Hello Transformers Fan everywhere, sorry for not updating the blog so often. Have been busy with class and life everyday. Only left 1 months and 1 week before the premier of the fourth live action movie Transformers Age of Extinction or AoE and of course with new movie, we get new movie toy lines. On 16th May Midnight, i and the Members of TransMY got the chance to join the Toy R' Us Malaysia Transformers AoE Midnight Madness special launch of the new movie toy lines.

I mainly will review the difference and comparisons of Chrome Scorn with normal Scorn. Below is the CG image of scorn, whether Scorn will come out in movie or not is still not known until now. I guess we have to wait and see the movie then :p .
By the way i notice that CG Scorn have 2 fins on top of his body while the toy have only one fin.

The figure come in a small black box with a big Autobots logo. Obviously the only difference with other Chrome figure's box is the name display on the box (Duhh...). Other than that, all the box have the same design.

The Figure (Dinosour mode) :
Out of packaging, the chrome figure felt heavier than the normal scorn. Wow, just wow when i held it the first time. The joints are tight and even the rubber part (the Fins) are chromed but the coating are not perfect. Some of the area are not coated especially the head and inner part of the body. I only transform twice (If you have one, please be very careful especially on the fins part).

|One of the part that left un-chromed :( Boooo...|

Robot Mode :
The part that not chromed is more obvious in robot mode. The head is not even chromed and i think it was purposely left out.

|From the back, you can see the fins are twisted a bit due to rubber material and chrome coating|
