    That looks far too similar to the original Prime toy-- I really doubt this is the missing LoC Wave 4 toy.

    No, the Megalo exclusive was a deeper red, and the legs were a lighter blue. This seems to be a lighter red and a really dark blue which is almost black.
    Hmmm, red and black? Now, that'd be nice on a Prime. But not enough to warrent buying the big one again.

    It looks like it might be an exclusive or something to me, given its metallic finish.

    Please let this be the New Prime. If it is, it'll be the first prime repaint I ever owned.

    Looks like it's half Optimus, half Nemesis Prime. I'd accept it as a LoC, but for the big normal figure it just doesn't seem different enough. A robot mode pic of this LoC would be nice.

    Black and red, eh? Not bad, if they put some effort into it. I personally would make it mostly black with red trim. Maybe a bit of grey or blue to ease the monotony.

    I don't really see THAT much of a difference in the colours, except that its a little more shiny. I'll wait until I see more of the toy (smaller or bigger) before I pass judgement.

    Looks like it could be some kind of Convention exclusive, since it appears to be in a baggie.
