    True but is it worth the effort, guess I'll just clearance them and just take the hit.

    yeah but if you're going to try at a convention you might have better luck with hgh prices as most people just splurge at those events

    Well, if anyone is piecing out their set, I need a Bovis, with instructions/comic, and accessories, of course. Hand/foot bare minimum, or else I won't even consider it.

    Also, I haven't been able to figure it out... is there a way to mount Leo Dux's cannon on his lion mode? There's that T-shaped thing on a hinge at the back, and I can't figure out what that's for.

    Mine are still in the box, never even opened them. I would never sell them though .......I want to be that guy who lives to 103 and still have my set. How weird is that?

    Attaching Fortis's box guns for the combined cannon for FR. Also, that hinged T can be mounted into Tigris's beast back... But no real convenient way to have it on Leo, AFAIK.

    Ahhhhhh! Couldn't have been Bovis! Hahaha... great deal though! I would have considered getting a second Fortis if I didn't already have the pieces that mine is missing on the way.

    That sentence made my grammar hurt.

    First-ever 3P cosplay? Or is it the most OS KO ever, being over 6ft tall I'd guess?

    Twitter (includes video)

    Yeah, it says Predaking, but that is 100% a Feral Rex costume:

    It seems that the joints aren’t strong enough to hold up the sword and the proportions are off. And on top of that, it is not toon-accurate. 0/10.

    So during these times, i started organizing my figures. I forgot I had this face kit. It is REALLY easy to install the faces. You don't need to unscrew the back of the torso at all. The heads for Bovis and Fortis connect to the body via flat mushrooms pegs that slide in. Look carefully and you will see it. All you have to do is slide the heads out. Then remove the screw on the head, remove old face, install new one. Done. It took me all but 5 minutes to do each. I'm sure most don't care at this point, but if you do, there it is.

    ...i kept hoping that feral rex would become cheaply available after prime wars predaking, but it looks like that's never come to pass: maybe after a good third-party masterpiece?..

    I've seen the set go for around the $250-300 mark. You can also try and piece him together as I seen some on eBay. I believe right now on eBay there's a Fortis/Headstrong for a starting bid of like $29 with ZERO bids.

    What about some better options? The one from CANG-TOYS looks promising!

    Not that it helps you right now, but I sold my fully upgraded Feral Rex back in December for about $250-275. Mine was a steal considering everything it came with, but you should be able to find second hand sets within that range, if not cheaper. And some of them may even include some, if not all, of the upgrade kits too.

    I got mine's for sale for $280 shipped for all 6 figures and most(?) of the upgrade kits. Not sure how many kits were out there, but it has the extra faces and guns at least.

    Still a stunning Combiner IMHO. Sure it may be outdated and is a smaller Combiner by todays standards but this is what got me into this hobby and ironically CangToys "PredaCang" might be swan song in the hobby.
    (Now I'm wondering if I should get my set out of storage. If an avalanche of boxes fall on me,I know who to blame @Robots78 lol:D  Cheers man!)
