    I got Energon Scorpinok the other day, and man. It really is something.

    Its a huge, stiff, mass of fiddly joints and hinges with articulation comparable to some G1 figures. And I love it.

    Its just so much fun. I can hardly put the thing down.

    I'm gonna work on a photo comic for him. Expect it here probably later today.

    I had the Dark Scorponok from Cybertron. It's probably awful but I love it. So fun and, to my knowledge, the only figure that accepts the collectibles from all 3 of the UT series

    Dont have many from these lines, skipped them all when originally out. My original TF collection was stolen bout 5-6yrs ago. Been rebuilding since then. These are the Unicron Trilogy figures i enjoyed and have re-obtained since.
    I am still on the lookout for an Overload and a Nemesis Prime, my 2 favorites that i did own before. If anyone has a line on some for sale that arent $50-100(why is Overload so damn pricey all of a sudden!!??), please let me know!

    Interesting, I sold my upgrades quites in same time, in order to revert to the vanilla look.

    Same for Bruticus.

    I realized that with all these upgrades, it mades transformation really less fun and I was no longer playing with them, letting them getting dust on the shelves.

    After all, if I want more G1-esque combiners there's CW.

    Finally got a spare energon scorponok to mess around with and decided to tackle the notorious jet-mode shoulder break. Managed to greatly reduce the pressure on the joint by simply shaving down the lip on either side of the orange ladder detail that is used in conjunction with the green part from the torso to make the pseudo-ratchet. Looked around to see if anyone ever figured out this, in retrospect, obvious solution and didn't see any mention. So I figured this would be as good a place as any to drop it.

    What a great Megs. Does anybody have the siege cyber train prime to compare to Galvatron here? Wondering if the size difference is acceptable.

    If there are three figures from my childhood circa 2003-2005 that I would love to get again, or see get the chug treatment it's Unicron (actually still available so definitely up for consideration...), Energon Scorponok, and the biggest of boys, Overload.
    Actually Overload would make a great Leader class Weaponizer for Siege, akin to how he fused with Optimus in Armada.
    Someday. Someday.

    You'd be better off getting a whole new Primus, guy.

    That's what it seems like. Although the rest of the bot is complete so I'm a little hesitant on that. Its pretty expensive to find one complete.
