Scourge Of The Studios

Another way cool part of Hasbro's most recent Fan's First Friday was looks at some of the new Studio Series toys. Next year the line will shift away from the live action movies to focus on the 1986 movie. G1 is a heavy focus of Generations as is. You might ask yourself, well how did I get here? How do I work this? Where is that large automobile? At this point you've started singing Talking Heads and I'll kindly ask you to stop. 

What is a shotgun shack anyway? What are you doing with your life?

Despite the G1 focus of Generations, this is Studio Series, meaning a higher level of screen accuracy. So unlike that Hot Rod you got a few years from Titans Return, this one will look like the one that was fishing with Daniel. I'm excited for this. The original movie has always been one of the benchmark moments of Transformers for me and the generation of fans I come from. Even now as I'm getting older and it's various flaws are more obvious, it's still one of the more important parts of Transformers.

 

One of the new figures I'm definitely looking forward to is Scourge. The trio of Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus have always been something badass to me. I've always thought of them as Galvatron the evil king. Scourge the dark wizard and Cyclonus as the dark knight. They're some Dio song turned into robots.

One of the more important details of Scourge was thankfully not left out. I'm talking about those pointy pink finger tips. Most people ask why he has those and it's simple. When you're sleeping, he sneaks in your room. Then he slips one of those long pointy finger nails up your nose and pokes your brain. True story.
