    I'm adding that to my very long list of things to draw later.

    Huh, I'm not sure. Thinking on it I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen more "Nemesis Magnus" figures out there. The only one I can think of off the top of my head was that add-on kit for Classics / Universe Nemesis Prime.

    Nah. That would just add yet another obligatory lazy repaint to every Optimus figure to come out from now until the end of time.

    Isn’t Barricade the closest thing to Nemesis Prowl? Or do people want something different?

    Personally really dislike how Barricade is just a prowl repaint now.

    Eh. I don’t mind. But I do like when he is his own mold. The design he had in TLK is a cool design. I prefer that over his design in the first movie.

    I don’t like Barricade just being a repaint of Prowl, but his evergreen design is way worse to me. Everything about him is just so basic and humanoid and rounded. His 2007 design is what should have been adapted.

    Eh personally Barricade is one of the few evergreen designs I like because he has a Pontiac grill

    I know, right? G1 Barricade has nothing to do with police whatsoever! He's a race car!

    And as a RiD Scourge fan, I find the whole "Nemesis" naming convention rather dumb and unimaginative. Especially for an evil black Optimus repaint.

    This guy's more badass than any "Nemesis"!

    The first half of this post is facetious. The second half is not. I'm not a fan of evil black recolors unless there's an actual character behind them, and that includes a decent name. "Nemesis X" is just incredibly lazy.

    Yeah, it's a bummer. Unfortunately, there are only 2 black UM in existing, WST G1 UM from Heerotoymaker and the RID UM Lucky Draw.
    I manage to get the WST G1 UM! Well done by Heero in both QC and material especially at that teeny tiny scale to remind me of the 86 UM toy!!

    I always thought of an Anti Magnus as an infiltrator in disguise. I remember along time ago seeing a comic that, if I recall correctly, featured Fansproject Powered Commander speaking to another Autobot. After said Autobot left, Powered Commander removed his armor and it was revealed to be either Shattered Glass or Nemesis Prime underneath. I tried to find that comic but couldn't. But that is what I picture a Nemesis Magnus looking like. Delta Magnus on the outside but inside is a darker innerbot with a skull like face similar to the Botcon 2012 SG Ultra Magnus face sculpt.

    Scourge is pretty great, but I'd argue the Universe Nemesis Prime is just as cool and interesting.

    For toys, there are way too many black repaints.

    For characterization, we have Scourge and Motormaster to serve the role of Ultra Magnus's evil counterpart (and from there, all three have served as counterparts to Optimus, so that's borderline redundant).

    Can't we just have them retcon Piss Magnus as Nemesis Magnus? Especially if it gives us a modern version of it?
