    I preordered this last month. I can't wait. This and and the Amazon Japan exclusive Leader black Prime is damaging to my wallet.

    Ok the face looks better than he previously looked (the eyes part).

    Still hate the crazy amount of silver glimmer, though. But he's become tempting again :)  maybe it is fun to pose him next to my regular Hasbro one...

    Spectacular. Love the chrome grill and outlined flames.

    While i don't care for the mouth face, it's nice that they did this representation of Prime: i'm fairly surprised though with the level of goodness on display that they didn't figure out some kind of "face swap" ala MP Starscream or Galaxy Convoy so you could have both... guess they had to save something for the TF3 leader ;)

    Really nice. I wish one of the third party guys would come up with some kind of conversion kit for regular RotF Prime that would let his stacks turn into guns.

    Looks great, but I do prefer the head with his face plate on, even if it is a bit less detailed.

    Not enough change for me to regret buying Hasbro's version.

    Awesome. i've been waiting to get this so i can use the american version for my jetfire combo, and this as prime.

    Question, i was under the impression that he would have two guns, but only see one. Can someone confirm this? i'm pretty sure both of his smokestacks turn into guns.

    Oh, and the extra flame pinstripe detail on his lower chest (vehicles firewall/bulkhead) is an awesome touch. it's little things like that that change the overall coolness and makes it better to me.

    Randy!

    Buster Prime has always just had the one gun. Both smokestacks transform, but they combine together to form the one gun, instead of forming seperate guns like the Voyager class Prime mold.

    I really want to do a part swap with Amazon OP and Buster OP. Swapping the grey on Amazon OP for the silver on Buster OP. I will end up with a regular-ish OP but also an ultimate black OP!! I can't decide whether this is genius or madness tho..
