    I would assume that it is as this is from lucky cat's weibo.

    The Shattered Glass (or, as I’d use it, Purple Wicked Convoy) looks excellent.

    I prefer the Metagate as Nemesis Prime, though.

    Yeah, the nemesis looks legit and looks like an actual release. Hopefully they'll announce its release soon.

    The shattered glass one looks like its custom painted though? You can see the paints blurred out in the background. If the final product looks like this im definitely cashing in ahaha

    I just posted yesterday that I would try to pick up Trumpeter Nemesis Prime. :lol 

    These two look awesome. ET-02 is still my figure of the year and I can’t wait for these repaints.

    ET-02B Nemesis Prime is up for preorder on BBB with an expected month of Arrival in September. I hope he comes earlier than that!

    not sure why the lengthy lead time exists for the repaint, the legwork on the engineering of the figure has already been done

    Finally FINALLY got my SECOND replacement part for that stupid matrix chamber part. I'm gonna install it on one of my copies and sell it. Bombusbee packed it extra well this time. I'm grateful for their help.

    Someone on this Discord server I'm in made a size comparison, it should a little shorter than the SS

    Oh yeah that looks good. Dunno why but it looked small with the legends one next to it haha. Im glad itll be a bit smaller so the ss decepticons will look bigger and menacing in my collection.

    I'm seeing some QC issues in this thread, but I assume it's not super widespread. I'm trying to use this as an imperfect judgement for the quality of their CHUG version.

    There’s the arm misassembly issue, that seems to be every copy.

    I haven't had a good experience with this figure. The piece that holds the matrix in is very weak and can easily break if you don't flip the upper torso around perfectly. I got a replacement part and after fixing it, realized that the C clip holding th slower back in had some nasty stress marks, so now it barely stays in. I'm afraid to transform it any more.

    This figure looks a ton better than Metagate, but I hamfisted a transformation on that one so many times with no issues.

    I agree - Lucky Cat is a very nice statue, but Metagate is a much better toy.

    Looks like Nemesis is on his way out now. He's incoming at a couple of different locations.

    Would love to see some more photos, especially that alt mode.
