    why on earth does EVERYONE mis-TF scourge's wings? doesn't anyone realize that they open up to form his wings? every time i saw pics of this thing, something just never looked right about him. of course that is until i got him in the mail. this fig is pure win. REMEMBER folks, it is TF abuse to follow Hasbro instructions. Zed

    Everyone knows they open up for his wings.

    Some people just prefer them closed. I'm one of those people.

    It's not necessarily mistransformation, it's more a case of the opened wings looking like garbage.

    When I get Scourge, I'll keep his wings closed. When I get his Ratbat retool, I'll leave his wings open.

    He looks better with the wings closed (as others have said). That's why.

    Also, this should go in the Toys section.

    I go by the instructions which say they stay closed.

    I open them because I think it looks better. Plus, I use the extra joint so instead of just being open and having a hole in it, the halves kinda overlap. Gets rid of that hole and looks like the cape has a slight wrinkle.

    I prefer the wings closed myself with a slight variation like mos people do. The wings are shown closed in the instructions, but many of us want something closer to the G1 model.

    Cybertron Thundercracker agrees.

    Deceptichage, looking at his pictures, the way he did it is the closer match.

    I love these threads where somebody wonders why nobody else is doing something that only they are doing... only to realize that everyone IS doing it already! :lol  How can you claim that "everyone is mis-TFing Scourge..." when you haven't even bothered to look around the boards enough to see that MOST people are TFing him with the wings open??

    Oh, and IMHO the open wings look pretty dumb... it doesn't evoke G1 Scourge! It evokes a big white rectangle on his back! I prefer not only closed wings, but "spread wings" via a little mistransformation as well :D 
    But hey, to each their own!

    IMO, jametron's wing layout is the best. Very evocative of the wings Sweeps sport in the G1 cartoon. Definitely better than the open wings layout.

    The "cape" look looks pretty crappy on Generations Scourge. It looks okay in the media and art, but it doesn't translate well to the toy. I love how it looks as wings rather than a cape. I compact the wings just a bit smaller by utilizing the double joint in and then pointing them downwards.

    please don't speak me as tho i haven't done my referencing or that i lack the knowledge of what i am talking about. however you or anyone positions the wings is not the point. the point is (to clarify to you specifically), the option for scourge's wings to open is a planned feature like RTS tracks wings (which was more aesthetically unpleasing than scourge's fully open, spread wingspan). and that IMHO by the way.

    and when i said that everyone was mistransforming the figure, i was referring to the published officials pics. whatever anyone's personal preference on TFing the wings are, so be it, position it how it pleases you. there is no denying Hasbro put that feature into the figure. there are panel lines and detailing and angular features to prove my point. and just b/c it was not listed in the instructions is a weak argument as everyone knows hasbro hardly ever documents, or takes pics correctly.

    This looks the best. Wings open looks stupid.

    The wings look awful open. Like big squares hanging off his back. A far cry from the devilish batwings he had in the toon. The folded up wings look better, like a cape or just traditional TF jetbot wings.

    Something else of note too. When Scourge is in plane mode, you can give him a gun by using the smaller detachable gun and attaching it to Scourge's head in the back.

    I don't have pics since he's in robot mode currently.

    I only open the wings to store the guns. Not my preference, plus he doesn't look like he can fly with those kite wings open.

    Yeah, count me in the "open wings look terrible" camp.
