    If you could only have 1 of the mold, ignoring cost, would you go for G2 Laser Prime or RID Scourge? Also, Hasbro or Takara version - or were they identical?

    Gotta go with RID Scourge. There's minimal difference between the two that I'm aware of (Car Robots Vs RID).

    Agreed, Scourge/Black Convoy. There's the usual dulling of sharp edges, for the US one and some color changes, but little diff.

    Scourge/Black Convoy. It was the best of the many black primes.

    I too would go with Scourge,but if you could afford it I say get both.I have both and they have there points,like G2 L. Prime has lights whereas Scourge does not.But Scourge looks Wicked Awesome with teal accents and red windows.As for there trailers I just mainly keep them in trailer mode as the battle station takes up too much room,plus I don't really like the look of it in BS Mode its too GIJoey.

    I don't play favorites a lot, but RiD Scourge is one of my favorites.

    Many moons ago, I went to a toy show and picked up a loose/complete G2 Laser Optimus Prime for $15. I walked out to the parking lot with my best friend at the time, gushing about my deal. I said to him, "this toy only has two things separating it from being even more awesome. It needs to be black and it needs to be a Decepticon." Just a short time later, Car Robots was released. I'm still happy to this day.

    I think G2 laser Prime (original version) is probably the weakest version of the mold. The reissue looks better IMO, but still. (The electronic lightup gimmick is overrated.)

    I also really like the G2 laser Ultra Magnus version. The only time that a white cabtruck transforms into a robot with the colors of the armored version of Ultra Magnus (and not just a white prime). Also a cheaper alternative to Classics with City Commander.

    But the Scourge version is the best. And between Black Convoy and Scourge I'd go for Scourge. BC has some nice metallic silver stickers, but I prefer the Decepticonsymbols from Scourge over the upsidedown Autobot symbol from Black Convoy.

    Oh, and clear pink plastic (BC) doesn't have the same masculine evil look that clear red plastic has (Scourge).

    So yeah, RiD Scourge is my preferred version of the mold.

    RID Scourge. I'd go with the Hasbro version because I like the Decepticon symbols.

    Scourge. Cause I like Scourge but I don't care for G2 Prime that much.
