A recap about the mechanical monstrosities these statuettes pay homage to:
“The Scorpitrons were the deadliest robots to emerge from Base Cochise. Designed for urban warfare, they were the chief weapons against the more densely populated and armed Las Vegas community. The original Scorpitron was heavily armored and propelled by tank treads. Its primary weapon was an autocannon mounted on its agile tail. Powerful enough to cause significant structural damage, the autocannon could make short work of even the most well-armored fortifications and defenders. After the destruction of Base Cochise, the remaining Scorpitrons were eventually hunted down and destroyed. However, a newer, deadlier variant appeared in Los Angeles. These upgraded models were the creation of Mattias and made the difference in Cochise’s renewed war against the Desert Rangers.”
