I am super excited for Highbrow, can't wait to get him, the new Fallen is looking pretty awesome too. I just wish Hasbro would do a Leader Class version of The Fallen, now that would be sweet!!

The information was good, but this guy needs to stick to photo reviews. The camera was shaky and unfocused and his hands moved too quickly to see any of the finer details. So, overall good review, poor video review.

That being said, if I can get my hands on a TF He-Man maybe I'll invest in Skeletor. Maybe Pretenders Stranglehold XD

Highbrow I'll probably get, but reserve judgment until he's in my hands.

i watched the review, the reviewer wasnt that good and he need to find something else or stick with photo's or something. anyway, The Smurf Fallen isnt bad, it could be worse, but i do think the new helmet and staff features, but hate the face underneath, but im trying to justify is he is worth buying again since i already have the Burning Fallen in my collection. I'll wait to see him in person and then ill think about it. But for right, im undecided about him.

I'm confused about Black Convoy, so please excuse my ignorance on the subject. Is Black Convoy supposed to be Nemesis Prime and if so, then shouldn't the faction symbol be Decepticon instead of Autobot? I thought the same when Masterpiece Black Convoy came out and it too had the Autobot faction symbol on it.

Not a Nemesis. Can't explain why all that well. But i'm sure someone will come through and explain. I really don't know how the setup for this Black Convoy is. Well not even a Black Convoy, because the character originated in America, so it's Optimus. #-o I just hurt myself.

So, exactly HOW limited is that "Black Convoy" *cough* Nemesis Prime *cough*?? I think he said 300 or so now, but another show coming? I wouldn't mind snagging one of those...

I've explained it before and I'll explain it again:

The Japanese have an extreme fondness for black repaints, as evidenced in the different TF lines and outside of them (like Super Sentai). However, They also hate repaints that are turned into new characters. So most of the time, a Japanese black repaint is the same character, only in black. These are denoted as "(Name) Black Version", unlike the evil clones who are named "Black (name)". Here's the short list of Japanese black repaints, separated between the two categories:

Evil Clones
BWII Black Lioconvoy
BW Neo Black Big Convoy (not Universe 2003 Nemesis Prime)
CR Black Convoy (aka RiD Scourge)
ML Scourge with Sweep (Armada Nemesis Prime with Run-Over)
BT Black Convoy (Alternator Nemesis Prime)

Black Versions (i.e. same character)
JAFCon Convoy
Nucleon Quest Super Convoy
MP-1B Convoy Black Version
THS-02B G1 Convoy Black Version
A-01 Convoy Super Black (repurposed as Universe 2003 Nemesis Prime)

To reiterate: Not every black Prime repaint is a Nemesis Prime!

Thanks for clearing that up. Sorry I missed the first few times you had to explain it.

Ironic that the Japanese hate repaints that are turned into completely different characters as I would rather the repaint be a completely different character (ROTF Sideswipe & ROTF Swerve). At least I feel like I'm getting something for my money as opposed to an existing character with a different paint job (i.e. ROTF Shadow Command Megatron) where I feel I'm being cheated out of my money.

the fallen looks great! they should have had the staff and removable mask with the early versions though.
the others are all ok and still might pick some of them up

As far as I can tell, it's in the 1300-1500 range.

I am an admitted Black Convoy/ Nemesis Prime/ Scourge junkie, so when I saw the TFA Optimus done in this style, I was all over it. I just received mine today via Ebay, and it is a large slice of pure awesome. The paint apps are perfect and he has just that right amount of badass-ness that I am officially calling him TFA Nemesis Prime (at least in my own home, and apparently in a worldwide forum LOL) :P

On a serious note, though, considering how well it was done and the limited production of this figure, I definitely recommend picking it up if you are a TFA fan.
