Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class Predaking Pictorial Review

Posted on 01-12-2013 at 02:20 PM by ORIO under Transformers Prime
Preda12
Once again, thanks to bbs.78dm.net we have another extensive gallery of the other Beast Hunters Wave 1 voyager, Predaking! This black, orange and silver dragon of death is shown here in both of his modes, with his twin dragon launchers and swords at the ready, and in package photos. Also shown is just how poseable this figure is in his beast mode. Predaking's dragon mode can be posed on all fours, on his hind legs and if you prefer him flying, you can have all four limbs at his side. It's quite remarkable looking.

What do you think? We've mirrored the images here for your enjoyment. Click the title bar to check them out!

Looks okay. Beast mode looks funky. Robot mode looks pretty rad though.
BaltMatrix
Pics should be fixed now.
Jetbolt
Can't wait to get my hands on this or the bigger version.
RedAlert Rescue
I wonder what colour his Glyphs are picked out in CGI form ? or what they Translate to.

Anyone noticed if any other BH Toys have Glyphs on them ?
Smashs
AHahahahahahhaha.


Wow, no thank you.
Shadow25
This isn't really the fault of the toy (or maybe it is) but he looks very plain and uninteresting besides the face sculpt. Maybe I'll like him more once we get to know his character, but for the menacing, big-bad hype Hasbro has given him thus far, he's just not visually striking.
Heat Guy
Looks wicked, but will wait for the bigger one. On a high note, looks like figures will be getting catalogs again.
Sovietbot
Is it possible for take a closer look its box art with it?
changepas39
That is awesome!
phrules
Looks great in robot mode. Beast mode is just like "meh..."

I hope they'll release a bigger version.
soundwave142
pretty damn kool looking
Bumblebee765
I wasn't originally planning on getting him, but now if I see Predaking in stores I'll definitely be picking him up! (It helps that he's orange; my favorite color! ) That robot mode especially looks amazing!
Noideaforaname
For a highly poseable, 3-headed, Halloween-colored dragon-bot with some quirky transformation steps, Predaking manages to be incredibly unexciting.
charsdc2
If compared to Prime, he's much weaker! The dragon mode's gotta go! The bot mode is okay, I do love the head sculpt though! I can pass, if not, I'll just get 1 so I can have a sealed figure of him.
Astrotrain52
Not a bad design at all. Robot mode is slightly better. But I'm holding off until I see pics of the larger Predaking figure.
Karhukjnsi
Get a pic of the story in the instruction!
Switchblade
Nice mold, but desperately needs more paint.
Decay_is_awesome
I think the large unpainted orange sections hurt him quite a bit, if there was some black detailing to break it up it would look much better. I dig the BW Dinobot style hands and the look overall so unless the larger one comes out around the same time Ill probably grab both.
OmarJT82
Is it me, or does Predaking's head have a Galvatron feel to it.


Geof7609
King Ghidorah mode just completely sold me on this figure.
Solrac333
Looks better than I thought. He's a maybe.
MagnusPrimal
I was going to pass, but these pictures are making me reconsider.
I'd like to see pictures of the bigger one sometime soon though.
soundwave142
I like this pics of him..
[IMG]

and his cgi robot mode on the box
Sideways77
So unpainted...


I'll defiantly buy the larger one, but this one looks uninteresting.
Pravus Prime
Instabuy.

What's funny is I've seen a few people say the same thing, but the other way round.

I like both modes, myself.

He's not as eye popping as his wave mate Optimsu Prime but he still looks good. I'll probably get both this and the Leader/Ultra/Supreme figure comming later.
Pcm979
Once again I find the face on the CG render much more pleasing to the eye than the one on the toy itself, which seems to have a wrinkly scowl. Also, the white-on-black of the legs makes it look like he's not wearing pants even more than is usual for TFP.

When those things are put together I can't help but be reminded of, of all people, Squidward.



Edit: Well, it was worth a shot.
autobot prowl
Meh, he looks alright. More interested in the deluxe beasts, this guy just looks boring to me. He almost looks like they tried to bring Cybertron Scourge into Prime Universe, but failed. Maybe the larger version will look better.
Puck Hockey
Hrmm. I almost like him. Almost. He has no neck and his overall design is still uninteresting, but in some poses he looks quite dynamic. I'll still hold out for the bigger version. Also, he looks nice in CGI.
GAUGE
More bitching and moaning. Predictable.

IMO The toy looks great.

I can't wait for the Ultra Version to come out.
combaticon164
These voyagers for Beast Hunters are better than I thought. I am coming around on this line.

He has a decently sized neck, it's gray and very visible in some pictures. It just has an enormous neck armor that sinks his head a bit.

Seems like a bit of a stretch...But if you say so...
SPLIT LIP
If the orange on the shoulders and wings was broken up by a bit of black, he'd look way better. And his face is the same old generic Prime face shape so many characters share.

Took the words right out of my mouth. That freaking toy looks amazing in those pics, I can't wait To have him.
Optimus1116
Looks nice, but that paintwork is really letting it down.
Flexx Ark
I would love to see the dragon mode posted with Cyberverse figures.
Flexx Ark
Those tech specs scream "I'm going to destroy an Autobot in season 3".
Scantron
Looks decent and the leg transformation is more complex than I'd expected. Not keen on the 'hydrafire blasters' or the BW-esque tailsword, though.
Anti Spark
This tf suffers from the lack of paint applications. Once again radicons will fix this bad boy.

Agreed. I really like what I'm seeing here, especially with the posability in both robot and dragon modes. The beast mode in particular looks like it was inspired heavily by Maleficent's dragon form in Sleeping Beauty, which is pretty awesome since Maleficent is an awesome villain. Also, where is this talk of an Ultra class figure coming from? Can anyone point that out to me?
SmokescreenWRX
That Predacon symbol looks familiar... can't place it.
Has it been used or re-purposed?
Shockwave9227
I think this turned out pretty decently. I'll wait for the larger version but if that doesn't turn out too good, I will buy this voyager class version.
Dinodigger97
He looks meh, but as a sucker for dragonformers, I'll get him anyways.
JT-bob
Is that even supposed to be a robot? It just looks like a generic Japanese dragon-man thing, not remotely Transformers at all.
Paradigm-Shift Prime
Thanks for posting.

His colors also look like movie The Fallen.
Omegax80
Could use some more color, seems a bit bland, but overall looks like a very awesome figure.
