    According to an anonymous source aptly named Anonymous Prime, Alternators Nemesis Prime is going to be an exclusive at the San Diego Comic-Con in July...

    No word from Hasbro about it being an exclusive at SDCC, but they will have an exhibit there... We are aware of the initial rumor of it being VERY limited in production so this connection to SDCC certainly makes sense...

    Keep your eyes peeled for any further news on this!!!

    If it is, and it's got a new number assignment I give up an Alts completely.

    Well I have this guy still on pre-order from Action HQ so we'll see if they follow through on my order or not.

    If not I'll probably pass on this one as if this is ends up true he's going to go for some ridicules price.

    Oh well I have Alt Prime and he's not that great anyway so I'm not really too concerned.

    If anything, it could be a Hasbrotoyshop.com exclusive. Last year they had a booth there selling certain Hasbro products and exclusives. Perhaps they may be selling it there first before it hits the online shop?

    Well if it's not part of a mainline then no it's no different but if it's still included in the Alternators line with it's own numbering then yes it's quite different and even still it's going to piss a lot of fans off.

    Well, maybe if it's a con exclusive, they won't have any problem putting out a black repaint as a different character. Maybe Trailbreaker? Huh? Maybe? Huh?

    If not, I'll be mondo ticked, as I'd have to repaint an Optimus instead of the small mods a Nemesis Prime would need.

    Eh. He'll be a neat-looking figure no matter where he shows up. However, deciding not to collect the Decepticons in this line has continued to be good for me. :D  I'll stick to looking at pictures on here.

    I'm going to call shenanagins on this. I do think that Hasbro WILL have a SDCC exclusive, but if you look at their past exclusives they are all SMALL. Basic SW figures, LOC figures...With Alternators also come extra licensing fees. I doub't Hasbro would squander that extra expense on a SDCC exclusive. I say a SDCC exclusive no bigger than a deluxe :) 

    Of course I could be completely wrong and they could sell both Nemesis Prime & the Seacons at SDCC...either way I'll be there, so I guess it's OK :sly:
