    That is my question in a nutshell to all my fellow TF peeps. If you had an opportunity to have either the Sixshot reissue or the 2010 Predaking reissue which would you get?

    Everything else being equal, I might go for Predaking. I have the Sixshot reissue now, and while I like it, it's nothing mind-blowing.

    I have a beautiful complete G1 sixshot, and while he's really really cool I would trade him in a second for a predaking- so I guess my answer is predaking.

    I've owned Predaking for about 10 years now. I say go with Sixshot.

    Sixshot. My nostalgia has more roots from those purple and blue shade late G1 era decepticons.

    It's funny that all of us who have one of the toys suggest going for the other.

    Maybe the OP should skip both.

    I want to add to my G1 Decepticon ranks but I am having a hard time choosing between the two options. With Sixshot you get 5 TF's in one if you don't count Sixshot's bot mode. But with Predaking you get 6 truly distinct and different TF's. I suppose the choice should be easy but for some reason it is not. And SouthtownKid, I noticed the same trend which made me chuckle.

    As much as I love Predaking, Sixshot if the cooler toy.

    No matter what though, you will have an awesome toy.

    Hahahaha... that's true. We always want what we don't have. I remember wanting Predaking badly. But after owning him for so long he's rather meh. But he really isn't. Its just that for me I used to have Sixshot when I was a kid. And have fond memories about him.

    I think the smart thing to do is to get that Predaking reissue. Its rather cheap. And might go down in price a bit more.

    Sixshot. This just even isn't a thought process for me.

    Also note that I REALLY like Predaking. A LOT.

    I think the 2010 reissue looks crap with the gold plastic (gotta be yellow to match my nostalgia, folks). I had both the New Years Reissue Predaking and Sixshot, and ended up selling Sixshot, but I only collect '84-86 TFs, so...

    I say buy Sixshot.

    ^normally I would agree on this, but Reissue Pred is for people like me who can't afford the originals. :p

    Have both. The king looks better displayed but sixshot is the more fun toy. Id get sixshot 1st since preddys more available.

    Kinda wish he had sound effect tho, as it is i gotta go pew pew pew when i chase the cat around the living.

    Ughh... I have Reissue Sixshot, first reissue (yellow) Predaking and 2010 (gold) Predaking and I gotta tell you, it really is a difficult choice which one is best. Sixshot is very impressive, big, loads of fun to transform and just a very well made and designed TF. Then again... those arguments also count for Predaking.
    i'd say go for the one which is five seperate good Transformers (i.e. Predaking) and one ginormous looking Combiner (but get the Crazy Devy Sword to go with him).

    In an ideal world: get both. Slightly less ideal world: get the one which will get expensive fastest first.
