    4Ever is doing Scorponok next (followed by ROTF Megatron- the CG is also on their facebook page).

    Their Prime 2.0 (the heavy reworking of DMK 01) is easily the nicest Transformers piece I own. Very excited to see them doing some completely original ones. Looks like Scorponok is very close to happening. I'm not sure how far behind Megatron is. I'll probably get Scorponok, but Megatron will be a must have for me.

    These are non transforming. Basically these seem to be the Dual Model Kits we all wished Takara would do. :D

    Here's a link to their facebook page. Some stuff on Megatron is below.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the movie look, but gotta say - that's pretty awesome looking!

    So, what is this exactly, is it just a Scorponok from Transformers 1. It looks cool

    And it doesn't transform. Granted, the fact the original had a GOOFY AS HELL transformation was one of the biggest complaints about the toy (the other one being the broken tails).

    It seems worth adding, they recently anounced they'd be doing Blackout as well (I think after ROTF Megatron, ROTF Optimus, Sentinal and Ironhide). There's a rough CG mock up on their Facebook, it's not much to look at.

    I didn't start a thread since the ones I've been doing for these guys stuff have been largely ignored. But BLACKOUT is COMING!!!!! :D :D :D

    Start the thread anyways dude. I appreciate it and would never have known about this if this thread wasn't here. I would love to see what Blackout looks like, I'm still a bit confused about what 4Ever does. Do they make model kits or do they make 3A type figures on a smaller scale. Hey I think that is the 3A Prime in the pics

    Thanks!

    Hopefully I'll get a Blackout thread going tomorrow. The Prime in the pictures is theirs. It's Prime 2.0. It was their first figure. They took DMK 1 and improved it significantly with paint and remolding at least half of his body panels. I have one and it is the nicest piece I own. These are pretty much high end Dual Model Kits but they come assembled and painted perfectly. Scorpion here is their first fully original articulated figure since Prime 2.0 was built directly as reworked KO DMK 1. It looks like Megatron will be in scale with Prime (meaning slightly bigger), but they've only shown completed legs, arms and a head. We haven't seen him finished yet so I'm guessing based off the size of the leg next to Prime.

    Is the not-Blackout an Action Master, or does he transform?

    None of these transform. Think of these as all being Dual Model Kits that come already assembled but have even better sculpting and vastly better painting than Takara gave us.

    BLACKOUT IS COMING OMG! Can't wait to finally have a good figure/model of the guy, whether it transforms or not :D 

    Hopefully it's leader-sized just like their Prime; and just as accurate

    Now this I'm going to add to my collection. Although I'm going to thin it out a lot I would like it to be more high end lookers like this.

    Harrismonkey, you should just start a unified thread for all of 4ever's figures. I'm betting most movie fans would appreciate it :) 

    Also, if Megatron and Blackout will be in scale w/ Prime, that means they'll be reasonably taller...that makes me happy.

    According to the Staff, he can't. Threads have to be individual for each release.

    Still, threads would be cool.

    Scorpion Figure - Third Party Transforming Toys & Accessories 4Ever

    BBTS still has it in stock. They didn't have many to begin with.

    The VERY good news about that is it presumably means they'll carry Megatron as well. This was the first 4Ever product they've carried. I much prefer BBTS to ebay.

    He is gorgeous.
