Thanks to Poweredconvoy over at TFW2005, we have some new in hand images of the China Exclusive Power of the Primes Predaking Sword!

As you may remember, this sword was an exclusive offered on Single's Day in China, which was November 11 and is the equivalent of Black Friday. The sword was only available with the purchase of a full Predaking figure on Single's Day.

Poweredconvoy reports that the sword holds the unique function of splitting apart and becoming a pen in addition to being the might Beast Combiners's sword. What is also noted is that the sword is made of a not overly impressive soft plastic that is also slightly off color from Predaking himself, a minor disappointment after the promo images showed the colors being in shade with each other.

Check out his photos below, and let us know what you think of this sword in the comments section below!

Uh, it's the same unmatched color it was in the promo pic which really turned me off the first time we saw it.

The sword reminds me of the ones that came with those Optimus Prime KOs you could find at Big Lots.

I would guess the soft plastic is to accommodate the pen gimmick.

If they were going with soft plastic they could have made it dark gold with no trouble. Heck, even harder plastic could pull it off if it was the right type of gold.

It may not be perfect, but IMO it's nice for a free extra, the colors are close enough to look okay, and even if you don't like it for Predaking, it could easily be sufficient for another combiner or large transformer in need of a weapon, or as an oversized blade for someone smaller. I kinda hope these become easily available so I can have one if/when I'm able to buy myself a Predaking.

Does it look like a Nerf sword to anyone else?

If that's the case, I'm just going to equip my Predaking with a Bic. :lol:

There is a SNL "Celebrity Jeopardy" Joke in there, that isn't appropriate for this forum, but if you are a fan of that sort of thing, google it.

Also...Predaking's a BIG BOT and deserves a BIG pen...

Got mine today. Felt silly when I realized none of the photos I remember seeing properly extended his arms. The change in articulation and proportions improves him greatly.

Is that actually in the instructions?

No the instructions all show that the *official* way, is the short arm way, which is kind of silly. 8-}

Indeed. I think with the arms unextended the wrists hold together more securely, but the tradeoff is definitely worth it IMO.

I didn't look at the instructions and just assumed the arms extended was correct based on the smaller combiners.

It is accurate to the original toy, in both instances: Scramble City arms have them extended, but Predaking has them retracted.

The exception to Scramble City arms being extended is when attached to Motormaster because of how short his torso mode is.

Edit: Groove is also an exception because he does not extend. Groove feels half-finished.

I am now a proud owner of a POTP Predaking. :)

The usual one, not with the sword, he doesn't need a sword as he is a weapon! This is one of the greatest combiner sets.
