Here he is in all his G1 RE-RE-RE-ENGINEERED glory, steam shovel and Devastator's right arm, it's Legoformer Scavenger version 3.
About this creation
You can't help but feel sorry for Scavenger. He wants so badly to be liked and needed, to feel like a useful and valuable member of his team. His self-esteem is so low he'd do just about anything to get the approval of the others, but his simpering, doting eagerness to please just reinforces the other Decepticons' opinion of him as a worthless loser.
He's constantly excavating everywhere he goes in the attempt to find something of worth to please everyone and prove his value, but it's invariably just some piece of garbage or scrap he excitedly finds, and that just reinforces their opinion of his worthlessness once again. If it wasn't for his shovel's unique ability to detect needed materials, Megatron and the others would likely have dumped the poor scrub long ago.
For their first mission on Earth, the Constructicons raided an experimental power plant for the energy disc components and power converter on-site. The humans were using the components to tap into Earth's magnetic field for an infinite power supply and all the energy they'd ever need.
Scavenger is the least-changed of the Constructicons. Still don't like his bot mode, the feet are too big. Vehicle mode is okay, but I have a few changes in mind already for it, so we may see a version 4.
All info on Scavenger was gleaned from TFwiki.net.
As always, feel free to comment / critique, build on and HAVE FUN!
P.S. Thanks to Chris Roach for teaching his building techniques and to the Almighty Jervis for an LDD version of Devastator. Your Constructicons don't transform into individual robots - to me, that was the challenge. :) Y'all are inspirational to me. THANKS!!
Quoting Stephan N
Very good work. I would like to see the unit in a larger scale.
Well, I guess I can try to model them from a Tonka Truck toy... but the whole purpose of this was to make Jervis-sized vehicles and have them transform individually, so bigger vehicles would defeat the purpose.
