As of yesterday we finally got a full look of Power of the Primes Predaking! He is my second most anticipated combiner in the whole Combiner Wars/Titans Return/Power of the Primes series. Devastator of course is by far my favorite combiner through all the years. I'm super stoked to have him in my possession!
One thing that I've noticed with all of the combiners being released is that they don't have their weapons!! Where is his large gold sword???!!! I'm sure a 3rd party like Perfect Effect will come out with one, but really Hasbro!! I was definitely disappointed in Grimlock, who becomes Volcanicus that he didn't get his flame sword! Perfect Effect came through once again to give him that Grimlock retro look he deserves. No matter what Predaking will end up next to the rest of my combiners.
When I first laid eyes on the sneak peek pics I wanted him immediately. I just couldn't wait for him to be released. The masterpiece collections are far superior to any other line of transformers. Any collector should have them part of their collection. Sun streaker is definitely one of those "must-have" transformers.
He is amazing awesome!! Takara hit him right now, and then some. I can not believe the detail. One thing that I've been nervous about for the past few masterpieces is that they are super sensitive. DO NOT pull or push on any of the parts. This one especially since they have plastic piece between certain jobs so that they don't rub. It appears that they are painted surfaces that could chip off if not transformed correctly. All said and done...BUY IT!!
All my masterpieces are labeled with Toyhax stickers. They give them the childhood feeling of the G1 look.
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 1000+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
