    I have yet to get a scout, and currently interested in Knock Out, Breacher, and and in need for a red one. I like Blue + Red + Yellow/Green trios, but I'm leaning towards Hubcap. Any ideas?

    I got Brimstone yesterday and he became my favourite scout. You can try him, but Breacher and Hubcap are pretty good too. Look out for Insecticon too, as I will.

    If I had to pick one, it would be Breacher. His head sculpt, the 3mm clip system, the range of motion, blue, and the APC alt mode really hit me nicely.

    Runner ups would be Skystalker (especially since he combines with Mindwipe) and Hubcap since I really dig the older car alt mode. I also can't count out the Insecticon since I have so much fun with them battling my Joes.

    I'd definitely snag Windcharger if you see him soon, that one looks great!

    Hubcap, hands down. He's become my #1 favorite Transformers toy of all time. He's fantastic.

    I absolutely love Breacher. Everything about him rocks. Even the lack of a thigh swivel doesn't hurt the toy all that much.

    Yeah, I guess I'll go for Breacher/KnockOut/Hubcap.
    I do like how they seem to be a trio (Breacher having a gun, Hubcap with fisticuffs and KnockOut looking like he can fly). Guh, too much FFXII Revenant Wings.

    That, and Breacher is blue/white, Hubcap is red/grey, and KO is black/green.

    I'm torn between Skystalker and Breacher. Love them both.

    Breacher. He and Seaspray are with my CUG figures.

    Hubcap and Skystalker are cool too.

    Okay, so now I'm torn between Sunspot (just don't like he's a Con), Knockout(looks like a con, but has the bot symbol), and Backfire (since red is covered by Hubcap)

    Def. gonna get Hubcap and Breacher though. What do?

    If you're going for a team, then I would definitely say Knockout would look best.

    Is Hubcap closer to an orange than red? all the photos I see vary, guessing from lighting

    It's an orangey red. I would describe it as candy apple.

    My favorite scouts are Breacher and Knockout. Though Breacher's transformation can be annoying at times. The Knockout mold is pretty awesome and he comes in that awesome black, white, and red color scheme in HFTD (forgot his name). I don't know why everyone raves about Skystalker. He wasn't all that..his feet bugged me for reason.

    Scattorshot or Breakdown. I love their alt-modes and they are very fun to play with. The way Scattorshot's guns transform is very cool, and he has that cool little snow-plow mode. I like Breakdown because that sports car mode is just so beautiful.

    Also, I like that vicious little guy Deadend, but you can't really go wrong with any of the scouts. Ejector just has so much novelty to him it's awesome.

    Hubcap, for me. I love that little guy.

    If we're going back in time, also Cybertron Armorhide (particularly in his black or Botcon repaint). :)

    My favorite would have to be Trenchmouth (love the red and brown with silver bits), and Firetrap( really like both bot and alt modes, lovelovelove his guns). Plus, Firetrap is a better G1 Brawn homage than the Deluxe, which feels and looks more like Roadbuster. Sunspot is nice though, I hate those too bright colors though.

    Skystalker/Sunspot
    Hubcap
    Knockout/Backfire
    Brimstone/Chopsaw


    I find Breacher i bit to finnicky for my liking, he's kinda got a Universe Galvatron syndrome.* A transformation that scream coulda been a Voyager Class.* Unlike Galvatron, I love the way Breacher looks in both modes and design wise.
