Armed with the ancient weapons of the Primes, Optimus Prime unleashes a savage new beast-tracker vehicle mode to defeat the mighty Predaking. Predacons will wish they had never heard of Optimus Prime when you bring this figure to the fight. This mighty Autobot figure has a new beast-tracker vehicle mode. When he's in truck mode, he'll dust his enemies with his firing cannon. In robot mode, his powerful Nexus Sword and Vector Shield will make him invincible in hand-to-hand combat. Whatever mode he's in, no Predacon will be able to match your Optimus Prime figure's might. Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

Predaking readies his battle-hungry Predacon forces for an attack he hopes will finish the Autobots once and for all. Autobots will wish they had never heard of Predaking when you bring this figure to the fight. This mighty Predacon figure has a brand new plan for taking on the Autobots (other figures sold separately). He's a scary dragon in beast mode, and his tail becomes his powerful Infernum Sword in robot mode. Will any Autobot be able to survive his firing missile-blast assault? Whatever mode he's in, your Predaking figure is a danger to any Autobot. Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

Predaking looks better and better with every new picture.

Predaking bot mode looks good, but dragon legs look really pitiful. No knees makes it look like one of those monster horses from Harry Potter.

Are these replacing the previous versions? There is nothing that I can see that says to unknowing parents that these are are lower spec versions of the figures their kids may be wanting.

Well, the bio is accurate. I know I wish I had never heard of Optimus Prime when I look at THIS figure....

I'm interested in Predaking.

You can never have too many giant transforming dragons IMO.

With the deco, size and transform variations, they will all be different characters on my shelf.

I like how Predaking looks, not so much for Optimus Prime.

The beastmode photo of Predaking shows the front legs mistransformed. They should be turned around so that the hollow bits aren't showing to the sides of the toy.

your actually surprised at this, this is hasbro afterall. The point of these is to make them more money while spending less not help us the consumer out by giving us a quality product for a reasonable price.


The answer is simple. Don't buy any of this crap.


Precisely.

I'm sorry, these are what the parents and the kids want. Transformers that both can transformer, and limbs that don't easily pop off.

You'll notice the deluxe bumblebee had ratcheting leg joints - not too many deluxes these days same to have anything but ball joints.

They're also bigger than normal Voyagers. Look at how they fill the package! That said, Optimus is really ugly. Predaking I don't mind. I do like how he's translucent, but those hollow arms are a bit of a pain. Hopefully you can also do something about his dragon head in robot mode, leaving it sticking out like a tail seems a little strange. Even if you could just lift it and lie it against his back, it'd be a big improvement.

Predaking actually does look pretty cool. If I was interested in the character, this is probably the version I would get.

But that Prime is horrible, and I can only hope this simplification doesn't carry over into the Generations line.

Again, it will not. Hasbro has confirmed Generations will be exempt from the simplication.

Predaking's front legs are twisted backwards in dragon mode, which makes his "feet" (the robot hands, actually) look terrible mangled.

It's also possible that they made the packaging smaller to make the figures LOOK bigger and/or to save on distribution costs (by fitting more in the same size case).

Optimus Prime still looks ugly as crap. Not even worth examination at a store.

Hate to admit, but Predaking is growing more and more attractive to me. Not to say that I'll actually get him, but it sure looks better than the original Voyager. >:oP

That could indeed be a possibility if Hasbro didn't already tell us that all the simplified figures (Deluxe as well) are indeed bigger than normal.

Gotta admit, that Predaking looks pretty cool, maybe when it drops to 15 I might pick it up as a novelty.

Is Prime gonna barf? So much green........

It appears Prime's stomach spikes have been retooled to better hide his robot junk in vehicle mode. It also seems that they have improved the ascetic of the wheels, painted his hands, and increased the feet size. They have fixed my main gripes with the mold. :D The green is growing on me, but why a mouthed face? :-?

Predaking seems to have a dragon head and neck sticking out of his ass. I pray to primus he is mistransformered. :BANG_HEAD:

You know what would be cool? That optimus in orange, blue and grey as an homage to Beast Wars Optimal Optimus... and maybe Predaking in red as Transmetal II Megatron.

Nice! I wasn´t sure if Predaking would look cool as Megatron, but that custome looks awesome! I guess Optimal Optimus would look great as well.

Did somebody think the first voyagers were too difficult? All the BH figures are painfully simplified as it is. To make it any simpler you'd have to go back to the Beast Wars basic flip changers.

For young children I can definitely see how they could be if only because of the number of steps involved and the amount of more complex transformation bits and small panels and pieces that have to be moved around (I can't see a kid figuring out how to transform the original voyager Predaking at all, especially with the way its tail and legs convert between modes, being asymmetrical and all). Optimus wasn't so bad, but the Cyberverse figure is definitely simpler since there's no need to rotate bits around his waste 360 and such.

I recently purchased my five year old cousin Beast Hunters Optimus Prime as an upgrade from the more simple Rescue Bots and other transformable toys from Vtech. He found it very difficult to convert it and I found myself often having to do it for him. There is a rather large gap between rescue bots and more contemporary figures. Smaller children also like large toys. I think that these molds will be a good transition between the two. I anticipate unique molds in the future an May pick them up out of interest. ;)
