    I love predaking. He was my favorite transformers gestalt toy as a kid. I bought all 5 misb each in separate boxes from japan 6 years ago. I bought 2 of the predaking reissue box sets. 1 to open and 1 to keep sealed for display. I have the tiny die cast predaking. Now, I just bought the botcon razorclaw and elita one set off eBay just because I need that razorclaw. Why do I love the predaking so much? It is insane. Does anyone else have some insane predaking love or stories they wish to share?

    no, but i understand why. I want a leozack bad enough, just because i love the liokaiser toys and the character from Victory cartoon. I have a rather large liokaiser collection.

    I think the colors on BotCon Razorclaw look decent enough, but I don't like the base mold that much, and it's not like you can actually form Predaking if you have this one. Fans of Predaking are left wanting with this offering, IMO.

    I want him cuz I love Predaking. Hell I want all the G1 Predacons to get updated toys and a working combiner form, they deserve it. I just wish I could afford Razorclaw.

    Sadly, I do not think takara will ever reissue the King again. I heard he was a shelfwarmer in Japan and did not sell well. I got my second predaking reissue to keep sealed for less than msrp. Can anyone on the borad confirm or deny this?

    Question about how well reissue Predaking sold in japan?

    Does nayone know how well the first reissue predaking sold in japan? I heard that he was a shelfwarmer and a poor seller so I do not think takara will ever reissue the king again sadly. I would even buy him again because I love that toy so much.
