New Images of ROTF Buster Prime!

Postby Dead Metal » Fri Jul 24, 2009 5:28 am

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Seibertron.com member "Real Devastator" has found new photos of the upcoming TomyTakara remold of Transformers Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime called Buster Optimus Prime.
These photos show us the more Movie accurate paintjob and the details they highlight. They also give us a good look at his new head which seems to confirm that he does not have a retractable face-masc and his new blaster.
Click the first photo to see the original posting on ACToys with even more photos.

WOW :shock:

That thing is beeeeeautiful. I wish it had the face plate (maybe it does and it's totally removable). I'm on the fence about getting it only b/c money is tight. My wife just had our second child (another boy to indoctrinate in the ways of TFs and GI Joes!) so money is on the tight side. Regardless, I'm liking the paint job.

Again, WOW. Nice job Takara! :APPLAUSE:

Almost perfect, still not digging the face. Maybe they should have given him a more expressive face.

I have preorded it, but i am wary because it has no faceplate, and as much of a fan of the new premium paint scheme and the removable gun... the face plate is a problem for me.

I think he needs to have a removable face shield..

this will be a nice piece to pick up, but we need a 3rd party to do a face shield that snaps on to the face, or I suppose Takara Tomy may reissue a variant with a face shield..

either way, an open face version is not what I wanted most..

that news comes as a depressing blow to an almost perfect action figure of Movie Optimus Prime..

Why? Why do they have to come so close and then ruin it all by not going to the hilt.. it just doesn't make sense.. and I refuse to buy another figure just to mod it and switch heads..we shouldn't have to do that.. nope, no sir.. that blows..

so Now I love and at the same time hate this figure..

Maybe i-gear, fan project or someone else will see this as business opportunity, make a face plate for prime. Or change the whole head.... :-?

That is so sick, so awesome, it is a huge must buy. Faceplate or no faceplate, that paintjob is amazing and totally make him worth owning. And even if Hasbro releases a preimum which they almost certaily will, I doubt it'll be able to touch this.

BBTS, please post a preorder soon.

You sir, have my respect. Why is everyone making a big deal that he doesn't have a faceplate? Big whoop. I for one have awaited this version of Prime for a LONG time. Kinda sad, however, you people won't get it because it has a mouth. Oh well, more for me! Be this my first ever Transformers figure courtesy of Takara. You know what I say? Bring it on!

i agree with the above post
all those who are complaining about a freakin mouth plate.......get over yourselves.
ya sure it would be nice to see a removable one but during the whole movie you rarely see him with it on.
i think it's a fresh new look for prime and i can say that proud as i'm an optimus prime collector.

now...i've looked on BBTS but i can't find the pre-order page. can someone direct me to a link or an address where i can place my pre-order? this fig is well worth it as it's spot on movie accurate.

Honestly, I don't think that anyone can take issue with those who do not want this figure because of the faceplate.. I am buying this figure myself.. but while I am purchasing it at a cost higher then I would normally pay for a Leader Class, the fact that they get so close to perfection and then not follow through with a simple little thing like a face plate,frustrates me as a collector and pisses me off.. well that is my preference.. and others as well.. to belittle that want or consumer need simply because you think that this figure is worth the cost for the paint scheme.. seems flawed and self righteous..

if I am going to pay close to 100.00 to import a frigging toy that is Leader Class and is at the price point of a Masterpiece figure.. well it damn sure better include a missing mouthpiece..to be perfect.. but as of right now, there are no reports that it will contain a mouth piece addition to the figure.. so as of right now, in my opinion, it is not as great as it could be.. and that is MY OPINION.. and should not be attacked for my Opinion and accused as being self righteous, and told to "Get over Myself."

I would expect better manners from a fellow fan, and to respect others opinions, how ever different from yours they are.. Who are you to presume to tell anyone to get over themselves??

Cos they would be making more of it then Takara who have a smaller production run.

I seriously love this toy, I've been waiting 2 effing years to get a Movie Prime with a gad damned mouth, as I kinda like his mugg. :D
