    CHUG is an acronym for Classics, Henkei, Universe, Generations. They're the official line of G1-inspired mainline retail toy Hasbro and Takara have been releasing since, what, '06? It includes sub-lines like Reveal the Shield, Combiner Wars, and Titans Return.

    While the term has been used to describe 3P figures that were always meant to go with official CHUGs, it's often used pejoratively to describe any figure that the speaker feels is lacking some arbitrary quality to be MP enough for them. Ex- "I hope someone else makes an MP Brawn. Brawny is too chuggish, there's like no paint on him."

    I can't wait for this primal, but I have a feeling it'll be over $100. I'm not to familiar with generation toys price point on figures, what to you guys think this will go for?

    Hmm, I was hoping this would match up with MP Primal but it looks like it could be quite a bit larger?

    That is a very silly-looking head. I can only hope it looks better in color, but as it stands...

    Yeah, was excited for this project until I saw that head. If it releases with that I will be passing.

    Good to see it again but hope this whole line starts going quickly. They could make these for years if they can hit some decent quality metric and keep it there.

    New from their Weibo , not final . Can’t remember if t-beast’s primal had blue eyes instead of red but hope there’s a red alternative , kinda feels off with blue. 75FF9C7F-1C3C-412E-A7E9-410233F4E6DB.jpeg CB0BA3FA-64A9-40BF-BCAF-BAA6651FD70F.jpeg EAA66447-45DB-4D56-BD28-07BBD4FDE88B.jpeg C31222E9-82B0-4B1D-9426-4F6CC778391F.jpeg 6EDE4629-1E09-4A53-BC95-559CEC5ADB57.jpeg EA7C77D2-B5C0-48EB-BA6B-E4E1C8C46792.jpeg 32A847DF-6542-47FF-93EC-DE466901DA76.jpeg FDA5FE6A-D077-421B-8CA7-466B8E0B5D66.jpeg F62EC904-E89C-4824-A7C6-BE33EF6CAD83.jpeg

    Looks like the gorilla head flips around and lowers to form the chest...not sure I'm liking the overall alt mode and that gorilla head tho. I have this on preorder but may rethink this...

    something does feel off , maybe gotta wait on the final render preview or that mouth that’s iconic to primal . I think I saw someone else mention the gorilla head as well in their post

    Looks great.

    Generation Toy is picking up the pace. I am guessing that their combiner designers and other designers are working in tandem.

    Personally, I think this guy looks quite hot, but those dead eyes in robot mode just kind of suck. Knowing GT it's probably going to have an LED in the head, but I would have rather have had some nice metallic red eyes.
