    Since I'm a Diaclone and G1 collector, I hope some of you can help me out. Does the ROTF leader Jetfire fit on this one too? I've compared the pictures with those of the ROTF DVD Exclusive and they look almost identical. Hope you guys can answer my question before I push the button.

    it should! it's the same mold as the rotf buster prime, the one with the fuel tanks that become a gun.

    and that came packaged with jetfire.

    so it SHOULD fit into jetfire too.

    Good looking for a Scourge for the most part, paint is kinda rough and the
    chrome is kinda random as before mentioned, get the two versions or this and with some swapping it could be made useable :) 

    But pass none the less.

    Have to buy the original Jetwing OP & this nightwatch version in order to make the Jetwing more "Premium" look definitely not worth the $.

    Surprisingly (for myself anyway) I am not interested in this. If the wings were black, maybe.

    Yep. This will be my 8th copy of this mold. Got them all except for the 2-pack Buster Prime which is only slightly different from my regular Buster. I do love this mold. It might very well be my favorite TF of all time (at least until Hercules comes out and even then Leader Prime will still be my favorite single TF).

    I can't understand why in the hell hasbro will not release this in USA or the Jet-Wing Optimus Prime? why do we need to spend so much money in a japan release when they have the marked here it just make me mad. this Jet-Wing looks great but man 194.99 is to much.
    damn you hasbro!!!!!
    sorry a frustrated hobbyist

    Maybe Hasbro will eventually release but at a much later time.

    194 is too much for the original one. Not too much for this one, cause in all seriousness, do you ever see it coming down below that? This isnt some price bloated/inflated low number rumored multiple store exclusive animated black prime.

    They could have done more chroming to the figure which can make this piece a more "exclusive feel"

    i think they should've just resold the jetwings as an upgrade kit or something. do we really need another nightwatch?

    is to much for a figure that can be released in the US maybe! with less paint aps but easy to find at walmart or TRU in a $ 79.99 range. that is a price that a father and Son transformers hobbyist can afford :thumbs2:
