Transformers United – SD-21 Decepticon Scourge
April 8, 2011Posted by on
I am just having so much fun with Scourge from the United line. First impressions, flip vehicle over, expect to see robot kibble. Reaction, WHOA! Nothing! Totally clean with proper landing gears. Let’s just say this piece of art is wonderfully engineered.
I would like to comment that the vehicle mode is one of the most well done figure till date. Very compact and everything unfolds during the transformation. Peek-A-Boo mode is a throwback to the G1 days. Like it alot.
I adore this figure so much. Much better then the Generations counterpart. Few reasons why I prefer United over the Generations brother. Firstly, it would be the better attention to paint details. Things like the red eyes & claws as well as the metallic blue chest meshing with the vibrant blue plastic for the shoulders and such. Definitely beings more depth to the figure. Also, it has to be the smaller Decepticon emblem compared to Generations. Generations had too big an emblem I must say.
Some nitpicks though. The figure is lacking of a good forward & side arm articulation. I don’t like to pivot the entire shoulders together just to raise his arms. His shoulders are just too clunky for it to look natural.
Finally to end off, Scourge is a overall excellent figure. I love the accessories, transformation as well as the robot mode. Dual wielding gunslingers are just too awesome. If you need a Scourge and his Sweeps this is definitely the Scourge. Generations simply have only Sweeps. United Scourge is highly recommended especially if you like the Galva-trinity.
