    Scorponok's a far more iconic use of the mold, but somehow I find Double Punch's deco way more attractive.

    I just got the Energon one and I love it. I don't really like the Botcon one.

    I like the fiesta colors on the original AM figure this exclusive uses as a reference. Is the head a re-sculpt or the same as the original Energon/Cybertron versions? I ask because I looked at the bot mode pic for only a few seconds.

    Funny how AM Doublepunch originally served as an homage to Black Zarak. So this is more like Botcon 2010 Black Zarak with FIESTA COLORS.

    Neither - a dark Scorponok repainted into BlackZarak is the best use of the mold.

    Eh... I get the appeal behind Black Zarak (as the old fashion tip says, "everything goes with black"), but I'd rather see that mold as G1 Scorponok. Black, red, and gold isn't nearly as unique as purple, green, and orange.


    But, of the choices here (Energon Scorpy or BC DP), I like Double Punch. As Satomiblood said, it IS Black Zarak, in fiesta colors :D

    Man, I wish they'd repaint this guy in G1 colors. But that'd be too obvious. And that means it'll never happen.
