    I'm pretty sure Hasbro no longer owns (or can use) the name Trailbreaker, so do you think Hasbro made Black alt Prime intending him to be kitbash fodder, you know as in "It will be real easy for people to make this thing into Trailbreaker."

    Pretty much hit the nail right on the head. But I for one think the Nemesis Prime Alternator still looks kick ass, even if he has little paint apps in that pic. :thumb

    Yep. Heck, I think if Walmart would take it the toy would actually be called "Trailbreaker parts".

    If that was Hasbro's intention then why not paint him in full Trailbreaker colors?

    I think it's a clever ploy on Optimus Prime's part. He paints himself black and thousands of fans rush out to decapitate Swindle, thereby decreasing the already small Alternator Decepticon forces by one.

    Optimus Prime: diabolical bastard.

    Exactly. The only goal on the part of Hasbro is to produce a saleable toy.

    ..assuming the head from the Ram mold fits on the balljoint for Swindle.

    You can make anything fit with a saw and a big enough hammer. Some glue might come in handy to :D

    I also concur with that thought. The real question is, why isn't it named Scourge? It has Scourge's colors, not Nemesis' colors.

    I think people are reading way to much into Hasbro's toy planning. :p

    Wether it is Hasbro's intention or not (most likely not) I'm sure it will very much be kitbash fodder. I for one, intend to make him into MotorMaster... assuming I can find one, that is. I'm sure alot of other people will make him into Trailbreaker and others will leave him as Nemesis Prime.

    I wonder if Hasbro should do what Takara does with material force microman and release unpainted bodies for people to kitbash.
