    Yeah, those price drops are frustrating. I got this early November, because Amazon had a pair of deals that put it at around $120 with free same day shipping. I figured, almost half off, and I get it that afternoon? Sure. But then Black Friday rolls around and everyone's selling him for $99.

    I got bit by that too. The Titans always come down pretty far in price but since his release was fairly recent, I though $120 was a pretty good deal. Live and learn.

    Yeah, they get cuts pretty quick from Hasbro. Next fall, the E-tailers will cut it.

    This will probably be at Ollie's in March. I'll buy a set to scalp but, I'm going WJ.

    I guess "estimated release December 2018" was also overly optimistic

    I have too. Sad part is though, I had a feeling it would be drastically delayed. They had what, 2 or 3 projects going at the same time? The Grimlock upgrade was delayed a few months before they could focus on this.. I just hope that they fix the wings before release.


    *I don't mind the feathers, but they really need to shorten the area that connects to the feathers so the wings can fold properly

    I wonder if these hands could work on the WJ version

    I doubt it. The WJ version is already designed different from the official. (The little connection tab is what turns the wrist on theirs) This DNA kit is just the hands, no connection bracket

    I was looking forward to the hands the most, but the fingers really seem just too long.
    Also not a fan of the sword. It seems huge just for hugeness sake. Same with the wings. Those are comically large.
    I'm really digging the back spine piece, though. It's good looking as well as functional. Bonus points for being able to be carried over to individual Razorclaw mode.
    I'll probably end up selling off the sword, and maybe the wings. Depends on how they look in hand.

    You say the wings are comically big, and you're not wrong, but just wait until I post the picture of him, Garatron Thunderwing, PX Ismenios, SND Nova Prime, and PE Cryotek (presumed to come out) all together. Predaking won't stand out at all!

    I don't know any of those, so I'll have to take your word on it.

    I see these being designed after that one piece of artwork where Predaking is crashing through a bridge to assault Superion and Defensor. He has gigantic wings and a massive sword, things he didn't have in G1 for the most part.

    I would have really preferred the wings smaller, no sword (or just less huge) and a new arm cannon that transforms like the G1 version.

    I like this kit. Fills him out really good in the lower torso area. Hands are clever with the fold in knuckle dusters. Fingers do look a little long, but will see when in hand. The wings look about right to me, not much bigger than the official. Can't wait for this and add it to the 'King.

    Cool, I didn't know he came with new shoulder ratchets. I'm going to do a happy dance when this and the Dream Wave Abominus upgrade finally hits.

    The sword is still stupid big, though.

    The sword is a little big. I'm probably going keep using the one from TFC's Ares. Matches really good.
