    And me. This thing looks like a hell of a lot of fun, and having an extra Yuki for Star Saber that has better detail than the original is icing on the cake. I LOVE what I'm seeing here.

    That's the whole point. Chrome heads in Microman and chrome limbs etc in Diaclone. I'm still disappointed that vac metal was left out of the Diaclone reboot and the new Gobots. Cy-Kill with gray arms? Two thumbs down.

    See this why we're never gonna get Deathstalker (CHUG Scorpinok) because Perfect Effects only work on projects to a current brand I.E. Titans Return and Diaclone.....I mean this is cool and all but I'd like Deathstalker to rise from limbo and do battle with my Warden.....

    Well, how about a version of Deathstalker that is compatible with Titanmasters?

    As much as I like this Diaclone idea, yeah I'm still waiting on Deathstalker (and a Black Zarak redeco) to show up. Throw in a Grand Max Warden too. I just hope the wait doesn't extend to "multiple years, if ever" status.

    That would be pointless when HasTak release their Titans Scorponok in 2 years or so.....

    It would be entirely pointy if Deathstalker was Ultra size and Titans Returns Scorponok was Titan size. I do not want Titan Scorponok for my Marvel Scorponok.

    I'm impatiently waiting for their Scorpinok as well.

    I don't think a Titan Scorpinok necessarily invalidates their version. Titan class is a little large to fit into a regular collection. But seeing this is sort of frustrating since I think it means that other idea is just out the window.

    As for this, I guess I'd be more into it if I were a Diaclone fan. But i'm not, so it gets no love from me.

    Ya Has/Tak will only do a Titan size Scorponok while a voyager size would be inconceivable to them....that's why PE was the only option, as of now, for a CHUG size scorpion transforming robot form the comics....

    Well I guess the only Scoroponok figure I will look forward to is Iron Factoy version of Scorp.....

    *Looks at G1 Scorponok on shelf* Some day.....

    I hear ya man....I'm not a Diaclone fan either but was willing to get Dia Battle V2 but couldn't justifie the price for a figure so small....at first though it would be MP-10 size but was wrong....so this thing has no meaning to me and once again another project buries Deathstalker more into the ground....

    Given that it takes about 2 years to make a third party figure from start to end, each company must have about 2 years worth of toys in production at all times.

    Somewhere, someone must still be waiting for Perfect Effect's not Wheelie too.

    Death stalker as a Companion Piece to their Warden is what I'm waiting for too. Whether or not they've given up on that I've no idea considering the time since announcing it and actually producing a comparable Headmaster for it already. It would be a shame not to get it considering how much I love Warden.

    But a Biotron I could use with Diabattles? Sold faster than the speed of money. And make a Phobos too please.

    Micronauts were my first childhood love.

    I'm tempted to track down an original Biotron to go with this. Anyone know what a fair price is for one these days?

    Alright, I didn't know that was the look, that it was supposed to have.

    Depending on the size that was something I might have gotten. I was really hurting for a new wheelie. The old one was a good size, but it had no posability.

    Informative! Thanks.

    Gotta say... if I saw that as a kid, I'd be creeped out. Heck, I'm still kinda creeped out by the looks of it. Hehe.

    The PE figures seem to have the ideas... but the aesthetics are very different. In fact, I'd see him standing alongside other PE works far more so than any of the Takara reboot stuff coming out. Also... maybe it's the head... but I kind of see a possibility for retooling/repainting it into Rung.
