    You talkin about the last movie's Takara Premium with the chrome? Now that's one I got when it first came out. I know how Takara-exclusive figures/versions can sell out quick everywhere and be almost non-existent on ebay. See Galaxy Force Primus.

    I'm definitely going to have to cop this ASAP!

    In my mind, I think this will look great with the upcoming GoW LED gun accessory set!

    Yes.

    That's the release date that was announced when we first heard about "Buster Optimus Prime" and didn't even know yet what it was.

    Who else will be selling this bad boy? I ordered my Masterpiece Megatron through Fan2fan a couple of years ago at what seemed like a good price, until they got me after the fact with a $52 shipping charge. I'd love to have Buster Prime, but I don't want to pay $130 to get him.

    Damn, man. $52?! That had to have been EMS, right? Still seems a little high....he's always been rather fair with me, as far as that goes.

    He offered me the choice of EMS or SAL but there was only a dollar difference in price; I still have the emails.

    18 pages is a bit much for me to click through right now for hopefully finding the answer to a simple question, so; Is Hasbro's asses planning on releases a faceplate-less Prime like this at some point? Anyone?

    No word. In my opinion though the amount of new paints apps here goes above and beyond what a "premium" US release would include.

    Hasbro AND TakaraTomy. For the last few years, the designs have been a joint venture between their design teams.

    So they both share in the win and fail, depending on your point of view.
