So I guess you couldn’t wait for DNA’s kit?
The DNA wings look kinda “long and skinny”, and make poor Divebomb’s wings even bigger than they already are in bot mode.
I thought these would be a nice option. They’re larger, “fuller”, and removable (parts-forming FTW! ). In fact, all my mods are removable (wings, gun, cannon extensions) if i wanted to strip it down to “stock”. If only the actual combine parts on the bots were removable... (that’d be a project for another set ).
Very nice mods. He looks very very good. I have a few ideas myself and I added a section to his canon to make it longer. I think the fit and look come close to perfect match as far as canon length to arm length. I think they look perfect. I’ll post pic of it when I get out of hospital. But love how the Devi wings came out. I think perfect to.
Looking good, love the new wings.
I kinda added a section to the POTP Predaking Weapon so that the barrel was a tad bigger making it a perfect fit allowing dimensions that fit his overall look. Take a peak at mine. Sharing here as it’s along the lines of what you did. The barrel section is from parts kit add on weapon for Briticus that I don’t use at all. Take a peak.
Looks good! Which Bruticus upgrade kit? The Dreamwave one? It doesn’t look like anything from Perfect Effect.
Very impressive! I really like the idea of using the Crazy Devy wings. I have a question on the shoulder cannons what the diameter of the tubing that slides down inside? I'd like to try something similar. The toyhax version of the labels is a must have because the stock stickers suck. as far as the feet diameter tubing can be inserted and built around to increase the total length but I think the feet are a nice width. Again awesome work so far.
I found 8mm heavy wall to be the best fit. You’ll have to do some light sanding to make it fit right. 7mm would also work, but would need building up or thickening.
Never thought about the feet toes. They seem fine to me, but for when they’re bot mode cannons, a small (like 1 inch or so) might be interesting...
Thank you for replying back and thanks for the Insight on the parts. I'm just getting back into customizing after a long absence I finished up a custom Predaking a little while back nothing to do with power of the Primes. However the power of the primes Predaking does have a lot of potential the figures themselves or a little tired but the combined mode definitely has a lot of potential. Thanks again.
Probably one of the third party companies might make a head upgrade eventually to make it more cartoon accurate.
It’s from this kit.
If they don’t, I plan to open the existing head and adding a light. A massively powerful, visible in daylight, one. >
It’s from this Warbatron gun upgrade kit. See pic above.
Did you happen to mod Rampage at all for his double elbow? Seems that, for many of us, Rampage (as an arm) keeps his legs closed better with a single elbow joint, than he does with the extended look.
He beat me to it but how on earth did you do it?
No mods, he always held together for me. Granted, I use him as a right arm (old school!), but that shouldn’t change anything. All I could suggest is possibly thickening tab ports (usual floor polish, superglue,etc technique).
Well, well well, this is going to be easier than I thought...
*rubs hands and laughs maniacally*
Predi got a Pedi!
(Head is progressing nicely, and still waiting on the upgrade kit for the new hands and waist pieces to finish this guy off!)
Predaking was already the coolest looking combiner and you managed to make him even better!
Thanks! He’s sooo close to finished! Check out my other thread for the set I’m doing “de-combined”.
