    Terminus Giganticus stands 55CM/21.4in tall while POTP Predaking is 45cm / 18in.
    So Terminus is 11/9 compared to Predaking or 22% taller, which is close to 1.5 heads taller (8.5/7, 21% taller).

    An ordinary lion is 2.6 m to 3.9 m long, Zoids Liger is a 8.3 m tall beast, while Concorde is 61 m long. Silverbolt alone would be taller than most combiners.

    I sat and worked it out once. For Superion to be even remotely in scale with, say, CW Menasor - and even then, Silverbolt still throws everything out of whack, 'cos Concorde - in combined mode, he'd have to be about 4 feet tall. :p 

    EDIT:

    In fact, ah-ha, found it, I did a piccie at the time...

    yay, scale.jpg

    Scaled to their altmodes, as for Abominus i don't think it will be possible to scale that character but for Predaking and other beast combiners they can be scaled to their beast counterparts sizes

    Hope you don't care if Predaking is lacking an impressive wingspan then.

    Plus FAAAAT legs.

    While this head by itself suggests either Monster Pretenders Wildfly or Dinoforce Yokuryu, the extra gun with Snarl does rather say Dinoforce Doryu and thus Dinoforce is more likely than Monstructor:

    That is barely peripherally the same weapon. In fact, I argue that it's closer to Birdbrain's gun. However, HasTak has done stupider stuff, so it wouldn't surprise me. Just fail to see how Dinoforce (JP exclusive characters) makes it into the US before Monstructor. Guess we'll see how it breaks down.

    My guess would be that the Dinoforce will be a Takara Mall exclusive boxset of Dinobot retools. While Monstructor will be a US/general release akin to the G2 repaints of the Combiner Wars guys.

    Yeah, but the Predacons were giant, like the Insecticons- more comparable to the Dinobots. Most beast modes were just weaponized animal forms, not scaled disguises:/

    And Predaking makes me grateful that I never picked up any 3P figs. Pretty much EVERY 3P thing that's been shilled on this site has had an official version done cheaper and better. After the FP Dragstrip my daughter and I found at Goodwill pretty much fell apart on her, I'm elated I didn't throw more than $1.50 at it.

    I personally don't really care enough about the Predacons/Predaking as a team and combiner to spend big bucks on 3P versions of them, but as an official HasTak product (especially a nice boxed set), I'll bite. 3P's like DNA Designs will more than likely give us an upgrade kit to make him look better and more stable too, much like UW Devastator (I really like the DNA kit on him).

    You could seeing as there is a limit as to how big life forms can get before their hearts can't supply enough blood, and their own body waite crushes them. I think there is a Film Theory or Game Theory about just how big monsters can be.

    It makes me glad that I have a cheaper option. Do you know how much a second hand Predaking from MMC is going for here? 350 euros, almost 400 bucks.
