...yeah, that was a concern.

And, no, I'm posting from my phone in an airport. I can't attach the image, even if I care to.

There's no non-UT mold to get a new Scoop from, is there.

Uh oh.

Well, that appears to be a recolored Cybertron Landmine right there...

EDIT: Oh, no, I tell a lie, those are just his hinges, not folded-back exhaust pipes... plus, y'know, no other details lining up...

I too dispute your claim!

Ah well. At least Scoop dies knowing Wheeljack's blacks are gloriously Marvel blue.

Scoop and his Double Targetmasters getting face time? Awesome.

Scoop and his Double Targetmasters as cannonfodder/bodycount filler? Terrible.

Scoop and his Double Targetmasters prefiguring an upcoming FP toy? Interesting. Possibly cool depending on how it might be pulled off. I'll be honest as characters I find the two Nebulans kinda more interesting than Scoop.

Scoop with Double Targetmaster partners as an early hint at a Hasbro 2013 toy = Awesome, but very VERY speculative.


-ZacWilliam, has some nostalgia for Scoop from his childhood owning him, but there are a lot of toys from that year I'd be even more excited about...

Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?

That artwork is clearly based on the G1 toy. Scoop's a goner.

By that logic EVERYONE in the image besides Metalhawk is a goner. icon-waspy.gif


-ZacWilliam, All G1 models NOT based on modern toys if ya look...

I am gonna give you all this one little reveal. We'll call it an Allspark exclusive... I guess I should throw up a Spoiler tag.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Scoop does not get a new body

Scoop is not cannon fodder

Scoop is just... Scoop

Yeah I don't like it how everyone presumes a G1 guy is going to die if he appears in his G1 body. We've had plenty of G1 guys in G1 bodies showing up in Fun Pub stories before.

Tha's not exactly why folks were worried. EVERYONE in that shot is in their original body, after all. Scoop was just the only one without a new current toy.
