    There is a lot of information about this upcoming toy in various threads, but as far as I know, there still isn't a dedicated thread solely for the discussion of Predaking!

    So let's start here, shall we?

    There were "rumors" years ago that Predaking was on the horizon, but with no substantial evidence of any kind, they were little more than items on a wish list.

    But our wishes became reality when the infamous PotP info dump leaked, including a picture very similar to this one, that was out first indication that a Titan Class Predaking was in fact in development!

    *********

    Our next glimpse was also a leak, this time of a physical mock up. Some people freaked out saying it looked like crap, apparently not grasping the concept of what a "mock up" is...but the important thing is the SIZE. This has so much potential to be as awesome as Devastator in the Titan Class size.

    *********

    At the TF panel at Hascon, this teaser image was shown on the screen. Just a silhouette, but we're getting closer to a proper reveal:

    Finally (for now) at NYCC we got to see what is apparently the actual physical prototype of the wings.

    I for one could not be more thrilled! I absolutely love Titan Devastator, especially since I bought the Takara UW version. And Predaking is my absolute favorite combiner, so seeing him get the same treatment with that kind of size is a dream come true. He'll loom ominously behind my Decepticons on my MP shelf!

    So who else can't wait to get this monster?

    I look forward to it, but Titan Class might just be too big for me. I like that it's getting made and if I do enjoy the look of it enough, maybe I'll buy one. But so far Volcanicus and Abominus interest me more.

    Also, you might want to remove that first image which was part of the leaks, Hasbro contacted TFW to remove those images so you could do that before a mod needs to edit your post. I don't know about the mockup, but that first image is trouble.

    These guys would have to be Voyagers to match most of the 3P non-MP dinos.

    For me, Predaking would only be too big if he were Metroplex-sized. Devastator-like sized is PERFECT for me. Screw that 'keep it the same size as the CW teams' nonsense. This is freakin' PREDAKING!
    So yeah, I'm hyped.

    I would be more excited for Predaking if it was standard CW size, not Devastator size

    I have my Feral Rex and love it. This thing will need to be something special to get me to double up on Predakings.

    Y'all can't talk to me about size until I get a Fort Max and a Galvatron that can fight each other.

    Seriously though, since when was Predaking not way bigger than all the other combiners?

    The silhouette looks great, but that mockup is pretty weak. I don't understand why this is going to be so huge though. I wish they'd focus on making really good smaller figures instead of really big hollow figures. Passing on this like Grandma's casserole.

    The first 2 pictures are not allowed since they are not officially shared. The rest is fine but this thread should be on Toy Discussion, moving there to continue the discussion.

    Devastator is by far the best combiner in CW so I have great expectations for Predaking. Size is a plus for me since it makes him scale well with MP figures, and since we may never get an official MP combiner this is the next best thing.

    I've always wanted a Predaking so I'm very excited for this one. Now all I have to do is figure out where to put it since, like Devestator, it will be too tall for my main display shelves. Devestator ended up on top of a file cabinet.

    I slept through most of s3 but I remember for sure he never appeared next to another gestalt in Marvel G1.

    [I should clarify I like this scale because it works better with Optimus Prime, Megatron, and (ideally) Swoop... although that's more a knock on The Beast than this guy.]

    Predaking is a big ass mofo and deserves to be as big as TR Devy.
    Kudos Hasbro!
