    I was thinking the same thing. And while I do like the stylized look, I'm looking for a bit more toon accuracy for my MP scaled Predaking. But needless to say I'll follow this with great interest.

    Agreed. TFC really stepped up their game with their last couple of combiners. If this is the same designer, then this project is in good hands.

    I have War Lord & I just bought Ares. Don't need to waste any more money on Predaking.

    It would be nice of the 3rd party companies would STOP making the same characters over & over & over. We're way overdue for Misfire, Slugslinger, Triggerhappy, Darkwing & Dreadwind.

    Tantrum\'s beast mode I\"m a bit meh on, but Rampage looks so gooood. I wonder how tall the small bots are. (Not that I need another Predaking set but I\'m dumb and prone to fiscally irresponsible urges)

    The aesthetic is kinda Zoids-ish in appearance.

    They look great...but if you look at the arm mode holding the sword , it looks to heavy to support

    That sword and hand dont go with this combiner. But I'm sure predakings sword will be humongous too

    Oh my, that is an impressive gallery. I dig the stylized look. And it's been so long since I've paid the ol' large format combiner game any mind. Last time was Poseidon, who actually had a sense of detail I'm kinda getting here. Which is great, because between how long it's been and there are FOUR Predakings out there, this guy needs to be pretty special.

    How do you impress me right? I liked Feral Rex's Rampage so much I got a second Felisaber on sale to mod. So rolling in with a beefy kitty able to turn my head is a hell of an opening statement.

    Tantrum is another solid win that looks so much like a bull, I am genuinely curious if Headstrong (or Divebomb for that matter) will share engineering like Rex's crew or be completely unique. Or split the difference with really clever retooling on the same skeletons.

    I am actually a little mad Poseidon's hands are just hands now. At least I'm pretty sure they didn't do anything else. Making them into a crab is brilliant and so up their alley. Smart use of your combining bits is always an easy way to score bonus points with me.

    Dat sword. It's huge and the variety of reasonable looking weapons it becomes is satisfying. If Poseidon had one issue, his joints weren't up to lifting a buddy gun or stupid huge sword. Curious to see if this design somehow solved that problem.

    I have no problems with the main line predaking after the upgrades. Will have to see final product in combined form before I can really go on this. They do look quite good though

    Wow, loving these designs and having the combined mode\'s hands turn into a crab is genius! I\'m also digging that gigantic sword! I generally quite like Toyworld\'s designs.

    And the crab made with hands looks really really good.

    Gorgeous. Loving that Zoids-esque aesthetic.

    Not sure if I'm in on the set, though. I'm still happy with Feral Rex.

    This set looks like a pass for me, but will wait for the combined mode.

    But I don't want stylized. I want animation accuracy.

    Hard pass. ToyWorld's obsession with CHUGifying MP-scaled toys is off-putting, because that's not what many people are looking for. Their Kup was one of the worst examples of this.
