    Hell yeah! This mold looks downright sexy in Nemesis colors. Now I'll finally have a Nemesis Prime in my collection!

    Been waiting for this since I saw the original. I don't think that name will stick, too close to the gundam.

    I don't have any nemesis/black repaints of Optimus, so this will be my excuse to buy the mold. Sweet!

    Bought on sight. Done. Seriously.

    Give him a bigger axe, though, or some sort of new weaponry

    For Optimus, I kinda like KBB's MP-10V, but I think this design makes a good Nemesis Prime. Maybe I'll sell Striker and buy this instead...

    Got my Manus, so I'm good. Still, good for the hardcore Nemesis crowd, and for those that needed this mold in these colors to take a chance. Maketoys came up with a winner here and they deserve as much credit for it as possible, and as many TF fans that want to take a shot on this mold should get the opportunity.

    I usually avoid repaints, plus I'm still betting this mold in white plus armor is coming as Ultra Magnus, and I'm still considering it. Such a wonderful figure.

    I admit those colors do this mold a lot of favors.

    Well it would be nice to do a white version but they are already doing an Ultra Magnus

    Me too, I prefer the white Manus/Magnus myself...so definitely a pass on Nemesis. In regard to MT doing UM, I'm not sure I'll pick that version. MT UM design sketch only looks ok to me and having that red thigh color is another turn off for me. So my choice would be a white Striker Manus/Magnus color.
