Default Scourge's identity revealed!

Hey, i can't find a thread i was reading a few days ago but i have the answer so if you're out there this should help!

The question was who is reanimated as Scourge - Thundercracker or Skywarp? It is impossible to tell from watching due to the colouring of Unicron's transformation but according to the special features on the Transformers: The Movie Reconstructed DVD it is Thundercracker

Hope that settles things.

More importantly, who couldn't figure that out due to coloration?

Yeah, it's a little-known fact that Unicron used to be an interior decorator, and was very into colour co-ordination...

Yes, Thundercracker is Scourge and Bombshell is Cyclonus.

Thank you sir, you've revealed the secret of our time.

It's more that if the question is "Skywarp or Thundercracker", it's piss easy as one's in the "Scourge and the Sweeps" bit and the other's in the "Cyclonus and his Micron Legend" bit... Well, to be fair, it's unclear who gets turned into one of former, but the Seeker in the latter sequence is blatantly Skywarp. And in comes the process of elimination...

Because it really matters, becuase the Decepticons bar Megatron weren't just used as blank slabs and given brand new personalities (well, okay, Cyclonus had no personality, but you get what I mean).

I found the answer in the section that gives biographies of the decepticons that survive the movie.

I don't care about the overwhemling evidence, Thundercracker is Scourge and Skywarp is Cyclonus.

Thundercracker and Scourge are blue

Skywarp and Cyclonus are purple.


Who really likes Bombshell more than Skywarp, anyways?

I also believe that Skywarp became Cyclonus. Why? Because the voices of both Skywarp and Cyclonus are deep. Okay, so it isn't overwhelming evidence but it just doesn't seem right that Skywarp would be changed into one of Cyclonus' Armada instead of the man himself after the roles he played during Seasons 1 and 2. Bombshell is also a good character but I don't think he actually deserved to be promoted to a role such as what Cyclonus had during and after the movie.

Okay, right... I like Skywarp too, he looks great (you're welcome, SCSW ), and Bombshell has a sex toy on his forehead. And you're entitled to your opinion and everything. But that's a panful of bumjuice.

Point the first/ No-one gets promoted or anything. Their physical parts are used to house new sparks, brains, whatever you choose. Whoever it is just provides the raw materials - it's not like Megatron = Galvatron, nothing from anyone's personality is carried over, except the usual Decepticon qualities of blind loyalty to an incompetent leader and being able to fly. Unicron didn't quickly nip onto the Archive, call up the TFU profiles and go "hmmm, this guy would definitely be the chap we're after for Cyclonus". Hell, there's nothing to suggest anyone but Megatron is even alive by the time they drift to Unicron. There's nothing in Season 3 or the movie to suggest Cyclonus, Scourge or any of the Sweeps have any memories of any previous lives (the only reference ever made across the board seems to be the controversial Target 2006 flashback Cyke has).

Point the second/ What role exactly did Skywarp play during Seasons 1 & 2? Flying around behind Starscream and always asking to use his teleport would be about it, am I right? Getting shunted into the background as soon as Megatron got fancy new troops like the Coneheads (seriously, demoted by the arrival of those freaks?) and the Triple Changers. Bombshell might not have been impressive, but he managed to be more useful than that (whenever the Insecticons felt like helping, at least).

Point the third/ the armada/Armada had a much more dignified history than Cyclonus anyway...

Yeah, but...but...but...

So like I said, I choose to believe Skywarp Became Cyclonus simply cause I like him better and they show him becoming a Cyclonus.

Why would Unicron need the bodies anyways? He made the new Decepticon ship without donor parts.
 

Come on and wind me up.
