    They could give us an MPM version of Bumblebee 70s camaro to go with a Decepticon if they dont want to release 3 decepticons in a row...

    I'm glad they went with the American Headmaster version. Outside of the Botcon one a few years ago we never got one. Color me excited! :D

    Count me in for Scorponok and Quintessons.

    Or it still is head mode, but the forehead and visor comes down to cover the face. I think I can make out his chiseled features just behind it

    looking at it again i think youre right, especially since his forehead has a big grey spot in that pic where the visor and black forehead would slide up

    I don't have any favorites in this rumor list, so if the toys look good, I'll be excited for them.

    Just so there's no confusion, this is a Photoshop colored in photo of the larger Zarak / Scorponok head that was shown at NYCC. Someone colored it in to show how the head will likely work / look. The front of the forehead and visor fold down over the face of the Titan sized robot.

    I would agree if Hasbro hadn't been changing the sizes of figures so much in the past few lines. You are probably right, but since Siege debuted, Leaders and below have been downsized, while Titan remains the same, and Commander has no reference. Sky Lynx is one of my best childhood memories. I can remember opening him on Christmas day, and that my dad remembered to get batteries for once, and within the hour, Captain Modesty was "parading" around the living room to the amazement of both my parents. I don't have a lot of memories with my parents together like that... CW Sky Lynx was almost a slap in the face, only saved by both his main modes looking decent, but the combined mode was pretty bad, and prevented having separate bots. SL can be justified at any scale thanks to his Season 3 appearance varying in size so greatly. I wait to pass judgement, but if he isn't a decent size, I am pulling the trigger on the MMC release. Ironically, I skipped Titan Predaking and have stuck with Feral Rex as my Predaking all this time. I like how FR and UT Ordin scale with my CW stuff and CW Devastator. I think a Titan or 2 Commanders would still be better as S.L. would most likely not be very tall, just long with a big wingspan. Magna Inventa was scaled about perfectly with Feral Rex, but I didn't get them because of all the reports of neck problems, but they may still be the best option for me, depending on what HasTak have decided to do.

    As far as Scorponok goes, I sincerely hope that "Zarak" has a scorpion mode of his own. Cerebros didn't have a viable "supercomputer mode" and he was stuck as a tower if I removed "Emissary" (A lot of sarcastic "quotation marks", I know).
    I am also concerned that Scorp may suffer from a diminutive stature like Trypticon due to the shere amount of mass he would need for his scorpion claws, legs, and tail; and I would not be surprised if they left out his gun, and possibly even his wheeled shielded (such a clever way to incorporate wheels into Scorpion mode). I sincerely hope I am wrong and it was pointed out to me in another thread by @Bob Schoonover that based on Fort Max's mass, it is still possible to be around 22-24", but I have my doubts. I look forward to finding out, and hopefully, being wrong.

    If Sky Lynx is anywhere near as nice as Skyfire I'll be a very happy fan that skipped MMC's offering

    Botcon 2016 version.
    which was Energon Scorponok retooled to be compatible with a g1 Headmaster.
    said Head(master) being the Spike noggin from Fortress maximus with a new g1 cartoon accurate face sculpt.
    (the prevalent theory being that since Takara had just used the g1 Fort Max mold for the Encore release, the tooling was easy enough to get access to, and thus why it was used)
