    TFW2005 has learned through various sources that there will be a limited release of a black repaint to Alternators Optimus Prime, confirmed to be Nemesis Prime, as previously reported from our sponsor Action-HQ. This release is a Hasbro exclusive, giving more confirmation that Takara has cancelled the release of the "Ginrai" and "Black Convoy" Binaltech verisons. Whether Nemesis Prime will be released a la Swerve, one case assortment and that's it, or mixed in as a variant a la Marvel Legends, is unknown. Stay tuned for more details.

    this is exciting new, but scary at the same time. I live in a smaller town, and more often than not, I don't get to see certain releases.... I had to buy swerve off ebay, and if this is limited enough, I feel that internet buyin will be horribly jacked up in pricing!! I hope I'm wrong, maybe he'll be released, just only in one wave or something, or else hasbro toy shop will have it *crosses fingers*

    I agree. This is VERY exciting but also scary. I know I soooooooooooooo hate exclusives because they are hard to get sometimes but damnit-- this is gonna be ONE HELL OF A TREASURE HUNT!

    For all of you guys-- one bit of advice. Put in your pre-orders NOW. You know this figure is gonna fetch mega bucks on ebay.

    Kudos to Hasbro. This is a good way to put in some hype and excitement in the line.

    (Just make sure you produce enough exclusives for everyone. :)  )

    Question is will he have Decepticaon symbols or Autobot? I'm thinking the former but I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping it's a black Prime with Auobot symbols - all ready and waiting for a Swindle head-swap et voila... Trailbreaker.

    Limited sounds scarey indeed. I hope we in Aussieland will have a chance to find one. We have to rely on casefresh now :(

    If they felt really generous, they'd not label the number plate with Prime :)

    I would imagine that he'd have decepticon symbols on him, cause he's the nemesis, but what do I know? :p

    I pre-ordered as well. The Alternators line is the only one I intend on keeping complete and I don't want to risk it. Now my wallet's in tears... :cry

    That's assuming he'll even show up on the pre-order forms. :(  I don't remember Swerve ever showing up on the club store.

    Why? The Takara version is obviously just delayed, they're eventually going to release it as a giftset with Swerve, Wildrider, Black Widow, Ginrai, Moledive, Blender and Armbullet. :D

    Feh. Don't like this limited business at all. That shit infects enough lines already. Hope it's just a "briefpack" like Swerve and not some uber-limited online thing. With Alts shipping to WM regularly again, I'm pretty confident I could find it even easier than Swerve if he was a one asst. deal.

    Well the fact that it looks like its going to be limited kinda sucks, but I guess its better to know that now than after its come and gone.
