Black Zarak: I aim to own an original one day, but made this to display in the meantime (actually, I'll probably only display this one even when I own the fragile original!). This is a repainted G1 Scorponok (or several frankenstein'd Scorponoks anyway) with a KO Zarak headmaster and a partial Darkov resin kit for the key Black Zarak items (head, staff, visor, etc). The resin parts are of OK quality and fit a bit loose. A few minor modifications were made to make these usable on this figure. The Darkov staff was warped and very fragile, so I replaced the long part of the staff with tubing that will be more sturdy and lengthened it a bit too. All red parts received new red paint and the gold was custom mixed to look closer to the original's hideous "gold" plastic. Thanks to Concepts in Chrome, the chest and the leg guards are actually gold "chrome". The stickers are from Reprolabel's Scorponok kit (I also tried the other repro-set that is on Ebay, but felt this was of better quality although frankly neither look exactly like the real thing close-up). I have not yet acquired all of the smaller accessories to paint for the full city mode; but after years I finally have a body for my HeadRobots Night Rider!
