    I think Hasbro needs to look into re-releases/reissues. I would buy a reissue RID Scourge in a heartbeat,not to mention other fans and the casual TF buyer who's never owned it. Or a reissue of BW TM Megs. Again, both fans and the average TF consumer would buy that.

    We know we're getting a Universe Cyclonus. He is supposedly quite awesome.

    I'm also hoping for it to turn out to be a RID Scourge homage, but either way I'll more than likely buy him. A reissue of him would be just as cool as a new mold though. As for Cyclonus, from what I've heard he's supposed to be pretty good. Especially since he happens to retain his alt-modes general shape, and his targetmaster, Nightstick. As for the Starscream figure, I'm actually hoping it is a new mold Armada Starscream figure.

    Edit: I usually don't care about scale, but if it does turn out to be a homage to G1 Scourge, he's going to look a little odd next to Cyclonus, imo. Even weirder posed with Galvatron, but as I'm not going to be getting Galvatron, it doesn't bother me.

    If its RID Scourge I hope its a new mold and better than the original. RID Scourge is awesome and the Laser Rod mold is hard to beat, its one of the best Prime molds ever made.

    With that said I doubt anyone would want to pay $25 for it cab only, and the trailer was important, it was an awesome base and used in the cartoon frequently. Its not like other cartoons where it just fucking disappears.

    A new mold with better articulation(again hard to beat on the original), more realistic aesthetic and more refined styling would be awesome.

    Hell it could even make for a G1 repaint...and nearly all of us at one point wanted Laser Rod Prime in G1 colors. I'm surprised to say this, but the Laser Rod mold, as much as I love it, is dated, which is why I would prefer an all new one, especially for the price. If its brand new, then I can deal without the trailer.

    But in hindsight G1 style Scourge and Cyclonus would make more sense

    Yeah I can see it being Generation 1 Scourge. Along with Galvy, Cyclonus and the Unicron reissue they'll look pretty good together.

    I definitely want a G1 Cyclonus but I am with Split Lip in that I want a RID Scourge reissue. He was an awesome toy and the only RID toy I really like. Can't wait to see pics of the Universe Cyclonus.

    If it is G1 Scourge then that sucks for army builders.
    $30 per sweep? outrageous.

    Unless you used the Universe toy as scourge and then the titanium as sweeps.

    I'm hoping that Scourge is Motormaster. Because they did lose the trademark, considering that in Classics, Motormaster was Menasor. I could care less about Scourge the sweep after Titanium got it done. I'm probably the only one who thinks of Titanium as awesome.

    Yeah, we've known about Cyclonus since Botcon. He's going to look like is original self (he'll be able to ignore the 'real world vehicle' mandate due to him being released during the '25th Anniversary' portion of Universe) and he'll also be coming with his Targetmaster partner Nightbeat.

    Nothing aside from the name and price point is known about Scourge at the moment. To be honest, as much as I want an updated G1 Scourge out of Universe, at this point I don't want him to be an Ultra. Galvatron and Cyclonus are deluxes so do G1 Scourge later as a deluxe. I'm hoping that this guy is either RID Scourge or Cybertron Scourge (though Cybertron Scourge doesn't really need an update me thinks). RID Scourge, while the Laser Rod Prime mold is among my favorite Prime molds of all time... it is rather outdated now (though it does still hold up nicely against today's standards) and would benefit from some more modern styling and design techniques. If it's an all new mold I could also due without the cab. Not to mention, if it is RID Scourge, it's an easy repaint into Optimus Prime later on.

    Personally I wouldn't want a G1 style Scourge as I never liked the design or the character. The upcoming Cyclonus on the other hand looks amazing awesome! :D

    I agree that if it is RiD Scourge that he needs his trailer, and it has to be all crome. Prime never made real use of his trailer outside of holding Roller, but Scourge's trailer was a big bin of death and chocked full of his personal artillery.

    With this new Universe, and the included 25th Anniversary line, they're trying to incorporate all the best that Transformers has had to offer from the past 25 years. And I doubt you'll find many who won't agree that Scourge is one of the best and most memorable things to come out of RiD, a series which as of yet seems to not have been mentioned.

    That's what makes Scourge so awesome, he was really the first "Black Prime"...but he wasn't exactly a Black Prime. Though originally based on Prime in RiD, he was fused with numerous different things and swiftly became his own character and one of the best from not only RiD, but anything that followed it. He is, imo, the one most deserving of a re-release/new mold from RiD for the 25th.

    Cyclonus Yes

    Scourge Could be G1 or RID Hell Cybertron...but i doubt it's the cybertron one.

    Personally I've never seen RID Scourge as just another black Prime repaint. He's much more than that, imo. While he technically was a Prime repaint, it would have been different if he was a repaint of RID Prime. As it is he stands out on his own. If we are getting a RID Scourge homage in the Universe/25th Ann. line, I'll be really happy. I can't remember who said it, but someone said something to the point that the SDCC Nemesis Prime would render any Universe RID Scourge pointless. I really disagree with that, as neither figure would really look anything like the other. It's like comparing Universe Powerglide and Silverbolt. They just don't have enough in common to have any affect on the others release.

    there has never been universe scourge or cyclonus (unless you count botcon exclusive cyclonus as universe). there are plans for a classics 2.0 cyclonus but no word on scourge.
