Ladies and gents, 'bots and 'cons, we here at Seibertron.com are excited to present our newest additions to our ever-expanding toy galleries, Takara Tomy's Lost Age Grimlock (Generation One edition) and Slug (Generation One edition)! While from a glance they look the same as their San Diego Comic Con 2014 selves, these Japanese exclusives sport notable differences, such as less chrome, more details, and different paint applications. Without further adieu, the preliminary images to these new additions!

I think Hasbro won this round on both of them. Still kinda strange that they Takara Tomy based their Slug/Slag on Canadian Slag, or at least the Slag from the box photos. Seems like way too much red to be the true G1 Slag.

Rare and hard to find. Both toys have perfect detailing. I want to grab these toys. They look cool.

I think the black head would have looked better as well. Too much red.

We told you we'd bring you more news in the black repaint department - and it's the two main characters from Transformers: Age of Extinction, Optimus Prime and Grimlock! Check out the latest instalment of the Seibetron.com galleries, featuring the Transformers Expo 2014 Nemesis Grimlock and Nemesis Prime Exclusives, redecos of Voyagers Evasion Mode Optimus and Dinobot Grimlock, both of which were limited to the Japanese event and we were able to procure for your visual enjoyment.

Kinda sad there are just as many Nemeses as there are canon Decepticons... and the one canon Nemesis, Stinger, is unaccounted for. Pfft.

Those two are pretty damn cool, though.

i have no need for a black and purple grimlock. to me theres pretty much either nemesis/black (reserved pretty much for primes) and shattered glass. and SG grimmy doesnt look like that to me.

prime on the other hand, will be mine. even at those terrifying after market prices...

Well, if Optimus can have an evil clone, why can't Grimlock too?

I want that Prime. Gahhh! Why is this guy so goddamn sparse?

Just an FYI for those of you interested. I paid $300 for the pair for AOE Nemesis Prime and Nemesis Grimlock, $150 a piece, including the cost of shipping. That price is absurd, but limited supply and sold out items dictate price unfortunately. The prices that they are at currently on eBay of $220 plus shipping is just nuts. Those prices make other convention exclusive prices look pretty reasonable!

So, if Hasbro repaints any figure in black and turquoise deco, it is called nemesis whatever? And for what, a double dip on an overpriced toy?


I just read some of you paid $300 for these? This stuff IS like crack, as some of you joke. You are addicts, just in a less physically destructive way.

TakaraTomy does it too, in fact they've overtaken Hasbro in that department. The $300 tag can be attributed to 3 factors: Japanese, exclusive, and convention, in ascending order.

I don't really care for the Nemesis shtick, as it's too overused and diluted. None of them hold a candle to RiD Scourge (in my case, CR Black Convoy).

The heck is up with those prices? That Nemesis Prime doesn't even look that good to me. $150 is a huge Masterpiece's price, not for something like this. :HEADHURTS:

They were only available at the Transformers Expo in Yokohama, Japan, and in extremely limited quantities. After the Expo was over, that was it. No other chances to get these figures aside from those who were actually there. It's one of those "you had to be there in person to get these" cases.
