    That's a LOT of yellow on a figure that should have almost none. :mad:

    He is just one super stylized predacon, has some very minor G1 inspiration, I don't get why people complain about color accuracy.

    I really like the design, but I am still not impressed by the overall construction.

    Well...
    Primes and Predakings colors seem fine, so why would his colors be the only to look off.
    So yes

    Edit:
    But it could be that it is a review on a test shot

    Well, I'm in. If the combiner turns out good, awesome, if not I can use the figures to shore up the lack of decepticons on my T-beast shelf.

    A nero version should scratch your itch.

    Mixing bright red and orange and yellow often leads to "the fast food palette" and makes things look cheap. One needs to be careful when dealing with those colors. Or it looks messy and gaudy, like this figure is teetering right on the edge of. Whereas the original G1 colors do not.

    I'm definitely interested to see where this goes but I won't be sold until we get a full look at the combined mode. They might be bigger than I care for them to be in bot mode is my main concern. The yellow is a bit much but thats easily painted over. The stylization is appealing even if its not g1. I kinda like the beast mode is very zoids inspired. I could nitpick and praise this very evenly but I'll just leave it at "show me what else you got". I want to see the rest of your team.

    I need a SOLID MP Predaking in my collection and I had my eyes on Zeta Toys version, but this also has me intrigued. I want to know the overall plastic quality. Is it hard, thin, and brittle like TFC's previous combiners or like Zeta Toys and DX9 Capone's plastic where the plastic is thicker and feels like better material.

    I'm shooting for the moon on this one, but here's to hoping for CT for alt mode, ZT for combined mode, and FT for bot mode.

    I understand we would need a solar and lunar eclipse in the same day at the same time, but hey, I guy can dream right?
