    Moe's recent WIP thread got me excited and back onto this project. It's a commissioned custom.

    The majority of the added articulation was done by Wan De Real who's site can be seen here: De Real Transworks
    He did an excellent job. The "client" wanted them to be as G1 as possible, keeping away from any aesthetic changes, but adding articulation.
    I redid the upper legs on Headstrong, and the arms on Razorclaw and Rampage....unfortunately they clip into pegs and will part form to the backs of the 2 lions
    Next up, is combining these guys with all the necessary extra parts to give Predaking proper proportions.

    Predacon details:

    RAMPAGE

    - hips are on ball joints

    - lower arms/hands added (c/o frenzyrumble)

    Looking good...and a lot easier mods than what I went through, but equally effective. If only you posted these a few days ago...would have given me something to follow ;) . How did Wan De Real solve the problem of articulating Headstrong and Tantrum's legs? Also, can I borrow some paint?

    He used slide up waists with ball jointed hips. I actually took the liberty of swapping out Tantrums upper legs (with Universe/Classic Mirage)

    Is the combination going to be true to the G1 Predaking, or utilize Unicron/Primus pieces? With the G1 version, most of the extra parts could be carried by the individual bots and the combination was solely within the individual bots themselves, which is what made Predaking my favorite combiner of all time. I think adding any of the afore-mentioned Ultra's parts would take away from the final product and make it into another parts-former.

    Wow, the extra articulation added to Tantrum and Headstrong make them look a-mazing. This is my favorite combiner group, I can't wait to see the final product.

    I can't wait to see what you do the for the wings. I know the commissioner doesn't want too much interpretation but it would be really cool to see the G1 wings expanded upon. Also can't wait to see the paint on this.
