    Cheers

    I'd say TW Shovel. BBTS couple months ago had him on discount for $50 but unfortunately I just checked and it's gone.

    Eh. I mean, I know Constructor is the standard by which other combiners are judged, but the individual bots are kind of crappy. In Shovel's case, his torso is kind of small, and his lower legs are as thick as they are tall. Until XTB, Fans Toys, MMC, or maybe DX9 take a stab at them I'd say the Jinbao OS KO or Gravity Builder would have the best Scrapper (and Long Haul & Scraper).

    @mikeszekely To be fair the OP didn't specify if he was looking for toon accurate or a Stylized looking Scrapper. Both version are good and I totally brain farted and forgot about the OS Jinbao Gravity Builder.

    True, but in the interest of fairness ToyWorld's isn't exactly toon accurate, either, and compared to their Mixmaster, Hook, or especially their Bonecrusher GT/Jinbao Scrapper isn't super stylized.

    Put another way, speaking as someone who owns both GT and TW, I strongly prefer GT's Scrapper and have thought about picking up the Jinbao set for the very same reason as @icanfly is considering.

    (Hasbro, GT, ToyWorld)

    The different head options really matter to me so I suggest the GT Constructicons as the KOs don't include them afaik. Some of them look so much more awesome with the head that isn't included in the KOs imo, and the quality is nowhere near "bad" so even if the KOs fix certain things, GTs is still perfectly serviceable.

    If you really want a Masterpiece Scrapper and don't mind getting your hands only a little dirty then it's certainly possible to get one more like g1 cartoon....

    Old pic. Never had them decombined since.

    Although even out of the box he fits very well imo:

    I’ve currently got a ko of one of the third party ones. Has a clear chest. He’s pretty ridiculous think and maybe a touch short, so looking to upgrade

    None of these look even remotely like a masterpiece. CW/UW mold looks more cartoon accurate than all of them.

    Toy World. It's the only one that is reasonably Masterpiece.

    Either toy world or buy the Jinbao set B with scrapper (and mixmaster cause they are sold by 2's).
