    I have enough stash to buy either 1 new reissue Predaking or 2 G1 reg size Headmasters?

    Have Hardhead and Highbrow. Both loose and Minty! I want my all my headmasters the same!

    i just got my reissue predaking. he's nice and big and heavy with good diecast parts. pretty awesome.

    i guess the only question about him is whether he will suffer from gold plastic syndrome. i like the gold color compared to the cartoon and g1 yellow, i just hope it holds together. :( 

    i don't know which to vote for though. :)

    I've actually bought a couple of 1987 G1 headmasters in the last weeks: Chromedome, Skullcruncher and Weirdwolf, and I already own Mindwipe, Snapdragon and Apeface. I also own Predaking, and if I'm honest, Predaking is a way better toy than the Headmasters, in all respects. A lot more impressive as a display piece, better play value, better designs.

    Don't get me wrong: the regular Headmasters are pretty cool in their own right (especially the triplechanging Horrorcons), but given the choice your are stating, I'd choose Predaking every time.

    I'd choose...Scorponok. :D 

    Seriously though, Predaking at least enjoys the privilege of having been reissued twice already, whereas vintage HMs can be a bit tricky to come by, especially complete.

    Unless by 2 G1 Headmasters you're referring to Scorponok and Fort Max, go with Predaking.

    While Headmasters are cool, Predaking falls into the "essential" category due to extreme awesomeness.

    I don't think Scorponok or FM is an option...

    If it were me, i'd get the Headmasters out of the way. A lot harder to find than Preadking.

    Headmasters a pretty boss. I would go for those if they are close to mint. Then save your money for an original Predaking later. The yellow and orange looks much better than the reissue gold color.
