Third party group MakeToys has been on a roll lately and they do not appear to be slowing down. Announced earlier today on their website are plans for a new Citybot transformer named Pandinus. This figure is a clear homage to the menacing Decepticon Scorponok, but the design sketches reveal a very different take on the character while still remaining true and recognizable to the Generation 1 character. MakeToys provided a brief description of this next Citybot:The Next Citybot will be Pandinus! The Pandinus is under development and we are revealing some of the conceptual sketches. The initial idea was to develop a bulky and muscular character that can transform into a giant scorpion and a ruined city. It features a pair of giant claw-like arms and a huge scorpion stinger. Further information on gimmicks and an alternate mode will be announced later.
No other information is available at this time, so keep it locked on TFW to stay up to date as this project rolls along. Images after the jump!
