    Title says it all. My guess is that most will choose the Classics SDCC repaint, though my favorite is personally Armada Nemesis Prime.

    Why, you ask? First off, in a line full of blockiness and clunky gimmicks, Bendy Prime was a surprising gem. Bendy Prime, Tidal Wave, and Overload are the stand outs of the line. His figure, however, just looked damn mean and didn't really suit an autobot. The repaint, in this sense, was perfect. It has excellent articulation, an unobtrusive (though somewhat useless) gimmick, and excellent paint apps that really make the figure look damn evil. It's about 8 years old now, and still stands well with modern figures, something that absolutely not be said about most of Armada.

    Plus, give him the black Japanese exclusive Cruellock sword and he looks incredible. The colors match the mold perfectly.The sword can be mounted on his back, and due to his excellent articulation, he can actually do the "sword draw" pose. If anyone wants pics of this set up, just say so. Overall, next to the original, he's far and away the best Nemesis Prime.

    So, what's your opinion on the best Nemesis Prime figure?

    I actually like armada as well. If mammoth counts, then he gets my vote.

    When was Nucleon Quest Super Convoy released? Before or after RID Scourge? If after, then he gets my vote. If he was before, then I have no clue... None of them top Scourge. I like Armada Nemesis Prime, but he was better when you switched out his khaki parts for the grey on regular Bendy Prime.

    For me the SDCC version, as it's all I own. I like it's headsculpt a lot. Fits Nemesis Prime more than Optimus.

    I looove Nemesis Prime so I'll chide in. My favorite NP is RiD Scourge because of its posability, great accessories, and the overall looks just scream badass. I have Armada NP, Black Convoy, ComicCon NP, Alternator NP, and KB exclusive Destructon Scourge, but none of them measures up to RiD Scourge. I still want Galaxy Quest PM Prime black repaint, Jafcon Black OP, and MP Optimus Prime sleep mode (so I can slap Con symbol on it) to complete my Nemesis Prime collection. That's like at least $1,000 right there. :(

    If counting in Alternity (Does Black Convoy = Nemesis Convoy/Prime?), my vote goes to Alternity too


    Followed by SDCC Universe Nemesis Prime & Universe Nemesis Prime (Mammoth)

    Followed by MP Nemesis Convoy and the other 3rd Party products...

    Basically they can't fail (too badly) with a Nemesis Prime/Convoy

    Nucleon Quest Convoy =/= Nemesis Prime

    That said, SDCC was the only Nemmy I owned and a great mold in it's own right.
