TFMV22PK003

RobotKingdom has posted new images of the recently released Buster Optimus Prime & Jetfire set by TakaraTomy from Revenge of The Fallen. These new images give us the answer we’ve been waiting for; confirmation that Buster Optimus Prime retains his buster rifle! Initially there was speculation that the aforementioned rifle would not be included.

This version of Optimus Prime differs from the previous release by having the masked head sculpt. In addition, the pin striping has changed from white to blue. Click on the title bar to see for yourself!

    This was rumoured back in march last year and its set for release in January 2010 - I have a small pic of it in pack which I'll try and load but from the looks of it the set is a Takara Tomy release and features Jetfire with the Buster Prime Mold minus the gun accessory ( in other words he is all chromed up)

    No price point yet but may have some more info later

    Cheers

    More info

    Anyways got more product updates about this

    Release - 1/1/2010

    Jetfire - New Deco Yippee

    Prime - Buster version - no faceplate confirmed wholesaler appears to think its a straight repack.

    We've also got it up for pre-order

    Price point for you USA guys working on what we're being charged and UK import taxes, VAT etc is around $175.


    Mod Edit: Pictures added. One regular size, one blown up.

    So just standard Jetfire with Buster Prime?

    Because a black chrome Jetfire might make me hyperventilate a bit.

    I'll buy this.

    I expect it has to have the gun accessory as the Prime toy would be lacking the fuel canisters without it...

    Just looks like regular Taktom Jetfire but cant really tell as the pic is only about 3cm wide and I cant get the bloody thing to load, I can email it to someone else in an excel sheet if needs be so they can have a go ?

    Well, it could just be Buster Prime with the regular leader Prime non-transforming fuel tanks.

    PM sent. I should be able to extract from the Excel file.

    The package definately says Buster Optimus Prime, but it's also a TakaraTomy release

    Hopefully just a placeholder for a Hasbro release.

    Whoah, cool. Sucks that Optimus apparently doesn't have his gun, though.
