If my online store of choice carries this, I'll get this instead of DA-28 Striker perhaps.
I will prefer Striker OP than this Nightwatch OP
Does anyone know if all of the wing is chrome? The Guns and the wing hinge appear to be, but I can't tell if the wing itself is chrome or painted silver...
Wow, that's incredibly hideous.
Looks chrome to me
wow cool with a touch of chrome, but if its chrome like mold buster would be awesome again ...
I literally bought the last one off of BBTS before they sold out. Getting the Asia exclusive too.
That was probably the one I cancelled!
274$ on BBTS
Yeah, that is a significant mark-up on BBTS vs. RobotKingdom ($287 shipped vs. $237 shipped for me). I do love BBTS, but sometimes RK has the better deal and I do love to save money.
What a marked up by BBTS,great job done & nobody will be buying from them or will there be?
what are the chances of a mark down after a few month of no one buying from BBTS?
Some people, at least here in the States, may feel more comfortable buying from a retailer with a good customer service reputation than an overseas retailer where dealing with any problems (missing package, broken or missing parts, wrong item sent, etc.) may be harder and/or longer to resolve. I agree Robot Kingdom has the better deal and as long as it isn't sold out on their site come December, I'll probably pick it up from them. If not, at least I have a preorder on BBTS and can always cancel sometime in the next couple of months.
At $287 is it worth it? You need to think about two possible options for that amount:
A)Getting 2 Leaders, 2 Voyagers and 10 Deluxes. Some are rumors but this could include Leader Megatron, Shockwave, Voyager Skyhammer repaint, DLX Que/Wheeljacks, Mirage, Soundwave, Leadfoot and Twin Twist, weaponized Roadbuster, Buzzsaw and others
B)A black Optimus Prime or repurpose Scourge/Nemesis Prime with Jet-Wing. The base figure is like the best OP in the movie line, Buster fuel tank/exhaust cannon, retooled abs, retooled elbows, added Mech-Tech ports and the large jet pack & guns in chrome.
Buster OP is an exclusive to Japan already, Jet-Wing also, Plus it is a repaint and is probably going to be limited. Am I missing anything else?
What are the chances for Hasbro doing a repaint similar to this? Would you pass over those characters for one?
Your thoughts on mine comparison
I finally broke down and pre-ordered this, I'm turning into a sucker for black movie Primes. I'm going to have to sacrifice some of my other TFs on the alter of eBay to take the sting out of the cost.
I can't say that I'm all that interested in the chromed guns and jet pack, just the black Buster Prime with the new abs.
It would be awesome if it also comes with a red repaint of the Exclusive Battle Blades Add-On or hopefully they well sell a 'Nightwatch' version
Even though it is Black repaint but is one of the worst Black repaint for OP
^ then maybe it should have been named Nemesis Prime.
Any more news or pics on this.I am kind of losing interest and need convincing to get this.
^ How about an unconvincing? Save your money. If you've got that money to burn, at least get the original Jetwing instead, or that Buster/Jetfire two-pack.
