Yeah, I'm finding myself starting to lean towards MMC at this point.

I'm getting this. I have and love Giant and Crossfire Bruticus & Superion and that's the scale I'm sticking with. I just wish it wasn't coming out at the same time as FP Menasor. That comes first so this'll have to wait.

I watched it. Valid points, issues, and concerns.

Still getting it. It's the Predaking I want for my Classics collection.

Divebomb Arm mode looks kind of skinny, but this looks pretty good overall. I really hope quality is good for the rest of these guys for everyone getting this. I myself am getting the MMC version. Can't wait for everything to be out and the comparison discussions to begin!

Weapon: Gatling Cannon
Looks like they fixed the shoulder cannons.

That goes a long way to fixing the combined mode for this guy, but overall I still think MMC has the better design.

Predaking, IMO, should TOWER over other bots, including other combiners. The bots themselves also seem to have a lot less detail than the MMC offerings.

If this size class works for you, it appears you will be getting a pretty good looking Predaking. And thus far, I do like the bot and alt modes for these.

I wish these guys well.
I, for one, would rather see another Herc/Giant contest rather than MMC just blowing them out of the water.
For Sale:

That honestly looks pretty cool. Better than War Hawk, definitely. I'd buy it if I weren't committed to Feral Rex. Maybe if the price drops and I have money to burn, I'll get these guys.

Really good looking Rampage, I've gotta say. However, I'm almost certain MMC's Rampage will outshine this figure. Still not bad though, if I couldn't afford MMC's Predacons this set would be a great runner-up.

as before, I think these are nice looking, but maybe still a tad over-priced given the size (and untested nature of the company producing them) and given the competition, I worry for their performance.

Without MMC's I reckon they'd be doing great business from people wanting a Classics Predaking. Honestly, these designs are more G1, but with enough updated articulation that people would normally be all over them. I'd like to see more from the company, despite me (mostly) passing on them. Still considering their Tantrum for a Stampede custom.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

"Dear customer,
Here we have received a sample of Unique Toys UT-W02 War Rhino (Ironhead).
After inspecting the sample, the quality is much improved than War hawk. It come with better articulation and better paint job.
The sword will be painted in gold colour.
Unique Toys is still modifying the mold to perfection.
Final product prototype photos will be updated soon.

The coloured version makes it look really cheap and nasty. The LEDs in the feet/cannons is a nice touch, maybe not in green tho. Purple would suit it much better.

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
So, this picture really cements the idea that these guys are really just more articulated versions of the original toys. I would be more excited for these guys if a). I didn't spend so much on the Crazy Devy upgrades and b). didn't know about MMC's Ferocicons. What's nice is that UT is taking a more hands-on approach to Quality Control and hopefully this guy is a better product than War Hawk. I still feel bad for those who already have War Hawk, with the paint quality being sub-par or any other plastic issues. Does this get addressed in future releases of War Hawk? And what happens with the early adopters, are they just screwed?

Also, why green paint and lights for the feet? It doesn't fit in the Predacons' color scheme and just clashes with everything.

If there was ever a possibility that I pick these guys up someway down the line, it feels like that is less likely after seeing these pictures.
