I swear, if Hasbro/Takara misses the opportunity to retool Scoop into Scrapper, I will be highly disappointed of them. [-(

I like that reviewer. I haven't seen any of his reviews before. I also like scoop. Not a huge fan of the target master concept and at how banal it is in execution but i like that at least in combined mode Scoop can use both hands to hold the BFG.

I was dying to get this figure but will likely wait and see if Takara will release it. Lots of folks including this reviewer have remarked that the paint apps are bland and lacks details. Also the parts on the figure don't seem to pin well together.

I got this figure today and agree about the relative blandness, however the original toy was the same. Perhaps Reprolabels will step up. This is one good looking robot mode if you ask me, but I feel the nebulans could compact down better for gun mode. They are very long and the handles dont reaally lock into place. I can imagine them drooping with prolonged use. Also totally agree at the front of the vehicle doesnt sit together too well. I found that the shoulders were misaligned which made the vehicle worse. I held one side and pivoted the other with a bit of force and now they are aligned.
