Man, I really want that figure. Wish it had been available for general release. :-(

And there it is! Took a while for the most obvious repaint to show up, and it's an exclusive. Oh well.

I'll have to check the mailbox when I get home. I only live a couple of hours away from FubPub's office, and usually get their figures within the first couple of days of shipping.

Really wishing I'd preordered it when it was up at TfSource or BBTS. Guess I'll get into a bidding war with you in short order. May the wealthier man win.

you could have just paid the ridonkulous shipping charges and maybe have gotten it someday!

worst case scenario...grab a spare RTS Prime and some black paint.

I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me. The bot mode has nice articulation and posability. But I've already got the original with Reprolabels and the Generations Gift Set repaint, so even if this was a retail release, I don't think I'd be interested in a 3rd version of this mold.

I got mine today and was pretty excited to see the FunPub box. I thought maybe they were going to finally redeem themselves for the past mistakes.

That lasted for about 50 seconds after I opened the box. Apparently that new mailer that FunPub was bragging about when they announced the service isn't all it's cracked up to be. The foam was too thick on the bottom and there is no foam on top. This resulted in the smokestacks rubbing against the top cardboard of the box and wearing the paint off. :BOOM:

I feel like I've given FunPub enough chances to get things right, but they keep finding ways to screw things up.

At any rate, everything else about the figure is in good shape. I don't want to risk getting a bad figure back just for two areas of rubbed paint, so I'm not going to send it back. I'll probably just touch it up with a little silver paint on my own. However, I will recommend that everyone check their figures when the come in.

You're not gonna get an email. Mine showed up this morning. I transformed him and he went straight into a display case with the rest of my Scourge figures. Had some minor rub on the side of one of the smokestacks but I don't care about it. Kinda weird that they put foam in the boxes. I was surprised to see it. Now I feel like I have to keep that ugly mailer box, haha.

Got mine today, but haven't opened him yet, not sure if I'm going to.

Really disappointed that these guys aren't getting fancy boxes with art on them like all the exclusives from previous yeas that I didn't get. Does this guy even come with tech specs? Or even instructions?

The specimens showing up on ebay have the usual bio/tech spec card, but I can't make it out.

Anyone who received him willing to give us his bio and specs?

I wouldn't be so sure. They went through a lot to create a new "Renegade" symbol for him, using :G2CON: instead of the correct :G2BOT: . Maybe that'll play a part in the BotCon's Clone Army story since his function is now "Clone Commander".

Got mine today, holding him as we speak. I haven't transformed him yet and I'm not certain I'm going to, as it's damn near impossible to get those stupid little tabs on his backpack to go into the slots on the tops of his legs in vehicle mode all the way as they are right now, so this is probably as perfect as his truck mode will ever be.

Paint mishaps, smokestacks rubbing in the shipping box, scratches on hoods, things of that nature.

The toy does have the correct :RENEGADE: symbol. It's just the bio card that doesn't.

Also, why does this site refer to the :RENEGADE: symbol as "Renegade"? The six characters who bear that symbol are never called that in either Car Robots or RiD. The true faction name for this insignia is "Combatron", while the RiD dub changed it to just "Decepticon" for all six and "Commando" specifically for the five who combiner into Ruination.

Oh yeah, I guess one of mine's smokestacks got paint rubbed off the end, but it looks like normal blackening from smoke, so I'm cool with it.

I agree they should curb the issue in the future by putting them in plastic baggies inside the foam though, if they can't make a separate piece of foam fit snug in the top.

What's really odd is that no one pointed that out until now. It's been that way on this site since 2001 or 2002. I've always incorrectly referred to them as Renegades. I don't know where I got that name from and how I missed the Combatrons. Any time you see errors like that on this site, I'd love to have them pointed out so that it can be corrected.

I'll correct this soon when I update the site so that I can add the new Predacon faction amongst some others that are sorely missing from the site.

Wow. :shock: Odd, indeed.

I guess I either didn't notice until now or simply long forgot about it since I don't really use the :RENEGADE: emoticon since I rarely use any emoticons on the second page of the selection. :oops:

Seibertron wrote:I've always incorrectly referred to them as Renegades. I don't know where I got that name from and how I missed the Combatrons.
One possibility could be how the G1 Combaticons were referred to as "Renegade Decepticons" back in the G1 cartoon, and the Commandos are redecos of them, so a connection could have originated from that.

Other than that, there's the GoBots Renegade faction, which might be more of a stretch. :P

It doesn't look too bad to be honest, but I'm only interested in it because of MakeToys' add-on, but at the prices I'd probably have to pay I'm not sure I can say it's worth it.

I am now picturing Optimus Prime as a Sailor Senshi. Thanks for that.


Anyhoo, that Scourge is a thing of beauty. I kinda want one, but not for the prices he's going at. And I missed my shot at signing up for the subscription service because of money issues. But I'll be glad to admire him from afar.

Returned from trip yesterday and had Scourge waiting for me on the step!

Anyone else have bent card and instruction issues?
How about the smokestacks poking through the first tier of cardboard?

Finally with the interior foam packaging for each of these packed in; does anyone think a collectors box may be released to collect them all together??
Official or 3rd party would be fine with me; anyone else agree or voices of dissent?
