    Head Complete! Added light and ball socketed neck! Used the Head from my second “non-combining” set, and attached it to a plate that locks in on top (original head is still inside).

    It's funny, I always saw the G1 Predaking as having a "battle visor", like Devastator.. But seeing this, he looks good as a cyclops.


    You may want to add something in behind the mouth though. In the photos, I can see a hint of light bleeding through the faceplate.

    That’s interesting, I always assumed he *was* a Cyclops/uni-visor. His visor narrows on the sides and has the biggest dip or opening in the center. Putting 2 leads would be either too close together or far off the side by the tiny slits.

    As for the mask, it’s completely masked off (as is the whole head). What your seeing it the camera and light reflections (possibly off the chrome stickers on the top of his chest area). :)

    Maybe. Looking at his "upper cheek" in the second photo, is where I was seeing the light bleed. It's great work in any case

    Minor update: Since the new head is a “parts-former” piece and doesn’t need to fit inside Razorclaw, I extended the antennas to be more artwork accurate.

    TheWarPathGuy Sorry, I just look very gouda. That was cheesy.

    Give him new feet and hands, to make him appear more threatening and bigger.

    Upgraded the feet already (see a couple posts up), and am waiting on the DNA upgrade kit to ship which includes some new hands (and waist fillers and sword I’ll be using). :)
