Ark Addendum - Scorponok in Shadows
It's time for another page from The Ark Addendum. Continuing my Headmasters theme, I thought I'd take advantage of Brian's Easter holiday from reviewing to play a little catch-up.
In Headmasters, Scorponok spent most of his time sticking to the shadows when he was first introduced. (A quick note - the small headmaster figure, that which was called Lord Zarak in the US, was called Scorponok in Japan. The larger figure, called Scorponok in the US, was called MegaZarak in Japan.) Rather than just draw in shadows to the existing model, he received a whole new shadowy design, probably to make him look scarier. Let's face it, Scorponok's basic design just isn't all that creepy. I also included his transformation, such as it is.
A quick note - I never had a chance to clean these models up, so there is quite a lot of noise. I beg your indulgence.
