    This pisses me off, I can't believe they are releasing this instead of a buster jetwing like I want.

    Why did I pick such an expensive hobby? Seriously???

    I am such a sucker for the Leader Prime mold that I instantly pre-ordered this. I think it looks cool and definitely works better as a Scourge than the Amazon Japan black Leader Prime. That figur just didn't pull off the Scourge/Nemesis Prime look at all. Plus, I do love all the chrome. Win for me.

    Chrome = awesome, wings appear to be made of his trailer panels so it's perfect, BFG look good too. The use of turquoise, black, red gives a feeling of the darkside of OP. Too bad we'll never see it in the USA, guess I'll wait forever 'til Hasbro releases a version (if not jaws = pissed).

    I think I like the first black release more :)  anyway I'm glad I don't collect movie figures too, my budget is strained enough as it is this year after finally acquiring several personal grails.

    Pipes are rubber. Only the bottom portion could be chromed.

    So it looks like the only things chromed on the Prime figure itself are the air intakes/tanks on his shoulders and the sun visors. Anyone see anything else on the figure besides the jetpack and guns?

    EDIT: Interestingly enough, when I looked at the pic of Buster Prime in my signature, those tanks on his shoulders are not chromed. I may have to do a little bit of part swapping there.

    He's only black because that mass of descriptive prefixes is so dense that it's preventing light from escaping his surface.

    Sort of do want for the army of Scourges........but this is going to be rather expensive. I also don't want to be in the position of then wanting to buy regular Jetwings for t to face down.

    Will probably pass, I do agree with Josh that teal striping would've looked much better than the flames.

    Really liking this. The chrome almost makes it feel worth the price.

    This is the most amusing thing ever! It's like CALCULATED to tempt people who dig Takara exclusives.

    Black Optimus: check.
    Massive amounts of chrome: check
    Jetpack: check
