    No body images, but the super mode heads shot seems to imply a black verison of Nova Prime.

    Is that a Powermaster Prime head on the far bottom right?

    Grand Scourge has been ordered. When do you think we'll be able to see the full renders of this guy?

    This is all super confusing, but I'm kinda getting it now, there are so many kits. What happened to the one to make Scourge cool, I know there is the one to make him into Nemesis Prime, but I guess he could just be called Scourge :)  I think thats the one that is missing. Perhaps it could have different colored eyes

    Its confusing because the name "Nemesis Prime" means 2 different things:

    1. Your typical black (and teal) Optimus repaint. The SND set for this is called Primo Nemein and is a straight up redeco of the Vitalis set.

    2. Nova Prime from the IDW comics after he has been infected by the Dead Universe. The SND set for this is Primo Necrosis and is a redeco of the X-Mortis set.

    Both of these sets use the Takara Grand Scourge version of the CW Prime mold. And another easy way of thinking about these sets is that all three decos of CW Prime are recieving 2 upgrade sets: 1 without wings, and 1 with wings.

    Despite my love for all things Nemesis, the two kits for Grand Scourge will be my only skips on these... I just can't do that yellow/gold and black deco as a Nemesis...

    The biggest flaw, in my opinion, of TFP was doing the gold instead of the standard issue silver... I *think* that's where it started.

    I just realised, Black Nova would be an awesome name for a 70s blaxploitation movie. :p 

    To be honest, I'm not sure why they weren't included during the panel. I'll see what I can do!

    Yup, basically, it's Simon Furman's fault; we had something cool and new with Nova Prime, then he turned black and called himself Nemesis Prime, thus losing his unique appeal.

    I think it's fairly certain that IDW agrees with which is cooler, since he reverted back to Nova Prime ASAP, and his black form hasn't been spoken of since. :p 

    Alas, they're not going to be sold separately. There'd be no point, since they're moulded to work specifically with the new heads in the kits. :p 

    I seem to remember there was a repaint of Big Convoy as Nemesis Prime, too, and he had a lot of gold on him. Well... light brown, anyway that was probably supposed to be gold. :p 

    One thing I will say about the Primo Necrosis kit: as you'll see when the render appears, it has considerably less gold on it than the Nemein kit, and it covers up a huge amount of the gold on the figure. Nemein's colours were chosen to match the toy, y'see, while the colours on Necrosis were chosen to match Black Nova (yep, using that name from now on, too cool not to :p  ) in the comic.

    The gold on Grand Scourge actually works well on Black Novasis Prime, since, as John mentioned, Nova/IDW Nemesis are based on Universe 1 Nemesis Prime. They basically use the Big Convoy head, and Novasis uses the deco, which has some goldish brown.
