    Not in this paint job, no. TakaraTomy are charging more for this toy than the usual Leader class price.

    This is so badass.... I'm sad that I won't buying it though... Except, this IS freaggin awesome. Just wish that's they woulda actually used the real flame design over modifying the exsisting flames to work with the ones that do look right. Oh well.

    Lets hope the price for this piece is friendly enough to everybody, unlike its predecessor MA-21. :redface2:

    Looks good, looking forward to getting the shipping notice :)  Still needs some paintwork to bring out the details, and new hands and such like, but as a base deco I definitely prefer this one to the regular flavour.

    Well, that package makes it obvious this is gonna be Japanese-only, at least for the foreseeable future. The packaging features japanese text right under his name, they haven't bothered changing his bio text (Hasbro changes them with every repaint, retool and repack) and the feature call-out for the Ion blaster is engrishy. "back tanks"?

    Thanks for that link... It looks really good!!!! The paint job looks really superior... Pity that the rest of the truck isn't chromed like the grille.. But still looks good with the more accurate paint applications..

    Judging from the packaging of the buster prime, I'm almost sure that Hasbro will market this as well minus the Japanese sticker... So I think those in the US or UK shouldn't worry abt not getting it...

    Can't wait to get it!!! I've already preordered it from my local specialty store..

    shame they cut corners. I mean, if you're gonna run the set "right" why not go the full 10 yards with it? I mean this in regards especially to the flame patters. The front fenders, the blue from the flames stops too soon (should continue to the edge) another eye sore is the flames above the doors. There should be a small wisp of flame there as well, not a straight edged cut from the windshield's red to the top of the door's blue. Also on the sleeper cab area, the flames just ..."stop"

    The tool box under each door should be at least silver (chromed would be even nicer)
    Also, as accurate as the flame patterns are, they are wrong on the read fenders. there should be only 1 flame, starting from the front most part, instead, they repeat that flame again it seems.
