Toy Review: Amazon Exclusive Nemesis Prime and Giza

While Optimus Prime serves as a beacon of hope and courage, Nemesis Prime represents fear and despair! This evil Decepticon is just as strong and powerful as Optimus, but he is a purely destructive force with no mercy. Check out my review and gallery of Amazon exclusive "Power of the Primes" Nemesis Prime!

Toy News: Possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal revealed

A surprise post on Baidu appears to show a possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal figure! This redeco of "Power of the Primes" Optimus Primal using Optimus Prime's original black/white/red color scheme! Optimus sits on the "Throne of the Primes" and it appears he comes with what could be the "final" three Prime Masters that have not been released at retail. Also included is a mace that seems to double as a scepter and a homage to Transmetal Optimus Primal's mace weapons.
