    This badboy seems to be high on everyone's "to get" list, since he seems to go fast whenever someone has him on the Junk Exchange. Can someone hook a brother up with a detailed review/analysis of him? He looks better than any Black Prime repaint (with the exception of one being released at this year's botcon, but it wont have a trailer!)

    Edit: saw the Classics Prime repaint on the botcon page, which made this one an easy buy :)

    Once I saw him on the show I was hunting for him and very glad to have him twice (one in bot mode the other in truck) Maybe the nicest "Black Prime" out there.

    I don't have Scourge, but I do have Laser Rod Prime (from G2) and he kicks absolute arse. Frankly, as much as I love Classics Prime (and I do), they could quite easily have just redecoed LR Prime (even trailerless) and I think most people would have been happy.

    I haven't seen enough RiD to know that much about Scourge, and generally don't have any love for evil Prime clones. Even so, if you don't have the Laser Prime mould, for that alone snap it up.

    There's no real difference between Takara Scourge and Hasbro Scourge, is there? I'm finding the Takara version on eBay for a lot cheaper than I was expecting it to be.

    Which sucks, because I have a cable bill to pay in a week or so, and I'm this close to using that money for evil, instead of good.

    I think the colour of the clear plastic is different, Takara Black Convoy's is more pinkish I hear. Black Convoy's sword end is pointier as well. Insignias are also different. Scourge has Con one and Black Convoy has an upside down G2 Bot one.
    (Hope I am not wrong, I don't have Black Convoy.)

    Everyone needs Scourge/Black Convoy :)  I need a MISB one as a spare myself.

    all of that is true, plus a few things:

    BC's chest stickers are silver, Scourge's are flat white. BC's discs have the G2 Autobot symbol on them (which is why they used that for his insignia, because they didnt want to remold it) but Hasbro DID remold it, into normal flat discs. Scourge has a Decepticon symbol on his truck doors, BC has none. I think BC has some painted detail on his truck mode that Scourge doesnt.

    from what I hear, the Korean version actually combines several of the differences between the two, making it unique as well

    I own Scourge, but I really wish I had the Takara BC. I think the pink and silver are more aesthetically pleasing, and I like the idea of his faction being "anti-Autobot."

    Its one of those figures that I would buy if I didn't spend that money on something else G1. He's a cool looking figure.

    Don't cheap out and buy the Destruction Scourge, it's not that great. The RID one looks wayyyy cooler!

    Do ya really need someone to like, lend ya the money??!?!?! get him.
    I bought mine from TRU and never regretted it.
    if i had more room, i would like to set his base mode up. i like it, really.

    extremely easy to transform, sturdy as hell robot/truck, the trailer is all chrome (am considering "modding" mine since i read a review that said a sticker or two on the side would have been nice, so i may do that) and it looks nice.
    i don't care that much for the missile launcher, but i don't use it, and so it isn't a minus to me.

    great figure all around.
