    So does this mean Cyclonus and the Sweep can hold hands?

    I'm actually happy the sweep is identical because I never found a scourge in my area, just a bunch of hot rods. And I don't remember the sweeps having any difference anyway.

    At least the Takara Legends Titan Master Sweep had a different mustache.

    If the Sweep unit is literally identical to Scourge excluding new tooling for new hands - or heck, maybe even unused hands that are already secretly on the mold runner - what are the chances that the Sweep unit won't take up one of the mere six mass-retail production Voyager slots that Studio Series gets annually that even straight repaints like Skipjack use up?

    After all these years, a proper promo CGI render of Jolt. Wow.

    The Sweeps being identical to Scourge in appearence is accurate, but I still think it's disappointing. At least change the facial hair a bit for some differentiation.

    But I'll probably still pick up one or two. May have Scourge holding his gun in his closed hand and the open hand supporting the barrel, with two Sweeps standing behind him in the same, mirrored pose.

    Awesome they're calling him the Sweeps now.
    Now the true King of the Scourge name can come back into the fold.

    Are they swapped? Couldn't they just both be closed?

    The angled shot of the package shows the right hand open, you can see the unobstructed pink fingernails peeking out.

    Yeah, weird that we got SSBB-74 before SS-74. Hasbro is drunk again!
    (Now who’s the re-issue, huh?)

    Cool, I was wondering what the Sweeps will look like. I bought 4 Scourges so I already have the Sweeps, I'm glad they aren't different besides a hand swap, so I can pass on Sweeps if I want and still be happy.

    Although I think there were a few episodes or scenes that had 4 Sweeps and Scourge for a total of 5 instead if I wanted to add another one.

    What is it with everything having to be a retool of everything else? Why not just give him a new mold? I swear every time a new figure is revealed people talk about what it's a retool of or what it can be retooled into...

    If they wanted to do anything different with the Sweeps, not paintimg the nails would\'ve been all I\'d do.  Although then you couldn\'t swap the hands sooo

    Lol!

    I'm not sure if I want to buy a Sweep now.

    That's just me though, since I don't army build.

    Especially since we usually do get new moulds, so it's not like there's a precedent for retools being over-abundant. Even BB Starscream, a literal Blitzwing retool in the movie, was an all-new mould.
