    Does the head on anyone else's Scourge come off really easily? Lately it seems like if turn his head even just a little bit, it starts to lift up off the ball joint. It's not super problematic or anything, just kind of weird that it's only started happening after a few weeks of owning him

    Hope this will finally be in Stock. Pre-ordered him in October. Never have I waited this long for figures.

    You could always just hold off for the Sweep instead if you're not having any luck.

    Yeah. But there's mold differences. I'd rather have my Scourge pre-order fulfilled. Wish I ordered it someplace else..

    Scourge is such an underrated character imo. He has a cool design and for me has an almost vampireish look. Him and cyclonus broke away from galvatron during the marvel UK run but he was at his peak comic book wise during target 2006 even if megatron ended up taking him out.....

    Yes he really did.

    Just noticed one of the hinges on the wing pin is cracked. Ugh.

    He really does. He looks like a Scourge, and seeing a legion of these ghoulish dudes with bat wings, Dracula collars and sweet frikkin' beards definitely evokes the name.

    Got SS scourge yesterday, but encountered few issues, this is what i did to fix them, might be helpful in case you have the same problem:
    overly tight wrist swivel: the cause was that the mushroom peg is painted, making it thicker than it should be.
    solution: Scrape the paint on it does the trick.

    overly tight tigh swivel: the actual problem was not the tightness. In fact, chance are the inner part of your tight has developed some crack. The real issue was that there's a corner on the rotation part that bumps against the tigh, preventing it to move properly.
    solution: Take off the tigh from the mushroom peg, then cut the specific corner, as such.

    "spring loaded" ankle tilt: the cause here is that part of the feet extension on top pushing against the inner part of the shin.
    solution: Open up the shin, then sand down the specific area showed below, while keep testing it until those parts no longer pushing against each other.

    Loose hip joint: the usual nail polish trick should work fine.

    Has anyone else come across a SS 86 Scourge with a different head? One of the ones I received from Amazon a few months ago has an opened mouth. He looks as shocked as I was when I opened him. 013c904c9bcc126e31110612af2ce8e26bd42fc746.jpg

    "You got a purdy mouth!"

    Seriously, though, I've only seen the normal facesculpt in the wild. And that's distinct from the Sweep mold, too. Looking closely, it's almost as if a hole got punched right at his lips. If I squint, I think I can see the edges of his frown between the sides of the mouth-hole and mustache. It looks intentional, though.

    Very cool.

    How many Sweeps do you guys normally get for the purposes of army building? I have one SS86 Sweep for the novelty of it and it does look nice on its own distinct from Scourge, though I'm not sure about getting more. Just curious as to how many Sweeps people normally get if they want to get multiples.

    For the Deluxe versions I always bought three, for one Scourge and two Sweeps. This time, I bought one of the Voyager and am going to use the old Deluxes as my Sweeps.

    Anyone still needing this guy? Got the Sweep version because I vastly prefer the colors on it. If anyone wants a loose Scourge hit me up. Looking for retail price plus shipping in the US

    My Scourge has a serious crack on one of his wing hinges. Might to replace him with a sweep. Helps that I too like those colors better.

    Anyone not want their backdrop for Scourge and want to sell it to me? Mine came with the wrong one (BB movie Thrusts) and it is sold out everywhere. Just a shot in the dark!

    EDIT: Got one!

    If you're not too picky it's identical to Sweep.
