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? Pllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssssse :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY:

I promise to give you some tips on designing your toys. ;) ;)


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.

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.
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 black to darken red paint can make it look dull instead of just darkenin it

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.

I already own Buster, and Black Jetwing...

Having a shield and gun did not sell me previously, and the shiny paintjob is still not working for me. With Ultra Magnus priced around $85, I doubt this will be anywhere within my price range, plus, 3 ROTF Prime molds are abit too much IMO.

Unless this thing is below $140USD, I have no interest. >:oP

I'd like a version of this mold that has both the Striker and Jetwing accessories. Heck, I'd even take a version of Jetwing prime that has chrome parts.

Great.

You just HAD to show the high quality images, didn't you?

I wanted him, but was conflicted about the price.

Now I HAVE to get him!

At first, I wanted him because he is a very impressive piece. Then I saw how much he would cost me if I wanted to add him to my collection. Now I am thinking "Maybe not" because he costs more than what I paid for my "2010" Predaking set.

Okay... Granted, I got that piece on sale. But even then... It is the same price as the set originally cost! :michaelbay: I mean... I guess I'll look for another piece to add to my collection. :grin:

Expensive, superior exclusives! But still... Stuff like this makes me wish that Hasbro would step up their game. If not, then I need to make one of those commercials showing poor collectors who get stuck with what Walmart (who had a nice, basic exclusive of this version of Optimus Prime) and Target give us! ;)

Besides, I am hoping that if Takara Tomy reissues this into the Japanese market, that they use the same gold detailing used on the Walmart exclusive variant of him. =P~ I mean... :michaelbay:

Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
I'm having a real hard time ignoring this now. There's still not one version of a movie Optimus which contains all the features that I like, but this one might have the most prominent ones. I don't like the handheld blades, but I do like that they've got the silver detailing. It's got a facemask, pinstriping (albeit pale blue and not white) and the DoTM abdomen. Yeah it doesn't have the Buster's brilliant gun, but if that fella here on the forums mass produces his custom guns that'll sort that out.

Argh! I want it!

Can someone tell me why Robotkingdom sells these for $50 less than TFSource or BigBadToyStore? And do all of those sites ship to the U.S.? And is there a customs or import tax coming from Japan?

First off, it's only a $40 difference and this is an asian market exclusive which doesn't include Japan. Robotkingdom is based in Hong Kong and yes they do ship to the U.S. which will run about $26 and some change.

BBTS and TFSource are both U.S. based so it goes without saying they ship to the U.S. They also have higher importing costs as well as your usual mark up for profit which accounts for the difference in price. There may or may not be other factors that I am not considering but those are the main ones.

The U.S. also doesn't have any customs or import tax so that question is no.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.
