    I really hope Nemesis Prime gets released as the FE mold. From what I've seen its an amazing mold next to the PRID Prime.

    It would be a great chance for Hasbro to attempt to get the mold out to people like they said sometime back about releasing the molds in some form.

    Of course I'd be happy with the Powerizer/Voyager PRID Optimus we have now if they went that route, just as long as they keep the Shattered Glass colorscheme he seems to have in the previews. I've always wanted an SG Prime haha.

    What do you guys think?

    Since we've yet to learn of a redeco of the RiD Voyager Optimus, if Hasbro does release a Nemesis redeco, I'd think the RiD is as likely as the FE mold because Hasbro hasn't redecoed the RiD one yet either nor have we heard of plans for one yet.

    That said, yes if/when we receive some kind of Nemesis/Black Convoy/Darkside redeco, I want it to be the FE Voyager mold. Black redecos are Takara's specialty, so I'm hoping if/when they release one as a store exclusive that they use the FE mold.

    They could release the FE prime mould in electric-pink and baby-shit green and I'd still buy it. Such a wonderful design.

    Yeah, I'd very much like the nemesis version to use the FE body, if nothing else because it'll be something a little different for the people who already have the RID (which is probably more than who have the FE), and in either case it'll be a back repaint of what many consider to be the better mold. On top of that, it'll probably be more popular with older kids anyway than younger ones (not to mention the collector market), thus working in favor of the FE mold yet again.

    If they want to make money (which im sure they do)...theyll make it out of the FE mold since that one was hard to find....add the black redeco and they can charge anything they want for the win.....expect this one to destroy whats left of your wallets...lol

    as pro-FE as i am i think id rather have nemesis prime use the RID mold

    but thats mostly cuz i already have the FE

    i think Nemesis might make the RID mold look decent and the idea of having him be different than prime [in terms of transformation] would make him a little more "neat"

    like its just mech's way of making a transformation, since theyd have no idea how to duplicate optimus' transformation or something

    i dunno :p 

    thats just me

    FE or RID, just would not a make difference to me, I would still buy it. But I suspect it won't happen (I Know I Know TF:p rime BLAH BLAH BLAH) just because Hasbro has had many opportunities to do a Nemmy/Scourge and has not done so. Seriously, when was the last Nemesis done and given a wide release in America? Armada?

    Prove me wrong HASBRO!

    Well, if it came with the FE Sword, I'd be all over it.

    think it would be very cool to have optimus and nemesis using 2 different molds in the mainline. would not only distinguish them color wise, but also the mold, appearance and transformation. I really hope they end up doing this to bring a little variety into the line.

    I do like the RiD mold very much but it would just be nice to have some difference between the two besides just colors.

    Either mold is good as far as I am concerned, maybe they will produce it, if not I see myself buying an rid mold and modding it out to NP.

    I'd prefer Nemesis be the FE mold, mostly since I never found one (no near TRU's) and at this point probably never will...

    It's a longshot, but stranger things have happened.

    The only downside is that if they used the FE mold RID Optimus would look like an undersized wuss next to his evil twin. I would still buy it because the mold is awesome and it would give me a chance to have two of those rifles and swords for dual wielding.
    It seems more likely than in the past that Hasbro would do some type of Nemesis figure because he is actually a character on the show this time around.

    Hasbro hasn't released a real redeco of a Prime mold (barring Botcon exclusives) in four years.

    Other than Botshots Nemesis Prime.

    I am not hopeful for a Nemesis Prime toy.

    As far as TF Prime goes, I'm a sucker for getting at least one iteration of every character that's physically appeared in the show so far, no matter how brief or insignificant they were (like getting a 2nd RiD Wheeljack for Makeshift, or RiD Cliffjumper to repaint into Tailgate). I wouldn't mind a Nemesis Prime redeco of either Voyager mold (and I usually stay away from black Prime/Megatron repaints as a rule of thumb since Nemesis Prime never interested me as a character choice before).
