    *Updated* My first major custom, Classics Scorpinok

    *Update 1/23/2010*
    So im getting some where with him. His tail and alt mode head are done and attached, i just have to paint him now. LMK what you think of him.

    *Finaly an update 12/8/09*
    So i finaly got some time to get to finishing this custom. I have been able to make him into a headmaster after all. I think this came out very well, and for my first custom im very happy with the result. I have all ready figured out and made all necessary cuts to make the scorpion head, just have to attach it, with luck this weekend. Tell me what you think.

    *Update 8/24/09*
    Added the mockup tail attachment. As you can see its made up of several Cybertron Scrapmetal limbs giving me the articulation i wanted and the relative size i need. Next up is the scorpion head. Let me know what you think.

    Well here is my first major custom. I got the idea after i made my Classics Shockwave from a Energon Shockblast. I knew i could use the claw arm for something. Then i saw Cybertron Menasor and said thats the base for Scorpinok. So the main body comes from Menasor, the arms come from Shockblast and Sixshot (no clue what im going to do with him yet, suggestions welcome). The head is a combination of Energon Scorpinok and a turned upside down back half of Cybertron Defense Scattorshot. Tell me what you think of this so far, about 50% done, head, tail, and paint left. No head master but i will include some target masters and a new master class i have thought of, Internal Power Masters, back story will follow when he is completed. Thanks for looking.

    Nice to see a Scorponok not based on the Energon one!

    I like this so far, but am also curious about alt-modes (And tail....)

    Thanks for the comments guys.
    Redline - he will not have a base mode, cant make it work, maybe with a large base figure i could have, but im not to worried about it, i just wanted him to be more of a fighter than a base.
    destrongerlupus - I feel the same way, i never liked the original Engergon version of Scorpinok and every time he is repainted i die just a little inside.
    * Update *
    I think i have figured out the tail, i will post a picture of him and the mock-up of where it will attached later today.

    Luv your vision & your out-of-the-box thinking - I definitely wouldn't have visualised Scorponok from that Cyb mold... heh

    I really like where this is going!

    However, i dont like the tail... is too small compared to the overall body... plus it shouldnt be on the mid back like that

    You should try to use Energon Scorponok tail and mount, maybe with some work it could work :)

    Very cool, though it gives me more of a Cybertron/Energon-ish vibe than Classics. :)

    Napjr - Thanks for your comments, but i have the energon tail and i dont like it, to bulky. In fact if you look at the G1 Scorpinok his tail is very small in comparison to the rest of him. I dont want it to be over bearing to the rest of him.

    Solrac333 - The arm mod was quite simple, just sand it down until it fits in the joint, the hard part was sanding down just enough so the arm still turned when it was in the new elbow joint.

    Well, i gotta agree with you, the Energon tail is very bulky for the proportions of your figure... However, i never liked either the G1 tail for the same reasons :p 

    So, what about using other pieces to make a better tail? maybe just bulk it a bit more? either way, you need to work on the mount, like i said, it shouldnt be on the mid back like that :)
