I think this is the right place. Convince me of which deco I should get.
I prefer Paralon. Just looks better to be honest. Scorpornok's colour scheme looks a bit off to me.
I'm only getting one or the other. If they're not part of a combiner team or multi-pack or something with new mold, repaints/remolds are a hard sell.
The only one available online is Paralon. Get Paralon.
Buy my TAV Scorponok.
Personally, I like Paralon because of the BW Scorponok head. I bought the "standard" version a week ago because I couldn't find the other...and then sure enough yesterday spotted Paralon.
So if you're a BW fan, Paralon should take priority. But if you just want to make sure you get the mold...Scorponok himself is still a solid figure.
It could slightly depend on the basis of your collection...a RID 2.0 collection I guess Scorponok would be the one to nab...if going for some Beast Wars type of collection I suppose Paralon would be the one to nab...I have CHUG-lection...and...find myself leaning towards Scorponok as a new character...deco wise I do like Paralon a bit better...
It really depends on what you're looking for. Honestly, it's probably cheaper to get Scorponok since Paralon may have a TRU markup. If you're going for an RID collection, then it seems Paralon will be playing a part in upcoming episodes alongside Starscream and Scatterspike, so he may have more screen time and prominence than Scorponok.
Either way, being the same mold and all, they're great figures. I don't think you'll have an issue with either one you go for.
my thoughts exactly
I plan on both but I've never seen Scorponok in stores. but I have a paralon
Both are fantastic figures....so get which ever one you come across first.
If I had to choose I would go scorp
if you go to the store, and you only want one.....get the one on the left.....if they're on the same peg, tell a worker to place them on separate pegs without telling you, then get the one on the left. if he failed the mission, tell the manager he hit you and show him the bruise from the late night drinking or whatever the kids do these days.....then make the manager do it.....
Paralon. Beast Wars bias aside, my Paralon has tighter joints on his knees/legs and arms compared to my floppy mess Scorponok. I read similar reports elsewhere too.
Unless you're a diehard Beast Wars fan, in which case it's got to be Paralon. But Scorps has the better colour scheme, and a headsculpt that's fresh and original. He looks like a hunchbacked pirate!
Paralon. Better color scheme and the BW Scorponok head win out for me.
I went with Paralon
I quite enjoy my Paralon. I wasn't expecting the BW head, and it's the only one I ever found; apparently my neck of the woods doesn't want to sell me Scorponok.
I greatly dislike the look of both, but:
I prefer the color scheme of Paragon, though HATE the head. Skorponok's head looks a hundred times better to me because it's not a doofy human face like Paralon's, but the colors are kinda meh.
Though my fiancee thinks that "Skorponok" is one of the worst names of anything ever created, so I would buy the figure just to spite her ;-)
