    Ehhh, I actually prefer my Alt Nemesis Prime. Mostly for the Red Windows which really remind me of RiD Scourge.

    Nice pics! But they reaffirm, for me, my decision not to drop $300 on the BT. My Alt. Nemmy will do me just fine.

    The red windows make the figure. I too am happy with my Nemmy.

    I think the red Black Convoy tails are actually the correct ones.

    Nice pics. I need to see this thing in person to really appreciate it I think. I think I will still prefer the deco of Nemi Prime to Black Convoy. I really am tempted to switch out parts and make a die-cast Nemesis Prime. I think that would be the best of both worlds.

    Full shoot is now up :) 

    As far as I'm concerned Black Convoy blows Nemmy out of the water, you really have to see them both up close to really appreciate him, the pic's dont do him justice.

    Great shoot. I'm looking forward to receiving my BT-17. Am I seeing things or does Black Convoy seem darker in colour than Nemesis Prime?

    well it is metal. i think metal tends to make colors darker. i wonder of it has any kind of like silver flake in the paint.. haven't looked at the photos too closely.

    the black looks deeper with metal, kewl.

    also, lovin the grey parts.

    that said takara dropped the ball by releasing this so late. if it was like skids, at least itd make you choose between the alt and bt. only for the completist i guess.

    Nice pics, Thanks SWC!! Looking forward to get mine.
    I too think BT has maybe too much gray, but if you have both ALT and BT, different is good :)

    The gray actually isn't as bad as some of the pictures make him out to be. I find the pic's make it come out more as a lighter gray but in person its more of a darker metallic gray.

    Meh. If I were to get one it would definitely be Nemesis Prime. I do like the way the grey breaks up all the black on Black Convoy....but I also like the complete darkness of Nemesis. Plus the red tinted windows look far better than the clear ones. Besides, that ridiculous pricetag on Black Convoy makes it a no brainer.

    We only have the BT-17 Black Convoy version, arrived yesterday, so we can't compare him to the plastic US or Japanese verions. Did you also get the e-Hobby letter and autobot symbols they shipped him with?
