Earthrise Scorponok is ready to ship out in a few weeks and we are getting more photos of him in hand. Takara posted images showing his scale with other Titans like Metroplex, Fortress Maximus, and Trypticon. We also have an image of him and all his Transformers Earthrise brethren which includes a properly transformed Earhrise Arcee, the Quintesson judge, Doubledealer and Snapdragon.

What do you think of the scale, and will you be getting this Titan day one or waiting for a sale?

Let us know!

i think it's perfect that he's about the same height as Fort Max.

Too much "want" on one page.

Man Trypticon is too short. Oh well.

Alicons aren't voyagers. Not that I'd mind huge aligators, but they seem to be just a bit taller than cliffjumper.

Much better looking than G1 Fort Max vs G1 Scorponok.

I would love to see a comparison shot with G1 Fort Max.

I'll do it.....

When over 9000 other will have already done.
Because I didn't preorder and I know it will be on sale sooner or later.

Love all the micromasters inconspicuously posed leaning against bigger bots' legs cause only, like, half of them can stand on their own. Great little guys, but they definitely stay in vehicle mode most of the time.

That aside, I can only dream to have those four Titans lined up one day, Unicron in the middle. If I can afford them maybe I can afford a strong enough shelf to hold them... :michaelbay:

I don't know about that. Ever since Trypticon was hugely discounted, they haven't really done it. I've still only ever seen Omega Supreme stay full price, if not sold out completely.

One thing for sure. Wetawds price drops like for Metroplex and Triptycon is a thing of the past. Now they seem to not overproduce the titans and they seem to be fairly distributed. Sales still happen but they are more "normal".

When Omega came back in stock at Walmart at 200$CAN instead of the normal 250$CAN, I made sure to get him. It was around the 3rd time I saw it on sale, but the sales mostly happen at Toys R Us.

It will be the same thing with Scorpy. I'm not paying 250$+ for him, but at 200$ or lower, I'll bite.

Well IMO Scorponok is the best-looking Titan yet, so I think he's worth the preorder price. I just hope he doesn't turn out to be hollow everywhere like Metroplex and be really light. But it doesn't seem to be the case.

The shelf strength struggle is real! I have a shelf that's bowing in the middle from Legends Grand Maximus's weight. No idea how I'm going to display Unicron...

Man Airwave is looking really good. The Alicon too...don't have him on preorder, might have to hunt for him when he's released

Since army building isn't exactly cheap, I'm planning to get just a pair of Allicon to flank the Quintesson, with the idea that these are his goons which protect him. Getting just one is not enough for something meant to be army built but he's still a Deluxe and those obviously aren't completely cheap. Two seems like a good number: enough to form a guard position around the Quintesson, as well as to display in different modes, no?

My first thought when I saw Skylynx was the Defiant Shuttle Complex.

The only reason they made Metroplex's Titan toy so tall was to make it surpass G1 Fort Max in height so that it could be the new "tallest TF EVAR!"... only for Titan class Fort Max to take back that title a mere three years later, and which will be claimed anew by Planet class Unicron next year.

And the result of making Metroplex that tall was a Metroplex who was too skinny (G1 Metroplex was CHUNKY!) and too weak in the hips. Had the toy been just a bit shorter, then some of the mass that went into his height could have instead been used to better his proportions and stability.

yeah they could have done a better job all around
the one thing that bothered me the most was his ramp in city mode it was way too short

I wonder if we will see a Titan Metroplex 2.0 eventually?

Because seriously, the fact that he's so thin and tall affect the base mode as well, where it's just the bot sitting down. A chunkier bot like Omega Supreme could result in a much better city mode.

I hope we see an updated Metroplex. Not just a straight reissue, but a reworked, more proportionate figure. Maybe a Titan version of the G1 figure?
