    I totally forgot about ROTF Dark Scorponok... now I really want to see a repaint of ROTB Scorponok in these colors.

    Maybe it's a homage and maybe they just thought it was cool.

    This is one surprisingly DAMN good figure.
    Had no idea it would be this good. Scorp mode may be the best ever, and bot mode is wicked fun.

    Don't miss this one!

    I've generally sworn off movie figures for the most part, but I'm also a sucker for robo-insects.
    Overall, I like it. Reminds me a lot of the WfC Kickback figure to some degree.

    Mine is due today. Like you, I usually don't go for movie figures but this one looked fun. Sounds like you had a positive experience with this guy. :thumb

    Yeah, one of the very few modern movie figures I am genuinely enjoying.
    Lots of charisma packed into a little Deluxe.

    Yet another design with locking knees – it's not bad, per se, but it is weird. How did this trend start?

    I love this figure so much. It's got great personality and the poseability is bonkers. I'll get a couple more for my swarm, but I'd love some repaints with some other colors

    There's tabs that lock the knees in place when they're extended straight. They serve no other purpose. Gamer Megatron has them, as well as one or two others I'm forgetting. All within the past year or so.

    I saw one at Walmart today and was struck by the colors. I was very tempted. It does look like a great figure, but unfortunately it doesn’t have a place in my collection. Still tempted.
