    I'd LOVE a G1 deco of Energon or Cybertron Scorponok!

    My CHUG Decepticons only need a few more leaders... (Megatron, Galvatron, Deathsauras, Bludgeon, Ratbat and soon Clench and Straxus.) Shockwave, Thunderwing, Overlord, and Scorponok are greatly missed...

    Well, this could be interesting. Wouldn't surprise me if this were a store exclusive of some sort. I mean, sure Generations is only deluxe, but that doesn't mean that they won't due larger repaints as part of an exclusive somewhere. I'd be very surprised if this was a Botcon figure, but it would be the right size for the larger priced exclusive with a deluxe/scout figure added.

    I am currently using the SL Version of Scorponok on my CHUG shelf. But if they do happen to do one with a G1 color scheme, I'll be all for it.

    I also cast my vote for a E-Omega Supreme done in G1 colors too. :D

    I'm betting it's the next round of Walmart or TRU Ultra's as exclusives...don't know who else would be in the wave since they seem to do these in 2's or 3's...

    Interesting info. Didn't we also hear about a Shockblast re-release or repaint as Shockwave around the same time?

    If that was the case, I'd rather have a WFC Shockwave :drool:

    Not into Energon at all, but I think if its a G1 repaint with slight retools then it'll probably be part of Generations, if its G1.

    I personally am not fond of that mold, but this is still interesting nonetheless.

    I need a new one considering my Energon one's shoulder joint is really friggin' brittle and I don't want to break it.

    I had energon scorponok but mine's missing pieces. I hope this is a re-release or a G1 deco of the figure.

    It's a great mold.
    Just hope they don't get too crazy with the palette repainting it. Some of these G2 reissues look like a rainbow barfed all over 'em.
