Ahead of this Friday's all new episode of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters, Hub Network has uploaded a new promo starring Predaking sharing some facts about the mighty Predacon dragon. Facts like - a wingspan as big as two football fields and fire breath hotter than the planet Mercury. Check it out below:

"Wingspan as large as two football fields"

Uhhhh....no.

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.

Huh they finally said Predaking
AngryChad
Yeah, this commercial was on The Hub weeks ago.
Mr.Deflok
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.





QLRformer
They make him sound like Godzilla. Very cool, but can be exaggerated...
Scaleface
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.
netkid
Is Predaking going to eat Wheeljack?
Shepard Prime
This is largely why I haven't bought Predaking yet. I'm still holding out that they'll make a leader class or--yeah right for this but--or Supreme class.

I want the figure like the cartoon, with the rediculous wing span and height. It's not imposing/impressive if he barely clears Shockwave in height.

Looks like it's custom time for me...

Like I said before, just use Ultra Predaking with your Cyberverse toys. That's pretty accurate.

Sorta like using ROTF Voyager Demolishor. He's really a big Cyberverse toy.

Predaking's breath is hotter than mercury. That i did not know.

"The ultimate autobot hunter", except when incognito icicles are involved...
BeeIsMyHero
Breath hotter than Mercury? Really? I feel like that would've have done more damage in the past then.
BobbyKyra
I've been quite dissapointed with Predaking so far. I had hoped he would've been a bit more menacing, or at least would've said something instead of being, well, a beast. Here's hoping that will change

Yeah great, another one of those super over the top firepower skills. Bugged me in the G1 bios, bugs me still. If characters really were portrayed in fiction with their actual powers, they would have destroyed the a planet hundred times over. :-/

Oh well.

I have the feeling he will, in one form or another.

Well they could get off on a technicality. With very little atmosphere once a spot is out of the path of the sun it cools of real fast. So any temperature between -262 F to 807 F could be "hotter then Mercury" technically.

where the heck have you been? there is a Ultimate Predaking coming out you know with a wingspan of two feet long...

'Eats Autobots for Breakfast'

Yeah, that's why he hasn't so much as injured an Autobot in the show.

From wikipedia...

Quote:
Mercury's surface experiences the greatest temperature variation of all the planets, ranging from 100 K (−173 C; −280 F) at night to 700 K (427 C; 800 F) during the day.
So playing it safe, his breath can be 801+ degrees. I could believe that. Aluminum melts at 1220 degrees. Iron can take over 2000 degrees. Being hotter than the planet Mercury is not a big deal or unbelievable at all. A dollar store lighter burns at about 450 degrees!
Transformed
"Eats Autobots for breakfast,"

It may have given them a run for their money, but the Autobots managed to beat him back enough leave him scratching his head.
Scaleface
He a actually eats WITH Autobots for breakfast, at the Cybertronian iHOE. (Inter-faction House of Energon).
Oric
Breath hotter than the planet Mercury.... not that impressive.

The daytime temperature of Mercury is over 400 degrees Celsius.

In comparison the flame provided by a Bunsen Burner (those flame trays from high school) are approximately 1200 degrees Celsius.

Still I like the description.

And later he and Megatron have tea in the garden with Bumblebee.
BB Shockwave
"Wingspan of two football fields!"

"Breath hotter than Mercury!"

"Eats Autobots for breakfeast!"*

*Note: Do not keep it under 0 degrees Celsius.

They forgot to add extremely prone to freezing up instantly in the arctic..

They've already disposed of him twice, not much of a threat anymore.

i do recall seeing on radicons working on a supreme class scale from scratch
Scaleface
Just backing up the enormous size of Predaking. Optimus is the biggest Transformer on the show now, probably 30 feet or so? Predaking makes him look like a baby. Predaking's wingspan is easily 3-4 times his body length.... so.
