    Oh.

    Hello.

    I was just thinking how nice it would be to own you.

    Please don't be over $200.

    Yup. Not "ultimate" edition otherwise.

    Damnit! I only got the previous version 3, or 4 years ago. Wait, THAT LONG! I swore I just bought it last year. Huh. I guess that's a side effect of the excitement of it being my first version of the mold.

    To me Ultimate would be the choice of both. We know it's possible from Armor Knight Optimus.

    Exactly. From now on, that should be the standard with a Leader Optimus.

    But if I had to choose one, I'd choose open face like this, so I'm happy.

    Can't wait to see what kind of paint job this comes with. I already have Buster, but depending on pinstripe color and other paint apps, I may be tempted to get this, too. At least we know it will look a lot better than that garbage TRU release.

    If this has either a removable battle mask or a head that scan switch faces by swiveling like Armor Knight Optimus, that would definitely drive up appeal for me. Love having options.

    As far as weapons I'm guessing this will have a buster rifle, 2 swords and maybe some exclusive new weapons like a battle axe from DOTM. Maybe a shield too.

    damn just posted this in toys forum


    Anyway one can tell the paintjob is more advanced than buster or APS01. Just look at the arms fully painted, the thigns etc. even the turbines on the jet pack is now blue instead of grey.

    I also see the blue is more blue than the purple blue of the regular buster version

    Anyway at least we know why the human alliance two pack is barely premieum. They were working on this release instead

    In any event I dont need this as I already have the FWI 04 jetwing on my striker prime which is far more movie accurate, as well as buster prime and APS01.

    However they won't stop me from buying two of these

    Can't wait to see the stupid price for this. Also, why give Optimus a ton of weapons and then no facemask? That's completely stupid as well.

    Obviously you can look forward to getting this mold in various "premium" and "ultimate" and "supreme" versions until the mold self destructs. I wonder how many people have fallen for the various releases only to see yet another. I'm still very happy with my ROTF Leader. The Buster was nice but I don't care for the movies enough to drop that kind of money supporting them.

    I don't have any of these, have heard the mold is Masterpiece quality, and Jetwing is one of the few parts of the movies I like. If it comes with a faceplate somehow, I might have to get this. Although, it'll probably be really expensive like their recent Human Alliance set (Want that too.)...

    I'm hoping that this isn't insanely priced. I really like this mold but I cringe thinking about how much this might cost. The paint job looks like it's going to be absolutely incredible though.

    In terms of engineering and quality, RotF Prime and all his subsequent incarnations trump anything that the MP line has given us since MP10.

    My two cents.

    It's a Hasbro Asia exclusive, we'll be very, very lucky if it's not insanely priced (see Human Alliance Soundwave/Barricade two pack, and MP-11SW Masterpiece Skywarp).
