Waspinator or Terrorsaur because we've never had a flying one.
Terrorsaur definitely. Would like to see how Takara designs his Transformation.
I also think Scorponok is so simple that it would make it easier for Takara to release.
Feeling like Scorponok is on deck.
i hope we get all season 1 characters.
also, my amazon price is now 25,287 shipped as well now
DON'T get my hopes up lol. I already thought about it. His transformation looks simple enough and he is on the tiny side from the S1 characters. So should be cheaper AND I personally like his color scheme and overall look. He is my favorite and I love scorpions I am not biased at all...nope.
Ok, I was going to save this until we had more data to work with, but there is a potential pattern appearing with the releases and it's good news for Scorpy fans:
C-1 Optimus Primal
C-2 Polar Claw
C-6 Optimus Primal Bat
D-6 Megatron Crocodile
D-7 Shadow Panther
D-9 Buzz Saw
That's the Japanese numbering from the original toyline (with Western names for easy reference). Notice anything about the Maximals? The first three show characters on the list are Primal, Cheetor and Dinobot. The first three Maximal MPs released were Primal, Cheetor and Dinobot, in the same order.
On the Predacon side of things, Megatron is first. If the pattern holds true, that bodes well for Scorponok being next.
This is only looking at the show characters. A Shadow Panther redeco from Cheetor was inevitable. I Imagine a Buzz Saw redeco of Waspinator would come out of sequence, too.
Interesting theory but I'd put money on the pattern not not holding true and that it's purely a coincidence. The main pattern I see in what's been released thus far is thier all very popular characters. Scorponok is one of the least popular. Prsonally I'd be likely to skip an MP Scorponok if it happened.
I'd love a scorponok personally, loved the original toy. If they are going by popularity, I'd guess rattrap, rhinox, blackarachnia or tarantulas, all of which would be great choices imo
Man, Scorponok was always my favorite design as a kid. Scorpions are fucking badass and he had such a cool color scheme. I'd be thrilled if he weren't t. Either him or Blackarachnia.
Hmm.... Scorponok and Waspinator are definitely way down on my want list for MPs. If the next MP is another Predacon I want Blackarachnia or Terrorsaur.
Same. Of the two of really like to see a decen't figure of Terrorsaur, he's just a really nice design that was never quite done justice in toy form. Unlike Skoponok I was sad to see the back of him, his Starscream like spineless treatory was fun.
Sign me up for terrorsaur...he was my tied with dinobot as my favorite character on the show. His MP would have to employ some serious voodoo for him to look like his animation model tho....
Cheetor seems like the anomoly though (unless I am underestimating his popularity). He is the only release not back by a hof win. Guessing it was probably just to help complete the the first 5 maximals.
The queen needs his loyal soldier.
"ooooo, I like him, yeeeeessssssss." is still one of my favorite Inferno moments.
I don't think Takara would have risked Cheetor being the 2nd MP if he wasn't popular. If we're looking at the Beast era as a whole, Cheetor was also a pretty prominent character thru out the series. Besides Primal and Megs, hes also the only season 1 character who got 3 different BW Toys (S1, TM, TM2). He was also the character used on the front of all the Beast Machines box art.
Yeah, I'd be more impressed if they pulled off terrorsaur than Dinobot. Dinobot's show model had some child bearing hips, so they can pack a lot of stuff into his body without being too far off the mark. Terrorsaur, on the other hand, has a very thin beast mode and no dinosaur legs to turn into arms. If anything he's going to be a very chunky pterodactyl. And i also don't see them putting the effort into making that magic happen with a character that was killed off because he wasn't popular enough. Would love to see him get the Dinobot treatment, but I'm not optimistic.
can't wait to see how he compares to Grimlock in T-Rex mode, kinda imagining he's double the size
my guess for the next.... yeah, I'll go for Inferno, gotta have the #2
