Giant Scorpion Transformers Toy Mystery Revealed

Posted on 06-06-2010 at 12:11 PM by SilverOptimus under Energon
Scorponok-Energon
Two months ago S250 of the 2005 Boards found out that a Giant Scorpion Transformers Figure is due to be released.

Two hours ago S250 Tweeted to let us know that the toy is actually a repaint of Scorponok (Energon).

No words yet about what toy category it will represent. Will it be for the new Generations toy category? Is this the Airachnid trademark Hasbro filed around the same time they trademarked Transformers: Prime? Only time can tell. But in the meantime, do tell us what you think by hitting the Discuss Button.

I don't have this mold yet so I'd probably get him if he looks decent.
MrSoundmeister
/\ Agreed.

so yeah,if its going to be the energon scopy mold or the cybertron retool,i guess i depends if its going to be repainted as,maybe a proper black-and-golden zarak.

I'll get it if it looks good. I never got the Energon mold. Hopefully Hasbro will do another repaint and give me Energon Omega Supreme in G1 colors.

Ohhh, yea. Me wanty!

Interesting. Depending on how it looks, and where it's available, I might get it. My Decepticons could use another large figure. I'm guessing it'll be a TRU exclusive, though it could potentially be from Walmart or Target.
BScorpinok75
Sweet! I've wondered for so long why they hadn't re-issued Scorpy. Now I wonder who'll be doing an upgrade complete with Headmaster.
Pravus Prime
Energon or Cybertron Skorponok? I never got around to getting the Cybertron version of the mold.
grimlock1972
I would not mind a G1 repaint of that mold. Black Zarak would be sweet as well.
Triggerhappy
I have energon scorponok but if it's g1 colours I'd easily buy that too!
Deceptigtar
love the mold. only thing i could see them doing is a g1 repaint, black zarak style or making him like a dawns of future past, which would be awesome!!!
Abrogate
Am I missing something? Everyone's responding as if they've already heard of this before, but this is news to me. I mean, Generations being a deluxe-only line, (and TF2010 not having an Ultra Class), where would a Scorponok recolor go?

(possible Botcon souvenir?)
Renidragon
I passed on this mold countless times, and I'm kinda wishing I hadn't. I'll probably pick this up.
General Tekno
Given S250's comment about it being limited, I'm guessing it's a Botcon toy.

When they mentioned the set is post-rebirth, that piqued my interest as it's likely Galvatron/Scorponok will be leading the Decepticons.

Could be, being that Generations is only Deluxe.

Which kind of sucks, since I would really want a new Scorponok. (That I can afford!)
mugen_prime
If it's got a G1-ish paint scheme, then I'm all over it!! Unless it's ridiculously priced, which is likely if it's limited.
Jarodimus
Where does S250 say this would be Generations? The tweet doesn't mention a specific toy line. I'd imagine he's referring to this: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transf...ers-prime.html (And to be clear, he never specifically said it would be for Prime before, either.)

Though Generations store exclusives in non-Deluxe sizes wouldn't surprise me a bit, nor would a revelation that the line in general won't always be Deluxes.

I will be very surprised if this is a BotCon toy.

Let's hope for a black zarak repaint.
MagnusPrimal
If this is available at retail and is in a Black Zarak color scheme, I might pick this up. Otherwise it's a pass, since the Energon version is good enough for me.
Jarodimus
Cybertron Dark Scorponok isn't close enough to Black Zarak's deco?
ORIO
Cue Phil Collins...

"I've been waiting for this moment.... for all my life... Oh lord!"



Pics please!!!!
Thundershot
I'd LOVE a G1 deco of Energon or Cybertron Scorponok!

My CHUG Decepticons only need a few more leaders... (Megatron, Galvatron, Deathsauras, Bludgeon, Ratbat and soon Clench and Straxus.) Shockwave, Thunderwing, Overlord, and Scorponok are greatly missed...
Jarodimus
^ You make Overlord sad.
Laser_Optimus
Well, this could be interesting. Wouldn't surprise me if this were a store exclusive of some sort. I mean, sure Generations is only deluxe, but that doesn't mean that they won't due larger repaints as part of an exclusive somewhere. I'd be very surprised if this was a Botcon figure, but it would be the right size for the larger priced exclusive with a deluxe/scout figure added.

D'OH! I knew I forgot to list someone! I'll edit that... Straxus and Thunderwing too!
Angelwave
I am currently using the SL Version of Scorponok on my CHUG shelf. But if they do happen to do one with a G1 color scheme, I'll be all for it.

I also cast my vote for a E-Omega Supreme done in G1 colors too.
Dragonclaw
I'm betting it's the next round of Walmart or TRU Ultra's as exclusives...don't know who else would be in the wave since they seem to do these in 2's or 3's...
Mr. Sparklebot
Interesting info. Didn't we also hear about a Shockblast re-release or repaint as Shockwave around the same time?

If that was the case, I'd rather have a WFC Shockwave
VBBN
YESYESYEYS

I LOVE this old(For some reason i only have Energon Scorponok, not Dark Scoropnok...)

I don't have one of those.
prime13
New energon mold repaints? WOOT!
Thenames9
Not into Energon at all, but I think if its a G1 repaint with slight retools then it'll probably be part of Generations, if its G1.
Mechafire
I personally am not fond of that mold, but this is still interesting nonetheless.
Sage o' G-fruit
I need a new one considering my Energon one's shoulder joint is really friggin' brittle and I don't want to break it.
Autovolt 127
I had energon scorponok but mine's missing pieces. I hope this is a re-release or a G1 deco of the figure.
Lumpy
if this looks like g1, i'm all over it...
billcosby
It's a great mold.
Just hope they don't get too crazy with the palette repainting it. Some of these G2 reissues look like a rainbow barfed all over 'em.
Scourge_151
If it looks tidy I may buy, don't have the energon toy.
Blitz.
I'd say generations scorpinok
Fort Max
What a let down, it wasn't a great toy to begin with.
saberconvoy
this may be the last chance to get a hold of this mold for a while
tobuttica
Poop, I already have Dark Scorponok. I was hoping this was going to be something different.
callump1996
if the airachnid toy is just a repaint of energon scorponok then whats that giant spider on the new war for cybertron game.

Energon Scorponok's original paint scheme wasn't all that great. That is one reason I never bought him when he was available. Ugly, ugly, ugly.
blackout501st
i never got this mold, so color me interested!
Pimpimus Prime
Unless he's in G1 Scorponok colors, I'm not interested. I already have three versions of this mold.
TGping
I'm hoping for a G1 Action Master Double Punch deco, THAT would rock my socks!
shockwave2005
I don't care if they call it Sally - G1 Scorponok deco or GTFO
Kaymac
I have the mold already and it's pretty good. Depending on how they go about making it, I might pick it up.
Autobot Burnout
Awesome. I've heard good things about that mold, and I lack it, so I hope the repaint looks good enough to get. It would be even better if there were no electronics in it (because I dislike electronics myself)

I think it's some kinda Decepticon generic boss you have to face. I don't think it even transforms at all.
