    Ever since my last custom i sold last year, i got so many requests to please make a predaking. So heres what i came up with hope you like it.

    So what I did was make a custom that didn’t move away from the original but mirrored the original at a larger scale with a lot more modern technology. Pretty much my main goal was to create a g1 figure that was more g1 than the original, 80’s style, with 2009 technology.

    PREDAKING EXTRAS :HIP ATTACHMENTS, HANDS/FOREARM ADDONS, FOOT ADD/ONS, AND SHOULDER/WING ATTACHMENTS. “note: the only extra part as compared to the original one from 1984 is the hip attatchments.”

    Accessories: predaking arm canon and die-cast SAMURAI swords.

    PLEASE NOTE: NONE OF THE ORIGINAL g1 PREDACON ANIMALS WERE HARMED DURING THE MAKING OF THIS CUSTOM...hahaha

    Special features:
    -2 foot retractable wings, over 30 points of articulation in the wings alone!
    -Stands 2 feet tall from point of shoulder cannons to toe cannons, no need for a stand this monster stands on its own 2 feet due to its perfect symmetry and balance. STRUCTURALLY SOUND!
    -light up LED eyes in PREDAKING HEAD.
    -5 figures each transforms from robot mode to animal mode and all join together to form 1 large figure.
    -over 100 points of articulation total within this figure, I stopped counting.
    -Very scratch resistant and durable enamel paints applied to match g1 styling
    -gold flake highlights
    -every connection point is built into each figure and snaps together securely and releases with ease.
    -100% Hasbro/takara parts bolted together using screws and bolts no glue was used on any piece of this figure.

    sweet primus.

    That is just INSANE man!!

    I'm seeing you used Unicron's rings as a base for the wings, yes? are those Terrorcon wings from Energon?

    Wow man, this pulled together great! Two feet? Solid? mother trucker XDD

    Okay, I was actually checking this thing out ever since you started to reveal your individual predacons. I think you really hit the mark! This thing isn't jsut BIG it's GINORMOUS!

    wow!

    My only complaint is that the sword you used looks really out of place. I never imagined the raw savage Predaking to use a sophisticated sword like the katana. A broad sword would suit him better.

    Anything else: Mad props!

    i take it you like it?

    Solid as a rock, had to be due to the size, hes a lil over big...hahaha

    sorry excuse the filters i just love using them on some scenes because it really gives me that comic book animated cartoon feel. But im sure i put up enough pictures this time to make up for them.

    A lot bigger...lol i still have menasor but i dont know how long for.

    Yeah i was thinking that, but as i was studying and constructing predaking he really gave off a samurai look from his head to his organic like armor, so i went with it. whats coo is that the sword is die-cast. thanks again man for the compliment.


    Thanks man, actually yeah this is going to the auction block this is the custom i got the most requests to make, took me about 6 months to make so here it is.

    OMG a gestalt with ability to make awesome dramatic poses. Great job! I'd like to see his torso a bit more detailed, though, don't get me wrong, I couldn't do this in a 100 years!

    I must say that I've been waiting to see this piece. I truly think the wait was worth it :) 

    The individual modes we've mostly seen, and I think the strength of this piece is two fold: the individual modes and the gestalt robot. Now, before you say "uh, well that's all there is", let me quantify myself with my only critique: the wings. I can definitely see many reasons why the choices were made for them, I suppose I think the Beast Wars-ish aesthetic clashes with the robot design just a bit. I'd like to see some Gundam-esque wings instead, I think.

    That being said, I think this robot is the greatest benefactor of the Unicron parts for the gestalt mode. I think the designs of those Unicron parts really flow well with the design of Predaking. An area of this piece I really enjoy is how cool Razorclaw looks as the torso. I think the limbs may be just a tiny bit enlongated, but that doesn't bother me much since he is . . . well, a robot! The backpack cannons look cool, the fists look nice . . . there is honestly a lot of good things to say about this piece.

    Great work :thumb
