Didn't notice this from the BotCon pictures, but Predaking is wielding a gold version of BH Optimus Prime's sword??? That's a neat bonus, compared to just using Razorclaw's sword.

Makes me glad I already got Fort Max and MP Soundwave, but I feel it too, with Metroplex, MP Acid Storm, plus Saint's Row IV, Grand Theft Auto 5, Gran Turismo 6, and even then there's the PS4 and Xbox One.. and the inevitable possibility of an 'MP-13b - Soundblaster.'

Indeed.
Although the one time up-scaling something would've actually been cool they miss a trick.
There's no dealing with these people >:oP

Will he have all the stickers? Like the TT reissue did?

So then there's a proper sword? That gold DAGGER is hardly a sword... :roll:

$120 is still kind of high, but $24 for each piece of a reprinted, brand new 80s toy? :-B I suppose that's not unreasonable! ;;)

This guy seems mad.

Not that I blame him mind you, I feel the same way.

Looks like they went with the shiny gold paint like the last Takara release.

Hopefully he won't be over 195 dollars in The Netherlands.
I really want a nice new Predaking.

I'll pass on this one.
I'va already got the first Takara (yellow) re-issue, and I also own the 2010 version, which looks like this one. The Star Saber he's now issued with is still way too small: I upgraded mine with the Crazy Devy (CDMW-14)sword which is the perfect intimidating size.

If I already had Predaking, in any previous version, I wouldn't see any reason to buy this, especially at that price.

I don't have one, though, and he'd look great in my display case next to the BBTS exclusive Piranacon. But I only paid $40 for Piranacon, so I'm having trouble swallowing the $120 price tag for Predaking. I wonder if they'll end up putting Predaking on clearance a year from now?

Regarding these Platinum figures being online exclusives: it makes it difficult to get them, but the flip side is that they're more likely to appreciate in value. It makes them Collector's Items.

Golden Star Saber? :shock: :???:

Also, Tantrum's new name is "Torox".
