    Was watching some season 3 episodes today and got to thinking....
    it would be cool to have the sweeps to go along with generations scourge.

    I know you could just buy 3 more generations scourge figures but what i was thinking was a scout class twin pack thats more or less the same as scourge but with maybe a few subtle differences.

    What do you think?

    People would only complain that they're shorter than Scourge, I imagine! :(

    Watch season 3 again there is absolutely no difference between Scourge and his sweeps.

    If you want them to be different buy one Scourge from Hasbro or TakaraTomy and the rest from the other company.

    I think you should just buy a few more deluxe Scourge figures. :p 

    Having a bunch of smaller Sweeps just makes Scourge's relationship with Galvatron look like a case of domestic violence. He sets a poor example for their children.

    I plan to get a few and "shave" them to alter the faces some.

    I have a preorder for a TakaraTomy United Scourge to be "Scourge," and I'm planning on picking up 2-3 Hasbro Generations Scourge figures to be my "Sweeps." Easy. Done. No need for a boxset. :)

    "It would be nice to have Sweeps, but we don't need them!" was too Tigermegatron-ish.

    Tigermegatron lol. Haven't seen him around in a bit...

    And about the sweeps.... They're supposed to look exactly the same. Just buy a bunch of Scourges.

    Also, do we know if the Takara and Hasbro versions will be different? Have we seen pics of the United version?

    Haven't seen pics of the United version yet. I think it's going to be another case of minuscule differences. The Hasbro version doesn't have any noticeable paint apps missing like Jazz and they can't really change anything to make him even more G1 accurate like Tracks.

    I guess they could make his talons slightly brighter. *shrugs*

    They'd be completely different figures that are half the size. Those are hardly "subtle differences."

    Buy a couple more Scourges.

    Yeah, bright pink talons and takara might go for that metallic paint and maybe a brighter white plastic.

    I don't think they'll use metallic paint.

    I got 6 titanium Scourges back in the day. Now that this new Scourge is coming I think my other six homies will make perfect Sweeps.

    Scourge will do me fine.


    I'm trying to remember what the Sweeps actually did other than get in the way and take a pounding.

    Anyone?


    Since the plastic is a little off white, i'm wondering if it's the Hasbro version in strong lighting?
