To be honest, by the time I got this figure this morning, I didn't want it anymore. The reason is Dark Guard Optimus Prime. I wasn't sure if I needed 2 versions of black TFP Primes. But hey, he is here....
Once I got the figure out of the box, my mood was greatly improved. Nemesis Prime has a very nice shade of dark grey. He doesn't look quite black to me.
(sorry about the robot mode not proper.)
He only requires 4 stickers applied according to the instruction. 2 Decepticon insignias and headlights.
More about the stickers later
Arms Micron Giza
I haven't built many Arms Microns, but this one was the simplest of all. Applying blade stickers was tricky as always, but stickers can be reapplied a couple of times if you are careful. Can't do anything about the wrinkles though....
His alt mode is a saw shark (nokogirizame).
weapon mode is a blade. Nice and big! (Comparison with R.A. - Ratchet's Arms Micron)
Now, Nemesis Prime comes with "optional" stickers and they are teal. I do think he looks great without stickers. It's a simple but very effective repaint.
But TEAL stickers. How could I not apply them?
The instruction has suggestions as to where the extra stickers can be applied, and I followed the example.
There was even one to add teal shine to his crotch!
(I peeled it off after taking some photos - I guess I have to draw the line somewhere )
What I have settled with is like this -
My conclusion is, this is a great repaint with very fun optional stickers. I'll add some comparison shots with other black Primes tomorrow. (Unfortunately I don't have my AM1 optimus Prime anymore)

That's actually not a bad idea, using it as a Generations RID Scourge. I might just do that if I feel like the TFCC one doesn't cut it.

Great Photos, but I still maintain if you own RID Scourge & Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime....you have all the "Black Optimus" you need.

*Insert common complaint about lack of paint apps on AM releases*
That said, I think he makes quite a nice looking Scourge. The speckled plastic adds a little something extra to what could have been a boring straight black.

If Takara eliminates the stickers for their 2013 Prime toys I would be one happy camper!! I really hate them in most cases. They are already starting to peel from early figures like Skywarp (whose 'gut' Decepticon symbol is peeling off) and I can just see what will happen with figures who have more stickers than others- peel-o-mania!!
Back on topic. Nemesis Prime here is actually a study in minimalism where stickers are concerned, so it completely works for him to have pretty much none at all. The non-Silas Breakdown is a similar story... the fewer stickers the better. Otherwise, N.P. looks awesome! Not sure I want another of this mold though- even with the cool red window and dark coloring- but time will tell.
