a shoe box?
Zildjian
You have to love that ALL of the robotic parts are silver EXCEPT the hands..... still the muted gray plastic.
Starscream Gaga
I did REALLY want one, but this in comparison with the Masterpieces, the Encore, the Prime and also the new Licensed LEGO sets that have been announced, this guy became low priority. I am now happy with my Buster and Jetwing Primes.

Not looking forward to the box for the Bruticus Maximus repaint :-(

I want this so hard, but I don't think I can budget it in...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he just has the regular gas tanks, right? Not the ones that come off to form the blaster?

Correct.

Striker guns can't mount on the Buster guns.

This was the figure that I had to let the preorder go. I just don't have the money for him like I thought I wld have. It sucks , but it came down to either him or MP Soundwave. G1 will always win though.

I'm such a Prime slut. So bought. XD
Sentinel
He does look pretty sweet. I'm really digging the box as it looks a bit more Masterpiece than regular release. The bot looks like he freaking stepped off the screen and that is what I love.

If they don't change the LED to blue (I really doubt they will), it is a 5-10 minute procedure. I've change about 15 of them since Leader Prime came out. It's relatively east if you have a soldering iron.

Yeah, what is that about? Buster Prime came with painted hands. This guy has a few more paint apps, such as the chest headlights, but they can't paint the hands? Was it a trade off or something?

You don't get much paint for $150 these days.

The bright Buster colors don't do it for me. I prefer the original muted/darker red and blue.

The one in this attachment is custom painted by Cooljazcustoms.

I like having both decos, although the darker works better for this mold, but I am a sucker for screen accuracy. Speaking of which, savio, do you still make those hip pieces? I may need some more.

I sold my buster / jetfire combo to get this one but im having a change of heart... I have the white strped buster and the original striker... Im gonna pass at this point because its just overkill for me. I just sold my Herc because of Giant... Dear god!! I think my collecting state of mind has changed

No hurry, but I am interested when you get around to making them again.

The Ironhide in one of the pictures interests me... But the Prime is nice too.
Deonasis
The differences are minimal but there are still 2 things that are holding me to order it now..

1) My desire to attach my shiny Nightwatch jetwing backpack to it. I will investigate minor modding or parts swapping (stressing the word minor here).

2) It has the word Series and 01 in its name. If say Brawl or Sentinel are added to make it a proper series, I will be a happy panda.
[Wing_Saber-X]
Ive already got myself more than enough Movie 2- Prime Leader class figs that I can shake a stick at. Buster 2-pack with Jetfire, Regular Hasbro, Black amazon Japan DVD exclusive, Family Mart Japan Crystal, Regular Striker Prime, Black-teal Jetpack Nightwatch Prime repaint, and Takara's regular ver. That's like, what? 5 or 6 versions of the SAME mould. While this incarnation is nice, I've got better ideas / wants/ priorities to spend my money on... with Encore Fortress Maximus being top of my list.
newbielives
Just pre ordered him can't wait to put him beside this guy

Weren't the other Asia exclusives sold under the Hasbro brand? Since this one is TT will it come out in Japan?

This piece will be Asia exclusive but i don't think it will come out from Japan

Same here. Brawl, Ironhide, and Sentinel Prime would be boss if done up in a premium deco in this line (almost like a continuation of the Movie Masterpiece line and Buster Prime). I have a feeling that Leader Bee is next in line for such special treatment though, blargh.

That looks fuckin sweet! Was Megatron just released too? I saw the ROTF mould with Dark Energon colours.

Megatron was or will be soon. I don't think he's part of the APS (Asian Premium Series) line though, just a general Asia release a la G1 red Leader Ironhide and G1 colors Leader Starscream. Megs' new deco does look nice but there's no chrome (as far as anyone's reported) and he's pricy for a repainted ROTF Leader Megs (nothing new engineering wise to the mold).

Striker prime does look fantastic.

Import only, this is actually a Hasbro Asia product.

They can keep a Leader BB repaint far as i'm concerned. Sentinel, and maybe Brawl, i'd bite. But the distinction here is they're potentially fairly complex repaints.....and the deco for APS-01 more or less already existed in it's entirety
thanks to Takara. I'm not sure if Hasbro Asia would be motivated to come up their own deco in those cases ?
