    Scourge looks like a McD's toy.

    Prime looks much more impressive!

    Yeah. And it looks like he may suffer from the same bum hip joints as WW Prime.

    So, wait. Robot mode, tank mode and plane mode. No beast mode.

    Why not just call it Optimal Megatron and be done with it?

    The prototype on Optimal does show one thing, the shoulder cannons can fold back to give him a more show accurate appearance... now if the cockpit could sit higher up on his chest we'd be made.

    The lack of a beast mode on Primal is disappointing. Granted, it's not like he ever really used in on the show, but of the three alt modes, it was the one that made the figure uniquely Primal. Pity to have lost it.

    He looks much better painted.

    that's ok, the best mode is not all that special, i am not that disapointed and i think it actually benifited from the loss, plus that would probably of made the toy a lot more money with the extra plastic and such, and if they were just going to make it smaller, why not just, re-release it, in the first place? it would take less time and effort to reissue it then it would be to make a new smaller one.

    i am happy with both molds, they both look great, and scourge looks a lot better then the old flying-bathtub guy did. plus it will be cheap enough to get more then one of. so you can actually have a fleet of them.

    No beast mode? Ehh..... it's not like it would've taken much to include an ape head...

    Including the beast chest and the mechanics to have both would have taken quite a bit though, and this one couldn't have the hinged thumbs that let the big version do that.

    I like both. I have yet to see a single six inch figure in my area though.

    Optimal Optimus looks awesome. Scourge, on the other hand... I'll pass.

    These seem to have a much better metal to plastic ratio than the current Titanium figures that are out. Scourge looks just about perfect and shouldn't suffer from froppy arm syndrome. Optimal...meh. That character always looked too goofy and strangely proportioned to me. So far it's the only Titanium I'll pass on.

    i hate how they added those huge friggin pegs on Optimals hands...ugh...like comon...

    they could have just went the original way with the pegs on the forearms....and they kept the two little peg holes on the shoulder for the armor to go lol.

    As for the jet mode, its mistransformed though in those pictures I think.

    No way in hell they could have worked ape mode into that, so I don't mind. It's like how the RiD Prime is only going to have fire engine mode and robot "super" mode, much like the spychanger sized version.

    Could Titanium Scourge mean that Titanium Galvatron is a possibility? That would rock hard!!

    A G1 Galvatron would be sweet. We also need a RID Galvatron and Beast Wars Dragon Megatron, more show accurate, to go with RID Prime and Primal. As far as Primal and Scourge, both look great. My main complaints about Scourge is that he will not have a weapon and an articulated head. Still want both. Plus we need G1 Cyclonus and Ultra Magnus.
