    Hold on, I'm confused. All the previous shots we've seen of Predaking show his backpack wings to be fully black. Now we're seeing them with gold plates. Did I miss something? :confused:

    Yeah, I believe Metroplex was the last one available widely in stores other than TRU. I saw him at Target, Walmart, and Sam's Club.

    Yes, modern instructions are a suck-fest, especially when you compare them to the old instructions.

    Not interested. Wrong size hasbro. No incentive to replace a third party one!

    If you can get one from Toy Dojo go for it. You're paying an extra $40 but it's free shipping and perhaps no tax. For me it ended being about $25-30 more, but to get him a month or more before general release I think that's completely acceptable. Mine arrives Tuesday, excited as he completes my G1 US Toon combiners.

    Yeah I looked there, sold out already. Don't know how long it was up for sale though.

    I pre-ordered mine last month through a local comic shop. Seeing these pics make me even more impatient for it to arrive.

    They went up last Friday and again Yesterday. I sent an email last week after I noticed they had them in (after I missed it) and they mentioned being surprised at the demand. I don't think they got many at all.

    I might be misremembering, but I think in beast mode, at least one of the Predaons cannot open his animal head's mouth. Not sure who, exactly, if any, though it that is the case, that's somewhat disappointing. Even Blot's mouth could open.

    Tantrum and/or Headstrong I think?

    I'm still marvelling at how much more poseable than Devy this guy is.

    Were you able to flip his arms or is this image mirrored?

    You can flip the arms no problem.
    For anyone sceptical, the below image has the free poster in the background, so you can see it's not mirrored.

    Legs are an easy swap: rotate the waist 180°, rotate each thigh 180°. OK, you'll loose the yellow on the front of the hip but ....
