    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to know if those of you who own this set would reccommend it? I have heard of QC problems and just wanted feedback on whether it was worth the price etc...

    Thanks in advance

    I've got both reissues, and I much prefer the colors on the 2010 version. Highly recommended! :D

    no QC problems with mine and I could not be happier with it. I am with Foster the 2010 colors are the bomb. I second Foster's recommendation.

    ive had no probs w/ mine..i own the 2010 set(which i display w/CD upgrades) and the takara reissue before it( kept in box cuz it is the more expensive of the two)...and of the two i perfer the 2010 version...it just looks better with the gold stickers applied..tho some are a PITA to put on...i could be biased tho cuz PK is the one gestalt i always wanted as a kid......L8s..

    what qc problems did you hear with it? one of the better reissues I've purchased in a long time, nice colors, big hefty diecast figures, very impressive figure.

    worth the original retail price, imo. though I think some stores may be clearancing it now.

    I was not aware of any QC issues whatsoever. Mine is fine and I strongly recommend it as well. The gold that was used looks great.

    thanks for the input everyone.

    as for QC issues, some boards i had seen mentioned the heads of some of the figures being too tight and breaking when combining to Predaking. Just wanted some opinions before I put the order in, since many folks are clearing out inventory and dropping the price. I always loved "the King" and thought it would look great next to Hercules once he's completed as well.

    check the thread in feedback forum.

    I had peeling factory stickers, and a piece of razorclaw missing (the part that holds the gun onto his lion mode's back)

    Still don't regret it.

    Hmm, interesting. I have both the 2010 version and the earlier takara reissue version. I haven't opened the 2010 version yet, but I love the takara reissue. I mostly purchased the 2010 version because my takara reissue was showing a little wear, I think the heavier die-cast pieces were taking a toll on the plastic joints. Predaking's left arm was starting to sag a little bit. So I wanted a back up Predaking.

    I totally love Predaking, he's an awesome imposing toy. I've got Omega Supreme set up as Predaking's counterpoint. I think this works better because their size is comparable, even though the cartoons have Devastator as Omega's nemesis. This may change when Hercules/Devastator is finished, though I don't know if there is an autobot tall enough to challenge Hercules/Devastator on scale. Maybe Fort Max.

    I love my 2010 Predaking. Does have a minor assembly defect on my Tantrum's foot, one of the screws went in at an awkward angle and the plastic is a bit warped, but not enough to affect the functionality or overall look of the figure.

    That's kind of odd seeing as how the heads don't have anything to do with the combination.

    I haven't had any QC issues with mine, I would highly recommend it. I don't own the earlier reissue so I can't make comparisons, but the gold on the 2010 version looks fantastic and, in my opinion, superior to the yellow.
