    MOTUC: Scorpiac

    My second original character.

    Webstor wasn't the only Arachna warrior to go into hibernation, to be later awoken in modern times. Scorpiac had been slumbering in the Zalesian desert for many years.
    Webstor could not believe his fortune when finding Scorpiac's resting place. Webstor was quick to take the comatose body of the legendary Scorpion Warrior to Skeletor, telling him of the warrior's deadly fighting abilities. Skeletor revived the Arachna using the dark-arts, pleased to have a new allie against the Masters.
    The only question is does the Plated Menace's loyalties lay with Skeletor, Webstor or to another...

    Recipe:
    Modified Webstor head
    BA Skeletor body
    King Hiss arms and legs
    Whiplash boots and modified tail
    Clawful armour
    Buzz-Off claws, modfied back armour and 2 pairs of 200X legs
    Zodac forearms

    I nearly made him green and black but the red looked more poisonous. His tail works, as seen in the pics. I like to think if he were a vintage toy, he would have had a spring-loaded tail for stinging.

    YES!!

    I love it. I don't know about anyone else, but this really captures the vintage MOTU feeling for me.

    In the pics where the tail is up, I can practically see it springing up with the press of a button! I really like how you took the action feature into consideration to make him seem like a character that's been around for years. The solid bio does a lot to bring him to life as well.

    The colors are great. Red and black should immediately say Horde, but they don't here. The green shorts help pull him away from that. The green seemed odd at first, but there's something very vintage about that contrast.

    Also, that's a really cool looking head! I love the exoskeleton "helmet" and that's a brilliant use of a variety of parts to make him fully armored. Working in those forearms and the Clawful shell with the Hiss parts was really clever.

    Fantastic painting and sculpting, of course. This is one of my absolute favorite original character customs I've ever seen.

    Love it! An obscure character, but he fits so well! And those eyes! The way they shine in some of the photos makes him look positively EVIL!

    Wow, what an amazing figure! I love the concept, too. I completely agree with FakeEyes, this has such a vintage feel to it. Glad you went with the red, but I like that you kept that venomous green for the loincloth. Crisp paint job, very professional. Kudos to you.

    Looks good, but I couldn't help but think *What is a piece of lettuce doing there as a loincloth!* Just looks kinda odd *color wise* compared to everything else going on there. Again..just my opinion.

    Thatīs one awesome piece of work!!!!!

    All the reused pieces the tail and the head, you really should have entered the CONTEST but than i looked and saw Australia.

    I really hate those rules...

    But at least you made him and you did a great job.

    And what really makes him much more MOTU than anything is the green on the loincloth. Itīs not really matching anything else but thatīs the fun part.

    All in all, a perfect MOTU villain!

    Thank you for sharing.

    Love this concept and the tail is awesome!!
    I just dont like the green Im afraid. Its too bright. I think it should be toned down and bit more muted to compliment the red and black.
    This character is just begging for some awesome fan art!

    very very awesome. i too have concerns about the green loin. it seems out of place color wise and creates to much contrast imho. having said that, i'm not sure what color to use, haha. maybe i dark purple? idk, but still tremendous work!

    Awesome! I love it! As others have said; you've done a great job giving this one the feel of a vintage character. I think the green loincloth really makes it stand out to that effect, because sometimes the original toys threw out this one color that went against everything else. Well done!
