BBTS has posted a pre-order page for Alternity Nissan GT-R Convoy Super Black. Note that the silhouette picture on the pre-order page is Megatron though. This item is due to arrive in June. It is not clear at this time, if this item will be an exclusive, although it is priced more than the other Alternity figures

Doesn't Japan mix their Black Convoys up between super-charged good guy Convoys and evil Nemesis Convoys?

Though usually, the 100% Black paintjob goes to super-charged, and the black/purpley scheme goes to Nemesis...

Being this says "Super Black", I'd lean at a supercharging here myself...

I got my preorder in yesterday thanks to Counterpunch.

I'm interested how this figure is going to look. Are they going to go with black/teal of black/silver? Either way I can't wait to get it.

So if this means there's going to be an Alternity Nemesis Prime...then I'm going to be forced to buy it. Damn...

Woohaaa... frontpaged for the first time B-)

I'll be choosing from the silver and the black version, maybe I'll get both eventually. The version in Prime's colours is a pass for me.

If it's Nemesis Prime I may end up getting this in the end, then I won't have to buy it in the other colors.

Don't get your hopes up about this being a Nemesis Prime. This'll most likely be a black prime, with red windows and an autobot symbol somewhere on him, just like most of the Black Japanese releases.
Re: Alternity Optimus Prime - Super Black (867287)
Posted by WolfDawg on January 15th, 2009 @ 11:31am CST
If he's black with red windows and a little teal, then I don't care what they call him, I'm gonna call him Nemesis Prime; no matter what his faction is.

Sounds like Optimus is getting his THIRD Black Body. First was RobotMasters, and second was Hybrid Style.

Nucleon Quest - completely new body that was black to begin with. No power-up involved.
Luck Draw Fire convoy - merely a black repainted toy. No fiction = no in-story explanation
JAFCON Prime - another black repainted toy. No story explanation.

Got any more?

hmmm nope i'm out.

But did ths and robotmasters have a seperate story referring to him being black? I'm to lazy to dig out my box and can't read japanese anyway.

As far as nucleon quest goes tfu has it listed as

"In order for him to extract the super-energy "Nucleon" that exists in black holes, his entire structure is now protected by a phase modulation shield. He can now carry out activity in super-gravitic environments."

sounds more like a powerup than a new body, but perhaps that is incorrect.

Isn't it slightly premature to assume that this one will have a seperate story regarding being a powered up version?

The Nucleon Quest body is definitely a new body. The one he had prior to it was his "Star Convoy" body.

But, it could mean that this body was coated with the phase modulation shield as it was being constructed for Prime.

As for the RobotMasters and this Alternity toy, both of them are the same power up used in different timelines. Remember, Binaltech splintered off from the G1 timeline into its own story, but all the characters are from the same timeline, as they existed before the separation of time.
