    My first reaction: "Wilfred Brimley?"

    Oatmeal and Diabeetus.

    ETA: Which is not to suggest I don't like it.

    I thought it might be this mold. I like the new head on him. I didn't think I would like the robot form for this mold though, but all painted up it's not too bad. Vehicle form makes sense for him.

    Now that looks awesome. Love the new face sculpt, blows the titanium one away.

    ah the money shot of the whole set. will it be worth hunting down like the classics seekers? Maybe not but still for those going its an awesome toy...

    As for the new head I can see why its that shape but I cant help feel it looks a little off and it leaves those holes in the jet and that's a shame.

    Is there a faction switch feature on this use of the figure?

    Suddenly I'm not as mad that I can't go to BotCon this year, the colors are just way to pastely for me and the molds = barf AEC I'm over it let them fad away

    Honestly? Disappointing. So far the box set is just under half and half for me (as in I don't like this, and I sort of like Kup).

    Not bad. I think I'll still use Titanium Scourge as Scourge, and this guy as the Sweep :)

    Easy pass now. Head mold is ok but I wouldn't pick that figure even for a kitbash. Now energon Mirage on the other hand would have been a different story. I'm sorry but this set really seems slopped together with no cohesion.

    Still hoping for a Universe Scourge as that mold just doesn't suit him.
