    I swear, RotF should've just been the Constructicons working to revive Megatron the whole time, with Soundwave and Starscream battling for control of the Decepticons.

    Ideally Scrapper's toy should have a launching hand attached to chain/string so he can use it like a flail, though I can't help but think MechTech would just awkwardly shoehorn a bizarre gun, like a redeco of Barricade's, on him. How would Scrapper hold a weapon?
    Not that MechTech would stop me from buying him. ;)

    Scrapper, next to Overload is one of the baddest decepticon/constructicon designs I've seen in the franchise.
    I was sad when I realised the love for this character was lacking in the films & the toys.
    I wonder why Hasbro didn't want so much exposure to this particular characer, I just can't even fathom the reasoning.

    The upper torso/shoulders are not the final design from the movie, it came from a concept called "nurse". Scrappers right arm is nothing relevant to his 9925 CAT wheel-Loader at all. He needs an arm, and I'm planning of changing it one day when I get to draw him.
    Also, his face remains a mystery to me as I have yet to see a ILM render of him uplose.

    the two tires on his hips should be complete, or at least place the other halves on his back or his arms..

    Mechtech is no problem, he's a transformer, he should easily use any area of his body to bring out a load of arsenal.
    Now, on his alt-mode, that would be interesting.
    Here's to Scrapper fans, like myseLf:

    If anyone can share new pics of him, or video clips from the game, transforming, I would greatly appreciate it. :thumb

    I wonder if it'd be fruitful to contact Ken Christiansen to see if he's still communicating with any ex-Luxoflux employees who worked on the game and might be able to share.

    That would be the best & nicest thing EVER.

    A while back ago, whe ROTF game was being promoted, an actual employee from the game shared background stills from the game in fan-art-thread, and there was a small image of scrapper running on a rooftop.

    I never heard back from him, and I don't remember his name. I've got this one that limewire gave me, but I've touched it up a bit.

    I really want a toy of him too. Sadly, it will never see the light of day.

    At this point, I'd take a Cyberverse commander figure of this guy.

    Out of all the movie Constructicons this was the one guy who would have made for the best toy design.

    I enjoyed Scrapper. He has a flail, for Primus's sake!

    But alas, I have the dream he'll have a voyager class some day. But sadly, it'll never happen.
