    Hi all.

    I'm really confused about whether to buy the nemesis prime that's coming out on Thursday at hasbrotoyshop.com. I mean, he's limited and I really love the Scourge paint scheme, but between the quality control problems with Optimus and the higher price, I don't know.

    Anybody else in this boat?

    Think of it this way, If you skip it now, and decide you want it in the future, you will be paying about 5-8 times the Price on Ebay. I say, (as someone who is ticked about Hasbros lack of Nem Primes for the rest of the world), go for it, better you have one than a scalper gets another.

    I suggest you skip it. Without a doubt. I've heard awful things.

    I have had mine for a week and a half and he is awesome. MUCH better then Prime. The black colors match up so much better. Get him, you will love him. He is no only going to be rare because of his limited availability,however also because he is a Decepticon, and he is only the 6th! I will be attempting to get 1 more on thursday to keep MISB.

    I'm gonna try to buy 1. When I get it I'll determine if I'll keep it or sell it.

    Yeah, I'm going to buy 1, and only 1. I seem to have fallen prey to the Pokemon Syndrome when it comes to ALT's...gotta catch 'em all! I just hope the availability is ther on Thursday morning, I am on the west coast, so it's 6 am wake up call for me!

    On a related note, does anyone know where they are going to list it on the site? I would assume under Transformers exclusives where Astrotrain is, but I don't want to do that to u & me.

    I have a search for 'transformers' bookmarked. Priced highest first. It should be between alts and ultras. I'm hoping to be up at 8:30 so I have time to get that page up and running so I can just refresh until 9.

    Get him if you can, he's awesome! And there is no issues on mismatched color like Alt Prime. A little loose, but not too bad.

    For me the answer is a big YES. Alt Decepticons are so few in numbers and I need Nemesis Prime to be part of my army and take the leadership role away from Shockwave. Its color scheme is awesome and overall just look way better than OP. But if you don't want it it just mean more Nemesis for rest of us. :)

    Seeing as how I can't freaking FIND a red Prime, I'll take Black.

    I'd say go for it. This mold does look really good in black and mine is actually tighter than my alt. Prime.

    Not try to threadjack, but are we really expecting it to sell out that fast? I mean this is a TF, not Slayer tickets or something. Plus a lot of people have already gotten them from ebay. And are we also really expecting the 9am thing to be so exact? If I'm remembering right the store is generally pretty lazy about adding and updating.
