Big Bad Dragon! A very cool version of Predaking from transformers beast hunters. Fantastic size and fun play pattern.
The weakest part of predaking is the lack of articulation in the dragon head and/or lack or a locking mechanism, Otherwise articulation is beast mode is fine. With a massive wingspan he is quite imposing.
Predaking has some really nice paint apps (see his thighs) but a lot of lacking areas too. Many moulded details are lost due to lack of paint.The budget has gone the the wings with I suppose is a required evil. He also has a bunch of cybertronian runes scattered all over him which is a really nice touch.
Articulation and robot mode is fairly good and mostly kibble free.
I do recommend this figure as the beast Predaking mold out at the moment.

Robot mode is looking better than expected but I could never get past the blocky, rigid, ugly beast mode.

Thought about skipping over Beast Hunters anyway. Be better for me to invest in the Thrilling 30, since that's going to be the highlight of the year for me.

This guy is awesome, and beats the pants off the Voyager version IMHO. I was planning on picking this one up at some point, but after seeing it in hand I'm actually excited about it now!
I can forgive the few issues with the beast mode, especially given that he's going to remain in bot mode for eternity. And what a bot mode it is! It really seems to address all the complaints I had about the Voyager, both in scale and function. And ratchets...so many lovely ratchets!

I'll be getting him because he's much more imposing than his voyager-sized clone.

He seems to suffer the same probs as many other four legged beast modes (blocked limbs, obvious transformation), but at his size I'd have hoped that the neck and tail were extremely posable. This guy has flaws but if I were to complete my prime collection I'd get this guy and voyager prime. The scale is awesome...
