I think the implication is that Predaking is a successful clone of beast fossils from an earlier age of Cybertron. But he's not as loyal as he should be. The Labnotes seem to infer Laserback escapes 1st and is completely rogue and a bit crazy. and seems to imply some are loyal to their fellow Predacons and some to the Decepticons but many the indoctrination does not seem to take well. It looks the the Decepticon command stracture will be in chaos if the bio story bares any relationship to the show at all.. and so far the bios and the lab notes do not seem to contradict each other. Megatron builds a castle and then gets a Dragon... what does that make Soundwave Merlin the Wizard then ?
