    This would be so expensive and so time consuming, honestly you would be better off finding larger animal toys and grafting them onto larger transforming figures. Like what Menchoy is doing with zoids and classic and animated figures.

    he's right, that would be ALOT of money for materials. The only way you could even possibly make it worth it is if you make multiples and sell the extras. but still, thats alot of mold material. keep in mind that you have to mold every single piece at least twice (one to make the mold to pour hydrospan into, then one more to capture the size after expanding).

    There was a guy from a japanese board that did a kickass articulated G1 Predaking with improvements in some other parts too (like articulated hands) and new sword. Have you seen it? I tried to find pics/threads but looks like it has been deleted.

    all i know is if someone is able to hydrospan the original Predaking, I'd pay good money for that.

    It would be around 4000 at least.


    I would love to see this done, I would but man oh man I don't have the cash to fund this sorta project especially cause I would want to expand it at least twice (120% larger would be frikken sweet).

    That's the plan alright. A good mold and caster is one of the highest paid jobs in the industry. Would love to do it professionally.

    You should pick up some castiliene wax, best sculpting medium out there for making toys.
