    hmm!

    interesting

    you know what would actually be kinda cool? [me being the "unimpressed with this years exclusives" type of guy]
    is if this was Banzaitron

    THAT would be cool

    colors are KINDA close. i think the mold would fit the char nicely but..

    who knows


    i might be interested if it was :D

    Boy, that sure is a telling color scheme. What Decepticons do we know of that are black with purple and green highlights?

    Calling Banzai-tron.

    Well that's why they didn't use that mold for Scourge then.

    Wonder who this could be, guess it's not a sweep after all...

    The orange details on the chest are pretty telling.

    indeed!

    the more i compare the two the more im compelled to say it is.

    and if it is then i would be oh so sorely tempted to buy him. banzaitron soooo needs a good toy



    i should say that i deserve a free one if it does turn out to be true. cuz well..i'm awesome and i would've called it first ON TEH INTRAWEB!!1111 [which is where stuff matters most]

    xD

    Yes it is supposed to be Banzai-tron.

    Mine is still better ;) 

    But still very cool of them to do this guy. I would rank him up there with Leozack as the only two good figures this year.

    Banzai-tron, I would actually want.

    Ah well - I'm getting Powered Commander in a few days as consolation.

    cataclizm said the same thing to me

    and while the colors are there i would just have to major facepalm at the mold choice. just does not feel like a Scorponok kinda mold to me

    but maybe thats just me :p

    If they DARE call that scorponok...They should just run out in front of the road and wait for the bus to run them over...the SHORT bus....

    they should have used the cybertron scorponok mold ages ago and did a G1 scorponok repaint...that mold has been screaming for a G1 tribute since it came out....

    I can see it working as a Banzai-Tron. I don't think they could have used that mold for Scourge anyways as it already has one version that looks like G1 Scourge.

    As for Scorponok, why would they use that mold when they have access to a perfect Scorponok mold from the same line?

    Agree, yours look better.

    Also, would a mod correct the title? It says "Bonzai-Tron", and now I cannot get the image of a cyber-ninja that transforms into a bonsai-tree out of my head... :D

    OMG BANZAITRON!

    Okay, that's the best exclusive this year. I love that mold (even more than Cyb Unicron, sorry llamatron), I love Banzai-tron, and I LOVE those colors.
