    So, back in the day when the Scourges were available in stores, I didn't have the $30 bucks for the proper RiD Scourge, and went with the Destructicon version. Who actually is kind of cool.

    BUT! Last year I was able to get a hold of a proper Scourge, and yeah, he is fantastic. Plus, I think I ended up paying about thirty bucks, including shipping and a Classics Cliffjumper...so, looking at this thread, I think I got a stellar deal.

    I really wish I had the space to display his trailer, as well. It's pretty much my favorite trailer/base deal, between the disc launcher and the missle battery...the air-launching missle never worked too well on mine, but, with all the others, he hardly needs it.

    Fun fact: The big double-barreled cannon that the Combaticon Brawl's got? You can peg that into one of the holes on Scourge's shoulders, if you want to go for the "ridiculously bristling with firepower" look...

    Man. How many other TFs could get a thirteen-page "He Rules!" thread?

    Okay. Will a crappy camera-phone picture do?

    Both pegs won't fit at once (which I thought they might, inspired me to try this), but it still looks pretty nifty in it's way...

    Yup. Or sideways or straight ahead, too.

    What I should do is get one of those knock-off Brawls so he can be set up with cannons in each shoulder...

    Definity pick one up if you get the chance, the tank might be a little hard to close up but damn is the figure good. Paint scheme looks great on him, from the pictures I saw of the Laser Optimus Prime, this paint scheme looks way better on Scourge. The articulation and build quality from this reused mold. are also very good on this figure.

    I just got mine today and kinda wish I'd bought a new one. Mine's in C 8.0 shape and for longevity's sake it woulda been a better idea. Either way, this is an amazing piece. I think I like the trailer more than the toy. It's got so much more playability than any other trailer in TF history. Nemesis Prime/Scourge looks 100 times better than any albino prime repaint.
