Directly from the floor at Times Center in New York City, at the Hasbro showroom part of New York Toy Fair 2018, we have a couple of Power of the Prime full reveals at least, as seen in the panel coverage posted here.

In this post, we share his majesty Predaking, the fully combined Predacon team, consisting of the five voyagers Divebomb, Headstrong, Rampage, Tantrum Torox, and team leader Razorclaw. We have a couple of shots from the table, though better galleries will appear later this evening, including close ups of the limbs and the table's surroundings. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Is there something wrong with preds left arm? It looks like it's bent at an odd angle. Any pictures of the Prime master that goes with it?

I don't mind him. He's definitely slimmed down since his G1 days, which makes me wonder if Hasbro is now into body shaming (considering poor Moonracer and her Prime Master gimmick)

Predaking looks great, but where is his sword, he needs his sword.

But it isn't good at all. The individual robots and beasts look like trash, the combined mode is a mess proportionally, there's stickers everywhere because apparently tampographs ain't in the budget anymore, the fingers are inexcusable for that size, and there isn't even a sword.

Generations is dead.

But hey, at least the Studio Series looks good.

After seeing Hasbros official pics of Predaking, I retract my earlier statement.

It looks like they've modelled him on the Kre-O version. And I don't know how they did it, but they've made the individual modes blockier than G1.

The toy does indeed seem to be missing a sword. I suppose it shouldn't be surprising. None of the PotP combiners have had dedicated weapons so far. This may just be the direction Hasbro decided to go.

So is this Onyx exclusive to Predaking or is this our only Onyx and we wont get one with a shell?

I like these, I'd say they're on par with what we've gotten from the rest of Prime Wars. They aren't MPs, we should have always expected beasts just as unarticulated as Alpha Trion. After what Hasbro did to Devastator this feels like an improvement. I do hope Takara Tomy repackages him for Unite Warriors being a Titan (like they did with Trypticon for Legends) and toss in some weapons (like they did for Devastator).

Hmm.

After Devastator, this is pretty much what I expected. I'm not particularly wowed, but I bet King-mode will be solid and fun.

That was a product of the time. If they’re not doing it for any of the power of primes figure they’re not gonna do it for predaking. It’s not happening. If it shares the gimmick of enigmas and primemasters you can guarantee it’ll be in the same box and be the same toy. Just like how it’s been going and just like Trypticon was.

And it's these lack of weapons that will finally push me into getting 3P add-ons.

I'm not really impressed, but I don't hate it. These displays do tend to be inaccurate, so I'm not too worried about small details. He seems like he's too slim, maybe because Razorclaw's torso mode is mistransformed? It seems he got stretched out while the limbs became more compact. I reserve judgment until I see clearer pictures or a video review. I also want to see comparison shots with the other combiners, especially Devy.

Those Predacon altmodes give me actual physical pain.

I try not to make negative posts, but seriously it’s been 34 years, you’d think they could make something other than bricks on sticks.

have to say im not impressed . im looking at my G1 predaking on my desk every day and he's a far beefier affair than this effort.

but even on simple things, wheres the spiked knuckle dusters on his fists?

the display is a dark nightmare of garish colours so maybe its taking away from his look but considering how far engineering has come on TF its sad to say how lack luster these guys look. i mean its essentially the same thing - voyager sized figs that combine - and the ancient one does it better.

im FAR more interested in abominus at this stage (and picking up that studios grimlock figure, christ what a fig THAT is. i keep hearing hound from the G1 cartoon in my head "that ones a walking fang factory!" :) )

more and more im wondering if they missed a trick and shouldnt have made the dinobots the voyager combining fig and gone the deluxe/voyager route with the preds.

ah well least he's coming out for those that didnt get the reissue. i dont want to seem nonplussed, ive bought more figs in the last 2yrs than the last 20.

I've been thinking about this, and I believe - but this is just me thinking as I've been looking at screen all day while on call with people in the US - that this might be the G1 a small lot of fandom has been asking for.. and the team has tipped too far into.

Meaning they effectively look the same as G1, just with maybe a couple more joints? I liked the general look of Devastator more, that also did a similar thing, but this just feels.. eh.

A couple more joints wouldn't explain that waist line though.

Apparently G1 Predaking was too fat for modern day Hasbro body shaming developers.

Predaking looks better than I expected TBH. Not bothered by the torso or wings being so blocky, or the monojointed fingers. What DOES get me is his lack of a sword, or even spiked knuckles, and how compromised the individual beasts are. Was really hyped about this (loved UW devastator, and the inclusion of Onyx Prime worked well with my headcanon), but now the KO 3P version seems like the better package. Not being a child of the 80s, Hasbro’s g1 toy replication just isn’t hitting home for me.
