Scourge ....."the tracker", leader of the Sweeps....
About this creation
Scourge is the reformatted form of the deactivated or nearly deactivated seeker jet Thundercracker (I think, hard to tell from the original animation) as seen in the G1 original animated Transformers Movie. He was reformatted by Unicron to lead the Sweeps. Along with Cyclonus and the Sweeps they were to become Galvatron's new Decepticon army forged of the broken bodies of the fallen Decepticons (Seekers and Insecticons). Scourge later became a Targetmaster on the planet Nebulos during the Rebirth Mini Series where his sidearm was transformed into Fracas, a Nebulan Hive operative.
My interpretation is based on the G1 Targetmaster characterization. The vehicle mode is as in G1, a futuristic space hovercraft (it kind of looks like a fat stardestroyer) This model stands about 10 to 11" tall in robot mode and is very poseable. Transforms from robot to vehicle without the removal of parts. He also includes Fracus a Targetmaster who also transforms from gun to robot. Fracas can connect to Scourge in either mode. As well you will notice Scourge's nice handlebar mustache(goatee) and beatie little eyes! Please enjoy and comment!
Watch the video review it will do the creation more justice than my poor photography skills. click here !
Very nice! i like the hands,the awesome wings,the face and just...EVERYTHING! I am new and i would appreciate it if you would look at my page some time and give some tips! By the way isn't his name fracas instead of fracus?
Definitely the new sockets are better, I lost track of how many of the old style I broke on the first insetrion of a ball joint! I really should have returned them to LEGO for a refund! But I still have a lot of them I bought on-line!

I see that you have the new ball joints on him do you think that they are better than the old ones or not? Nice MOC.
