Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronians philswitch engage and cdavid3, along with the official announcement from the Botcon Twitter account, we now have word that one of this year's Transformers Collectors' Club Exclusive Figures, Nova Prime, is available for purchase.

Transformers News: Transformers Collectors' Club Exclusive Nova Prime Now Available Plus FSS 3.0 Updates

Transformers Collectors' Club Members may order Nova Prime from theTransformers Club Store by following this link. This figure will set you back $59 plus shipping. Nova Prime is a recolored version of Generations Orion Pax, and features a new head sculpt that is also found on this year's Collectors' Club Membership Incentive figure Lio Convoy.

The order page also lists this bio and information for Nova Prime:
AUTOBOT® HIGH COMMANDER

“‘Till all are redeemed"

NOVA PRIME walks a fine line between being the leader his heritage demands and battling inner demons that threaten to tear his synaptic conscious to a psychotic breaking point. While his ‘accolades’ will be remembered in the Halls of Iacon for eons, he is looking for redemption for what he sees as a ‘lapse in vision’ for his fellow Cybertronians. Combining his Quantum Fusion cannon and his “G-Metal” Battle Axe, NOVA PRIME is a formidable warrior on the battlefield and a masterful tactician in the war room. NOVA PRIME has been given a second chance and seeks to usher in a new Golden Age of Cybertron®. Will a new lasting peace on Cybertron finally come to fruition or will the whispers of the past come back to haunt NOVA PRIME, taking away any chance at redemption and plunging Cybertron once again into…Chaos?

Nova Prime is a Deluxe sized figure which features an ALL-NEW head sculpt. Look for Nova Prime later this year in the 2015 TCC Magazine Club comic. The toy is packed in a convention style box with a foam insert for easy removal and display. There is also an additional cut out for you to store the Lio ConvoyTM figure.*

*Lio Convoy sold separately


If you aren't a member of the Transformers Collectors' Club and would like to sign up so you can order the figure, check out the club's website.

Additionally, it looks as if the free incentive figure Lio Convoy and the first part of Figure Subscription Service 3.0 will be mailing out soon. An email sent out to club members had the following to say about it:

Hello Club Members,

If you are participating in the FSS 3.0 service, please verify your address at the FSS site by logging in making sure your address is correct by the end of day Thursday, May 7. We will be working shipping these out to you and the end of next week.

If your address has changed since March 16th, please email your correct address to admin@funpubinc.com as well. Please note that the systems are totally separate so if you have moved, you will need to update both the FSS and send an email to admin for your club free figure.

Thanks for your support!

Jumping on board with all this club goodness, or sitting on the sidelines? Talk about it with your fellow Seibertronians by clicking "Reply" at the top of this news story.

Who is that Purple Prime on the box?

I can't tell if it's SG Optimus, some obscure Nemesis, or that Purple Lucky Draw(?) Lio Convoy figure whose name I forget.

That bio... Just who is this version of Nova and what universe is he from?

I've only heard one theory about who he is and where he's from, and a whole lot of you guys are likely to not like it if it's true.

Therefore, I'll spoiler-tag the theory:

The theory is that he's Shattered Glass Optimus Prime after having been reformatted by the good Unicron, like how the evil Unicron turned Megatron into Galvatron in the 1986 movie, but with the added twist of the good Unicron trying to turn SG Optimus into a good guy.

I got him, primarily because I want to give that halberd to Chromia.

Wouldn't Unicron be evil no matter the universe, being a multiversal singularity?

Pete has chimed in about that and confirmed that the Unicron seen previously in the "Another Light" preview is, and I quote, "good".

How that relates the Multiversal Singularity concept, which is still in play since Part 1 of "Another Light" had G1/BW/Classics/etc. Prowl give the first ever in-fiction mention of the concept, is anyone's guess, but Pete also noted that we'll just have to wait and see what this "good Unicron's" deal is.

Personally, I'm thinking it's just some other guy who isn't a god, but who also happens to just have the same name and look as the dark god. An "impostor" or "lookalike", of sorts.

That's actually pretty cool and would beat the pants off another random purple Prime.

This reminds me, I need to update the list of BotCon/TCC fiction again with latest magazine issue fiction.

Looks very nice, but getting both him and Lio Convoy seems somewhat redundant, sure, they're different characters, but the colorsschemes are far too similar IMO and the mold suits Nova a lot more.
That said, it's out of my budget :/

I ordered Nova in the hope that the face ends up looking nicer in person. Hopefully we get that black/purple deco sometime in the near future. He looks nice.

That's one expensive halberd!

It's interesting how Lio Convoy and some of the FSS figures have shown up on eBay but nothing for Nova Prime. I was looking to get it early.

I've been saying this since day one of seeing this figure. Glad to know I'm not the only one doing this, haha. Though in recent fiction, Chromia has been using blasters.

I know a modification to make nova prime have wings by unsliding his arm panels if they are not glued on and placing them on his back

Galva-LioConvoy? I was thinking the same thing, but the head isn't colored right for that. Could just be an evil Nova Prime if what's posted above is true, before being made good. Would explain the purple.

More highway robbery via the TFCC! YAY!

$60 for THIS? That is insulting.

Oof, you've probably got international shipping to get killed on with it too. Out of curiosity, what's something like this run when you're not in the states?

You'd be paying for the exclusivity, plus the new (outsourced) head, not the mold itself ;)

I wonder what lead the Club to decide on Lio Convoy be the free figure instead of Nova. :-?

I think Lio made more sense given the recent emphasis on Beast Wars characters as the freebie; Depthcharge, Protoform X, etc.

Yep, that right there. Nova Prime is a money grab (I ain't mad, just pointing it out.)

Even if he is (or might be) just SG Optimus.
