    edit: Oops. Called it Prime instead of Gorira in the title. Can a mod fix?

    Not really something I want but does the blue Prime head look a little out of place to anyone else? Seems like it should be black or grey.
    Edit:
    as others pointed out, this is more of a Season 1 Primal deco than a traditional Nemesis repaint.
    The blue head works well as Primal.
    Nemesis? Go with a black head and grey and red highlights.
    Confusing name is confusing.

    Well the idea seems to be to give him season 1 colors so the blue head makes sense for that. But I'm not sure why they've referred to it as nemesis when its clearly not a nemesis deco.

    They're calling it a "Nemesis prime" when it's works pretty well as Optimus Primal colors

    Clearly Optimus Primal.

    If they still wanted to do a Nemesis Deco though they could up the dark grey - maybe give it Turquise legs and add some metallic Green and Metallic Purple and a black robot head. They might have been better off calling this Shadow Goriria. There is the Black Robotmasters Beast Convoy deco they could use too - G1 Megatron colours might work too perhaps with a Black head shaped like Megatron not Prime's.

    That said I see the Black POTP Optimal Optimus Primal as some sort of kig or dictator so if you bear that in mind it still works as a bad guy.

    My Fav deco for this sort of mould is the Primal Prime colours though.

    i hate quoting wiki's but it sounds like power went to his head and he became a duche so maybe thats why they're calling him nemesis
    Throne of the Primes - Transformers Wiki
    "After being chosen as Cybertron's next leader by the Matrix of Leadership, Optimus Primal sits upon the Throne of the Primes whenever he has to pull rank in the most grandiose and overbearing of ways."

    I love this mold but I don't know if I can justify buying this repaint.

    Likewise, but who am I kidding insta preordered. Triple dipping on this mold. 2019 is shaping up to be the year of prime.

    Looks cool, but it isn't for me. Maybe they'll push out another set of Jrs to go with this. Red would be cool.

    If nothing else, it's cool to see PE doing another deco - might get a third color out of Megatron, too (presuming they do Cryotek). Either TM purple and gold or original recipe purple w/green accents would look awesome

    This color scheme doesn’t work quite as well on this mold as it does on POTP Optimal.

    Why would it be black or grey? It's supposed to be blue.

    You are all hesitant, but wait till they do a purple dragon Megatron.

    Purple Megatron would pair off well with Primal Primal though, so that's not a stretch like this one is.
