    it almost looks G2-styled or something. Pretty cool, though.

    Interesting. But I was hoping for a 'Giant Decepticon Warrior' scheme from the micromaster ads.

    I'd buy a current Scorponok in that colorscheme yesterday.

    There was a KO with similar colors. The dreaded Rainbow Scorponok.

    I wonder if this had any influence on the RID Scorponok color scheme.

    I love new discoveries of mysterious & rare old toys like this! This unexpected find does seem to fit in with the last of the G1 Euro-Transformers' color palette. Somehow, it reminds me of ThunderClash, it must be the teal. If Takara ever re-issues G1 Scorponok, this lime, teal & faded peachy-orange color scheme would make an awesome Exclusive along with Black Zarak!

    Black Zaraks brother Bright Zarak. Much more laid back and mellow.

    Colors look like something which could fit in with Inhumanoids tech.
