    He's got 3 of them.
    A lot of the bits do turn up fairly regularly; this guy,for example

    has quite a few pieces (I have dealt with that seller a few times in the past; he's VERY good). Some can be hard to track down (Fasttrack's guns, for example), but the parts that will let you display him are fairly easy to get on the whole.

    thx drave.

    ouch. lord zarak goes for as much as FM's spike does. thats like, half of what the scorpy body cost for me. hmm, might wanna wait for a more complete one. not fan of scrounging up parts.

    Would wait for a complete one. Or just get the headless one and draw a smiley face up there

    I see Zarak pop up probably more than most other headmasters.

    yeah, i dont mind looking up scorpys other bits, but im thinkin having zarak would be crucial when i start out with him. aint gonna jump the gun on this one.

    Definitely do it that way man. When I got mine three years ago, I saw how much Zarak went for alone and just waited until I found an ebay lot with a body in decent shape and the head. Mine's still missing quite a few accessories, but I did get the gun a holster with it...I just need to get a second silver tower and I'd be perfectly happy with mine the way it is.

    Unless you are getting it dirt cheap, buying a Skorp missing Zarak is not a winning plan. Sadly, Zarak can be as much as 50% of the value of the complete toy.

    I had the same shot at a scorp with no head a while back also, checked out the cost of accessories, wound up getting a 100% complete scorponok a couple weeks later for less than it would have cost me to piece it all together.
