    God damn look at that hand articulation! Seperate index finger and mid finger bend? Hell yeah! I am disappointed that it looks like he won't come with a fishing pole, I remember Pixelmaster saying that the prototype had a roller that might not have made it to the final stage, and sadly it looks like it didn't. Maybe those will be moved to an accessory pack like the Centurion drone?

    But still, the hand articulation alone has me sold on this thing. The trailer is also alot denser then I expected, but that's a good thing because I felt ER Optimus' trailer was too flimsy. I'm glad to see the ramp connectors as well, but curious about the drawer that Apollux mentioned. The cannon is huge was well, it'll look badass displaying either him, or someone else manning it.

    I'm overall VERY happy with it. People can complain all they want about it being "not worth $80" but I personally think it's going to be worth it. The only complaint I can really give right now is the lack of a Fishing Pole and Roller. I feel like those really would have sweetened the pot for more people.

    Yeah, but what about the people who aren't aware? There were leaks saying the trailer has a tray to store accessories. Like you know, effect parts. So if a kid leaves the effect parts in the tray, or an adult who doesn't know this, they'll come back to a trailer with dissolved peices. Its why I tossed my effect peices in seconds. Look cool, doesn't justify long term damage to toys

    Actually, if you look at the turret, there's treads at the bottom, so there's speculation it actually comes off and acts as the roller

    So happy to hear! Makes me even more excited for him. Yeah I’m sure Scorponok will feel a bit small but I’m happier he’s a deluxe. Thanks for the info!

    maybe, but I recall Pixelmaster saying it looked somewhat similar to TFX Protector's roller. That'd also mean that we couldn't have a roller deployed while also having someone mounted on the gun which was how I was hoping to display him.

    Whatever though, I know for a fact that I'll have plenty of fun with this guy.

    Giving them the benefit of the doubt that vehicle mode is mistransformed...this still looks mid at best to me for the commander class. The Trailer/Battle Platform doesn't really look any better than the Optimus one, it's a small box with a gun taking up all the space and a tray on the bottom. And if the blast effects are all reused, that's gonna be even more disappointing. Definitely feels overpriced as fuck.

    Feels like these fuckers are selling it at $80 solely for that damn pointer finger

    Not if I drink all the alcohol in your area first.

    I expect that the turret folds back, making the side armor into the sides of the "roller". There's probably more wheels in the back.

    I think the gun implacement can be detatched and that's what they're referring to by the "battery"

    Probably a mistranslation for gun emplacement
