Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
Thank You to our sponsor Kapow Toys for letting us know that APS, or Asia Premium Series 01 Striker Optimus Prime's shillouette has been posted at a new site www.transformersasia.com.

The website has the following remarks about the figure:
-Metallic Paint And Chromed Parts

-Special Designed Packaging

-Bonus Weapon

-Limited Production


The release date is scheduled for September 30th and will see release in Asia, with the exclusion of Japan, which seems to be the pattern for many of Hasbro's Asian releases.

Interested in what the final product is. I liked Striker Prime but didn't get him. I'd like to see a more faithful representation of his movie deco.

OK, since I missed the first release, I may get this to display with my Buster Prime. Buster can be in alt mode, Striker in bot.

considering most of the asian releases are being released here I would say yes.

Plus I bet most of our sponsors will be getting a few.

I hate the milking of this mold.
I have Buster Prime version 2.

The Jetwing isn't movie accurate, this Striker version is just silly. Release all the parts in one package, and make them movie accurate. Not one of the older designs.

Something really went wrong with the DOTM line, only the bodies look fairly screen accurate, but the guns and addons are all way of. Why?????

Well, it's exactly what I was asking for. If it ends up being within the realm of reasonably priced imports, I'm in. Looks nice, I am impressed.

Weapon: Battle Blades
Here's my problem with this, to me Optimus was never super shinny and chromed up, his legs and arms were a dirty metallic/metal. Yes his grill on his truck mode was chrome and looked cool but the main selling point of this is that his body is all silver and chrome but Prime never looked that way in the film. I'm not saying this dose not look good, the paint and such looks fantastic but I'm just not a fan of it. I missed the first striker but to me he looks a little more accurate. The darker plastic make it look more like the CGI. The only problem is the original cost an arm and a leg and if your like me and want the extra battle blades, his axe, and his shield it costs more than $200. If this is cheap enough I might get him, one of my main fears though is the chrome on the bottom of his feet getting scratched up, and right now I don't have enough space to make a proper display for him, so he'll end up in a box with the rest of my Transformers which will not be good for that chrome. Only time will tell, the price might completely sway my opinion but for now I'm sticking with the original....... Takara makes things so difficult.

Now that's a superior Movie Prime since Buster Prime.

So Takara, if the DOTM line is still active in your area, can you make DOTM Megs and Shockwave (in Leader size), Deluxe and HA Mirage, HA Que, Topspin, Armored Leadfoot, Crowbar, Leader Blackout (the size of Battle Ops Bee), and Leader Fallen?

he does have metalic greys in the movie. But what the toys get wrong is the shade of red and blue. The original striker has a great blue but wasnt dark enough, and the redneeds to be more like a ferrari red but darker. Then again red is a hard color to match. Adding a little black to darken red paint can make it look dull instead of just darkenin it

not to throw this off topic, but I am disgruntled at knowing we won't be getting figures that need to be done, like Leader Blackout, HA Topspin and Voyager Crankcase/Dred.

I actually prefer the original striker prime, like what Blurrz said it's like Buster prime all over again and since I have both DA-28 and Buster prime, I see no real reason to get this. But of course for those who missed DA-28, this is a good buy for them.
