    Is the shipping service that Sirtoys uses also off for the Chinese New Year? .... cause that would suck.

    Yes they are also clesed for CNY, but I emailed paul about this and he said he was closing down for CNY a week early, so we should (hopefully) be fine if we ordered by the 15th. Hope this helps.

    Thanks. I ordered right on the 15th so I hope it goes through by the time everything shuts down.

    Theres a message on the front page of sirtoys that says: 'All orders placed before Jan 16th will be shipped before the break. All orders during the break will be set to 'On Delay' until we are back (early Feb.)'

    What seller did you use? Also, what do we search for to find it on there? I find nothing under Predaking or Feral Rex...

    Ebay:
    Just a heads up. The waist section of the orange dude that becomes his right arm is held together by 1 tiny screw. It's pretty easy to pull that screw out, stripping the hole in the process. Super glue has at least temporarily fixed the problem, but I think I'm going to have to pick up a spare in the near future just in case.

    Just got this guy today, and I must say, he takes a little getting used too ...
    My quick points of issue;
    Razorclaw's hips should've been ratcheted better for stability.
    Divebombs body is moulded incorrectly so the ratchet-joint for Predaking Arm mode doesn't work.
    Weight distribution is not centralized so can end up leaning too forwards or backwards.
    In extended mode, from the side, his hips look hollow, due to no hip skirts.
    Tolerances are good on some, while terrible on others.
    Instructions are completely hideous and worthless, pics are too dark and cant tell what is going on.

    All in all, In Predaking mode, he looks awesome.
    Considering it is a KO, I think he's worth the money and worth the shelf space to display.
    And when the upgrade kit comes out, it'll be even better ;) 

    Also, his sword is ridiculously oversized, but man, its awesome :D

    ...forgive me for asking, but do we know what the upgrade kit might contain? I'm assuming we'll get new heads but what else? ...and, any ideas as far as price?

    yeah I noticed that too when I disassembled him. I may try to reinforce that joint when I reassemble

    all we know is new heads, hands, and feet. What we don't know is what that means like are we getting all new hands with wrist swivel, or just new combined hands. There was a price post earlier, but I can't find it. It was cheap, like 7 USD, IIRC.

    No hip skirts? My KO razorclaw definitely has hip skirts. Are you talking about an extension to the skirts?

    Here is a pic from robh earlier in the thread

    In predaking mode, there is only the crotch plate at the front.
    The sides don't have any cover.
    The individual bot modes look fine apart from the OR heads on some level.

    check my post on #139, even has a picture, so if you can read Chinese, you will get more details. In short:
    The improvement:
    1) combiner hands
    2) single robot hands,
    3) combiner heads, same size as MMC one.

    price: 35 RMB.

    I saw a seller had this on ebay for 85.99 shipped. Thinking too good to be true.
