What would have Scorponok's real robotic form would have looked like if they had done it in the movie?

This Scorponok's robot mode looks better than the deluxe version, just... give him a neck.

The others are meh.

I saw a couple of these two packs at Target yesterday, but I don't normally collect mini-figures, so I passed. Still though, the mini-brawl is cool looking.

Scorpy is like a tiny version of his lovely Deluxe figure.

The others are all hilariously bad. Battle Damaged Jazz is somewhat odd, only Jazz's robot mode got damaged???

The Movie line truly is scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

Scorponok looks better than the original :APPLAUSE: nice Hasbro makin' the 5.00 versio better. Ice Megatron battle Jazz I see Hasbo is trying to use every mold they have as much as they can but since they could only usethe molds for the movie toys at least I think so but they could probably put them in the Classics or Animated line if they just took the details off them

I'm getting that Scorponok! I'm one of Dlx Scorp's few supporters, I even modded his bot mode to move his tail up onto his back. He's great IMHO.

That Jazz, on the other hand, is crap. I just got the first Allspark Battles Jazz, the one that comes w/ Brawl or Bonecrusher- it's identical in markings and coloration to this new one, and it's crap. It feels like it's made of a diff. material, lighter than the original Legends Jazz, and mine came pre-cracked at the sliding arm joint for my convenience. The window coloring sucks, and they can apparently only afford one set of grill paint apps, so they left the car mode grill unpainted. Yuck. He's lucky I didn't go polar bear on his sorry little ass and eat him right then and there. (Wow, lotsa anger there, huh? WTH?)

Anyway, Legends Scorponok is going to join my Dlx, Robot Heroes, 3D Battle Card, and Burger King versions. Scorpo-licious.

Your not alone in liking dlx Scroponok. I do too.
I'm not a fan of the legends class but I may get
the one for Scroponok.
I'd seen the robot heroes Scroponok at Walmart today,
it's very tempting, if only he transformed.

He rocks. Cool if he works out to scale with Voyager Blackout.

I fear I'll end up with these guys because I like them a little too much (the Legends, in general I mean). And the urge to collect little Camaros doesn't help, either.

That said, next movie Jazz I end up with is getting painted red and renamed Zoom-Zoom regardless of size class.

Actually, the Legends Megatron is by far the most movie accurate of the four movie Megatron toy molds.

Jazz is pretty decent, too.

Bumblebee kinda blows, tho.

The little Scorponok looks pretty good (I have all the other Legends so I might as well get this little guy too!), but I agree with what the others say about the battle damage It just doesn't look good

I think these legends figures look terrible to say the least. I just can't see spending my limited cash flow on these things. The ONLY legends size figure I have is Vector Prime and it looks like it will stay that way.

IF this scorponok is small enough to fit in Blackout's cargo room, I just might want it :lol: at least he would be colored, not pale white...

Skorpinok is kind of nice. I agree with others-it's actually more compelling than the deluxe from an overall figure standpoint. Other than him, the others are pretty crappy. Icy Megatron looks especially stupid.
