BotCon 09 Toy 2 – Scourge

Scourge has been revealed at — and he’s a remold of Cybertron Sideways.

My initial reaction was “Ugh, why?”  But then I looked more closely.

It… works.  It does.  The rounded nose of Sideways’ vehicle mode is reminiscent of Scourge’s G1 vehicle mode.  And while I don’t understand why his beard is now white, Scourge’s new head is an interesting varation of the G1 character’s noggin.

I think I like this one better than Kup.

I did FAX in my order for a set when the registration forms were put online; let’s hope I got in.
