    Rob Liefeld and the 1990s called: they want their "EXTREME" and "EDGY" and "COOL" aesthetic back.

    Transformers that don't transform are hot garbage.

    The proportions and angles on this figure are simply unpleasing to my optic sensors. Add in the inability to transform and the $400 price tag and you've got one heckuva bad idea.

    I would never buy this because I don't buy Transformers that don't transform, but that last image looks pretty cool. Very metal.

    I wouldn't buy one for 99% off.

    Ok, maybe for 99% off.

    I'm going to re-iterate my post from another thread.

    It both breaks my heart and is hilarious how much merchandise Nemesis Prime gets as an Optimus repaint, but how little figures he actually gets.

    Even though I'm not really a fan of some of the design aspects of this, I can appreciate it for what it is.

    That being said, I having recently jumped on the 3rd party offerings wagon (oh by Harambe's spirit PE-DX08 - Origin Leonidas will be here soon in the mail) that the constant trying to one up one another 3rd party battle of here's my version of a G1 character is tiring.

    "Here's my version of blah blah blah."
    "Oh yeah? Here's my version of blah blah blah. Now with more blah blah."


    I dig that a lot more IDW inspired figures are popping up, but would it kill anyone to do interpretations from some of the other series, Armada, Energon etc? And I'm not forgetting some of the Animated inspired one either, its just an overwhelming G1 dance off anymore.

    My wallet would never forgive me.

    In all seriousness, it was a very impressive figure with the optimus release, but i like the nemesis colors on this guy more. However, just like with prime, I cannot justify spending almost $400 on a transformer that doesn\'t transform. Besides, I have striker noir, so I think I\'m covered for super posable nemesis prime figures.

    I totally agree with you on the figures from other series. I want a new armada optimus and megatron so bad, and with masterpiece and 3rd parties proving they are willing to go further than ever to achieve show accuracy, this is the perfect time for figures like these.

    Yeah I'd dig an updated version of those two, or a skinny version of Energon Optimus. He was bit of a chunky monkey originally. I wasn't particularly a fan of those series in writing aspects but I did like a lot of the character designs from them.

    Isn't Nemesis Prime the equivalent to Faker in MOTU? I just don't see the point, but if other people want it, go for it.
