Sh Shrapnel Pig can have an army of clones of himself and chew through reinforced metal doors? I am officially afraid now.

@  Autobot Bubbs : (09 December 2016 - 03:46 AM)

Who said his name?

@  The Doctor Who : (08 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

Shrapnel pig, Shrapnel Pig does whatever a Shrapnel can!

@  BlackMax : (08 December 2016 - 06:03 PM)

"Enjoy your shrapnel pig" is now a phrase I will work at random into conversation.

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 06:01 PM)

Enjoy your shrapnel pig, kids!

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 06:01 PM)

How about BWN Randy? GPS paired with a springloaded gimmick.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 05:10 PM)

Find a box of G1 Slog. GPS and rubber shell rot.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (08 December 2016 - 05:08 PM)

The height of Transformer-toy-donation-based cruelty.

@  Bass X0 : (08 December 2016 - 05:06 PM)

Ha! That G2 Slingshot will crumble in their hands! That's pretty hateful.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (08 December 2016 - 05:03 PM)

Donate one of the older figures made entirely of gold plastic. :wtf

@  ShadowMan024 : (08 December 2016 - 04:49 PM)

Okay, that's going way too far.

@  Locoman : (08 December 2016 - 04:38 PM)

Armada Sideswipes for all the boys and girls!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 04:36 PM)

Okay now you're just taking this too far.

@  ShadowMan024 : (08 December 2016 - 04:32 PM)

And if you wanna go to hell, you'll donate a Tuner Mudflap.

@  Bass X0 : (08 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

and if you're really feeling abusive, you will give the gift of Generations Cheetor. probably still some shelf-warming a store somewhere

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 01:51 PM)

In that case, ALL the Rattraps.

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 10:47 AM)

Toys for tots you hate.

@  unluckiness : (08 December 2016 - 09:12 AM)

Poor tots, having to transform that.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 December 2016 - 12:04 AM)

If Rattrap is still there, I'll just buy it for Toys for Tots. Two plus years is too long to see a figure shelfwarm

@  Telly : (07 December 2016 - 09:06 PM)

what length of rope do you think youll need?

@  D.M : (07 December 2016 - 08:59 PM)

He's gonna need more rope.

ShadowMan024's body was never found

@  Bass X0 : (07 December 2016 - 01:58 PM)

Don't say that name three times or He will return.

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 01:50 PM)

She also voiced the main villain in that show Omnios liked on Nicke

@  MEDdMI : (07 December 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Emperor's New School series was fun, too. Eartha Kitt still voiced Yzma

@  BlackMax : (07 December 2016 - 09:03 AM)

That was a brilliant bit.

@  Paladin : (07 December 2016 - 08:29 AM)

Three oinkers wearing pants, plate of hot air, basket of Grandma's breakfast and change the bull to a gill- got it.

@  BlackMax : (07 December 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Dammit I was too late!

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:35 AM)

BOOOOOOO YAAAAAAA-HA-HAAAAAAAAH!

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:35 AM)

Bring it on.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (07 December 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Most likely.

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:20 AM)

Sharp rocks at the bottom?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:28 PM)

No no I did see it. The "yep" follows the waterfall.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2016 - 11:19 PM)

BlackMax.. You've never seen Emperor's New Groove? Stop whatever your doing and go watch it.. And while not nearly as good.. Watch Krunk's new groove as well!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:00 PM)

Yep.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

@  Locoman : (06 December 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Well, you got me. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Why does she even HAVE that lever?

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:38 PM)

WRONG LEVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

@  MEDdMI : (06 December 2016 - 09:37 PM)

Pull the lever, Krunk!

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:33 PM)

The Emperor's New Groove.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 09:33 PM)

I didn't understand that reference.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 09:32 PM)

I...

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:32 PM)

I love that movie.

I read this on the TFWiki, so I figured I'd look it up as I haven't heard anything about this yet.
http://www.hasbro.co...A3751F24FE1.pdf

That's definitely not Straxus' head but Skullgrin's. Though I thought it was bigger than that. I think this PDF makes it look more robotic than I remember too, but that might be either my bad memory or the fact it's lineart in PDF.

It's kinda weird how they keep doing this.

At this rate, Tracks' instructions will have Wheeljack's head.

I wouldn't be surprised if Terradive, Jazz, Perceptor, and Lugnut all have the other head rather than their own in their instructions.

His colors were a lot more 1988 then those. With the gray and same hot pink as the original.

Yeah, I'm not sure why he would have red like that. Skullgrin never had any huge amounts of red. Or any red.

I can't really remember anything about Skullgrin from the slideshow other than that he was mostly light gray with some purple, so most of this is just guesswork. If I were doing it myself, he'd be mostly medium gray with a lighter gray head and some light gray paint.

As I was going along trying to apply the purple and grey, it got to be extremely boring looking. I'd noticed when looking for references for this that the Marvel scans showed Skullgrin's purple parts turned out rather more red. It's a stretch, I don't deny. But it got me an extra color to stick on the robot mode.

Hopefully the actual toy makes a bit better use of just purples and greys. I have to say I never appreciated how uninteresting Skullgrin is from a coloration view before now. Good thing he had that skull-head.

This is closer to how I remember it too. I think his purple was a bit more towards hot pink, but my memory is very foggy on this (other than he was ample amounts gray and purple/pink).

Kind of disappointed, but I guess it was silly to expect a more "accurate" head at such a small size.

Still, I'll be skipping Darkmount and getting Skullgrin for sure.
