I am so getting that Black Convoy if there's a chance.

The face looks much better with brighter eyes and the silver encased by purple. Also the black horns look way better than the rusty crusty "chop shop" look.

I'd def choose the Takara on this mold... but still holding out for a MP Galvatron announcement one day for that spot on my shelf.

Maybe now maketoys will finally make a trailer for scourge for those who dont want to buy their take on the figure.

Yep, Fun Pub definitely did it better with their Scourge compared to the deco of this Black Convoy.

But Takara's Armada Megatron, however, is a little better looking than Hasbro's.

I was almost going to accuse you of fan-boy cronyism but I went to look at both of them and yeah, I think you're right. The more purple and details in the face really bring out the different look.

Personally, I really like my Armada Megatron. In Fact, he inspired me to watch a few Armada episodes...which I didn't like that much. but I don't think I'll double-dip though. However, I wonder why they didnt do an orange stripe on the horns? That seems like a detail Takara would be all about.

oh and BTW, I will probably be getting that Scourge. Don't have a decent rep of him and since it's based on Laser Prime it looks good to me.

TFCC did Scourge better. BC here is missing his upside down G2 bot symbol!

Takara has done a bang-up job. However, considering the price and the limited nature, you would have thought that they could have given him a Targetmaster, or an Arms Micron as leader-1. That's what I am going to give him.

Also, what with Grand Scourge, TFA nemesis Prime, and now this, could it be that this is the most congested amount of Nemmys we've ever had in such a short space of time?

You sure about that? Black Convoy will be an on-show exclusives (like SDCC exclusives are) while Scourge is a TFSS figure. Which one is more rare?

Black Convoy is more accurate to the source material with the added striping, :RENEGADE: aside, but the TFSS version should be easier to get. :-?

Well dang. I thought it was a general release. Well there goes my chances.

Fun Pub's Scourge has the more show-accurate shoulder paint:

Takara's Black Convoy seems to instead just have solid gray (or bizarrely gray and silver) shoulders instead of gray and black.

I will admit that Takara's has the extra stripes on the side of the truck mode, but it's not a major loss. Nor are the Combatron symbols on his shoulder that much of a bonus since the guy never had those on him outside of scenes toward the end of the series where he was trying to control Fort Max/Brave Max.

And the bright neon teal of Scourge seems to stand out a lot more than the more muted teal on Black Convoy. In fact, while it could just be the image, all of the colors on Black Convoy seem more muted compared to Scourge's colors.

The now famous TFyuki has taken to Twitter once again with a new tease of Transformers Legends Black Convoy alongside RID series comrades Gelshark (SkyByte) and TAV-08 Gregevor (possibly a homage to Ruination's Rollbar). He'll be a Tokyo Toy Show 2015 exclusive alongside Legends Armada Megatron, and is very reminiscent of the 2014 Collector Club's Scourge.

And if that weren't enough we have another Black Convoy (of sorts) lighting up Twitter today, E-Hobby Unite Warriors Grand Scourge! He's shown squaring off against Transformers Masterpiece MP-10 Convoy (Optimus Prime) who has a Reissue due the end of this June. To see the pics simply look below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!

I never actually got this deluxe mold for optimus prime, so getting Black Convoy would be a TREAT! :DANCE:

Btw I just started collecting like a year ago so I have HUNDREDS OF FIGURES TO GET! SO DON"T JUDGE ME FOR NOT HAVING THIS MOLD YET! >:(

Honestly, it depends on the price... but I can see Black Convoy costing more than what TFCC Scourge currently commands (on the secondary market).

That's good if neither are going to be very expensive

I'm still liking Grand Scourge, glad I got him preordered.

I'm kinda OK with the Takara version, as it'll be cheaper for me to import here than the club version, and I like the extra red accents around the shoulders

Grand Scourge shall team up with Alpha Bravo, Offroad, Rook and some future 4th other character to form a combiner all their own!

I shall call call the combined form: Outcast.
