Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from last weekends official reveal of Kingdom Voyager Class Cyclonus, the spotlights returns to Studio Series 86, and to Cyclonus's comrade in arms, Scourge!

Fellow Seibertron user, Praxiusprime77, has let us know that fellow Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime, has gotten his mitts on Voyager Class Scourge, a figure which so far, has had no official reveal.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



From this review you can see how Scourge looks next to Generations toys like Optimus and Megatron.

What do you think of this figure? Is this the definitive Scourge for your collection? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Uh...yeah that looks pretty good I guess. IDK I've never been that much of a Scourge fan. Never really liked his surfboard spaceship mode, and the robot mode doesn't look that appealing to me. But I'll probably get him anyways to go along with Cyclonus and Galvatron. Not thrilled about the back kibble, but I can look past it.

They should release Glavatron in Rescue Bots just to complete the randomness of it all. :lol:

Yeah but see, Galvatron is just that nuts... he would overthrow the shackles of "suggested age" and play range :lol:

Nope, it's something I can see the networks and retailers demanding in a kids line.

Scourge looks good, but I'm not sure either orientation of the backpack is correct.

In all seriousness, it's probably just something that goes without saying, but I've no sources to confirm it.

Though, even if it were the case, Rescue Bots Academy has featured at least three Decepticons (two former, one current) in its cartoon. One of which is Grimlock due to his being the same guy as RID 2015 Grimlock, who was originally a Decepticon before he joined the Autobots in that show.

I'm really impressed with that Scourge figure.
This is another example of a figure that is so good, any future improvement(s) may seem borderline pointless... I cannot wait to get this, and I'm not even a huge fan of this character.
Bring on Galvatron!!

Let me preface this by saying I in no way want to seem like a party pooper, BUT these freakishly early video reviews of figures that we are only just now seeing preliminary promotional photos of does not seem like the most solid thing to make a case for or against any of these 86' movie figures. Until official photos drop Scourge will not be on my rader...

Speaking of . . . my attachment to the character is limited to when he showed up in an old marvel uk issue where he's sneaking around a factory getting ambushed by Ironhide and some others? He *seemed* cool then :lol: So maybe he might be worth picking up in the future just based on that, Im sure we've all made more arbitrary purchases

looks really good, hopefully it can do the visible head in spaceship mode. Lots of the WFC holes on him but cleverly done and a shame it isnt wfc and having to pay £6 more for him :( so I might wait on reductions of some sort.

Yeah Protoman called them out. PvP and TT have been trying to sell these stolen toys after they review them to other people for 5 times the price. Shady I wouldn't prop them up...ijs >:oP

Yikes.

On another note, I think Scourge looks really good, Possibly the best Scourge yet.
I do wonder though, How many people are planning to buy three of him, One for Scourge, Two for the Sweeps. :D

I'm gonna get 1 Scourge and buy another TR Scourge to go with the 1 I have to represent the Sweeps.

Depending on what else comes from this line, I really will consider getting 3... As I said in my previous post, it's difficult for me to see how a future version (in a regular release line) of this guy could be substantially better than this one.

What I wonder is what Hastak is thinking; making figures that are this good may mean more and more people are with me in finally being able to say, "This is an incredible figure... And now I'm freed from ever spending another dime on any other figure of this character... Hastak is going be getting less and less of my money from now on".

Makes me think of TR Galvatron... Finally a voyager, most of him looked really solid, and people bit... But I don't believe that Hasbro was thinking, "Well people, this is it... This is THE Galvatron that everyone will buy and love forever... Looks like we can close the design book on this guy".
I'm sure a lot of people do like that figure. But Hasbro probably knew going into that release, "Yeah, we stand behind this, but the head gimmick IS a bit of a compromise... Oh well, looks like in a few years we'll get some more money for another version".
Which is not to suggest this is some new insight. Improvements as well as gimmicks have provided some variety to core characters.
Just interesting to think that sooner than later people won't really want new versions of some of these characters because we're getting to the point where figures won't be substantially better.
And for someone like me who's not into gimmicks, seems like ER and SS86 will in some ways be the final chapter of my collection.

I wouldn't worry too much about their profits. The thing is, now that they have the "definitive" version of scourge, as you say, they can just reissue him when they think there's been enough of a customer turnover. And without having to spend money designing a new one.

I plan to get one Scourge and one K. Cyclonus to counter my old Generations/Classics ones. The CW and TR ones don't count because gimmicks.

Personally I think its great that they're making definitive toys of these as it means they can soon focus on new characters, or new versions of old characters (think Starscream as an F22 Raptor but G1 is robot mode)

What they also have to do (which will be harder to achieve) is making fans (old and new) love these new characters like kids did in 84.

When Scourge is officially revealed, PM me, depending on how good this one is I might sell you my TR one and pick up this new one (I say officially because I do not watch PVP or Tonton reviews, and I wait for actual product stuff instead of leaked samples)

I was thinking something along those lines.
