    Ahh it's all good cause as Everyone knows a black prime is Nemesis Prime and not Scourge... I jest... Hasbro should have been more creative when picking a name for the black prime but they were not and as such should of stuck with it alas they did not. Besides, it makes for some intresting conversations to read while on the board.

    LOL some people take things way to seriously sometimes... Just wait until Hasbro releases a pink BB for the dotm line and call it Nemesis BB instead of play time laserbeak lol... I can hear it now. Yea the individuals who own the mold can rename it whatever they want but fact is it's a generation gap and nothing is going to fix that...

    The thing is, Scourge came out before Nemesis Prime was even conceived of. It could have been worse though, his name was originally planned to be Mega-Octane, until they switched it at the last minute :p

    think about it.

    The show/character and the character originated in Japan and predates the Armada Nemesis Prime by a few years..In Japan his name is BLACK CONVOY,

    Convoy is [was then anyway] their name for Optimus Prime

    Black, in this case, is a Japanese euphemism for Evil or Bad guy version of a particular character.

    In other words, a Nemesis

    Which means his conceptual name is "Black Optimus Prime" or Nemesis Optimus Prime.

    thank you very much

    Calling him "Nemesis Prime" works better for me because it's a direct parallel to Optimus' name. "Scourge" is nothing but a nameslap.

    You know, I used to care... But let's face it.. Latey they are reallly just lazy Black Optimus Prime repaint #700,346,183 and that's the only reason for any of them to exist in any storyline after RID.

    Personally, I review it case by case.
    The black repaint of Reveal the Sheild G2 prime I see as a classics update of RID Scourge, where as a black repaint of classics voyager prime I would consider as Nemisis Prime. Just my opinion.

    Valid Point Sto!
