    I just started this on Saturday as that south Florida rain refused to let up...
    Scorponok/Zarak as an actual earth mode type vehicle...But still has a slightly scorpion like look to him IMO. The back of the robot mode right now is hollow and I have to figure how to fill him in...with weapons. He's made from a universe dropshot's arms and legs, and a tftm thundercracker's body..the head right now is just a place holder to give me an overall aesthetic. He stands at 13 inches with his legs fully extended..and about 12 with them bent for his 'goat' stance. I know many people don't like the reversed legs..but I love em'. He's really far from done..but just want to show him off. Any c&c is appreciated. Thanks

    Nice. I like how he goes from fairly compact vehicle mode to GIANT robot.

    That's very inventive. I wonder if you can keep the plane alt form somehow and make him a movie Blitzwing or something?

    You come up with some of the greatest stuff.

    I'm also getting a G1 Overlord vibe from him, at least through the bot mode pics.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. As for colour..I'm just only started to try my hand at it..so I might not get to this guy for a while, but while I'm not thinking G1 colours..it'll be something close..
    The threads..I actually like the fact they aren't flush..it makes it look a bit wider and a bit more menacing.

    Interesting use of mold :)  I for one also like to see that you line up the threads in altMode .. unless you intend it to be that way.

    Hope to see it finished :)  Good luck

    I actually like the wide treads. It's different and it does make him look more menacing in alt mode.

    I too thought the wider rear treads looked out of place a tad, but then i thought "why not" and now I really hope you DON'T change that. it's different.
    This is the single most creative blend of toys i've seen in a long time. i would have never thought that the "fractured" look of the movie style would look so damn cool with the smooth panel look of dropshot.
    it's times like these that i wish people would make a brand new character when you have something so recognizeable, yet so new. nontheless, it's a awesome bash, and i look forward to the finished scorpy. Are you going to try and bring in a headmaster gimmick?
    Randy!

    Ok, so you like it like the treads on ROTF voyager Megatron.... but then... maybe there's a way to round out the outer ends of each tread.. because atm, they just ...end there abruptly.
