    The fact that he uses a dark teal instead of black for the legs (and the unseen head) is really obvious in these photos. I like it!

    I found two different ones on ebay, one with the red windows and Autobot symbols, and one with blue windows and Decepticon symbols. Which one is the real one? It's obvious that they are both using the test shots we've seen on the web, but which one is gonna be the real release?

    The one with red windows (which is the one I intend to obtain) will be released in Japan. The one linked above is the SDCC version.

    I also prefer the red windows to to the normal ones, but the SDCC one beats out the Jap one in every other way, IMO. So the SDCC one is the one I'm getting.

    Well just to let you know both have red eyes (SDCC is painted over red the other is translucent). Plus the SDCC head is cast in dark teal plastic, which might stand out on the mostly black body of the other version.

    Oh and nothing has been confirmed regarding the red window one, most people are presuming it's a Japanese release because it follows the paint layout of the HenKei Convoy closely. All we know is that it is not the SDCC version.

    The blue windows with the dark blue/teal legs is a great match IMO. That by itself puts it heads and tails over a simple "Nemesis" redeco. But who am I kidding? I'll be getting this AND the Takara one. ^_^

    Actually, that's not true. Hasbro confirmed at Botcon that the red windows Nemesis Prime is a TakaraTOMY exclusive.

    I missed that bit that Hasbro actually confirmed it was TakaraTomy, as if there was any doubt. :)

    It was actually mentioned/cleared up in a Botcon panel.

    Still not sure what to think of this version. Probably just light/photo, but the windows look more purple on that one.

    From what I can tell, SDCC is releasing Nemesis Prime and TakTomy is releasing Nucleon Quest Optimus. If that is indeed the case, I'll get both. From all the pics I've seen, it looks like Nemesis still has blue eyes. If he does have red, which he SHOULD, then I'll be happy. If not, I'll swap it out with the Nucleon one.
