    I'm still scratching my head as to how Scourge exists at the same time as a young Kup.

    Right so no reason given for why he's around thousands of years before he was born? Gods I hope the comic is good cos the toys and their bios are doing nothing for what so ever.

    I guess in the botcon universe nothing coexists in the real reality of transformers.

    I wonder, based on the bio, if a Cyclonus or some Sweeps figures will be offered as souvenirs. Either way, I'm glad for those who are going, but don't really think I'm missing out on anything special with regards to the figures.

    I think that kind of confirms two things:

    -A set of 'sweeps' will make up one of the attendee sets
    -the story is non-linear or deals with some kind of time travel

    I'm guessing Leozak, Skyquake, and a repaint of Scourge as the attendee bonus figure are the "Sweeps"

    Hmmmm... I wonder if Cyclonus is going to be an attendee figure, or if the comic is going to use Universe Cyclonus. I hope Leozak & Skyquake aren't Sweeps.

    i would guess that too...

    didn't they say the story did not involve time travel? unless that was just a red herring!!! but no, seriously, i think they said no time travel in the story...

    i'm very curious to see how they'll do this story...

    I remember them saying that as well, but I like to think that they were somehow trying to throw us off rather than re-write firmly established aspects of the fiction like Scourge's origins.

    Also, like I said, it could just be that the story is non-linear. Scourge could be in the present time while the 'story' happens in the past.

    Who really knows except for FP right now?

    With the specific referral to the sweeps...i would be suprised if there is not a reapaint of scourge in a different color....otherwise FP just did a nice Facepalm on that one...

    I could see the repaint being like this:

    -swap the blue with white and vice versa
    -replace the silver with blue

    If I were home I'd photoshop a pic up, but I think that would pull off an alternate color scheme for the figure which would work in this instance.

    they should just invert the colors...make him orange with clear blue wing blades, and black where the silver is...

    kidding...

    but i do see one repaint of that mold being a sweep...

    with the G1 movie...the sweeps always seemed a off bluish tinged color of scourge....plus with the direct quote" that the sweeps are a "direct extention of his will"....it would make a nod to the group of TF's that unicron gave scourge command over on the G1 movie...

    Just what i am reading into it...

    I faxed my form last nite 4/8 for the boxed set...to get on the waiting list...now i am REALLY hoping i get one...

    won't be able to attend so if there are sweeps avaliable...i will get pillaged on ebay for that ...cause that will definitely be the demand figures this year along with scourge....this is the FP seekers of 2007...everyone will want scourge and the sweeps to complete the universe crew of cylonus,galvatron,etc....

    i'm still torn between getting this scourge, or getting titanium scourge...i like both, and think this one might fit better with cyclonus and galvatron, but man, i just don't know if i need that mold for a 3rd time (he says while looking at his 3 cybertron red alert molds, 4 classics starscream molds, 3 classics mirage molds, etc etc etc)

    yeah...but IF you do not get it...you will have blown a opportunity to get a cool figure(best one of the set aside from FLAK) in my opinion ....and this guy will definitely appreciate in value if you want to get rid of him in the future....

    plus it's SCOURGE...and now this is the only chance to get him in the universe realm...

    Doesn't meant this is the Scourge from 2005 (made from Thundercracker) but could be a different Scourge that existed in an earlier time.
