If Striker Optimus had the Buster chrome I'd probably have sex with it.

Assaulter might just be the worst thing I've ever seen, though. It's like someone put Legios, Armada and Macross in a blender, drank the results and then shat it out. Some spastic will buy it because they "need a Classics Broadside 2 go with my 2-pack Roadbuster LOL", though.

The new Striker Prime HAS the Buster chrome.

Never shopped at TFSource in the past, but now with the whole source points...I don't think I'll ever. I can't get discounts on items based on the things I buy...because I'm not in the US? What kind of system discrimination is that?

I saw the words "Leader Class DOTM Megatron", got excited, then realised it basically . . . wasn't.

Does the new Striker Prime have chrome on the robot? It looked to me like it was just on the accessories, which was a bit of a turn off... Would be very excited if I was wrong!

****, just seen the ****ing red head on Red Alert. Hopefully Hasbro won't be that stupid. I know I shouldn't be surprised what with Tackyara's track record on randomly applying Sunbow colours to toys they don't suit but I still can't believe they think it looks good.

If Striker does have the chrome (and I'm waiting for Real People pictures after the DOTM Sideswipe thing) I'm getting one even if I have to wait for one of you to buy it, come around your house, kill you and take it.

I could see why it'd be annoying for the original Red to to be given the red head, but considering the Masterpiece is (presumably) meant to be the ultimate representation of G1 Red going for the cartoon colour scheme when that's go to be the best known (by default in Japan of course) over how he looked in the virtual cameos in the UK comic makes sense to me.

I get that - but my main argument (like Encore Trailbreaker's blue visor) is that it looks absolutely shite (as it did in the cartoon too). As I say, what with Generations or whatever it was Hasbro give us hope.

Considering it's Masterpiece it'd be nice if they just plain included an alternate like Soul of Chogokin does. But seeing as it's Takara they're more likely to just bring out two versions to pad out the numbering of the MP series.

I like the red head. Makes for a nice bit of variety from the standard black/grey/blue.

Sorry, can't hear you over the sound of how wrong you are.

Can you imagine how different this board would be if people really thought like that?

I did once get asked via PM to stop slagging off IDW because the messenger was pitching to them at the time.

The new striker version does have some chrome parts, but it's missing all the finer details like the pinstripes around the flames.
