It's become par for the course as of late for us to get our first look at future repaints from the original figure's instruction sheet. Earlier this week it was discovered that Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar would in fact have a remolded Junkion head sometime down the road. Well this time around the future repaint isn't so apparent. Allspark.com member Code of Walky has uploaded a picture of the alternate head here. While most of us have speculated that G2 Optimus Prime would probably get repainted into Ultra Magnus or maybe even RID Scourge this new head is rather ambiguous and has an almost organic appearance. The image has been mirrored below.

Feel free to speculate on who this repaint will be in our forums!

My initial guess would be that they're trying to add a bit of character to Scourge.

But that would raise the question of having two characters released in the same year with the same name.

Look at that headsculpt... then look at this.

While it's not the classical bucket-in-a-box look, the new head does seem to homage the original toy head for Motormaster. And the toy is already a semi truck that weilds a sword... seems like a pretty natural fit to me, IMHO.

And this certainly doesn't preclude the use of the mold to give us Scourge/Nemesis Prime or Toxitron at a later date, of course.

the face looks decepticon to me. So I guess it will be Scourge(or more likely as he will be packaged Nemesis)

Motormaster would be sexy though. That would be a repaint i would buy.

And who is toxitron? all i ever saw was he was a proposed figure that was given the axe. and he looks hideous

Maybe Optimus Primal? the second pic looks kind of monkey like. Reminds me of the Cybertron/Galaxy Force Optimus Primal/Prime

Hm..that would be neat to see since we got a classics Drag Strip out of a previous mold so... I can believe in it

I say this a lot: I highly doubt they'll call him Scourge if this is who he represents. He'd probably be another Nemesis Prime. They probably wouldn't release two toys of the same name so close to each other in order of release.

Oh...that would be brilliant. I can't believe I didn't even think of Motormaster. I just went to the remolds of Laser Prime.

That's what I'm thinking as well. Probably Hasbro's way to tick off the "Truk not Munky!" crowd :lol:

Has anyone bothered to entertain the notion that not all of these are getting recycled and that this may, in fact, just be a really crappy drawing/rendition of a head sculpt that had too much detail to be accurately rendered? I won't deny that it is a well done mold in terms of articulation and detail but I also have to say that I honestly don't see this mold being re-purposed for anything else. I think Hasbro has enough lined up for release over the next 1-2 years that I doubt they would even waste their time repainting this as Scourge. Turning it into Motor Master or Magnus would just be insulting to both the fans and the characters.

Oh man.. When I saw the headline I thought we were getting a look at the upgrade kit that we saw the other night. If it's a RID Scourge, I'll buy it. Otherwise, I'll probably pass on it.

Motormaster seems like the best bet, but the face also reminds me of WFC Sentinel Prime.

My first thought was Sentinel or Zeta Prime.

I just hope this doesn't push back a Nemesis/Scourge repaint (which should have the original Optimus head).

I fully expect Hasbro to get at least one repaint out of this mold. It would be unusual for them not to. If they don't have a place for that repaint in the current Generations or Reveal the Shield line, then it will very likely be in the next incarnation of the Classics line. And I would be shocked if they don't go for the obvious, which is Scourge. It would be great to see Nemesis/Scourge on store shelves again, rather than a convention exclusive.

Defs looks like Zeta Prime to me.

To me each head looked a little different. I have no idea who this could be, and I wonder even if we'll see this figure this year.
