Thanks for the tip! I'll have to do the tin foil mod (already painted his eyes ages ago).
Toon colours. From their Weibo page
Edit: maybe more an X or Metallic finish. Took the T to denote toon
On what planet are those toon colours? Big disappointment.
That'll look better alongside FT Cyclonus and Galvatron. Might pick one up for Scourge and use my current Scourge as ghost Starscream alongside the Sweeps
Not understand the silver though. On second thoughts maybe I'll just pick up a cheap first release from someone that wants to swap.
Where can we pre order these!
Oh and I swear if they haven't fixed the feet transformation imma flip out
This is why I'm so disappointed with it. The toon's legs are grey, as are all of the accents that are sky blue on this. This is just a darker metallic repaint, which if the paint is anything like the first release won't look pretty for long. I was really hopeful for this, but now I'm gonna have to wait for Fans Toys.
Meh I don't mind it, and actually the toon had all those light blue parts, not gray. Either way I was always planning on getting the Fanstoys version of Scourge, as he is likely to be the superior version, but was gonna keep the XTB ones as the "Sweeps" as I don't like having the same mold over and over so if there are any differences in the deco I am game. I will probably get just one of these, sell one of my Regular ones and eventually get the FT. that way I will have Three different looking figures: FT will be the main bot Scourge, Regular XTB will be sweep one and This one will be Sweep 2, only looking to have 3 in total
They were blue in Headmasters but definitely grey in the original movie and toon (at least in the main).
Metallic versions of these doesn't excite me here but I hope they fix the paint chipping issues.
The colour on the one we've already got is perfect to me. Although not toon accurate.
Mixed feelings on this one. I always thought Andras nailed the colour scheme first time, and looked fine next to Sovereign and Quietus. This seems too dark, plus that silver part on the top of the lower leg (that should be blue) is driving me mad.
On the other hand, this gives me hope that #1: Abaddon isn't quite dead yet, and #2: There'll redo Eligos in a similar way. I always loved the Eligos figure, but the finish on it was awful. A new paint job and that guy would look awesome.
Yeah... Bummer. While I was hoping the reissue would be painted, I really don't like that deco choice at all. @ibot what's the idea behind this deco? Why silver? Why is the blue so dark? It's not accurate to either the G1 toy or the cartoon, so... what's the point?
Huge disappointment here as I've been wanting a Scourge for ages and was hoping that when XTB said they would reissue Andras it would be along the lines of their toon Trailbreaker. This isn't even in line with the deco style of anything else XTB have released.
This looks like they saw people fawning over the metallic paint on Fanstoys figures and got too carried away.
What a flop. Hopefully the original release will start to appear on ebay at lower prices so I can get that at least.
This is great for people who still need this character. X-Transbots nailed it! No one else should even bother.
Lol no. I prefer the first version but not enough to buy it
I actually think this looks damn sharp!
@ibot any changes besides the paint job? I remember there was discussion about making the foot transformation smoother with a rerelease. Thanks!
I too appreciate the updated colours. Pre-ordered Andras awhile back hoping for some an updated paint scheme.
Wasn’t expecting a Sweeps three pack re-issue though, that’s gonna set me back a bit.
Ya know, they may not sell them as a three pack and may just sell individually. That would be really nice.
@ibot will the Sweeps have different face sculpts like the original releases? In the photos they all look the same.
