I think that's just the Hasbro version of Starscream. The shoulder sticker is in the style of those on Hasbro's figures rather than those on Takara's figures.

Man, the Windblade mold is so nice, but Hasbro's paint job (or lack thereof) makes it look so bad, and I don't have the money for the Takara... :BANG_HEAD:

You're absolutely right; I saw it right after Nemesis and Windblade on the twitter account and jumped on it :HEADHURTS: I'll fix it right away.

Yeah, I have the tru exclusive version, it's pretty good. But trust TT to turn these figures into the works of art and love they were designed to be, primus knows hasbro would never do that - too costly >:oP

On a weird rando whim I pre-ordered this guy from AmiAmi (where you can't cancel pre-orders) and I was starting to regret it. But, now that I see these pictures I remember why I did it.
He's AWESOME! :michaelbay:

No regrets. :lol:

It's like rule #46 of Transformers; a black repaint is an obvious and pretty easy way to sell a toy again... but goddamn if it isn't always beautiful.

Only nitpick with Nemesis, and the mold itself, is that the wings seem a little too low. Otherwise, though, he's awesome. Good work Takara. ;)^

I've thought this too. I'm surprised it hasn't been brought up before. If youre going to give a figure wings make them at his shoulders, granted they probably weren't able to do that with this mold.
I really wish I hadn't missed the preorders for Nemesis Prime, although it's for the best since I already have one black Prime figure and if I got any more I'd really be down the rabbit hole.

The paint job on him is nice, but just as nice as Hasbro's paintjob on the Clash repaint.
