ok 1 - what is up with Hasbro's security lately?

2 - why would you remould Scorponok\Mega Zarak, when he's still lining the shelves all over TRU and Zellers? They didn't even bother to repaint him from the looks of it! I mean, if they had been adventerous and given him a Black Zarak look - It MAY have been passible but:
"OH look kids - a Scorponok with a Force chip - You didn't buy the original, but I bet you'll buy this one!"

I thinking more in regards to the TFCC exclusive.

When the guys were in Toronto with it - they were guarding it like Hasbro would have them flogged if they lost it or even got Fanboy grease on it. Now the bloody thing shows up on Ebay.

Even still - it seems that lately, EVERYTHING has been leaked. There's no real point for hasbro to show up at toy shows or conventions to unveil anything - we've seen it all already.

Doubt that's the actual color scheme, as these are prototypes, but I agree that it doesn't make sense to release another one when there are ones wasting away on shelves (it's a shame, really. He's a cool figure. I blame the price that they want. I'd say he's worth $20, not $25-30, as most places were selling him when he came out . . .

I'm sure I've seen that pic somewhere else before now...

BTW, am I alone in thinking it really not worth joining for that?

No. I certainly wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Well considering if I joined at TFCon in Toronto. I would have recieved the two back issues of the magazine (yeah....:rolleyes: ) Along with that piece when ever it gets released. Beyond that I'd have to pick up the other pieces out of pocket. All for the Bargin price of like $82!

The colours look good as a prototype with the clear. But to be honnest - I cannot, in any way, justify $82 for an Energon Repaint - no matter the exclusive. And this is coming from the guy who bought most of the Ehobby exclusives......

You're not paying $82 for this figure. You're paying the money for the club newsletter, the exclusive comic, shopping at the Club Store at reduced prices... the exclusive figure is FREE.

Another one:

Red Exillion.

Which is supposed to be a Japan-exclusive repaint that comes with a limited edition of the first Galaxy Force DVD.

Which means it's another Takara leak(remember loose Masterpiece Ultra Magnus?).

Something I haven't yet seen anyone remark as being worthwhile... maybe if they had several/more/better exclusives... for the moment, though, that's an extremely expensive comic/newsletter.

When preparing a fanboy rant, try at least to not be an uninformed dick.

Of course the toy is being repainted...REMOLDED TOYS ALWAYS HAVE OLD PARTS ON TEST SHOTS.

Christ I hate this fandom.

Wow, the first time I've ever been called uninformed..... nothing like new experiences

Test shots have the base colours for their plastic peices - so they can see how everything meshes (or apperently in the case of Scorpy - don't) and weither there will be any problem with the coloured plastic (Gold plastic is notorious for being crap and having problems). It would make no sense to do a test-shot that is planned on being completely different colours.

While I'm sure Scorpy will get variations in paint scheme, the base colours are going to be the same - and he will still end up looking the same.

If you don't like the Fandom - you don't need to post or act with it. The lovely thing about free will.

Oh! And it's a bit late - Welcome to the Archive - listen to the Mods - and try to have a good time.

I'm thinking that this is something that was leaked before it even made it to that stage.
