I would love to see a Primordia series produced by Polygon Animation. Say what you may about Transformers Prime, Robots in Disguise 2015, and even the Godzilla Monster Planet trilogy. At least the transformers and monsters did look cool in those, and I'd love to see the Inhumanoids reimagined in their style.

A spin-off series to TF:PRIME was in the works entitled UNIT:E (https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Unit:E) involving the human cast of the show. Agent Fowler. Jake. Miko. Raf. And Ratchet who stayed behind on Earth at show's end. It was intended as a backdoor pilot to other Hasbro properties like Stretch Armstrong, M.A.S.K., Candyland, and the renamed Inhumanoids, Primordia. Probably would've been animated in the style of the follow up to PRIME, Robots In Disguise. Although I thought the CGI used in Prime would've done an excellent job with Tonrar and the other residents of Primordia.
Image
According to GODZILLA:Rulers of Earth artist Matt Frank. The premise for Primordia, was that the monsters featured, and probably some not featured in the UNIT:E made their presence known due to the threat Tonrar and the others thought humanity presented to the Earth over their abuse of the environment. And rise up to wipe us out.
Frank also stated that one of the main impediments to a long awaited revival of the Inhumanoids stemmed from legal issues. Partially because the parent company of the Inhumanoids, Hasbro, also at the moment the rights to create figures to Marvel Comics' characters. Most notably, the Inhumans.
Image
Which probably Hasbro thought would cause too much confusion among the consumers. Also, apparently Hasbro no longer has the rights to names or characters to the Inhumanoid line. It came up during the controversial run of writer Aubrey Sitterson on G.I. JOE, where he planned to have Metlar and company make their long awaited return. Outlines were approved, but right in the middle of everything, Hasbro told the writer the Inhumanoids couldn't be used do the company no longer having rights to names. So that's why kaiju sized versions of the creatures from third G.I. Joe:ARAH mini series, "Pyramid of Darkness" , the Fatal Fluffies.

Was it revealed then who does have the rights if not Hasbro?

Interesting premise. I wonder how that would correspond with Earth turning out to be Unicron.

Was it revealed then who does have the rights if not Hasbro?

Matt Frank didn't say who maybe had the rights. But it read like that Hasbro had just let the rights to the toy line lapse, and haven't even bothered to renew the copyright. Back in 1999, 2000, something similar had happened with the G.I. JOE line when Hasbro been re-releasing a lot of the classic figures after a couple years of the Real American Hero's absence. Some classic character names like General Hawk, the Baroness, and Roadblock couldn't be used with the new batch of figures. So General Hawk was released as General Tomahawk. Saying on his filecard it another nickname code-name. Roadblock and Baroness' figs were released as total new characters. Double-Blast and Chameleon respectively. When Devil's Due came out with a new Joe mag picking up where the original left off. Hawk was still called Hawk, occasionally with someone using the Tomahawk name. But Roadblock and Baroness still went by their monikers. Hasbro just couldn't make, market any figures with those names until they got the rights issues sorted. Which eventually happened. I also think that's what went on with other evil faction, the Red Shadows. When introduced in the Devil's Due mag, the rights for the characters that were known by some long time Joe, Action Force (British name for the Joe brand). Weren't used, so a new group of villains were created, including new uniforms. It wasn't until a few years later that the classic characters, Black Major, Muton, and classic uniform designs, were brought back as part of a convention exclusive set. Then started showing up in the IDW ,Larry Hama continuation of the Marvel series.

If I did have to speculate if anyone owns the rights to the characters, it would probably be Marvel Entertainment. On some of the prototype card backs for the never released second series of the INHUMANOIDS. Like Tank here, sorry, couldn't find a better image.
Image
The copyright states Inhumanoids were copyrighted under Marvel Comics Entertainment Group. Wouldn't mind seeing if some of the those who worked on the original line knew about this. But looking at the cards for the original set, they were all listed as Hasbro Inc. properties.
Image
Although since Marvel, along with Sunbow, produced the series, commercials, and the short lived comic series. I had always thought they had worked closely with Hasbro on the comics, and series' to their various toy lines, advertising. It wasn't that far out there see the House of Ideas get some mention. Likewise, IDW, has had a similar close relationship in promoting the TRANSFORMERS ,and designs of some the characters.

I'd rather they avoid the pitfall some other studios have made (WB/DC, Universal) and just focus on making good movies first, and then if they're successful bringing them all together in a shared universe.

If the Bumblebee film is anything to come by, that may likely be happening already.

Two videos. The first discussing the copyright issues cockblocking a righteous INHUMANOIDS revival.

Also, a podcast from a group of blokes who work under the moniker, Plastic Fanatics, talk about the Evil Within. But it doesn't really dig into the war between Earth Corps and Metlar's posse until one hour ,and forty-six minutes into the video.

And some cool fan designs of the INHUMANOIDS Hellraptor Studios.

Watched the series on It'sSaturday!, And D'compose is my favorite inhumanoid!

He has a cool, design, cool powers, and I like how he had the best time with a certain potion.

One thing that I had always bugged me since I snagged the Volume 2 DVD. I had previously seen the episodes "Cult of Darkness" and "Negative Polarities" before. But what I didn't know was that both episodes were back to back. I had assumed that there was another episode between the two with D-Compose after consuming Nightcrawler's and Blackthorne's serum that would render him ,and his D-Composed victims immune to the sunlight. Either the formula working temporarily, fighting Earth Corps, damn near winning in a daylight battle, and its effects wearing off. Scorching his smelly hide, and restoring his D-Composed victims back to their old selves. Retreating back beneath the Earth, and seeking revenge on his collaborators for their formula's failure at the courthouse. Or the very least D-Compose testing the potion ,and it not preforming as advertised. Then seeking payback against Mangler and Shore.

Right, I would have loved to see D'compose get a surprise attack on Earth corpsn n the daytime like you said, but we unfortunately just skip over that part, assuming that's how it would go.

Also, I was actually referring to the love potion he was hit with later down the line. :lol:

Dang, my bad. The serum Mangler and Blackthorne Shore teamed up to develop, and the aftermath of the Cult episode are usually at the front of my mind when the show comes up. "Primal Passions", an offbeat, but interesting episode when one comes to think of it. Has a weird Tim Burton quality to it. Especially D-Compose, and Scary Sondra's scenes in D-Compose's ballroom with his orchestra. And Metlar, under the influence of Liquidator's botched serum. Stealing the Statue of Liberty, and bringing her to life. Only for her to turn into Alice Kramdom. And hen peck the Tyrant of the Core. I do feel a bit of sympathy for Tendrill though. Although the other Tendrill was a robot, it was sad to see it go into the acid pools to be destroyed as a distraction so Earth Corps could get the kidnapped Stella Blaze to safety. Tendrill, while quite destructive, and takes quite a bit of enjoyment from said destruction. Seemed like the most innocent of the Inhumanoids. And it came off as a dick move from Earth Corps doing what they did to that robot in front of him.
