    This is a collaboration project between myself and thielmj. We both took part in building him and I did the painting. Scorponok is extremely articulated and heavily armed. He's not a headmaster.

    Articulation/Features:

    -Head is on a balljoint
    -Shoulders have full range of motion
    -Elbows have full range of motion
    -Claws clamp
    -Chest opens
    -Waist is on a balljoint
    -Balljointed hips
    -Knees bend and rotate 360 degrees
    -4 double-barrel turrets, rotate 360 degrees at turret base and cannon base
    -2 double missile turrets
    -BFG and Shield

    Awesome stuff! I definitely like the modified supreme starscream head, even though it's not a headmaster, this guy is really superb.

    That's some good stuff!

    Only critique I have is the paint apps on the tip of the tail. Its nice, but I think dry brushed to match the gun it would really tied it in.

    But that's a minor complaint for a great custom.

    LOVE everything about it! Kinda glad you didn't go headmaster route, might not have looked so good in the end. As is this is awesome!

    Head master gimmick lost
    Base mode lost.
    It is still cool. Now you needed to paint it in Black and gold.
