This round of gallery entries brings two more versions of the popular Transformers ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime mold and a redeco of the ROTF Leader Class Jetfire mold.

First we have the DOTM reissue of Takara's ROTF Jetpower Buster Optimus Prime and Jetfire two-pack. This version of Buster Optimus Prime features alternate pinstripping and a closed faceplate. Jetfire has also underwent a slight makeover with more black. Second we have the Family Mart exclusive Translucent Optimus Prime. Follow the links and images below for full galleries.

Arrrgh. These galleries with images of Jetwing and Striker Prime just rub salt in the wound left by the fact that Hasbro decided that we Americans don't need them and that they have soared beyond rational affordability on the secondary market. :-x

The black-and-rust deco is a great look on Jetfire, but his eyes are just far too dead.

These photos represent quite a change in my gallery process. Over the course of the past month, I've gotten a new camera, experimented with different types of backdrops, changed backdrops, and even gotten a professional lightkit complete with softboxes (and finally got rid of the clamp-on lamps I was using for the past 8 years).

Jetfire's robot mode was the first set of pics with the new setup on the white backdrop. Buster Optimus Prime's robot mode was the first set of pics with the new setup on the black backdrop. In some of the vehicle mode pics, if you look close you'll see that I was using black poster board before I ended up with my black backdrop.

This new setup allows me to pretty much just take pics and do very little touch-up work in Photoshop, which means I can do galleries faster. This setup has solved a lot of problems that I've dealt with for the past 8 years. I can't wait to see how quickly I can knock out galleries now.

Just need some new Transformers Prime toys to test all of this out on from start to finish! Bring it!

That transparent Prime is a great looking collector piece. Sort of reminds me of the Holotech Zoids they had out a while ago.

I wonder if they figured out a way to prevent all that translucent plastic from cracking around the pin joints as well as the ball joints in the ankles. That would be an unimaginable tragedy to have those joints split on a nigh irreplaceable piece like that!

I heard this toy has those very same problems, but I experienced zero with mine. I didn't really like it until I was doing the galleries. It's a pretty cool piece. I've never really been big into the transparent Transformers (even though I own quite a few), but now that I have this black backdrop maybe I'll like taking photos of them more.

Great pics! I have the ROTF Buster Prime/Jetfire two-pack, is there any difference in paint apps between that and this reissue?

From what I understand, there are none. Would love for someone to confirm that has the ROTF set.

Why must Takara's stuff *always* be so much better than Hasbro's?
