    I still have a weird feeling that there is going to be an Ultimate Version of this figure. Buster, Jetwing, and Striker all combined into one set. At least one can hope . . . . .

    Thank you! That's fine with me. I image this release will probably be the same. :)

    I am so torn on this. I have the original buster, the clear, and the original striker. But my striker is missing a few pain apps, which makes him look very odd. It'd probably be cheaper to just buy this instead of hunting down a regular striker.

    But then I also wanted to save money to buy masterpiece Soundwave and TRU Optimus. Ugh all these schemes Takara comes up with to make spend more money :crazy:

    Takara still needs to release a chromed/painted Buster version of Jetwing Prime. XD

    That's what giving me pause. I don't own a version of the DotM leader Prime, and this seems to be the best deco, but I really wanted the Jetwing parts.

    As much as I want this fig, I've already got one too many movieverse Primes--ROTF, Buster, and Jetwing. And then there's the DMK kit I haven't even started on.

    Price aside, I'm fast running out of space in my display room.

    In retrospect, I would have passed on Jetwing and opted for Striker instead, as the latter seems to have more display possibilities with his guns, shield and "stealth" alt mode than a simple jetpack.

    ^ Yeah, I haven't even cracked open my DMK kit yet, let open taken the time to put him together. Maybe this weekend. I guess I can just display him next to DOTM Buster Prime (in alt mode), and keep Jetwing Prime separate, and the two Striker Primes (original DA-28 and this ASP-01) together as another display.

    The reason for my delay is that I'm still planning the build.

    For some reason, I just can't stand the brownish gray color they used for the metal parts. I'm going to do a full drybrush weathering on his metal parts, and give the plastic some additional shine with either FFP or a gloss top coat. Amateur stuff, I know, but then I am pretty much an amateur. So far, I've only built Gundam kits and flattened the shine on the plastic with a coat of clear matte.

    The jetwing backpack is also pretty secure on Buster even without the notch. Really, the biggest issue I have with Buster Jetwing are the arm blades..

    I have a buster prime with a bunch of mods and paint apps to it. It just lacks the striker accessories. I'm gonna take the smark option and since its the exact smae paint job as buster, I'm just gonna buy Big hache's shapeways dotm gun and make a custom grill/armour for vehicle mode. Save $100+ and looks just as bad ass. This mould I think is more for people who missed out on the buster mould.

    Why are Bayverse toys still being released when we're deep into TF: Prime?

    Some of us like Bayverse toys enough to keep buying them. Surprising, I know. XD
