    so what is with the crap of no one knows the origins of scourge the hunter?
    he falls from the sky on his prey...kills them and moves out...

    the man of mystery?

    So is hasbro trying now to disavow the G1 origins of scourge being made by unicron?

    I think they mean that noone knows in the transformers world. Why would they know. OK, just Galvatron and the sweeps and Cyclonus knows. But the rest of the Autobots and Decepticons don't know that Unicron made him.

    That's my story, and I am sticking to it.

    ALSO

    His origin can be made to be ambiguous. There are quite a few incarnations of G1 Scourge (along with everyone else) that can be taken from either Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW comics, not just the original G1 TV series.

    I think the new origin is a reference to his...dw? Version. I think they meant to reintroduce unicron at the time but they wrote scourge as if being displaced n never followed thru the plot line.

    Maybe they don't want to mention Unicron so people don't get their hopes up for a Hasbro release of the new one.

    I think that's right. It's pretty much a bio sin to talk about characters that aren't toys.

    Unless you were there I doubt many would.

    Most TFs know Galvs was Megs 'cuz he's the big bad 'n all, but I doubt Scourge and Cyclonus were publishing their life stories.

    Pretty sure this is the likely 'in-universe' explanation. It's not like Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge ever went around constantly announcing their origins, and no one else was around when they were created, so how would anyone else know where they came from?

    'Out-of-universe'...it's not like the bio says Scourge wasn't created by Unicron or anything. Going back and checking the bios for TFU 2.0, Galvatron's bio uses a similar 'no one knows where he came from' line, while Cyclonus' bio specifically mentions Unicron. With the current line(s), it may just be that Hasbro wants to keep Unicron out of things for awhile, since the character/concept was prominent for quite awhile.

    Just looking up the definition of "Sweep", I could see the following fitting Scourge's troops...

    Scourge could use his troops to clear/sweep an area of Autobots or to search/sweep an area for hidden targets. "Sweeps" isn't really grammatically correct, but it sounds better than "Sweepers" (IMO), which would fit better grammatically.
