    That is hands-down the SICKEST nemesis i have seen to date. at first i see prime all scuffed and burned, and i was like "i'm not feelin this", but then i see it painted, and im all "i see it now", and it is just BEAUTIFUL. you have re-inspired me to finish my customs.

    Thanks man!! It's always night and day from a stock ready to paint figure and the actual painted figure. This one is still not done yet. I need to do a full figure app still to bring out all of his damages which can't really be seen yet. I want this Nemesis to represent not only his evil character, but hard core battle effects.

    That is amazing, I regret not picking up extra WFC figures when they were cheap. I love how the damages turned out after the paint was applied.

    Yeah, at first I saw the OP all scratched and thought "This guy just gave his Prime to the cat." Then I saw it painted and went back in time and slapped myself for thinking badly about this figure. EPIC AWESOME JOB MAN!

    Thanks Roxxstar, by the way, you can still get them cheap! I got 2 of them this past week for under $12 each at Target.

    I wanted my version of Nemesis to be different then the others I've seen done before mine and focusing on the damage aspect of this one is doing it so far :) 

    Although I do like the UV paints and the effect they give, I haven't done any yet and this one doesn't have any planned for it. I'd like to do at least a WFC Optimus Prime within a couple months with the UV paint.

    Thanks Dave, I hope it does!

    Well, I got a sword for him instead. I think you'll like it better then the axe Bruce! :D 

    Thanks man!

    !!! My Local Targets ( and those a drive off) have all hiked the price to 11.99, and seem to only have wave 3 upward, which never seems to at least include a Soundwave. I'll have to nab 'em off the 'bay once my wife calms down about how much I spent on the hobby this last 3 months...

    How do you protect matte black paint without putting a clear over it which obviously will ruin the matte effect?

    Much appreciations man!

    You can either use satin/flat clear coat or don't coat it at all and just use strong paints like lacquer or enamel.
