    Is the sweep different at all? Looks exactly the same to me

    The only difference is that one of the hands is opened. He’s pretty much a repackaged Scourge.

    I think I "need" Scourge and seven Sweeps but yeah mixing fists is a cool way of making them unique. Maybe I should buy at least one more Scourge so Scourge and two more Sweeps can be unique and five of them can have the Sweep hand set-up.

    I don't know, it's possible that people have examined and discussed it over and over again on the 14 previous pages, but I'm too lazy to read them.

    Is it possible it might be sans battle damage? Because that would be great (yeah I could buy a Kingom one and try to remove it but would rather wait and get a clean one if that is possible).

    I can’t say for sure but I think he may not have the battle damage.

    But but but but Starscream doesn’t have a waist swivel and he needs a waist swivel because it won’t be accurate without a waist swivel and do you think Hasbro is gonna make another with a waist swivel because Starscream needs a waist swivel OR ITS NOT GEEWUNNERS AKKURATE

    Pictured: two toys with identical design philosophy. That's why Studio Series figures cost the same, and definitely aren't sold at a higher pricepoint.

    Oh, so the hand molds are switched? That must make them completely different figures!

    To be honest I’m abit disappointed it’s just a fist change, would’ve loved different blast effects for each sweep instead of the same one from scourge

    Seriously though, 15 pages and going and no one noticed the difference immediately, or just plain sarc? Was Scourge widely available? I got mine from Amazon and 2 from Amiami. Too bad Hb didn't recycle the Legends Hm retool that kinda looks like Maccadam.:(

    Seems weird the Sweep is a new release as opposed to just repacking Scourge in a new case. I’m sure the swapped hands and new packaging doesn’t cost much but it still seems like repacking Scourge would have been cheaper? Idk, whatevs

    I would think the cost is the same. They clearly planned this from the beginning. Hasbro just does not seem to care anymore. We got so many of that was more or less the same Megatron for the last two years. The passion they seemed to have during T30 and PW3 is gone and now they are just shitting out the same things year after year and accross "different" lines. Yeah I bought most of the Megatrons and Primes and they got me hooked with Seekers but I'm fed up with this bull shit and I'm done with this franchise.

    What are you so mad about lmao. The Sweeps are the same as Scourge so they just repacked him with different hands and changed the box. What's the big deal? In fact, it would have been lazier of them to just rerelease Scourge with 0 changes. The fact that they're trying so hard to release definitive versions of the G1, Beast Wars, and movie guys as well as make fun obscure characters shows that they care more now than ever before.
