    i have access to an alt prime and itd be chump change to pick it up...

    but should i?

    i'm iffy with the design and only interested in him cuz he's hot right now. and with my one-a-mold rule, i'd prefer a different character actually. will exclusive alt scourge prevent a alt prime repaint? do i really want to wait that long for a repaint since they havent even released prowl's repaint?

    help me obi-wan, you're my only hope.

    I think the limiter is how many colors the real vehicle comes in. I remember hearing 3, so whatever the third color is would be the only other option. Unless they go Skids/Smokey and go ape with decals.

    Camshaft!!!

    oh wait...


    They could actually try Motormaster. If you think about it, his trailer was all grey, it's not a huge stretch.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did a white version, and turned it into Ultra Magnus.

    no, oro has a point. they have consistently released alts in available model color only. so its gotta be that mineral silver gray.

    c'mon, hasbro.

    It sucks, but i think Trailbreaker's ship has sailed. Anybody want to sell me a Nemesis Prime and Rollbar for cheap?

    We thought the same with Sunstreaker but we finally got him. Maybe we'll get an SUV mold for Trailbraker. I keep holding out for a Range Rover for him.

    Dodge seems to have the attitude of 'do whatever you want, just make us look good', so maybe they'd let Hasbro paint it a non-factory color...though I'm probably very wrong.

    Man, I don't care if they recolor him . I'll be making a new one anyway because I chiped the paint on the door. Why it's now scratched in silver is beyond me.

    So this Prime will eventually be turned into a custom called Walker and be a silver Dodge Ram just like Chuck Norris drove

    I dont really see sunstreaker and trailbreaker in the same boat. Dead-end was always sunstreaker in the wrong colours. Trailbreaker would be a new character.

    Pretty much. Nevermore pointed out that the new pictures show him having a different number somewhere that's way off from what it would be for mass retail. And something about no assortment code. It's in the new pics thread in news if you want the details.
