    SS86 is WFC, and therefore, CHUG. This has been said and reported over, and over, and over, and over again. They are spill overs that didn’t fit the usual figure assortments allotted for Earthrise and Kingdom. I mean, Scourge is probably the most glaring example of this due to his abundance of Siege ports on his body

    Plenty of inaccuracies exist in the movie SS line. Having a bit of differentiation would be stellar, purists be damned. Let’s not be selective here about adherence

    It doesn’t matter except scourge can hold his gun with two hands and sweep can’t. But that’s not my main point there. If they want to justify this as a new release, do more than switch hands, or just don’t bother with it and put more scourge on the shelf. It’s perfectly okay for Hasbro to do something like this, and it is perfectly okay for people to complain the lack of difference. That’s all.

    Well its disappointing but also not really done before. I suppose you could have Scourge play the "it was a body double" card whenever he would get killed. Or he could go full ninja and play the multiple copies trick with his minions.
    I'm sure the lore never went there, but that's my logic. Scourge is their sneaky bastard who gets away because you can't tell him from a sweep in passing.

    I had zero intention to pick up a Sweep, but I was curious to see if they would do something different. I guess it’s good for those that likes to army build. Also it’s a good opportunity for those that had trouble getting Scourge because some bought a lot of copies. The figure can pass for Scourge fine...it’s got a different hand... Now with the Sweep revealed, we can move forward and closer to the real interesting SS86 stuff : Dinobots and Insecticons.

    Hilarious that Sweep's boxart shows the one pose they can't do, but Scourge can (unless you mirror it).

    Well I ended up with 3 SS86 Scourge figures but was willing to sell 2 if the Sweeps were different enough to tell them apart. Guess I\'ll stay with what I have then.

    Studio Series 86 is CHUG. They were originally in WFC Part III, pre-Kingdom, before the theme of the story shifted to Beast Wars. They were moved out and Beast Wars was moved in. This is why Kingdom is less than half actual Beast Wars. It was an addition.

    The ultimate redeco troopbuilder that they havn't done is the mighty Guardian Robots/Omega Sentinels! Omega Supremes repaint.

    So my prediction I made about the Sweeps being a rereleased Scourge with little to no difference was correct.

    The whole point of the G1 Sweeps is they are perfectly physically identical to Scourge. The Legends figure with a new face looks weird and made-up.

    I think the different hand sculpt is a fair compromise; Hasbro surely knew people would be army-building with Scourge so he'd be hard to find.

    I really hope we see an actual difference between the two when the in-hand pictures come out.
    Cause if they really are as lazy as it looks, that's really sad since they've got so many options to make them noticeably different enough from Scourge so people other than collectors who "gotta catch em all" would want to buy them.

    When are these coming out?

    I never found a SS86 Scourge in my area and was wondering if I should wait for this Sweep if its not too long from now.

    I would assume so.
