    I've seen some various different opinions of what Nemesis Prime's color scheme is so I just wanted to get a poll up to see what the majority of people saw in the episode. I'm color blind myself so my own opinion can't really be trusted. I don't know who to trust here sense people are all seeing totally different color schemes.

    The only thing people seem to agree on is that his optics are yellow.

    We all know Optimus is Red and Blue so Nemesis Prime's colors will be posted respectively to that color scheme. This means that the first color you say is always equal to Optimus' Red and the second color is always equal to Optimus' Blue.

    The 4 poll options are the different color schemes I've already seen people say they saw. If you vote other please specify what you saw that isn't already in the poll.

    BTW the Burgundy and Black option is from my dad so I don't know if that will actually be getting any votes here. Black and Black is just what I saw. The other two options are from other members of the boards who I hope will put their votes in here.

    Please make sure to vote in the poll. It makes it much easier to keep track of the various opinions that having to read threw all the posts of who agrees with who.

    Hey. Sorry to hear you're color blind. Hope to know you are okay with that.
    Anyway, I think Nemesis Prime's color scheme is somewhat red/black/blue. Seems like it atleast. Nemesis Prime is seen in different lighting situations throughout the episode, so it's really hard to tell.

    Well that's a new one and you stated 3 colors instead of two so where does the 3rd color come in? Oh and please vote in the poll, I put that up there to make it easier to keep track of the various different opinions.

    And yeah, it's annoying some times but I manage to get around it.

    It's a purple, black and yellow highlights covered with dirt and scratches. He looks similar to Shattered Glass Prime's colour scheme.

    I thought he was dark red in the trailer. Maybe I just did not see it correctly.


    But in the episode he is definitely purple, black and yellow highlights.

    I'm thinking I should have put this up as an option too. There's apparently a repaint of Bot Shots Optimus Prime called Nemesis Prime which is Black and Blue.

    I don't think this guy is really painted correctly though sense his eyes are incorrectly colored red.

    Dull red and blue imo, he looked almost all grey and black at night though.

    It's a very dull red and faded blue. However in a well lit scene, there was a hint of purple to the red.

    I checked the episode again for day and night. He's purple. Only when he's attacking Fowler he seems to look dull red. Rest of the episode he's purple.

    Purple, burgundy, dull red - it's all just another way of saying "a darkened, muted version of Optimus Prime's colours."

    He looked dull red and blue in the preview, but in the actual episode he looked more black and gray

    Well, it took me a while to figure out how to do it but I created this image of a darkened muted version of Optimus Prime's colors. I had to actually create a two layered image with one layer being made black and white while a colored layer sat on top of it, change the occupancy to 50% and set the blend to darken and this is what comes out. It looks fairly close to how Nemesis Prime looks to me, don't know how close it actually is but it's defiantly as you said darkened and muted. No purple on it, just really dark red and really dark blue which to me looks like black and black.

    He has so much rust and then the chipped paint/bare metal effect going on makes it tough to judge. It's close to a maroon color for the red and the blue is a bit darker.

    I still think it's red/blue/black, the black being some parts of his body.

    This episode was a missed opportunity for a G1 reference.
