    It’s inevitable. It’s the best “classic Prime” we’ve gotten at that price point (so demand should stay high), and the margins for HasTak get better with every version. It’s basically printing money. I think Nemesis, SG will definitely happen at minimum, and I wonder if we’ll get another Ghostbusters Prime in a couple of years as well.

    I agree. I think Nemesis from this mold is 99.9% probable, although it might come from Japan as an exclusive.

    I'm in for Pepsi (original trailer or the fancy remolded bottle trailer like Pepsi Convoy - Transformers Wiki )

    I’d absolutely love a new Pepsi Prime toy, especially if his trailer gets remolded like the old one to hold soda bottles.

    hopefully we get a premium version at some point. (all the missing paint apps, no grey on half the legs, silver paint or chrome where it's appropriate, Roller???)

    Ghostbusters has an edge in that they don't have to paint the hands. As we're all likely aware, unusual gangmolding choices were made with this figure.

    I wouldn't mind if they made Nemesis look like the Devastation version with the teal hands. Which would mean a teal trailer but I'd almost rather NOT have a bunch of near identical gray trailers. I'd also like them to go back to the dirty, yellowed gray from Armada Nemesis.

    I want to see repaints but without repeated colors, including the silver. I only like repeated colors when it's actually possible to parts swap without removing pins.

    (Hoping ER Megatron is in Siege Megatron colors, particularly if he can't be a reflective silver. That's a head swap candidate for me.)

    Doesn't it already have blue eyes?

    Is anyone else hoping that the box will be shaped like a coffin?

    I could definitely see a cardboard dio piece of his deathbed and bio monitor (maybe even plastic) if this is an SDCC planned exclusive. Keep in mind, if it's an SDCC exclusive, it's probably NOT a standard leader but likely more like an $80 figure. If you're going to charge that and have it be monochrome with no chrome or retooling, a bed, a biomonitor, and non-standard packaging all fall in the realm of "things that make this worth more than $50".

    Itching to see the packaging as I think it could give us Easter eggs for future figures.

    This could serve really well as a Generations version of Evasion Optimus

    Would go nice with a Lockdown!
