    Nice! Wish the Ravage guns were a metallic chrome.

    Too bad this doesn't make Scorch look more like Scorch. All the same, I might grab it. Don't have Ravage any more, so I might look to split the set.

    I keep hoping that BTS makes a white version of Savage. Would these missiles work on it?

    Might as well ask it here:

    Has anyone ever asked why Scorch was done in grey versus dark blue/navy? Just seems like an odd choice.

    It'd be awesome if someone went back and made some upgrades for various Botcon toys.

    Well so far Botcon toy with 3rd party upgrades include:

    SG Voyager Optimus (Trailers, swords, Targetroid)
    SG Deluxe Optimus (Trailer)
    SG Ultra Magnus (Trailer
    G2 Breakdown (CHMS made a missile launcher)
    SG Ravage (missiles)
    SG Rodimus (trailer, Targetroid)
    SG Junkions (armor and head upgrades)

    There is pleanty of potential for more though. Why not a Xovergen trailer for Toxitron? Okay maybe that's a little silly.

    I want a third party to make a KO Scorch. Then I can make him into Swindle.

    I just placed an unrelated order at Uncle Billy's store...

    Note that the site says he has like 50 days to get the item to you (for non-EMS shipping). So... Might be a while for some people.

    My experience has been it takes under 2 weeks to get an order to the US.
