    Looks like another contender to the BB movie OP throne.

    At first I thought it was a TW but there are subtle differences everywhere.

    Conflicting report. The source didn't say anything about it being transformable but another source claims that it is.

    Wow. That looks awesome, and looks to be pretty far along! Hope it can transform!

    Don’t see a need for it, cause it just looks like a worse version of TW. Another thing:


    It’s using MP10 hands and the SS head. This is already a jumbled mess.

    At the the rate it is going, the TW version might never see the light of the day so this is a good alternative. Who knows if it is transformable, it might actually have a proper ways to hide the feet in alternate mode.

    They also showed a fully painted prototype with a year end release date early this year. Now it is being pushed back to allegedly January 2020 or first quarter 2020.

    I am not holding my breath when it comes to TW. I will believe it when the actual thing is actually out for real.

    Looks great, better than the other modded SS ko out there, and a far more viable competitor for the TW

    hmmm... I am reminded of the MS01 and TE01 war for Prime, this is great! Now I gotta keep my eyes on these two. Toyworld Vs Fire Scorpion! Let the Travis Knight BB Prime wars commence!
    [​IMG]

    So right now there's a bout, but no final battle..

    While I do not own MS01, and I do like him, I think that in the final ending there, Transform Element won the G1 prime wars..
    [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see which will be better in the final analysis.
    Oh, Just thought of another battle winner, DX9 TFTLK Hot Rod.

    Toyworld's is definitely the superior product in terms of aesthetics. I can't see this being much competition unless it's considerably cheaper.

    Oh TW still wins hands down, but given the limbo that is in this is way more of a viable replacement than the other modded one

    Too early to be declaring the winner with just one picture.

    The alternate mode should be a factor too. Also, one seems to be in earth mode, and another cybertronian. We need pics of the same mode to really compare.

    Why does it say "model" in the title? That makes me think it's non-transformable.

    At first glance I was going to say the Toyworld chest is more accurate, but this comparison suggests the Fire Scorpion is more accurate with the more square chest windows? They appear to lack the outwards angle that the rest have though

    Colour me intrigued. The MP10 looking hands suggests this could be MP10/MPM4 scaled, which would make me give this serious consideration over the Toyworld, which looks fantastic but is so large it won't fit with most of my collection.

    That's impossible for both those to be correct. The SS head is for a Voyager figure and would be tiny.

    Interested gained :D 

    Btw, would you be able to make a compilation of alt modes of the various Bumblebee movie Optimus Primes that you just did? Thanks in advance!

    Freedom Leader has already won this war, but I am interested in seeing what becomes of this figure.
