    “Vorpal Saber” is an English-original name retroactively coined by the Club magazine. In the original Japanese Micron Densetsu in 2003, the sword wielded by Scourge / Nemesis Prime was named “Dark Saber” for the toy release.

    I find the theory that avoidance of “Vorpal” is for copyright reasons to be plausible.

    Nope, that is still apparently beyond their skill to mass produce correctly cut Decepticon symbols.

    They use it in DnD still, so it isn't that.

    I'm wondering if this actually includes Prime's blaster. Only one toy image shows it, and the official description, box image, Nemesis Pax image, and truck mode image don't.
    "Includes Leader Class Nemesis Prime figure with Evolution armor, Decepticon Giza figure, Dark Matrix of Leadership accessory, Dark Saber accessory, 2 arm cannon accessories, collector card, and instructions."

    The box does: look above the R & I of the Primes in "Power of the Primes". The blade of the Nemesis sabre is visible to the left.

    They really could stand to make the Optimus rifle silver or grey though, just to make Nemesis more distinct and homage things like the early versions of the first MP Optimus that had the rifle in silver/grey.

    In very glad this seems to be an Amazon exclusive rather than a convention exclusive .
    Hopefully it goes live for pre-order soon.

    My bet would be the wave 3 prime masters.

    Now the $1,000,000 question is: when is this going to go live? Tomorrow is the 1st of May, so i'm hoping to hear SOMETHING about exclusives soon...

    I just realised that the Star Wars crossovers Vader figure should have came out on May 4th.
