The Transformers Collectors' Club tweeted an image of a new exclusive for 2015. In the wake of the TFCC membership incentive figure Lio Convoy, we get a look at Nova Prime using the same Generations Orion Pax mold and the new headsculpt from Lio Convoy. This will be a club store exclusive.

Interesting... its nice to see more imagination out of an OP mold other than the generic Black or Magnus repaints.

And if we didn't have Hyper Novae, I could see a lot of kitbashers ripping the wings off of perfectly good Tigerhawks and Razorclaws to slap on this little guy and make him look more complete. Thank you Make Toys, for saving the Vok's emissaries.

I'll probably get this guy before saving up for the 3rd party one anyway. If all else fails, he can represent the Prime Nova of a some other universe just fine.

whoa!!! too bad the mold is smaller than classics bumblebee.
Also too bad the actual product will look nothing like the awesome looking art! I'm looking at you Botcon Devcon!

I'm totally with this... at least until they announce Nemesis Prime as the second exclusive.

I like it!

I think it would have been nice to use the same head on different bodies to get the same effect (would still save on costs but not be a direct repaint) but I'm on board with the concept.

Mmm, I like the head design, but this is a big pass for me. Lio Convoy was good enough for me. Don't get me wrong, the Orion Pax mold is great (a little too small though), but don't just keep shoveling out the same mold with newer heads and paint jobs to match their characters. Would've been better if they used a previous mold from either an Optimus Prime or Ultra Magnus from a series of the past. Then again, you know how many Hasbro (and sometimes Takara to a degree) molds get reused for repaints regardless if it's for retail or exclusive releases.

Oh, I am so on board for this. This is the closest to an official Nova Prime we're getting, so I'm not complaining. I can see an upgrade kit from third parties in the near future, and if they look good, I'll pick up a set.

Can't wait for next Thursday's reveal!

I can just imagine him yelling at Optimus about "Manifest Destiny" and "Technological Perfection" in a high squeaky voice. He's so tiny!

...Seriously??? Why do I somehow feel so insulted by this offering? Granted, this is likely the closest we will get to an official Nova Prime, plus the fact that HasTak doesn't actually owe fans anthing, but...man I feel so underwhelmed. With the exception of the headsculpt, everything about him is underwhelming. Such an awesome and imposing character...reduced to the height of a small deluxe. Worst of all, he will be offered at 3PC pricing. Ouch. And I will not shell out $50 to $100 extra for a set of 3PC wings. Thanks, but no thanks. I am waiting patiently for MMC's Seraph Prominon.

Thank you Funpub for saving me some money. Im perfectly happy with my official Hyper Novae. It officially exists and officially looks awesome and Im offically looking at it sitting on my shelf right now. So I wont be needing this. Ill take the Lio Convoy. But not this...

It looks ok but I don't think that mold is good enough to make multiple repaints desirable.

Wait.. they're going to use the same mode twice in the same wave of figures? Ok. now that really is being lazy. I mean, seriousy, it would have been ironic if they had used the Laser Prime mode.

I wonder if this particular version of him will hail from the same universe as Rewind, Chromedome, Stylor, Treadshot, and Catgut. :-?
