    Found one at retail last night, looked pretty good in package and is even better in hand! Every bit as good as the Voyager imo, even if the dragon mode isn't really posable. I find the transformation more interesting, especially how they deal with the legs. Robot mode is great, very good range of articulation, head included, the forearms can even rotate due to transformation. A solid Commander!

    Man his legs are so short in beast mode, he looks like a dragon dachshund or something. XD

    The rear ones are, the front ones aren't, they're just really bent to match the rear ones.

    Robot mode looks awesome, dragon mode looks like he's overweight, IMO

    The alt mode reminds me a lot of the dragon minicon, but more evil-looking.

    I seriously can't wait to get my paintbrush on this figure.

    The Royal Kingdom of Canadia. ;) 

    Thanks for the review. These photos have made me realize that I like the Predaking toys more the smaller they get. The Ultra one looks like ass to me, the Voyager one looks good, this one looks great. He does have a bit of that comical 'fat dragon resting his belly' look, but I kinda like that.

    Is that a spring loaded weapon?

    No, you have to push the missile out manually. Not going to use that gimmick, it always works poorly. Prime and Bulkhead have the same kind of missile launchers.

    Love the way you posed the dragon heads in robot mode, hardreturn, makes it look so much better. Sweet robot mode, okay dragon mode.

    How do you achieve that configuration? It doesn't look possible without altering the toy.

    For the first three seconds, I thought that was a little paint work.

    Cyberverse has quickly become the most consistently impressive line around - especially when considering price point and figure size.

    It's too bad I really like the dragon-mode on the Voyager, 'cause this is a really nice figure.

    Great review. Too bad his dragon mode looks like it's squatting to take a dump.
