    I would be pleaseantly surprised if they snuck a hound reissue/ or Cliffjumper in the mix underneath the leakers nose.

    Also hope via interview or panel they shoe some commitment to some more Masterforce character. Its kind of obvious between Raiden, Ginrai, and Metalhawk talk, Ono want to dip into Masterforce, which I hope would result in more releases, kind of hard to serve multiple masters and not completely miff the G1 people off. Predaking sounds great but I think Id rather have the 5 different G1 molds

    Predaking is the only other combiner than Devastator that had the "MP height" treatment, so popularity should be strong (i was hoping a Bruticus, but i'm ok with Predaking too).
    I'm very curious about the Sunbow combiner height, they doesn't have alt mode limits, height limits (Raiden scales well with actual and future JG1 super mode, so there is a trend) and physically 5 starscream combined can't do a figure in 30 cm, unless it have the X-Men Juggernaut proportions.

    I don’t think the Aerialbots will be seeker size in alt mode or bot mode. I just don’t see that happening. They will most likely be around trainbot height in bot mode and whatever size jet they can get out of that. Superion will most likely be 30cm.

    I hope to be very wrong on this! But at this point that’s what I think will happen.

    Were the Aerialbots around carbot size in the cartoon? Somewhere between Prowl and Ironhide with Silverbolt being closer to Optimus Prime, right? Same with the Stunticons? I know the figures were significantly smaller. I haven’t handled or owned them in a long time, but I saw a scramble city limb at a toy show recently and couldn’t believe how small it was. My memory has failed me after all these years! Haha I’ve had other people look at my G1 collection though and say “I thought they were bigger?” Nope, you were just smaller!

    They have followed scale since MP-10 (trainbots include), why they should shrink the combiners components now?

    A full combiner should be 50-55cm or 20-22 inches IMO. I did think Raiden was a bit small as a combiner, while also having the individual guys scaled correctly. Its gotta be tough to do on their end.

    Raiden IS small as combiner, but thinking when the dust settles, it's in scale with the past and the future JG1 super mode robot, while the core JG1 robots and Raiden components keeps a sunbow compatible scale.
    Nobody expects a 50 cm combiner with no serious partforming, but a 40 cm one is perfectly doable. Maybe Predaking could exploit more partforming just because components are 5 in Starscream height, but who knows.
    Anyway, Sunbow height are 6m for combiner leaders, 5m for components.

    It actually makes more sense to scale Predaking with Raiden since they appeared in the same show and are canonically the same size than scaling Raiden to Star Saber, but the knly thing we can do for now is wait and see what is coming after Super Ginrai.

    Feral Rex was about 13 inches, so its possible, the question would be how big the animals would be. Smaller than Dinobots size, but bigger than insecticons? Dinobot core body size with longer legs or as long as Tigatron. Unfortunately we dont have much frame of reference. Maybe make Razorclaw a bit wider than the leg bots, so he's a wide enough torso to make a proper waist and prevent them from getting in the way of the other. I think they have to do a better job with articulation, than with Raiden.

    From TFSource:

    Is this an overscaled version? With a 7.2" component, the height is encouraging.

    If the listing is for MMC Feral Rex than the combined mode height is inaccurate, 18 inches is the height of Potp Predaking and Feral Rex is much shorter. There is a 18 inches os ko but it has individual bots over 9 inches tall.

    So a 20cm Predacons with a 40cm Predaking could be doable, we will see.

    I dont remember feral rex being that big. Skyfire is tops on what I can fit on my shelving and when I had him, I'm pretty sure he fit.

    In other news looks missing link c-04 CJ wont be licensed while c-03 Bee will

    This could explain the "Missing Mp". Porsche probably doesn't want to license chibi alt-mode.

    If this is Takara's MP CJ, I guess I'll have to hunt down a 3P.
    That thing looks hideous.

    MP Jazz (not this ml crap) best be in the immediate future then, Takara o_O

    ss86 Jazz is also not licensed but very clearly a Porsche, and not chibi in any way.
