i do love a black repaint. My bright purple slug just got thrown over my shoulder to land in the trash through a tiny, comedy basketball hoop to make space on the shelf for this bad boy.

I will probably regret that, when i find out the only way i can buy it is importing it at great personal cost, waiting months for it to arrive only for it to be seized by Royal Mail until i pay the import tax and £20 ransom fee.

I really can't tell if this is supposed to be Takara's answer to a movie-accurate redeco of this mold, or if they just wanted to do it in black for fun.

Thanks to Takara Tomy's Transformers Twitter account, We get new images of the Lost Age LA-13 Nemesis Prime. This figure is a black and teal redeco of the Power Battlers Optimus Prime and is expected to be released in Japan this weekend. Check out the images we've mirrored below.

It's like Takara wanted some kind of exclusive deco, but couldn't find s decent toy to put it on. Welcome to the Age of Extinction toyline.

More like, "We already have an Optimus toy, what do we do with the Power Attacker to avoid duplicate characters outside of Grimlock?"

This is sure to be popular among 5-year-olds who collect repaints. >:oP

Wouldn't be a repaint to Japan, as they never got the Power Attacker Optimus in some form until now. They did get the One-Step as an exclusive.

My point is that it doesn't make much sense to take a toy designed for pre-schoolers and give it a paint job that appeals to collectors. The audience for one-step changers probably don't know who Nemesis Prime even is. It's a strange combination. Then again, Japan is a strange country. ;)

Not the best repaint, but it's interesting.

So wait, he has 4 arms? 2 of which just sort of sprout out of nowhere for the gimmick attack?

And yeah, it's weird making a collector-orientated version of a kiddie toy.

This figure is no different from the decos of the other Lost Age Series toys.
