    OKay, Scourge is probably my most nostalgic character I know of, and have been wanting to get him ever since I passed on him.

    Well, I can get a Black Convoy for $30 plus shipping, and was wondering if you guys think I should pull the trigger. I know the subtle differences between the two, but was thinking if it was worth the extra cash to get Scourge for those changes. Just thought I'd ask the ones with all the knowledge.

    Thanks.

    Not really IMO. I bought Black convoy and it is pretty much the same. A slightly darker sword and light piping plus a different logo on his shoulders is not worth the extra $20-30 for the RID Scourge. But it's all personal preferance honestly. If those differences are worth it to you, then you will find a way of getting him and this won't really change your mind. Either way, great figure and I totally recommend him.

    Edit: BTW, I'm suggesting you get the Black Convoy rather than RID Scourge just in case I didn't make that clear.

    Get him! I love my Black Convoy. He is sitting on his trailer on my shelf as I type. I actually prefer the Car Robots version to the RID one.

    Go for the cheaper, the differences are negligible

    Like other's said, either one is awesome. I have Black Convoy and he's great.

    BRILLIANT toy. After all trhese years it's STILL one of the most highly regarded Prime/Convoy moulds ever made. And Black Convoy/Scourge is a superb version of it.
    Go for whichever version you can, you will NOT regret it. Everyone should own this figure.

    Agreed 100%. It's one of the best designs, and one of the best colour schemes. Either version is great, there's not a lot in it between the two.

    Thank you all for the input. I decided that I will get Black Convoy since the differences are minimal and the price is a lot better.

    Personally, I prefer the look of RID Scourge. It isn't a huge difference, but it's big enough, imo, to make one look great (RID Scourge), and the other not worth it's weight in paper (CR Black Convoy).

    I bought Laser Optimus from FAO Schwartz on a vacation during x-mas (some evil woman actually shoved me out of the way in that store) and much later on I bought Scourge. Its such a fantastic figure that you can't go wrong going with ANY version of the mold! Period.

    Hope the deal works out for ya :thumb
