No listings for a mainline scourge, no. Him and arcee don’t get mainline figures.
Does anyone else think he kind of looks like Bludgeon?
Good point… TLK Voyager Megatron was WAY better than the Leader class version.
Sure you are right about the dream part for customizers.... but only after heavy discount or clearance price.
Idk, what's wrong with these? They make okay disguises, I mean the movies they appear in take place in countries and places where cars like these are prominent.
Yup. I agree with everyone else. This really is a voyager class toy on a leader budget. Hopefully to fund Primal, but still.. Toss away that gun and he has a lower partscount, probably lower mass and overall lower complexity than Battletrap, who is sold at the voyager price point
Even if sold as a voyager, both modes are awfully compromised. To a point where I can't stomach it, like you said ^^
All Scourge needs to be better is new neck + head and more chunky legs. Hopefully DNA will fix this bot since it's close to being good but proportions and designing him on old concept are downgrading him a lot.
DNA Design just needs to do 2 things for this guy:
1. Give him a more accurate head.
2. Replace the rubber claw and grill piece with hard plastic. Both of which should be easy to do since they’re meant to come off.
this seems like an error
You sure about that buddy? In total only 40 Lamborghini centenarios exist of which 20 are roadsters and 20 are coupes. Hotrod here is a coupe, that car is 1 of 20... And now we talk about Dino/Mirage and there are only 3k Ferrari 458 Italias ever made (excluding the 20 or something china editions) ...
An occasional mention of "transform" as a verb doesn't harm copyright, but it's the consistent and repeated use that does. Chances are that the box will use "convert" anyway.
Why do people perpetuate this idea that their alt-modes are supposed to be low-key and indistinct?
"Robots in disguise" is very simply that. If you look at it and go, "ooh, cool car!" and not "wow, that's a 15 foot tall robot!", then mission successful.
Right from the get-go, we had race and rally cars cruising around residential streets. That's as conspicuous as you're going to get, without getting into the giant metal dinosaurs and the like.
That hasn't even been used as the franchise's tag-line in ~30+ years. The two series actually bearing the "Robots in Disguise" moniker actually did make the disguise somewhat of a factor, albeit in colourful, over-the-top settings where the usual flashy Transformers alt-mode choices would be able to fit in.
Ok he look way more cooler than the leak photo of him beforehand. Granted I assume it's just the camera they were using?
I hope we see leader class Optimus Primal in the live stream
Unfortunately that means adding another $20 to $30 on top of an already "generally considered overpriced" figure to make it look more like what one should expect from the base pricepoint.
Basically, $75 to $85 for a souped-up Voyager just doesn't make sense.
I think he got pushed back to another wave.
Ferrari 458 Italia is kinda common if you ask me. 3K is certainly a big number of cars, unlike 40.
You are right about the Centenario though, it indeed is a rare car.
He looks cool as hell. The MF Doom mask and Scott Steiner headdress are a true fashion statement.
I kinda dig how he looks like a kitbash
CW Megatron today would be Commander Class. We'll never get toys like that again.
