    Whoa, is this for real? An affordable Buster Prime with DOTM ab molding, shiny chrome, and white flame pinstriping? And Jetfire? Both of whom I missed out on the first time around? HELLS YES.

    Curiously, I see parts of the abs and waist in gray molding in some of the product shots? Or is that an add-on piece from Jetfire's combined transformation? (I never owned either mold so I can't tell.) Maybe they'll replace those pieces in the final (re-) release? Here's to hoping, but it's not a deal-breaker. And definitely a nice surprise for those of us (like me) who missed these guys during the first go! Now I'm debating whether to pick this up or the upcoming Stryker Optimus Prime! Thinking more on it, I already have DMK Prime (haven't opened the box and put him together yet) and he's the definitive Movie Prime, IMHO, so I'll probably keep Buster Prime (and Jetfire) looking pretty in alt mode. =)

    Really glad I resisted evilBay prices for the ROTF two-pack; patience does pay off!

    Nice! I don't like 99% of the movie designs, but that Buster Prime is a damn work of art and I've been wanting it ever since ROTF.

    I wonder what the BBTS mark-up price will be? Over $200, I'll bet. Still beats paying over $400 or something ridiculous from eBay.

    Since they apparently went to the trouble of designing a new box, i'm wondering if there are going to be deco changes?

    Will this have a US/UK release, or is it Japanese/Australia exclusive like the previous 2-pack.

    That's cool news! But I already have the two pack. It's great for anyone who missed out on it though.
