    Scorponok is known for being oe of the biggest Decepticon figures to be released.

    My question is.....was there ever an undersized KO of Scorponok? Or perhaps versions of the mold which were official, yet smaller than the first release?

    I have a G1 Scorponok junker that I got many years ago, and now that ive researched about his size and some comparisons to other figures, the scorponok I have is quite undersized to the point where he is dwarfed by Super Ginrai, which in reverse would be the correct size's.

    Anyone care to help?

    Man, Scorponok is huge, I just wish I had the bigger version

    The Plastic on the smaller one I have feels legit

    I did not know of a KO Scorponook, but I'd say, after looking at that, there is.

    Maybe Inikalord just has giant KOs of Galvatron and Powermaster Optimus Prime and Scorponok's the right size? :D 

    In all seriousness, this is the first I've ever heard of this. What's interesting, though, is that that knockoff is about the right size for a real Scorponok's head to be inserted without it looking completely disproportionate in size to his body.

    I had about 3 to 4 rainbow colored KO G-1 1987 Scorponok's that were the same exact size as the original liscensed version. I sold them all almost 17 years ago.

    Wow, this is neat. What you've got there is something that's possibly more rare than a real G1 Scorponok. Just get yourself a set of those G1 headmasters and you've got a good Transector!

    An Ultra-sized Scorponok. Cool beans. Can that thing take a standard Headmaster head?

    Im pretty sure it can, the headmaster readouts still work.

    Yeah I wanna try something like that. Just slightly strapped for cash at the moment to get Zarak and his helmet.


    I wouldnt count on it. There have been so many TF's over the years who have all be KO'ed so many times.
