With the update to a six hour grace period, Padre's got a bit less than an hour to post.
Ok good I thought I was missing something.
Hmmm thanks for the reminder.
Ok so with the six hours being up here's the next challenge:
The Last Knight Voyager Scorn, which I will say is much more accurate to the movie.
Oh shit I snoozed!
And then you loozed.
Maybe he should commiserate by getting boozed?
I'm really loving your presentations of late, NemesisGamer. Fabulous posing!
More accurate than what? And to which movie?
Thank you! I appreciate that, I not too good at posing but I like to mess with the figures, so the poses and pictures comes from that.
Sorry about that I should have specified. I am talking about the dino mode being more accurate to the Age of Extinction movie, instead of the deluxe scorn we got with the AOE movie line, especially since he has the three sails on his back.
Here is what I mean:

You're an asshole... Here i was all content with the movie scorn, my os diecast scorn, and the black knight scorn...
Now I HAVE to get the tlk version.
Looks the bees knees.
Maybe so, but I really don't like the bicep curler arm. It killed my interest in Strafe, Snarl, and Slash. That's NOT an improvement IMO.
I'm super glad he got a Voyager. He should have been in scale with Grim, being a Spinosaur and all.
They probably all should have gotten Voyagers, given they were freaking huge in the movie.
I prefer leader grim to that crappy Voyager. Wish scorn was leader and the other tall voyagers
The Leader has this horrifying dino mode though.
It's like if we did the same selective breeding to T. rexes that we did to pugs.
That robot mode really isn't what I'd call good either, but at least it can actually hold the club rather than a peg coming off behind it.
But let's face it, none of Grimlock's toys were particularly great. Hopefully Grimlock will eventually receive the MPM treatment.
With the direction they've gone so far with Grimlock, I'm happy with them just leaving it alone and not ever speaking on it again.
Well if you want I can take more pics for you. Haha
But no I thought the same thing until I got this guy. AOE Scorn is probably my favorite figure in the whole AOE movie line. But the Voyager one is quickly becoming one of my favorite figures out of all the figures we have gotten in the movie lines over the years.
Yeah I completely agree with that. When I first got him, my first thought was "why the weird arm for him, dang it?!" But as I was messing with him to discovered that he could have a decent arm, because the wrist is on a swivel it makes it look better, to me at least.
Here is "normal" position for the arm:
Here is curler arm:
And here is arm using wrist swivel:
Now granted he now has a normal arm bend, but it's a lot of hollow in the arm when it's turned and posed like that.
And it destroys the bicep sculpt. And why did they feel it wise to have the hollow side of his left upper arm facing forward? Still, at least something can be done about the hand. It's more than what Slash, Strafe, and Snarl offer. (particularly egregious with Strafe as Animated Swoop had a similar arm transformation and yet figured out how to let the elbows bend properly AND bow out to meet the wings - and Strafe's arms don't even form anything! They just peg under the wings!)
I love the design but I've never been particularly enthused to go get one of his toys.
