    The claws on Scorp look like they should open (and a picture in the Cool Stuff thread shows this in action for the stalker version). On mine though, the claws don't seem to want to open. How do you do it?

    Just use a little force. They do open.

    Yeah i just discovered this recently. You do have to give it some force-pull from down by where the claw meets the hand, not from the tops of the claws.

    Will it work if you just pull one claw at a time or do you have to somehow apply pressure to all three at once?
    Hmm.
    Just don't want to break it.

    You can do it one at a time.

    I've had this figure since '07 and had no idea his "pinchers" opened until the picture of Stalker Scorponok that the initial poster mentioned was posted a few days ago... Can't believe I missed it!

    /\/\/\ Yeah, exactly...

    Just look at Scorpy's claws, where they meet the silver "forearm", and you will see the pins that attach them. Just turn the "hand" part and line them up with the openings in the "forearm" and pull the pincher back.
