    That's perdy looking. I'll bet they want $40 for the pair. At least the wings would add something to the figure.

    EDIT: I was about right. Looks like they are charging $37. Sheesh.

    I may have to get a set for the upcoming reissue. This does actually add something to the figure, without taking away from its clunky, G1 charm.

    Nope. A whole kit sold together or nothing. Not that they care, this piece-by-piece crap still sells out.

    It says $36.95:lol  I'm still waiting to see just how much different the original color is from the new one. Overall, I think it IS great looking and can't wait to see how they give him "thighs" so he doesn't have the "guerilla" arms

    *sigh* If only. They prefer to dangle each carrot, one at a time.

    :lol  I'd love to buy stuff from CrazyDevy but no way I'll spend that much on what you get, multiple times with each set they release no less.

    This will be one hell of an upgrade set.

    It might be just me but those wings while they are an improvement seem a bit too large.

    I think it'll look fine once all the pieces are released. It'd look weird with the 2 big shoulder cannons and have small wings

    *shudders* We have only gotten 2 kits thus far for Predaking. The total, ordering directly from CrazyDevy, is already around $67. At this rate, the Predaking kits are going to top the total for the G1 Devastator kits. That is not a good thing.

    Somehow, I was oblivious to the pricetag on CrazyDevy's kits. $20 would be acceptable for this. $35 for just the wings is a bit much.

    My Predaking can stay in all his tiny-winged retro glory.

    Well I have to say that for any of the pieces shown so far this particular "set" looks like it would be the one most deserving of a higher price tag, the price is still ludicrous.

    Oh well. To each his/her own.

    I think they look an inch or two too long.

    by the end of these kits coming out, i'd be able to buy a whole predaking reissue; for cheaper :lol 

    no thanks, i pass.

    only part of predaking that i ever had a problem with, was the tiny "sword" aka stick, they put on him instead of the real thing.

    predaking looks amazing with out all these extra parts. they should of been focusing on a combiner that really COULD USE something extra, to fix the over all; look. but predaking, was not one of them.

    so pass on all of these, unless by the time it all is revealed it looks really amazing. other wise, they won't get a dime from me lol

    I'm amazed it's not 37 per wing.

    So...the original wings don't fit all that great onto the figure and they certainly lack the necessary support structure for the weight...

    How are these things going to be held up?

    Intrigued, but we'll see what's what.

    I hope they have plans for a gargantuan murder sword.

    It's simply a must have :)  When all kits will show up, Predaking in its original G1 toy form will loose all its appeal it had in all these years...
