Optimus Prime has more to contend with in the Nendoroid line than just Megatron! Nemesis Prime is now a Nendoroid curtesy of Sentinel (the toy company, not the Prime) and looking good in black as he always does. He's a pretty simple repaint of Optimus Prime and includes his same accessories of an energon axe and blaster. Still, he has more articulation than your average Nendoroid and an interchangeable pointing hand. He's due out in July 2022 for $54.99 USD.

What do you think is more likely to happen next, a Megatron repaint, something new (Optimus is specifically referred to as the G1 ver. after all), or none of the above? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

Considering neither Optimus nor Megatron are out yet, I would say putting Nemesis up for sale is a bit sus, if you ask me.

I'll stick with Op & Megs and see if they're any good before thinking about any recolours.

Japan may have forced the cancellation of yet another Wonder Festival, but Good Smile Company still managed to hold a virtual version of their con-within-a-con Wonderful Hobby Life For You 35 this past weekend. And mixed in with the many, many dozens of new figures on display among their many, many partner companies was none other than Starscream in Nendoroid form. He's looking great, and like Megatron will certainly come with a nice selection of expressions, though he already seems to come default with the best one, that smirk. Whatever else he might come with hasn't been revealed just yet.

Since this was just announced it'll probably be a little while longer before pre-orders open, but he's currently scheduled for June 2022 so probably wont be much longer. This marks the third Decepticon to hit the line after Megatron and Nemesis Prime so we should hopefully have another Autobot to go with Optimus Prime announced soon enough.

I suspect the next figure will be Bumblebee, followed by Soundwave (and possibly cassettes), Thundercracker, Skywarp, Soundblaster and some other Seeker repaints/remolds.

If they're going to continue the line, then perhaps Jazz and Ironhide?

I'm basing this off previous Japanese character releases for things like Bearbrick, AU KDDI phone bots, small PVC figures, etc.

Bee and the Seekers feel like a safe bet, probably a G2 Bee repaint as well. They're already doing more figures than I really expected them to do (I was sure it would just be the first three, Starscream surprised me) so anything goes. If they're going with easy repaints then Ironhide and Ratchet would be an easy way to add to the Autobot ranks.

The Nendoroid Transformers are almost here and we have some shots of the first release from the "G1" line, Optimus Prime. Watching all his stances recreated in this super cute fashion thanks to the various accessories and great articulation is fun. These shots come from ShentuToyBox on Weibo. The shot between him and the new live action Optimus Prime Nendroid is particularly interesting since it looks like a filter between cartoon and live action for the same character, which is what we had hoped for all along as fans (in terms of live action designs).

Not a great product and far too expensive for what it is. The head lacks full articulation due to the size, the joints were floppy on mine and the lack of accessories (such as alternative face plates, which most Nenderoids have) didn't help either. The plastic felt thin or "cheap" too, akin to slightly better than Gunpla plastic.

I sent mine back to Amazon Japan and cancelled my order for the Megatron version. At around ¥4-5,000 they were simply overpriced. I've had better quality/value-for-money SD figures from Gundam lines or even official/KO/3P TFs. Nenderoids are also often KO'd, so I might get a (hopefully larger) version of these in the future, at a much more realistic price.

Also, for those wishing to buy Nenderoids, they might want to rethink about it:

-
"...New information, shared exclusively with WIRED, provides greater detail into 4chan’s largely unpublicized relationship with a major Japanese toy firm called the Good Smile Company. Legal documents, corporate records, and interviews with those familiar with both companies show that Good Smile played a role in 4chan’s 2015 acquisition..."
