If these are a similar scale to Hercules, I'm in . . .
CobramusPrime
Awsome! I think my wallet just had a stroke though...
masishadow
See, I hope they stick these in scaleish with fp and mt combiners.
Bountyan
I love the proportions of the combined mode. Just screams massive robot.
dwong1207
It looks hot...can't wait for it. Probably 2013.
SeekerofTruth20
Mmmmmm...personal financial crisis in the making.
TheGame2K5
So can I preorder this yet? LOL. Seriously though between this, the HOS Seekers, Hexatron, FP Menasor, and TFC Superion the next year is going to be amazing, and I will be poor.
Naztok
Just imagine if MMC went and made these each Cyclops sized

its nice to finally see them make these. I remember a few years back talking to one of the guys of MMC (though at the time there wasn't MMC yet) and he was showing me sketches of predacons and predaking. Looked awesome. This was one of his dream projects to do. Unfortunately lack of funds (certainly not lack of talent) was the holdup back then. I'm happy this dream project is seeing the light for them and for us fans.

It's impossible for me to get excited about something that I can't imagine actually seeing within the next twelve months given that they can't even give us an estimate on Hexatron who is much much further along.

My distaste for silhouettes has not been abated with this. Silhouettes are like over-the-pants HJs. Hard to turn down, but unfulfilling.

That said, I love Predaking, I like MMC's work and I'll be certain to give this a serious look when there's actual information to be had.

They didn't want to give an exact time for Hexatron as there's still other things ahead of it such as the HOS seekers and there's further testing to be done on Hexatron. They don't want to pull an iGear where toys keep getting delayed because of unrealistic time frame or factory delays. MMC wants to announce release dates once they know when the toy is fully ready to be mass produced.

That's good, but I think I'd rather have them not show anything at all until they're fairly certain of a release date. Waiting for years after the first tease kind of sucks, and they risk people losing interest over time, especially with all the other stuff coming out.
Or maybe I just want Hexatron and the Ferocicons NOW
CodeXCDM
Funny as it sounds... I don't mind if they are larger than FP's offerings... particularly because G1 Predaking towered over most other combiners. (Yes, I know beast probably should make a much smaller combiner than all the vehicular ones, but there's something imposing about it.)

I'm dying of laughter! ROFLMAO
deaculpa
I'm excited at the prospect but if course reserve judgement. I dont think I've ever liked their timelines from reveal to release. If anyone can do any lighting of the photos silhouettes it would be sweet.
Flyby33
Im all over this like a duck on a june bug.
Alucard77
I cannot wait for these. These will be epic. I need to remortgaged the house after all these announcements.

MMC is starting to show up Fans Project. I am more excited for their stuff then FP.
seali_me
Love the individual bots and alts but again the torso area looks skinny/lanky.

That's gold right there.

oh my.....

<weeps for his $$$>
Sonscreen
I want these but I don't mind being teased. I'm already saving up for Project Uranus and FP Not Menasor.
Motor_Master
... hopefully this will be 21" tall combined
Feralstorm
I want ... IF it can be done in a reasonably sturdy way.
Wyvern
The torso looks small. And the head is tiny. In Predaking mode I mean. Hope they can make Razorclaw a bit bigger.

That's fine. I didn't say they shouldn't try. I just said it's impossible for me to get excited about something that's coming "someday" that gives me little more than a small idea of what there is to be excited about. There are lots of toys that fall under this heading. Until today, Fansproject Menasor was one such project. Now that there's a thing to be excited about and, sure enough, I am excited.

Wow a razorclaw with proper proportions not to mention the tease of the our members plus Un-predaking (or would that be Herbaqueen? j/k) And an introduction by fansproject with Tuneup (un-Breakdown) and Speedlimit (un-Wildrider) And I told myself Herc would be the only 3rd party ghestalt. Scramble city love this year and I have no problem with that! My upcoming first born child will be ok with going to community college right?! Or does Sally Mae accept the excuse . . . "BUT it was Predaking!"
tantrum
I think the size of this predaking should be bigger than the other recent combiner figures like herc since the orginal G1 predaking was the biggest g1 combiner toy.
David Hingtgen
The alt-modes bug me a bit. Razorclaw and Rampage have *tiny* feet, Rampage's shoulders look odd, and Headstrong seems way too "horizontal/wide" for a Rhino.

Combined form looks awesome of course, but I really like combiners to be good in every mode, even if most people leave them combined 99% of the time.
Sinnertwin
MMC is really good about pretty fair pricing for what you get, not FP good but pretty good, so I'm hoping these guys are below Herc level pricing, maybe more around Giant. It really comes down to how big these guys are. Though, if it is Herc size and pricing, well, I like Predaking a lot more than Devastator and will drop the money on him. SO glad MMC is doing this.

My thoughts exactly. A tad beefier would have been nice.
cylor
i think this puts at rest Justitoys Tantrum sketch from last year.
Although, given MMC record, I don't expect Predaking to be complete before mid 2015.

Shouldn't Predaking be bigger than Devastator/Bruticus tho? If he is Herc sized he'd stand perfectly next to them. However if they are gonna scale with Herc/Superion then he needs to be fucking huge.....18+" at least.

Tuneup and Speedlimit? Actual names or something you made up? Cool names, either way.
Scaleface
I don't see any swords in the art. The Predacons need swords. Maybe Infinity Warfare.

Yes I've spoken to MMC and they are very aware about the fandom price sensitivity when they price their releases.

Here's another tease, there will be a sixth member as part of this crew, can anyone guest who it might be?
Geterman
Is the sixth member going to be the crotch and thighs to help fill out the torso section?

A sixth member, huh? Cool. Couldn't even begin to guess who though...maybe a Beast Wars Predacon in G1 Cybertronian style?

Interesting.

I need to see clearer pictures. Robot modes look so so, alt mode look pretty pretty good.
soybean56
This looks promising. Can't wait to see more.

If it comes out in FP/MT combiner size I'd still buy it, but I am really hoping for it to be Herc sized. Even though my prefered combiner size is the more familiar FP/MT scale, I'd LOVE to have a big, baddass, Predaking.

Wow! My mind is blown too much to even venture a guess.
Transbot90210
A 6th member? Wow, I haven't a clue. My guess is an orange, yellow and black submarine? lol

I could be wrong, but I think you are taking the word "member" too literally. LOL!
Xzbit
I just hope he is in scale with herc.Damn i cannot wait to see not-predaking my wife is going to fucking kill me this year.
Spyne98
I dig these, but I love my g1 Predaking. I'd want to see some final product photos, but they don't look bad at all from these teases.

My guess? Gnaw. (The Sharkticon.)

He was sold as a Predacon (or whatever the Japanese name for that group is) in Japan.
primetime77
this thing looks great so far. i am worried about thhe hips fo teh torso figure supporting all that weigh tin combined mode. we need some'solid ratchets there (like much much much more solid than cyclops has). would love this thing to be herc sized. in my mind predaking is only a tiny bit bigger than the other combiners....who knows...he never had a fight with anyone besides sky lynx if i am remembering correctly so scale is hard to judge.
sh002
they look great. g1 predaking displays well with my chug collection so sticking with that.
