    Except they totally are. I have a lot more Deluxes than big-box toys. Even if I decide to spring for this guy, I'm pretty sure I came out ahead.

    Not that Walmart isn't evil for tons of other reasons.

    It's apparently $100 to buy it off a shelf in Japan. Everything else is shipping/middlemen.

    It's funny how much of a difference a different shade of gray plastic makes. It looks like a totally different figure, with a whole new paint job, while actually it has the exact same paint-apps as the regular ROTF figure. (the only difference I see is the blue paint on his chest side-windows)

    This pic worries me that they didn't change all the gray plastic:

    It's a weird mish-mash of gray colors.

    It's just a slightly remolded ROTF leader Prime.

    Is it? Eh, then Hasbro should release it with just dark grey plastic. I'm just saying they COULD/SHOULD release this mold.

    Judging from the black plastic used from this picture and giving TakaraTOMY the benefit of the doubt that the final product will have appropriate silver highlights, Buster Optimus Prime still seems like the definite movie Optimus Prime.

    If only Hasbro would release this in the US, even if it had a regular paint scheme.
