dammit i just finished buying all of the scorias 8(.
They will now have more brodas, cause you know, Slag is the best, so your army will be bigger. I just hope FT does X version too. I will have both Scoria X and this Slag too, on top of my FP and PX Slags .
If this is V2 Scoria, would there then be a V2 Soar to fix those stupid gold clips?
This is an April Fool's.
This is NOT an April Fool's joke.
V1 Soar wasn't announced the same time as V1 Scoria...
Why is this needed exactly?
Can't wait for their V2 Perceptor
looks pretty awesome.. though what i really want are official G1 cartoon accurate dinobots to go along with the direction the masterpiece line has gone.
masterpiece grimlock, at the time, worked well enough. now he's just so out of scale and so aesthetically different that it no longer works for me.
it seems that all of the third party dinobots have designed their dinobots based on the G1 toys/masterpiece grimlock.
i wonder if we'll ever get proper smooth, clean, accurate G1 dinobots. at this point i wouldn't care who makes them as long as they look good and fit in with the rest of the masterpiece collection.
Firstly: wonder if this means Gigapower is bowing out?
Secondly: what is happening to Fans Toys, if anything?
Thirdly: I guess now is where we give up on Skyfire.
I am not sure I understand what you were trying to say, but I believe Scoria, Soar and Jetfire were "announced together". Can't find the image in tfw2005 anymore, but see this: Fans Toys FT-04 Scoria Images Show MP Class Not Dinobot Slag and Possible Slag and Jetfire? Transformers News Reviews Movies Comics and Toys
Even though I have Scoria, I'm curious about this one. The fact dalianjj is the one posting about it, makes me even more interested. Hoping we get some more info soon.
I hope its not but how do you know and then now its like which versions do I buy, this guy looks way way better. Anybody wanna be a keener and do a comparison of this with the original.
V2 pre-empting Cloud 9. Looks nice.
I disagree with everyone here. The only thing that looks better is the bot head. There are alot of swoopy angles that don't make this feel G1 toon IMO. The boxy G1 look of the original FT slag to me feels 100% more toon accurate than this. This new design feels too much like gigapower for my liking. Just my opinion.
I see a few big differences in what I assume the transformation would be compare to scoria. It looks like the bottom jaw hinges down to form the chest with the head being inside the mouth in Dino mode, maybe it pushes into the Dino head a bit. Also it looks like the tail splits and forms the back of the lower legs.
Over all it looks nice to me, would have to see it in color with the other bots before I could make a decision. It has to fit in.
This looks better than scoria and if the rest of the dinobots are being released then not only am I glad I didn't buy sever for $150 on sale, but will also be holding off on fanstoys stomp as well.
Damn, how many lives does Gigapower have? You're always posting tombstones for them LOL!
I got rid of my v1 Scoria to get Scoria D and have a line of Diaclone Dibots instead. This is a perfect way for me to get Slag again without getting the same mold! This preempting Grassor is maybe a screw-you for Quakeblast? I never dug Grassor's look, but I like the look of this PF-01.
I'm not sure if this looks more toon accurate than Scoria, though. Either way, I still like it.
He looks nice, but I don't see the point in this at all. I'm very pleased with their previous Slag.
No worries, enough if you wil.
Kudos to you for being one if the few to stay consistent. Most have claimed to dislike the look of gp, now that their look has been reincorporated and branded by ft, it's 'awesome!'. Add to that they want to sell you the same toy twice, and I can only watch in speechlessness.
if and when a preorder is available, scorias will be devalued, resell-wise. It's like a triple f-you to the customer from ft, and the customer will like it. People like this--
You implied that because there's no V2 Soar, this is an April Fools joke, yes? My point was that Soar wasn't fully revealed at the same time as Scoria, just like there hasn't been any kind of reveal of him now. And a silhouette teaser is far different from an official announcement, especially in the third party world.
