Here's a little tidbit of news for you from the Transformers Collector's Club comic panel - at the end a teaser was shown of something to be revealed tomorrow. What was shown was artwork of Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime as Robots in Disguise Scourge. The tease was that we need to come back for the roundtable tomorrow to find out more - but early indications suggest we are getting Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime as Scourge!!!

Ha. Oh my.

I'm glad I'll be able to purchase one...but I was hoping for a retail release in Generations next year.

If it is that, someone at the club must really like that mold.
Valkysas
That's bullshit.

That's something so popular that it needs to be standard retail.
Anguirus
No joke! Well, except the joke about how fast it would hit the boards. Of course not sure there's any topping SG Optimus as a villainous use of this mold...

And/or they really hope people that swore off the club after the credit card debacle come back for Scourge/Nemesis?
GrimlockAutobot
I hope he isn't the membership figure. That way if he's just a regular exclusive I won't have to buy him.

I hate the RTS G2 PRime mold. It is fugly and at the very least should have been a voyager.
Ra88
You have GOT to be kidding me.
Scantron
Sounds about right. Something that's fairly popular and has a high level of demand behind it...exactly the kind of plastic crack FunPub needed to release to get everyone to magically forgive and forget all their various screw-ups over the past several months.

What are the odds that Hasbro releases Nemesis Prime (with a predominantly black/red color scheme), whereas the presumed 2013 Scourge has the teal blue, white, etc?

A lot of people have said they would prefer Scourge instead of yet another Nemesis Prime, so maybe this is what they're banking on.
ZacWilliam
I have no interest in this.

Sorry Scourge/Nemesis bores me.


-ZacWilliam, would I renew if the new toy doesn't interest me... Not sure...

Well, theyre definately milking it like a seeker.
Scaleface
What is Hasbro thinking in not making that toy a general release figure? Have they forgotten anything pre-Bay and post G1 at this point?

I can already hear the arguement from the club... Hasbro wasn't going to make a Scourge, so the ONLY way you would see one is if Fun Pub made one.

And it's a floppy mess - gah, I hate that mold too.

If that's the case, I wonder what Shattered Glass Scourge would look like, because you know it's coming.
GENOZAUR
Whooooo hooo

yes yes yes yes yes scourge is still kicking autobot tailpipe yes

i love that guy

he is everything that prime nemesis prime shoudl develope into asa sentient living charater over time

It's going to hard for FP to top the 2012 club exclusive. Runamuck was probably their best freebie so far, since it had Over-Run (Runabout) to compliment it.

I can't see them repeating that great of an exclusive with the G2 Prime mold again.
exclusacon
Thats cool...what will be the purpose? don't exclusives have to connect with the comic storyline?

Well you see, you take the black, and you make it white!

that's okay. It has to be an exclusive of some sort.

He'd look like armorless Regular Ultra Magnus, a ghost-white Prime (maybe with red highlights.)


-ZacWilliam, that would interest me a little more than Scourge/NP actually.

Pink and white. His name would be Lilly.

Odds of Hasbro and TFCC releasing similar figures in realtively the same time period?

Somewhere between slim and nil.

In other words, ain't gonna happen.

I'll buy it. I LOVE the mold!

....TFCC Private meeting....

Big boss: We really screwed up guys, we're losing a whole lot of business because of the security issue. How can we rectify that?

Useless Peon #1: We could have Scourge-

Peon #2: Nemisis Prime.

Peon #1: Whatever. Be our exclusive next year!

BB: I like it.
OwlLasers
Yay! I don't have to renew next year! haha. Runamuck was a must, but I have no personal connection to Scourge/Nemesis Prime. Big ups for the people who are excited about this one though.

Wowwee. Enough people were hoping it would have been part of the Botcon set or 2-packs, maybe FunPub jumped on that for this coming year.

A retail release would have been nice. They did a retail release of Nemesis Prime for Universe and Armada.

Same could go for Runamuck/Runabout. Those were very popular, and Hasbro could have produced their own versions.

I think FunPub knows they blundered big time, but perhaps this is their way of making up for it? I don't know really, I tend to be hopeful and optimistic. Maybe I'm too naive for my own good.

My Little Pony Colors.

My question is... is this the Free Figure or something that will be up for purchase?

This seems a likely possibility, I know if its the freebie for next year i will be very tempted to join.

Oh, he wouldnt be a femme bot, he would be worse. One that loves shopping and watches bravo all day. That will be his special power.
Kylehudson14
Finally! Too bad It'll be a club exclusive
General Tekno
So if this is the freebie, it's a BRILLIANT move, objectively speaking.
Jetbolt
Would have to guess that a iconic character outside of G1 would end up as some slaggin exclusive. I'm shock we got Hot Shot in Prime, though Hasbro sure love the Bumblebee mold.
FMA1987
HOLY SHIT He will be bought!!!!!!!
theestampede
thats a load of shit.

I want it, but I'm not paying exclusive prices for him. fuck that.
Kaijumaster
WOW! Well if Thats the membership figure they just sold me on signing up.

Preeeetty much. Immensely disappointing that this won't see a mass retail. I was holding out hope that maybe, with him not being a Botcon '12 toy, we had a real shot of getting him as part of Generations 2013. :/

Blegh. Maybe Hasbro will release a PRID Scourge that's a repaint of FE Optimus. That mold is probably a better fit for a Scourge update anyways, as amusing as angry midget Scourge is.
Deadboy
I'm pretty unhappy that this means Scourge will be unlikely as a retail release. And I was so hoping to not be joining the club next year, but this will make it VERY hard to resist. Hopefully it won't be nearly as much of a disaster next year as it was this year...
Wheeljack_Prime
Well that's bullshit. That's the whole reason I passed on the mold the first time. This shouldn't be an exclusive.

This.

I told you all this would happen while the whole credit card debacle was on. That the club would grab something huge to hook all those people in who swore up and down they would never renew.

And they did.
Shin-Gouki
As much as I would love to have it, I am done giving FP my Credit Card
Omnius
A shrewd move on the club's part!
