With the recent licensing in Transformers lines, any use of an Optimus Prime figure as a character other than Optimus Prime has been prevented. The last time an Optimus Prime figure was remade into a Decepticon was Classics Nemesis Prime, and we've been through several toy lines since then! Energon Pub member and customizer Toyphilia decided that the leader of the Autobots needed to be back in black, and what better way to do it than by using ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime. The figure is tainted with a little evil, the black hues and lighting decals signifying the essence of the Decepticon called Scourge. To top it all off, Scourge comes with his trademark sword and trailer. Check out toyphilia's masterpiece below!

The lightning details is beautiful!

...Heeeeey, I've got that sword! Was included with a faux-transformer I got years ago, currently lying somewhere in one of the toyboxes...

Yup Hasbro you really should be on these boards because if you made some of these customs then your bottom line would look as bad ass as them.

You seriously didn't see one of those yet? 9 out of 10 knockoff figures have those here.

I was curious about that too. Never seen it myself. But just as important as the sword, that's one awesome paint job. I'm always amaazed how kitbashers can get such awesome looking custom paintjobs. The one custom I did looked like $%!* I guess kitbashing isn't in my blood. That Nemesis Prime is simply amazing.

Very nice, but I'm more interested in this statement:

"With the recent licensing in Transformers lines, any use of an Optimus Prime figure as a character other than Optimus Prime has been prevented."

Was there some kind of official declarition from Hasbro on this?

I can only recall 5 (6 if you count the legends class version in RiD). Seems a Nemesis Prime repaint only happens every few years as it is.

RiD Scourge (G2 Laser Prime repaint - also available in legends class)
Armada Nemesis Prime/Scourge
Universe Nemesis Prime (Big Convoy repaint)
Alternators Nemesis Prime
Universe/Classics 2.0 Nemesis Prime

Just curious on the background.

Even my wife was floored...and she often laughed at my giddiness with my chosen hobby.

How the hell did you do the lightning? Or do you not want to share your secret with those of us who are kitbash-challeneged... :BANG_HEAD:

Might be something to take to Hasbro Q&A at BotCon or SDCC...

Flip the damn shoulder panels up all the way!!

I swear, every single picture of ROTF Prime in existence has those panels in the wrong position. Look at his CGI model! They're at a diagonal angle, almost horizontal, not flush with the rest of his arm. I'm being a whiny little nit-picker, but it just bugs the crap out of me every time I see it, especially in professional-quality photos on sites like these.

It was an assumption of mine, so yes it would be nice if Hasbro could clarify it.

On a scale of 1 to 10, this one goes to 11. That is the best Scourge/Nemesis yet. This definitely needs to be waved under Hasbros nose with a note saying "THIS is how you do it!!" Awesome Job!! 8)

Well, I did say I was being whiny and nitpicking. Sorry my post wasn't full of glowing, retna-searing praise like all the others. I know if I put as much effort as this guy put into his work, I'd make darn sure it looked as good as it could. But that's just me. I'll think differently before having a not-100%-positive opinion next time. :D

This thing is absurdly awesome. And what a great reiteration of the original rid Scourge. Just freaking fantastic.

BTW, the transformation is good enough for me. There is being nit-picky, and then there is being nit-picky to a very exagerated level.

This thing is a damned Masterwork. Great job.
