    Depending on their price I'd probably pick these up with an equvilance autobot group.

    Tiny Action Masters? I suppose they've got their niche, but they're not my jam.

    Today I added Destruction Scorpion to my collection. Today is a good day.

    He's naaaaasty, in the best possible way. My hands hurt, it was a fight to play with and pose this fella. It was worth it. Man, what a figure.... so damn mean looking (with add on kit head). He dwarfs the other city bots. Can't wait for Fort Max. C'mon MM, we know he's coming.... hurry up :D

    Might take a while, given the amount of metal slug stuff they just announced....

    I hear that. Something about his overall look that gives off this merciless vibe. There is a lot of aggression in his character that comes through even in a static pose, but dual wielding the add-on guns? He just looks so ready. Those fingers and huge feet probably help.

    Are the weapons that come with the upgrade 5mm compatible?

    Anybody else get a Destruct Scorpion that is a floppy mess? Mine barely stands upright. Are there supposed to be ratchets in his thighs?

    The joints on mine are super tight. Where exactly are you experiencing said floppiness?

    The hip joints, mine tends to flop backwards so I have to be careful how I positon him. Also the mini scorpions/fingers are loose enough for me to move them when I push on them with one finger. My Apollo and Rex have much tighter tolerances. Also Zarak's joints are all pretty loose.

    I agree that Zaraks joints are pretty loose, even with future, he's wobbly.

    As for D Scorpion himself, the joints have all been quite good, with the exception of two Scorpion leg ball joints that were a tad loose. I did have to grease one of his ankle ball joints though, as it was scary screechy tight.

    Sorry to hear you're having problems though, have you seen if they're worth disassembling?

    Not yet, and I need to buy some more future or some more of the UV cure plastic weld. Just slightly annoying that being he's so back heavy, his legs aren't tight enough for him to stand up without positioning him just so.

    So an update on my SDT-04, I put a little Lazer Bond on the mushroom pegs that are his hips and after curing it, his hips are much tighter and he can stand tall without flopping over. He is even capable of standing on one foot now.

    I can get some pictures up for you, but I can't do it until later today.

    So I took one with the SD head and the rest with the normal sized head. Also the first couple have the standard chest, while the rest have the chest that comes with the upgrade kit along with the normal sized head.

    Oh and I don't have the upgrade set for Warden, but you will see I started with all the pieces attached then started taking them off to have the base robot mode.

    Here's some fun ones, with me just goofing around. :)

    You're the man! I super appreciate it! So, with the non SD head and chest on Scorponok and the height upgrade and all the gear on Warden... they're actually a decent pairing?

    Not a problem at all. :thumb 

    I would say that the sizing is pretty good. It probably could be better if I had the upgrade set for Warden, but honestly that never got my attention enough to want it. Either way as is, I think the size works very well. :)

    I grabbed the statues on sale from lunar. The scorpion version is so awesome it pretty much sold me on wanting to get the full figure.
