I'm not sure of there is a thread like this one already.
But Seeing as there are two different Predaking sets coming out from Mastermind Creations (Ferocicus) and a new company, Unique Toys (Beasticons), one must have seen both and is perplexed as to which one to get for their collection. Myself included. ><
Mastermind Creations is known to create high quality products from their take on the Hearts of Steel timeline. And their "reformatting" of the Predacons made me wonder if these guys carry an updated look or will stick with the Hearts of Steel theme. I've seen the prototype pictures and it doesn't look like Hearts of Steel. Though I could be wrong. :/
Unique Toys seems to be going the route made by MakeToy by updating the original design for Predaking to give them a more G1 look and feel. Especially when compared to the original toys you can see the resemblance. The combined mode for Unique Toys looks bulkier than MCC's version to fully give the feel for the original.
I haven't made any preorders yet because I want a set that's going to fit into scale with my other combiners (FP Bruticus/Superion, MakeToy Green Giant) and because I just ordered Year of the Snake Omega Supreme.
So which set has your vote and why? Do we go with a totally redesign as set by Mastermind Creations? Or do we go with an update to the original design as set by Unique Toys?
Both look fantastic but I know there are many who remain undecided. Any info you guys can post will help not just me, but everyone else who remains undecided.

I'm getting MMC. More articulation and larger figures for not much higher than UT. Also really liking the proportions on the MMC combined mode compared to the UT one (I actually think the MMC one is bulkier, the UT one seems kind of lanky to me). Helps that MMC actually has a reputation while UT doesn't.

I hate the shoulder cannons on the UT version. That alone made up my mind, even though there are many other reasons to choose the MMC version.

MMC all the way. I use 3P figures to fill in holes in my Classics display.
Classics = New engineering with updated look
Classics =/= New Engineering on a G1 figure.
I'm not bashing UT's release, there is a big market for what they are offering. I am just not a part of that market.

MMC. Their sculpts/designs are far superior, IMHO.

MMC, hands down... They really smoked UT on pricing and overall look of the figures.

I'm getting both for now and may unload the one I like less later. Be careful about saying that MMC is beating them in price. I'd be delighted if all 5 come with a 25% preorder discount, but I'm betting they are just doing that on the first one to hook us (hopefully I'm wrong).
