    Hello TFW!

    @BotCon is running a contest on Twitter. Simple. In 140 characters or less, write the bio for Shattered Glass Scourge. One winner will receive a 2009 Sweeps figure, who JUST so happens to work as a GREAT repurposing for Shattered Glass Scourge!

    Follow us on Twitter for all the details.

    And also, look for some more news about the BotCon 2012 set theme later this week!

    I dont really care about the toy but I decided to write up alittle bio on twitter.
    Scourge is an individual, always trying to stand out and be diffrent from the other Cons.Be it with his music or his perfomance art. #SGWED

    Seems like a pretty fun contest though I am sadly not a part of twitter yet...this may change my mind.

    (I also bet the news tidbits about Botcon 2012 set will be neat.^^)

    Getting a good bio in under 140 characters was tricky but a fun challenge. Good luck to everyone who enters!

    Tweets are too short for a good bio. I barely got two sentences in there. :lol  I needed at least four with a few more words in each to really flesh it out.

    Well, here was my stab at it.

    "@BotCon A gentle sage without ambition, SCOURGE taps into the mystic force of PRIMUS to locate Autobot threats across the universe #SGWED"

    Inspired by "The Burden Hardest to Bear," the fact that he looks like a wizard, and of course his connection to Unicron and "tracker" role.

    I see why they decided that the Sweep would be SG Scourge (he's Scourge in "Kup" colors like Cyclonus is in Hot Rod colors), I don't actually like it. I would have preferred the Generations design in some sort of warm color, to compliment SG Cyclonus. (I think that a mixture of deep and bright reds would look great on that mold!)

    The difference is that they already have the Sweeps sitting in a pile whereas they'd have to actually have the factory manufacture Generations Scourge in another color.

    Got in my entry...decided that he was originally a red and grey version of Prime, but reformatted himself to show Decepitcon allegiance and disassociate himself from the Autobot leader.

    Yes, I am aware of that. :lol  Just thought it worth mentioning, because that was the image that popped into my head when I was writing that bio.

    It is kind of short, but ah well, decided to make mine, a little bit of Kup and Scourge, since Cyclonus was a mix of Hot Rod and Cyclonus :) 

    An old warhorse with a million tall tales, Scourge isn't the tracker he was,but he can still hunt Autobots with the best of them #SGWED
