    Scourge (not G1 Goatee-Guy) seems to have become the new it-boy on the forums. Did he get a new release announced or something?

    He's just severely awesometastic, is all. And there's a lot of RiD love here.

    It wouldn't be the fact that the Generations G2 Prime looks just like Scourge, so it would be safe to assume that with a little repaint, we could get an awesome RiD figure in the Generations line, huh?

    of all the figures released, then repainted into other characters, this mold is a no-brainer.
    the only way Hasbro could screw the pooch on this is to repaint it and sell it as Motormaster.
    god forbid...

    I think it started with the Botcon reveal of FP's G2 Laser Prime upgrade, it got everyone wishing Takara/Hasbro would release Black Convoy Scourge soon so FP could make a black version to go with it :)

    One person mentions it, then everyone wants in on the ground floor lest they not seem 'cool'.

    I personally couldn't give two shits about Scourge. Or Erector for that matter. Not saying I don't like them, I'm just incredibly 'meh'. I don't see the point in these random board memes. Just wait it out, there will be another one along in a few months.

    Agreed.
    I love erector, but only because I got him for christmas, along with the other three micromaster thingies.
    For me, Scourge is a flying boat thing with a goatee. I don't care what name you give it, a black re-paint of Optimus Prime is still a black re-paint of Optimus Prime.

    It basically comes down to wanting the black repaint of G2 Prime from generations but we do not want him named Nemesis Prime but rather Scourge including the upside down G2 autobot symbols. As much as i dislike RID as a show i enjoyed the characters especially Scourge. That is the general consensus for the character.

    I jumped on because it's RIDs time. I can support a movement like this.

    ...................

    That is one of THE most biased, ignorant, and neglectfully researched articles full of known untruths I've seen out of this fandom in a long time. This is a great example of why my only activities here are where photos of toys are concerned.

    I'm pretty certain he's just trying to have some fun with the subject.

    And the above is a blatant example of not getting tongue-in-cheek humor.

    Actually, I kind of like to think that he was being sarcastic.

    Scourge is the new Erector.

    There, I said it.


    (Scourge is a pretty awesome guy though, at least)

    I heard a rumor that Optimus Prime was actually a retconned repaint of Scourge.

    This thinking is pretty much all the reasoning I need for something like this. As much as I absolutely adore Sky-Byte, Scourge was, and is, by far my favorite character from RiD. RiD is one of my favorite cartoons/stories from TFs ever, and Scourge really embodies well what I like about it.

    Some things are rocket science. This is not, though I can understand the confusion and such.
