Default Beast Hunters Ultimate Optimus & Predaking out & pics

From member Sinnertwin, fresh out of packaging at a Sydney Kmart - Beast Hunters Ultimate Optimus Prime and Predaking.

Note that they are different prices here - Optimus is $79 and Predaking is $69. I think they are both going to be the same price in America (US$60) because Predaking is a Target store exclusive. They are both regular releases in Australia.

As soon as someone rushes over to a Kmart to buy and post up some photos or a video review, here's the first two images to tease you with (and tease the rest of the world, who aren't supposed to get them until June according to BBTS or August according to Hasbro at Toyfair - maybe they were brought forward a couple months).

Did we get these before the US again?

That is a very, very nice price now that I've found out they're apparently larger than leaders.

I think I'm going to Predaking. If anything just as thanks to Hasbro for the early product.

Post up pics here so the Americans know where to look to drool... and hate us.

Anyone getting Optimus, or is it just not interesting enough to be worth buying?

I was considering getting Optimus but the inflated price tag and the design being so similar to the voyager have put me off. I'll definitely be grabbing Predaking though.

I checked out the optimus at Target yesterday, it's appearance is very large and simplistic, in the box. looking at it I don't think the vehicle mode will be very cohesive. I'm going to give it a miss for the moment. I'll be looking for a predaking tonight though.
