The new year is starting off with a bang as just in is our possible first look at the upcoming Studio Series ROTB Leader Scourge!
Although the pic isn’t the best, it still gives us an idea of what to expect out of the figure. We recommend taking this as a rumor for now until official confirmation is received.
Check it out and let us know your first impressions on the boards!
CMDstore also has him in stock if you want somebody from North America. Transformers Studios Series 8 Inch Action Figure Leader Class – Scourge
It’s not considered newsworthy unless it’s a store sighting. But it is good to see it’s starting to release.
Guys, I just found that you can get Studio Series 101 Scourge right now (while at the higher price), I believe this is worth sharing:

So much hype for comedic effect..
i have to agree, if hasbro or paramount really wanted this picture wiped from the internet, they would most likely contact folks directly to take it down or just start DMCA takedowns
Not like they would do anything to you. Hasbro doesn’t know who you are and isn’t sending out some secret agents out to get you.
unlikely, iirc the seller has sold a legacy knockout for $500 before, some folks are just that desperate for early toys
honestly i have no clue on why this is happening, maybe if scourge hadn't been officially revealed a month ago and was still unrevealed, then maybe it would make sense, but this hasn't happened for any other product that has leaked like this. maybe it's because paramount has all branches of Hasbro by the balls when it comes to ROTB reveals and god forbid they ever break an embargo even slightly, but that's just my little theory
Because people are afraid of Hasbro's secret ninja assassin death squads.
Okay but why are we complying with the takedown? TFW didn't sign an NDA or anything, why do the images need to be pulled?
I almost didnt take it down cause I thought it was a troll request but then I saw the news post get taken down
I thought the art looked so bad it must've been a fan creation, so it's wild seeing all the images taken down, confirming it was legit after all.
They have a certain period of time where they're not allowed to release the boxart, they accidentally released it already which is against their embargo and presumably could get them in hotshit with their boss.
So I was told by the Hasbro Korea intern (in my Messenger DMs) that the reason why the image is not allowed to be shared is because of "embargoes".
I wonder if anyone could help me to understand a bit more of this?
Yeah lmao. IMO what makes this funnier with Scourge is that his first leaked image was this
It's also been confirmed by some that we weren't even supposed to to see this exact picture.
Yeah, its honestly pretty funny and I struggle to find the point in removing images of the boxes and meanwhile Hasbro are perfectly okay with images of the toy itself being leaked out a month early. If I had to guess its due to NDAs and such. When someone posts images of a stolen toy they're not technically breaking an NDA, but when someone from Hasbro fucks up like this that would be a pretty big screw up. That's just my guess, its still weird though. With how little they do against toy leaks I just assumed Hasbro company policy was to not care about leaks to avoid a Streisand Effect.
It could be because Scourge might be voiced by a popular K-pop star in the Korean dub, so maybe that's why he's under wraps.
I love how out of all the leaks for them to take action on… it’s a box. And it’s for a figure already officially revealed a while ago.
It's frankly hilarious that the image of a stolen unrevealed toy in shambles is all fine and dandy for the world to see but its box art being posted way after the official reveal is an issue. Not saying there probably isn't a reason but shit's funny man.
