    first post.

    His color scheme's got a little bit of Primal in it, actually just the legs. Maybe the small size too.

    Nice review, I'm gonna have to re-watch this when it's available at 720p. It's a neat little figure, but I think I'll wait for the United version.

    Yeah, sorry, youtube's being wonky. It told me it was processed and in HD, I actually WATCHED it in 720p before I made the link live, and then once I did it said the video was unavailable and processing again? Weird. Try again in a bit, it seems to be working now.

    I'm not impressed with this figure, in this paint scheme. But, when there is a RiD Scourge/Nemesis Prime repaint, I'd get that in a hot second.

    I think this guy looks great. Can't wait to get him. That matrix gimmick is a nice touch.

    This will be rad if it gets a Scourge repaint. As it is, it is a great G2 homage. Will buy on sight.

    Really nice figure actually. I wonder, since the sword handle is so long, can he hold it in two-handed poses?

    Got a can of black Krylon waiting for him..........

    Hmmm....the shoulder joints are not as great as Drift's. If he raises the sword, the whole bulk of the front cab rotates. Looks kinda weird.

    I think the truck mode would be much better if they har a little fade from black to blue instead of such an abrupt change

    They better be planning a rid scourge repaint!!!

    I agree..the sudden switch in colors is what kills it. The vehicle itself looks rather nice.

    I'm going from awesome to meh to back to pretty cool with this guy!

    So how big in comparison to the original is he? I just traded for the gun to complete my G2 Prime, so I can't wait to get him and attempt to attach the trailer. The Matrix gimmick is an incredible touch.

    I'm with you with not liking the paint scheme in vehicle mode. I wonder if United will have a better deco. The arm kibble is my only real beef with this guy.

    Looks good, but I would only buy it as Nemesis Prime or in G1 colors. Those colors look bad.

    Not feeling the colours on this one, the head turned out much much better than I had initially thought. But I agree with you on the wheels, that's fantastic engineering right there. I surely hope they have a regular G1 colours release or a RID Scourge to follow this up.

    Yeah, A better paint scheme would make this a pretty awesome toy.

    I think the paint job would look much better with black flames on the blue doors. It would blend the colours together similar to the red to black on the hood.

    Other than that, I'm really liking this guy. I just love the fact that he has dual wheels out back, is this the first TF that actually has the dual wheels like a true semi-truck?
