    Newage really takes the extra step with their box art game.

    now I need to decide which evil prime I want before convincing myself to get both

    Bingo - I knew that "Official Seal" in the bottom right corner looked familiar! And it's in keeping with other NA boxes like Galvatron.

    Keep in mind that Nemesis Prime's sword was changed from silver to translucent red!

    Nemesis looks great

    but why on earth did they change the front skirt from the one on Optimus

    genuinely the sole reason I have no interest in buying it

    Possibly as it's been updated to "Incoming" on their stock update page.

    They switched the legs over to the Magnus mold for some reason - I think it has a lower parts count than the Op legs. Even has the indents in the thighs that I don't think are present on the Op version. The skirt goes along with that - Not entirely sure for the reason for the switch outside of the engineering and parts being simpler.

    White Prime has the other hip skirt

    its just a bizarre choice because literally no other aspect of the figure outside of maybe the sword is stylized like that

    Oh, yeah, huh. I didn't notice that - Both Nemesis and SG have that novel waist skirt. I like it, but I can see how it'd put you off.

    I think I found out why. Shattered glass prime was molded with an angry head and earthrise prime styled hipskirt. Nemesis reused the nemesis mold to reduce costs.

    Am I correct to assume that Nemesis Prime and SG Optimus Prime come without the trailer unlike Optimus Prime?

    Considering how their price is much lower than Prime himself I'd say that is a very good bet.
