    Issue #39 showed up in my mailbox today with the deluxe TF: Prime Optimus on the cover, promising a big SDCC reveal inside. And wow! Pictures of the Matrix Prime exclusive. It's TF: Prime Optimus in a metallic paint scheme in a really neat matrix-shaped package that you can WEAR around your neck! The Matrix bit itself comes inside a box designed to look like Optimus' chest. Also, SDCC Exclusive ULTIMATE OPTIMUS PRIME! Comes packaged in tractor trailer mode in a shiny red sleeve with blue flames like the movie deco, and includes a decal sheet that you can use to customize the trailer. Think of ultimate Optimus in vehicle mode packaged in a box similar to the SDCC exclusive Alternators inside of a movie themed sleeve and you'll get the idea.

    There's a note from Brian that mentions Botcon 2011 has just happened (whoops!), an interview with the man himself, Frank Welker, Bios for Prowl and Side Burn, a mini-mayhem, and the next installment of the comic.

    EDIT: Oh man, just finished reading the Welker interview, in which he specifically mentions he'd like to make a Botcon appearance with Peter Cullen one day since Peter makes them sound like so much fun. Apparently in the past it's mostly been a timing issue keeping him away! Maybe this year IS the year!!

    DOUBLE EDIT: There's an interview with DJW and Marty Isenberg about this year's convention set inside the back cover that specifically mentions "Cheetor and Sideswipe's police action/drama routine" and alludes to the Stunticons as "clone-gone-wrong" versions of characters!

    Does Ultimate Prime just have the shiny new box and stickers, or are there more differences?

    Looks like the same mold, with a premium paint job, special packaging, and the decal sheet.

    wow, that's kinda cool. So I am not too familiar with SDCC, how does one go to obtain their exclusive, normally?

    edit:: I mean aside from going to a convention.

    There a lot of hints around suggesting this year might be the year for Welker to show up...hmmm.

    This. A Deluxe figure with a box like that sounds like it shouldn't be on the 50 dollar end, but it wouldn't be unusual.

    No mention on price for the exclusives, just a brief interview about them, and pictures.

    The Matrix package Prime sounds like an exclusive that I might actually want.

    wait.....clone versions of Sideswipe and Cheetor? Or clones as in auto-roopers?

    On a side note, I'm surprised how little we actually know about these exclusives given that Botcon is next week.
