    It seems that Firmament is spreading his wings and will leave this week. My Stunticons are already on their way.

    The Predacons are a bit like the Constructicons, in that - ideally - all the members are the same size. To illustrate the point, with the original G1 figures, Razorclaw (the torso) was pretty much a retool of Rampage (one of the arms). Hasbro did it again with the Titan-class Predaking recently (and severely compromised the two leg bots in order to achieve the effect).

    So yeah, given that they’ve gone to all the trouble of creating a sixth member to provide extra torso/hip/thigh mass, I’d be ever-so-slightly disappointed now if Razorclaw wasn’t the same size as everybody else.

    Ultimately, though, combined mode has to take priority, so if they need to adjust the size of Razorclaw to make a better-proportioned Predaking, then I guess I’ll accept it (through gritted teeth!).

    If the measurements I saw are correct his wing span should be about 2 ft (50cm I think)

    Firmament is pretty amazing, the wings do make it a bit back heavy though. The three look great together and is the arm cannon is anything to go by, it's going to be huge!

    This team is looking AMAZING so far, I'm looking forward to seeing my Firmament once ShowZ ships after CNY.

    Thanks for the review!

    So... with all the earlier talk about naming Monkeypants, we never discussed what to name Crabhands. Cancer? Krusty?

    Do the bottom wing feathers still separate to double as blades? Haven’t seen anyone do that.

    @Andika Hidayat posted Cang Toys Thunderking Combiner (Predaking) which linked to Stark Figure's video on it, and at 12:06 he separates them, but not sure if they turn into what you're expecting.
