    I'm fine with Scourge being a little meatier than the Sweeps. He did obtain the Matrix after all- the effects of that power are lasting. ;)

    Thanks for posting.
    @ibot any word if the feet transformation has been improved?
    This is good for those that have missed out earlier. QC wise, this mold was XTB's last solid release IMO.
    Make sure you guys who missed the first run grab this and the swarm pack and don't wait for them to dry up.
    I don't recall the link saying anything about this reissue being "final" as in no more reissues coming after this.

    I'm still considering an Andras to lead the swarm but only if there was some difference, nothing major, obviously, but something to distinguish him would be nice.

    the transformation of the feet is a little complicated but those spring ratchets in the feet just make sure it can standing solid and pose firm, it's not going to change at the reissue.
    thanks guys, it's a decision now for reissue, we would keep eyes on the qc of those stress marks on the fingers, and make it more perfect.

    Thanks.

    You're reissuing the swarm set? Very interesting if true!

    I hear you but that's how it was in the cartoon. You might want to jump on it anyway so you don't miss this run. You can always mark it up yourself later with labels/stickers, reprolabels set etc. The swarm has slightly different mouth expressions IIRC.

    Very tempting, especially if Abaddon finally shows up.

    So are there four total figures in the movie, or is it really Scourge plus two sweeps? I can't recall. If you buy the three pack are you basically getting three Scourges but no targetmaster?

    it's scourge (andras) Plus three sweeps (curse, wrath, bane). the sweeps are basically scourge with a different face sculpt and no targetmaster, but they come with other accessories.

    probably yes.
    factory schedule really occupied, so we never know what will happen after this reissue.

    They will this run, but I doubt anything afterward- FT's Scourge will be just around the corner.

    This is VERY tempting since I missed out on the last swarm set....sooo many pre-orders placed lately ugh! lol And it doesnt help this being the last run of this set.

    Man I hope this is the case with FT's Cyclonus as well. I haven't heard any updates.

    When they are first made, there are only 3 sweeps (made from Thundercracker, Shrapnel and Kickback) as there were 2 Cyclonuses (Skywarp and Bombshell).

    But immediately after that, when you see Cyclonus and the Sweeps flying onto their new ship and then throughout the rest of the movie, there are four sweeps.

    I'd bite if they were a bit cheaper. They are totally cool but take up so much. Space, hard to justify...
