By way of Japanese imageboard 2Chan, an image reaches us of the Maketoys Nemesis Battle Tanker remold. Nemesis is shown in the story that accompanies the group's upcoming not-Fallen Paladin Chaos release, and appears to be an IDW Nemesis / Nova Prime inspired upgrade for the TFCC Scourge. He also seems to be sporting a cape and a lot of chains - either like some kind of dark lord, or possibly a pro-Wrestler. Check out the image attached to this story.

It was posted on the Maketoys Chaos/Paladin thread by Drillbit. Also, it's called Nemesis, as per the translations. Seal and Paladin is the story.

Though not sure why it would change giving this guy his own thread one say or another.

Oh, it should have it's own thread. Thanks for that.


From what I can tell, that Maketoys facebook page is actually being maintained by someone else, instead of Maketoys themselves.
FatedLazarus
Yeah, this guy definitely deserves his own thread. Scourge is already an expensive figure but when this set comes out I imagine it will shoot through the roof because this upgrade looks amazing...and has a cape. Flawless victory.
soymonk
That looks really cool in black. I might have to get a custom painted RTS G2 Optimus for this. It'll probably be cheaper than getting the TFCC exclusive.

............Where does the cape go in Tanker mode?

The set will come with a tiny coat hanger, that will be attached to the back of the tanker

Yeah, packed as a giant chute so that scourge can ram off cliffs for some wicked paragliding fun!
Jehsee
Great... another overpriced tanker for another super-limited/expensive and overall crap figure. I'd really like to own this mold, but I'm not dropping $300 for it plus the core deluxe. Will enjoy watching people post pics though...
deruberhanyok
Yeah, $160 for the Ultimate Gift Set + Dagger version (SG Magnus) at BBTS was a bit of a stretch IMO, but I can't see paying $250+ (figuring $140/$150 for tanker, and if you could get in on TFCC Scourge at $100 before preorders sold out) for it.

Looks spectacular, though.
opt1musaber
Wait, so this is basically a limited run to a limited figure? Boooo

But the Ultimate Gift set was less than $20 at local stores (US).
deruberhanyok
Nuts. I don't ever recall seeing it in any of the local stores here - I thought it was Asia Exclusive for retail and online only for US?
Composite Ghost
I remember being blown away when I saw the Magnus and Shattered Glass tankers. Not getting that same feeling here..

Yeah, you're right, the Gift set was sold online. But it went as low as $15+.
SCPrime
not a surprise. But tfcc scourge likely to skyrocket in price now. I'm predicting around 250 to 300. SG Magnus is around 250 and its not as popular as Scourge.

The speed at which I will buy this will break the sound barrier, the speed of light, whatever other speed things I can say ... that's how fast I'm on this.

I can see myself overpaying for TFCC Scourge just so I can unite the toy with this tanker remold. Just so freaking sweet looking.

That'll be my backup plan, in case I can't get the TFCC Scourge at a decent price.
SG Roadbuster

Oh... I don't feel so bad then. $20 is a bargain for two deluxes and two legends.

Anyone have any idea when tfcc scourge will be shipped after some delays? Will he be out by this summer with the other subscription figures?

sub service fig was suppose to come out one fig every 2 months. But with the delay not sure if they will stick to that or go one every month or even two every month depending how when the first one actually ships. which fig in which order is a suppose to be a surprise.
daimchoc
It's been rumored to be out in the fall of 2013.
Delta One
I'll just buy a custom scourge which should be cheaper than the TFCC version.
Predaking
Hopefully there'll be a KO Scourge in the near future... along with a KO SG G2 Prime so I can get both without taking a second mortgage out of the house.
darkshot8
I like the battle tanker sets. I think the battle tankers made a sort of poor figure (g2 laser prime) into a much better figure... I cant stand these repaints, Yes i know scourge and UM are cool, but with g2 laser prime mold!?!?! and than have to pay 150 + for the new tanker sets?? I think I bought the first battle tanker set at bbts when it was on sale for 75 ish.. this looks like a good set... but the mold sucks and way over priced for what it really is.

Really? I thought the G2 laser prime mold was excellent, in fact my only gripe was that he wasn't a voyager.

For the most part... if you take the regular prime and paint his blue bits black... most likely it'd suffice. The Tanker retools added even more parts to the set... making A LOT of the original details outside the thighs and forearms obscure. This is partly why an RTS or CH Prime can work quite well inside the DIA Tanker.

There's a decent chance that the folks making KOs of the Tankers might also be making KO's of the Botcon figures as well. So getting KOs of the Deluxe G2 Prime mold might be another route eventually. (Not that I'm encouraging KOs... but the "exclusive" or "convention" decos are really quite overpriced IMHO.)

+1!

(are we still doing "+1" or is that not cool anymore?)

Something about the colors on the original US release didn't do it for me, but the figure itself is awesome.

Another pic.

Be careful. The more he gets of you, the stranger it feels.

Yeah, it's not. Which is why I asked for the mods to update the thread name.

This should be: "Maketoys Battle Tanker - Scourge/Nemesis remold"
deruberhanyok
Something about Giant siding with Nemesis, and the Type 61 clones were created to stop him? Or maybe it's the other way around, Nemesis created the Type 61 clones from Giant, and now Giant and Battle Sentinel are trying to stop him?

Anyone got a translation on that? I'm super rusty.
Scaleface
Be nice to get a translation and put it on the wiki.
TruStarscreamer
man I may get this and just HOPE for a KO Scourge...

KO Scourge or just repaint an RTS Prime.
daimchoc
Thank you MODS for the thread name change!
BlueAngel_Bolt
I can't explain how happy I am to have a Scourge on preorder. This set looks drop dead gorgeous.

Also, DAT CAPE.
CodeXCDM
...I can see someone repainting this version (or a KO rather) into Vader for some reason... >_>
Slimaximus
Ok, now we just need a takara/ehobby release or KO release of the TFCC Scourge coming out.
TheGreatScrotum
Yup, I too am relieved to have TFCC Scourge preordered. I was lucky when someone dropped their preorder at BIG BAD. I even upgraded to "collector" grade at checkout. It was only 2.00 extra, and I wanted to make sure the card wasn't bent or the figure was in any way mishandled (plus they ship their collector grade articles in a box within the shipping box - like the shitty movie, Inception).

Where are the pre-orders for this, Daim? I did a quick search and couldn't find them...
SCPrime
so just going by the one pic, I see a new head and the cape. Anything else new compared to the previous versions?

One set of spikes... and a set of Skulls to hold the cape up it seems.

So it has a Spawn or M. Bison (Dictator) vibe now that I think of it...

None yet. I was being facetious.
QLRformer
That's quite a cool design. Would love to see it become official so I can buy it.
