    I received my set today.

    Besides the blue pinstriping and different face, Optimus's ion blaster has a lot less burn mark on the tip of the barrel. As much as I loved the original Buster Prime, the faceplate and more subdued pin striping really make this figure perfect!

    Jetfire, while his SR-71 mode is nearly identical to the original, all his black plastic (in robot mode), blue plastic, and light gray plastic is now either a very dark metallic brown or a lighter dark brown. He has tons of new paint applications, and detailing. Really nice looking set.

    You can see pictures at the link below.

    Anyone seen a jet mode pic of Jetfire? I'm very curious as to just how similar it is to the regular version.

    Funny how the back of the box shows the plate-less Buster Prime (and regular Jetfire in the combo, too)! :p 

    Jetfire looks so much better now that he has a more accurate paintjob. I never liked the blue plastic..or the cheap light grey plastic. I'm a bit bummed I caved in and bought the regular one a while back now, although I love my faceplate-less Buster Prime just enough to not feel bad about that one.

    I'd still like to get my hands on that Jetfire if anybody is willing to let it go for a *reasonable* price..

    Thanks for the pics Randy!

    Thanks for the pics, mine should be coming this week too...

    As for the back of the box at least they should have photochopped away the plate-less prime in jetpower and buster prime.

    I am probably going to pick this set up in a couple of months if it is still around and sell my Hasbro Prime and Jetfire.

    You're welcome guys, I added some combined pictures too! :) 

    I didn't transform mine yet, but the jet mode is almost identical to the original. All the paint details are the same color and they same in detail, the only differences are the robot parts under the jet, and the nose cone and the pointed cone parts on the wings are a darker glossy black. Everything else is identical.

    Glossy black? That change seems rather pointless.

    Randy, in your opinion is the blue pinstriping or the white better?

    I honestly like the blue better. It's not as attention getting, which I think is a good thing, as the white draws your eyes to it. It's definitely more accurate looking (as you don't see the pin striping from a distance in the film, like with the white, but only on close ups is it really noticeable).

    Damn, this set looks great! Both figures are superior to their US versions. In a way, I wish I would have waited.

    As terrific as the single-packed Buster Prime is, this set pretty much renders it superfluous. :/

    I already have a leader prime and for 30 bucks I can get a fansproject gun for it.

    But that jetfire does interest me

    After you reminded me of the actual truck's pin striping and I saw some more up close pics of the blue pins he's has officially grown on me faster than foot fungus.

    Randy, since it seems you also have the original Buster Prime could you post a picture of the 2-pack version holding both Transformable guns?

    Fans Project never made a gun for ROTF Prime as far as I know. You must be thinking of one of the other after-market accessory groups.

    Hey Randy,

    my BIG question is:

    What electronic sounds (in robot, in-between transformation, & vehicle) do both toys have? Are the sounds any different from the electronic sounds in the American released figures?

    And also, are the electronic lights the same colors as in all the previous releases of ROTF Leader Optimus & Jetfire or have they been changed?

    Thanks! Those two toys look amazing, and it's a good thing I waited to buy any ROTF Leaders because I had a feeling they would do something like this!

    :) 

    The sounds and electronics are the same as the normal American versions. Optimus has green lights in his eyes and red in his chest and Jetfire has red in his eyes and chest. :) 

    The only versions that were different were the European Megatron & Optimus (I don't know about Jetfire), which only said their names instead of "I am (Name)".
