Looking forward for Predaking to warm some shelves and go on sale. I was really looking forward for this version but now, meh. Back legs look terrible and he doesn't even have his 2 other dragon heads. Robot mode looks sexy as hell though. Much better than the voyager version.

I think the next Optimus Prime toy to come out will have him transform into a motorcycle. It will come with a base that transforms into a huge water tank and jump ramp with a huge great white shark swimming in it.

Predaking looks like he's missing part of his upper jaw in dragon mode...

I already have the Voyager version, and this looks like it's practically the same figure, just upscaled. The Voyager is good enough for me. I'll pass on this.



Like you said. I mean, the voyager's vehicle mode is awesome, but THIS... It's just a mess! The robot is cool enough and the wheel on the back make me think about some Japanese deity.

How big will this thing be? No matter, I may buy it but only on clearance.
Predaking is not too bad but I may buy him on clearance too.

My exitment is all for the upcoming METROPLEX. Now THAT'S a ULTIMATE class transformers that truly deserves the title.

easy pass, the voyager is far superior compared to this. Only thing this has over the voyager is more solid colors, but id rather spend $20 on the voyager and paint it than spend what ever absurd price for this and have a half assed figure that looks like crap. Bigger isnt always better and this is proof.

The voyager Predaking is clearly better. Kind of a let down for this figure. Now Im only looking forward to that huge Metroplex, Mp-Prowl and Mp-Smokescreen.

The only thing I don't like about this is that he seems to be lacking just a little more color in some areas. Particularly the yellow on his legs. I would rather have had his thighs been grey/silver instead of that orange. And I hope those wings raise higher, because that kinda sucks.

These are clearly the new Weaponisers...huge figures with electronics but abysmal transformations and sad design flaws. Buying them would be regrettable.

These are Ultimate class figures, twice as expensive as and much bigger than Weaponizers.

I know that...but I mean in terms of them being way bigger and priceier and yet far less complex and well-engineered than their smaller counterparts

On the bright side, the money I save from not buying this will go to my Generations fund from Springer and Blitzwing.

I'm intrigued by this so called "light up fire breath" gimmick, and how they will pull it off.

Years ago (before they lost their originality and innovation and became strictly established license based) MegaBloks raised the bar for this kind of thing in their Dragons Fire and Ice line by having one of the dragon figures spew atomized water mist from its mouth which was backlit by a superbright yellow led. The effect was startlingly cool in that it really looked like hot plasma smoke spewing out. Ah, MegaBloks of old.... :-(

More than likely though, the Predaking gimmick will consist of nothing more than a poorly lit plume-shaped translucent "missile" that jams in between the jaws and drops out (rather than shooting out)when a button is pressed.

Glad to see that this version seems to have proper hands. The crappy rubbery claw thingees the Voyager sports are terrible and can't even hold the tail sword properly without it falling off.

Really looking forward to getting this guy in hand.
Its been a test of will walking by the Voyager edition each time i go to the store.
Now my patience seems to be vindicated and am waiting until this guy can be purchased.

Well, yes and no guys...Watch the trailer again. Predakings top mandible is set back creating an underbite of sorts... Whats missing are the "Predator-esque" side pieces that flare out.

Yawn, stand up to transform figures don't interest me. It must be fairly easy to create these four legged beast bots as they all transform in the same way, saves the company money in development.

The new Prime looks awful in alt mode, bot mode is ok though. Its a huge come down from the previous Prime figure.

I'm actually glad I got the Voyager version. This one's bigger, but I like the look of the Voyager better. I really don't like those big fat hinds legs. At $20, the Voyager's a better choice, IMO.

From watching the new eps, Predaking is huge, twice the size of Megatron huge. I might have to reconsider on this version.

After looking at the pictures of Predaking for a couple of days now he is becoming less of a let down. Those drangon back legs look like they dont have much movement but his robot mode looks alrit.

Lets just see if he has at least average articulation in robot mode and I might buy him. I really need a big bad beast guy to go against my beloved Air attack Optimus Primal cause my Unicron is to big for Primal to go against :-)

And him being a big Dragon is a plus.

with that tail whip thing, the wings and the thunder legs......it looks like Epyon to me but the voyager class doesn't.
And Op looks like the providence gundam.

Hmm.... You make me want them. Curse you. :-x

I find it ludicrous that this version of Predaking doesn't share the same brilliant transformation as the voyager class figure. I find myself torn when the decision initially appeared so easy.

Ultimate Optimus is once again not so "Ultimate" in my opinion. That presence of the fake belly moustache in vehicle mode doesn't even match the CGI model. Oversized. Cheap weapon gimmick. Stupid proportions. Sucky looking posability. Another swing 'n' a miss! I'll take the voyager, please.
