There are almost no details regarding this newly revealed product aside from a photo. But this photo has been posted by Hasrbo's official Transformers account on the Wall, Russia's social media website. This is the very same place we first saw Power of the Primes Wreck Gar. This time, we have a post featuring Nemesis Prime emerging from the snow hoping Spring has finally come to Russia (Canada can sympathize). We see a black redeco of Transformers Power of the Primes Optimus Prime with a new head and new weapons. The weapons on his forearms are very reminiscent of the ones that came with Armada Nemesis Prime, which was the first Nemesis Prime we ever got, making this an homage to that toy.

All we know is that this must be exclusive since Hasbro already confirmed that there would be no new leader class toys in Power of the Primes Wave 4. And we also know it can't be a Toysrus exclusive. Wreck Gar was set to be a Walgreens exclusive, so it may be the same for Nemesis Prime, but nothing is confirmed about this toy aside from the fact that it exists.

Let us know what you think of this toy in the comments!

The text reads "Spring is near!"

"Spring is close" is the more direct one but that's not how you'd say that in English.

Looks like a fake/custom to me, that's Toxitron's head.

Nah, it's close to it but look at the cheeks. Toxitron doesn't have those vents.

But if it is a fake, nice render of Armada OP forearm guns/smokestacks!

I've skipped this mould for now because it never felt right.. never quite sure who it wanted to be. The evolution gimmick reminded me too much of power master prime, the combined form was very MP-10 like... but f this guys come out for a decent price I'd get him. Not that I have any connection with the character - but in spite of the reasons for me not getting him, he seems like a fun version of prime and like many moulds, looks excellent in black.

I hope it's real, it looks nifty. Especially the wrist guns

Walgreens exclusive? I wonder if my accountant will let me spend a $grand on an exclusive... :-?

(#hyperbole If this is a Walgreens exclusive, I do wonder just how expensive this will be... :shock: )

I wouldn't count on it being a Walgreens exclusive. I can't speak for all Walgreens, but in my area, at least, I have never seen a Transformer bigger than Deluxe class. I would be very surprised if it was a Walgreens exclusive.

Every time I see the PotP Optimus I can't help thinking that looks so good and I want it, but I really don't need another Optimus. If only it came in black and grey... Needless to say if this real I will be a very happy man.

Well it looks kinda cooler than the regular one but never been fond of black repaints. They often just seem kinda drab and the nice details get too hidden unless you got right kind of light shining on it.

If it's real then someone put a lot of work into designing a near identical head. His forehead crest has the exact same pattern. Looking back the early photoshop FunPub made for Toxitron did have the vents, but the actual figure didn't. Plus the paint was pretty thick on the figure, not as sharp looking as this image. So it's either real and at some point Hasbro transferred the head render from that figure to this one or it's an amazing photoshop.

I find the sword in his left hand intriguing, it has a lot of joints on it. Maybe turns into a jet?

Maybe $50? Their other exclusives weren't ridiculously overpriced. Brainstorm was the same price as their other Deluxe figures ($17.99) and the clones cost less then two Legends (also $17.99). But I doubt it'll be a Walgreens exclusive, it's bigger and more expensive than most of the toys they sell. I'd sooner believe Target or a convention for something like this.

Not something I would buy but interesting to see if the pax inside gets a new head. A dark pax is incredibly stupid.

This is odd...usually HTS doesn't discriminate prices between toys of the exact same size, unlike 3P sellers who will jack up the price of toys who are short packed in an assortment, or not sell them individually at all. Especially since Optimus is available both in wave 1 and Wave 2....also don't get your hopes up, these are NOT in stock, even though it says *add to cart*

Oh, nice catch! It looks like maybe a bird head there on the hilt, with that blade definitely splitting up to become wings.

Deathsaurus has been rumored for ages, maybe it's a recolored Eaglebreast?

The red sword looks like the Armada Star Saber.

That actually looks kinda cool. I just hope that the Orion Pax mold has been heavily retooled so he's not just "Nemesis Pax".

I see it more as an original mold homaging the armada minicon that came with nemesis prime

EDIT: The original minicon was a plane, not a bird oops.

Could be. Pretty sure this one is meant to reference Run-Over. This is clearly based on Armada Nemesis Prime.

Additionally, the new weapons are the only thing that makes me think this is real. (Well that AND every Optimus is inevitably going to be painted black.)

Additionally additionally, instead of making me lose sleep thinking that Onyx Prime will ONLY come with Predaking, they totally could have released this sword-with-birdish-face-molding as the unnecessary-but-still-kinda-nice-to-have sixth combiner member. Like Ion Scythe.

Wouldn't be the first time. Hasbro's new sweep head in the platinum line is so similar to the Botcon Devcon head, people thought it was the same. But no, totally new. And that exclusive was so exclusive, it never came to the US.
