    I been wanting to do a Black Zarak forever. I finally took the time to get this guy done. He's a made from a G1 Scorponok (thats thyViper for the hook up)

    I gave him 2 heads, one repo BZ Head and a classic style version I designed from a some stuff I had in the parts bins.

    Also designed a new Spear, its 2ft tall. I wanted it to be the side of Fort Max to make up for his height.

    I managed to add about 6 inches to the Figure standing from Head to toe at 17 1/2 inches.
    If you count the Stinger he's about 20 inches.

    Waist articulation.
    New Knees
    Swivel arm
    Heads on Ball joints
    Extended the Tail 3 inches.

    Heres the pics. Thanks for checking him out!

    New Pics, added Hydra Mode!

    Simply stunning. Love the simple colours and yet, you still manage to impressively channel Black Zarak. Keep up the awesome work.

    That's a really nice updated head you made. All in all, a very nice figure. Anything that's Japanese G1 (toy or cartoon) gets my vote.

    What an awesome custom! and I'm still struggling with my BZ replica :(  Can't find an extra claw anywhere!

    I don't think a lot of people keep track of the Hydra mode but it would be awesome to see this one do that. Love the new staff! Why not use a metal rod next time? That way it won't bend like it does now.

    I like the new head a lot better than the original. Great work.

    Perhaps some more lighting with infinite white/grey background
    would do this one more justice ?

    Thanks, the new pics are great ! Together with Scorponok, Dreadwind, Quake and Landmine, this one remains to be amongst my 1988 favs.

    Yep, I definitely like the new proportions due to the articulated limbs and the somewhat smaller new headsculpt; I've always felt the standard Black Zarak head was a bit too big, making him look like a bit of a toddler.
