As a massive fan of Predaking, my favourite G1 combiner since childhood, I am really excited for this release, it looks well proportioned.
Love the G1 comparison pics.

Outback is a must. Predaking, I may want 2 so have a combined one and a robot mode set. Cindersaur, it's garish and an eyesore, I will buy it too lol. Inferno is a pass unless I find him cheap. I'm happy with my Classics Inferno

I was thinking that they looked like fashion show clothes, something that I wouldn't be caught dead wearing. I like the bags and the shoes though.

I agree with you there, I think the classics inferno feels a lot more 'inferno'.

Is there any word if Takara/Tomy will be doing versions of Predaking and Abominus? And if so will they differ from the Hasbro versions? I loved that the CW and UW versions were just different enough from each other to warrant having two sets, so I could always have a gestalt and individual bots display set up.

They have announced nothing yet. I'm not holding my breath for changes to be made to any POTP toys by Takara.

Ladies collection here

The bomber jacket is nice.

Designer label price of course haha. I canít work out where the other items are, like the bag etc, their website is a pain.

Had a nice up and personal look at those shoes earlier today. I'd buy them.

Also nice that Hasbro changed their display area this year. I'm not on the list to visit but i could see some TFs as some of their stuff is no longer blocked from the riff raff like me. Had a pretty nice look at Predaking. Lucky it wasn't a glass wall or i would have fogged it up...

Something I never thought of though, tear his head off and modify some other headmaster and BOOM you get Hosehead. That would have made way more sense in the beginning

You don't need to modify any Headmasters. There's already a Titan/Headmaster version of him thanks to Takara.

It would be quite a head turner and a conversation piece to wear that suit to a convention such as Ozcomicon or Supanova.
