    The swords;

    (Left; Black Convoy, right; Scourge)

    I think Black Convoy is slightly cheaper and much easier to come by? As for as I am aware of their quality is the same.
    Good luck and hope you'll join the club soon :D

    The pictures showed it best. They are mostly the same except:

    Clear parts on B.C. are pinkish, Scourge is a deeper red

    B.C. has foil stickers with flipped G2 Bot symbol, Scourge has paper stickers with G1 Decepticon symbols (and tampoed on doors of truck.)

    B.C. has G2 Autobot logos molded on shooting discs (holdover from G2 Optimus), Scourge has the logo removed (and sword tip is more blunt.)

    I think that's most of it.

    How about the Korean release? I assume it's the same as Black Convoy, no?

    I've got Scourge and there's no problem with material quality at all. Seven years later and no sign of aging or any kind of wear on the stickers, chrome on the trailer is perfect...

    While I prefer the deeper red of Scourge, I've had a fondness for the Combatron insignia. Mostly just that I love the G2 logos, but y'know... Anyway, far as I've ever been aware the difference between Black Convoy and Scourge is just personal preference. Just be aware, I'm pretty sure the Korean version uses the Hasbro modified toolings, with the rounded sword tip, and blanked discs. Don't remember which set of stickers it used.

    Everyone needs Scourge/Black Convoy. Including you and you!

    VictoryLeo19, glad to be of service :) 

    I don't know about Korean release, wish someone will show us a picture.

    Personally I feel RiD Scourge is superior. Darker red plastic in comparison to pink, actual Decepticon insignias compared to upside down G2 Autobot insignias...I had no idea of the differences when I got my Scourge in 02 but I'm so glad I went that route after seeing comparison pics shortly after. One of my favorite TF toys.

    If I remember correctly it's the same as Black Convoy but uses RID Scourge's sword (I think its pink tho.) Sorry, I sold mine a couple of years back :(

    The Scourge trailer has remolding to reinforce it and in doing so prevents the air missile launcher from closing the right way (the turret piece piece is backwards), so when its closed the top of the missile gets bent.
