Very cool looking but the name "Dark Scorponok" sort of sounds like a candy bar IMO.

the name dark scorponok is chosen instead of black zarak...
it kinda reminds of a sith lord (darth scorponok)
:glance: i feel a fanfic coming up

Scorponok's evil twin?

I like it, though.

Nope, just his dead body reanimated from Unicron's radiation upon explosion...it's a mindless corpse that is starving for Energon.

Better and better, I'll still call him Black Zarak. Sweet bio though.

Except those aren't Black Zarak's colors, and I was replying to a guy above who pondered if it were Scorponok's evil twin, which it is not.

Cybertron Dark Scorponok (http://www.tformers.com/article.php?sid=4710)

G1 Masterforce Black Zarak (http://www.toyarchive.com/Transformers/Japanese/D311BlackZarak.html)

Black, Gold and Red paint job? Check

Smattering of teal, just for fun (Because we can't have giant robots feeling too masculine)? Check

Robotic Scorpion Alt mode? Check

Red Visor? Check

Classic G1 Stylings brought up to date for a new generation (AKA a Homage, not to be confused with Formage....)? Check

Gee boys and girls this looks like Cybertron Black Zarak to me.... Oh but wait, G1 is old, obsolete and should be completely forgotten..... :rolleyes:

But, going back over the repaint pictures - this is deffinatly a black repaint I'm getting, and is going with the others :D

I bet with you, the moment this thing appears on a store shelf, someone will post "BUT I TOT HE WUZ CLUB EXCLUSIVE!", despite any lack of evidence that he was ever planned to be. ;)

is anyone noticing that all the cybertron/galaxy force energon repaints are molds that didn't get a repaint in energon (scorponok, downshift, snow cat), or am i the only one (or is it just coincedence)?

I thought Snowcat was a TF Universe repaint.

Was that directed at me?

Only thing I knew to link him to the Club was the fact that he showed up in the comic. I'm HAPPY he isn't an TFCC exclusive - As I wouldn't be able to get him then.

And they're doing a snowcat repaint....?

Nope, a general comment directed at the odd guy who'd claim Alt Ravage was just a "rumor" when Hasbro had already announced him on their website. ;)

HA! I'm from Canada, anything after fricking Dead End is a rumour! While Cybertron was early - everything else has dropped off the face of the earth.....

Nice! Its about time that decent mold was redeemed from the terrible colors of the Energon version.

I really like the Black Zarak...erm Black Scorponok I wish there would be more black and less grey. I'll be picking it up for sure.

They did the same thing in Energon with the Armada molds that didn't get repainted, except Wheeljack, and thrust and blurr were tfu fodder.

Not a bad looking figure.

Off-topic: Should this be combined with the other Dark Scorponok thread?

Like it. Nice colour (probably, again, better than the original).... what is the feature activated by the force chip?
