    I wonder if this idea got lifted from 3rd party companies. It can go the other way also. They are both working on the same stuff.

    If you look at Divebomb he's 100% MMC Talon, every detail, so probably.

    You know, looking at Volcanus.... makes me like Shuraking even more in combined mode. I'll probably get the dinos and just display in individual modes. Hoping Predaking scales with with Shura..

    Well that's..that's about what I'd expect the dinobots slapped together to look like.

    Honestly, most Transformers combiners never really impressed me. They just look like, well, that. Guess its mainly the scramble city style ones that leave me wanting. It's really only Abominus, Piranacon and Predaking that I dig from that style. With honorable mention to Bruticus. Devastator is one of the only combiners to really do the whole thing right.

    So the Volcanicon do not have wing pack like predaking, is just attach on swoop while combine as shown in the video. Oh that's sucks.

    Yeah, even if they can't do anything for the Lynx-saurus torso, I would've bought a PE set that had better turrets for Killbison, a larger, better integrated drill for Drillhorn, and a matching green gestalt head. Of course the trademark PE combiner hands/feet too.

    If you'd be interested, I've made a Shapeways kit that adds his signature turrets while also functioning as Liokaiser's weapon. :)

    Which in turn was a stolen from G1 Divebomb's look.
    :rolleyes: 

    Yeah, Predaking is the only thing I took away from the Dinobot promo.

    Video of the Dinobots combining.

    I like how Slug is staring and thinking, "Uh...How am I gonna get up there....?".

    Man that is one fugly excuse for a combiner... Funny how most were worried we'd get compromised dinobots to facilitate a decent combiner, when it ended up being the other way around. Awful combiner head, stupid name, no swoop wings on the back, just jumbled looking in general...

    This is going to take a lot of customizing and 3P upgrades to fix. At least they look good individually
