    Hey all, a question for you. I have three iterations:

    1. original ROTF Hasbro OP
    2. Buster Optimus
    3. Amazon Jetwing Prime

    Thinking likely I should open Jetwing Prime, most play value and likely of the three to be the least valuable.

    Definitely Jetwing. He doesn't have spring loaded hair-trigger swords like the other two do, plus the gun from Buster Prime.

    This, plus he has DOTM-accurate abs and forearms.

    I have 3 versions as well, Buster misb Asia Striker all armored up with the UFO trailer and regular Hasbro leader in the FWI Jetfire mode. I really wish we were getting ROTF type toys for TF4 but oh well I guess.

    Buster is the best of those from a display perspective, but Jetwing will probably be the one you want to open.

    Yeah, out of the above auctions I would choose Jetwing and here are my reasons:

    I) The chrome on Buster may tarnish
    II) Buster Prime doesn't come with his iconic face-plate look...if I recall correctly.
