    I found this video a few days ago, don't think I've seen it posted here before:


    And that youtuber also seems to be one of the first persons to get a copy of IF Eris, as they have a stopmotion video of her now, too.

    Does anyone have a dimension comparison between the official and the ko? Specifically wondering about the different sword (combiner sword) sizes.

    The KO sword is oversized even for the oversized combiner. The handle itself fits in my hand like a real handle it's that big. I really can't understand why Jinbao or whomever chose to make the swords and heads especially oversized above the upsizing of the rest of the mold.

    It's cartoonishly too big. More appropriate for something the size of UNICRON.

    How long is the sword? I found one and they said the sword is 60cm. Is that official or the KO?

    The real sword is right around 39-40cm.

    I got my MMC feral rex set on Friday, the original one from MMC. A very nice set. In terms of color, they are very different from the other Decepticons. I still set up the five Predacons in botmode. I like the botmode much more. Here is a pic of how they look compared to other masterpieces.

    Because those look like over-stylized straight trash.

    Some people prefer the Predacons to not have a mandatory maximal monkey added to the team.

    I can think of a few reasons:
    1: Price point, you can get Feral Rex for the price of 2 Cang members
    2: Design preference, while MMC is reformatted it does just look like hulked out versions of the G1 where Cang is hyper-stylized
    3: Still have yet to see the entire Cang team
    4: Rumors of stupid monkey pants with cang toys

    Those are just the easy off the top of my head reasons.

    Feral Rex is still the King in my collection and squares off perfectly against Commander Class Sky Lynx.

    I like this G1 style of the MMC Predacons. Cang Toys looks way too modern to me.

    The six member is there to help Razorclaw to bulk the torso and achieve +50 cm without making Razorclaw gigantic or relying to disgusting fake torsos. The gorilla would be a nice addition to the Predacons imo.

    They are hyper stylized... Not a bad thing, but that might not vibe with everybody, but they are the coolest Predacon team so far.

    It would be funny if these people are not OK with a sixth Predacon Member, but are fine with pantsforming combiners, cos basically you can keep the monkey in pants mode forever and treat it like it's just a pair of pants, and no one will be any wiser.

    You're okay with a fake sixth member but not fake parts? Alright. I'd rather have fake parts than a fake member. It's the same reason why MMC's Felisaber has never been combined with my Feral Rex.

    I'd be wiser, and it'd feel wrong. Like cheating on your wife/husband bad.
