More images of Shadow Scyther have been posted, this time in robot mode. They were attached to an ebay auction for the armor set. Secondary market prices on Shadow Scyther, Shattered Glass Rodimus and Henkei Wildrider have really shot through the roof. These images show us both faces.

Oh how it pains me that not only did I miss out on Wildrider, but also Shadow Syther.

I can't help but see a cheesy smile whenever I look at the secondary faceplate.

Where does the scythe go in alt mode?

I've got to admit, I like this black repaint!

Cool add on product.

The same place Sidearm goes in Alt Mode maybe?
With the answer to that being "Doesn't look like it attaches anywhere that I know of."
Might be able to stick the scythe pieces inside the trailer, albeit without being attached to anything.


Anyways, Loving the Silver Face for this one, compared to Rodimus'.

I saw pics of this set a couple of days ago comparing it on SG Rodimus and Wildrider, and I find it pretty neat how the colors seem to work for one or the other in slightly different ways, almost to the point where it might be a travesty to not to have both Wildrider and SG Rodimus to display with it! Since I have neither one, I guess it doesn't matter.

Also

this scene makes more sense now.

This is a cool set...much better paint job than the Protector armor I think...

That being said, this may be a horrible business decision on their part. This armor was designed for Shattered Glass Rodimus...however, the number of figures produced of that character is EXTREMELY small compared to the potential sales base of Rodimus (Henkei and Hasbro). They could make a serious mistake if they make as many of these armors as they do Protectors as tons of product will sit in warehouse because there simply aren't as many SG Rodimus figs as regular ones. Hope this doesn't bite them in the ass.

The set was limited to 600 pieces. 300 to TFSource, 300 to RobotKingdom.

i thought it was a huge risk buying wildrider for this set but now seeing it i think i made the best decision, although it does also look good with sg roddy also..im just glad i didnt waste the $300 on a would be $150 dollar figure

After looking at Scyther, I've kind of lost my excitement in the figure. For the cost of getting this on the secondary market, I just don't feel that it's worth it. Doesn't look as bad ass as I thought it would be, the Scythe's serrated teeth look off. So I'll stick with MG Gundam Deathscythe..

Video chat on the next Podcast. I'll just waive Shadow Scythe around until you change your Canadian mind.

I should get mine next week. They holding mine for me because I pay for my orders :grin:

If you see how much this has been going for since they released the preorder you should be glad you got one at $100...which my cost was $94. :grin:

This was the cheapest:

I can't believe the prices on Shattered Glass Rodimus. I saw an auction end at $612.99.

Since when do they care?

I must admit though that I also don't think too highly of the red fists, would of been nice if it came with extras so you could swap to your taste, though personally I think the left hand shouldn't be there at all :)

The Rodimus face does look as if he was powered up though, as if his mustache even became armour.
