    Well a while ago i bought a "mint" G1 Scorponok off ebay UK and noticed that it was far from mint and was faded everywhere.
    After i bought a better Scorponok i decided that the junker one would be great to turn into Black Zarak since i cant get one and dont want a real one since i will brake.

    Big thanks go out to fellow users
    bombatron who did all the gold chrome like the original
    kelvinchang99 who casted the head and staff as well as other parts
    AutoCon2076 who was willing to lend is black zarak head and staff to get casted but just never happened

    I thank you guys for you help and now the pics.
    First few to show the faded parts then Black Zarak himself. I still have to paint the red dots on his arms

    Fantastic job! Looks almost exactly like the original!
    And the best part is, you don't have to worry about him crumbling from GPS any time soon.

    This is awesome! I'm currently waiting on a bare-bones Black Zarak to arrive from ebay.
    I was planning to source the original Scorponok accessories and attempt a repaint, but that would still leave me without the cool staff.

    How much roughly did the towers, ramps and weapons cost?

    I've been thinking about this project more and more and want to make my own. Yours turned out PHENOMENAL. I am very envious, sir.

    This is awesome. :rock  It looks so much like an original. The casting came out perfect and the paint job is dead on. Might have to do this too, as I don't want to mess around with my original Black Zarak.

    Thanks for the reply, I was actually wondering how much it cost for the fellow users on here to repaint these accessories and sculpt the new staff?

    That piece turned out BEAUTIFULLY! Congratulations on owning a Black Zarak that you can transform without the fear of breaking it. You've got the colors damn near perfect! Don't forget about the blue 'eyes' for the scorpion mode on his head, tho! Oh - and I still have no problems letting you make a cast of his crest. If you can find someone for that - hit me up. Unless you have one and forgot to place it in the pics - then you dont need me!

    Yeah, I'm tempted to do something like this cause my BZ is never going to be leaving his box.

    Such a smooth paintjob that looks so factory + unbreakable plastic = One sweet-ass (& playable) Black Zarak! Great job Mate! :thumb 

    I can hear your HM screaming "Where's my arm? I need my arm!" :lol

    Thanks for that. Yea forgot about the purple / Blue eyes on the head but will do them soon. Also i have the crest just forgot to put it on in the photos.

    Thanks Again for everything

    Yea this is the reason i don't want to get a real BZ you pay all that money and you have the possibility that the gold will crack.

    Thanks and the Zarak HM came without his arm, but i can always say that it's a real Black Zarak and his arm was a result of GPS
