Customised G1 Scorponok. -- Here I've used two G1 Scorponoks. They've been completely disassembled and rebuilt using selected components from both, essentially combining them together. The main bodies as you can see are fixed together, this gives a decent waist / upper-torso swivel. The arms have 3 points of articulation using all of the original mechanisms plus a few additional ones. 1 at the shoulder, 1 at the elbow and 1 at the claw. The legs articulate at the knees by use of an adjustable ball socket, which can be tightened and "locked" into the desired pose. The ball socket also doubles as a leg rotation and is very strong considering the weight. The thighs use the original G1 Toy mechanism and hasn't been adapted; range is still good both out to the side and forward. There is some ankle tilt, albeit quite limited, but does work quite well to disguise wider "A" stances. The figure has an adjustable heel spur for additional support also. The tail / stringer section has an added feature in the form of a larger "sting" which can be removed and used in base mode as a larger shield to accompany the original silver shields / radar dishes. Again, a fair amount of articulation in this area where the stinger can tilt up and down as well as split in half to allow full rotation of the tip. The entire figure has been dry brushed and battle damaged with an added sand effect to the underside and insect legs as though Scorponok has been scuttling through the dust and debris. The missiles / cannons have been mounted on articulated posts so they have a full range of motion around and up and down. 4 of the insect legs have been removed (2 on each side to allow better manoeuvrability in the arms. The ramps in base mode are hindered by the heel spurs so I view them as shuttle / plane landing strips. The main ramp / stinger armature still acts as a car ramp however. Full transformable into all 3 modes. Overall I'm really pleased with the outcome. Looks great. Stands with a good deal of stability. Basically just adds an extra level of "wow" to the display. It's one of a kind. Plus I had a load of fun making it. Thanks for looking.
