Seibertron.com member mattj972 notified us that Amazon has sale on the shared exclusive Platinum Edition Predaking (G1 reissue) for an amazing $49.99 and it ships free, even without Amazon's Prime service! At this price, there's a chance it could sell out, so if you're on the fence, the time to act is now.

Here's what matt had to say:

I love Seibertron and have been coming here for many years - but as awesome as it is to see the news and time frame for new figures - NOTHING beats news of a deal this good on such an awesome figure.

Thank you!

I emailed the news crew with this story over an hour ago, but it looks like Matt must have emailed them earlier than I did!

Snagged mine. I figure that this is an unbeatable price....correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the individual Predacons were around $15 in 1986. Today, they would cost around $100 brand new, in 2013 money. This sale is like getting them half off in the 80s!

Crap, I have some holiday shipping to do and I'm waiting for the new Deluxes to come in from BBTS or I would jump on these, then again I have the first Takara reissue.

That is insane! One of the few times I wish I didn't have the Takara version only so I could take advantage of such a good deal. Oh well, I've been enjoying mine for a couple years now so I've had my money's worth. :) Awesome news for anyone looking to get this still and I highly recommend it to those on the fence.

I was thinking the same thing ... until I found out Predaking comes with an extra sword. A goldish/brown colored version of Beast Hunters Optimus Prime's sword comes with this set. That was all I needed to know to sell me on this set. I just found out a few weeks ago that it came with this. Glad I waited for once to get a figure. :D

This is likely a clearance/inventory blow out and the last time it will be available at or under retail. Just a theory.

At any rate - big thanks for the heads up!

Ive bought one. I hope the box is in good condition when it arrives. Was on the fence but at that price you'd be daft not to

Where was this 2 years ago when I bought a vintage G1 Predaking for $125 and spent another $100 on swords/guns ??? :-(

F**k it, I guess I got a good deal at the time. Feral Rex is coming !

This is not True. it is only that price if you apply for and get a credit card.

Shows $79.99 as of (8:30am MNT). If I apply for a CC they'll take $20.00. Another missed opportunity for me, I guess.

^^ It was true, the deal's just over.

I was waiting for this kind of deal for this toy. Jumped on it last night. Can't wait to get it, $50 for a G1 Predaking is unfathomably cheap, I mean, that's gotta be less than 1980's retail. The new deco and new accessory helps too, I can put it on my ehobby/etc shelf.

That's the price I was waiting for, but I missed the opportunity. I'm still hopeful it will end up at that same price on BBTS eventually.

I ordered mine this morning around 6:00am and it went thru at $49.99 without any kind of CC application.

It bounced from 49.99 back up to 79.99 about 5 hours ago :-(

Awesome price. I also had a $10 giftcard for Amazon so I got it for $39.99. It's going to be great having G1 Predaking on my shelf for much less than I ever expected to pay for it.

I remember paying a whole lot more for Predaking. But at that price- REVEL IN HIS GLORY WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

$79.99 is still a good deal.

That was his black friday/lightning deal price as opposed to $120 msrp.

$49.99 was awesome deal, but you're right the $79.99 is still a great deal.

Good news for those who did not get it when it was over $100 this is why now I don't preorder my tf figures like before, they all go on clearance any way.... :twisted: canceling more preorder right now.

Opened mine up and I was shocked to realize that the peghole for Predaking's right arm (Rampage) is too wide and thus cannot create a secure connection. Thankfully Amazon has a great return/exchange policy and I was fortunate enough to secure another Predaking. Now I hope that this one doesn't have the same issue.

Anyone else experience anything similar with this iteration of the mold?
