There's a new listing for Optimus Prime on Amazon.com.  This one is listed as Transformers Movie Leader Nightwatch Optimus Prime.  There is no picture, but from the discription it seems this will be a mostly black version of the leader class Prime.  You can see the listing here.

There are at least two repaints of movie figures in the works.  They are the movie molds of Jazz and Starscream repainted with their g1 color schemes.  To view the pictures go to Target's web site here and enter the code ENERGON.

There's also a new password for www.Sectorseven.org "deceptibot".  There's a downloadable audio file titled "Transformers Theme 07".  

Tom DeSanto is already thinking of Transformers Movie sequels.  He goes so far as to say he has a way to bring the Dinobots and Constructicons into the fold.  You can read the altogether to breif interview here.

There's also an interview with Micheal Bay on Yahoo.com.  In it he discusses why he put flames on Optimus.  Micheal also gives us an interesting number 10,108.  To find out what it represents you'll have to watch the video here

Siebertron.com has a number of images of the new Transformers 3-D Battle Card Game.  You can view the pictures here.

Also on Seibertron.com are pictures of the Japanese versions of the Real Gear toys.  The Japanese versions are nearly identical except for the display images.  The images on the display screens of the Japanese Real Gear toys are from the movie.  You can check out the images here.

There's 10 codes for the Target thing. "Allspark" gives you a video game trailer. "Robovision" gives you some Optimus Prime toy pix. "Rollout" gives you an animation of the transforming giftcard. Wait, I get it. You're supposed to drag the robo-vision thing around to find the codes. "Gen1" gives you codes for the video game. Awesome!

Another Robo-vision code might shed some light on those Sector 7 basics that we've seen. The code "Bullseye" gives you a bunch of pix and blueprints and bios for Arcee, Hardtop and Signal Flare. According to the bios Hardtop is a Decepticon and Signal Flare is an Autobot that just happen to have S7 logos on them.

You need 10 codes to unlock something amazing... so far I have found 6: ROBOVISION, ROLLOUT, BULLSEYE, GEN1, ALLSPARK, ENERGON ...

ALLSPARK, ACTIVISION, FREEDOM, SENTIENT, SECTOR7. They don't do anything when all 10 are entered besides what you unlock individually. Cool, but still pointless and a bit falsly advertised...

The repaints r acttually pretty good, tho why isnt Starscreams cocpit yellow? Im suprised they gave Jazz the numbers and all, I would have thought it would be just stripes. I made a G1 colored version of Jazz, which was based off of a custom on www.tfmaster.com. You can find the one I based my custom off of here: http://www.tfmaster.com/gallery_kb0130.php

i dont care what anyone says , the flames on the movie prime look awsome . and they shouldnt change the paint job painting him black .they should call him nemesis prime instead of nightwatch .

ahh megatron thats very true but if they called him nemesis prime the they would break the great tradition of flooding the shelves with the same toys like...lightning strike batman....or five different repaints of the batmobile...i could go on but i think you get the idea

Plus to add on to humanerror's train of thought, Nemesis Prime is an evil version on Optimus, but this Nightwatch is supposed to be the same Optimus in a stealth mode. So I think it makes sense.

I highly doubt it's an Evil Optimus counterpart or a Black Repaint... I agree with humanerror and Master Dex, I remember all the reissues of so many different Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman action figures, sometimes the exact same mold from a previous release but repainted and several add ons...

Not sure how authentic it might be, seeing how it may be photoshopped so easily nowadays... Just google it and you can pop up same thing on different sites...

Actually, Nightwatch O.P. is mostly dark blue. Oh, by the way, FUCK YOU!
