Skull Scorpio is an underrated set in my opinion. Sure it has its flaws but I really liked it. So I've come up with a few alternate designs that you can use to improve your Skull Scorpio set.

 

Gallery when public: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=560545

 

Here is an Lxf file of all the different builds. I will update with 2015 bionicle parts if/when LDD Updates. For now I just use replacements in the LDD version.

First are two different leg designs. One is more like the original and one is similar to LOSS. Both sets of legs have posability. These pictures also show off the new torso I made for Skull Scorpio.

Next are 3 different claw designs. One of them being the original just without the transparent orange. The third one was slightly inspired by TheDesuComplex

Next is two different shoulder designs. One with the arms out and one that brings the arms in close like the original set

Last up is the tail. I had a few alternate designs in mind until I came up with these four. 

 

The first one is the original just modified to be a bit smaller.

The second one was inspired by LoganMcOwen's one

The third one is just a standard scorpion tail using the skull villain sword

The last one is my favorite. Its a slightly modified version of the one TheScorpionStrike did. Here is his video of how the tail function works

And the picture of my version

The final pic is how I have my Skull Scorpion displayed just without Pohutu's drained mask . I added that in for effect

While I like the original Skull Scorpio set, I think that you have improved it while staying to the original design.  The tail function on the last one is my favorite, because it keeps the snapping-forward function of the original, while making it look more like a scorpion tail.  I don't understand why the non-moving legs are the cause of so much dislike of the set, when they're very easily fixed.
