    Yeah I noticed the handle thing too. It's also funny because if you look at them, the one with the hand is longer. Looks like they just took the sculpting of the non hand one, cut it in half, added a blank grey pole in between and added a hand over it

    Thank you. I couldn't find a post but I must've half remembered it because I immediately set about trying to remove the handles when I got him - couldn't remember for sure if there had been confirmation before. I did remember your blade coming loose though - glad that worked out for you. And I remember you talking about the chrome markers - they still holding up pretty well? I've got them on my amazon list but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    A big scuffed since sometimes I get a bit careless, haha.
    But still looking good!
    Sufficiently reflective.

    So recently I've developed an affinity for Primes with yellow eyes. I think TFP Optimus can rock it pretty nicely.

    I still find it surreal that my first Optimus prime figure was tfp Nemi prime lol.

    Yeah looks like it's a blend of traditional nemesis and the tfp version.

    Not super fond of nemesis decos (besides the tfp and tlk ones, obscenely hot takes ik) but I'll grab this if it's on heavy clearance. This figure is a little expensive to justify double dipping, although it would be fun to try to either mod it as Magnus or repaint it as Silas prime

    See the paint is very sleek and edgy with the eyes, its just not nemesis prime as depicted in the show. The set up was right there. He looks like what a mad terrorist leader would make from a truck found in a scrapyard and military hardware.

    I'm getting their normal prime at some point, but I'm leaving out this nemesis unless I feel brave enough to mod him at that price with a proper paintjob.

    But if there was a way to mod miniguns to the shoulders and a battleaxe as a hand accessory, that could be a project in its own right.

    Man I like the look of the Nemesis version a good bit, but I don't think that it is something that I need. I might be more tempted if the colors were show accurate Nemesis colors, although the classic nemesis colors do look great on this!

    Hmm, actually I won't be too hard on this redeco since the toyline actually did have a traditional colored Nemesis Prime.
    IMG_8704.png Just needs that extra bit of color on the shoulders and forearms to be the "superior" version of it.

    I've seen that TFSafari has him up for pre-order, but other joints that have him are from places like eBay and AliExpress. Which area valid, but like any other online service, you gotta check if the seller's reliable.

    My larger version of this guy had a good run until my cat knocked him off the computer desk. He's an amputee now.
