    Courtesy of Tformers:

    Long exposure to the freezing waste of deep space has irreversibly mutated SCOURGE®. No longer a flame-spewing monster consumed by his passions, he is now a creature of ice and cold. Calculating, cruel, and without mercy, he radiates a freezing aura that causes circuitry to short out, and renders AUTOBOT® alloys brittle and easily shattered. His breath, once a raging firestorm, is now a creeping cold that sneaks into joints and mechanisms, destroying them from within. The blade of is axe is a razor-sharp shard of supercooled hydrogen ice that leaves a deadly numbness wherever it strikes.

    Cool bio. If I ever find this toy heavily clearenced I'll have to pick it up...it's a cool mold, but not worth paying full price for twice IMO.

    Cool bio, and I'm not feeling too bad that I didn't get him the first time around (like these colors a lot better). He might just hang out with my Classics figures.

    I still think they should have called him Cyrotek and made him a new character :p

    Neat bio. Sounds like he's become very deadly.

    I'm still conflicted as to whether or not I should track down Scourge (I thought he'd sit on shelves for a little while longer, not disappear before Christmas) or get this one. I loved Flame Convoy's character, but I like Cryo-Scourge's colors enough.

    ...of course, if Cryo-Scourge comes with a silver Jungle Planet key like the in-package sample, all bets are off (I want the four gold Planet Forces).

    Yup. But I'm not getting him, regardless of how cool he looks.

    It's probably a blessing that they didn't make them Cryotek, as my funds will be going toward MP03 and MP04....

    I thought Scourge was basically a good guy who was drawn in by Megatron's shenanigans... I mean he runs beast planet and made friends with that girl child...

    So he amazingly got lost in space and is now super pissed off?

    Feh... Should have been a different character.

    see this is why I buy the takara first use of the mold and the hasbro repaints.

    FLame Convoy and Cryo-scourge, can treat them as different characters. Only problem is well, Exillion...

    gasket and Ransack GTS, Nitro Convoy, and Override GT, Backpack and cybertron defense Scattershot, you get the idea.

    Cryo-Scourge

    This repaint is cool. I lucked out on the origional Scourge, so i plan on getting this one. The only thing wrong with this figure, unless the change it, is that in the prototype in box pic, it had a silver and green planet key, instead of the leader's gold accented planet key. This is a problem, because I plan on collicting all of the leader planet keys.:D

    Yeah if you go by cartoon story line it makes no sense
    but if you go by the toy bio they sound cool.

    Cool repaint and I would like to see comparison shots with the Lucky Draw. Like others have mentioned, this should have been a new character. It will be Cryotek in my collection.

    Yeah I agree an all-new character just named Cryotek would have been better...but at least they're not using that family tree BS they did for the Energon repaints...
