    God damn! Is that really that big or is it an optical illusion? Either way that look's awesome, but hard to see detail and articulation.
    I wonder what 3rd party would dare venture into making this giant? I also can't imagine what the price tag would be on this monster! EEEEEK!

    Could it be possible that they its just an early prototype and the company is using joints from previous figures like Unicron, but they will be altered later?

    Even if it wasn't identifiable as a custom, I'm loath to trust an announcement of a third party custom from a 1st time poster.
    The last thing we need is more third party announcements, otherwise people won't buy the ones that ARE coming out, and then it will look like the bubble has burst and the companies behind the announced ones will think it doesn't seem profitible and then we'll end up with nothing again.

    Still, nice job on the Scorpy either way.

    I'm not seeing any Unicron parts in there...

    But, clearly a lot of Scorponok parts. It looks like it's just a G1 toy with primer on it or something. Except for the waist area. Are those the Unicron parts? Knees and above the elbows have some extra bits too (looking at a G1 toy image and comparing).

    Either way, low probability this is not just a custom.
