    I've always liked Scourge. Didn't hurt that I only had his toy and not Cyclonus... although I always really wanted Cyclonus. But I like Scourge's colour palette and his awkward space soap dish alt mode.

    Btw, you need to turn his waist and legs around 180 degrees

    I've never owned this figure but I've always wanted to. There's something very fascinating about that early era of Generations with all of the experimental updated as you said. I have two TR Scourges, so if I ever get one of these it would default to being the real Scourge due to his unique appearance. Thanks for the review and pictures and reminding everyone of these awesome figures.

    Oh I know that’s not the official transformation for the waist and legs. I just thought it looked better so I kept it that way. Made his front more dynamic IMO. Thanks!

    I thought about making the Generations figure my official Scourge and the TR version a Sweep. But since I only have the two and don’t really need anymore, I made the TR Scourge my official one. I prefer the G1 aesthetic for the true Scourge. I do see how you would pick the Generations over TR as your official Scourge, once you actually own the figure that is. It would work better since you have more than one of the TR version so that’s cool. Glad you’re enjoying the reviews. Hope others are as well. There’ll be more to follow. I’m slowly but surely working my way up the Generations lines. Stay tuned!

    I prefer Gen. Scourge. As he fits in better with my Gen. Cyclonus and TR Scourge always looked second-rate in the TR line.

    Thanks! Can you tell if the shoulders on mine are fixed or if the need to be switched?

    I’ve never understood why they didn’t take this core design, add some of the clever design bits from the Masterpiece, and make it a Voyager. For bonus points, make the alt mode an F-22.

    I've got three Scougii, one tak and two Hasbro and I love them. They are like evil Cavaliers from the English civil war.
