    That's quite a find! But I can't help thinking it's fake for these reasons:

    1. The art is not new, just photoshopped from Mirage's art.

    2. The figure inside looks diecast. Too shinyon the hood and roof, like it was painted.

    3. The bottom of the box looks fishy to me.

    But then, I see stuff that looks legit.


    If it is real, good find my friend!

    If it were an exclusive, that would explain the art.

    There's never been a version of this mold released with die-cast. Kiss Play Rodimus is plastic.

    Is it just me, or is there something a little off about the black outline around the barcode?

    I doubt they'd restart production on Alts for the sake of one toy when they're going to be flat out trying to supply toys for an almost simultaneous worldwide release.


    I'd be somewhat surprised to see the Ford GT mold used for an exclusive, it's a more popular mold than the Ram, and Roddy is probably more popular, and more recognized than Nemesis Prime.


    Also if this is real why would it pop up during the run up to the movie?

    It wouldn't be surprising if the next few Alts (if there will be any more at all) are just reuses of past molds, but i would've thought we wouldn't see any more new Alts at retail for a good 7 - 8 months... which would mean, if this is real, they've gotten quite a head start.

    I said it looks diecast. I actualy edited my post because I only meant the hood. (where the strips on KP Rodimus were.)

    I'm probably about to sound like a total retail noob...

    ...but can't somebody plug the UPC into their store's computer and see what comes up? Or does it not work that way at all?

    So Nemesis Prime is a fake because his packaging was photoshopped from Optimus Prime's.

    I was just about to point that out too as it says on the front page that every other Alt has had new art. Nemmy Prime was a PS of Ops.

    And if you read my later post, you'd know I mentioned that if it were an exclusive, than that would explain that.

    People don't listen.

    But it can't be, because there's no die cast there.
