    Armada Nemesis Primes?

    And why are the two on ebay so expensive?

    I never knew Armada had expensive figures... I knew Nemesis was hard to find and whatnot, but expensive? That's almost crazy talk.

    He was really hard to find at the time. He only shipped in the very last deluxe wave, and stores didn't get many of those in. Personally, I never saw one in store, which was a major disappointment at the time. I imagine that rarity is what leads to such high prices.

    He shipped to KB Toys one or two times. I was lucky enough to have my mom think it was Optimus and buy it for me for Christmas.

    i got him at a walmart at the end of armada, and he looked awsome with galaxy force (the golden one) vector prime's sword

    until lil bro broke the part of the arm that connects the two arm parts together, the same way my universe nemisis prime was broken by him

    If you still have it, I'll buy it off of you. Seriously. A repair job can't be that hard.

    I sold mine on the boards about 6 months ago for $12 I think (loose and complete). I got it at TRU in Canada.

    I got mine for $25.00 (I think it was 25) at the 2006 BOTCON. It's my favorite Bot from that haul.

    I think I've tracked at least one down. I just need a reply for either of the people I PMed about it.

    Is it worth buying or not? I have bendy Magnus so I'm not too sure...

    I saw three Nemesis Primes, on separate occasions, at a TRU in Canada when the figures were released at the tail end of Armada. I bought one for myself, left the second and donated the third to a Christmas toy drive. Hopefully that last one went to a good home.

    It is a shame that this is such a rare figure, as it's an excellent display piece and one of my favorite TFs. I currently have mine displayed on my "Heralds of Unicron" shelf, holding the Takara-exclusive Black Hole Energy Axe (from Superlink) and the black Energon Spear released with one of the TFTM07 Target-exclusive Scouts.

    Harder to get. Especially cheap, so it's kind of true...
