    Well I got the Kit-bashing Bug again!

    With Thanks to DAK, He got my butt back in the kit-bashing grove!


    Anyways I wanted some feedback on the current bash. Originally I was making a Concept Cybertron Dinobot SNARL.

    But the more I look at it the more it Looks like a Possible Scorponok Pre Earth Mode. (Something I have on the back Burner, never started)

    Anyways take a look at it started last night and did some things this morning.

    Also can I get some recommendations on a Scorponok Head? WHO should I use? I want to use a non beast wars line mold. Who kinda looks like Scorps?

    On another note should I just keep it as SNARL?
    WHAT SHOULD I DO!!??? AAhhhhhhhhhh!

    UPDATE March 27,08 Pursuit Mode and Attack Mode

    Added a Tail of sorts!

    Using tape for now until I find a joint for the Cannon.

    Glad to see you back at it! lol.

    I love the vehicle mode. IMO i think it looks better without the Scoop. In RM I really get that Scorp feel, and it's neat to see the claws there, but he has normal hands as well. I think if it is possible for RM to have the blade wheels fold down onto his back like thrusters, it would definitely work as Scorp. As for the Head, I need to think about that more.

    Well it might be cool as a War Within Snarl, but as Scorponok well thats cool as well. Dude I have a hard time to decide, but my best judgment is go with what you think looks good to you. To me either Snarl or Scorp, its going to be badass, no matter what.

    I like the idea of the thrusters.

    Lookin' pretty sharp so far. I don't really see any Snarl in him, but obviously you can easily get the Scorponok vibe from the big claws.

    If you are going with the Scorp angle, might I suggest trying to incorporate the claw parts more fully into the forearms - as it is they look very much like attachments, which may or may not be what you're going for. I'm not sure about how the hinge attachments there work, but even if you can fold the claw parts back along the flat of the arm and cover the join with the Tankor engine cover flaps, I think that'll evoke Scorp a lot better.

    There's always an extra option to consider. If you can't quite make it work in your head as the character you're going for, just make the fig how you want, and create your own character for it! That's often a fun way to go.

    Yep I totally with you, Ramrider. Anti Spark I think making your own character would be more kick ass then what your looking for as well.

    I kinda like the scoop, i say flip it over, give it kind of a Landmine look. As for heads, what about the Tankor head?

    It's coming along nicely IMO :)  I can see your vision man.* Any other minor/major tweaks before painting other than stated above? An of course your color scheme/pallet? You got some skills so lets see another pic or so in a week.

    **side note - I can see the Superlink colors or G1(combo of the two?) really bringing this character to his lives name.

    UPDATE March 27,08

    Added a Tail of sorts!

    Using tape for now until I find a joint for the Cannon.

    I shaved down Tankorrs pelvis joint and attached his legs to create a tail to allow lots of motion. Had to make another hole since the hole already there was to big.

    Talk about recycling! I'm also planing to use Tankorrs spark chamber and add it to Scorps chest.

    It looks cool, I like that. My only question is, what exactly do you figure for his cybertronian alt-mode to be, exactly? I ask because Cybertronian alt-modes seem to all have a purpose that is more practical, and not really disguise. I look at this and I don't know what it is that he's designed to do.

    I thought about this yesterday.

    I envisioned him being on the constructive side. Being a predacon doesn't mean standing around waiting for orders. Building bases,ships,secret weapons.


    After battles I can see him cleaning up Maximals shredding there bodies for some special predacon Projects!


    Keep in mind I desinged it as a concept.

    if the arms could move out to the side a bit more it would really look like a scorpion in an attack mode. I think it's pretty cool, then when in RM the claws go flush on the back of his arms and he has real hands and attack claws... which could potentially have weaponry in them

    dude i know youve decided to go the Scoprs route and this is the first time ive seen this project of yours but i really dug the design when it had the dozer scoop on the front. i could have seen that thing as any war within character. it just had a very crazy all terrain vehicle feel much like Optimus and Ironhide had in that series in my opinion. but with the claws and tail now you could paint him up in show colors and basically call him Classics Scorponok. great work so far though, glad to see after all this time you have an update on him

    He's been on the back burner for while now I'll do my best to get the paint going. A few things have changed since than.

    Thanks for the compliments!
