    This seems sort of fitting, being October and all.

    This Predaking will also have a huge morbid looking sword and a display base. I would also like him to have a throne, which I'm going to try and cook up tonight, made from styrofoam.

    Anyways, hope you guys like him.

    Very nice work here, Thy. Is this what you posted a few weeks back or another one? Reminds me very much of the Gestalt Generals from the Zone anime.

    looks great! the only creative criticism I would say is bend the knees a bit higher if possible. having them right at the animal heads make it feel (IMO) too short. but awesome job anyways!

    Interesting. I see Scorponok's body for the chest, Cybertron Supreme Starscream's legs, and Armada Unicron's arms and hands coupled with the G1 figures. It actually meshes together really well. Nice job.

    First off I think Nemesis Predaking is going to have a heart attack when he sees this because this is so awesome, that I can't put it into words.

    Very cool. I like the parts you used. Is he still a combiner or did you make him to just be Predaking?

    yep, the torso is from G1 scorponok, thighs are from Supreme Starscream, knees are from G1 scorponok, and shoulders and hands are from Unicron

    thanks bro. i hope Stu likes it.

    he's a combiner. he still detaches, and there's the crappy looking G1 bots. so of course he's meant to be displayed as "The Dark Lord".

    And if anyone's wondering if I'm going to be showing picures of the individual robots, the answer's no. just b/c it would take up too much time, and to me, it's not worth showing them.

    thanks again for the comments everyone

    i
    ll have new pictures up tomorrow evening with a bunch of extras

    God I love your work. Which joints did you go with for the connection of tantrum to the knee? Looks like lego knights but I didn't think they were strong enough by themselves to support the weight.

    I really think you've done a great job with this piece, man :thumb  I absolutely love the treatments you've done on the combiner engineering, with just adding bits to keep it as close to the base G1 mold as possible. I also like the new design changes and such you've made. I really think this custom is going to springboard your work into a whole new universe. Thanks for sharing and I wish you all the best. keep up the good work, man :thumb

    This is all kinds of awesome!

    I can see him in the Cybertron line as the "Dark Lord" of the Jungle Planet, this is great!
