Impressed with the Power Of The Primes Predaking images we reported earlier? Thanks to a Chinese WeChat user we can share for you in-hand images of the Power Of The Primes Predacons.
We have clear shots of Razorclaw, Divebomb, Tantrum, Rampage and Headstrong. The images show them in robot and beast mode, accessories (a) and how they combine into the massive Predaking. It’s interesting to notice that Divebomb’s wing pack forms the actual waist of the combiner.
You can check out the new images after the jump and then join to the ongoing discussion at the 2005 Boards!
Can Hasbro do all the combiners in this scale?
How does he look with UW devastator
I have mine transformed with the legs extends which makes the arms a bit longer but with them extended they end up being about the same length as Devestator's. So this is the way I plan on leaving Predaking.
My idea is to extend the legs only when I need the extra bend on Predaking arms for posing. This way even if the arsm become too long it will be harder to notice.
Ok, if anyone is still reading this thread I have a dilemma. If you look back at the TOYFAIR pics of PREDAKING, his arms are transformed like the combiners, with the lower legs of RAMPAGE and DIVEBOMB extended, giving him longer and slightly more posable arms. The instructions and the updated pics show with the legs compacted before being arms. I have done mine both ways but just not sure if the extended makes the arms too long and out of proportion. Anyone else notice this? (And the only reason I did was that I mistransformed him with them extended the first time, then watching EMGO on Youtube I saw the shorter version.)
Mine was shipped from Amazon…lost by Amazon, reshipped OVERNIGHT for no extra charge and arrived yesterday! He is GLORIOUS so far. Almost finished with the stickers, which some could use improvement on and then on to the Combiner….I went back and forth about getting Devastator and even walked around TRU with him in my arms for almost an hour before I decided to buy him because of price and size, and it was one of the best decisions I've made to get him. I really like him, so this one was a no brainer to order, and he is great.
Got mine from a local toy store. I like him but that waist is actually only three panels, two on hinges. What was Hasbro thinking? The entire torso is sitting on just that?
So, I guess my third party wishlist is simply a piece to fill in that waist (and something to wrap around to fill out the sides) and a huge freakin sword.

To whom it may concern on those with orders with Thechosenprime and havent checked their emails
Throwing this up in this thread too, just in case people want to know/do.
I maintain my opinion on this figure being "AWESOME"….
having said that….a few minor tweaks were needed….not necessary, but needed in my opinion. (to alleviate frustration)
Due to some questionable molding choices on the weapons, Rampage and Divebomb had a tough time maintaining a grip on them; so some quick dremeling fixed that.
Cleaned up the plastic behind the handle, as seen here:
You can see how it allows the peg handle to fit deeper in the grip, now that it's gone:
Same with Divebomb, although his gun required taking down the entire strip behind his handle. Here:
…and the other side:
Fits nicely now; you can see how it runs along the side of his forearm now, instead of being in the way:
Again, totally not necessary, but I like them to be able to hold their weapons.
I attempted a neck fix on Rampage, because he doesn't seem to want to look "up" too well, but it's a mushroom peg in there, not a ball joint, so I left it.
I need to backtrack and get CW Sky Lynx to go with my POTP Predaking. The size difference is O.K., this time Predaking will win.
Holy cow, I never saw myself purchasing this and I just clicked buy moments ago.
Plastic Crack Addiction strikes again.
….looks like this will be fun to fiddle around with.
cool I got a preorder in thechosenprime and i will wait for that it was 5 dollars less and without sales tax
Predaking is in stock, sold by Amazon, with free 2 day shipping for prime members as of this posting.
Well, there you go. Sounds like a set-split to me.
Find someone that wants the swords and you're golden.
I just want those new wings. Couldn't care less about the sword(s) and I hate those kinds of multi-jointed hands.
I just want those hands. Nothing else in the set appeals to me.
Been there done that 😉
Although I do like the longer antennae, I prefer the stock head.
If you really want a new head just get the CDMW one and fashion an adapter for it, I do think the wings are better than the stock ones, but not as good as the CDMW ones. But that's just my two cents.
I quite like the stock head too they just did it with Devastator, I suppose if it's not broke don't fix it.
