I hadn't seen it before.
Looks kind of cool - resembles the Nemesis and Astrotrain.
That does look kind of cool, I have to admit. Sharkticon is SUCH a massively underated toy too; one of the best Energon figures IMO.
Wow, that's nice!
He also has a Superlink Sprung, and a Cybertron Sideways, both look pretty good also!
Nice! I don't recall i K.O for Sharkiticon.
There's a similar thread here.
Wow. This seller has KOs of some of my favorite molds. The Sharkticon is great! I was hoping for an official release of this mold in another color scheme. The Cy Sideways would be cooler if the colors varied more from the original.
The Sprung is quite neat as is the G2 Dreadwing.
IT looks like Sprung is shrunk down to the size of a deluxe, I want!
(wonders if it has the tank mode)
I don't think he has a tank mode. I don't have him in the flesh, but looking at those pics his lower legs are one solid piece. It doesn't look like they split in tank treads.
No, he's Mega/Voyager class size. Is that his original size?? I thought he was being sold as an Ultra?
Sharkticon is oversized.
Im so in for that DesertCamo DLX sized Sprung!
Nice. Too bad they've never officially done a repaint of him... he's definently one of the best molds from Energon.
Noticed that the seller has one of those mini (7 inch) Brave Maximus KO's. Been thinking about getting one, but does anyone know the quality of that particular KO?
Well, he was being sold as an ultra, but the core helicopter/robot was about voyager/mega sized. Thing is he came with a drone that was about the same size as him that could either transform into a weapons pack on his back or a ED-1000 styled robot drone and it attached to his underside in helicopter mode. Obviously that's been removed from this KO.
Thought as much, but I wasn't sure. I like my KO Bulkhead even more now.
Thats bad ass! If I had the money to spend on KOs on ebay right now I'd totally get Sharkticon!
Wow, those color schemes for Sharkticon and Sprung are really nice -- reminiscent of Astrotrain and MW Sandstorm, respectively. (Not sure about Dreadwing masquerading as Wally West, though....)
Underrated? I thought everybody loved Sharkticon? It certainly was one of my favorites from Energon. I know I bought bunches of him when he was clearanced at the end of the line.
100% agreed. My only problem with him is the blinding orange in robot mode. The colors on this KO are superior in every conceivable way.
I like the guy's Sprung too! But Sideways is too similar to the official release, which itself is poorly colored.
Agreed! He really doesn't even seem like he belonged to Energon, his design aesthetic was so distinctive. Great figure, cool alt mode... rather poor colours, which is probably the main reason many folks didn't give him a second glance. Took me a while to appreciate Sharkticon, so I had to track him down on Ebay eventually.
I like very much the idea of an upsized, recoloured version. Desert Sprung/Bulkhead looks great too.
As for Dreadwing in red... does anybody remember those digibashes someone did a while back, depicting Dreadwing and Smokejumper as Warpath and Powerglide (suprisingly effectively)? That's what this version reminds me of.
