I picked him up this morning on an impusive buying spree along with Swerve and another alternator Grimlock....anyways on topic. Scattorshot to my suprise is really tiny. Alot smaller than I thought he'd be but he's a golden example to that old saying good things come in small packages. He's a fantastic basic. The paint apps on him are crisp and clean, no slop job on him anywhere and he's armed to the teeth. Hasbro/takara could have taken the short cut with this guy and just let him stay happy with his two press launch missles and flip open missle battery pack on his back, but they went the extra measure and thru gatlin guns on his shoulders and gave him a really G1esque double barrelled hand gun. LOVE THAT IDEA!! The detailing for a basic is great. I havent' seen this much thought put into a basic since the days of Battle for the Spark(with the execpt of energon Arcee and Divebomb). The head scuplt is fantastic and for some reason or another gives a strong Bumblebee vibe to the character. I wasn't really planning on getting any basics till Rumble came out, but I'm glad I didn't. While the only downside to him is his Armada Megatron leg articulation, but I guess thats just now normal with figures since armada. He's a damn fine basic and well worth passing over Ransack and Overhaul as a first basic for your Cybertorn collection. Hands down he's in my top 5 basics with Arcee, Divebomb, Spystreak, and Hammerstrike.
