    Is that a hardcopy, because it looks like it's molded in black and orange plastic (which would make it a testshot)

    Yes, supposing I am using the correct terminology, this is an "unpainted injection-molded hardcopy test shot prototype". Boy that's a lot of words!

    I totally agree! The best part is the fact that it's injection molded in these colors. No worries over custom paint chipping! It just rocks! Hmm. since I know there's a 2nd one out there, if this is Optimal Nemesis, would the other be The Fallen Primal?

    Impressive. If I had that kind of money spare I'd certainly be considering this, purely as a piece of Transformers history.

    If I recall correctly, he should be around Leader class. Of course it was years ago since I saw it in the shops. And I dont have it so its noty accurate.

    But that is a very nice piece. But too rich for my blood.

    I had to pay out my hoo-ha to get it in the first place. Believe me, I thought long and hard about how much to list it for. Partially, I based the opening bid on how much similarly rare TF items go for, and partially on my need to at least break even!

    Leader class would be a very good comparison. Essentially, he's about as tall as G1 Metroplex or G1 Omega Supreme.

    He is a piece of history for sure! I recall an interview with the designer who said that it was the design he was the most proud of. He had one of the black versions on his shelf. It took me five years to find it. I hate to let it go, but I really do have a house to buy, and a dying car to replace!

    Those colors are much better than what we got. I was amazed they made him soo cool looking in season 3 of the show in spite of the colors and design. If it hadn't have been for the show, I'd have never bought the figure.

    Very nice

    It's not a hardcopy though, it's a first shot

    A lil overpriced too, if it was a hardcopy then the price would be right, bit too much for a first shot
