    So being a big fan of season 3 i really wanna get myself some sweeps but how is the question.

    Do you think Hasbro will make a sweep?
    Should i just buy multiples of scourge?
    Will reprolabels make stickers to personalise each sweep/ make the scourges look different?

    Let me know how you feel about the whole situation

    Sweeps looked identical to Scourge, so just buy a few more.

    Agreed. I don't think we will get "Sweeps" as a separate release. Get a few more Scourges, and make one stand out a bit more with Reprolabels (if they do a set), or get the United one.

    My plan was to get the United Scourge to be Scourge and get three to four of the Hasbro release of Scourge to be Sweeps.

    Just buy a few Scourges and you'll have your Sweeps.

    My brother is planning on doing that once Scourge comes out.

    See I've taken preemptive maneuvers here. I think Scourge will be hard enough to find, let alone 4-5 of him for sweeps. I've bough 4 HFTD Sunspots to serve a Sweep "drones" painting is underway now!

    This is what I'm doing. I'll probably give Scourge one of the Targetmasters from one of my extra Cyclonii, and the Sweeps can keep the guns they came with.

    Getting one United and a bunch of Hasbro versions, cause for me, the Sweeps arn't gonna look identical. They didn't look identical in the Botcon set, and that's good enough for me. To each their own, but that is atleast one time that goes against this "they all look identical" rule.

    Other than that, a nice reprolabels set would work for me, but by the time that arrives I will have probably been into it for $20 anyway, so for me, it is the United.

    I'll probably get four Scourges myself. I'll figue out some way to differentiating the 'real' Scourge from the rest. Have we seen pix of United Scourge? If so, is it THAT different from the Generations version?

    No one ever questioned the Sweeps looking the same as Scourge until the Botcon 09 set. And considering how unpopular that set was, I'm surprised that idea actually caught on with the usually slavish Geewun crowd.

    Ideally what I really want is Scourge + 3 clear Sweeps to really differentiate them. But of course I'm not buying 3 sets of Decepticons, and I doubt anyone wants to give up Scourge in the set.

    I'm not completely sure I'll be getting extra Sweeps. I know I'll get Scourge, but not sure if I'll get his crew.

    Y'know, out of all honesty, I always did think it was strange, even as a kid. They had nothing to tell them apart from Scourge, except for their voices. I can picture the amount of comedic hijinks it caused when Galvatron looked at one of them at called him Scourge, while it was Six or Seven.

    I always thought it would be nice for Scourge to have just a slight difference from the Sweeps to identify him.
