Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have updated with something particularly awesome today – official photos of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predaking. You might remember that at the New York Comic Con where Predaking was first revealed his robot mode was kept under wraps – well BBTS has lifted the lid on that mystery! Predaking’s robot mode looks pretty awesome with a good amount of black and orange with some silver on his legs and face. The color arrangement on the arms in particular is a possible callback to the original Predaking. Perhaps less pleasing for those who remember Beast Wars is a return of “beast claw hands”, where the hands of a toy’s robot mode are formed by the claws of the beast mode and consequently don’t look much like real hands.
One other point of note is that these pictures reveal Predaking is bringing a third weapon to the battle along with his twin missile launchers – and appropriately, it’s a sword formed out of the tail of his dragon mode.
Read on and check out our mirror of the pictures.
