Courtesy of Singaporean robot fan Daniel Oon, and toy reviewer on YouTube Kevin Liu, we have a full look in Chinese at an early acquisition of the Titan class figure from the Transformers Power of the Primes toyline for 2018: Predaking!

In the video, embedded below for your viewing convenience, we get a look at the Predacon team as their individual members - Razorclaw, Torox, Headstrong, Rampage and Divebomb - in both robot and beast mode, as the fully combined mode of the Voyager sized Predacons, Predaking himself, will be coming in part two shortly - so stay tuned to find out. Take a look for now, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Always a good reviewer. and YES! a white background.

I'm just gonna say, this titan seriously outshines Devastator by individual bots on so many levels. yeah sure, it's one fewer bot... but that is a weak defense (looking at you Fortmax)

I'll definitely be getting this. Still, have to reserve judgement till I can check out how odd and bulky those big black backpacks are. It's quite a dew-claw for the design. Really surprised it made it to release with that in the design... instead of having them detach into big missile batteries or... well... something else.

That's going to be quite a bit of sticker work. Looks good, and Razorclaw is rather creative on how they do the feet. Also... if Divebomb is Hun-Gurr sized... Headstrong and Tantrum must be HUGE!!!

I'm not sure how much it would've affected the stability of Predaking, but yeah, having the option to unclip the backpacks would've gone a long way, even if they didn't do anything when removed.

UGH

AAAAAARRGH

If yoy
U are looking at rhe hollpw f
Torso i that picture, I believe I read on here afew pages back that the black parts above are aupposed to slidedown into there and give some support to the smaller waist pivot.

That Waist pivot does look somewhat flimsy though.

Thats unfortinate the right arm doesnt seem to have the ratchet. If that left hand falling ofd is a sign of a bad connection, well crap. But I have a fww CW figures with the same problem.

Aren't those black bits razorclaw's legs? I suppose we'll have to wait till more in hand pics and of reviews where it's transformed correctly.

Back from /toy/, are you? Still, that tiny widdle joint is very worrying. I bet there's a 3P upgrade kit already in the work that is so extensive, it will cost as much as the whole Predaking set itself. #-o

How'd you guess? :lol: (Not the original posted of those images/webms though.)

And yeah, that joint alone makes me fear for Predaking buyers. After the shenanigans with Trypticon, I don't see this ending well. I'm still firmly of the opinion that these Titans should have used the same "mass" but much denser, thus being smaller but with more parts and thicker plastic. They'd still end up much bigger than a regular gestalt but...not like...that.

Well that pretty much seals it for me. I'm still getting him, but I'm definitely waiting for a Christmas sale. And TRU being out of business actually works in my favor here since I won't see him on the shelf and buy him on sight.

Thanks to a nudge from fellow Seibertronian unicron1200, we now have Part 2 of Kevin Liu's review for the Power of the Primes Predacons - this time going over the big 'bot, Predaking himself!

The video goes over the transformation process to convert each individual Predacon into their combined mode, helpfully pointing out various locking points and little details of transformation along the way. After that we get a comparison to Combiner Wars Devastator (he's almost exactly as tall as that six-bot behemoth!) and Leader Megatron, and a run-down on Predaking's articulation. For the more critical among you, the review also reveals a few of the figure's potential foibles as well.

Check out the video embedded below, and if you missed it, Part 1 of this review (going over each individual Predacon) can be found here! Share your thoughts by posting in the Energon Pub forums, and as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more exciting Transformers news!

Really looking forward to this! Usually don’t watch reviews before a toy is out but I just wanted one question answered: can rampage and divebomb be interchangeable arms? I’m not usually picky but I’m so baffled on why their positions as arms were switched.

Answer?

No. They can’t be switched. There’s pegs in the back for the wings to attach and the shoulder canons.

Oh...well alright. Not a deal breaker or worth complaining just makes me ask still “Why we’re they switched? When was divebomb ever the right arm?’

When first seeing the pictures of Predaking, I was worried about how thin he looked. However, seeing this video, he looks a lot better than I had originally thought. I am definitely going to add him to my collection!

In virtually every single piece of visual fiction and non-toy artwork that Predaking has appeared in.

It's funny how much of the load Divebomb takes on in forming Predaking.

Why, oh why, could Hasbro not have given us a Volcanicus like this???

I think it's novel (though I would have thought it better to have a larger razorclaw but I understand that wouldn't have worked for some fans)

Because the Titans are mainly aimed towards the adult collectors whereas the single releases are geared towards kids and collectors. What do you think would sell better towards kids, dinos, or 4 mammals and a bird?

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have the dinobots in a larger scale, but from a potential sales standpoint, they made the right choice.

If you want a "Volcanicus" at a larger scale then Zeta Toys are meant to be doing an improved reissue of their Dinobot combiner (I'd recommend buying that rather than the Toyworld original, especially if you want to do the combiner thing). It's not gonna be cheap, but they make for pretty good Dinobots and the combined mode looks awesome.

I love the scale of this figure, it's a must buy to join Devy and the masterpiece team.
