    is there any difference between the nemesis primes released at SDCC and the ones released overseas?

    Perhaps, but then it's back to cheap repaint shelfwarmer territory.

    I suspect we'd have some substantially pissed off fans if Hasbro decided to do a wide release of Nemmy Prime after this - the ones who went to great lengths and hardships to get one in the first place to be more specific.

    So any clues why Nemesis Prime is clogging stocks overseas but not the the States? Could it be that sales of repainted Alt.s have been poor in the States?

    Because Hasbro decided to make him an exclusive stateside in order to promote their online toy store, whereas they couldn't make him an exclusive in Asia and thus had to make him a mass release there?

    Hmmm, you got a point there. I assume that Nemesis Prime is also readily available in Europe then?

    HAHAHAHAHA

    Do you have any idea what Alternators distribution in Europe is like?

    A random country (most likely Italy) would get one new Alternator which had been out in the USA for several months every once in a while, and then it'd be case of lucky draw which other countries would get that Alternator as well, and when.
    And the next five or so toys that come out in the USA will more than likely never see a European release.

    Or maybe one of them comes out a year after his initial US release.

    It's totally random.

    And no, we don't have Nemesis Prime anywhere near here yet.

    And it seems that her in South America we depend on Hasbro mexico, though the package says "Made in China".

    In Chile, we saw /roughly) the first wave of alts, but none of the others. Errr....no, no Nemesis :p

    BUT we may yet get thousands of it next year. A friend of mine on the nordic boards tells me ( I have seen a picture) that there are tons of Decepticharges in bubble packaging at his local TRU. I wonder if they're worth a premium? I have certainly never seen or heard of it anywhere. The store had swindle and windcharger too. But THAT'S iT! No other Alternator, ever.

    Whoa, thanks for clearing that up! I thought Alternators distribution would be abit better in Europe as I remembered the Marvel TF comics were quite popular in UK. But then again that was years ago!
