    Hi guys,

    This is my first posting ever on tfw2005! I come to this site everyday, and it's a pleasure to finally post something.

    I just got the CDMW-18 laser cannon for Predaking. I remembered paying for it like 2-3 months ago and finally got it!

    Overall, I am happy with the purchase. It comes with a small pole, which looks almost exactly like the one on divebomb's backpack. When I replaced it with the one from Crazydevy, it does have a tighter fit and keeps the cannon more stable.

    My only disappointment is that you can turn the cannon sideways. You could only move it up and down on a 90 degree angle. I bought all the Predaking's upgrade and I am starting to see why you need to extra feet. The extra height does give him a bigger presents especially now with the cannons. Check out my photos!

    Is he worth the $500? That is what holds me back. The whole thing with all upgrades is $500!

    I think spending $500 at once and spending $500 over a year is different. Trust me, I been thinking, looking and waited over a year before I bought anything from crazydevy. It's worth it if you like the toy enough that you display it everyday. If you are the type that only takes it out once in awhile then I would say no.

    BTW, I also bought the original blue color legs for devastator. I couldn't believe crazydevy still sells it! I had to specifically ask them about it. :)

    The feet are useless, just extending his legs does the trick. Besides that I have the rest of the upgrades but wouldn't waste money on the feet.

    If you love Predaking, the answer can't be than yes :rock 

    Anyway thanks for the pics StarMaximus, I was waiting for some pics like these and now I'm really praying my set will arrive as soon as my patience will be able to stand :D

    Im just waiting for them to release something for the damn legs so I can put all my upgrades on, I hate to have the feet pointing straight forward. :(  Ive gotten every upgrade for PK so far including the cannons but dont have any on him.

    Where does this $500 come from?

    I'm really tired of hearing it.

    2010 Predaking $200
    Wings $60
    Head $30
    Feet $30
    Cannons $40
    Sword $20

    That's $380...NOT $500 And only $180 of it is from CD.
    If you already have a Predaking then that cost can't be counted.

    Is this idiotic claim based on hypothetical parts?

    Maybe based on retailers scalping the prices? You can't actually blame that on CD. You want to get on this wagon, treat it like fansproject, buy them quick and be happy you did.

    Maybe we should see what CD is planning to put out and quit bitching and making up numbers kids.

    I love everything CD puts out. I hope to see more parts for everything they have touched.

    Great pics BTW! I can't wait for my cannons.

    Probably because CD uses top quality abs plastics that are almost exactly color matched to the original product. The parts are also Mold injected so there are no air bubbles and no warping.
    Anything someone "casts" is probably going to be cheap ass resin and cost almost as much as the original from CD.

    They have made thier mistakes, but hopefully they are learning from them.

    A KO company could probably do it up, but why bother? This is a very niche market that CD is playing with.
    Even FP stuff doesn't really get knocked off except for the Commander armor, and the quality of that compared to the original is a joke.

    I'll keep buying my stuff from crazydevy with a big grin on my face.

    Thanks for the pics, and great pose in there by the way!!! My cannons are in the mail! I've purchased and have been very happy with the quality and price of all the CD parts for Predaking (except I thought the feet extensions were perhaps a bit pricey, but too cool looking to pass up). I've heard rumours of a new Razorclaw face, but I think that would detract quite a bit from the G1-ness of the figure, especially since all the other Predacon heads are showing. So unless the new Razorclaw face has me shitting my pants, I may pass on that one.

    Thanks, man! Yeah, I tried to pose him as lively as possible!

    I have seen a new mane for razorclaw from a past crazydevy pics. I doubt they will redo his entire head. check this out.

    That mane, together with the hands, the legs and the arm cannon, is what presumably they have to put still on the market :)
