    Reading Twitter, I saw the super awesome Mr. S250 tweeted about an upcoming repaint; " for people waiting for the scorpion toy we talked before,disappointed news:it's not a new mold.just Energon Scorponok repaint."
    While I'd rather have a new mold, this also feels one of those frustrantingly simple repaints I wish we'd had earlier. Anyone else excited?


    Here's a link to the tweet: https://twitter.com/s250/status/15560568538

    Edit: s250 said it's a limited run of 1000. So this makes it even more interesting...might be a Japanese exclusive.

    I don't have this mold yet so I'd probably get him if he looks decent.

    I'll get it if it looks good. I never got the Energon mold. Hopefully Hasbro will do another repaint and give me Energon Omega Supreme in G1 colors.

    Interesting. Depending on how it looks, and where it's available, I might get it. My Decepticons could use another large figure. I'm guessing it'll be a TRU exclusive, though it could potentially be from Walmart or Target.

    Sweet! I've wondered for so long why they hadn't re-issued Scorpy. Now I wonder who'll be doing an upgrade complete with Headmaster.

    Energon or Cybertron Skorponok? I never got around to getting the Cybertron version of the mold.

    I would not mind a G1 repaint of that mold. Black Zarak would be sweet as well.

    Am I missing something? Everyone's responding as if they've already heard of this before, but this is news to me. I mean, Generations being a deluxe-only line, (and TF2010 not having an Ultra Class), where would a Scorponok recolor go?

    (possible Botcon souvenir?)

    I passed on this mold countless times, and I'm kinda wishing I hadn't. I'll probably pick this up.

    Given S250's comment about it being limited, I'm guessing it's a Botcon toy.

    When they mentioned the set is post-rebirth, that piqued my interest as it's likely Galvatron/Scorponok will be leading the Decepticons.

    Could be, being that Generations is only Deluxe.

    Which kind of sucks, since I would really want a new Scorponok. (That I can afford!)

    If it's got a G1-ish paint scheme, then I'm all over it!! Unless it's ridiculously priced, which is likely if it's limited.

    Where does S250 say this would be Generations? The tweet doesn't mention a specific toy line. I'd imagine he's referring to this: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...rumor-airachnid-debut-transformers-prime.html (And to be clear, he never specifically said it would be for Prime before, either.)

    Though Generations store exclusives in non-Deluxe sizes wouldn't surprise me a bit, nor would a revelation that the line in general won't always be Deluxes.

    I will be very surprised if this is a BotCon toy.

    Let's hope for a black zarak repaint.

    If this is available at retail and is in a Black Zarak color scheme, I might pick this up. Otherwise it's a pass, since the Energon version is good enough for me.

    Cybertron Dark Scorponok isn't close enough to Black Zarak's deco?
