    This just might take my top combiner spot. The individual articulation and sculpt for these reimagined beasts is amazing.

    I hope Cang Toys does Magnaboss or goes into Beast Wars II or Neo with designs like these. Big Convoy would look spectacular.

    Show us Predaking's body/torso and head!

    Best bird mode of all 3P birdformers if not the most expressive one. Not really seeing the similarities to Wing Gundam due to it's angular look, but definitely closer to the Freedom Gundam especially with the upper wing tips doubling as shoulder-mounted rifles.

    Now show us his ass damnit.

    It must vary. The cavity for my hands was way too tight, couldn't rotate the fists in "upside down", the fingers would get stuck, causing the forearm covers to not close. I'm glad yours doesn't seem to have that issue.

    Man, I am so excited for Firmament.
    Mmc's dive bomb is one of my all time favorite transformers figures, due to just how much personality he has with those wings, and this guy looks to have all that and then some.
    If I could afford it, this would be the one I double dip on.

    Think Divebomb looks great, except for the robot head, which reminds me of this: upload_2020-6-22_12-55-41.jpeg

    Simply stunning.
    Aleast now it's officially confirmed that their individual weapons will indeed combine to form the arm cannon. Those pegs on the back of Ferocious' gun kinda gave it away.
    Although I'm loving this set so far, I'm not excited for the giant bird feet in robot mode. Not a deal breaker by ANY means and I'm 100% in on this set but it does throw it off for me a touch, like he's weaing big monster feet slippers.
    The bird mode looks nuts, just awesome!

    Good!
    There's too much toon/toy accuracy.
    This is a breath of fresh air.

    I currently have him in arm mode on my yellow Constructor. He’s pretty solid without tabbing that piece in.

    Haven’t bought a TF since 2017. Divebomb pulled me back in.

    I finally had an hour or so on Father's Day to get to know this guy and I was pleasantly surprised.

    20200622_082227_copy_918x755.jpg 20200622_082256_copy_809x753.jpg

    Great box and artwork + I love the environmentally unfriendly foam packaging.

    20200622_082402_copy_534x650.jpg 20200622_082326_copy_652x741.jpg 20200622_082447_copy_794x714.jpg 20200622_082526_copy_938x486.jpg

    Bot mode is good, however, there are some scary tight joints and lots of squeakiness. He's just as hefty as FT Wierdwolf and way more posable than most modern combiner bots. He does look way oversized though when compared to some other con limb bots.

    20200622_082623_copy_875x592.jpg 20200622_082558_copy_963x402.jpg 20200622_082658_copy_846x418.jpg

    He wasn't too bad to transform from bot to beast, it was all semi intuitive after watching a few reviews.

    I'm my opinion, beast mode is where this guy shines. He has a ton of personality and great articulation as a cat.

    I'm tempted to buy a second set for Predaking mode just in case this is the last set of semi-g1 Predacons done by a decent company for the foreseeable future.

    Did you avoid using that piece on purpose?
    If ever there was a piece that needed to be die-cast, that piece would be it.

    Oh man after seeing the first figure I was out, I didn't like the colouring for some reason, but this birdie is crazy good looking and might pull me back in... Depending on colouring lol. Or I may wait for a Nero version, coz Nero looks really nice.
