As long as it's not the black repaint I'm so in
Might go for this one, missed buster prime and I didn't go for standard striker prime either.
IIRC I think he was like $90. But the dollar was pretty strong at the time and inflation seems to hit toy prices everywhere else a lot harder than in the US
Edit: But I wouldn't be surprised to see this figure go for at $160-180. Shit, the original Striker Prime was $120 then jumped up to $130 so...
^Wow. I'm sorta glad I held off on getting the DOTM 2 Pack as I didn't care for Jetfire too much, let's hope this one looks great...
The I got the original ROTF Prime Jetfire combo pack for $150. Didn't it go up to $250?
I'll be happy if this Prime goes for under $200. Especially if he's cool enough to get. It sounds great, but if they've chromed his head and his crotch plate and made his hands metallic while paining everything else yellow and pink polka dots I won't be on board.
I'm exaggerating, but there have been plenty of WTF repaints.
Hmm very tempting. I'll bite if he is under 200 but my guess is he'll be more then that.
Now I have to sell my regular striker prime
Shit. I may have to get to this after all.
Dammit, I already own Buster Prime (DOTM release), Jetwing Prime, Striker Prime, and DMK Prime. I don't need another one to drain my wallet like a red, blue, and chrome vampire. XD
Though the designation of 01 makes me wonder if this is only the first in a line of premium deco Leader figures. Premium Ironhide and Sentinel Prime would make this line irresistible to me!
This release is heaps exciting. If it's too expensive, imma buy a second hand normal striker
This. Though, whatever the price.. It's gonna be bought regardless.
Sounds really awesome, but I'm sure it'll be way out of my price range.
expect it to be black jetwing / mp-10 price.
Yeah, I think the aesthetic shouldn't be too 'disco', then again I am a pretty thorough Transformers United collector and have been moving anything like Buster Optimus Prime up my priority list again now the Jetpower boxed set has been reissued for DOTM.
My first reaction to this was 'There'll be no one to stop us this time...' from Star Wars, but things didn't work out so well for Darth Vader! Hopefully I have better fortunes getting hold of this should I choose to go after it. Basically I have to pay for an update on my car registration and I was hoping to pad out a tidy little Robot Kingdom order around MP-11s when it arrives there.
Sounds like I'm just going to be from afar. Awwww.
Sounds like he'll cost close to 200 USD.
Also, from the description, it sounds like it's the Striker package with buster paint.
The extra weapon also makes it worth a lot more. limited edition weapon man. so much limited editioness
I already have the normal Striker Prime,hence me too don't think will get this.
That's fair enough; I on the other hand don't have Buster/Jetpower or Striker yet, ao this is a possibility for me. Of course the reason for that is I've made other items higher priorities to collect lol. As such I am still thinking of securing the Amazon Exclisive MP-11s and MP-12 before this; I preordered the limited MP-13 as soon as I saw it on the news page.
Well, it's what a lot of people wanted. Aside from being jealous of the extra weapon, no way this is for me. I really like the unchromed look of Striker anyway.
