    Agreed. I'd love to get my hands on that G2 colored Skorponok. Heck, I'd like the G1 colored KO if it were $100 or less.

    Can anyone get details on the Skorponok? Almost looks downsized

    I was translating the text for that Scorponok, and I think it says that this is an old toy. The guy selling it says he bought it 20 year ago, I think! So don't expect to see lots of them.

    That Sharkticon overscale was out before I noticed - I neglected to ask for feedback on it's quality and ask if any one had one from last time.

    I was also curious about if that was the only one overscaled - I'm guessing they did it because of the United Axalon and not because someone in China likes Superlink a lot.

    I would be happier than a fox in a hen house if someone overscaled the Autobot Energon combiners and then left the linkage parts the same size as normal.

    I would so love a Rodimus that could be combined well with Jetfire/Cliffjumper/Ironhide and lood decentish by virtue of being bigger - it would also look better with the usual Optimus/Rodimus combo just being bigger.

    -----------

    Looks like each Abominus has a selling point.

    The large one has it's mass and size going for it
    the scout size ones come with weapons
    and the new one has the alternative head on Hungrrr

    However the colours are a bit bizarre (though I like them) and they have removed some joints it seems like the dino-bird's neck for example.

    But Shockwave's lab journal said he liked to tinker with their CNA so - I'll use that as the excuse.

    You're totally right, but the key point from my initial statement was:



    Those kinds of quirks and flaws pop up on big H's toys without any deep rarity.

    Cassettes without rubsingns or are not that rare mine have none (and are legit toys FROM THE 1980'S).

    But judging if those are legit or not is a question for someone else.

    That card has some very authentic looking warp and wear from age (And I have yet to hear of a KO'r trying to simulate that), and I'm not seeing any tell-tale signs of KO versions, so I'm thinking it's legit.

    I think it's based on United Axalon, but changed to be more gold.

    I have an earlier version of that same oversized mold. Hardly simplified at all. I really like it.

    Man I so want that. Any idea how much that is US??

    Looking at the full tilt, I would say it is the same size as the G1.

    Those are kinda nice.

    That is a good price. I have both the united set and the RTS Windcharger. I love them both.

    I remember seeing something like it a long time ago. Can you say how much that is in US?? Thanks.

    I would be real weary of it with the text in the listing. I would ask for more pictures.
