    So i always wanted an articulated Predaking, Crazy Devvie started to fulfill that dream but months have passed and like everyone knows, no news of the new legs or the improved lion mane

    Last january i was able to buy a KO Predaking (2nd version, lower quality) and after many problems, got it last week. I also had an old Gundam laying around wich provided the legs and a broken Razorclaw to test fit the pieces. Ive got a reissue Predaking, but its stored for the time being and i cant take it out to check the pieces. Also, got all the CD pieces so far except the foot extensions (and the sword, but is stored with my reissue)

    Anyway, after some cutting and mixing pieces (one of Razorclaw´s upper legs worked like a charm as a pelvis connector), i ended with this BEAST!

    Holy Crap! its over 15 inches tall!

    There´s nothing much to do other than detail the legs (ill use Razorclaw lower legs for that), maybe ill make a custom mane and just wait for the hands to be released

    Would i buy the CD tights if they ever come out? That would depend of the overall design and sturdiness

    Now the pics with some comparisons!

    Nice!! I really dig the mods you did. Looks like you used a 1/100 GP01Fb kit?

    And one more thing...the dead BB in the background intrigues me...the hood looked like the 74 Camaro...did you mod him in any way? or I could totally be wrong...

    Yeah, ill be painting the legs once the detail is done

    Oh and respect the Gundam, im not sure wich one it is, but i think it was released in the US years ago, its about leader size with a little ship that fits on the abdomen

    Yeah, its something im working on right now... ill post pics and info in the next couple of weeks once i make more progress ;)

    i dont think the kit would be sturdy enough considering the weight of p.king..its prob the 1/60 ish scale action fig that came out like 8 years ago like some one said...if it is a model kit dudes got some serious skill...

    Thanks!

    So far one problem i have is the weight distribution of the figure, but i cant blame both the tights and the CD upgrades since im using a KO as a template. The legs are extremely light for the thin plastic used. Maybe with the diecast content of the reissue, stability would improve

    Here´s a pic of the connector. Basically i took Razorclaw yellow tight (either works), and sanded one side and made some minor cutting on the top so ti clicks on the metal bar where the legs attaches on Razorclaw. After that, it was only a matter of gluing the new waist on that piece and add some styrene to hold in place

    i like the thighs a lot. they dont look like they could hold a lot of weight though. those KO predakings are very light. i actually started working on my custom predaking last weekend and he already weighs about 4 lbs! i was inspired by getting the TFC hercules and wanted to have a display piece next to him. anyway im using unicron (shocker) upper waist and thighs. it seems to be more up to the task of holding up all of that upper body weight.

    this looks great and i hope you are able to support the weight of a real predaking. plastic variant definitely.

    But they do hold the weight rather nice, even though i havent touched this project since i posted the pics, i did however, switch the figures to my reissue Predaking, and eventually added the mane, gun barrel and sword from Crazy Devy

    I also have the hands and sword handle somewhere, but i dont mind not putting them for the moment. Lemme show you a pic

    Like i said before, i used this Gundam
    DX GP-01 Gundam | CollectionDX

    However, there´s plenty of options to make upper legs, i saw a custom with Cybertron Metroplex as base and they looked rather nice...

    And respect the wings and cannons, yeah i guess they should be available at some places
