    Or are we just impatient?

    Impatient. The mold just came out not that long ago. They've been concentrating on movie and prime. I would imagine one of those would come out within the next year or two.

    If it weren't for him they would have made a Scourge repaint already.
    A Scourge repaint of G2 Generations Prime would be the only Generations figure I would have bought. RID Scourge FTW!

    Well that, or maybe they're just wanting to pace themselves well, possibly even by making this some kind of special edition release instead of just a retail repaint. Could be.

    It'll probably happen one way or another, but called Nemesis Prime. If not for Generations, then SDCC next year seems likely.

    No one has said because Hasbro hates us yet? It is either that, or like people have stated, they have been focusing on the movie line. We are going to have that next wave of Generations in the next month or so, and with any luck, going to get some announcements at NYCC this month (atleast I hope). It is painful that we havent gotten anything new in Generations in a while, but the break is nice.

    Yea, I hear ya there. I had him sitting in a box for a good month, and broke down on a boring night and opened him. Not bad, but not classicy enough for my taste. I don't mind though, my wallet has been fairly safe, and there is enough third party stuff to keep me busy.

    Psh... I love the break we're getting. The shit is going to hit the fan pretty soon though. Lots of 3rd party crap is going to hit at once... along with official stuff...

    Yeah, they did. But, the Classics Voyager Prime mold wasn't a homage to the G2 Laser Prime mold like RTS Prime is. That's why people want him repainted as Scourge, because Laser Prime was repainted into Scourge; it would complete the homage.

    Yep.

    Hasbro has trained us well, it seems.

    You're not alone. I'm soooooo impatient. If I would not have a life, I would probably start killing people to make the time worthwhile. I'm freaking impatient in regards of new Generations toys to be announced and much more impatient if they will release repaints of G2 Laser Prime (because I like the mold, but not the colors).

    Because Hasbro is deathly afraid to release a redeco of Optimus Prime as anything else but a red-and-blue Optimus Prime.

    They think it won't sell because OP is such a popular character with the kids, hence why they haven't released a single redeco of him in three years.

    As such, I am genuinely concerned we won't get a Nemesis Prime/Scourge redeco (personally, I think NP would be a better choice, since it would still have the connection to Optimus so hopefully the kiddies will eat it up. Hell, it's the only reason I bought Optimus Minor back in BW).

    God, I just want a Scourge/Nemesis Prime/Ultra Magnus redeco of pretty much any OP mold at this point. So sick of OP's red and blues.

    No, you are wrong, Scourge came out around the same time as G2 Laser Optimus prime came out in RTS. The lines ended shortly afterwards. There wasn't enough time between then and the movie line forcing itself over everything else.

    There is nothing stopping Hasbro releasing a repaint of Optimus Prime called Scourge. Give it time.
