    I severely doubt it... considering it's just the stock photos for Prime blacked out and the mold is being used in a very similar manner for Botcon.

    That... would be an odd play for Hasbro to grant two such similar exclusives in the same year. I have to think that if true, the Botcon people can't be happy about it.

    Agreed. My first reaction is to call BS, but I suppose anything's possible.

    If true, it's just a really bad idea...

    Kind of upsetting, I was hoping the Alternator exclusives would continue for SDCC... we could get Alt Frenzy or Red Alert still, even Ironhide from the Scion mold. Or at least a better Titanium if they just had to do black again, give us that Skywarp they promised or Cheetor as a Beast Machines Ravage might look great.

    I was kinda hoping for an Alt. Frenzy myself, though I don't see this as too out of line, especially when the exclusives often piggy-back on someone else's production run of the mold (Takara Classics Convoy - Botcon Evil Op - SDCC Nemesis Prime)

    I'll keep an eye out. Kinda hope that's not the ONLY TF exclusive at SDCC though.

    Hmm. Until I see a proper colour photo (as opposed to a black and white version of a Hasbro stock photo) I'll remain skeptical.

    I will lol when Botcon Set collectors get their noses bent out of joint.

    But I highly doubt this will be at all similar outside of the mold and the colour black. And this will also be affordable. And more plentiful no doubt.

    As a big fan of the Nemesis Prime concept in general, I'd have to say I couldn't get that lucky

    Eh. Whether or not it's true, I can't say I care one way or the other.

    Hear Hear. Back when we got that little grain of info that they would possibly continue Alts as convention exclusives, I had/have high hopes for what they release at SDCC this year. Thankfully it's still not out of the realm of possibility since I doubt they'll only release one exclusive figure.

    As for this Prime rumor, I can't say I'm surprised. For whatever reason people seem to like this "nemesis" bullshit and want to have it pollute every line, so it was probably an easy no-brainer decision for Hasbro. But in its defense, even at the height of its lameness, it still makes more sense than that gothic Joker repaint they're releasing @ BotCon this year.

    Only one? Last year we had Alt. Rodimus AND Tit Menasor... So we could still get an Alt...

    I have my doubts that this is real, but if it is I will get it.
