    Yeah. RID Scourge ruled. RTS G2 Prime? Kicked ass.

    RTS G2 Prime repainted as RID Scourge? A MUST. Even moar kick ass.

    Add repainted FansProject trailer and BAM perfect RID Scourge homage. I salivate thinking of this.

    If Hasbro does not make RID Scourge I will so totally tell my mom on them or something.

    I'm surprised it wasn't the SDCC exclusive given the two nemesis primes they already did.

    Noteing that fansproject has that Trailer armor upgrade kit in production for the newest G2 Prime. Their probably also counting on a Nemesis Prime redeco so that they can sell the new trailer in two decos.

    Even Mighty mugs nemesis prime makes sense as an exclusive.

    To be fair. Its a movie year and its probably something their holding off on to pad out a non movie year
    when they have fewer retailer exclusives full.

    It'll probably be an event exclusive if it does come out. Hasbro seems to be avoiding the production of "evil looking" Primes for the mainstream retail anymore. Even Nightwatch Prime wasn't very Nemesis looking (closer to Scourge, but not close enough).

    I'm guessing they don't want to confuse kids with a "bad" Prime, or some other nonsense.

    * Forgot about Takara. Yeah, they will do one for sure. (Or at least a similar idea.)

    Kids would love him. I want to be RID Scourge when I grow up. He looks so bad ass. Plus the sword!

    Don't doubt for a second they would. The light/dark hero thing is mega popular. It just seems like that outside of events like Comi-Con, and Takara repaints, there haven't been any real Nemesis/Scourges for aaages. Plus the extra head sculpt we saw on the Laser Prime instructions didn't look very Scourgey.

    I want one, and if Hasbro doesn't deliver, I'll make one myself.

    Plus, I'll be telling Shin Densetsu's Mom.

    It's all in the paint job :)  G2 Prime was used as Scourge, and I don't anyone back then realized he'd look so good :) 

    But yes, Hasbro/Takara should get working on a Scourge/Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy already!

    I hope it does happen.

    Assuming that Hasbro still has the mold for RTS Prime, I'm sure it might happen in the next line of Classic figures, if/when that happens.

    Wouldn't be hard to customize would it?

    I just told my mum. She just told me what my daddy always used to say.

    "Seriously, Toxitron first or get the bloody hell out."
