on a slightly different note, how long do you think it will be before hasbro decides to make a repain of sentinal prime from dotm to reprisent alpha trion?
i would say it's verry likely that it will happen whether it be leader class or cyberverse

I dunno. They've already done an Alpha Trion not too long ago and they've never used any Movie molds (I think I once read that they don't use those for BotCon figures for some reason)

And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Thanks to TF: Prime episode 24 and TFWiki, we have some good (or, at least, decent) looks at the Thirteen as they appear in the modern Aligned Continuity.

Here they are together (well, 11 of them).
Image

And in battle (still 11).
Image

At the Well of All Sparks (Where are the other two?)
Image

And now for some good guesses as to who's who.

Since he's placed up front (and looks close enough), this might be Prima.
Image

Likely Alpha Trion
Image

Maybe the Liege Maximo
Image

SO totally Vector Prime! :D
Image

Probably Nexus Prime (the dude with the visor, not the dude on the left)
Image

Looks feminine enough to be Solus Prime. Supported by her wielding the Magnus Hammer and being a weaponsmith.
Image

This isn't pictured yet, but I'm guessing that Megatronus Prime is the the big hulking guy with the fiery eyes and sparkly body seen in the first three pics.

But Nova Prime isn't one of the 13. :|

I didn't see it either, until TFWiki pointed this guy out and I thought about this for a moment. Remember when I described to you what Vector Prime's redesign shown at BotCon looked like? Well, of the 11 Primes shown here, this one bears the closest resemblance to that redesign. This bot pictured here has a dial on his chest like Vector Prime does (both in his Cybertron design and his new design). He has notches on his forhead that resemble those seen on the forehead of the Autobot symbol (and Vector Prime's face was designed to look like the Autobot symbol). And a closer look at this bot will reveal a mustached beard, which Vector Prime's BotCon design had. Though, his shoulder pads and cape appear to be missing or at least hidden from view.

However, it should be noted that the new 13er redesigns shown at BotCon were taken from out of Hasbro's production bible, which has designs for this series (Prime, WFC, Exodus, Exiles, WFC2, etc.) that look a little different from the final versions. Compare their Earth-style Optimus Prime to the one shown in the cartoon. Quite a difference even though it represents the same guy. So, I guess I shouldn't take BotCon designs as gospel, but they could still be used for clues as to who's who in these images. And of the 11 bots shown here, the aforementioned one is the one that bears the most resemblance to any design of Vector Prime. :D

Since it's a concept I wonder if it'll ever get used in some form of fiction. Though, this pic was taken from the Vault book. ;)
