TFW Transformers Prime Nemesis Prime Gallery

Today we are proud to share with you one of our latest Transformers Toy Galleries. Today's spotlight falls on Transformers Prime Arms Micron Nemesis Prime. Nemesis Prime is a false copy of Optimus Prime created by the human villains of Transformers Prime, MECH, and operated by their leader Silas. In the show, Nemesis Prime sported a darker and duller version of Optimus Prime's deco, but for Nemesis Prime the toy, black is the order of the day. Yes, Nemesis Prime is a full-on black repaint, with clear red plastic for the clear parts. He looks very striking in this deco. Out of the box the majority of the toy's stickers are optional ones to give the toy some teal detailing. It's a case where stickers work really well as it allows for a greater degree of customisation.

Nemesis Prime comes with the Arms Micron Giza, a swordfish who turns into a version of Optimus Prime's sword, and goes well with the Nemesis Prime design. It is fairly easy to assemble and features a nice selection of pegs to form larger combination weapons.

Overall, Nemesis Prime is not one for someone seeking show accuracy, but he is extremely fun, and has a nice striking deco. If you are a fan of black repaints, this is one for you.

The easy solution, use this guy as Generations RID SCOURGE! That's what I'm doing! Since I didn't buy the Club RID Scourge repaint of RTS G2 Prime...

Plus this one in alt mode and articulation...it's kind of a match for RTS G2 Prime..

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.
deliciouspeter
Wow! Great photos. Looks great.
Kaijumaster
Great Photos, but I still maintain if you own RID Scourge & Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime....you have all the "Black Optimus" you need.
TFPrime
Can't wait for mine..and I'm definitely going full color crotch.
alfred p. sloan
im not into black Primes but this one looks great!
Thelonicon
*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.

Those stickers quality is terrible...

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.

Im realy thinking about replacing some parts w Voy Optimus...

The thighs, feet, hands, arms and truck grill pieces...

Let me see how may pins are in the way...


Hmmm...
Deceptigtar
cant wait to get mine. when i heard about the stickers i was excited even more because as is i was kind of let down.

i do however wish this was the gold and black and the nemesis was the exclusive FE mold.
mooncake623
might have to cancel my Club scourge with BBTS. I shall see when i ship my loot
Enigma2K2
Not being a fan of that version of the Prime mold, at least he comes with better weapons and a good color.
Prime Jetscream
Okay, I'm getting this.
I've been looking for an excuse to get this mold without just getting another Optimus.
GAUGE
The peg holes all over the place really kill it for me.

Would look so much better without them IMO
OCProwl
I was planning to pass on this but he looks pretty tight actually. I would leave off the teal stickers, personally I think he looks more bad-ass in near black/dark grey. Not to mention it's show accurate that way since Silas's Prime was very monochromatic.
Wazdakka
I don't know... how not-black/grey is it?

You don't really notice the holes much when you have it in hand. So much so that I have to look twice sometimes to see if I've picked up a Hasbro or Takara Optimus.

And having the holes is often very handy - the holes on his back allow you to store a sword on his back. and the ones on his arms make good mounts for cannons like B2. It even allows you to store a gun on his hip using the leg post.

The holes are also useful when combining Optimus/nemesis with Unicron.
power3921
I kind of really want that now.
Kantus Prime
If he had more of a role than a tool at M.E.C.H's disposal, I would be all over this. However I do enjoy this figure, he looks great.
Galaxy Convoy
Man, now that is slick looking. But uh, Syd, did you intentionally skip the left shoulder teal decal? Looks like you may have had some trouble with the right shoulder one. It looks partially peeled off and then reapplied unless I'm looking at it wrong?

The stickers are crappy anyway, so I would be surprised if a sticker needed readjusting.
Shatterpoint
I am seriously considering dropping my preorder on TFCC Scourge because of this guy.
TFPrimeReborn
Still in box and can not bear to take him out. Really love this figure and putting him side by side with PRID Prime look great!
Stepper
Wow,the optional sticker look great

The left shoulder sticker is there. I think it's not showing in the photos very well, sorry about that >_<;
I did place the stickers on different spots initially, and peeled them off to stick them on the "correct" spots, so you are right about them looking reused

and I'm really bad at applying them to begin with. I love applying those stickers but don't have the skill

Guess it would be nitpicking to point out he should have a Autobot symbol and not Decepticon because he was pretending to be Optimus Prime.
Dinodigger97
He looks good, even with the robo-package sticker attached. Him and Monocole Breakdown are totally bought.
NemiMonkey
I didn't want him before, but things like this are making it pretty darn hard to resist. Plus that teal crotch
Powersa
Nice pics and review. Still a pass, for now at least. I don't like the mold, those red arms look ridiculous.
Jacer
This guy looks epic! hurry up payday!
Rod
Picked him at TRU yesterday. Not thirilled with him, but Im looking forward to seeing what reprolables comes up with
Pravus Prime
I had it on pre-order and then dropped it when the first pictures came out. Though the teal stickers do help a lot, I think I'm just going to pay a bit more and get the Dark Guard Optimus Prime instead.

I love that almost Black Big Convoy colorscheme/vibe the Dark Guard has, plus it'll differentiate between the many other black/teal/red Primes on the Black redeco shelves combined with not enough of a price difference right now between that and the Nemesis, along with all the people who laud the FE mold, it's obvious which one I'll go for.
Composite Ghost
Now I think I need two.
Deceptigtar
got mine today and love it. micron is awesome and one of the best out there. teal stickers make the difference. sure its not the FE mold but i can deal with it.
viper2391
Got mine and I really like it. I don't like the mold that's why I did not buy the Red version of this but this black is so good-looking and the red translucent parts in the arms are really what makes this stand-out.

can someone take a pic of silas breakdown and nemesis together with silas and mech soldier?

but heres some shots of NP:

I'm really impressed by this however it's not really that show accurate to the show. I'm thinking I could just get the regular RID Optimus and paint him how he really was in the show but this looks so amazing it's so hard to choose!

i like it this way. unless you actually take a prime and paint for show accuracy, i dont think one done by takara would look good.

in the show he was so distressed and weathered and a toy version would just look like another prime with muted colors and some con symbols.

I don't have other figures you mentioned, but it's a great idea. I know someone who might have them all

Deceptigtar, nice pics. You always make your cons look so menacing.
grandizerGo
thanks for the sweet pics..think im picking this badboy up now and do a silver dry brush on him..
GrimlockAutobot
Dammit SydneyY and Deceptigar I HATE the RiD Optimus Prime mold but your pics made me really want this figure..lol

Now, I wonder who that might be I'll see what I can whip up, hehe! (EDIT: or not. Looks like I'll need to get an exchange on my Silasdown, he's missing a wheel.)

I just got mine yesterday, and he's a nice toy. I absolutely love the deco! Very striking and menacing, it makes for a great black repaint. I actually left off all but the headlight stickers because I liked him so much "plain". This is the first time I've owned the Voyager Prime mold, and it impressed me with how it does a few things differently compared to the FE Voyager. It's good, I really like it, and the fact that - to me - it is a new mold makes it all the more worth while.
[Wing_Saber-X]
Excellent pics, Syd! Loving those teal stickers option. makes the black less dull.
zannus
I gotta say, my opinion has changed and I think I may have to pick this guy up, especially since I don't have the mold anyway.
BlueAngel_Bolt
I got mine last night. I think i'll keep the teal stickers off, though. The plain colors remind me of Dark Link from Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Necro Prime
I find him beautiful! And I really like the shots with the Unicron armor. Finally, a use for that third Unicron mode involving the Prime mold. (no matter how wonky it looks...)

Join the club of having no 'sticker' sense!
anyway, Syd, your pics are wonderful as usual and the last one is just so awesome.
