Man that is probably one of the coolest displays I've ever seen. The mirroring appears to be flawless. D-Max, are you going to try and reproduce this ;)

Is there a story with Nemesis Prime in the back? Or just an old release that looks cool being the dark overlord that brought together these two worlds clashing?

Very nice display!

Nemesis Prime creates a split (or shatter) in the universe (Multiverse? Polyverse? Omniverse?), while Optimus Prime holds the key to Vector Sigma and SG Prime angrily holds his empty hand in the air in an attempt to mirror him?

Heh, in a roundabout way, SG Nova Prime kinda works as a SG Nemesis.

In IDW, Nova Prime was a crooked Prime who went all evil and became Nemesis Prime, a complete antithesis to the virtuous Optimus Prime. Conversely, SG Optimus was already a Nemesis-esque evil Prime, but then got reformatted into a good SG Nova Prime, becoming a complete antithesis of his former self. So the guy who was already like Nemesis gets turned into Nova instead of vice-versa. And what's even more backwards about this is the antithetical Prime not being a clone of the original, instead being the original genuine article, as the general concept of a guy being cloned is thus inverted by not being cloned. 8-}

Masterpiece Shattered Glass Optimus Prime Review

Postby D-Maximus_Prime » Mon Dec 12, 2016 3:25 pm

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
That's right folks, it's time! Fresh off the delivery truck, we bring to you our latest Seibertron.com review: Masterpiece Shattered Glass Optimus Prime! Shattered Glass Prime is a redeco of the original MP-10 Optimus Prime mold and is based on his Shattered Glass self, as seen in his 2008 Botcon toy and in the Fun Publications comics. He is the first of the Masterpiece Shattered Glass characters, and we are set to take a good look at him below!

Included in this review is that heroic Autobot we all know and love, Cliffjumper, who had the misfortune of meeting up with Shattered Prime. He will be used for comparisons, as well as a little fun right at the end.

Firstly, we'll take a quick look at the box, as it features some really awesome artwork of Prime gunning down some poor soul, along with a bio introducing us to this Shattered Prime.

Image

Image

Next up, we will start off with the Truck mode. The truck mode is your standard cab-over that we are all used to, but it has some very nice detailing for the shattered glass version. Shattered Prime's twisted phrase of "Till all are gone!" is printed nicely on the left side right above the drivers door, and it stands out really nice. The silver stripe helps break up the marvelous purple cab nicely along with the side view mirrors.

There are also some very nice green highlights where the roof lights and headlights are, and they stand out against that purple, along with the yellow windows. The broken passenger side window is a nice touch too.

At first, I wasn't too sure about the dull gray used for the grill and smokestacks, but you know what: it works. That muted color gives him a nice "dark" vibe, fitting for the Shattered destructor. The blue used for his legs/back part of the truck is also really cool, and it really stands out with the gray used.

Overall, we have a really strong truck mode that ticks all the boxes save "chrome" but Nemesis Prime covers that better than this guy would have.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Up next, we'll look at that marvelous trailer. Now, Shattered Prime only ever had a trailer in a single lithograph. He never had one in the comics or with any previous toy. This figure, however, decides to include one, and it is a trailer that I really do like.

The trailer itself is cast in a nice rich black color. It is so rich, you can see my reflection taking some of the pictures in it below. The trailer then has a deep purple set of stripes running down the side, the purple of which is beautiful and stands in shining contrast to the black. The giant purple Autobot symbols also really stand out and make the outside of this trailer really pop.

Lest we forget, this trailer, along with the actual figure, have nice chrome wheel rims, and they all stand out so well. That is part of what is making this figure so awesome: the colors all mesh and pop so well, no matter where you go! The underneath part of the trailer uses that same gray that Prime uses for the grill, and it works. Had they cast this in chrome, this trailer would work great for Nemesis Prime as well.

Take a peak!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As this is the first Masterpiece I have ever handled, he feels really big and heavy. There is some good weight to guy! The Transformation is also a blast and a half, with some small bits but so many large bits that flip around in genius style. Definitely one of the best transformations I have ever handled.

And then, we get to the robot mode. Geeze oh man, does this guy rock in robot mode! All the gray is now given the chance to shine, and it does so wonderfully, contrasting against that purple and dark blue and bringing the whole figure together. The yellow windows now seem so muted against that purple, but it only helps bring out the evil in the guy. His new dark helmet and red eyes are also pretty sweet, though I wish they could have made the head a little bit more sinister.

Image

Image

Image

Image

While we're at it, let's get that trailer standing up! The trailer unfolds as the original did, but it feel so much more sinister and cool looking in black and grey, with some silver and dark blue in there to break it all up. The combat deck stands up and the little cockpit area, complete with evil green glass, folds out. This thing looks so goofily hardcore and awesome. I am very glad they included it in the set.

Plus, given how often he gets into fights, Prime needs that repair bay a good bit I'm guessing.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As you can see inside the trailer, there are some accessories that we need to take a look at. First up is the Matrix he comes with, which is die cast and it feels marvelous. The silver, gold, and rich blue center make this matrix a beauty to behold, as seen with some natural light shining through below.

He also contains 2 weapons: his ion blaster and evil ax. The blaster is cast in that gray that Prime's thighs and grill are cast in, and even has a little silver paint in the back. This, along with the head, are the 2 parts that I am a bit disappointed in, as the blaster feels a bit too dull, like they could have done a bit more to it and made it pop more.

Now the ax, that thing is a winner. The green is the same as the canopy on the combat deck, and it really does shine. The shade of green screams "evil" and it is so big and bad looking that I am keeping it on his hand almost all the time. It is perfect weapon that Prime never used but always needed.

Check these things out!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Also to add, we have a size comparison with ole Classics Cliffjumper, along with a slightly different pose of Prime with all his gear:
Image

Image

In conclusion, I love this guy. As my first Masterpiece, he is a joy to behold and own, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who may be interested. Shattered Glass is a special and unique part of the Transformers we love, and hopefully this guy is an indication that there are more Shattered Masterpieces headed out way. He is outstanding and is worthy of being a masterpiece.

Score:
