Many people have asked to see the combiner models for the Rahkshi. As usual, the Rahkshi have two combiners, each comprised of three sets. One, a quadruped, is formed by the combination of Vorahk, Guurahk, and Panrahk; the other is a biped made from Turahk, Lerahk, and Kurahk. Today we present Vorahk, on a pale horse. Or mount. Or something.
Each Rahkshi uses exactly 45 pieces. There are a few left over on this combiner, but that's OK. It's actually one of the better combiners I've seen. It's a bit unstable, but on the other hand, it's very poseable.
Guurahk and Panrahk form the front and back ends of this quadruped mount. A nasty-looking tail juts out the aft end of the critter, but it's a bit limp, not like the instructions show (yes, I double-checked). Hooking the two together are a pair of lower legs from Vorahk, who sits on top, legs dangling halfway to the ground.
You can make this set as tall or as squat as you want by adjusting the highly movable legs. The only big drawback is its tendency to sway back and forth. Let's hope Vorahk doesn't get seasick. Or, if you find yourself being chased by this beast, hope that he does.
Vorahk comes off easily. Two pins hold his buns in place during the rough ride.
This is a fun model to build. If you can stand to have your Rahkshi apart long enough to build it, do so. Although it probably won't take long to tear it down and rebuild them in their pure form once more.
