    Interesting. Not exactly sure who it's supposed to be. I honestly wasn't expecting this mold to have an alternate head-sculpt. As-is it's already got a decent amount of repaint potential.

    That's interesting. It could be Motormaster but it doesn't look right without the "hood" that usually surrounds his head. Maybe a take on Sentinel Prime or something?

    Looks so familiar.

    So nemesis prime could be an exclusive again. Better not be a botcon exclusive.

    In the second picture, the dots in bottom inner corners of the eyes make it look like he's staring at his feet whilst frowning.









    *sorry*

    It looks just a bit like Clench

    But only just.

    Because that seems to be the trend in the US and Japan. It could still get a mass retail release though.

    About the head, I'll have to see the the prototype before I judge it.

    I don't understand the jump from O. Prime to Motormaster. To my knowledge, there is no precedent for why they'd ever do this, beyond the fact that they're both trucks.

    The first thought that popped into my head was Zeta Prime.

    Motormaster? Not bad, it fits with CHUG's tradition of making most of the combiner bots (Dragstrip, Silverbolt, Onslaught, etc.) as separate toys rather than components to one big combiner.

    I REALLY hope that isn't the case. I will dread just thinking about trying to obtain it. Damn exclusives.

    If anything, I'd rather see Toxitron become a Club Exclusive figure, and RID Scourge be a mass market release figure or as part of some TARGET exclusive 2-pack deluxe-class repaint set. Making RID Scourge become easy to obtain would give me more reason to stick with the club and get that Side Burn figure.

    If I were to guess, I would say maybe Pyro? Not a great match, but a little like how he appears in Last Stand of the Wreckers.

    I think they're just messin' with us now.


    But really, I'm seriously hoping that it's NOT Motormaster. Even though he's in the top 5 on my Generations wish-list, I'd don't think I could settle for anything other than an entirely new mold.

    Looks kinda like movie Ironhide.

    If this is Motormaster, I will be very unhappy. Just looks nothing like him.

    Am i crazy to think that it just kind of looks like Movie Prime's head? Maybe they were planning for a re-release during DOTM as a deluxe.
