    I've posted info about KO G1 Scorponok in the KO G1 Metroplex thread when the company got a Japan version as sample, but now there is actual progress pic so I think I should start a new thread for it:
    关于变形之星的狂蝎巨人(G1萨克)的消息【变形金刚玩具吧】_百度贴吧
    The company is already designing some parts; they used to say if Scorponok sells well, they will make Black Zarak.

    Their plan about this Scorponok:
    1.Keep the back diecast part and change the chest as diecast
    2.Improve the quality of chrome parts
    3.They will add words "bxzx" on every piece of plastics so people can't sell it as official version
    4.The current planned price is 100RMB
    (These plans might change in the future)

    Yeah, if they wanna make money, they should just lead with Black Zarak, and then do Scorponok second.

    If it's good quality and cheaper than the KO G1 Scorponok currently on the market (e.g. Ebay) this could be interesting.

    Ah crap. Well I just bit the bullet and bought Metroplex. Metrotitan will most likely be next, followed by this guy.
    I'm hoping they follow up with Fortress/Grand/Brave Maximus after Scorp/Black Zarak.

    200 Yuan = $38.49 CDN, and the forum is inferring that it will not exceed the 200 Yuan mark.

    Wasn't aware that the G1 Scorponok had metal for the body? But, I'm really pleased to read that they're going to improve on the quality of the chrome plated parts. Considering that it will comes with all of its accessories, this will be a must-have for any G1 fan that had missed out on buying it back in the day.

    Would love to see an oversized version to stand toe to toe with Fort Max.

    I hope the qc on Scorpy will be better than Metroplex. The joints on mine were pretty loose and felt fragile.

    By the time this comes out. I'm going to only want the upgraded version like the Missing Link line and not a regular straight G1 KO :p

    The part where the tail connects to the back of the waist is diecast. It is mostly internal. Had I not taken one apart, I don’t think I would have known.

    similarly, there is a large diecast bar inside Fort Max that bridges between both of his moobs.

    Oh, I think you'll be content with the KO of Scorponok as an eventual Missing Link of it may cost a few $$$ (considering that the average price of the Missing Link Optimus is around $260) :eek: 

    ...and to think that the MP-10 was $150? :cool:
