    Is this guy worth getting if I already have Scoria?

    Yes, no, maybe!

    I still have both, as there are things I prefer on both of them.

    Ceasium doesnt have the same design issues with floppy hips, holding weapons etc, but has a few small niggles of his own, such as the head plate rotation having little clearance and the back plate being a pain to tab in for alt mode.
    I like the overall shape of ceasiums alt mode more, but scoria's has a much better dino head sculpt and tail and a flame projector in the mouth, which is absolutely a requirement for slag!
    I don't think size is much of an issue, Im happy with either in bot mode tbh but Ceasium is bulkier. His upper body proportions are better but his lower legs look far too bulky for me.

    Ceasium doesn't have the same level of detailing as the other dibots, especially from the waist down in bot mode its very plain looking and I think scoria fits in better in that regard. Alt mode has less sculpted detail too. The overall finish and quality is a notch lower than their grimlock and sludge was, its not bad by any means just not as good, I especially noticed this in the hands. No stress marks anywhere on mine or anything like that.

    I wish I could tell you its a straight forward choice between the two but for me its not :(

    Yes, he is. This way you can display one Slag in each mode!

    And by the way, Orion's analysis is spot on! :thumbs2:

    Echoing what @Orion2703 said exactly, both have pros and cons. Ultimately both will be chucked aside if Scoria 2.0 ever does get released.

    Can anyone confirm if the horns from Caesium can be used on Scoria?

    Yup fits quite snugly and the size of the horn base (where Cesium’s red horn meets the gold portion) is just about right. PM me if you need any other views.

    Wow, thank you so much buddy, this is really good news for me. Can you check if the Gun or Sword of Caesium can somehow fit on Scoria?

    The tabs on Cesium’s weapons are longer but I guess you still can make Scoria grip without tabbing in?

    Yeah, forget the tab, is the gun or even the sword holdable somewhat by scoria?

    Cesium is definitely the better figure in both modes when it comes to toon accuracy, but unfortunately it just doesn't match the aesthetic of the other FT Dinobots because of the bot mode being way too big. Even with all the 'clever' poses and/or distance positioning that people post pictures of to make it look like it fits in, it just doesn't. It looks like a completely different stand-alone figure from another line being shoehorned into the other 4 figures.

    So in that regard, I think Scoria is still the one for bot mode line-up consistency. But if you have doubles for dual mode display, then get Cesium for the dino mode.

    I originally bought Cesium, and out of curiosity, bought Scoria. I too feel that Cesium is too big to fit in with the other Dibots in both robot mode and dino mode. I dino mode, his back is taller than Stomp's, his legs feel like the wheels of an F1 racecar - they are thick, larger, and stick out of the body.

    Not to say that I dislike the toy. I prefer Cesium over Scoria due to the cartoon accuracy, and the engineering. He's just a bit too big and has slightly less detail than Scoria.

    I just did the same thing. I got Cesium when he came out. I liked him a lot at first but over the months of looking at him his style just didn't seem to fit with the other dibots. So I picked up a reissue Scoria off of eBay for a pretty good deal. Turns out I like Scoria better. He seems better built and feels less fiddly while transforming him. My Cesium is now on eBay looking for a new home.

    Scoria could but its really loose.

    Not really, just position his fingers prior and you're good to go!

    Do Scoria's aesthetics in one or both modes really bother you? Is he one of the older versions that's become a floppy mess?

    Cesium might solve one or both of those problems for you, at the cost of him being a bit under-detailed/over-sized/cheap-feeling. Whether he's "worth it", will depend on how much each of those factors matter to you.

    For what it's worth, I initially picked up Cesium, found myself unhappy with him, and switched out for Scoria. If you do buy Cesium, I'd wait until you have him in-hand before offloading Scoria.
