    alt mode is nice looking and the colors are nice.The only strange issue is the hollow part right under the turret similar to movie brawl

    When you unlock the cannons on his arms, you're supposed to slide the right one forward. The left cannon also has the launcher parts extend a bit.

    This way, the handles on the flip-out guns end up in his hands.

    Love this mold, and the old micromaster character. :)  I can't wait to get my hands on this guy, and the rest of this series.

    Nice repaint but the original Dropshot is blue or something.

    He looks like a good figure. I don't know why I never bought him originally.

    I missed on that mold the first time, but the colors are just too boring here. Might pass on him too.

    I know he's a Decepticon and all, but every time I look at the coloring on this guy I can't help but think of the Micromaster Battle Patrol. And I like the lemony yellow, even if it is a bit out of place on a military vehicle.

    I'll definitely get this figure, though... I never got the Scattorshot mold originally, but since then I've seen so many folks rhapsodize about how great it is.

    He looks and sounds great, and since I missed this mold first time round I might have to pick this up.

    I don't mean for this to sound rude at all, but I think it's funny when newer collectors who have only seen movie or animated toys have a hint of surprise when they find out that even some of the older toys out there are good.

    (Not that CD Scattorshot is all that old...)

    How can anybody say the colors look nice or good on this??? It's a missile launcher not a sports car, it should be in camo or dark colors, not bright yellow to stand out. This is one of my favorite molds from Cybertron but I won't touch this ugly thing.

    Have to say that I love this mold. CD Scattorshot was one of the best Voyager Class figures in Cybertron (made second only by Evac IMPO) and this looks like an excellent repaint. Not to mention, they made him a Decepticon and a nice double G1 Micromaster homage. :D  I'll definently be picking him up when he hits retail.

    Oh, Tamo, if you pull the launcher on the right arm forward (it's slides at the point where it connects to the arm) you can make that launcher flush with his hand (for the handle part) while his elbo is bent. It's the way I pose my CD Scattorshot. The other one is only flush when his arm is straight though... they should have done something similar with that arm too, but it's a minor gripe on an awesome figure.

    Eh, love the mold, but that's one assy color scheme. Lime yellow, brown, and green just do not go well together.

    The one on his left arm is more like a heavy launcher, so it looks fine to have it resting on his shoulder-like.
