    No, it's the Diac mold. Standard voyager Optimus head.

    It could be the SP face on the Diac body, but I doubt it.

    It'll likely be cheaper if you wait for this to pop up on Mandarake.

    Personally I think it's just bad scan lines on the image, the lines are too horizontal

    That makes the most sense. I'm I the only one that remembers the days when scenes like this were "good"?

    Oh, how much I wish I was wrong, but think about convobat and leoprime, they are obviously keen to use the SP head in the leader's role

    It's diac, the lines you see on the image when zooming in are perfectly horizontal, they are scan lines. The lines on infinitus' face plate are angled. Also the titanmaster itself is diac, look at the head

    Hasbro definitely needs to release a good update to RiD2001 Scourge (Nemesis Prime) that is obtainable for a fair price to their market. They let the club have the RtS deluxe OP repaint, which was STUPID IMO. They could make a Nemesis similar enough to this Takara version with a few minor deco differences and maybe the wings/jet nose from Octone (I assume they would be compatible with the Optimus version of the mold). Bundle it with an Arcee made from a repaint of Chromedome (like the unmade G1 concept), maybe a Steeljaw from Stripes and/or Eject from Rewind and some other fluff (random titanmaster repaints) and you have a decent set for a convention (just as long as there are some extra to go to HTS that last a couple months).

    Except those had been in the works since before Diac was really a thing. Infinitus was their stand-in for an OP head. Now that we have a plain OP head, I don't think we'll be seeing much of that mold.

    Cool and as it\'s painted on the fuel tank it is something one can actually play with - with a bit less feat or ruining the stickers. (if there isn\'t any)
