We have a couple of new images of the upcoming Asian market exclusive APS-01 Striker Otpimus Prime. Our first image comes to us from the Hobby Ark Toy Store facebook page, and gives a look at the figure's packaging. The second image, courtesy of the Planet Iacon facebook, is of the actual figure. The figure is scheduled to release on November 7th.

I still want the option to pull out the smokestacks to use the Jetwings backpack and the Buster Gun.

You can, just de-pin the blue pieces with the smoke barrels, and swap.
That's what I'm doing.

Not quite so simple. It is the remolded, arguably better chest for DOTM from the ROTF mold. The swords are separate pieces from the arms. They are no longer a gimmick in the figure. This is a welcome change for me. The shield transforms and can be added to the truck for an armored mode. The gun breaks down into smaller guns. It's got enough new things going for it that I'm committed to it. I already own the Buster Prime/Jetfire combo and that is a lovely set of toys. This looks just as good if not better to me. The pictures aren't clear enough to me to see if it actually comes with the buster cannon too.

No Buster gun, the Mufflers are permanently attached.
Like i said above, they can be swapped with jet-wing Prime, if you want the Buster cannon, but then you can't attach the small guns.

it's one or the other.

I was scouring the galleries to find our for myself and just saw your response, thanks. I'll be fine with the figure as is. It has plenty of weaponry already. Two swords, a large cannon (or two smaller guns, depending on taste) and the shield. I'm not swapping out pinned pieces on my TF figures. It would end in tears. I don't have a Jetwing anyway. :grin:

Yeah, I may not, Besides the ROTF Upgrade kit for Prime, I bet a 3rd P will come out with a movie accurate Jetpack, which would be nice, as the Takara version is about as accurate as a Turd. It's cool for a Gundam style Prime, but not movie accurate.

I like that the packaging, will fit in with Tak MP's.
That sells it for me.

I have always wanted to have a Prime like this! :grin:
But it is an Asian exclusive. :-(
And Hasbore makes too many BB's. :oops:

Again, so what? If you can use the internet, you can figure out how to buy this fella. I can think of at least one store off the top of my head that is selling them.

If I had the money I'd jump on this one in a heartbeat.

It's got an interesting box. Has there ever been a Transformers figure that comes in a box with a shoebox type lid.
