A curiosity for this Tuesday. In a long line of what could have beens and never was-isms, we have an alternate deco revealed for a figure from way back when - courtesy of Roll Out Roll Call, The Spacebridge and Transformers At The Moon - in the form of Scorponok! Rather than the regular 1987 Headmaster deco, which you can see in our galleries here, the prototype sports some fairly neon hues, with blue instead of purple, green instead of orange, and orange instead of more purple. Check it out below, and let us know what you think!

Thanks to our friends and guru's at The Spacebridge and Transformers At The Moon - www.transformertoys.co.uk we are proud to showcase a previously unknown preproduction alternate deco for Scorponok. This awesome alternate deco may have at one point been a consideration for the Italian market, via distribution through GiG under license from Takara directly in 1987. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to providing you with more awesome reveals in the future.

its kinda like when you ask who's your favourite bond and usually it's the first one you watched.. but yeah i'm glad the original colour scheme won over this.

Though I can see it fit in the G2 line...

I remember my friend had one of these growing up. His uncle worked for Hasbro. Kept it right next to his cases full of G2 Technobots. The 90s were crazy.

The Italian 90s were weirderer, I feel.



We tried so hard...

If it was anyone else that posted that I would have thought they were a kid on the playground trying to 1-up their friends.

I like it, it's G2-good neon, not Actionmaster Thundercracker bad neon.

Interesting how regular Scorponok is cropped out of the same shot. Would be nice to see the whole image, it looks like he as some crazy alt mode in the first image

That looks almost like metallic copper instead of orange, I wonder how well that would hold up over the years?

Wasn't there a KO in a odd colour scheme a long time ago too ?

I agree this would be nice for a G2 / Euro Era Scorponok deco.

(I say Euro era so he can keep the G1 logos and still be a bonkers colour)
