    You can only choose one. I'm on the fence about these two. I have predaking on preorder but Rodimus is pretty cool too. Which one would you buy if you could only choose one and why?

    I have the first Predaking reissue, but if I didn't, I'd much rather get Predaking than MP RP.

    Predaking, easily. I dislike Rodimus, so a MP Rodimus has no appeal to me. I just wish I had the moolah to be able to get Predaking.

    MP Rodimus. He's a marvel of modern toy engineering. Whilst Predaking was a marvel of modern toy engineering in 1986. As with most (all?) G1 combiners Predaking's posability is minimal.

    Rodimus Prime... i've owned Predaking twice and sold him each time. overrated in my opinion:2c:  and i'm sure he will hit the sales rack within a year of its release just like the last one.

    hmm. So do you think predaking will be available, say, six months from now? Not that anyone would ever know that for sure.

    Well... last time Predaking was reissued.... I was a broke freshman in college:( . BBTS clearanced them out for 120 and I snatched one up:drool: 


    not sure if that would happen again so if you want it really bad, put a preorder in now. I can play the waiting game because i'm not going to lose any sleep if I don't get predaking. Rodimus Prime has my money because that figure just looks amazing.

    The coolest figure since MP Starscream, or a lousy Combiner.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Since I've already got G1 Rodimus, I'd say Predaking. Then get MP Rodimus to compliment G1 Rod. So, I'd say go for Predaking.

    Well....instead of putting into a perspective over which one is better, how about this POV:

    Rodimus, is a new mold which more than likely will find it's way over to the US and other areas. So availability should be pretty good.

    OTOH, this will be the second time that Predaking has been reissued, and has not made and appearance outside of Japan. My guess, probably has passed the necessary tests. So I'm guessing his availability will be much lower.

    At this point, get what you want. At the end of the day is your money. But consider all your options.

    Since there is no option for both, I'd say masterpiece rodimus if I had to pick just one and only one. Imo he is the better figure, super accurate and arguably the best masterpiece yet.

    However if ur thinking of possibly getting one now and one later, I'd go for predaking first, just based on the after Market prices of the reissues, it's a takara exclusive and that rodimus will presumably have a longer run.

    But who am I to say... I couldn't decide either so ordered both :)

    I have the re-issue of Predaking and IMHO most of the excitement of Predaking was trying to get it. After he arrived, it was fun at first. Then after a few days, it was like "meh".

    I'll get predaking because I always wanted him as a kid. Availability is the big question. I want both and will eventually have both but I need to make sure I make the right choice. i.e. skip predaking and then when im ready to buy him they stop making him and EBAY is my only choice.

    I'm not saying one is better than the other, I think they are both great figures. I guess I'm really asking which one will stop being sold first so I make sure I don't miss out.

    If you can, buy both. I'm sure you can find a way to save the money.

    rodimus totally, predaking is just really not worth it

    and besides, if you wait, chances are hasbro will gut the trailer, so if you want rodimus prime, get the takara one

    MP Rodimus.


    They'll eventually re-release Predaking at some point in the future. Also MP Rodimus is really 2 charecters in one figure (Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime)

    I own a G1 Predaking currently but would love to get a minty fresh one for displaying in box. And for MP Roddy even though he is made of pure awesome I am not a Masterpiece collector save for MP Grimy whom I've renamed Generations Grimy.
