    Neat concept. Not sure if I want it though.

    This sorta confirms to me too that they probably aren't being allowed to touch a Scourge/Nemesis Prime deco for the mold, which is good for the fans Hasbro probably intends to somehow do it themselves.

    Divided between 'that's pretty cool' and 'that's really rather uninspired'...

    As well as a bit of "add some more green, and it's Cybertron Dirt Boss!"

    Ehhhh. Hoping it is an add-on figure so that way I can save some money.

    Though if he is the free figure he can't be worse than Fisitron from last year since at least he doesn't have a brown/teal potato alt mode. Still will toss in a heartbeat if it is the free fig though.

    This is pretty much the only thing that would make that cool.

    Well, at least it isn't Scourge. The Fan rage probably be worse than it was when it was revealed G2 Sideswipe was the custom figure during the G2 Botcon.

    Although the only plausible reason I can think of doing this, since the original SG Prime can't really be beat since he's the Voyager Classics Prime, is to retcon the body in order for Prime and Magnus to share the same body, much like the originals.

    Probably the freebie.

    Funny how we STILL don't have the two obvious repaints that would be ideal for that mold: Scourge and Toxitron.

    Looks horrible in alt mode compared to the first one they did.

    Not that original, but the colors do look nice on the mold. And cool how they kept the rub sign.

    They really are using SG as the fodder now... This shark has been jumped, then beaten like a dead horse. :horse:  :wish there was a shark being jumped smiley:

    I believe this will be the majority opinion.

    As much as I like the G2 Prime mold, I am torn. I want it because I like collecting the Botcon figs... but since last year my heart just hasn't been into it.

    To be honest, that is the first name that came to mind upon seeing this. It really could be Dirt Boss for all we know.
