I'm genuinely stunned we haven't seen a black version yet.

Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime is a great example of the "hey, it went down really well the first time we did it, so let's just recycle the idea ad infinitum until people latch on" mentality that seems to have existed in the franchise for most of this decade (cf Megatron becoming Galvatron three times in the same continuity, Constant Unicron, endless Minicon recolours, everything eHobby have produced, most of Binaltech... hell, even Animated is essentially a Greatest Hits Remixed album)
