    Yeah not a huge fan of many of those, I was more referring to the animal kingdom.

    No joke, I legitimately forgot she was supposed to come with him! That was part of why I wanted the figure! LOL

    The original insider info was in fact for Tigertron, but they were just as shocked when Lio was revealed if I remember correctly.

    Are you sure? I thought the rumour was simply that a white cat was on the horizon and we all (including the originator of the information) jumped to the collusion t was Tigatron. I think @HolyCulture can clarify? My memory might be faulty but I THINK he passed this little titbit on to us?

    I was told that Blackarachnia and Tigatron specifically were going to be revealed. Tigatron was a no-show at that event. My source was confused and said he saw a white cat prototype and said ‘that’s Tigatron right??’. We were both let down and I had to eat crow for announcing Tigatron was next. Then Lio convoy was announced. I had the big ‘aaaahhhhhh ok’ moment.

    then Tigatron was announced. So I’m not sure if the original intel was correct or if it’s a coincidence.

    Every single source I’ve ever had is being uncommonly quite since I was told Tigatron. This is just as frustrating for me as for any of you haha

    Maybe they aren’t planning any more after Tigatron...

    Ah! Yes you're right. I didn't want to tell you though.
    I'd like to imagine that a few more repaints, homages, and plus figures are coming this year. But I think 2021 is going to be insane with that CHUG Unicron, and Raiden, and whatever else comes. Personally I'm saving up right now haha

    Anniversaries all over the place next year. I'm expecting a lot of new molds, and not only for BW MPs. MP G1 Galvatron is long overdue.

    Awesome, thanks for the clarification. So it was assumptions all round. I guess its possible the white cat he saw was Tigatron, it just took a little longer for him to come out and Lio Convoy confused issues or... Tigers and Lions are just indistinguishable from one another to your source lol.

    Yeah, no company would be stupid enough to take a risk like making a Scorponok...

    Transform Element is making this in Legends scale though. Would be workable in MP scale too.

    I hope this makes him more palatable in Takara's eyes so they churn him out asap...

    With Takara making the anime movie repaint of Primal that happens to also homage the original BW toy of him complete with beast mask and all I wonder if we'll see more of them for repaints such as Blackarachnia sporting her original toy deco for example? It's be niche true but hey it's not like MP in general didn't do that from time to time either.

    With that, I would have almost believed that would happen soon.

    IIRC Transform Element showed off a different Predacon arachnid a few months before Takara unexpectedly revealed their own version...maybe history will repeat itself lol.

    That 3p Scorp is news to me. Cool, for the record his original mega class toy is probably really close to MP scale a legends class figure would be much too small for the MPs.

    Don't swear in here!
    Lol just kidding.

    I never heard of Transform Element, but that picture of Rattrap looks spot on! Is it released at all? Also I am definitely buying Scorponok. I don't even care if it won't be in scale with MP. I always wanted a good represented Scorponok figure. I mean the old figure wasn't bad, colors were off. What sites sells these?
