Between the two hardbone missiles sticking out of the dragons mouths and the tail that plugs into the hole in his ass, we could have field day making jokes here. :lol:

Also gotta love the way the reviewer starts off by saying "I left Bumblebee on the shelf because who needs another Bumblebee" and then within minutes he breaks out Bumblebee. :BANG_HEAD:

The figure itself is not bad. One of the better offerings from the TF Prime continuity. If they do a Hun-Grrr repaint I would buy it.

Hm. Okay, that's actually surprisingly cool, aside from the funky hands. None of the photos so far have showed him with those black shoulder spikes out, and they really help the look. I'm sorta considering him now. Kinda makes me wanna go back and get Cybertron Scourge, too.

Again, like beast hunters prime, the robot mode is giving me old school Japanese robot vibes.

Its Pretty nice, ill be waiting for the leader class or whatever they will release before I decide which to get. Not a fan of animals but I am a big fan of the prime line and show so he'll be a must have character. One thing they can't seem to get right with the prime line are the weapons. Smokescreen's gun looks like a butterfly...

Predaking's guns are frickin dragon heads and are pretty cool in the toy's context. However, though I was never a fan of the translucent missiles hastak usually use, this figure is crying out for bright orange or red ones.

Looks good, even better than the initial pics indicated. I will be happy to have this monster on my shelf :).

If you're an on-screen completest, you'll also want Smokescreen.

Ain't that the truth. #-o Quite the fail that they didn't do that.

I've got mixed feelings about this one. It looks pretty good in both modes. The colours, size and design all really appeal to me, and it's got a cool transformation for a beast even if the front legs do fall into the usual 'extend 'n' twist' category.

It does lack in other areas though. The way the dragon head attaches is a bit cheap, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's a result of safety laws. I think the figure could've done with some proper robot hands too. Folding the dragon claws together doesn't appear to make a firm enough grip. Also not a fan of how the tail folds onto the robot back. It looks good, but I don't like the adhoc way it's fixed in place. I'd be worried about any rubbing that occurs to the dragon head.

I could see myself paying for this fella. :roll:
