I really love all of the photos... this is definitely one of the best sets of toys since Devastator. I can't get enough of these Predacons.

This isn't correct.
That being said, with the loss of ToysRUs, and not being included in the BigW June toy sale, it's release here may end up being limited, and expensive.

I was only going off information given to me by Armoured Heaven, which is what prompted me to preorder it online too (otherwise I might've waited for a local release).

I've got to say, I just got Predaking and was surprised at just how much tabbing is required for combined mode, specifically around the torso/back.

Besides the fact that Hasbro's instructions are, as expected, terrible to read, I love it. It's big, hefty, solid and will stand next to Devy and the titans.

I am a tad disappointed in this release. I was not as skeptical as some when the original pics came out with the limb parts sitting on the underside/backs of the leg-forming members, I was happy to give the toy the benefit of the doubt with regards to quality.

Itís not nearly as nice as I was expecting from some of the pictures Iíve seen and reviews Iíve read. Easily the poorest of the Titan-class releases of the last 5 years or so. Way more compromises for all 3 modes (robot/alt/combined) than Devastator. Gappy combined mode, especially Predakingís body and lower back. Plastic feels a bit cheap.

Heíll sit up on a high shelf in the collection room, but I canít see myself going back to him often.

Anywhere have this big boy? I was gonna go through TLTC but I put it off and missed the boat. I have a small POL coming at some point from BBTS, but I don't think the cost or shipping will be worth it.

Amazon has it the cheapest if you have prime, just use a trial.

Otherwise make sure you get the amazon au store listing for $293

Thanks for the tip mate! Just grabbed one for me and another OzF for $250 each with the free trial - you just saved us fifty bucks a pop
