    None?

    I don't think TRU has shared any of their recent Transformers exclusives except for Rodimus last year, which was via Entertainment Earth (and, because of that, available at EE's booth at SDCC last year).

    EDIT:

    Nevermind! Sorry I thought I clicked on the Thundercracker thread. Brainfart.

    Since it's Striker we're talking about...maaaaaaaaaybe? They are offering the Jetwing Optimus via Amazon. I wouldn't assume anything though. Getting the Amazon stuff we are was a total surprise. It's a trend I hope they continue, but I'm not holding my breath until periodic Amazon exclusives become the norm.

    Folks here can say whatever they want to say "Meh", "Not worth the price tag", "underwhelmed" & so on & so forth but when it's out everyone will flock & buy.

    then many months down the road, for those who missed it, you'll hear the typical rants, ravings & emo groans like how i missed this fig like Buster Prime ..blah...blah...blah..

    Typical! lol

    The premium series returns. This version has lighter colors than The Japanese Striker. Also I think this will cost about $200, considering the Asia Exclusive Jetwing Prime cost much more than the Japanese version.

    I'll need to see larger pictures and the price before I make a decision. If its under $150 (which I doubt), then maybe I'll save up for it. But I already own both buster and striker, and I actually prefer the darker scheme on striker. If it's over $150, pass.

    If it is around $200,i do not think it justify the price.

    the chrom eis on the bumber (not on the shield) and on the parts over the windshield

    exactly like on the Buster Prime IMHO, so no advantage. also it seems there no striping on the flames...

    If anybody who knew told us, wouldn't it kind of defeat the purpose of the title "PREMIUM series"?

    I wonder why they don't call it MPM-03 Masterpiece Movie Optimus Prime. it looks really nice. A top-tier collector item.
