    Yeah, yeah, I know. Everyone knows they're pretty big, and predaking is very big, but I've been looking around for size comparisons, and the best I can find is over at seibertron, where they have Predaking next to G1 Megatron and Devastator at odd angles.

    Could anyone take pictures of the predacons in robot mode and predaking standing next to common G1 figures, like the seekers, or autobot cars?

    Sure. I have all of G1. I can take photos tonight.

    Any specific toys you want to see with the Predacons, or should I just use the G2 Ramjet and Sideswipe I already have on display?

    Those will do fine, thanks! I'm just trying to figure out how to re-arrange my shelves to make room for them.

    While at NJCC a few weeks ago, for the first time I got to see some Predacons with my own eyes. They are some pretty beefy toys. The Razorclaws and Divebombs I looked like small-ish voyagers to me. Can't wait to get my reissue Predaking in a few weeks!

    I have this pic in my photobucket album. But the figures are bigger than the G1 Autobot cars in robot mode by at least an inch.

    If you look behind Scourge, you can see a loose Rampage in robot mode.

    That's about right. I can include some Animated and ROTF voyagers in my shoot as well. Lugnut, Bulkhead, Blackout, Bludgeon and Mindwipe sound good?

    Here's some shot to give you an idea:

    And Rampage with modern toys!

    JESUS! I never knew the Predacons were that big! Never ever seen them in person so that has come as a massive shock to me. Might think about getting the reissue now :ev:

    funny, the individual bots are way bigger than i imagined but the combined mode is a bit of a dissapointment in that its not as big as i expected it to be.

    Pretty sure Predaking/Predacons where the only true combiner team (meaning I'm not counting the large movie devastator) that was done with full size toys rather than small scale figures.

    That's one of the coolest things about it.

    Same here...I had no idea even after all these years that they were that HUGE. I can kinda see why the re-issue is a bit pricey.

    I never knew that so many people didnt know about predaking's awsomeness. One of the best G1 figs out there, and if you can afford it, treat yourself to the new reissue... you wont be disappointed.
