    I think the art is just taking artistic liberty and we're not getting anything.

    the more I see of the new ion blaster and ER prime...the more I’m inclined to agree with @daimchoc. It really does seem more suited for a leader class Optimus proportions.

    I just transformed him yesterday into scorpion mode and he's a BEAST! Impressed with how much larger he seems to be in this mode

    Starscream with Reprolabels. Reprolabels comes with a smirk face, but I might take it off.

    That smirk decal makes Starscream look like he's on an episode of Robot Chicken.

    The labels inside the shoulder intakes look great, though.

    I recently collected all the Netflix deluxe figures and put the diorama they come with in my Earthrise collection. I like how it looks.

    If you'd be able to fill the whole of the shelve with a full background (sides and floor included), it would be outstanding.

    Yeah! I think Netflix wave 2 comes with the other pieces for a complete diorama. Can’t wait to see how it will look!

    Speaking of Netflix dioramas, if anyone is interested in discarding theirs, I’m more than happy to take them off your hands.

    Interesting how Scorponok listings mention a blaster (separate from the cannons)...maybe they meant the tail?

    Anyhow, if you want a giant 'blaster' now for bot mode, this is one setup we tried using his tail.

    1. The tail cannot peg into the claw directly (the post widths are not the same). Use the shield pieces as adaptors as shown.
    scorpblast1.jpg

    2. Then put the shield pieces together (basically, half the shield will be in reverse). The 4 pegs connecting the shield pieces together will then bear the weight of the tail blaster. Of course, if one doesn't like the hollow plastic showing on this side, it can be reversed by undoing the large orange mushroom pegs to reverse the orange pieces.

    "Even I can do this better than your feeble King Posiedon!"
    "Ahhh...."
