    I love coming back to this thread to see some new revelation has shaken the collective collectors and split them right down the middle, even if it was talked about as far back as five months ago. I don't mind ditching the shooty shoes if they will actually serve a purpose outside of the gestalt. It's a nice change of pace to not have a bunch of loose parts to deal with, or in a few cases the inverted shells of combiner parts that make absurd and unwieldy weapons. I look forward to seeing what more they reveal in the coming days, especially in regards to the stability of the combined form.

    As much as I loved Predaking as a kid, I always thought his head and feet looked stupid. So I, for one, am very glad that CT are trying something different while still calling back to elements of the original and am looking forward to seeing how they all look together.

    The great thing for me is, I dig the robot and beast modes so much, I don't really care if I like the combined mode. So, as far as I'm concerned, this looks great and nothing that's been shown so far has convinced me of anything other than this is going to be one amazing set.

    I love the recolor, but my impression was that the wolf’s eyes are the parallelogram-shaped elements above the teeth, closer to the Decepticon insignia. The red that you painted (assumedly to indicate the eye) is what I thought was just a random structural detail.

    Oh hell. With that, you may have just ruined my perspective on this entire set.

    Cang toys has stated the wolf will be 19cm tall, so definitely larger than deluxe sized.
    Awesome bash, BTW!

    No, you are absolutely right about that. That should look like this:

    That... is friggin' awesome. But now I'm going to call you an absolute, weapons-grade bastard for making me want something that will never exist. Damn your eyes, sir!

    I'm not even mad. Like if they did these colors for the feet, I think I'd be totally fine with putting them on this combiner. Time will tell though.

    Any chance you could do Carnivac colours? MMC added Catilla to their set, so a Pretender Beast is not unprecedented.

    What a beautiful terrific thing.
    I 100% prefer this wolf design / colors than the classical Fanstoys one. More savage, more agressive. All their beasts designs are incredible. I think CT could do a very good alternative to the beast decepticons headmasters.
    It's time to do a real rebirth guys.

    ...Well, I'm not getting this set, but I guess I'm getting one half of the torso just for the figure that becomes the foot. Guess I'll have to decide between Primal and Razorclaw.

    Looks more like a Zoids Liger than proper Predacon Rampage.
