    I haven't posted any of my kitbashes for a while. Actually I haven't had much time to even work on any so I thought I would share one of my works in progress Classics Scorponok. I know I'm not the first to do this bash I actually would like to give credit to Spurt Reynolds I used his Classics Scorponok as a guide.

    Scorponok is pretty much a straight up repaint with the exception of modding his upper legs to give him more poseability.

    So awesome and such an obvious repaint that I can't understand why Hasbro hasn't done it yet.

    Good work man!!!!!

    Thanks guys... Like ORIO said it's an obvious repaint that I can't understand why Hasbro hasn't done it yet either.

    If they did they could mod the legs too. Actually it looks like that was what they were going to do then they changed their mind. Such a simple change added so much more poseability.

    It's good to be back customizing :)  Originally I didn't plan on turning him into a headmaster, but now I'm thinking about reconsidering that. I'll need to dig through my kitbashing supplies to see what I can come up with.

    This mold has so much potential & you've done a kick-ass job in bringing it out. Luv it! :thumbs2: 

    Regarding a headmaster, What about Energon Omega Supreme's head? With a bit of modding, I can see it working out well. :)

    Wow. I admit, I kind of like the original Energon patchwork colour scheme, but this looks REAL nice! Great job.

    Also the legs... great! Seems like a relatively simple mod too! Woot! :D

    I've been Umm-ing and Ah-in about starting doing a Classics Scorponok. You've convinced me to try it. That really does look fantastic.
