    Honestly... purple wouldn't be bad on Scourge. As then he could match up with Galvy and Cyclo', whom are purple. And, as purple has always been a regal or royal color, it definitely flows with the whole unicron protege thing.

    i think the generations alt mode with blue front (feet mode) wouldn't look as nice though. might try this, just for kicks. also we can see the red claws. lol

    Sanch, you been drinking again?:lol 

    Seriously though, maybe through a combination of animation error and certain artwork that maybe he could be seen to some as a slight purplish blue. You people do realize, not everyone sees the same thing.

    blue daltonism is pretty hardcore. he's probably in the middle ranges.

    I think it has to do with Animation error, there was also scene with Frenzy and Rumble in the 86 movie in the beginning battle, where Soundwave releases Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, & Ratbat, there's that scene when both F & R are transforming and they are both red, but when they get to where Blaster is, it's blue.

    I think what sancho also meant is that there was that one scene on the ship where Unicron would do that flashing red thingy torturing Galvatron and Scourge was helping him get up, he sord of look purple but it had to do with the color variation of that scene. IDK... just my thoughts...

    The picture's hue is a little red, but Cyclonus is definitely another color than Scourge, even in this picture. Scourge is blue, Cyclonus is red uh I mean purple.

    The people suggesting you're colorblind aren't necessarily screwing with you. You haven't specified if you -always- see Scourge as being the same colors as Cyclonus or it's just a few scenes where it looked that way. If he always looks purple to you, then you might actually have some manner of colorblindness. It's not like it's something to be ashamed of. Also, what other people said about having a bad monitor might be true too, though that sounds more like screwing with you.

    I'd try what Seali_me says and ask your wife and daughter. Women are less likely to be colorblind than men, so if they're seeing something different from you, that'd be accurate.

    Also: YouTube - Arting with Jim episode 1 - Colorblindness

    ^

    i asked my wife and TF buddy to check the correct colour for my devastator. i don't trust my eyes for reds and greens. :D 
    i wish i could find the pic i took to show the difference. i saw the huge difference after taking some pics. i couldn't sleep because of it. good thing its been corrected. :) 

    yes i wasn't kidding since from reading his posts and from that answer of his from the picture above. sounds like daltonism to me.
