    Call it what you want, I suspect anyone who has an account on this message board has it to some degree.

    Yes please.

    I wish I had photoshop, to do a proper edit with his real hands. Anyone MVP enough to do it?

    @ me if you do. They will make fine additions to my collection, right next to my Bionicle memes.

    A curious question --- what other characters this mold might be repainted into?
    I only know there is a black nemesis prime from Hasbro, but that just includes the truck without the trailer, right?

    I never watched Armada, so not too interested in this original colour scheme, in fact I think it's kind of ugly as shown in the below screenshot... however I might be interested if it's repainted to something else.

    Not another character, but you'll certainly get your non-standard colors repaint. There isn't an Armada fan out there that doesn't want him in his Mortal Combat colors.

    This colorscheme is iconic to Armada fans. Aside from being an homage to Optimus Primal, it perfectly expresses his character's dark state at the time, where he accepts the Cybertronian condition and his hunger for battle, and discards the Matrix to attempt to prove he doesn't need its influence to do the right thing, yet it's Megatron who chooses to fall to end their rivalry so Unicron can't feed off it. Prime was fucking vicious in his final battle with Megatron, not to mention he just looks absolutely metal.

    Thank you for the reply, so likely we will have this repaint from FH then...I will wait for this then.
    How is this "Mortal Combat colors" different than the nemesis prime colour? Seems the base colour scheme in both are black.

    These are 'power up colours' he got in the second half of the toyline/anime. Same time as the traditional Megatron-to-Galvatron repaint. It's not Nemesis because it's got no teal.

    If you notice, the toy and anime have a good number of differences too, namely the mouthplate and grill. I'd love to see which they opt for if they do this. Or see em all with Photoshop. Seth Sundey in this thread by chance? I know I spelt that name wrong sorry

    Yes I noticed. Also on this pic you posted, the mouth plate postion seems weird, is this a PS colour?
