Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predaking Robot Mode Revealed

Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have updated with something particularly awesome today - official photos of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predaking. You might remember that at the New York Comic Con where Predaking was first revealed his robot mode was kept under wraps - well BBTS has lifted the lid on that mystery! Predaking's robot mode looks pretty awesome with a good amount of black and orange with some silver on his legs and face. The color arrangement on the arms in particular is a possible callback to the original Predaking. Perhaps less pleasing for those who remember Beast Wars is a return of "beast claw hands", where the hands of a toy's robot mode are formed by the claws of the beast mode and consequently don't look much like real hands.

One other point of note is that these pictures reveal Predaking is bringing a third weapon to the battle along with his twin missile launchers - and appropriately, it's a sword formed out of the tail of his dragon mode.

Read on and check out our mirror of the pictures.

Dragon mode is "eh", but I love the robot mode.
Super4Ever
Looks pretty good, but I plan on waiting for the larger scaled version.

So why was the robot mode such a huge secret at NYCC? I was expecting a BW Megatron head or something...
Bountyan
...Meh.

I don't get it either. The bot mode doesn't even look special. There's nothing interesting about it.

It's nice to finally see his bot-mode. It's actually pretty cool looking. The claw hands look a little odd. The Dragon is definitely the weaker of the two modes. He might actually be worth getting. Though I want to see the larger version's bot-mode, and I might just end-up getting the Commander figure to go with my Cyberverse collection.

Hopefully this means more official pictures are on the way. Most especially the new Optimus figures.

not really liking either mode... i might wait for the larger one, or skip him altogether if there's not a version i like. i'll probably wait until i play with one in person before ultimately deciding.
CobramusPrime
Hmmm... Still on the fence with this one (but why?)
Deceptigtar
ill prob wait till it hits stores as both modes of this look meh. the picture of the bot mode makes it look like a cyberverse commander.
HeroicC300
Anyone notice how he looks like he's wearing dark ages era armor?

When I get some money, I'm claiming all Beast Hunters wave 1 figs (Legion, Commander, Deluxe, CV Vehicles, Voyager, and the Weaponizer Magnus)

Yeah, gonna wait for the huge version.
Kaijumaster
I still can't look at this things and not Flashback to 2005 and see KB-Toys Halloween Snowcat......
Hollywood Hoist
I'm hoping for a Hun-Grrr repaint.
ssjkazer
I hope his hands arent fixed that way
GreednGluttony
he shall be mine
Digilaut
This thing does nothing for me. The bigger version is cooler, I think, but if not for the packaging I would easily mistake this one for a generic changing robot some toy stores seem to offer.
Optimus Prime
Finally! Looks pretty cool, but I'm even more excited for the larger version.
blue death
That's not a great bot mode. The dragons nothinng to look at either really. But after all the hush hush about the robot mode since NYCC I guess I jsut expected, more?
jackgaughan
If the bigger one is better, then I'll get him, if not, this guy is mine.

If you go to voyagers in all you can see a selection of beast Optimus prime. So the 2nd toy is Optimus. I'm going to wait and see how big predaking is on screen before I buy a toy.
General Tekno
Looks solid enough.

Find the clip in it he is much bigger then everyone else
Dinodigger97
He looks decent. I might get if just for S 'n' G.
slackerforhire
aaaand the streak of me not caring for any of the designs in Beast Hunters continues. Bummer.
Sideways77
Really uninteresting, this voyager is.

I'll pass on it and buy the supreme.
SG Roadbuster
oooh, i likes it. and upon closer examination have figured out his transformation. its clever, not something i've seen before/in a while
The Bucket Kitten
He looks badass in robot mode, can't wait until they start showing up in retail.
Transbot90210
I can't say either mode impresses me and as others have mentioned, why not reveal the bot mode, there is no mystery behind it.

Maybe I will form a connection once I see him on TV. I hope the larger sized version has more umph packed in to it.
Molina00
His bot mode looks really good and I like how they seem to be giving voyagers more serviceable weapons now than everything up through Dreadwing. I've got him and the deluxe beast pre-ordered. The rest of the deluxes don't impress me. Wheeljack looks interesting but not enough and Bee looks downright awful.

What's the bigger version you all are talking about?
Spin-Out
Holy shit. THERE ISN'T ANY TRANSPARENT PLASTIC IN HIS ARMS. HE DOESN'T HAVE A SHITTY MECHTECH WEAPON.

This guy looks fucking amazing!
TylerMirage
Dang, I was just about to post this in a new thread. Glad I looked first.

I really liked the Prime show and toys, but I don't think I can follow them down this path

What? Beasts? They're no different from Dinobots, or Insecticons.
Grimlock_13
Has a larger version been confirmed? I haven't seen anything about it.

The Voyager here looks cool though...nothing particularly special about it but I do love that color scheme.

There's no solicit for a larger version, BUT we've seen pictures of a larger toy in-hand.

Well thats cool I must have missed that. I'll head over to the resources page and check it out.

Edit: Resource section only had the Voyager and Cyberverse versions...can anyone point me in the right direction to find pics?
Shatterpoint
Looks nice, but I'll be getting the bigger one.
Jetbolt
I like it, I look forward to having Predaking and BW Megatron battle over command of the Predacon faction in my display.

He looks to be the size of a Weaponizer, to me at least. Gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, they dropped the weird gattling gun gimmick for the size-class, like they dropped the mechtech-like weapon gimmicks from the Voyagers.

Thanks guys...I remember those pics I guess I had it in my head that was the Voyager version. Looking at it again it's definitely bigger than the Voyager. I'll definitely be getting that version.
Rob
Cool, I am a scale nut so his size in the show will dictate which class I get (voyager or bigger.)

Any word about Optimus? I hope they bulk him up ala FOC or the Vault book. Not that I hate his current Prime design I just thought he was too skinny.

The larger version was seen at a show. IIRC it was on its own with some Asian chick. You could tell it was a bigger version but there was no mention of it at the official reveal.
