    Don’t get me wrong, it looks so cool, and I can’t wait to see pictures of it in people’s collections. It’s just not something that would fit in my G1 MP Collection

    I would consider it a esthetically, but probably will be outside my budget for something I'm not that passionate about.

    I’d love FT to tackle this. I do really like the way that episode was animated. Always thought it was one of the better presented episodes and I really enjoyed the story line too.

    Cang Toys is way beyond my tastes but “call of the primitives” is how I always view Predaking and the individual members.

    I’m interested to see this develop.

    Been searching and searching but can’t find it online anywhere but I’m sure there was a grey render design of the Preds that looked very much like an early FT design. I’d love to see them have a go. I feel like something like Preds or Technos would spark a little more interest back into 3PMP.

    CangToys is a taste in itself, but having the complete set of their Predacons and their first Dinobot, I think they look awesome on any shelf.

    Well there hasn’t been a single update since it was revealed 5 years ago so I wouldn’t hold your breath

    Oh I don't expect it to be made at all now since Zeta technically doesn't exist.

    Personally, I can say that making Predaking combiner as sturdy and solid as Gang Toys is a challenge for every company that tries to design that character. Gang Toys’ version has awesome presence.

    I would love FT's take on the Predacons.

    Via the TFWiki page for Masami Obari~

    It was once speculated that Ōbari had directed the full episode "Call of the Primitives".[5] However, Ōbari was asked on Twitter regarding the episode and he himself did not know! This led to animator Eiji Suganuma chiming in[6] to say that in fact he was the animation director for the episode and to explain that the money shot of the combined Predaking was animated by Shin Matsuo (a different Studio OX artist).​

    So, Studio Ox's and FlameToys' proposed Predaking are perfectly GeeWun, and it's hard to say that many episodes were better animated than Call of the Primatives.

    I'd be inclined to agree except some people are saying it's just gonna be a non-transforming figure and not a combiner with individuals who transform. I hope they're wrong.

    For Cang Toys I love their Tantrum and Headstrong. They're perfect. And I don't even mind the gorilla guy, he's pretty cool. But the colors for Rampage and Divebomb are off, their Razorclaw is just way too busy and looks like the big bad from "Edge of Tomorrow" and I hate bots with claw feet, which they gave both Razorclaw and Divebomb.

    Looking at the pictures non-transforming was my first impression, however if that was the case why not just release it under the Flame Toys line instead of including it in this new line? I admit I didn't really look into the new line, but the impression I got was that it is supposed to be Flame Toys but it transforms.

    I too was under the impression it transforms.

    If FT went head to head with this, they’d probably just box it in one of these…
