    All the listings we got, and this just shows up?
    Interesting.
    Hasbro may still have some things hidden up their sleeves.

    Whaaaaaaaaaat?

    If this bot is reissued I'll be definitely taking one :) 

    It's better than the Kingdom version.

    I would be extremely surprised if the bee gimmick doesn't break right out of the box. That was already an issue in the original toy and the mould is decades old now.

    I’m also surprised by the spring-loaded gimmicks.
    I thought Hasbro doesn’t do those anymore.

    They're intact in the BW Op reissue aren't they?

    Like the tweaked colours. It's a very nice toy, I've just rebuilt my original to have two missile fists

    Insta-buy!

    Glad to see he’s more charcoal than black.

    Man I loved this thing as a kid, was gutted when the claw trigger broke so I’ll happily pick up a reissue for nostalgia. I really like the Kingdom figure, but this one can go on my desk at work.

    I’d also happily take a reissue of Inferno without the clear plastic, it’d be nice to own that mold without the joints all crumbling to dust.

    Neat, will probably pick this one up depending on price, might even use it as my main Scorponok for my Beast Wars shelf over the Kingdom one since I generally like the looks of this one more. Might paint the little diamond shape on his chest yellow though.

    The cartoon-accurate deco is sure nice. I never liked the shiny black on the original toy.
