Earlier, an Amazon UK listing for Transformers Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime was found, letting us know that this toy would at least not be a show exclusive that would not be sold anywhere else. But we did not know if this toy would also be sold on amazon elsewhere in the world or if Amazon would be the main (or exclusive) global retailer.

Well now we know. Thanks to Sabrblade, we now know that not only is it listed on multiple amazon websites across the globe, but the US listing also stated that this is an Amazon exclusive. Also, while the description does not state that he comes with the blaster weapon the original toy comes with, the box image does show that he comes packaged with the same gun (which can be seen below).

Amazon exclusive figure evolves from Nemesis Pax to Nemesis Prime
Comes with a special edition Decepticon Giza figure
Also comes with Dark Matrix of Leadership and Dark Saber accessories
Works with Prime Master figures (Prime Master figures not included. Each sold separately. Subject to availability.)
Includes Leader Class Nemesis Prime figure with Evolution armor, Decepticon Giza figure, Dark Matrix of Leadership accessory, Dark Saber accessory, 2 arm cannon accessories, collector card, and instructions. Ages 8 and up.

Amazon Canada

Amazon France

Neat! Hope he pops up at a point where I can afford him. And stays in stock for more than 5 minutes.

There's supposed to be time with no new product, the way stuff has been released lately every other month with no time for a wave to saturate is insane! We're only supposed to have four waves in PotP and at this rate we'll have wave 3 in the US in May. Things need to slow down. I really do hope WfC wave 1 hits in January (it'll be December, but I can hope) to bring things back in line. Hasbro doesn't understand how to pace themselves. Look at Titans Return: In the second half of 2016 we got wave 1-3, but that only left waves 4 through 6 for all of 2017 (and some of us still only had wave 3 for most of the year). Hasbro's own release outline for PotP said wave 1 in December, wave 2 in April, and wave 3 in July (wave 4 probably September or October, they didn't put a date on it). This schedule makes sense, but the reality is moving way too fast.

Doesn't really matter, Cyberverse is going to be a full, multi wave and probably multi year line replacing RID, not something you can wedge in between Generations waves.

I agree. I miss the days of lines being able to breathe.

Large retailers really only seem to care about exclusive movie figures. Aside from some stuff at TRU, when was the last time we saw a non-shared CHUG exclusive at Target or Walmart. The answer is 2009 for both. Target got Universe Leo Prime (white) while Walmart got Universe Ultra Hardhead, Powerglide (red), and Skyfall. And considering how poorly Walmart handled their TLK exclusives do we really want them to get more exclusives? I sure don't.

Just noticed that it looks like they fixed the rear side panels of the truck cab so that they are flush with the rest of the truck, which looks much better sans the rear top of the truck cab.

I hope I can get him. He looks amazing! And after getting pop Optimus, I want him.

Im pretty hyped for the new nemesis prime. Although I wish the arm guns could be stored without having a hole in the trailer

I'm afraid not, that's a trick of perspective. The "smokestacks" they hinge on are still inset, you can tell by looking at the where the other side would be.

That's a fair, though I would counter-argue that Movie toys and Generations toys don't even seem to follow the same rules. I'm sure it's just coincidence, but distribution for those two lines don't seem to follow any of the same patterns.

I don't know how exclusives shake out for distro -- but I do feel that to retailers a Transformer is a Transformer, be they Generations or Studio Series.

But to everyone else, they simply aren't the same.

Someone save slash's heart! Springer will wreck it once she sees him with arcee and the other fembots. :lol:

My only wish for nem prime is for them to have added the option to attach the side guns onto the cab like the original Nemesis prime amarda toy. I understand that as it is now it references powermaster prime's trailer but, having a further reference to the amarda version would have been nice.

Typically Hasbro comes up with exclusives and then looks for a retailer willing to sell them. The fact that Walmart and Target have only done movie exclusives since 2009 proves that they know what they're getting into. Not only that, but they've also been getting exclusive rights to certain characters. For Dark of the Moon Target got all of the Leadfoot figures, for Age of Extinction Walmart got everything Stinger and Target had Silver Knight Optimus, and then for The Last Knight Walmart got Hot Rod. The fact that they aren't showing interest in CHUG exclusives but are very aware of what they're getting from the movies speaks volumes of where they see the most potential profit.

I know I don't swing by here a whole lot, but I just managed to find Battletrap's components yesterday (they were hiding behind Wave 1 and TR Legends!) and had an impromptu photoshoot. These guys are by no means the peak of Legends-class Transformers, but they are a bunch of fun and I haven't been able to put them down for the last 24 hours!
Image
They absolutely each have their own problems, but I'm finding them oddly forgivable despite the fact that I'm objectively less-than-thrilled with at least 1-2 of each of their individual modes.
Image
Image
Applied some Sharpie to Roadtrap's hubcaps because of course I would; as always, he looks notably better now than he did prior.

I messed around a bit with Battletrap, and ended up with this configuration! Roadtrap's arms pointing upward, looking kind of like stabilizer pistons or something, and a heli-pack instead of an awkward blade sticking out his crotch. I like the slightly thicker waist, thinner legs, hip-wheels (I really love that design whenever I see it, for some reason), and slightly better color balance too IMO. It does restrict his kickin' waist swivel a fair bit, and it can be annoying having to reposition Roady's arms every time you want to move Battletrap's legs, but I think it's worth it for the upgrade he receives to his looks :D

Well that, and the fact that almost every single TLK figure shelfwarmed for MONTHS after their initial release whilst ALSO taking up almost twice as much space as RiD and/or Generations.

This is really light shelfwarming compared to other toys more earning of that title. Especially where every wave 1 bumblebee would keep selling out.

Dang... Maybe in your area. TLK is the worst I've ever seen. The only thing I've ever seen worse than the main TLK toys are the All Spark Tech toys. Which are still, technically, in the TLK line.

You're right, the Bumblebees sold out. But NONE of the other Deluxes moved. At all.

Voyagers did okay. Except for Grimlock, whom was objectively the shelfwarmiest toy I've ever seen.

The choice of exclusives make sense, since the movies had marketing dollars and frankly, the Bayverse movies are to thank for bringing TFs back into the pop culture mainstream....and should fund more Generations to come.
