Stock Images for Transformers Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime Reveal New Heads for Both Robots

Postby william-james88 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 8:18 am

This is gonna be the big news of the week, something many waited for: official product shots of the new Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime!

We get a look at all his modes and accessories and we are revealed something pretty awesome: the smaller Orion Pax mold sports a new head. We also see the Giza bird/sword partner in all its modes. We also see a black and purple matrix and an image of Nemesis Prime in his box. The box is much larger than the typical Power of the Prime leader box (we included an image of those for comparison). This much larger box definitely adds to the notion that we are looking at an exclusive release, along with the mention of Hasbro that there are no new POTP leaders released at retail after Optimal Optimus.

Now, the leader Optimus toy has gotten mixed reviews, especially with the shortcomings of the alt mode, and with this possibly being a higher price (both for the added accessories and exclusive nature, meaning no opportunities for later discounts) is this a toy you plan on purchasing? And at what price?

The images for Nemesis Prime come from TFND and it was fellow Seibertronian Albatross who sent them our way.

Don't play with my feelings like that... :-(
All things considered though, I knew there would be a Nemesis Prime to go with Nemesis Rodimus(Unicronus sounds corny), but I couldn't figure out how they would do it with Orion Pax in there. Now I know( And knowing is half the battle! :michaelbay: ) I also expected him to come in this exact deco. If price is good, He'll be the one to pick up instead of Optimus( Optimus just looks awesome in black ;)^ )

Can't disagree there. I really wanted a Nucleon Convoy back in the day, and I don't want to drop $$$ on the 3rd party release of it, so this will satisfy my desire plus keep my wallet from running out on me! My wife, OTOH...

None. My guess from the past is that this will not be a retailer exclusive. Probably available at SDCC and then on Hasbro toy shop for $60. Something similar to Skateboard Prime of last year (who was also a black redeco of a gen leader Prime).

I love that they gave Pax a new head, as I was disappointed Nemesis Hot Rod didn't go that extra mile. I wonder what the smaller robot's name will be. Ooh, how about Scourge? A Scourge that turns into Nemesis Prime? Yes, please!

It is amazing how much a single color scheme improves the truck mode by hiding the disaster behind the cab, and on the front of the trailer.

So not only is he real, he's also got a new head. Goddamn I want this guy so bad: shame he'll most likely be some exclusive I can't afford.

Nemesis is looking great! I bet he'll be at SDCC as well.

I'm finding the SS line in stores much more readily than wave2. Still no sign of Submarauder....I want more PMs. ;)

Two swords and the rifle? If I wasn't so jaded I'd say we're being spoiled. This is cool but it also gives me hope for a PMOP somewhere, someday.

I want this...

This does beg the question.. why is the one figure that USED this gimmick to begin with, Ultra Magnus, not being incorporated into it, lol... I get that we already have a UM fig with Minimus Ambus, but this gimmick was his to begin with.

I'm a sucker when it comes to Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime figures so I'll definitely be getting this bot! I wouldn't be surprised to see this being a BBTS or HasbroToyShop Exclusive, possibly even a Target Exclusive since there is precedent for that...

LOVE the new heads and weapons! Not sure if Giza's wings/blade will look as good from the front, but the other sword reminds me of Megatronus's spark mode and would make a perfect weapon for any new Fallens in the future. Was going to skip this mold entirely, but now...

I could go for that.



Sadly, Hasbro's prime poll told us there would be a new toy for the winner, but not what KIND of new toy! Had we all known about the evolution gimmick, Ultra Magnus and fellow "perfect fits" Star Saber and Thunderwing would have had much better chances.

If they retooled him from this figure, it would continue the character's history of sharing a mold with Scourge. :-?

I wouldn't be too sure about that beast wars has a huge following and that would have over ruled the discussion about what kind of toy we would have got. Also story wise primal does fit as he evolves twice in the show (three times if you count beast machines)

One of the reasons I miss the club the most is not getting rich back stories for figures like this. I wish we could get some one-off comics with contained stories for guys like this... and a bio and tech spec at the end... or even some prose, in a pinch.

As is, still wondering what the story behind this Orion Pax guy is. He looks a lot like Soundblaster. Are they intending that (with the bird partner)... or something else?
