    Scorp is pretty small in the show. Right now the tfcc one is my start. I would like to find the 2006 box set. But I would pretty much like to target Dinobot first. Advise me if I should just go for the full box set.

    I would just go after the full set.
    Every now and again they pop up for as low as $600. Just be patient and wait it out until you see one. Check the boards, Facebook groups, and eBay and you'll eventually find the whole set for a couple hundred more than what someone just wants to sell Dinobot for.

    Is there such a thing as a smaller, non ape, cybertronian Optimus Primal?

    I thought the deluxe can ONLY turn into a gorilla.

    So deluxe optimus primal can transform into ape and shuttle? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    No, deluxe primal doesn’t have an ape mode at all, he only turns into the surfboard/shuttle and combines with the leader gorilla as it’s cockpit for vehicle and robot modes

    Ok, I guess that works for me. I won't need to look for botcon primal. But Megatron is going to be the pain.

    Almost looks perfect, however I don't think that's the right head for Beast Megatron. It just seems to be missing some stuff.

    Plus, that has a Decepticon symbol. I don't think they make stickers for Predacons.

    Fair, the head is a bit off, but it’s probably the best, easiest to get fit

    I could fix the head just a little paint and some detail.


    Plus I don't think they make Predacon stickers to cover the Decepticon symbol.

    I’m not entirely sure, I don’t have armada hoist (dinobots mold mate) or blitzwing/megatron from titans return, unicron trilogy deluxes are typically larger than modern deluxes, but still shorter than modern voyagers

    I'll have to think of something for Megatron if not the Botcon. Plus it's also hard for Waspinator.

    Yo, i'm getting rid of a X9 metals Jaguar (Ravage). I thought i'd give you guys dibs before I toss it into the cold abyss of the free market.

    It was taken out of box twice, doesn't have the Megatron sticker, and has the Decepticon sticker on the chest.
