Went out Saturday evening and got the Power of the Primes Predaking box set from an EB Games in Mississauga.
He usually retails for 230$ here and that's just stupid. But the site has started listing the set for 190 and I thought that was a much better deal so I called various locations and only some had it, I went for the closest one. I've been wanting this for months.. This Predaking set makes me very happy. To start with the weakest part of it, the Predacons' beast modes. They're decent at best, I like Divebomb's eagle mode the best on account of it's huge wingspan, and I could understand Torox and Headstrong having super stocky bodies. But Rampage and Razorclaw just have weird proportions and they're the weakest to me. Their robot modes on the other hand are pretty great.
But the main attraction and the reason to get the set, is the combined Predaking form. Man he looks awesome..waist is still kinda thin but it's very very solid. Comparing to Devastator, he's not as widely built and might be a TINY bit shorter, but Predaking is more stable to pose around and play with. Also easier to actually transform between modes, not super simple but it's a breeze that makes playability even better. And maybe it's just me, but Predaking actually feels HEAVIER than Devy, when I pick up each one singlehanded. He must be made of some solid chunks of plastic.
The set looks pretty plain outta the box though, and you're gonna have to sticker it up yourself with the provided sticker sheet. Took me like an hour and I kinda botched some of em..but I enjoyed seeing it all come together.
All in all I think it's a great set, and I'm glad to finally have it in my collection.
