    Should we expect to see any of these in the next 3-4 months? Wave 1 of potp arriving early(or, y'know, in a reasonable time frame) has kinda thrown me.

    And adding articulation.
    I think Shockwave has knees for transformation. And I was also wondering that about Ratchet? What purpose did that serve? Unless someone broke it...

    I like the predaking but the lion mane needs to be bigger.

    Looks like he's wearing a damn corset.

    Can't wait to see a size comparison between Predaking and CW Devy. Not that I'd be too surprised by the results.

    Predaking is just okay combined just not $150 price tag okay. The individual figures are borderline "Cyber Battalion" quality in both Bot and Beast modes.

    Instead of a Predaking Sword, they\'re giving a Prime Master figure? WTF?
    I can't believe the level of hate this figure is getting here...

    Predaking is awesome !! Love how they did full integration for the waist and and thighs while keeping the bot modes fairly similar height.
    This is great !! Wonder if the TT version are gonna repaint it to cartoon colors ??
    Or some other exclusive will, since it is pretty much a given nowadays !!

    Ok, really liking Predaking, but still up in the air about the hands/feet. I see the G1 influence, but they just look added on instead of integrated, like Devastator did with his hand mounts. Still, never had a Predaking when I was younger, and I love this Titan Scale combiner thing...

    Also, don't tell anyone, but I really want those shoes...

    He will probably stay in Predaking mode for me, so the kibble is not really an issue.

    Well said, and let's get a few in-hand opinions before the pitchforks and torches go full on...I talked myself out of and into Devastator about ten times before I caved. Even spent over an hour carrying that big bast**d around TRU before pulling the trigger, and while some of the limb articulation was lacking, the final combined mode was IMO the best I have seen. So I will keep an open mind, but nothing so far has turned me off of Predaking yet.

    I like it. Afrer you collect for over 20 years as a grown man (longer if we date back to being a kid in 80s getting Transformers) then you learn to appreciate everything you get the more you get. It all kinda blends together. That aside I like this design & I'm sure in hand, with the proper shelf, & storing facility, it'll be really fun!

    The Warriors and Ultimates have normal 13- 14 points articulation. Knees is a given you were probably looking at the CGI drawing where they are harder to notice.

    So they can find ways to get all 13 Primes out there on package. Also it's costlier for w Predacon weapons and especially the old heavy ones, then a existing mold of a Prime Master with 2 small paint apps.

    I'm really hoping the gold seen on the wings on the box art ends up being on the actual toy as well. Looks so much better than those plain black ones we're (currently) seeing on the display figure.

    I believe a Hasbro rep at Toy Fair said that they were still working on the hands and that the hands would end up with the knuckle spikes in the end. Anyone else remember that and want to confirm?
    I wish more people generally thought this way.
    Yeah, I was looking at the renders.
