    I am happy to report that Red Swoop is not a floppy mess. Sorry, what I meant was: Red Swoop's joints are made of diarrhea. My copy was half dry, but your sewage may vary.

    Finally found a good body for tr ramhorn, loses headmaster functionality but the combiner limb is still fully functional and he makes a good junkion. Now I just need more wreck-gars and more heads that look good on the mold

    Finally got my DNA kit for Predaking. Haven’t done the ratchet upgrade yet(too tired tonight) but I definitely don’t regret it. The hands and sword made it worthwhile, the wings and filler bits are just icing on the cake. DC2F92B3-9F67-400E-9EBF-8D40E2378575.jpeg
    Yup. Ricochet is not great but he’s a statue compared to Droop.... , I mean Swoop! ;)

    What material have you used? I've had good results (at least I'm happy with them) using either of the smooth fine detail options that Steam Shield has these up with.

    I'm no expert or superstar customizer, but two things helped me with my sausage finger painting: Start with the deeper details (eyes, mouth) and go to the outer details. Also, dry brush as you go outward from the eyes to keep from spilling paint in your detail areas.

    Is potp predaking worth buying, and is he still in the 120 price range or has he gone down in price?

    I'm skipping since I want my combiners to all roughly be the same scale, and I'm not re-buying any of my current combiners in Titan Class. Way, way too big for my current collecting situation.

    Finally opened PotP Wreck Gar yesterday. Had him since January in the packet. Paired him with the Siege voyager optimus prime axe to see how it looked... PSX_20190519_083737.jpg PSX_20190519_084030.jpg PSX_20190519_134623.jpg PSX_20190519_083623.jpg PSX_20190519_083533.jpg

    That should be step #1 whenever opening any TF.
