like you said, maybe it should be in the first post.
Hey! First time posting, but you all were having too much fun chatting about this project for me to ignore. I suppose, to be constructive, I should post my own opinions on the matter.
I adore the general look and design of these figures and, like many of you, nearly swooned at today's peek at the upgraded combined form. I am impressed that Mastermind Creations is takeing so much care to consider the words of their fanbase: these people are serious, passionate, and unafraid to to take some risk to improve their product. I respect that deeply and it's a rare, precious bond between consumers and producers.
Thanks to Cenobite and Rravager (Sorry if I spelled those wrong!) for keeping an ear open for us!
For nitpicks and concerns: While I do not own any of their work, I have seen reviews for MMC's previous releases... occasionally, important joints or locking tabs can be rather flimsy and worry the reviewers. With something with the sheer size, mass, and inherant instability of a combiner, those sort of things might be disasterous, so I hope they're applying the same brilliance to strength as they are to design. I sort of wish Feral Rex's thighs were a tad longer OR his arms a bit shorter, to perfect his impressive proportions.
I'm torn on the wings... I sort of wish they were either longer or could flare open in a more impressive display... but if they got any larger, it would be that much harder to store him. Can the wings fold down, forming a less-obstructive cape, I wonder? Maybe I should be asking for that...
I love the stabby-weapons combining into a sword angle... can the forearm-cannon go on either arm?
As for the mystery of the Sixth Member, you guys have it all wrong. The final member is a giant Junkion, so Feral Rex can ride an appropriatly sized, orange, brown, yellow and black, spike-covered motorcycle into battle.
There, now you can't stop thinking about it.
The 6th member is the buyer, Mr Human Being, the most perfect predator in existence, proven through hunting a number of animals to extinction. It's free of charge
Mmmmm, 5 giant robots combining to form a enormous one, riding a giant robot that transforms into a giant motorcycle... I can live with that
Welcome to the forums!
The sixth member is going to be a bot that is black and gold transforms into a slingshot so that Feral rex can shoot explosive raccoon's at his enemy's.
Already been done via Super Sentai show Gobuster.
I might be alone on this one but I'd kill for a giant beast-themed bike that Feral Rex could ride xD
As a bonus, mini roast beef sandwich for Rex to hold as well.
He could feed Not!Razorclaw's head while killing with his sword. Other Transformers would never grasp how many levels they'd just been outclassed in.
Crazy Devy is around somewhere plotting to make this happen with add-ons.
Man, this thread just blew up!
Glad I preordered Divebomb--Tantrum, here I come!!!
Has it been stated if the sixth member adds more height to the combined form or not? Is the 32cm measurement for the team of five or six?
Another one of those questions that needs to be added to the first post...
Search for posts coming from CenoKibble...
Jigga, please update the first post....
And TFC Toys Superion! So yeah, add 2 more combiners to that list. There's soooo many higher end stuff coming out this year!
inb4 the 6th figure is BW Megatron
That would be awesome.
The sixth member is... Tripredicus!
32 cm? that's like not even a full inch taller than the original predaking...wtf, man?
That's going to look absolutely rediculus next to Herc.
Edit: never mind, just looked at comparison pics...could have sworn herc was taller...it's not going to look rediculus, he's just going to look short.
In all fairness, voyager Prime is too small.
Haha, I think there would be a huge fandom splosion if that happened!
