In this last part of the review I’ll show you pictures of Scorponok and Waspinator. Scorponok easily takes the cake for the best looking MC of the whole lot if you ignore the fact that he has elongated hands. Scorponok looks really menacing in his beast Scorpion mode, and I think his assembly is quite brilliant for such a small figure. Waspinator looks great as well, although it’s a shame that you cannot see his eyes behind his helmet visor.
Back when I first started this review, I did mention that I had some problems being some parts being loose after assembly, and unfortunately it is with Scorponok and Waspinator that we will find this issue. The problem is with the “legs” that you assemble on the left arm of the MCs. Somehow the left arm is smaller than the right, so once you fix in the “legs”, they are not tight and tend to fumble around. Very weird. In Scorponok’s case this can be remedied by pushing in the cylindrical part attaching the claws to the arm so that it “locks” the legs in place, but with Waspinator you will find that the part just hangs loose. Dont get me wrong, it will not detach from the arm, but it will not hold in place, so you will find that that part freely rotates on the arm. You can see this is the picture of Waspinator above, notice how the “legs” in his left arm seems to be rotated towards the front a little?
Anyway, more pictures below.
