    Wouldn't the scale be even more off for this figure with the PotP Nemesis' accessories. The arm cannons, for instance, look comically large when used with this figure, since they were originally sized for a Leader class figure and this one is a Voyager.

    So I suppose this release probably doesn't really appeal to you then.

    Really digging this figure but the lack of secure storage for essentially all the accessories, minus the prime blaster, in alt mode is a real shame. Also feel like the big guns were a waste of an accessory, I can't find a single figure in my collection that they actut look good with.

    Nope, not really, so passing on it. Only Netflix releases that interest me this go around are Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Bumblebee and Elita-1

    got my nemesis, accessories def seem a weird choice, i honestly wish he had the siege axe (might have to just buy one). also noticed that the fit doesnt quite seem as good, a couple of parts look slightly warped (ie front of trailer halves)

    Damnit! Just found out about this, and it seems like preorders are all closed at this point. Is this Spoiler Pack going to hit brick-n-mortar stores, or was it an online exclusive?

    I never seen it hit stores like the other netfilx exclusives. It was available at multiple online retailers though.

    Smyths had him here in Ireland. Worth a pick up. Actually he's much better then that.

    Superb figure. Target I think carried him in states and smyths in UK. Some online retailers had him too.

    A gem

    Might have been Walmart

    It was only online; Walmart seems to have decided they're not interested in stocking the Spoiler Packs at retail. Unfortunately, you're pretty late to the party - this set has pretty much come and gone at this point (it released back in November).

    There were delays here too. It finally made retail here in January after being delayed end of October and then mid December. Was hoping he would get here for Christmas but he arrived early January at retail here in smyths.

    After the Netflix UM debacle, no one reported seeing the 2nd spoiler pack at a b&m Walmart. I've only seen in-person at local comic book stores, who have wholesale accounts through EE.

    When I saw the pictures of Nemesis with his arm guns, I thought the same.

    In hand I rather like them though. They are excessive, but I kind of see it fitting a genocidal war-bot somehow. I don't see them as things he'd carry all the time, necessarily, more something he'd break out when outnumbered, but I like them.

    It's obvious from the scale and two post to one port fittings that they weren't really meant for him, though. A bit smaller scale would have been nice. (I think Jetfire's arm guns would look better, although I haven't tried them yet.)

    I also think they missed a trick with no ports on the trailer. I don't mean adding them especially for Nemesis since they're only interested in recolours with most of these selects and spoiler packs, recycling mold. (Interestingly, I think this pack might be the first in WFC what they recycled from three different lines.) But for lines which pride themselves with promoting playability with lots of ports and bloosh pegs, you'd have thought they'd include more on the ER trailer mold. Would have come into it's own with Nemesis. The big guns would look better on the side of the trailer than jammed on top of his cab. But then again the two post system of the guns might make placement difficult even then.

    Small issues aside, I love the Nemesis spoiler pack.

    I purchased mine at Walmart in Canada. Seems weird we received it in store but the US didn't.
