    Having the combiner's head inside Razorclaw means the lion mode will have a stout upper body which is good news.

    I fear if this really is the case that either the head is going to be comically small, or Kinglion is going to be QUITE big. I'm more okay with the latter, but I'd frankly rather it be a whole separate piece so we're not compromising too much on Kinglion as a figure.

    RazorClaw does not need to be Big himself.
    The Space Inside his Chest must be Big.

    All available RazorClaws from Mastermind Creations and TFC had the Head Stored in their Chest. The Combiner Head always had the right Size.

    Quite a lot of older 3p combiners have done this technique fairly well.

    I’m totally “camp partsforming” as a stable great proportioned bot is much more what I’m after as opposed to being able to cram all parts into each member just to be able to say it’s not partsforming. So any guesses whether it will be 6 purchases/releases or can we expect 7 and beyond? Can’t wait to fiddle around with Firmament from ShowZ

    That's a hard call. Cause if they keep it as six, the feet would have to come with Kinglion, Thorgorilla, or number 6. Which is going to make them be a bit pricey for the 'bundle'.
    Or, and I like this option a bit less: They sell a separate package that is the two foot-bots by themselves. It could be done if they're solid bots in their own right as a two-pack, I think. But...ehhh. I feel like it should be a bit more to justify that.


    Doesn't mean Cang Toys is going to. And to have a big chest, he'd have to be a big figure. Looking at his proportions he still has the 'roughly hourglass' shape like Ferocious...and with how short/stocky the body and hind end of his lion mode are, I just don't see a proportional head fitting into him without some weird and possibly gross transformation gimmicks to fluff the head (kinda like the PotP one's waist where it just opens two panels with a hollow spot between to make his abs).

    I just don't see it working without some serious compromises on Kinglion as a figure.

    Small edit/note: Either way, I'm going to be pleased with it. But I would not be surprised to see them go the partsformer route, since they're not exactly following 'the norm' with this set. I mean...we have monkey pants and wolf/hyena feet. Just keep an open mind to the possibility.

    Just got Ferocious from Show.z today. Man, pics don't do this guy justice. Could only snap one pic since my daughter and wife are both sleeping and his joints are noisy as all hell, but he poses well. Here's a quick pic on my daughter's desk with Landbull.....

    IMG_7983.JPG

    For as limited in articulation as Landbull is, his presence alone makes the poses you can get him in simply amazing, in my opinion.

    I know I said this before, but I'm seriously hoping Kinglion is articulated more like Ferocious than Landbull. These figures just BEG to be posed dynamically and their size, style and quality really shines when you're able to.

    I get the feeling whatever they call Headstrong is going to be pretty similarly articulated as Landbull, which is disappointing to say the least. It's really my only gripe with these guys, along with the nonsensically light piped beast mode eyes.

    Thought i'd do a quick color edit to see what he'd look like with more of his original color scheme

    Yo! That looks MUCH better! Cang Toys, I really hope you see this. That shows just how great the sculpt itself is.

    Great job, @Pomeru.

    Amazing work! I hope Cang gets Kinglion's mane like that and also the black shins.

    I think the gold colours will look impressive combined but that recolour shows the mood better to me. Makes me think the “in hand” pics and presence will be a lot better than initial impressions

    I also suppose the combiner head is in his body too.

    I hope you emailed that to Cang before you took the time to post it here. That looks awesome.

    Wow I think that color scheme would single handedly placate a lot of the complaints that have come out about Razorclaw.

    Couple more quick snaps from my daughter's desk. This guy's so much fun.

    Why can't these two just play nice?

    This is what happens when you touch his plate while he's eating....

    This is why I'm a dog person

    I have a couple Firmaments on their way from Terry's. Can't wait to fiddle with him when they come. Somebody asked earlier and I never saw an answer. Is there a good stand that fits the hole in Firmament well?


    My wife is totally disgusted with her grown assed husband posing toys and snapping pics on her daughter's homework desk. Meanwhile, my daughter thinks she has the coolest dad in the world.
