    Everything here will be listed in a bundle auction on Ebay tonight.

    My first Scourge gave me some hell. Screws stripped, my transparent red sputtered and left a texture on the windows, I broke the metallic teal bottle, and more...
    Ended up just wrapping up the project and selling him (almost instantly) with a low price "Buy it Now" on Ebay.

    This time I set out to do the full job i planned from the start.
    He has more vibrant teal colors, a new rifle, a cleaner paint job, and a trailer for vehicle mode (non-transforming).

    Thanks to AutobotX23 for the heads up on where to get a great fitting trailer!

    The first Nemesis Prime was this figure (pictured with my custom), which was called Scourge in the American version RID show and toy.
    The dark evil version of Optimus because known more as Nemesis Prime over time, and there has been no shortage of custom repaints of Optimus to Nemesis through the years.
    This was a fun chance to pay full tribute to the original.

    Another custom that would actually get me to buy that mold. Nice job!

    Where did you get the trailer, if you don't mind me asking?

    Unicron-9, you and I will have done a very, very similar custom, sir. Mine has one twist though :)  I'm almost done; looking forward to share it with everyone.

    Keep up the good work!!

    That's the exact same trailer I started to paint for mine. After a few failed attempts, though, I gave up. Looks good!

    Thank you! And thanks to all for the nice comments.

    Dude yours looks spectacular, trailer or not.
    I planned to add hinges and make my trailer transform but as I tried to wedge the parts apart it felt like they would sooner break than pop apart.

    Yeah, that was one cheap ass trailer, wasn't it? Now I've got an ugly green diecast semi truck that I have no use for.

    For me, that's where having kids is nice. My 8 year old girl got the semi cab and loves it. She gets whatever extra crap I wouldn't use for customs. Often to her, they are just great toys to play with. Ahhh the imagination of a child.... I miss having that.

    Yeah the trailer fits the truck pretty dern good too. I sure hope the extras aren't somehow detracting from the overall appeal of bidding. Just one bid so far! :O
