Might be better when they're transformed correctly, I think that white part should fold again to be on the back.

I like how these are following the Cyberverse toyline by adding that "Cybertronian villains" label to the boxes.

I'm just going to wait for Pounce to start showing up individually on eBay for cheap because I guarantee these will shelfwarm. Personally, I would have wanted the two-pack to just be Pounce and Fastlane, and perhaps a rerelease of Wingspan and Cloudraker.

Also, are these the Takara variants? Because I swear the purple parts are pink on the Hasbro releases.

I was wondering where that phrase came from. I was a little worried "Decepticon" was being phased out, but I guess it's just a good way to group Decepticons, Predacons, Quintessons, etc. together.

They are keeping Europe in mind, if the packaging is anything to go by. Now the world's standard including the US, with 25 languages in total.

Let's hope. I thought the same for the rainmaker pack but that was almost impossible to find. Kapow and In Demand are pretty good at getting some target exclusives though thanks

These have map pieces, that upends a few theories about how future waves are being spread out between classes. Unless they're duplicates which just supports a whole different set of theories. :-?

Already splurged on Takara's 2-pack at the end of TR, and have the Hasbro pair, so I'd be more inclined to get these if they had a 3rd deco: namely their Rebirth colors, with gold faces. And I don't even like The Rebirth (my opinion has never been clouded by nostalgia blinders), but I'd definitely end up buying them if they'd tried for Sunbow accuracy.

As is, if Target clearances them down far enough, I might get a pair to customize. I bought all those other upgrades for the other 4 pair of TR Clones that I haven't even gotten around to applying yet.

New Video Review of Transformers Earthrise Titan Class Scorponok

Postby ZeroWolf » Thu Apr 30, 2020 4:19 pm

Motto: "My past no longer binds my future..."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, LinaNui has informed us that fellow Seibertron user and toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime, has posted a new video review of none other then the forthcoming Titan Class figure from Earthrise, Scorponok! This much anticipated figure is the last of the city bots to be visited in titan class form. While in the old toy, Scorponok's head was the same size as the normal head master figures, this time, he's been approached the same as his rival, Fortress Maximus. This means Scorponok's head turns into another robot with a titan master forming that head in turn.


Check out the review below and sound out your thoughts in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

WOW! I'm thoroughly impressed! He looks very solid and detailed, and the paint is sharp all around. The base mode is crap, but I don't care because mine will never see it. Scorpion mode is okay, but personally I buy Titans for their imposing robot modes. I think it's great that his visor can be removed and he actually has optics underneath. My only complaint is that the back ends of his claws are too long. I know it's for attaching the shield, but it looks like it might get in the way of posing. And I was hoping that he would have actual separated toes instead of 1 block for a foot, and that they would be purple, not gray. Otherwise, this is a home run. He seems to be shorter than TR Maximus, but that might just make him perfectly in scale with G1 Fort Max. I'm definitely getting this figure when it comes out.

I have the G1 Scorponok original and he's one of my favorite. This Titan don't disappoint. The most amazing is how they managed the scorpion legs storage to make them disappear. Simple yet effective. However, WHERE IS HIS BIG GUN? That's missing. I also know Full-Tilt will be available separately. But for his main hand gun and maybe the radar dishes for city mode, a 3P upgrade kit will be pretty much mandatory.
Regardless of it's faults (and the obvious hollow parts) is a sure buy for me.

He doesn't need the gun. It was awkward for the original toy to have it as well.

As a fan and owner of the G1 original, I don't agree at all. Sure, holding it was awkward but it's just a nice touch of overkill.

Plus the G1 big gun split in two and act as towers for the city mode and that's genius.

Preordered mine from amazon with discount a while back, hoping the savings can go to an upgrade set for him.

The non splayable fixed legs are crap and doesn't look like they can be upgraded easily or if at all. Base modes lacking a lot of the orange bits and bobs (even if g1s lift was unusable). Robot mode- if the chrome bits can attach to legs instead of the pretty poor looking shield it might be better.

Def needs his other shoulder guns preferably pivoting with replacements for those he comes with and his two piece hand gun would be nice. Looks like a cthru visor will be doable too which is nice.

The feet def look better than they did in the toy fair photos. Not sure where or if Scorponok has any connectivity to other bases or if he's getting blast effects.

You can make the silver on his legs by having a dinkier shield.
But eh, this beast beg for an upgrade kit. With the insane amount of ports he have all over, we could add anything.
