    Well, a huge thanks to WanDeReal for the help with articulating these bricks and a thanks to Malfunction for his inspiration and use of MP Prime's upper legs (great fit!) for Predaking's combined mode.

    I wanted to go a very G1 route with Predaking, I used (constantly) an online image for his color palette :

    Predaking stands approx. 16" tall. He has articulation on his head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, waist, hips, knees, and ankles. ​

    The Prime thighs worked really well for this, and the Bruticus-style cannons coming out of Divebomb looks pretty damn cool and works well with the wings! The hands could be a little bigger though, but overall a killer job!

    completely agree on the hands. Amazing how different he looks once he's "on the screen"...I learned a lot about Predaking this run...got another coming soon, more of an action master style, but will be impressive proportions..

    cosign, lol

    It's hard to say "you've outdone yourself" because ALL your customs are pure win, but THIS is my favorite (until the next one is finished, lol)

    Yeah, that looks REALLY damn nice. I agree with Kingbotz about the hands though; this is one case where Unicron hands could work perfectly.

    I love the upgraded shoulder mounted guns and sword (MMPR right?) plus the paintjob is really nice too. But the Razorclaw section, cause the legs are folded up there makes him look sorta awkward...

    Still not as awesome as Mech0y's... ;) 

    However, this is still an awesome Predaking! Your paint work really brought out all teh details in the old mold, and the articulation that thing's got is impressive. Now, send it to me. :D

    what a great custom.
    but i feel that the MP thighs are a teeny bit too long when compared to the whole figure. certain angles makes him look too long on the legs and his hands a bit short.
    this is an awesome take on predaking and your highlights/tonings always make those eyes/pseudo leds look glowing. i loved it.
