    Hello fellow board members,

    Does anyone have any idea what the supposed Classics Ultra Class Scourge is?

    Is he going to be...

    Just another repaint of Cybertron Scourge?
    Maybe a black repaint of Cybertron Prime??
    An actual G1 Scourge???

    many thanks.

    This one, but it's not called Scourge. That was just a place holder, it's Predacon Bruticus.

    Yeah, I was hoping for a g1 scourge myself. Oh well, hopefully they'll make a targetmaster deluxe now.

    Why they would waste the mold on a homage to such an awful toy is beyond me... at least if they were reusing that mold they could have made Trypticon based on the Classics Legends figure. When the listing came up I was really hoping it was a new RID Scourge.

    We already got "RiD Scourge". It's Nemesis Prime.

    And some people liked RiD and the various new toys that came from it. Including Bruticus. And by some people, I mean quite a lot of us all posting in the other thread about the Cyb Scourge repaint.

    Also, Classics/Universe isn't just about G1, and I for one am glad that all the eras are represented by at least one figure. Or at least, have the potential to be.

    And why would they make the two a $25 redo of a figure parents can get for under $5? That's just dumb business. Don't make a toy based on Legends figures. Make the Legends figures based on the big toy. Otherwise parents will go, "No, you already got that thing" and never buy it.

    Not to mention that it was left-overs from Beast Machines that never got released.

    What Otaku said. They needed at least one RID nod in Universe for 25th anniversary. I'm up for listening to anybody else better idea to reference the line...although not that I think about it Maybe the bruticus combiner repaint would have better recieved if it had been ruination instead

    That's exactly why I want it; it's Beast Machines related.

    i rather like that RiD Bruticus got a nod. it's a pretty cool character/concept. i'd just as soon get a better-painted version of the Deluxe, though, and have this Scourge recolor done up in either RiD Megs or Galv colors to reference him [since these colors are a little too close to original Cyb Scourge for me[.
