    Just report the first post and put in the request to change the thread title to a new one. Please be kind to the mods. :)

    Title changed, removed OS from the title.

    FYI, if no one reports that the thread title needs a change, it most likely won't be done. Just making a post in the thread that a title change is needed won't be flagged.

    I would have if I had a clue how one did such a thing.
    I can see that by the above references there is a method - but I was and indeed still unaware of it.

    But anyhow thanks for noticing (daimchoc) and reporting it howover that is done and thanks to edgs2099 for making a change.

    I frankly didn't know that was what 'Report a post' was for. I don't like to do something I shouldn't in accidental error, which is why I mentioned it in passing in the thread in hope that someone would know what to do.

    ------------

    Anyway... Predacons.

    I wonder why they didn't go arm,leg,arm,leg and instead went arm,arm,leg - and presumably leg. Perhaps it's got something to do with shared engineering on the legs.

    No problem. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle and all that.

    Found some images on TransFans facebook page.

    Slightly bigger feet that can also store the combiner hands.

    Judging from the shape of the hip area the right and left legs might be swappable.

    yeah there are definitely some changes in the size of this thing and I love it. If you look at the top down pick of the beast mode with the foot attached, you can see that the front legs of both Rhinos are on the same line and for the Hasbro version the back feet are on the same line too but for the KO the back legs are a least a line wider (which I think equates to an inch depending on the mat the photographer is using.) The combined mode hip is slightly smaller then the Hasbro version and I think the thigh is just perceptibly thicker but shorter. This and the larger foot should make for a much more stable and proportioned Predaking. Still not perfect I think his waist is going to be a little small but all the subtle and not so subtle (DEM WINGS) size changes will make this the one to get.

    Only slight bummer is I pre-ordered a $20, right before the price dropped to $15!

    Well my Not-Rampage arrived yesterday ; opening the box felt exactly like getting an NBK Constructicon - the plastic is about the same, he even has untrimmed sprue marks all over him like an NBK bot does.
    But I don't mind, the plastic quality isn't great but neither is it quite a B&M Bargain's style KO either. But I like it enough to keep buying them.
    I'd say the plastic quality is a tiny bit below the TFC designed Dinobots or the Wei Jiang Overscale RID & Combiner Wars or Alcee and substantially lower quality than the KO Oversize candy coloured Dinobots : but it's not quite full on bad crumbly KO plastic - but it does seem like it has a little bit to much air in the mix. Where as the Lubo/Lupo Optimus (also supposedly a Wei Jiang Brand) feels like Hasbro standard plastic to me.

    I kinda wish they'd up the plastic quality a little and perhaps included a little metal - but as an analogue to the NBK bots they are perfectly fine.

    I can't believe people still say stuff like "Not" Rampage. In a KO thread no less.

    That pic on the box was definitely misleading. This is more like what I expected.

    And they retooled the feet to accommodate the bigger hands, as I expected.

    Bigger feet, definitely an improvement. The design's a bit more interesting, too (imo). And going by the pics, I like the colour of the plastic of the feet better than the Hasbro one, as well.
