    Received these today and my opinion is "Meh"... They are certainly $25 foot plates alright.

    I can see why these were needed to help proportion out the feet if they are in fact adding thigh extensions, but this is a very underwhelming upgrade for sure.

    I'm not one of the folks who whines about the prices, because basically I like what they are doing and am willing to pay to upgrade some of these figs, but this set is overpriced for what you get no question about it.

    Id post pics but my predaking is in storage for the move until next week.

    Again, overall, Meh, A block of cheese excites me more.

    yeah...and you could buy a boat of cheese for $25.


    i just don't understand the crazy devy cult of followers....

    paying lots of $$ for over priced "additions" to break your transformers with, huh?

    Nothing about these will break the toys and I've actually had no issues with the wings either, and usually the whining about price for these is not 100% justified for those of us that like these upgrades, but as far as this upgrade goes. Overpriced is an understatement.

    Don't want to get into the whole debate again, but I consider these parts "luxury" items, Just like cars, you don't need a BMW, a Ford Fusion will get you around fine, but if you want it and can afford it, why not?

    But yes this upgrade is overpriced. I think $10-$15 for this upgrade would be justified, but $25+, or $32 from BBTS, Not worth it.

    Because every single thing from crazydevy breaks the toys they are meant to go on. :rolleyes2 

    I love my upgraded Predaking, Superion, and Devastator. None of them are broken and all look much better than original IMO.
    Awesome upgrades for mediocre toys.
    I owned none of the G1 combiners until CD hit the market with their upgrades.

    Some people like them, some don't. Does everyone like the Dallas Cowboys? Nope, Such is life.

    That might be the reason I keep my PO for now. Hopefully, somebody else gets theirs and we can see pics

    I applaud CD and any third party that can please a percentage of thee fandom with well made and desirable products. I see no issue with it. You like, you buy. I personally don't have ant CD stuff, but i do want to know does this feet upgrade do anything besides add height to Predaking? Does it add ankle articulation or anything?

    Pics should be nice, but I understand your PK is in storage at the moment.

    The designer that came up with the foot plate idea should have been laughed out of the meeting room. We want to see the thigh extensions already.

    This is why I wonder about ankle articulation. If they can pose spread legged with thigh extenders and didn't make ankles, I think that would be a trrible oversight

    ankle articulation pieces will probably be a seperate add-on, I say with absolute seriousness.

    yeah, after all the other parts are done eh?

    I think the financial aspect of this project is hindering them

    It seriously should have been a complete set, other than the wings and sword, i can see them as stand alones

    I got the foot plates but will wait til all the CD add ons for Predaking is released before I put them together. And also, please stop with the "CD things will break your TF" rant. It happened to an esteemed member of this forum and that's very unfortunate, but to say it's gonna break every TF is way too exaggerated. In the end if you got the money to burn to make your combiners look good, I'd say go for it.

    Agree friend !!! Please guys, this rant became ridiculous, seriously ! CD behaved badly with the good Optibotimus, there's nothing to say more about, but after that accident they demonstrated to want make better things. I think that all deserve a second chance :2c:

    Plus, Optibotimus seems to have been able to move on, so why can't others just let it go as well? It's pretty much just cliche now to see these random members pop in CD threads just to give their "2cents" about Optibot's broken wings and/or how it's too expensive/should sell as set. But back to the subject, it looks like a few people has theirs in already, so hopefully somebody can take some pics, finally:lol

    its only overpriced cuz they take their sweet time releaseing all the parts individually

    thats the biggest thing i DONT like about Crazy Devy

    Their upgrades all look pretty sweet. just selling them individually they hike up the price so they can make more money instead of selling it all as just one kit
