Fellow TFW contributor Protoman has tweeted
some new photos of the BTS Nova Lord prototype. Interestingly enough, parts of the jet mode are based on the Rise Of Cobra Night Raven
from GI Joe
. Modes are the following:
This triple changer is quite big, with Protoman chiming in the following:Just to let you know.......
The robot mode is 18 inches tall. To give you an idea. Fortress Maximus is 23 inches tall.........
This is a big move on BTS' part, moving from trailers for Classics Prime to their 1st fully fledged figure, and a big triple changer at that!Read Replies (0)

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters toyline is now a very familiar name among the Transformers Fans. It has come a long way since being just a trademark at USPTO.
We’ve been hearing and seeing quite a lot of Toys from the upcoming 3rd Season of Transformers: Prime. But what about Role Play Accessories?
2005 Boards Member hardreturn is bringing us something very cool from Walmart; Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime Mask.
Priced at US$ 14.92 this new Optimus Prime Mask features a pull-down visor and it appears as though it has replaced his regular Mouthplate. It’s hard to tell at the moment, but again… the color Green is emphasized.
