Out of the six Constructicons, Scavenger ties with Hook for best alt mode. Although the tracks donít move (the horror!), the moveable arm and rotating cab make him a great functional back hoe. The attack mode isnít as successful as Bonecrusherís, though with the shovel getting in the way of the launcher somewhat. I do like that the hand gun can be attached to the vehicle mode cab though. Like Bonecrusher, Scavenger has possibly the best transformation out of the group and is aided by the shovel for a bit of extra stability (not that he needs it). The head sculpt is excellent, with the eyes and face plate picked out with a few splashes of silver paint. Retooled for the European line in 1992, Scavenger is now unable to merge with his team mates by virtue of the removal of the connector peg that used to swing out the robotís chest. Aside from that, the crisp colours of the new version make it equally worth picking up in addition to the í85 original.
