Transformers Bot Shots Scourge: Disappointing
Sadly, with how pumped I was over the excellent execution on Shockwave, the first Bot Shot I picked up was Scourge. After removing him from the package, I realized how goofy he looked. I thought "well, shucks, his alt mode looks pretty cool on the back of the package, maybe I'll just keep him like that." I've done that with other transformers, so I'm not above just leaving them as vehicles (Blitzwing's sweet Tank Mode jumps to mind here).
Sadly, he won't stay in has alt mode (a dragon). One of his spring loaded arms overpowers the catch, meaning that it will not stay locked into position, and the second you let got, he pops into robot mode. Bummer.
This may be just a fluke defect in the one I got, but be warned.
