    (We're starting this poll a little bit early before we release our special edition of TFWe, which is, as you may guess, a ROBOTS IN DISGUISE ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL. This will eventually be frontpaged, but vote away ... you never know who might be watching....)

    TFWe, in partnership with TFW2005.COM, wants to know what YOU the FANS OF TRANSFORMERS think. This is a simple poll.

    Would you buy a black repaint of the REVEAL THE SHIELD OPTIMUS PRIME figure named "SCOURGE"?

    Please check out the options above and vote! Thank you for your time!

    Nah, I'll pass. Not too big on buying duplicate molds, and I've already got RTS Optimus. Plus I don't really know much about the character.

    I don't get the whole Scourge thing. To me, Scourge will always be a blue space canoe with a wicked goatee.

    You have to choose whether you'd want him as "SCOURGE" or "NEMESIS PRIME" if you don't care. That's the gimmick of this poll. ;)

    Well I voted for the 'Yes, but only if named Scourge' option, but not because I care about the name, I would get it regardless of the name. But I would prefer it to be called Scourge, just because the character it's homaging is RID Scourge. I guess you might compare my reasoning to wanting Trailcutter to be Trailbreaker and Darkmount to be Straxus.

    You'll see soon.

    Basically, Nemesis Prime= generic evil version of Prime, one of many at this point.

    RID Scourge: bad ass character on his own.

    Yes. As soon as I open him I'll call him Scourge anyway.

    I don't care what he's officially called, I would definitely get him and I'd call him Scourge. I'm sure pretty much everyone would call him that anyway, as an example see Generations Darkmount. I actually forgot that was his real (as in official) name, because everyone, myself included, calls him his (proper) name- Straxus.

    EDIT: Looked back a few posts, and:
    THIS. This is precisely my point.
