    Felisaber is no more a member of the Predacons, than Shockwave is a member of the Combaticons. Sure, you can physically attach them on to the combined mode, but they're really not part of the team...

    Felisaber is also optional. And yeah, Cang is too much for me. Too big, too stylized, too much $$$, doesn't really go with anything in my collection.

    Wish someone would make a height upgrade for the original feral rex. Something similar to the Gravity Builder height upgrade (between the thighs and leg bots) or like the Poseidon height upgrade (between the leg bot and the feet).

    It's not fake! Maybe the word you are looking for is "non canon". I don't mind additional members, because I don't care about the Transformer characters, only the engineering and the appearance. If the gorilla looks cool and blends in perfectly with the other members, then it’s fine by me.

    Feral Rex needs a new torso, Leo Dux it's just too small for a team leader bot.

    Yeah, the argument is actually partsforming pieces vs additional, non-canon members.

    It's pretty obvious to me that a new member would have more play value and be more interesting than a partsforming piece.

    The giant hunk of non-transforming plastic isn't canon either. Don't know how people seem to miss that...

    Oh well, people are weird.

    Non-canon would be fake.

    Fuck fake members.

    Fake pants for Predaking other than Feral Rex!

    Sometimes canon is fun, and if it means that ugly as Hell Cang's Toys Predaking is non-canonical, well, I'm down then.

    I take the fake pants for feral rex.

    No luck finding 3d printed parts for torso upgrade either

    For me, I simply can't stand CangToys' aesthetic when it comes to the entire Combiner. Too many parts and colours all splashed together. Makes it really hard to focus and read the silhouette. Individually, the members look pretty slick. But there's just too much going on with Predaking himself, even without getting into the overcomplicating of things with extra team members and crab hands and whatever.

    I got mine off a forum member last year for just over $200 for the core team of 5. I then ordered the neoart version of felsaber to go with my Autobots. So I ended up with all 6 for under $300.

    I got my set off eBay last year. $275 shipped with Felisaber included. Keep your eyes on the b/s/t section and eBay because I’m sure more will pop up

    Contacted MMC on FB to see if their interested in a Leo Dux (razor claw) 2.0 with parts forming to achieve 18” and up.

    Maybe it might become a kickstarter or something.

    I was unable to submit questions on their website in the Contact section.

    I highly doubt it, MMC wouldn't fall as low to use pantsforming... their are too proud of their "all in one" line.

    Please could someone wise help with these pieces that were loose in some of the Feral Rex boxes?

    I assume they're extras or replacements or something, but there's no mention of them in the booklets. What are they for?

    These other bits came with a helpful sheet saying what they were, so they're okay:

    The crotch is a replacement for Bovis.
