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.

So... Animated Prime and Movie Jazz went into a bar, and in the morning they woke up in front of a tattoo saloon "bottle damaged"... :???:

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

Now thats bad. They really need to make a real robot mode for scorp. And this battle damage trend is getting old.

Scorponok looks alright, the rest, well if I haven't bought them yet...

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.

Mini-Scorp FTW

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.

I love the little Scorpinok, all the other legends are crumby as hell...

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
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (599359)
Posted by Collector Maximus on January 10th, 2008 @ 1:43am CST
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...

legend Scorponok looks better than his deluxe incarnation. :D

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.

From the looks of it, mini Scorpy is capable of transforming into the fanmade Japanese Monster/Dragon mode. He's already a definite buy to me, but that would make him a great Mini-Me to my monster Dlx Scorp

New legends?
Holy crap scorponok! It's AWESOME! he's so cute but better looking than the deluxe at the same time! i'm lovin him!
i don't like the way they did the "battle damage" on jazz. It looks the same as on that "voyager" animated prime.
this ice megatron is just pathetic. he's got a less detailed paintjob than the original (and that one was FANTASTIC). boo.
but still, i'm absolutely amazed by the scorponok.
Pleeeeease, hasbro, ship some of the 2-packs to poland!

I'll jump on the "Scorps looks bloody fantastic" bandwagon, I reallt dig it. I have passed on legends Bumblebee several times, but to get Scorpy, I may risk it.

Indeed. He is. Now i wonder why does the FAB not transform like the legends buddy. This just does not make ANY sense.

This Legend Scorponok is even better than Deluxe version. It's got real legs, and the tail can be folded up.

Dam. I should have waited for this before buying Deluxe.

That would definitely be cool, but I don't think it'll work out. You'd have to be able to rotate his pincers out flat, and given that the average movie legends figure only has twelve parts, I doubt it can do that.

If they ever come individually, I might get a second Scorpy and reglue them just for the fun of it.
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (600095)
Posted by Rushie on January 10th, 2008 @ 5:22pm CST
His pincers seem unarticulated, but they don't end in a point, more like a flat surface, which might be enough to make him stand on his pincers. Too bad his scorpion legs are inmobile, for they had to form the hands of Dragon Scorp.

Yeah, won't be perfect, but there's probably just about enough posability to get the overall effect.

So the bumblebee had 2 battle damage marks that are new too?
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (601799)
Posted by Rushie on January 12th, 2008 @ 9:26am CST
They're only painted on, which apparently counts as different enough to call him a repaint. Meh, they should've switched the yellow and black and call him Stealth BB.

And now we've got three very similar Jazz Legends figs. They could've been the Original, FB damage Jazz and G1 homage Jazz

I was just at Target and saw a few 2 packs, but not this one.
As much as I like the look of 'Nok, I can't stand that Bumblebee.
So far I only like the looks of Scorpy, Bonecrusher, and reg. Jazz.
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (602004)
Posted by The Chaos Bringer on January 12th, 2008 @ 2:41pm CST
Scorponok's robot mode is leagues better than the deluxe's. He has real legs now, and overall just looks more transformed.

I missed out on the legends first time around, so I'll be getting these.
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (602052)
Posted by Gojira Prime on January 12th, 2008 @ 4:21pm CST
What's really funny is how out of scale the legends are. I mean, Jazz is now bigger than Megatron. Must be a hastle to tear that in half :lol:
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (602076)
Posted by Scaleface on January 12th, 2008 @ 5:00pm CST
All legends are about 4 inches tall.

Legends Jazz is 1/52 scale.

Legends Megatron 1/142 scale.

If you want those two to scale, try using Legends Jazz with Voyager Megatron. He's 1/59 scale.

I'm attaching a picture of what they would look like in scale as toys.

Deluxe Jazz is a bit big of a scale. I don't know exactly what scale he's in. But he's supposed to be smaller than Bumblebee.
Re: First Look at New Transformers Movie Legends Figures (610925)
Posted by imotron on January 21st, 2008 @ 10:01pm CST
If you look at the front part of the car's grill it does looks in a bigger scale compare to the human, smaller it should be... I suggest :grin:
