    Here is a pictorial review of the TF Prime Cyberverse Commander Nightwatch Optimus Prime. This figure shares the same mold as the Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime, so if you have seen the review for that earlier, the articulation etc are the same. In this review, I'll just highlight the differences between this figure and the Cyberverse Optimus Prime.

    This is Nightwatch OP in truck mode:

    And with blade weapons mounted:

    On the left of the picture is the Nightwatch OP and right the is original OP. There is no noticeable difference in the red used but the original OP features a more shiny darker steel like colour on the front and the smoke stacks whereas this Nightwatch OP is just plain matt silver like kind of colour. There is yellow on the headlights for the Nightwatch OP.

    [​IMG]

    There is autobot symbol on right door of the truck of the original OP but none on the nightwatch OP.

    And on the left side of the door, there are autobot symbols on both OPs.

    The Nightwatch OP uses grey colour for the rear of the truck whereas the original OP uses the familiar blue:

    [​IMG]

    In robot mode, the Nightwatch OP uses a darker dull blue for his head and shin, I guess that is why they call it "Nightwatch", whereas for the original OP, he has a much brighter blue. There are some yellow apps on the shin, I guess to break the dull nightwatch blue kind of colour. And of course, for the Nightwatch OP, it features a maskless head sculpt.

    A close up view of the maskless head sculpt:

    Saw earlier from the beginning of this review, the Nightwatch OP has the blades as weapons whereas cannons / guns are for the original OP.

    I think this set is a cool toy, which completes the original cyberverse OP especially with the blade weapons, hence I do recommend it even if you already have the original cyberverse OP. I do like the paint apps better on the original OP compared to this Nightwatch OP though, especially the more shiny and darker steel like silver used for the original OP.

    And here is a picture of OP fighting Dreadwing, and with this set that comes with the blades, we can finally create the sword fight scene with Dreadwing, while Starscream tries to steal the relic.

    Can the swords be held so the blades aren't facing up? I always thought it was odd that, even with the FE Voyager, the blades always seem mounted upside down.

    Yellow eyes? Slightly darker color scheme? Definitely Nemesis.
    Shame he's not being sold as such, it'd be cool to see MECH as a faction in the toyline.

    Also in case you didn't know you can rotate the heads so you can't see the faces in vehicle mode. :)

    Those yellow eyes on the model look plain evil, a bit different deco they could have made this Nemesis.
