    They said no, you need to get a complete set.

    I’d be all for combiners with swords, but I don’t think my current living circumstances will allow it. :( 

    Besides, Predaking is awfully big. Has anyone (third-parties?) attempted theorizing a Predaking that’s more bearably sized like Superion or does Predaking’s nature of having to partially partsform keep that from happening? Is he supposed to tower over other combiners anyway?

    To me it looks like the smaller yellow parts can be removed from it to form smaller swords. But who knows.
    Sadly this is 1500 Yuan + shipping so even more expensive than most ebay prices. And they used pictures on the page so google translate cannot tell me anything...

    I'm actually surprised at how much I don't like, or need this.

    I'm aware. Look at the blatant detail stand outs. It looks like a KO of DNA.

    I know right!? This is some legit bootlegery. I mean the colouring is nice but overall it seems a bit pointless. Especially since you’ll need to do a fort max and get a whole figure with it.

    That as well! I really like that lightsaber design and am sad they’ve never gone back to it. It just looks so much cooler. And a new arm cannon would be cool as well.

    I'd like this but don't really want to sink another big chunk of cash into Predaking when there's a lot out and coming out I'd rather spend my money on.

    Not sure if you were serious but i would believe that. Looking at the closeups around the hilt it looks like that softer, messier molded, rubbery plastic where the colours are poured on eachother. Also where the blade starts, it looks like a detach point.

    It's ok looking. It would look a lot better if the blade didn't look like it's made out of cheese.

    I really can't believe this is an official Hasbro part...
    knowing China (and I know China) this is probably something the retailer had
    made on their own initiative/it may be "semi-official" but the shit quality I think
    is further evidence Hasbro is not involved...

    I'm hoping this will be something people will just sell on its own in the future like some those MP accessories, like the flame effect for Grimlock's sword.
