But seriously, this guy just keeps looking better the more I see of him. The Double Targetmasters were a big part of what made '88 my favorite year, so the bar for Scoop and co. is pretty high in my mind, but this toy sails right over it!

Scoop was never an outstanding character, and I think that's part of his charm. This one will be added to my shelf ASAP.

Agreed, seems unfinished. Very cheap looking.

Very well said, my friend.

that being said, I like the robots but when the ''assemble'' both targetmasters, they pretty much look like two robots lying on top of one another. they look better separated:)

gotta say, I like him. A little visually overpowering perhaps, but he is very accurate, and yet plenty updated too. Love his wee dudes, and Autobot construction vehicles always have that "something to prove" vibe that makes me like them, like an F15 trying to be heroic!

CaptainMagic wrote:I like him because he's so very, very close to a semi-realistic loader altmode, but it really bums me out that there are basically no true-to-life construction machines in Transformers. The likenesses are always just close enough that ninety percent of people won't care, and the few of us fans that grew up with the real thing in our back yards just have to deal with it. In this guy's case, he has no articulation point for steering, and the proportions are off. I'll tell myself it's a Cybertronian loader and be happy, but it still sucks that they can't go spend ten minutes looking at real machines before they okay the toys.
Any closer, and Hasbro will have to deal with the lawyers from Caterpillar

I'm betting they'll do a Scrapper repaint at some point, and I'll buy that too. Great stuff!
