    That looks really good. Have you put all the included stickers on the figures?

    I haven't watched Ben's review either but does combined gestalt have good limb strength?

    Unfortunately that appears to be the MMC molds, which I’ve always found to be quite disappointing. The POTP Predaking has a beautiful simplicity that ends with a wonderfully posable combined form, the MMC is an awkwardly bloated thing.

    Well, 'Steel Claw' turned up today, courtesy of Show Z - I wasn't expecting him till next week, and I didn't waste any time putting all the Predacons together (I didn't waste time with either of the individual modes. That's not why I got these guys. I do hope that we could one day get versions of the G1 Predacons without combining modes (and their compromises)).

    I can say this right now. I'm not getting the feelings of disappointment I was getting from the Hasbro version (actually, I was thinking 'This guy is beautiful.':) .). The wings are bigger. The hands are more articulated, and look more formidable, despite not being quite as spiky as they might have been. I did reverse the barrels on the shoulder guns. that looks better (imo). This guy looks like what I wanted Hasbro to make (the bigger mane is a nice touch), though I did wish he was the same size as the 'regular' combiners. That is, I did wish. Now, though, I'm quite fine with him towering over other combiners, looking scary.

    I'm not a fan of electronics, but the LED inside the head doesn't affect anything else negatively design-wise. I did open up the head to take a look, and I'm not sure whether to paint the inside black or keep the 'glowing lightbulb-head' effect which I find kind of amusing.

    There are a few things I would have changed (locations of screws, etc) but overall I really like WJ 'Predaking'.

    Now to wait for the sword (I am glad the replacement part from WJ for the 'Rampage' combiner arms seems to be working fine). There seems to have been some mention of it coming with other stuff in the Steel Claw videos. I don't know if that's just speculation, though.

    The chest, has a hole under the neck doesnt have most of the chest details the screw is too big thus the abdomen details are wrong also the belly is now too wide because of said screw but again the chest suffers the most

    Same here. The only guy I messed with was Sharp Blade. Never owned the original, had KO G1 a couple years ago that was laughable at best. The other MP attempts look decent but have issues. This seems like a decent stand in. And one that can be fiddled with.

    So I wait impatiently for this dumb lion to arrive from TFD. Should be several more days unfortunately.

    Waiting sucks.

    I'm thinking they could one day do Deluxe pre-combiner versions of Razorclaw and his team. Razorclaw and Rampage could share a mold, as could Tantrum and Headstrong (as usual - minus giant back-pack things). Divebomb could be remolded from one of the other current winged beast Deluxes.

    I'd buy those on sight.

    I've been seeing people hating on this quite a bit. I don't know what people were expecting but, I dont think even NASA engineers could rescue the bot modes.

    I need advice.

    Is the shoulder arm ratchet of WeiJiang predaking stronger than the DNA shoulder arm ratchet replacement?

    Saw some videos on DNA one and it cannot hold the weight of its own DNA sword!

    Would appreciate if someone could confirm of WJ version is stronger to hold DNA big sword.

    Thanks.

    I don’t have the DNA sword so I can’t say. The gun he comes with he holds just fine in any position.
