    The Swarm, which was featured in the Generation 2 Marvel comic written by Simon Furman, was an evil "entity" that was formed during a period of time when Transformers were actually splitting in to two pieces, a "second generation" if you will. Every time that happened, a bit of this "entity" was released. It eventually made one big cloud and then started destroying everything. Optimus Prime then let the Swarm envelope him and the Matrix, thus showing the Swarm a side it had never seen before - goodness and all things yay, and then it revived him and went about being a happy Swarm.

    G1 Scourge is considered a "soapdish" because he's flat yet his edges are all curved and round. I think of him like if you take pizza dough and slam it on a table - there's your G1 Scourge. The upcoming Titanium Scourge is supposed to be pretty kick-ass though.

    See, you really asked 3 questions here, since the
    set of all shellformers and the set of all soapdishes
    do not completely intersect.

    I would like to disagree a bit with Kickback and say
    that the Swarm was /not/ presented as an evil
    creature. Transformers were given consciousness,
    conscience, and purpose by the power of Primus;
    deprived of these by its origins, the Swarm longed
    for them. Devouring the Transformers allowed it to
    satisfy this longing, but only briefly. The Swarm was
    certainly hungry and purposeless, but without
    malice or any real desire to do harm.

    Now for the other two:

    G1 SCOURGE NOT SOPE DISH WAAAAH SOPE DISH
    HAS TWO ROUND ENS AND PLACE FOR SOPE TO
    GO SCOURGE NOT TRUKK NOT DRAGGON EITHER
    WAAAAAH but the fact is, he looks an awful lot like
    an old-fashioned iron.

    G1 Scourge is indeed a shellformer - about 1/3 of his
    'boat' hull opens up and hangs on his back, but it's
    handled well, and the resulting 'wings' certainly do a
    lot for his robot mode, instead of being huge,
    unwieldy encumbrances like Thunderblast's hull, or
    randomly placed kibbles & bits like G1 Jazz's whole roof.

    I never considered Scourge a soapdish... I always thought he was an actual bar of soap.

    Wouldn't G1 Scourge more resemble an Iron than a soapdish?

    He looks like an iron, but not convincingly enough. He looks more like a bar of soap that is used more on one end than the other.

    Soapdish, Iron, half-used bar of soap, all I know is he's pretty cool in robot mode. Always felt his head was a bit large, though. Or is that is limbs being too small?

    The only problem I have with G1 Scourge is the faux facial hair. That just bugs the hell out of me.
