    I think, it must be a voyager-sized, if scale to legends.

    The sword is pretty cheaply made, unlike the WJ set. Despite knowing the translucent handles on some of the swords were prone to breaking, I broke one of them almost instantly out of package anyway.

    Also my sword arrived with the upper two upper component swords being identical and unable to clip together. So no giant sword for me, and the set is pretty much useless. After handling it though, I'm not going to try to get another set.

    They are supposed to be identical.

    Ok, thanks. Rechecked it and with some effort finally got it to attach. Was expecting it to be flush and those tabs at the giant sword tip were not cooperative. Assumed they were wrong all this time.

    Really liking this guy with the sword. Like others I was confused on how to combine the topmost pieces of the sword. Turns out you have to angle them just right and then kind of force them into place.

    If you mean combiner shoulder - yes. There should be black piece included with one of leg bots, just remove parts from sprue, disassemble Rampage's combiner part, replace parts and reassemble Rampage.

    Yes, these parts fit both arm bots.
    My apologies for confusion, I didn't know that set doesn't come with replacement parts (I think I read somewhere that set comes with properly tight shoulder ratchets, but I could be wrong).

    On my set of 5 individual boxes, which did come with the extra ratchets, the combiner shoulder on Rampage isn't a hard ratchet but it can hold the sword up just fine, the problem is instead on his hips aka Predaking's left elbow. The elbow can hold the sword up if the arm is straight but if you give the arm any sort of bend then it fails.

    Although I'm anticipating the Cang Toys Thunderking (hopefully they will do a boxed gift set once all members are completed), I still think this Weijiang version is very good and worth owning. Not many combiners can pull off this pose with the ease that the POTP mold does, especially at this size. My Zeta ones certainly are able to approximate it, but with tons more effort.

    Although there is no ankle tilt upwards and downwards or toe articulation, you can kind of fake it to achieve the resting leg by rotating the foot and the lower shin, both of which rotate independently of each other. The amount of articulation is insane for a guy this big. This cheap toy meant for children is easily my current favorite Predaking, although I do hope anyone else who makes one will be able to top this one regarding articulation and stability. These figures are all toys in the end, no matter how collectible/expensive/complicated they are, so the more play value you get out of them the better in my opinion.

    Would anyone know where I can pick this guy up? Was meaning to get him last year, seem like he was available everywhere but now I've been searching for a minute and can't find him. I did manage to find the the leg bots last night for around $30 for both of them which was pretty good.

    I'm in the same boat. I finally decided I wanted the KO set (for the individual bots, I have the official) but now it's evaporated. Ah well.

    Yeah it sucks, I've seen this thing everywhere months ago and I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted this one or Jinbao's oversized version. I recently picked up the POTP version but messing around with that made want the Oversized version even more. Finding those leg bots last night gave me some hope, I'm almost halfway there. Now I'm on a mission to complete this...lol
