    Hi
    Heres an idea I got for Razorclaw, but Im not sure whether to go for it or not.
    The mane is currently paper and I was thinking of adding plastic rods for his cannons.

    If I do go for it, I will need the Leo Prime mold though.

    So what do you think?

    I say go for it and check in the "Items for sale or trade" threads I bet someone is selling either a Universe Leo Prime or Cybertron Leo Breaker/Nemesis Breaker.

    Id like to see the final mock up. Looks cool, but the paper won't work for him. Great idea, BTW.

    go for it, this is a great way to make the mould more 'razorclaw'

    I was thinking of it myself, but my to do list is already far too long and I still have 2 wip combiners to finish first.

    are you going to use styrene?

    any thoughts on the other predacons?

    The paper is just a test.

    The other Predacons and combiner... I would really love to but I sorta still new to Kit bashing, not sure what the best way to make a combiner is. I want to avoid extra combiner parts as much as possible.

    I also don't like ripping small parts from a fig, it sorta... a waste especially if the kit bash failed.

    This was also what I was aiming for BTW

    This mold works great as Razorclaw - it's the same mold that I'm using in my own custom Predaking combiner. :p

    there are plenty of people here that would help if you needed it, IMO you could do a predaking with only hands, feet and head, no primus or uni parts, i think i saw a wip thread here some time ago using mostly transmetals

    Any suggestions on how to attempt a combiner? I'm a bit worried about how stable it will be.

    I have started 2, not finished any yet though, first thing to do would be to pick what bots to use

    Im more worried about the connectors and joints though.


    Anyway, Im just throwing ideas around right now, how about BM Battle Unicorn and Longhorn? Does anyone know their sizes and whether they could be suitable? I dont have either of them.

    I'm not a big fan of this figure normally at all... but I have to say that that mane will look pretty great. It helps to balance the unattractive proportions of both modes, and the figure is big and solid enough to serve as a core body component if you decide to go for Predaking.

    Go for it! :)

    As base figures for Razorclaw? Too tiny. Battle Unicorn is cool due to his samurai styling in bot mode, but I find he's a bit awkward otherwise. Longhorn? Maybe... but for Razorclaw, this is the way to go.

    The mane--DEFINITELY go for it. I've been wanting to do the same thing, but I'm rather afraid of ruining my Razorclaw. Depending how yours turns out, I might follow suit.

    And if you think you can do a combiner, by all means. :)  Might I recommend any release of the TM Rhinox toy as part of the team? And I thought I saw someone use the Energon Swoop (of the Swoop/Grim 2-pack) for Divebomb once--though, you'd have to modify to get rid of the pterodactyl look.
