    My eternal gratitude goes to Chaoslock for buying the set for me - they hit stores a few days ago in Hungary, and in a day they were out of stock. Scalpers, I guess.

    Later about Richotchet, simple Jazz repaint - wonder though why his head cannot rotate...

    Well, here is the world's most adorable tiny merciless killing machine!

    [​IMG]

    Like (almost) all Robot Heroes, only his arms and head can rotate.
    He holds his gold sword in the right hand, while his huge X-ray cannon is mounted on his left arm.

    The body base is orange plastic, with black, maroon, yellow, grey and gold paint apps. Maybe the most detailed and well painted Robot Hero yet.

    What makes him so adorable are the Predacon's animal heads!

    Take a look - Razorclaw's lion-head is smiling with his tongue out, Tantrum is blowing the raspberry as well, plus - as all cartoon bulls - he has a nose-ring.
    Rampage's smiling like the Chesire cat, his mouth goes up to the ears, and Divebomb is smirking deviously. Headstrong though, just has a stunned look with his mouth open - maybe it was painfull for him when Predaking knelt down on the leg he forms?

    [​IMG]

    He has some problems - the painters swapped the arms by accident, so Rampage's head is black and Divebomb's is maroon. Plus the feathers on the back are not painted black. And his cannon is supposed to be grey and black.
    Still, he's still a very faithfull super-deformed representation of G1 Predaking!

    [​IMG]

    And if he would had been released by Takara, he'd have probably looked like that:

    [​IMG]

    Yep, he can hold a lot of things in his grasping left arm, from my USB drive to pulling Ejector's plug!

    And lastly, a little Marvel US hommage - wonder what was Predaking thinking when he had to decide whether to accept Shockwave's offer to kill the (then deranged) Megatron?

    Thanks! I got a spot-lamp today from my mom, used it due to poor lighting conditions to make him brighter.

    On a side note, that is an awesome Bludgeon CGI in your avatar and sig. Where is that from?

    Google. :lol 

    In all honesty, I found it through a link in an article that I found while roving Google. I don't think I'll ever find that gallery again.

    Oh, thanks! I know that guy - I asked if I could try to print out some of his models in 3D. Sadly, he said he recently had some computer issues and doesn't find all the files.
