    which is better?

    Energon Scorponok?
    or
    Cybertron Dark Scorponok?

    i'd really like to have the dark 1, in place of black zarak, since im likely to never have it.... but is the original toy better?

    basically on my shelf with terrorcon army ... which is going to be more striking?

    It is all about personal preference. I like Dark Scorpy better. I think the colors work better for it. In the end, whatever you like and are happy with.

    The best usage of that mold, imo, was by far the Micron Legends version.

    Otherwise, Energon, i guess.

    I would get dark Scorponok if I were you. He's the only toy that uses mini cons, Energon stars and Cyberplanet keys. I would like a toy that uses all 3 of those things.

    Either way, it's a very cool mold. On top of being a triple changer, there are dozens of fan-modes you can get out of him.

    Gotta go with this one, also. However, it was released in Superlink not Micron Densetsu (legends). SD-05 Megazarak is the Japan release name. Show accurate colors and the most striking of all versions. He'd be the hardest to get at a reasonable price, though. If sticking to just the Energon Scorponok or Cybertron Dark Scorponok, I'd go with Dark Scorponok.

    Botcon Doublepunch is great, too. I suppose of all 4 uses of the mold, the Energon version is the weakest coloration.

    I personally love the Energon version. This is one of those molds that I'm surprised that we haven't seen a G1 repaint of yet

    4. Energon

    That's not meant as a knock to the Energon deco (I own all four), it's just that the other three decoes are that much more striking. The Superlink version is one of the prettiest Transformers I own.

    Is it Transformers Cybertron Dark Scorponok | eBay?

    I thought it was a good deal too. Then I saw the shipping charges and that the seller is not in the U.S. And that the auction has five days left. Chances are you won't get him for that price, especially if he's complete.
