    Anyone think we might get a repaint for this? I'd like one with more black details and such. I'm actually a fan of the mold, and it was my first movie toy, along with Classic BB.

    I was pretty happy with the sand colored battle pack one

    I want a new Legends class Scorponok. The tail tip on mine turned brittle. It practically falls apart, if you touch it. :(

    I want one, perhaps with an actual robot mode, not just a scorpion with two legs.

    I think that Scorpinok (Scorponok? How DO you spell his name?) was the only movie character/mold I never got ahold of... not that I didn't see him anywhere, I just couldn't bring myself to buy him.

    I have the little mini-Scorp that came with blackout, that's pretty much good enough for me. Funny thing, that one's actually a life-sized scorpion! I'm amused by this, because I've never seen a scorpion in person till I moved here to Texas (been here bout a year and a half now)... while I certainly respect them and keep my distance, I can't help but find myself drawn to them out of "new creature" curiousity. Luckily, I've never met an aggressive one. And the biggest one I've seen? Bout the size of the Scorpy that came with Blackout.

    So that makes that mini-Scorp pretty cool in my book. :) 

    As far as a new toy... I doubt we'll see a repaint unless we actually see him in RoTF.

    I like the first movie Scorponok figure, even though his robot mode is more of a can't-reach-the-kitchen-counter/tittie-twister-mode. I wish his tail was more articulated.

    Which we do. He attacks a certain someone in a certain sandy place.

    Wasn't there a news or rumors about Scorponok will be getting robot mode on ROTF?

    I skipped his first movie figures. If Hasbro does release a cool repaint I might pick it up this time around.

    If they do a ROTF Scorponok figure, I want them to give him his REAL other mode: that of Blackout's engine.

    It'd be nice if the first movie Legends figure was re-released. It was only available in a two-pack with the extremely sucky Legends Bumblebee.

    I'd like to see a new mold Deluxe (or preferably Scout) that actually turns into something. Anything. A slight redeco is more likely, though.

    I liked the first one and it was also my first movie toy but I don't think I'll get another one as I was satisfied with it.

    I hope they pump out a Voyager class. Is that asking too much?

    Yep. Here's hoping for the return of the mighty Blackout.

    Didn't know. Haven't been keeping up with the movie too well. On purpose. :)  Trying to avoid as many spoilers as I can... though on a message board, that's pretty tough. That's pretty cool that he'll be making a repeat appearance.

    That would've been cool. I bought the two-packs for Scorp and I forgot who the other two-pack one was - Brawl? And Ironhide? I vaguely remember having a white Ratchet, sandy Blackout and dirty Bumblebee as extras. I just gave the repaint doubles to my little niece. :)

    Personally, I'd be happy with either a repaint, or re-release, of the Deluxe class figure. Maybe give the mold a Premium-like paint job. Would go nicely with the Deluxe Ravage we're supposedly getting.
