    hey guys I just got him combined for the first time... got a question: (I didn't follow this thread closely):

    Is there anyone having problem keeping him standing? it seems a bit back heavy. Any tips would be greatly appreciated

    I think the loose part is the... swivel? (I think I got the terminology right), the part of Sharpclaw's thighs that rotate. That part being lose makes it really hard for it to stand, I think everything else seem solid. People talk aobut a fix but I can't find a link...

    Be careful how you place the feet with the legs. I believe there is a swivel fix but I can't recall what page. Or it might be on YouTube.

    No problem man! Glad I could help! And yeah, M3 is pretty cool and I think his "samurai" motif goes well with Warlord. Surprisingly, I think Warlord might still be my favorite combiner. I love them all but every time I pose warlord I am just amazed at how great the combined mode looks.

    YEah Warlord is just incredible! im absolutely a proud owner except i need Rampage to truly get the FULL experience! when i get fp menasor, i am immediatley doing something about its face! first ill paint its chin to match the face so its head/face wont look too tiny, and next ill attempt that mod that Daimchoc shared in which someone modded its head using sxs blitzwing upgrades face. looks absolutely stunning with it! gives off a Michael Myers vibe :)

    I have to admit I am actually tempted to get this instead of MMC. I recently got Bovis but didn't realize how big it is for a Voyager.

    Sorry for the terrible quality. The phone camera was the only thing I had at the time. Though I have not seen this comparison of War Lord yet so. Here is a new one.

    ordered from chimungmung on saturday, 1/25. delivered today. six business days, great great stuff. the thigh swivels need some serious help, the guy falls all over the place and has severe balance problems; i'll tackle that this weekend and hopefully get it sorted out.

    in the meantime, war lord is transformers divinity. click through to flickr for super-size.

    Ok, is this guy worth getting? Looking at getting him, I like UTs Galvatron.This is the only UT product I own at the moment. How does their Predaking quality wise hold up to Fp's Menasor and Mt's Giant. I guess I just want to know is he worth spending 375 or not? Thanks

    That depends. If you are looking for bots to play with or display..

    I recieved my set a while ago..it's an excellent display piece and I don't regret getting them but it has its flaws. Loose joints at the hips my set also had loose feathers on the big back pack..other than that it's pretty cool set..

    If Ya can only get one I would get MMC ver which I'm also getting.. the quality seems to be top notch..but I also dig this set...

    I also dig TFC set which I also am collecting..

    I like UT's Predaking, but the quality just doesn't compare to FP or MT. The paint is spotty (especially on the limbs) and there's some soft plastic issues on the main guy that can cause trouble- the hip joints and the wing pack specifically.

    I want something that Im not afraid to play with from time to time. I have been hooked on 3rd Party items since the first City Commander. The last 2 items I have purchased are FPs Menasor and UTs Galvatron. Menasor sits on my desk so I change him up from time to time, no issues with him what so ever. Galvatron I havent fiddled with much, because of Menasor. I like their Galvatron, but to me he just doesnt add up to a Maketoys or Fansproject item. Yes, I am some what one sided on their stuff. I had TFCs Herc and I prefer Giant over him. I didnt like the floppy rag doll feel of Herc. So back to the matter at hand, I might just have to check into MMCs Predaking and go from there. I just promised my wife I would calm down on the spending this year. At the same time I do not want to waist 350 bucks on a bot that wont stand the test of time being transformed back and forth. Theres just something about UTs Predakings look that I prefer over the rest I have seen.

    Alright here goes, I have Warlord and as a display piece it is magnificent. Will it stand the test of time, honestly, if it remains a display piece. Keep in mind this was UT first project. Alot of things could be better and I'm sure if they had it to do over again they would. I don't mess with warlord really at all except to take a few pics. I'm not downing UT or warlord whatsoever. But if your looking for something strong and durable and you can mess with day in and day out you should probably go a different route. I'm sure my UT brothers can attest. Now was warlord worth the money I paid, to me, sure was. But that is strictly on you. Now if and when they do their next combiner I'm almost 100% sure they are gonna hit a home run. But in the end it's all about preference and what you like. Hope that helps.
