    I bought a collection from a guy a few months ago and it included a SDCC Nemesis Prime that had not for resale painted on it.

    Is this a prototype?

    How rare is this figure?

    I am curious as I am wondering whether I should keep it or not.

    SDCC Nemesis Prime.

    It is not a KO. I have read about this figure awhile ago but forgot what it was called.

    At that point it could even be a KO Proto.

    Not as rare as the '08 WonderFest Black Convoy prototype.

    Is that even complete in the first place? :sly2:

    Certainly looks so. The other gun is converted into his backpack, and he's holding the other gun in his hand :)

    Huh, Nemesis Prime actually looks pretty friendly with the blue head.

    It's a test shot, not a prototype.
    I don't know if that head was originally on there, though. Could be a henkei convoy swap, or a KO convoy swap.

    Oops! Overlooked his "backpack", was only looking at the other hand which is empty. :lol

    @ Ultimus Prime. I rather think that this might just be a prototype and looks quite old too. I just wonder if it was meant not for sale, then where that guy got this from whom you bought this.

    Neat. I'm going to have to look at mine but I like the Blue Head on it.
