    It was posted on the Maketoys Chaos/Paladin thread by Drillbit. Also, it's called Nemesis, as per the translations. Seal and Paladin is the story.

    Oops I haven't been following the paladin thread.

    Though not sure why it would change giving this guy his own thread one say or another.

    Oh, it should have it's own thread. Thanks for that. :thumbs2: 


    From what I can tell, that Maketoys facebook page is actually being maintained by someone else, instead of Maketoys themselves.

    Yeah, this guy definitely deserves his own thread. Scourge is already an expensive figure but when this set comes out I imagine it will shoot through the roof because this upgrade looks amazing...and has a cape. Flawless victory. :lol

    That looks really cool in black. I might have to get a custom painted RTS G2 Optimus for this. It'll probably be cheaper than getting the TFCC exclusive.

    The set will come with a tiny coat hanger, that will be attached to the back of the tanker :lol

    Yeah, packed as a giant chute so that scourge can ram off cliffs for some wicked paragliding fun!

    Great... another overpriced tanker for another super-limited/expensive and overall crap figure. I'd really like to own this mold, but I'm not dropping $300 for it plus the core deluxe. Will enjoy watching people post pics though...

    Yeah, $160 for the Ultimate Gift Set + Dagger version (SG Magnus) at BBTS was a bit of a stretch IMO, but I can't see paying $250+ (figuring $140/$150 for tanker, and if you could get in on TFCC Scourge at $100 before preorders sold out) for it.

    Looks spectacular, though.

    But the Ultimate Gift set was less than $20 at local stores (US).

    Nuts. I don't ever recall seeing it in any of the local stores here - I thought it was Asia Exclusive for retail and online only for US?

    I remember being blown away when I saw the Magnus and Shattered Glass tankers. Not getting that same feeling here..

    Yeah, you're right, the Gift set was sold online. But it went as low as $15+.

    not a surprise. But tfcc scourge likely to skyrocket in price now. I'm predicting around 250 to 300. SG Magnus is around 250 and its not as popular as Scourge.

    The speed at which I will buy this will break the sound barrier, the speed of light, whatever other speed things I can say ... that's how fast I'm on this.
