Remember last year when we had that legion class Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime that got a special repaint as Jeffrey the giraffe for Toys R Us? Well, that special is happening again this year, only this time with the Robots in Disguise minicon battle pack Optimus Prime! This version of Prime is once again a Toys R Us exclusive for Japan and will be available October 8. Check out an image of it below, and check out Snakes Blog where this initial report came from!

It's a good mold so I'd bite on it.

Again thanks to Seibertronian Logan., we have more images of upcoming Transformers to show you through Twitter user Tagoal!! Below are three pictures each of TakaraTomy's own version of the recently released Robots in Disguise (2015) Warrior Windblade as well as TAV56 Nemesis Prime, their exclusive black repaint of the recently released Robots in Disguise (2015) Warrior Power Surge Optimus Prime. Take a look and tell us what you think of their decos!

I think that's just the Hasbro version of Starscream. The shoulder sticker is in the style of those on Hasbro's figures rather than those on Takara's figures.

Man, the Windblade mold is so nice, but Hasbro's paint job (or lack thereof) makes it look so bad, and I don't have the money for the Takara... :BANG_HEAD:

You're absolutely right; I saw it right after Nemesis and Windblade on the twitter account and jumped on it :HEADHURTS: I'll fix it right away.

I don't care for Windblade or Starscream but I need that Nemesis Prime in my life.

Yeah, I have the tru exclusive version, it's pretty good. But trust TT to turn these figures into the works of art and love they were designed to be, primus knows hasbro would never do that - too costly >:oP

On a weird rando whim I pre-ordered this guy from AmiAmi (where you can't cancel pre-orders) and I was starting to regret it. But, now that I see these pictures I remember why I did it.
He's AWESOME! :michaelbay:

No regrets. :lol:

It's like rule #46 of Transformers; a black repaint is an obvious and pretty easy way to sell a toy again... but goddamn if it isn't always beautiful.

Only nitpick with Nemesis, and the mold itself, is that the wings seem a little too low. Otherwise, though, he's awesome. Good work Takara. ;)^

I've thought this too. I'm surprised it hasn't been brought up before. If youre going to give a figure wings make them at his shoulders, granted they probably weren't able to do that with this mold.
I really wish I hadn't missed the preorders for Nemesis Prime, although it's for the best since I already have one black Prime figure and if I got any more I'd really be down the rabbit hole.
