Time for another Earthrise gallery, this round is for the Titan Scorponok! One of the last biggies need to complete the G1 re-dos, Scorponok joins Metroplex, Fortress Maximus, Trypticon and Omega Supreme to fill out your upper shelves. He is another great G1 homage, taking the original vibe and general transformation then upgrading it for modern expectations. He’s got rich greens and purples like the original, keeps the Headmaster gimmick (this time dual), and stays pretty faithful to the original scorpion and base modes. I enjoyed running him once in hand, his base mode was a big fun display piece for the WFC Decepticons. Engineering wise he handles like a Voyager or Leader – all the articulation points are there – he’s just way bigger. That has been a welcome addition to the big guys over the last couple years, no shortcuts just because they are big.
Bottom line – great modern figure with good nostalgia for the old heads but holds it’s own now if you weren’t alive when his first toy was released :).
Check out our pics for him at the link below, we have 75+ HD shots, both basic and fancy available:
