    It wasn't supposed to come out today, but OK. I think that there is a second part too.

    Anyone else think that they did a better Scourge here than the movie?

    A little, yes.

    Was it goofy? Certainly, but I couldn't help but find it a little endearing, more than I ever found the movie edgelord.

    As far as I'm concerned this is entirely 100% canon and nobody will tell me otherwise.

    I certainly liked the different voice fluctuations. I never thought I'd see Scourge losing his mind at Peppa Pig.

    Not really ? I feel like if we had a goofy-acting Scourge like this people would've hated him anyway, but they only now call him better because they didn't like the movie version or idk.
    This ad was really cool ! Peter Cullen doing the intro voice was very nice, I want more TF content like this !!

    Neat to see them using the models again and for promotion and probably will continue in the future like they did with bbm Bee’s model.
    Little more personality but too cheesy for me despite that being the angle they go for with the ad.

    Yeah, he actually feels like he has a personality here beyond "villain".

    Honestly, I think I would've ended up liking him a lot more if he WAS just a thug trying hard to look edgy but he's just kind of a hothead. Maybe they could've given him a more sympathetic angle with him and his guys just being unwilling prisoners / servants of Unicron, maybe they were a part of some colony world that was wiped out and they were given the choice of becoming his heralds or joining their people.

    Maybe Unicron proposes something to them that he never intends to fulfill.

    He starts out as a rival to Optimus but when Prime see's that clearly Unicron is just manipulating them he tries to help them out.
