    Or even a KO company if Hasbro won't.

    It also lets you do this

    I approve of this message:
    SAY IT OUT LOUD GIRL!

    An OSKO to Leader size (Overload's size). All I ask from a generous-enough OSKO company.

    Good job! I have always said it, when you have a good experience as a model maker, it should be exploited to highlight the many "hidden details" (from a simplified official coloring) of these figures! Only in this way do you realize that in these models... there is much more than what you see!

    I wonder how much damage this does to a figure like that

    Ive been thinking lately, I really wish we could have gotten a small deluxe sized Scorponok that could transform without having to worry about a gimmick that obstructs it.

    I think it would be really cool to have a 2007 Scorponok with a similar transformation to Beast Wars Scorponok, where the sides of the Scorpions torso with the Scorpions legs fold up onto the back, his robot legs would fold out from under those side torso pieces and the Scorpion head would fold down to form the chest with the robot mode head coming up from behind it, I wouldnt mind seeing it with the Decepticon Protoform head as well that looks similar to Blackouts and Grindors, seeing as he was partnered with Blackout in the first place I think keeping that similar head design would be cool.

    I know its beyond unlikely that we will ever get another good shot at a movie Scorponok at a small deluxe scale, but I would honestly love a good modern take on his transformation in toy form.

    Scorponok could be one of Core Class's first releases. It just doesn't feel right with him being that big.

    I always figured he was probably roughly the size of a small car, maybe similar scale to Jazz, but honestly if they start releasing core class figures in Studio Series and Scorponok is one of those figures Id probably still be pretty happy, providing that the robot mode is well proportioned and a bit more modernised, Id prefer a small deluxe version though, but Id also settle for a core class one if it was decent enough.

    I would still want him to at least have an actual head thats different from the Scorpion head instead of just looking like a Scorpion standing up on two normal legs, it would be nice to see a robot mode design thats a bit more creative, not sure what they could do at core class scale in terms of engineering, but the current Kingdom core figures have been pretty fun, and I still love my 2008 legends scale Scorponok, even though his stinger crumbled into dust, the robot mode on that figure is honestly really well proportioned, and better than the 2007 deluxe figure, I just wish it had a separate robot mode head and maybe a shorter tosro.

    I did hear rumours of core scale figures being introduced to the Studio Series line, but outside of that I know nothing of what characters might possibly be released, Id imagine Mohawk would be one though.

    Wow split is your favorite? I don't think I've heard that before. Awesome! I'm sort of dreading getting split, since overly complex transformations aren't really my thing, and I've heard that you need to take the truck cab off to get him to stand well, but all three modes do look really good from what I've seen. Do you keep yours in head mode all the time now?

    I've heard Skipjack will be releasing sooner rather than later actually, so hopefully you can get those stands for your combined mode soon! He's also my most anticipated member of the team. Way before I decided I was gonna get the whole team I was for sure gonna get Skipjack. Only thing is I wish the "tail" was longer and pointier, but how cool is it that there is a stand built into the robot mode so he can "stand" on his own? And he has MOTHERFUCKING ELBOWS :D 

    Oh and just curious, did your giant axe break at the same place that this one for sale at showz did? [Parts Not Working][Japan Buyer Only]Devil Saviour DS-02 Giant Axe Scavenger Troublemaker
    How long would a figure have to be in there to accumulate all that frost? And why is it that color?

    Picked up ROTF Soundwave a few weeks ago, mostly because he was on sale, and partly for the flight stand. Total rubbish, but he looks cool with SS DOTM Soundwave, the shared parts between them really helps show the evolution.

    There needs to be a realization from these ko companies that a 15% os will be amazing sellers! Seriously, just a slight os and a few tweaks and paint apps here and there should do it.

    The hunt for Ladiesman217.

    The news about the two packs got me to fiddle with my Barricade again. Not one of great SS figures admittedly.

    Hard to say, but I can guarantee you that the figure's fingers are history.
