...both look pretty sweet though.


*not sure why the second pic wont enlarge like the first did???

Wow! My memory of the G1's has been SUPER romanticized in my mind. MMC has made what I remember without knowing it.

I know what you mean.

Still to this day, whenever my sister comes over and sees my MP-04 and MP-05 on my shelf, she insists that they are the same toys from our childhood. I can't help but laugh, knowing the HUGE difference between them and the G1 toys.

Just goes to show how a GREAT toy design can capture the nostalgia and still give us the upgraded articulation that we always desired.

Wow Tantrum is a pretty lame figure. I do own the original reissue but that was purchased long ago and he's been untouched in Predaking mode since.


MMC has taken Tantrum, has put him on steriods and has given us something that is made of win and magic. I can not wait to see the rest.

As others have mentioned, even though I am a proud FP whore and a huge Menasor fan, as things stand, this project currently holds most of my excitement.

It makes it look EXTRA lame when you compare it directly to an updated toy done as well as the Tantrum that MMC has produced.

That's the main reason I don't collect G1 toys. No doubt there is that flash of nostalgia when you first get your hands on it, especially if it's still in box. But its much better (to me at least) when you get that initial blast of nostalgia, and then you realize how much better an updated, super articulated version of that toy you had as a kid is... and then you get to play with it too!

Sorta like breaking out the old NES/SNES and playing a few of the old games. A few minutes in, you start looking at the PS3 and 360 and wondering why you ever took the effort to pull those "oldies" out of storage and hooked them up in the first place.

exactly. I've never personally understood the love for original g1 toys or reissues. (other than nastalgic reasons of course, but I grew up right after g1 ended, so...)

I think G1 toys are for those who had them as a kid or those who admire the history of toys. I don't think they are for anyone that enjoys new age tech and engineering, especially those that NEED articulation.

Also, they display so beautifully.



And not to derail the thread, there is G1 Predaking on the third shelf, in the middle, at the back. lol

don't get me wrong, I understand that nostalgia plays a huge factor, but I didn't even see g1 until I was 19-20 years old. I enjoy transformers because they're transformers, not specifically because they're nostalgic.

SWEET collection DUDE!

Yeah, I wasn't trying to bag on anyone who does collect G1, just stating why I don't. I'm positive if I had enough disposable income, and the space to display them, I'd definitely have some G1 toys too. But as it stands, when faced with a choice between one or the other (G1/updated redesigns), I'll go with the the new articulated versions EVERY time.

Pardon the two second Paint job (its pretty rough but it shows what I mean), but this is what I mean when I'm saying there's clearly two sets of manes on Not-Razorclaw.

MMC Feral Rex Mega Thread-razorclaw.png

As you can see, the manes in both modes have distinctively different outlines, as well as the lion mode's mane being much larger.
