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.

It comes with stickers but we have to apply them, as evidenced by some of those in Singapore that already have him and photos out of the box had no stickers. As to whether you find them nice enough, versus waiting for reprolabels, I can't answer that for you.

Actually, I think I want that, just for the absurdity. Would probably scale well with my daughters ken dolls.

Then we'd just need a Leader Groove to have him in all of the standard sizes. Even...

...Cyberverse...

...and Micromaster Groove! OK, the Micromaster is technically a different character, but do we really care?

Hell, if we are going to go that far, lets just jump to a Titan class groove with a working motor that 2 year olds could ride. Bought on site.

Now now everyone, as fun as this is, we are in the Predaking thread. ;)

I'll admit I'm warming up to this big lug a little. I'm still not in love like I was with Devastator, not by any means, but he's looking more acceptable at least. Maybe I'll pick him up eventually, depending what insane price he ends up going for down here :lol:
