    The commercial has been playing for a while, but this is the first time I've seen it online. I did the whole scale/math thing about "2 football fields" wingspan with the toys already:

    The size of Predaking varies depending on which toy you use.

    The Prime Cyberverse Commander Predaking's wingspan can reach up to 7 inches stretched out. That's a 1/1028 scale. With the robot mode standing 4 inches tall, that makes him 342 feet 8 inches tall.

    The Prime Voyager Predaking's wingspan can reach up to 11.5 inches stretched out. That's a 1/626 scale. With the robot mode standing 7 inches tall, that makes him 365 feet 2 inches tall.

    Either way, the implication of a "two football field" wingspan is a pretty big robot!

    1. I really hope this thing just doesn't have a robot form in the show, given the size it would be.

    2. Preda-metal music. Win.

    2 football fields eh? They might as well say he has a wingspan the width of the moon. It'd be just as believable.

    The ultimate Autobot hunter hasn't met much success. I guess, well, yeah, he did find/hunt them and then he loses.

    I suppose that's why they didn't call him the ultimate Autobot killer.

    Cool.

    Yeah, I was going to point that out too. Seeing as how your typical football field is upwards of 300 feet in length, I highly doubt that Predaking's wingspan is "more than 600 feet". He's big, yeah. Heck, he towers over Megatron in a quadruped stance and does have an impressive wingspan, but...two football fields? Really?

    Not really impossible. The animation model has larger wings than the toys, and they show a closeup of Megatron next to Predakings head, and he's only slightly larger than the head. We figured out in the scale thread that Megatron stands 30+ feet tall from indications. So saying the wingspan of Predaking is 600 feet (the length of two football playing fields) sound about right.

    They make him sound like Godzilla. Very cool, but can be exaggerated...

    IN a way he's bigger than Godzilla from all accounts. It's just the people standing around Predaking are 20-30 feet tall!

    The original '54 Godzilla stood about 167 feet, which is a bit bigger than one of Predaking's wings. Of course Predaking is mostly wings, and a smaller body, plus Godzilla got bigger in later movies.

    Anyways, to make things closer to scale, you probably have to compare the Ultra Predaking with the Cyberverse Megatron toy.

    But does he transform? I'm guessing he won't transform.

    Yeah I really doubt he will. That would probably force him to have more character than just "big robot dragon" and possibly to actually be named Predaking in the show. I don't think we will get that, or any other predacons even. I think Hasbro said "Kids love dragons these days, so lets make a bunch of Dragon Transformers", then the show writers had to work a dragon in somehow.
