My only issue with Scrouge is I wish he had his rifle. Otherwise he will make a decent filler until I get a G1 Scourge again.

Hrmmm . . . not sure I like the flat purply-pink on Optimal. It looked a lot better with the vac metal.

I would say that's because he hasn't one.

You people seem to be under the misconception that the Titaniums are supposed to be toys.

They're not.

They're statues that happen to transform.

If they're supposed to be statues, then their joints need to be a helluva lot stiffer. Becasue as statues, they suck except in alt mode.

Yeah, actual statues have zero articulation. I mean, HOC figures have minor articulation and I still haven't heard anyone calling them statues.

G1 and Targetmaster Scourge TOYS don't actually show the face. It's covered by the grill which folds down on his chest. Cyclonus, however, has his face fully exposed on the bottom side of the jet mode, which really hurts that toy.

The animation models for Scourge has both 'head in' and 'head out' poses. (The former is somewhat possible with the toy, but not really that convincingly)

I can't believe I'm saying this, but... I agree with Nevermore! THERE! I SAID IT!


I think I'm going nuts.

Who, OpOp? Well in the world of BW where all TFs barely reach to the waist of most TFs from G1 era (I mean in the show, not the toys), Optimal pretty much IS just that.

Dude, that's bullsh*t. They're no more "statues" than any other Transformer action figure. The 3" Titaniums are statues, but the 6" ones are clearly not.

I like them both, I might get Scourge, but I think I'll stick with the Original Optimal Optimus.
