    Anti-Venom and I had an idea: Let's build a Predaking. Simple, right? Well, not quite. None of us really have the money or the time to build a tall-as-a-child custom Predaking, so we're both going for Scout size and lower builds. But two costoms is boring...

    ...So we figured, "why not get other Radicons to join us?". Well, here we are. We want as many people to join us in creating as many Scout size Predakings as possible. I should probably explain what that entails. Basically, build a Predaking, any version, any continuity, there's no limits aside from the fact it must be Predaking. So Cybertronian, Shattered Glass, anything and everything is fair game. The only catch is that all component bots are under scout size (not Predaking himself. If he was, he'd be eye-level to Huffer, which is good for a few laughs, but making a combiner at that scale would be a nightmare). I know SQ7 hates rules like this, but i doubt anyone has the time or the money to build anything bigger, so this is more of a 'common sense' thing than an actual rule.

    That is all there is to it. There are no other limits. Join us at your leisure, if you do, post in this thread, so we know. The idea is that while this is NOT a contest, if you all can flood the first page of Radicons Customs with Predaking builds, i will be a happy Radicon. ;)  :lol 

    There's no set deadline yet, there might be there might not be. That's for Venom to decide.

    I'm interested, but I'd rather work with a deluxe size to be honest.

    I'm in, been wanting to build a Predaking for a while, and Scout one sounds like a ton of fun too.

    I'm hoping the due date isn't until the spring. I've got other stuff that I'm working on, not to mention planning out my entry for the S70 Gobot contest.

    Make it even more interesting....scout size of all the g1 gestalts :) 

    I'd try predaking but I wouldn't know where to start but a devy or stunticons would be cool to try.

    Oh come one now Fishdirt, don't think like that, you never know unless you try, ya know? You say you don't know where to start, just start by looking at reference pictures, that's a great start right there. Everything will come to ya after that.

    Satomi, I'd love to help you, but technically there are no "rules", so I can't allow/disallow you from using a deluxe. Just keep in mind this is supposed to be relatively affordable for everyone involved, so we mainly just want to keep customs within a reasonable scale.

    Due date can be...um, when's spring in your part of the world? I was thinking due in March...

    Fishdirt, we all know Predaking is more awesome. If you think Menasor would be easier, or Devs, why not make the Predacons construction vehicles or sports cars? Oh wait, don't do cnstruction vehicles, I'm already halfway through using that idea, don't steal it. ;) 

    Overhaulimus, make us proud. Or, at least, make us a Predaking. Either way, have fun... :)

    The world certainly needs more Predakings, that's for sure :) 

    Go for it :thumb 

    No due date. I think what will be useful for people is when those of you set out to make your customs, sharing as much as you can while you make it will rock. You know, pretty much like any other custom :) 

    Just the already established Forum rules that everyone follows :wink:

    The may be no due date, but do please post it the moment you finish your custom. We don't really want to wait now do we? ;) 

    Oh, and for the record, I won't be able to start until mid-January either, so take your time.

    Now this will be fun, and i agree with Satomiblood, deluxe works better for me as well. My combined form for the dinobots will have to wait. Predaking is waiting, ohhh this is gonna be fun.

    Okay, to be honest, the only reason I wanted to limit the size is because aside from this, I am also working on a Voyager Predaking (all limbs being voyager size), so i just don't want any competition for that. Deluxe class works for me.

    I think I know how im going to connect the arms to the torso. I still need to buy 3 more molds for the rest of the team, and then I needa buy some junkers to rip apart for the combiner parts.

    Speaking of Predakings, anyone know of a head that matches predaking but in a deluxe to ultra size?? I need a match with very little modding. Any help??

    This sounds interesting, scouts are reduced to €1.99 near me, so maybe I should have a look into this. If the limbs are scout, then the central piece is ok being deluxe?
