    I think it's kind of neat.

    Looks good in these colors. I just can't justify spending $40 again on this mold.

    Hmm... I was planning on skipping this repaint, but I'm thinking I may just get him. I like the darker paint scheme and I also like the fact that he doesn't have Autobot symbols, but symbols from each of the different planets. Pretty cool IMO.

    Although, since he doesn't have 'bot symbols... I think I'll make him a new evil Prime with some labels from reprp labels. The dark color scheme easily leands itself to an evil paint schem and, although not a traditional Nemesi paint scheme, I think I'll call him Cybertron Scourge! And he can combine with Nemesis Breaker. :thumb

    I saw this in super mode on Metroplex's box. Nice touch on the planet symbols.

    Won't buy it, of course. But it's nice!

    Y'know, the fact that at least parts of him are molded in black would make a Nemesis Prime repaint that much easier.

    This color scheme is cool but the planet symbols instead the Autobot ones sucks hard...

    These will be sitting much like the Galvatron repaints clogging shelves now.

    Not different enough from the regular version.

    Wow, that looks a lot better than I thought it would. The yellowish headlights and red guns are great. And the blue on knees livens it up just enough. Shame it's so big/costly though, otherwise I might be tempted. But then I don't need a 3rd (or 4th if you count the THS) version of the mold.

    I like it. Black looks nice with the red, I like the symbols. If I didn't have the original, I'd buy it. But I'm not buying it twice. I'd buy a Galvatron and have 2 of that mold before I'd buy Prime and have 2 of that mold. Plus I'm getting married soon so I don't have tons of money to shell out and I must be choosy with my purchases.

    EDIT: What do you wanna bet the Alt Mustang is going to be a straight repaint of Wheeljack named Downshift?

    I think it looks good. If Wing Saber gets a decent Redeco too it might make for a really good combination.

    aside from the red bits on the big guns, he looks really good in Truckk mode ~ better than the original, I'd say. (if they really needed to colour those, i'd'a just gone black.)

    still wish they'd gone 'unreleased G2 Hero Prime (Dark blue) for him, but i'm pretty tempted to pick him up if he ever makes it onsale...
    pretty sure it's just a dark smoke colour to the clear ~ you can see the details inside his bot mode chest...

    It's much better than the original "black in place of blue" I thought it'd be, but now it looks to have too few paint apps amid the sea of black. I hate the impossible to please fanboy in me. :( 

    Still, might be worth getting on sale.

    My thoughts exactly. It looks good, maybe better than the first one, but it's just TOO similar to the previous one.

    I'll be skipping it.

    I like the Cyber Planet logos on the shoulder though.

    Nice colour scheme, shame it's on such an expensive toy.
    What I would like, though, is for a future Optimus to use this colour scheme instead of the red and blue. The black gives him more of a gritty edge. Might be good for a movie Prime, it'd still be Optimus but it would also be fresh.

    It's looks great. Would have been a great scheme to use as the main deco in the first place. I would have loved it for that. As a $40 repaint...it really needed to be more different than the original.

    I think it would of been alot better if they used White or Silver instead of Red as Prime primary colour.

    Then he and Cybertron Galvatron would look awesome together.
