    I bought another set of KO Tripredacus and design some new parts to convert them into the Decepticon Emperor of Destruction, Violen Jaeger.

    The members are all simple repaint with added 3d printed part except 1

    Trial combiner head design

    Do pardon the inconsistency in painting, I had just recovered from a respiratory problem and covid for quite a while so this was me trying to get back in the groove of customizing again, so results was ehh.. Apologies.

    The painting isn't bad by any means. Glad to hear you've recovered! Welcome back!

    Glad to be back :D 

    Thank you!

    Much better than about a week ago, I can breathe properly for a bit now :)

    Thanks! My health's not quite there yet, just needed a bit more rest

    Also. Printed the middle horn to complete the gestalt head

    I always thought tripredacus would make for an awesome base for Bio Ranger Iga!

    looks good! what's the quality like on KO Tripredacus? I'm a little reluctant to buy the beast wars kos after my experience with the undersized TM2 Megatron

    It has a very cheap feeling overall due to the plastic used, but its durable enough to survive rough play. I let my 2 year old nephew play around with it and it came out unscathed.

    Here's some pics so you can see the simplification.

    One thing I like about this set is the fact its compatible with the original figures

    Very interesting design and reworking for an obscure figure you've got here.

    That's an interesting question, because I think for Bat prime, I can just reuse my Hydra by giving him new bot and bat mode head. I don't think it'd be difficult to do, just take a bit of time to model something organic for the bat head as well as giving it a slightly more furred texture

    I think just reusing Hydra would be the easiest because you already have the figure and the transformation done, you just need to make a couple new parts and done.
