    The hell? I wonder if they were planning on rereleasing it in those colors. If it was a preproduction idea, it doesn't make sense that they'd use it two years after the original was on shelves.

    Weird.... i've never seen that commercial. It looks like they had a G1 Scorponok there and they just switched.

    Really quite bizarre, considering at 0:17 you can clearly see G1 Scorpy's feet in the 'right' colours. But the real moral of this story is "don't let Micromasters park on you, or you'll fall over." :thumb

    If we weren't seeing this released back then, its unlikely that we will see it now. :popcorn 

    I still prefer the original Scorponok's colors. That "Overlord" scheme is abit too bland for my liking.

    Man that's a weird looking Scorponok. I'd actually venture a guess that it was probably a colour fit test model for Metrotitan using the Scorponok mold, just going on what was released at the time. Could have been intended for Zone, could have been used as it was a villain toy, could have been picked purely for the extra arm movement.

    I wonder if it's a future candidate for a Botcon exclusive?

    Was there ever a character devised as such or he was planned as a random Repaint? :sly:

    So true.

    Apparently he was a repaint of this guy: Giant Decepticon Soldier - Transformers Wiki

    Dolza_Khyron was right.

    ^ You really want e-Hobby to release/reissue that thing?

    Hel*, I'm at your opposite as I'll rather see a Reissue copy of Black Zarak.

    *I think I've got the Fandom backing me up on this* :drunk
