    He's about 90% complete at the moment, just waiting on a bottle of tamiya chrome silver to finish his grey areas. Paint should be here tomorrow, so I'm hoping to have him finished Wednesday night. So, here are some pics as he's been taken apart and painted so far.

    Come on people, He can call it whatever he wants. These Nemesis Prime vs. Scourge arguments are redundant, pointless, and have no place in a custom thread that the creator has decided to call Nemesis Prime. ;)  Besides I see no teal on him anywhere. :p 

    Awesome custom by the way. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Interesting repaint so far :) 

    Question? :) 

    Is your repaint based on Scourge or Nemesis Prime? they are both vastly different characters from each other that just so happen to share some physical attributes in terms of color and molding tbh.

    This is Nemesis Prime.

    If your going to paint him up as Scourge then why not use the RID Scourge as the basis for your repaint?

    IMO calling him Nemesis Scourge in general is a tad confusing because Nemesis came from TF Armada and was a Sparkless Alien that just happened to copy himself after Prime. and Scourge in RID was a Protoform that megatron had in his possession and had accidentally scanned prime and a tanker truck at the same time. Scourge was leader of the decepticons. whereas nemesis prime was factionless and couldn't even talk, he seemed to be more like a Drone or mindless automation more than anything. :) 

    again just my opinion.

    I hope you don't mind my feedback. :)

    The actual name isn't that important to me, just than people are enjoying what they see. I have both Scourge and Nemesis Prime figures you posted above. I wasn't really trying to base him on either version, although perhaps slightly on Scourge(as he's a black variation of G2 Laser Prime) in body mold. I went with Metallic blue paint, if I had some metallic red & translucent red, I would have also done his sword and light piping areas in red as well, which I guess would have made the "which one is he" discussion even more difficult. :)

    I don't mind the feedback at all, I appreciate it! Every bit of it so far has been really cool. This is my first real attempt at repainting a tf, but I've had about 10 years making WWE/Wrestling customs and wanted to take a shot at one of my other loves.

    After some more thought about the figure and your question Gauge0001, I think I was mostly influenced by the KO Voyager Prime's being sold as Nemesis Prime with the red windows. When I get my hands on the paint I mentioned previously, I plan to come back to this one and get the piping and windows painted red and hopefully it'll still retain some of it's function.

    There's so much great stuff being done on here, it's all so inspiring to see and makes me want to do more. Started to rush on the Scourge (Sweep) posted above, but I want him to be totally blue in body, and his sweeps would be the basic Hasbro release with white for my collection. If I can get my hands on 2 Red Alerts I'd have some fun with those. I picked up a couple of extra Thundercrackers the other day to repaint, not sure as what though. I do have the Megavolt Robot Factory Starscream coronation kit and the Leader-1 head that came with it, I could do that but I was never a Gobots fan. Another idea was a seeker mold version of Jetfire, which could be a lot of fun. I'm excited to get to working on something else once these two are finished.
