    War for Cybertron Nemesis Prime.

    Before the great Cybertron war, Nemesis and Optimus went to the Omicron Defense Academy together. They were known to be 2 of the top bots and very similar to each other, but Nemesis always finished second to Optimus at everything despite being bigger and stronger.
    His jealousy, combined with a serious temper problem, got Nemesis expelled just before graduation.
    He never got over that incident.
    His anger and jealousy led him to the brink of insanity and he became addicted to modifying himself.
    When Megatron began the war and bots began taking sides, Nemesis didn't even seek Megatron's approval. He quickly decided he was a Decepticon, carved the symbol into his abdomen, and went on a raging psychotic warpath to destroy Optimus.

    Many millennium later, Megtron will have Nemesis sent to a planet called earth through the space bridge. He will subject Nemesis to an experiment because of his structural likeness to Optimus Prime. Nemesis will one day take the same form as his... nemesis. He will become Nemesis Prime.

    I really like the idea, I never have thought of Landmine/quake as being a Nemesis Prime. The customs perfect, the only complaint I have is just my opinion about the head not seeming to fit.

    Thanks. The idea is that he wasn't just Optimus with different colors until he got to earth way later.

    Nope. Lego Knights. :)

    This is a great choice for a NP, and it's executed very well :thumb

    Thank you! I'm not crazy about his skinny thighs but I've always loved the landmine base figure and its many transformation options.

    Wow! Using Landmine as a base is a stroke of genius and to be honest NP is a walking f'n nightmare that who don't want to (bleep) with.

    WOw I love this! Looks freakin great!!!
    Makes me wanna repaint mmy landmine.. Wow!

    I do agree the head doesn't fit quite right, I think the voyager prime head might look good up there.. Too rounded for such a bulky look.. But other than that minor gripe.. AMAZING!

    Best custom I've seen all year, and I don't even know why.

    I'd say this is a very "brave" custom. Not many people would dare use that particular mold to do a character like Scourge, because of the rather odd proportions and whatnot. However, for some strange reason, it just works. It works really well. There is something very "dark knight"-ish about it. Yes... it looks like some kind of overly-stylized caricature of a dark knight.

    love it...but someone previously commented on the head not fitting right....I think all it would need would be bigger antenneas or spikes or whatever they are lol.

    All in all though...wicked amazing

    Very nice. Creative use of the mould; like a lot of people have said, Landmine isn't an obvious choice for something like this (though looking back at it, I can see the vehicle mode working for a more G1-style Animated Sentinel Prime). He really really works, though; like Ezilla said, definitely not a mech to mess with. The bio's really cool, too.
    I think what stands out for me is the swords, though; I instantly recognised them as Knights Kingdom weapons (I have one with the same design), but the graded paintjob on the blades and the detailing really make them sing.

    Thanks! I agree he would look cooler with big head spike antennas or something but the head has to be a certain size to transform.

    I actually didn't want to use an obvious mold since he wasn't an Optimus clone until he got to earth (in RID as Scourge anyway- first appearance I know of). Thanks for the kind words!

    Oh and he is on Ebay now with a super low buy now for a one of a kind toy as usual.
