    Looks awesome, it'll make a good early Xmas present!

    Btw... 12,600 yen = $145 (approx)

    I'm definitely not doubting that, I see they match colors perfectly, but with their new king parts set, it's color matched to the original Predaking orange. And judsging by the pics so far, this 2010 version seems have a metallic shade of orange, so like I said earlier, I'm sure they'll release an asterisk version to match this one like they do for the G2 Devastator's

    That depends if they see there is enough of these sold to give them a reasonable assurance of enough sales to justify a second run with the needed color alterations.

    30+ dollars for a head? probably the same for arms and legs, you will wind up paying half as much for the upgrade kit as you did for the prediking. No thanks ill pass on devys upgrades, selling everything seperate is pretty lame.

    Judging by how they already sold out of their pre-orders for their first head, it's only a matter of time:D

    I'm all about this. Money be damned, I'm feeding my "plastic crack" habit.

    Now that is a thing of beauty! I've never owned this monster, but have had friends in my youth that did. I couldn't afford the first re-issue so this is a must. I've always really wanted the Predacons, ever since first hearing the little info tidbit at the end of the G1 series episodes.

    Impressive, but I prefer the straight yellow, with the shiny gold relegated to detailing (stickers on the old version).

    Still intrigued though.

    ^this.

    $48.99 for a pair of wing attachments is redunkulous. This Predaking will be full of win even without upgrades.

    I was hoping this reissue would be the all plastic version. I have the last one, and it's die-cast, and I hate that aspect of it. It's hard to get the Rhino to stand up cause his whole back is so heavy. Regardless, I'll save my $200 because of the gold paint. Too different from the original.
