    It shows how much focus i pay to reading...:D 

    Edit: Then again i never gave a flying F about those shenanigans most people love to do on April 1st, so that date means very little to me except the day of annoyance specially on behalf of movie sites.

    It is so far a Japan-Only exclusive toy. It came out November 20th.

    We do not know yet if it will be brought over to America. But most likely it won't unless they remove the chrome and some paint apps to keep the cost down.

    Anyone seen side shots of the firgure? I'm curious to see how the shoulder panels look with the new flames compared to the old one.

    Thanks for the description. Words and opinions sometimes speak more than pictures. I just want to get mine in-hand so I can start being in awe of his awesomenessitude.

    Why call him "Buster Optimus Prime" instead of "Premium Optimus Prime"?

    I would think that Hasbro will release the black prime over this in the near future. To the general public there may not be a market for this other than for the collectors. Think of it as a Malibu Stacy with a hat. To their public's eyes there is not much of a difference.

    If any of you is on the fence getting this, I would suggest on getting it now while it's still under $100. I have a feeling that this may be a limited run. As posted earlier, HLJ labeled this as discontinued.

    Then again I may be wrong. :gen069:

    Probably because there is no Premium line and due to his new Ion Blaster. Buster tends to be a term used for robots in Japan with lots of weapons/big guns.

    I Like him! Maybe he could be sold as a Premium in the USA later on in the year. I like the chromed parts on him. Or, sell his gun as an upgrade kit.
