    The best of the predakings that came out officially in my opinion was the leader sized voyager (the one that was basically an upscale cyberverse commander) but a better one would be nice, especially if it incorporated the 3 heads from the voyager version

    Wow... It's literally impossible to plug the tail ball joints into his head.... Unless I'm doing something wrong? Like, do you have to forced it in really really hard?

    Hair dryer to the back of the head for 20 seconds. Maintain a distance of two feet (60 cm) between the hairdryer and the figure.
    Oh, and wet the ball with a little water before pressing it in. (Giggity)

    So uh, to reiterate, what kind of stand is going to be able to hold up this guy? No point of grabbing him if I can't get him airborne in dragon mode.

    Thanks for the advice. That said I think I'm not going to install the tail to avoid damaging anything . The tolerance is just far too much.

    I have very little issue with the back heaviness. Mine seems to stand okay with the wings tilted up and fully unfolded. There are no die cast as far as I can see or feel, just hunks of solid plastic.

    YOu will have to wiggle it in slowly. While pushing the balljoint, turn clockwise and anticlockwise repeatedly. Got mine in after the first try

    Just transformed this guy, he's huge... way bigger than u think he is, and heavier.
    He would need a pretty heavy stand to hold him up. the picture doesn't do it justice...

    Would that stress out the plastics though? Going by look alone the tail's ball joint is bigger than the slot

    That is why I did it slowly to prevent any breakage.
    The upside is, when you manage to pop it in, popping it out became very easy and to pop it back again. I have checked both sides of the connection joints, there are no stress marks.

    He just bleeds glee for this figure. I'm positively giddy with anticipation. This is the figure that got me to start collecting. The original figure was my favorite figure when I was younger. Googled it one day came across this figure and fell down a massive rabbit hole. Cannot wait to have it in hand.

    Interesting..

    Can someone here be so kind and do a video guide on how to plug the tail ball joint into the slot in his head? I'm still not getting it . Like do you have to insert the joint at a specific angle? Don't want to damage this beautiful figure.

    I really need help with this :(

    Mine came in and I transform it once back and forth. It's pretty intricate and those sharp points do hurt my hands (especially when pushing the tail ball joint into the back of the head).

    I thought mine came with two identical wings at first until I realize it didn't matter as long as the longest wing is the furthest behind (or something to that effect).

    Other than that, the chest and the dragon head didn't really line up, not sure if it's because I didn't push it all the way or whatever, but otherwise the transformation is pretty awesome.
