Still can't figure out what I'd want with a non-transforming Transformers toy.

But then, there's more than one kind of collector out there.

Im still trying to get why they couldnt have made this a transforming mold ? Hollowout the legs so they fold in, flip the arms up, rotate the cannons, tail flips out from behind, remove the head, and a scorpion head attaches in its place. How hard could it be ? I can understand no city mode, but no scorpion mode is plain stupid.

Because they are not Takara and it's not what they do.

Yeah, it's not that their incapable of making these transform into Scorpion Modes. It's the bureaucracy on of it all that legally prohibits them from doing so.

Oh if it only transformed... For around $500 you get a gigantic poseable figure that looks cool but does not transform.

Useless. 2x the price of Fortmax and won't transform......hard core if you've got the dough but aren't they "Transformers" :HEADHURTS:

Its stuff like this that spawned the existance of 3rd parties in the first place. I could easily see an up and coming company buy one just to reverse mold it and retool it to transform...

And they'll sell it like 200 bucks less and ill buy one.

There's also the possibility that maybe they just didn't want to make it transform, instead wanting to make a giant articulated action figure, one that's never been done before.

True, but those figures are going to take up alot of real estate in warehouses if they didnt read the fans correctly. BBTS changed their system so you cant tell how many of one item they have in stock. But when you could, I remember a lot of items over $500 they would only keep 10 or less in stock. I dont see the retailers taking risk with this in great numbers. Just my opinion.

Well, folks, all I can say is, if both were vastly more affordable than they are now, I'd buy both in a heartbeat. the price is the only thing keeping me from going after either of them.

i dont have the scorn for non transforming transformers that most have. and he does look awesome. amazingly awesome.

BUT.

five hundred bucks? seriously? hes the same size as fort max and generations metroplex, they transform, and cost half that. and im betting when those two 3rd party scorponoks hit the market, these things will be even more redundant.

Wow, those new photos look amazing. Here's to hoping they make a Fort Max to go with him.

If they were HALF that price, then maybe. But these things have nothing to offer me. There's little justification I'll accept for them being ginormous Action Masters. =; =; =;

They already did. Back in 1987. :P

These are meant to go with the original G1 mold due to their size matching that of that toy. ;)

*SMACK*

What I meant was a fully-poseable "anime proportions" one- G1 Fort Max is great for his time (and goes well with this) but his articulation is nothing to write home about and he's a little...tubby.

Thanks to Twitter user lovekagari158, we get a nice long look at the gigantic, officially licensed, non-transforming, highly posable and just all-round fun guy Sentinel Gigantic Action Scorponok! We've mirrored the images below, showing off the size of this mammoth toy and how it compares to predecessors and various class sizes - check them out.

As impressive a piece as this is, and it certainly is, it seems a shame that it doesn't transform. It's not like G1 Scorponok has a terribly complex transformation to begin with. All it woulda taken wad maybe 3 or 4 more joints to at least give him a scorpion mode.
Re: Sentinel Megazarak (Scorponok) and Black Zarak Official Images (1615728)

True...but then we probably would have lost the delicious anime proportions.

If only it had been TakaraTomy themselves who made this instead of Sentinel C. Ltd.

Guess we just gotta wait for a MP Scorponok.

i dont harbor the hate for non-TF'ing TF's everyone else does, but the price kills it. for what it is, it feels unjustified. shame though, its beautiful.

Nice detail! What is the brown and green figure being used for size comparison? I don't recognize it.

For that price you'd think they'd give him the ability to bend his elbows forward as well as inward. Yes, I know he has a bicep swivel but what I mean is: he needs a wrist swivel so he doesn't have begging arms.

Here I thought it was going to be like a non-transforming statue; like Fortress Maximus without the transforming. Too bad they want way too much for that monstrosity, or I'd be on board. Although, if it can articulate, it's a shame it doesn't transform at least into scorpion and Lord Zarak modes. I don't think that's asking for too much; the G1 Scorponok isn't very complex..

Yeah. This. For the amount they want, at least let the head Transform.

The budget went all into the articulation, the size and the amount of die cast metal. >:oP

I agree with all the sentiments. He looks beautiful. But he doesnt transform which I can look past, the new car payment cost of him I cant though. Cut that in half and I am in. $500 for a giant action figure though is a non starter.
