I maintain that it should've been a hippo. Hippos are fierce, even if they're not technically predators.

Hippos eat fish, not just grass and stuff, so yeah, they're predators :D!

I totally think it should be a platypus though. Definitely a platypus :P.

Another tiger is kinda disappointing. And a sabertooth tiger kinda breaks the theme since it's a prehistoric predator. Although there's not much to do with official characetrs we have.

Gnaw was classified in the same group in Japan, so maybe ... a shark that looks nothing like him?

Well, he's optional, so he can just sit by himself in a corner.

If it makes you feel better, there's technically no such thing as a saber-toothed tiger. Prehistoric saber-toothed cats aren't closely related to any modern species of cat, being instead a separate subfamily of Felidae along with the two subfamilies of cats that now exist. So a saber-toothed cat would be less related to either Razorclaw or Rampage than the two are to each other, as far as their relative locations in the animal kingdom. Granted, it's a retool of Rampage, so the biological differences between a saber-toothed cat and a modern tiger might not be well-reflected, but one can hope.

So that is 2 limbs preordered and I didnt even want a predaking! This looks too good to pass up. Very glad that the sixth member is optional, i just hope he isnt released in a 2 pack so we have to get him. :D

MMC's better than that. They get that not everybody is going to want this new guy, they wouldn't pull a dirty trick like that. If they did, they'd lose credibility.

I deserved that! Somehow that little (rather important) detail slipped my mind when I made that post.

This strengthens the case for a hippo. Damn, now I'm going to be fantasizing about what could have been.

It probably wouldn't be too hard to sculpt a new hippo head for Tantrum. Of course, then Predaking might have 3 legs and one arm...

I agree with you on the Hippo idea. Those things are vicious. They may not be predators, but they will indiscriminately kill anything that enters there territory.

Yep, I've heard they're so aggressive that they cause more deaths in Africa than lions, rhinos, snakes and elephants combined. I think a hippo would make an excellent Predacon, yeeessss.

hippos also mark their territory by launching explosive shit out and then spinning their tail thus resulting in a wide area being covered in hippo shit. this would make a great weapon gimmick ala armada megatron's ultimate weapon attack.

I've also seen a Hippo steal a Zebra carcass from a Croc and ate it. Saw it on the Discovery Channel. Can't seem to find the clip but here is another clip form youtube. It's not as clear cause in the discovery I saw the Hippo swallow it whole...

Think HIPPO would be a great choice indeed.
