    Man, I thought Alternators Hot Rod was as good or better a toy to have as the Botcon Classics seekers, but this year SDCC really do have the better exclusive by a mile if this is true.

    If only Botcon had thought to do a blue Alternators Frenzy for their exclusive, rather than the crap they've got, I'd have gone for their exclusives too.

    Mind you I guess they sold out of all their loose sets already. (man I hope BBTS can make their money back on all of those....)

    if it's real then I'll try to get it, because I still want to be a Classics completist. But I've been taking RiD Scourge out of his continuity to be Classics Nemesis, it's gonna suck to demote him for an official one

    The only problem is, my only other SDCC exclusive (Pimp Daddy Destro) I have unopened and framed. I doubt I could keep THIS guy unoppened.

    I won't be one of them! I like the possibility of that Classics Nemesis Prime. Fiction wise, I wonder how Evil Prime and Nemesis Prime would get along? :lol

    That would be nice. Still hopping for a Masterpiece Thundercracker and a Alt. Frenzy.

    Well, I've got the Prime and Magnus versions of this mold, so I'll probably get Nemesis, too. I'm still hoping that Titanium WW Grimlock or WW Prowl will be SDCC exclusives. But, probably not.

    What faint pulse? Alt Rodimus was at last years SDCC and we've been going 7 months without one. I doubt there's any hope for them at this point. But I also hope I'm wrong.

    Isn't it a little early for them to start showing exclusives for SDCC now? Anyway looks fake but if it's true I'll bite and buy it. Still a great mold and a decent paint scheme.

    Makes senses that the more popular Nemesis scheme is used for SDCC which caters to a larger population than Botcon does.

    Nice find KA!

    If true, they'll prolly name him Menasor. I'm really hoping they give us another ALT too. Frenzy, Steeljaw, I'll even take another Vette retool!

    Nemesis Prime is boring. Give me the TakTomy colored Prime for $25.

    There's no gaurentee that we wont get an Alternators exclusive. Last year there were more than on exclusive TF. .

    FP has said in the past they can't produce Exclusives based on Alts. Similar to the movie line which seems to be off-limits for Botcon, due to licensing costs.

    That's what I thought as well. Even before Toy Fair, and we get a SDCC Exclusive rumor? Too early IMO.

    Could be true though.
