    To be honest, by the time I got this figure this morning, I didn't want it anymore. The reason is Dark Guard Optimus Prime. I wasn't sure if I needed 2 versions of black TFP Primes. But hey, he is here....

    Once I got the figure out of the box, my mood was greatly improved. Nemesis Prime has a very nice shade of dark grey. He doesn't look quite black to me.

    He only requires 4 stickers applied according to the instruction. 2 Decepticon insignias and headlights.

    More about the stickers later :)

    I haven't built many Arms Microns, but this one was the simplest of all. Applying blade stickers was tricky as always, but stickers can be reapplied a couple of times if you are careful. Can't do anything about the wrinkles though....

    His alt mode is a saw shark (nokogirizame).

    weapon mode is a blade. Nice and big! (Comparison with R.A. - Ratchet's Arms Micron)

    Now, Nemesis Prime comes with "optional" stickers and they are teal. I do think he looks great without stickers. It's a simple but very effective repaint.


    But TEAL stickers. How could I not apply them?

    [​IMG]

    The instruction has suggestions as to where the extra stickers can be applied, and I followed the example.

    There was even one to add teal shine to his crotch!

    (I peeled it off after taking some photos - I guess I have to draw the line somewhere :lol )

    What I have settled with is like this -
    [​IMG]

    My conclusion is, this is a great repaint with very fun optional stickers. I'll add some comparison shots with other black Primes tomorrow. (Unfortunately I don't have my AM1 optimus Prime anymore)

    The easy solution, use this guy as Generations RID SCOURGE! That's what I'm doing! Since I didn't buy the Club RID Scourge repaint of RTS G2 Prime...

    Plus this one in alt mode and articulation...it's kind of a match for RTS G2 Prime..

    That's actually not a bad idea, using it as a Generations RID Scourge. I might just do that if I feel like the TFCC one doesn't cut it. :)

    Great Photos, but I still maintain if you own RID Scourge & Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime....you have all the "Black Optimus" you need.

    *Insert common complaint about lack of paint apps on AM releases*

    That said, I think he makes quite a nice looking Scourge. The speckled plastic adds a little something extra to what could have been a boring straight black.

    If Takara eliminates the stickers for their 2013 Prime toys I would be one happy camper!! I really hate them in most cases. They are already starting to peel from early figures like Skywarp (whose 'gut' Decepticon symbol is peeling off) and I can just see what will happen with figures who have more stickers than others- peel-o-mania!!

    Back on topic. Nemesis Prime here is actually a study in minimalism where stickers are concerned, so it completely works for him to have pretty much none at all. The non-Silas Breakdown is a similar story... the fewer stickers the better. Otherwise, N.P. looks awesome! Not sure I want another of this mold though- even with the cool red window and dark coloring- but time will tell.

    cant wait to get mine. when i heard about the stickers i was excited even more because as is i was kind of let down.

    i do however wish this was the gold and black and the nemesis was the exclusive FE mold.

    Not being a fan of that version of the Prime mold, at least he comes with better weapons and a good color.

    Okay, I'm getting this.
    I've been looking for an excuse to get this mold without just getting another Optimus.

    The peg holes all over the place really kill it for me. :( 

    Would look so much better without them IMO

    I was planning to pass on this but he looks pretty tight actually. I would leave off the teal stickers, personally I think he looks more bad-ass in near black/dark grey.
    Not to mention it's show accurate that way since Silas's Prime was very monochromatic.

    You don't really notice the holes much when you have it in hand. So much so that I have to look twice sometimes to see if I've picked up a Hasbro or Takara Optimus.

    And having the holes is often very handy - the holes on his back allow you to store a sword on his back. and the ones on his arms make good mounts for cannons like B2. It even allows you to store a gun on his hip using the leg post.

    The holes are also useful when combining Optimus/nemesis with Unicron.
