Well, the paint application looks fantastic, check out 2008 Botcon Exclusive Optimus Prime, now viewable from the homepage of the official Transformers Collector Convention.

Now this is an evil Prime. I like how they didn't just do a straight Sourge/Nemesis Prime-style redeco. This looks more like a contaminated/infected Prime. In fact, if one wanted to, he could be nicknamed "Virus Prime".

Now that is cool, I like the scratches on him. He is not like the other bad Primes, but he is purple. Why? That is odd but he still is very cool.

Amazing colors! And I like the scratches, too.

Also, note the Autobot Logos. This is NOT Nemesis Prime.

He does look pretty wicked. My best guess is that they're going for the "Dark Awakening" look Optimus had back in G1 when he miraculously had come back to life, but with cracks and a good amount of battle damage.
For younger fans that may not know the epi., basically Optimus was brought back to life by Quintessions, and programmed to destroy the Autobots.

That's the Botcon EVIL PRIME?! Holy-it's like that episode of Star Trek...what was it...oh yeah, "Mirror Mirror". Good Grief!

It will be interesting what good Decepticons will look like, if they make any.

I wonder if they'll even be called "Decepticons" because of the "Deception" part of their name. "Autobots" doesn't need to be changed because it only refers to "Automobile" which could be for good or evil. But if they can come up with a clever name change for "Decepticon" then that would be interesting.
