    I'de like to know of all the different black convoys/nemesis primes out there.

    To my knowledge, I know of the:

    • T.H.S. - 02
    • Black Lio Convoy
    • Nemesis Prime of Big Convoy
    • Slightly Darker Nemesis Prime of Big Convoy
    • Black Armada Prime Nemesis
    • Black Alternator Nemesis Prime, also the one from Wonderfest I believe
    • Scourge from RiD of course
    • Scourge spychanger as well

    And yeah... After that, I have no idea. I'm attempting to somewhat collect as many of these guys as possible, so let me know, thanks.

    Also, and photos of unmentioned black convoys are welcomed, I'de love to actually see them as well.

    If anyone also has any info on the Sand Diego Bot Con release of a Black Convoy painted Classic Prime, let me know as well.

    IIRC, there was an official Takara black G1 Convoy, issued at a Japanese toy convention at some point back in the mists of time. Clearly there's black KOs of the G1 Prime on eBay, but that convention one was the only legit version - so that's another for your list, but it's probably absurd money...

    In another thread I gave you a link with the only picture we have of that Classics Nemesis Prime to go on for comic-con 08. The only other information I can offer is that if you can't attend, bigbadtoystore.com should have some as well as your local collector shop and of course ebay.

    If you can attend…you will have to hunt down the Hasbro rep to get a ticket…then you will have to go line up to see what times you can stand in line to collect the exclusives.

    I'm so glad I don't feel the need of getting all Black Primes...Once you started, I'm pretty sure you start buying black version of all characters and Takara loves making them, often as exclusives.

    Having said that I wouldn't mind NQ Convoy, he looks chunky enough to join my Black Convoy/Scourges.

    yeah but are these really considered nemesis though?

    Black Lio Convoy
    Black Big Convoy

    or any with the word black in it? or are they just black and still considered an autobot?

    I dunno. But Scythe asked for all "Black Convoys", so I figured I'd add those on the list ("Black Lio Convoy" and "Black Big Convoy"). Mind you, I was also debating on whether or not to add Black Rodimus Convoys as well... :p 

    And holy crap I forgot one. A VERY important one. (I'll add him to my previous listing):

    CarRobots / RiD:
    - Black Super Fire Convoy (Lucky Draw figure, limited to about 520)

    Would Galva-Lio Convoy count? Also, Armada Nemesis Prime was a mass-release, not an exclusive. And Universe Nemesis Prime was a Target exclusive, not KB Toys'. There's also a gold and black version of TM Optimus Primal that was a Lucky Draw, although I can't quite remember if it's the full size version or the smaller simplified version of the toy.

    Thanks. Changed some of the "extra info notes" on my previous list (Bendy Nemesis and Universe Nemesis).
    I wasn't aware of a Black/Gold TM Primal Lucky Draw, though...

    Oh wow, thanks guys. Aside from the lucky draw figure and the binaltech nemesis prime, I'll try to snag one of each, thanks again everyone.

    Not really.

    As I recall, though I may be a bit hazy:

    G1:
    - Black G1 Convoy (JAFCon exclusive)

    Bad Guy. Created by Megatron.

    - Nucleon Quest Superconvoy (Black Powermaster Prime) (Toys R Us Japan exclusive)

    Good guy. NQ is Powermaster Prime with special Black Hole armor/coating for high gravity environments and used it to withstand the extreme gravitational forces to acquire Nucleon from the event horizon of a Black Hole.

    - Black WST Prime

    No Story.

    Beast Wars:
    - Onyx Primal (Bat Primal repaint) (Botcon '96 exclusive)

    Good guy.

    - Black Lio Convoy

    Bad guy. Appeared in episode 16 of Beast Wars II, a creation of a black stone which creates an evil version of anything it is exposed to, the same stone created an all black version of BB which was even more evil then BB and later Lio Convoy.

    - Black Big Convoy

    Super Good Guy. Appeared in the manga. Created by Vector Sigma to destroy the invading Blendtrons.

    - Universe Nemesis Prime (different Big Convoy repaint) (Target exclusive)

    Bad guy. A twisted alternate universe version of Prime. Appeared in the Club Comics.

    CarRobots / RiD:
    - CarRobots Black Convoy (G2 Laser Prime repaint)

    Technically both. A good guy until he was altered by Gigatron to be a bad guy, then later reduced to a drone.

    - RiD Scourge (different G2 Laser Prime repaint) (Toys R Us exclusive)

    Pretty much same story.

    - Destructicon Scourge (G2 Hero Prime repaint) (KB Toys exclusive)

    All bad guy now.

    - Spychanger Scourge (Spychager version of above RiD Scourge)

    See above.

    - Black Super Fire Convoy (Lucky Draw figure, limited to about 520)

    No story.

    Micron Densetsu / Armada:
    - STD Scourge (Terebi Magazine mail-away exclusive)

    Bad guy. His minicon is called Sweep!

    - (Bendy) Nemesis Prime

    Bad guy, alternate Unicron/Sideways form.

    SuperLink / Energon:
    - Pla-Kit Grand Scourge (model kit)

    Unknown. He was introduced as an ambiguous character and the story never continued.

    RobotMasters:
    - Black G1 Convoy (Dengeki Hobby magazine mail-away exclusive)
    - Black Beast Convoy (Hobby Japan magazine mail-away exclusive)
    - Black Lio Convoy (Dengeki Hobby magazine mail-away exclusive)

    All good as memory serves.

    Binaltech / Alternators:
    - Alternators #24 Nemesis Prime (SDCC Exclusive)

    Bad guy.

    - BT-17 Black Convoy (Wonderfest 2007 exclusive)

    Mostly bad guy.

    Other:
    - Hybrid-Style THS-02B Black G1 Convoy (eHobby exclusive)

    No story.

    For a time, I was after all of them, but with the model kits and the outrageous prices for Black Fire Convoy, I've become less of a completist, though I do have most of them. I also saw a redundancy with getting both Alternator and Binaltech Black Convoys, so just got Nemesis Prime.

    Oh, and my Nucleon Quest SuperConvoy is wearing the God Bomber armor from God Ginrai, and looks pretty snazzy for the record. A giant brick, but a snazzy one. Like Fr33domgundam, I have around 90% of the list.

    Doesn't the back of the box that the T.H.S. - 02 comes in explain Optimus turning all black? It's in Japanese, so I can't read what's goin' on.

    Black WST Convoy is unofficial product made by a KO group. Just a note for the list. Otherwise seems pretty comprehensive. I have the majority of these too. Only missing Black Big Convoy, whose after-market price is effing stupid since it was a widely released store exclusive.

    EFF, is that the system they're going to stick by? Pretty damned lame system, if you ask me. In the midst of the chaos, someone could easily get two, three or four tickets and be able to go through the line numerous times for numerous purchases.
