    Fun fact: it actually started in BWII with Black Lio Convoy who was Lio Convoy's clone in show and continued with Black Big Convoy in BW Neo. While of course neither of those is an Optimus Prime proper they WERE the first to pull that trend. Car Robots Black Convoy COULD be seen as the first to pull that move from an actual Optimus but on the flip side the way he debuted had him alongside a Convoy in a totally different mold. Armada's Nemesis Prime was the first time a proper Optimus Prime had a dark lookalike in the same body (with Takara's version being actually black). There's also, of course the black redeco of Takara's reissue of Convoy in 2000. So it's all a matter of how you look at it.
    I personally tend to credit Armada's Nemesis simply because Scourge/Black Convoy has remained a single character who's redecos are all specifically G2 or G2 based molds of Optimus whereas since Armada near every other Optimus has had a Nemesis Prime of some sort (and without Scourge's trademark teal more often than not).

    Look, I know this isn't classy.... but c'mon. I can't be the only one who sees it right? Hint: it's a news network..... ;) 

    Also, you're right! That is indeed an interesting fact.

    If anyone wants to meet up at Wonderfestival, pm me.

    As for that Nemesis Grimlock, I recommend it. If you think of the strange aesthetic as being a twisted, evil form of Grimlock in the G1 universe, it looks really great. The use of matte and gloss black is nice, too. I bought one when it first came out and liked it so much, I bought a KO version that I added a few touch ups to.

    Do these kinds of exclusives ever make it to TT mall or places like BBTS?

    ^Sometimes. I was wondering, does anyone know which version of Black Convoy that is? If it's the G2 Scourge style, I really wanna grab it and Evasion...

    I've been told my family and I have to go to dinner that Saturday. Hopefully I will be back by the time WonderFest starts.

    Usually at these events, it's limited to 2 of each item, per person. However, as this seems almost like liquidation-esque stock, who knows?

    I\'m in the camp that thinks this was the best figure of movie Grimlock Hasbro has produced(until the studio or mpm version that is) and this looks like a neat repaint but not one I would have to have.
