Lately I'm liking no cape
I think no cape looks more sleek.
No cape... I like the folded wing look. Something about that little turned-down tip on Scourge's wings makes him look so much more sinister than he would have without it. I really dig this figure.
No cape. Although when I get my United, I might do "cape" on my Generations ones to differentiate the sweeps.
No cape makes him look more menacing to me.
Cape. It's the only way I can get him to stand up without falling over. He's too damn back-heavy.
Probably no cape. My biggest gripe with the figure is that Scourge's wings were such a key part of the character, and they didn't really pull that off with this toy. I like the idea that the "cape" is closer to having wings, but it just doesn't look that great.
i prefer no cape...to mee he looks sleeker that way
No cape! I like 'em like this!
(Good LORD my pics are so incredibly horrid when compared to GogDogs!)
All you do is refrain from folding in the panels that tab into his back (gives him less backpack too!) and fiddle with them to find a way that you prefer... I like to angle them in a zig-zag kinda way to emulate his G1 animation models very bat-like wings. and then I still angle the bulk of the wings downwards... again the pics do not show this off as nicely, wish I were better at detailed picture taking
Judging by your pictures alone, no cape. But that may be a bit unfair as that picture is far more dynamic and overall interesting.
Anyway. I plan on getting several of these, so I may just mix it up some between them.
He looks better with no cape.
No cape. But when the Ratbat redeco comes out, he will be posed with cape.
I'm convinced the "cape" isn't even supposed to be a cape. I believe it's just a consequence of the in-wing weapon storage and the wings are supposed to stay closed in robot mode. Looks pretty bad with the wings open in robot mode.
No Cape, I'm thinkin'.
I prefer cape. To me it just looks more g1, not to say the no cape look is bad.
There is a double joint in the cape hinge that's only purpose is to put the wings like that and hide the hole formed by it by collapsing in on itself. Otherwise it would have been a simple hinge without molding a separate part.
I voted cape, only angled down more like the no-cape pic.
I hate the look of the "cape". It looks like two chunks of jet that are slapped together, rather than one piece.
