At least this means he'll have to be a whole new toy. There was always the worry with Scorponok that they'd have painted Fort Max green, put some claws and legs on him and declared the result a scorpion .

Just you watch. Trypticon'll be Metroplex redone in grey with a new head, a tail and the arms shortened.

Huzzah!

I'd have been happy with either Trypticon or Scorponok. Big-ass Decepticons are much needed! Also, they both turn into cool things (I'd be hard pressed to choose between a giant dinosaur or a giant scorpion to be honest).

It would be nice to see a decent Scorponok as well - what ever happened to Perfect Effect's Deathstalker? That would be perfect to stand opposite Warden anyway.

I still say they missed a perfectly good opportunity not including a black repaint of Tailgate with the Platinum Trypticon.

So I'll be able to give random robots a comically over sized dinosaur head?

Probably just be a bigger version of the snap dragon mould. With more stickers. Less phallic stomach thingy.

A GoBot with a Pretender shell based on a Battle Beast?

Combiner Wars giftsets [G2 Superion, Menasor, Victorion] up for PO at Kapow, 89 pounds a piece.

Actually works cheaper than getting all the bots at those pricepoints individually.

Might get Victorion at some point.

Some top class fun and games going on in TFW2005's news section right now.

A day after they reported that somebody's found a Combiner Wars Computron in TRU's computer, a picture has emerged of Brawl with a drill instead of a barrel, which is now being reported as speculative evidence of... Combiner Wars LioKaiser.

As opposed to, y'know, a mock-up of Nosecone like logic would dictate. Or just somebody twatting about.

But yeah, anyway, possible Computron boxset on the way.

Isn't drill-Brawl part of that hideous CW Tripredacus-with-five-members that the club is doing for BotCon, anyway?

I could totally see them doing a quick cash-in Technobot box set after all the outrage that one wasn't getting made, though.

Well well well.

Though it turning out to be true doesn't make the initial leap any less crazy.

Does make sense though. Easy vehicle recyc, straight Nosecone repaint if they're doing Computron, plus answers the nagging question of how they get a mould reuse out of Sky Lynx.
