Does anyone else want a Macabre repaint from Genrations Scourge?
Macabre - Transformers Wiki
That would actually be really cool. I'd buy it as long as he at least got a new head sculpt.
interesting idea, I like it and would buy one.
Wouldn't that be funny, if Impactor's killer got a toy before he did
Slight fix. But yeah, that'd be the PERFECT repaint for Scourge. I remember finding myself wondering as I read the Last Stand of the Wreckers if Macabre was related to him .
No,it's way too much of a OBSECURE character.
I don't mind obsecure characters getting new molds or repaints. as long as their not EXTREMLY OUTFIELD OBSECURE characters.
You might be right. However, if the toy looks cool enough, and if the Scourge mould is well received, kids will want it. I've never heard of there ever being a Transformers Tomahawk, and I still bought one because he looks cool. Same goes for a few other obscure-to-me characters made into toy forms. How many Ratchets, Megatrons, BB's, and other main-stream characters are kids going to buy over and over again. Some variety and fresh characters keeps things interesting.
That's what I was thinking too. There aren't many overt "big name" characters that come to mind that can be repainted from Scourge other than the Sweeps (who'd need new heads anyways), so if it's an obscure character and the toy still rocks, or is even an improvement, hey great. Go for it.
I would absolutely love that, OP.
We've got a Straxus toy now. The field has been opened for these obscure characters. However, I feel the Wreckers (Impactor, Mostly) have a far higher chance of getting toys.
I'd love to see this guy realeased alongside an Impactor. It'd be perfect
i agree. i never heard of Straxus until this year
Hey, would you rather have an obscure comic book character with an interesting story/history/purpose behind him or a new made up character that gets wasted by means of a horrible death no less than 3 issues after their debut in a post ROTF movie-tie in comic?
Macabre has been in two of the greatest Transformers comics ever. He nearly assasinated a high-ranking Autobot council member in Target: 2006 and led the Wreckers' Decepticon opposites in LSOTW. If you don't know who he is you only have yourself to blame.
I'm not into him totally. But then again, I will bite when I see a NEW figure that has been retooled or spotting a new head sculpt.
Him or Devcon would be perfect for scourge. I'd be down for either one, preferably both!
first person to say "repaint him into a sweep" gets a shovel to the face!
yeah, either devcon or macabre......devcon STILL needs a toy gosh
If we get Macabre, we need Impactor.
Yes, I already suggested a Macabre repaint in another thread - if they're going to repaint stuff it might as well have a semi fitting name.
Speaking of obscure characters, I was horsing around tf.wiki & chanced upon Ultra Trion.
Now I'm hoping he gets a toy!
