Transformers Predaking 2010 Reissue Box Set New Production Run from Takara Tomy

By Jack on Thursday, December 06, 2012



Looks like Takara Tomy and Hasbro have plans to offer in production runs of most all of their G1 Re-Issue toys from the past decade. Following on the recent flood of the Hasbro Commemorative Series G1 toys, a new Pre-Order has been spotted on BigBadToyStore for the Takara Tomy Transformers Predaking 2010 Reissue box bet that is listed to arrive this month for a price of $224 USD. This is a nice opportunity for fans who missed it in 2010 to snag this amazing box set now at bigbadtoystore.com

This new gift set includes all five of the original Predacons (Razorclaw, Rampage, Headstrong, Tantrum and Divebomb) each with all of the die-cast content of the original releases. These new versions are done with a new gold finish to replace the original yellow content, and come with all of the pieces to assemble the monstrous gestalt robot Predaking. This new 2010 release commemorates the 25th anniversary of the original release.

The Predaking 2010 Reissue Box Set includes the following figures:

Razorclaw: Function: Predacon Commander. Razorclaw combines with his fellow Predacons to form Predaking's torso section. Mistaken for slothfulness, the seemingly protracted periods of inactivity on Razorclaw's part are in fact the process of Razorclaw harnessing his tremendous energies. Razorclaw expends energy only when a venture promises a worthwhile result, and in those instances he is characterized by savage, relentless assaults. Razorclaw's massive lion mode enables him to leap distances approximate to a football field.

Rampage: Function: Gunner. Rampage combines with his fellow Predacons to form Predaking's right arm. Characterized by constant ferocity, Rampage is alternately mesmerized and lulled into a temporary stupor by Earth television. Rampage's tiger mode enables him to leap 300 feet in height and 500 feet in distance. Rampage's foreleg kick is capable of shattering a cinderblock. In robot mode, Rampage is equipped with a 60,000 volt lightning rifle, and a 5000 degree Fahrenheit thermo-sword.

Divebomb: Function: Aerial Assault. Divebomb combines with his fellow Predacons to form Predaking's left arm. Divebomb amasses a mixture of sports cars, jet wing sections, and theater marquees to create mountainous mecha-nests. Divebomb's back-situated rocket thrusters enable him to fly at a maximum speed 300 mph for a range 2000 miles. In robot mode, he is equipped with a particle beam rifle with an infra-red sight, and a laser-guided sword.

Headstrong: Function: Ground Assault. Headstrong combines with his fellow Predacons to form Predaking's right leg. The contemptuous, belligerent Headstrong is almost pathologically stubborn to the extent that he will listen to no one, particularly his comrades---however his stubbornness secretly stems from the seat of debilitating insecurities which leave Headstrong vulnerable to psychological, rather than physical, attacks. Headstrong's rhinoceros mode enables him to puncture 3-foot thick steel obstacles and deliver bursts of corrosive acid. In robot mode, he is equipped with a plasma-sphere shooter, and a light-distorting diffraction sword.

Tantrum: Function: Fueler. Tantrum combines with his fellow Predacons to form Predaking's left leg. Issuing steam from his nasal ducts, Tantrum is given to bursts of unreasoning fury, which he prefers over any other form of discourse; Tantrum frequently plies his massive horns to the task of obliterating highway trestles and small buildings. Tantrum's horns generate 20,000 volt electric blasts, and he is outfitted with four exterior fuel tanks as a reserve source for himself and the remaining Predacons. In robot mode, Tantrum is equipped with a chemical-discharging catalytic carbine, and an electro-sword.

Predaking: The base sum of the ceaseless savagery of the Predacons, Predaking is among the mightiest and most destructive of the Decepticons. In his warrior capacity Predaking is unrivaled and is unburdened by any recognized weakness. Predaking is capable of lifting 500 tons, and can react to any movement in his line of sight within .002 seconds. Capable of generating a defensive electric field, Predaking wields an X-ray laser cannon as well as the twin mortar shell launchers housed within each foot.

I have the 2008 one, and I will say this if you do not have Predaking you should get this one, though I might still buy this one if I can get a hold of all the Crazy Devy upgrades

Gps won't happen on these. The reason gps used to happen was because there was too much metallic fleck added to gold plastic before. It's like trying to make a loaf of bread with only a drop of water, it's just gonna break up on you. Now that they've worked this out they put less of... read more

Autobase Aichi has dug up a new image showing that a Kabaya version of the Seacons will be released somewhere in the near future. These technically will represent the iteration of the Seacons from Masterforce, but they happen to be pretty much identical to the US release Seacons. The only picture of the kits are combined as King Poseidon. And since Masterforce's Seacons were legions of drones apart from Turtler, getting duplicates of most of these wouldn't be a bad thing!
