    (I have a feeling this thread may be deleted later.)

    If you all remember the episode "Nemesis Prime" where an evil Optimus clone roamed about killing people, There was something I noticed that no one else seemed to pick up on, Not even TFwiki... Nemesis Prime has more in common with SG Optimus Prime. Here's what I noticed. Nemesis Prime has faded colors like a dying cybertronian in past shows. It may be just me but when I saw the faded red and blue, It looked like a light purple and black which happens to be the colors of SG Optimus. Could be just a coincidence. But I also picked up on this. Yellowish eyes, An evil look-alike of the good Prime we know and love, and being seen killing humans.

    I know this was Silas' dirty work the puppet being used to do but to me it seems like the episode or the project named in said episode should have been called "Broken Mirror". Or atleast a line referencing Shattered Glass in the episode. Then again it also has a few references to Karr from Knight Rider but anyway, That was just my view on Nemesis Prime and catching the possible alternate reference. I love Shattered Glass and I do hope this reference was intentional.

    (End of pointless ramble)

    Come to think of it the color scheme does remind me of SG.

    The Yellow glow was supposedly an easter egg reference to Peter Cullens run as KARR the evil counterpart of KITT on Knight Rider.

    I've head the shattered glass thoughts before, but I still don't see it. Nemesis Prime is like, beat up red and blue--dunno how people are seeing Shattered Glass colors on him, but that's fine. Nothing new though

    Nemesis Prime has existed in one form or another loooooong before Funpub's fluff universe.

    I think, just bear with me, Nemesis Prime is a reference to Nemesis Prime.

    I thought the yellow eyes were to do with Clancy Brown's previous role as Parallax, the yellow entity of fear in then Green Lantern film.

    Not sure whether it works, or whether I'm just seeing something that's not really there...

    Yes, RID and Armada. I know that. Hell, G1 technically had an evil Optimus.

    I also know it was a reference to Nemesis Prime, HENCE the name. All I am saying is I saw some SG Optimus in him too. And Karr... And Blackout kinda.

    Armada brought in Nemesis Prime, after RID created Scourge.

    I was having issues during that whole episode. He looked purple and black to me, but in some clips he just looked like regular Prime with faded colors and rust. I choose to call it a sg reference and call it a day. Unless we cansee themodel without the dynamic lighting that changed time every other scene it will be hard to be 100% sure
