    That alt mode is rediculous looking. Just had to say it, even if I don't collect this line.

    It just look weird without the jetpack on the truck, seeing how it covered a lot of his robot mode parts.

    There really is no way to escape that that design just has Optimus limbs sticking out the back of it, is there?

    Oh well. Prediking still looks like it'll be amazing, and it's more in-scale with the voyager Optimus anyway.

    It looks like it has a very similar transformation, too. Fake grille-chest and all.

    I can't see where that looks any better (or any different) than Voyager BH OP. other than that circular weapon and being bigger. And the wings on the Voyager, when folded in, help hide the joined arms and legs in alt mode. I kind of think this looks worse.

    I agree. I prefer the Voyager to this.

    The lower half of the alt-mode looks way too big and completely jacked up. It looks terrible.

    Yeah, that's what I thought about when I first saw it, but couldn't put it to words.

    And is it me, or is the shield "floating" on his forearm?

    Except somehow worse. The initial leaked pictures from Toy Fair made it look like it might be really nice, but these images look awful. Alt mode is just a wadded up robot!

    Oh well, if it sucks that's all to the good. Perfectly content with my BH Voyager Optimus, and that means I can keep more money to spend on MPs and 3rd Party stuff.

    Remove that pin to remove it. If a 3rd party makes a better head for it I might get one and remove that insane wheel of death.

    The fact that this has a simple transformation (simpler than the Voyager?) doesn't give me much hope that the Ultimate-class Predaking will be any more complex than its Voyager counterpart, either.

    I mean, it's not Supreme Cheetor, but I really hate "big expensive TF's where all the bigness is just for lights and gimmicks, not a better transformation/look"

    Yeah, not really feeling this at all. I'll stick with my voyager BH OP. Besides, something tells me it'll be the one that's in-scale with Ult. Predaking.
