European Black Zarak at Botcon!?!?!

I found this amazing picture yesterday over on Roboplastic Apocalypse and it has gotten deep into my head! I can't stop thinking about it! There is a very good chance this is a custom of some sort, but the box just looks so well done that it is hard to believe. However Heroic Decepticon commented that the styrofoam is obviously from Scorponok and the figure looks to be painted instead of molded in the famous "GPS" gold color.

If anyone happens to see this guy at Botcon I would love some better high-res pictures so I can get a good look at that box. And it's too bad it is a custom because that would really compliment Overlord very well.

UPDATE!!! See below!

Yesterday I was contacted by the creator of this awesome custom who is none other than Keith over at A3Customs! He was kind enough to share some more high res pics of his awesome creation. Thanks to everyone who helped find out more about this, I think it is fantastic! 


  1. Hello my friend, is a custom. I see it a lot of times on Ebay, the seller explain how he did all the work with the box and the painting job. He did an awesome work with it...

    I can´t found it on Ebay now, so maybe he finally sell it, but ask a very high price...

    Regards from Spain!!!

    1. Thank you for your help, it is definitely a beautiful piece!

  2. Hey, Predaking SP! Nice to see you here =)
    Thanks for clarifying that it is a custom. I think it does look like. The box also looks extra glossy from all the camera reflections I see.
    Personally, I would not pay more than $500 for it - ie: I'd pay a bit more than a regular Scorponok. Haha

    1. Yes, customs are always weird territory for me, but this one looks great nonetheless!
