    Hiya! You guys remember the Dash Predacons i posted a while back? Well, it seems i'm running out of patience with waiting for inspiration, so i thought i'd throw another teaser out there, seeing as i finally got Dash Razorclaw's connector working.

    Now if only inspiration would hurry up with a good Divebomb, then i could get this thing finished.

    For all the people who asked what connectors i was using, it's all the polycaps from a Mega Size RX-78-2 Gundam kit. Went high and low searching for this kit in Hong Kong, thankfully managed to pick one up for a good price. :)  It also means that for once this isn't a cheat combiner. There's no hidden leg framework, the lower legs are Headstrong and Tantrum, and Rampage does form the shoulder. :D 

    And yes, Rampage's paint work is almost finished. I'd love to say here that you'll have to wait till i'm all done to see more, but my lack of patience makes statements like that completely redundant. :( 

    Quick shout out to ABX23, i stole the sword idea from his Predaking Prime. ;)

    is that the same kit you told me I prolly could use for menasor?
    could you please give al the measurment... atleast from the head, then I can calculate the rest
    did you know a UK company has a reissue of this kit in pre-order due Jun2011? :D 
    I might be needing to wait to finish or start Menasor but then again I can work on Predaking ;)

    Yeah, that's the kit i said you should use for Menasor. It actually would work better, as the RX has a very humanoid shape, unlike Predaking's more bulkier upper torso.

    I'll get measurements after dinner. ;)

    Looking good, man. The way their limbs stick out is distracting too me, but great use of Gundam parts. Have you see the PG Blue Astray sword? It's a beast!!

    Don't worry, it's a Mega Size, not a PG. Intact, it's bigger than a PG, but far cheaper.

    There's a PG Blue Astray? Where?

    I left the limbs sticking out because I thought that it felt more Predaking-y, more animal parts showing.

    No. The Gundam kit is a Mega Size RX 78 2, while the sword is from a 1/100 NG Blue Frame Astray Second Revise (not the MG, but I guess both would give you a good sword). I opted to get the NG Clear Color Version to get the transparent sword edges.


    Thanks for all the responses, guys! I hope Divebomb comes along soon...

    Looks promising so far man. Will u be adding anything to the exposed gundam legs and arms they look a little out of place with the predacon pieces? Then again i'm not sure what the look is your going for. Can't wait to see it finished man!
