I have to kind of wonder who exactly is this aimed at. The pricetag places this way above the budget of a TF collector (well, except for that guy who bought the G2 Stunticons) - Scorponok is my favourite character, but even I don't like him THAT much. As a companion piece for the Encore Fort Max it doesn't really work, since the sculpt and articulation are on a completely different level.
And of course, the lack of transformation. At this scale, the base mode would actually be of SOME use, and even the original's transformation scheme was stupidly simple. The only reason to make it a giant Action Master I can think of is licensing reasons...which is probably the reason, actually.
Well considering the size it's fairly priced. If MakeToys wasn't doing their take on Scorponok scaled with their Metroplex I would consider it. This is a definite impressive piece. And nothing is cooler then crazy scaled figures in the same line...in my opinion.
So, this figure was a thing. It existed. It was somewhat desirable, particularly after Titans Return Fortress Maximus came out to match it in articulation.
And then Earthrise Scorponok happened.
