    Props to Money-B (Hisstank.com member), this is all his idea/commission.
    I did the customizing, tail mod & name/backstory.

    Note the tail mod now allows tail to actually SHOOT !

    Cobra S.K.O.R.P. (Silent Killer Offensive Recon Patrol).
    Also referred to by Cobra troops as SK's or SK units.
    These little devils patrol Cobra Desert territory "swimming" in the sand, under and above the surface.
    Using a new silent technology they cannot be heard under the desert surface, leaving Joes at a disadvantage.
    Cobra Desert Troops have a micro chip in their boot heels so the SK's know who's game and who's not, any surface movement detected by SK units not emitting the "friendly" signal is fair game.
    This working prototype unit is under going testing and may be produced in numbers should tests yield desirable results.
    Relatively cheap to produce(about the cost of 3 BATs), technology is scaled down from a partially recovered alien source.
    The armored body is its strong point, conventional weapons can create light surface damage but for the most part remain ineffectual.

    Note to Cobra Desert Troops...keep your boots on !

    Love the paint. I hope you glued him up real good to keep anyone from ever changing him into that, *ahem* "Robot mode".

    TTT, your the king of BD/Zombies.
    But when you decide to make a "clean" bash,
    you put all the "haters" to shame.
    Hell of a job, my friend. HELL OF A JOB !!!!

    I have seen a few folks crop the stinger down, I plan on doing the same as well, but actually I have seen it far less than I would have expected! So you permanently glued it in Scorp mode?

    Thanks guys...dead robots will be back sometime soon I'm sure :D 
    Yes, mainly cause this custom was never intended to be a TF, just a "bot".
    Also cause the way he transforms his sides pop out of place with gentle handling, most annoying really.
