    I want to see what you guys think, do you think they should introduce Scorpy in the animated show at some point? I think they should because he could fit right in, use a little bit of the original and some of the movie version and he could be badass.

    So what do you guys think?




    On a side note I did NOT read the synopsis for all the episodes this season for TF Animated because I didn't want to be spoiled.

    Yes but as a giant monster, maybe an Upgrade for The Headmaster?
    he could be a gigantic Scorpion and he could be captured and taken over by the head master

    I say nay. I think they should stick with the BW practice of small groups on both sides, and I also think we should use more iconic characters from G1, mainly all season 1 characters with select few from season 2 and 3 of G1, plus characters from other series that won't stick out like a turd in a punch bowl.

    Nay. Scorponok from the movie was kind of lame. Unless you are referring to the original. In that case closer but still Nay.

    I think Scorponok wouldn't be needed at all with the Headmaster around.

    Would be nice to have a G1 comics-esque version around. Maybe let him be one of the Decepticon generals, and perhaps the first to sign a treaty with Ultra Magnus because he realizes that the war is, well, pointless.

    I want a break from Scorponok, I like all versions of him but could do without him just this once.

    I like Scorps (well G1 and say...the movie version, wasn't a big fan of him in BW actually)...but I say we take a break from him.

    I agree with razorclaw...they should stick with a more BW era smaller faction approach, as BW showed us it really really helps with the characterization and makes for a better show overall.

    Some minor roles and whatnot from other characters here and there are fine, but keep the core cast to a smaller size.

    G1 Marvel Scorponok would be nice.

    But not necessary.

    Damn, I forgot about Insections. They are a must see in the new series.

    Scorpy just wouldn't really be the same without Lord Zarak, and introducing both would take too long. Of course, they could do Zarak as a Luthor-esque wealthy, powerhungry buisnessman, who signs a pact with a Con general for more power.
    But the Headmaster idea is good too, as long as they keep Scorponok sentient. For those who don't know Marvel Comics Scorponok - all other version (save IDW's and he's written by the same guy) pale in comparison. 8)

    More importantly, though... when do we get Animated Ratbat? ;)  Come on - a glorified Decepticon accountant is always fun to watch. :)
