I don't like the abrupt color change on OP in alt mode between the black hood and blue cab. I'm still getting him because it looks like a really nice new mold just wish it was more uniform or at least blended a little better.

I don't think much of Laser Prime, but Scourge is looking great! It looks to me as if there is a hinge in the leading edge of the wings to open them up further to make his big bat like wings in robot mode.

Scourge looks interesting. But I'll likely wait for the inevitable repaint.

I'm thinking Dreadwing maybe.

Prime looks bad in these pictures. Why are his hands just resting on the rear tires in vehicle mode. And was all that blue really necessary? Only his abs, feet and head are supposed to be blue.

I think that is highly unlikely considering there is a already Generations Dreadwing figure coming out soon...I suppose it's POSSIBLE, way down the line, but I doubt it...

I'm excited about Scourge even though I'm not at all crazy about his alt-mode...I wish it was a little more similar to the G1 alt-mode...Looks decent enough in robot mode though and he is of course necessary to go with Galvatron and Cyclonus...


As for Laser Prime...The exposed hands in truck-mode is a major fail (assuming that picture is transformerd correctly, they should be WAY past that, by this point)...But if they repaint this as Nemesis Prime in the same manner they did for the original Laser Prime, I will buy it in a heartbeat...

That Scourge looks great, it's a well done figure! Also, I, for one, like the Laser Optimus Prime. The color scheme may not be the best, and the hands being exposed like that is rather annoying, but as a mold, and a figure in general, I think it looks great overall! :) I'm pretty sure I'll be on the lookout for him when these guys are released.

Who? That Tokyo Toy Show exclusive repaint of ROTF Mindwipe?
Habsro is in no way limited by that but of course they could use another name, maybe Smokescreen? Or even B.B. if you think they can go that obscure.

These pictures just make prime look like a horrible arrangement of colors. I like Scourge though.

Now that there's no Photoshop in the way, G2 Prime looks aweful. And not just the paint work. His overall stature just doesn't look particularly impressive. I think they've clipped his 'ears'.

Scourge on the other hand, I don't think he's ever looked better. Still not thrilled about the semi-blue leading edge. But his robot mode is looking very cool. I even don't care about the shape of his wings anymore, although I do think your man Dread_Wing makes a vaild point. There does seem to be more to their design than simple one-piece wings.

Really looking forward to this pair of figures. Prime's sword is no doubt a homage to Movie Prime's Swiss Army knife. :lol:

Off topic: For the record, Cyclonus was originally Skywarp. Just saying. :lol:

WHY THE HECK IS SCOURGE's EYES BLUE!!!! :sad:

They are RED in the cartoon
Image


They are RED in the Marvel comics
Image


They are RED in the Dreamwave and IDW comics
Image

Image


They are RED in every singly G1 Scourge toy
Image

Image


And even though the sweeps had red eyes too in the G1 cartoon the convention exclusive version had yellow eyes...

So basically Scourge has never had Blue eyes before
Image


Not to be such an angry nerd here :evil: Image

but I really don't like the Blue eyes....
but its nothing some red paint applications won't fix ;)

Just to prove I'm not really a GEEWUNNER despite my name and previous rant, I wonder if they will repaint this G2 prime into Scourge....
No not the G1 one, the RID one:

They better give him RED eyes!

Why does Prime have the parts to carry a round trailer? He doesn't have a trailer. Those parts look terrible in robot mode.

Is there plans to release a trailer later, or are they just making things easy for a third party?

I do still like the figure overall, though.

The trailer hitch forms his sword in robot mode.

Posted by Dead Metal on November 26th, 2010 @ 1:07pm CST
You know that Prime is still unfinished and it's misstransformed. You can see that his paint apps aren't complete, at least on his engine section, so the blue might turn out to be painted black on the final toy.
The bot-mode could look awesome once correctly transformed and with better paintapps but damn do I hate the look of his alt-mode.
Why change his alt-mode? it only looks shite the way they did it.

Posted by Burn on November 26th, 2010 @ 1:37pm CST
As i've said before, you can't improve on perfection, Prime proves that.

Scourge ... ugh, I hate the wings. I don't know why they had to go for a more "realistic" looking alt mode, they could have just stuck with his original alt mode and lose that big pointless wings.

looking forward to both.......will have to do something about Scourge and his eyes.....I kinda need them to be red.

Posted by Optimum Supreme on November 26th, 2010 @ 2:03pm CST
Prime looks far inferior to the original. I was really excited for that one, but not so much anymore. I'll still probably pick one up if I ever see it and have the cash, but frankly won't be too upset if I never find one.

Scourge looks really cool in robot mode, alt mode just does nothing for me, though. Still, need to get him to go with Cyclonus and Galvatron.

And every time I see a topic title or headline somewhere saying Generations, G2 Prime, and Scourge all together, I forget for a second that it's G1 Scourge and think they've gone ahead with a repaint of the generations G2 OP as RID Scourge. Which, while it'd probably be a good idea for a repaint, I have no real reason to care, since I already have the RID version, and there's not a thing I can see in pics of this new mold that makes me think it's in any way better.

Ah. Well, that's good. I still don't see what the rounded cup part on his back is for, though. It looks like it can split down the middle and fold open. But I can't seem to picture what that would form.

Scourges robot mode is awesome. WhaT ever plane he is supposed to be I don't feel like fits him. Optimus is ridiculous. No respected leader of anything would put flames on themselves.

I think a 3rd party trailer would greatly improve the value of that figure. It is a nice looking mold but as most people as said, slightly disappointing compared to the original. It would also be really cool to have a classics style deluxe prime with a trailer.

They often put redundant hitches on Primes. ROTF Leader Prime has a very detailed one. Unless they're going to majorly suprise us with DOTM and offer a trailer, it's pretty useless.

Oh whoops, forgot to comment on the topic. :lol: I am all over that Scourge like red on Prime. Bring it!

I think Scourge looks fantastic, I will not hesitate on picking him.

I will wait for the inevitable repaint of Laser Prime to RID Scourge before I buy this mold.

I have no idea why there are only flames on half of Primes front. :-?

So I take it your not a fan of the live action movies. That's fine. I don't really care what paint apps he has, as long as his packaging has the words TRANSFORMERS, OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, all that kinda stuff and he looks like what he is supposed to look like. And that he isn't a KO, and made by Hasbro. ;) :lol:

I think Scourge's robot mode is a contender for best robot mode in the entire Generations/United line. :CON:

Posted by Rodimus Minor on November 26th, 2010 @ 6:50pm CST
I agree with Munkimus a RID Scourge repaint off Prime would be awesome.

I am kind off sad that Scourge didn't come with Fracus guess Cyclonus was the only one who did but still Scourge is pure Win.

Optimus looks awesome but why is only one off his sides painted with flames I will buy him regardless

These look so sweet! Gotta get them both.

And to those of you who want an RID "Scourge", we'll probably end up getting a "Nemesis Prime" because the two characters are very different and Hasbro and Takara wouldn't want to release two characters of the same name in the same class in the same toyline.

Does this stem from G1 Rodimus Prime by any chance?

I'm getting both, naturally, but Scourge is higher priority.

That's why I'm hoping for a RID Scourge styled repaint. I mean, we've got black Prime repaints for that last several years just to have them. I'd be pretty dissapointed if they chose not to use it for the remake of the figure that started it all.

That part is not supposed to be on the back. They are supposed to be on the sides which covers his hands. It is mistransformed in those pics.

It should be like this:

That G2 Optimus is SO getting repainted by Hasbro as Ultra Magnus.
I would be pleased but he's a tiny deluxe so no chance I'll get it. This figure should be at least Voyager sized. :BOT:

Ok, I'll be the one to say it. If I didn't already know this was an official product, I would think it was a Chinese KO, at most another companies transforming robot. I refuse to believe that this KO looking, $3 style bot is an official product from Hasbro. Articulation may look good but I don't think it will look good with my other Classicverse bots. There is no flow with the paint job in vehicle mode either. It is like movie Prime sexually assualted Classics Prime and this was the mutated offspring. Totally easy pass for me.
