    I've seen the Iron Lord Scorpion and Pandinus but I was wondering if any 3p companies are planning a figure with a 9-9.5 inch robot height.

    Most of my exposure to Scorponok came from the US Marvel comics and there, he was roughly PM Optimus height and had a slim,tall build unlike the chunky G1 figure. In a perfect world, I would love a MP level figure of that.

    Thanks for any help.

    Sadly not, you are not the only one who would like one.
    Toyworld did a great leader class Fort Max called Infinitor, but sadly they switched to Dinobots and MP before they made a complementing Scorponok.

    I doubt Toyworld will make another Headmaster anytime soon. PE might bring their Deathstalker figure, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I got my hands on a Botcon '14 Scorponok last year and it has satisfied my Scorponok cravings. Although hopefully 2018/19 will see them unlease Titan Class Scorponok.

    Although I'd be happy with an MP Scorpy. That would do my CHUG collection just fine :) .

    yeah i was sad they did not make one.

    Personally i dont want a leader sized scorponok, however I really want a leader sized Black Zarak ! So I was really hoping they would have made that scorponok .

    Yeah, I was surprised they did not follow through with a Scorponok. Infinitor was my favorite figure of last year. By freaking miles.

    Yeah, I'd have bought Deathstalker in both Black Zarak and G1 Scorponok decos. Really a shame it's never gone anywhere

    I do wonder with MT having done the city bot scale whether FT would consider doing marvel comic scorp and forth max. That would be sweet.

    I'm happy with both a Titan class (Gigantic Sentinel Megazarak) and Ultra class (Botcon + Headrobots upgrades) Scorponoks in my collection

    I'm on board with that as well... and as far as I'm concerned it doesn't even have to have a battle station mode or the headmaster gimmick if it makes the figure better overall.

    Still nothing. Someone had a 3d printed one they were shopping around but no companies were interested.

    You can kind of cheat (like I did) by getting Mastermade's Scorponok and the addon set that replaces the SD head with a regular one, but he's still shorter than your average Leader (Though makes up for it in bulk)

    If you've got sccess to a 3D printer, you can purchase the files and make it yourself, though.

    Even Bobby Skullface liked it.

    I used the IDW one I've forgotten the name of, Perfect Effect's one?

    Not my pictures but there are good shots of how they look against each other in the thread for Mastermade's

    I REALLY hope that PE Deathstalker still happens, somehow, someway (and a Black Zarak redeco gets thrown in). I loved their Fort Max and Brave Max.

    yeah, I want a Black Zarak leader size guy to go with my toyworld Grant. Sucks no one has done one. Even upszing that legends sized one would have been great. Really really surprised no one has done it. Most 3p stuff nowadays dont interest me anymore, its all MP size or legends size, which I dont collect.

    I was designing a Skorpy to 3D print, but then I saw Hasbro was gonna have one. For the money I might as well go with theirs.

    Hopefully it fits in my case...

    Still a glaring and painfull gap in my collection.

    Would be happy if some company oversized the Iron Fctory one (and continue with some other IF figures that I would love to have bigger: Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, the upcoming SOundwave, Megatron….)

    And as a Marvel fan, the Titan is way too big for me.
