    They should make it a joint pre-order with a second run of Orion that's actually red and perhaps has a side silver stripe on it..

    Never got Orion since I wasn't all that impressed with the coloring and the retail distribution was kind of shitty in my experience, but I might just have to bite on this. Though I do hope to see an improved second run of Orion as well.

    Not to sound argumentative at all, but what 'issues' are you referring to? I have Orion, and I love him. He's kind of a bitch to transform, but I'm a fan of complex figures.

    I don't have the figure, but I have heard of stress issues regarding particular flaps.

    Hmm... haven't seen any of that yet, mine seems really sturdy and has great materials. But it's good to know, so I can keep it in mind when I transform him. Thanks.

    Called that one. I wonder if this is means there is still hope of getting an Original Orion at a better price. Maybe the next run will have better colors?

    These colors really really really bring out the detailing on this mold.
    Orion is my favorite piece in my collection... This trumps Orion.
    Totally a must buy... Wow.

    Best nemesis prime I've ever seen.

    It would have been great if that axe had come with Orion.

    I did not like Orion at all. Something was just off on it. Didn't help that I just got mp-10 at the time of its release.

    It's hard to believe this is the same exact mold. I really like this and might just purchase.

    I'm shocked.

    Man I'm kinda annoyed that this repaint gets an axe and the original didn't. Any one looking to sell their axe and make a couple bucks let me know.

    I'm not a Nemesis Prime (or Scourge) fan by any means but this looks pretty damn cool. The addition of the energon axe accessory is a nice touch too.
