The CRAZIEST PREDAKING KNOCK-OFF Ever! – Transformers Review

Transformers collectors love Predaking. Formed from 5 Predacons, this was a must-have toy when it came out in 1986. This knock-off is… a very crazy version. In colors that evoke European G2 flashbacks, this undersized Predacon set is a must-have for those who truly enjoy the original toy and even the Combiner Wars version.

The Predacons are a subgroup of Decepticons that consist of Rampage, Divebomb, Headstrong, Tantrum, and the leader, Razorclaw. They appeared in the 3rd season of the Transformers cartoon during the Five Faces of Darkness mini-series. They also appeared in the Marvel Transformers comic book as a squad sent to destroy Megatron. These five mechanical animals merge into the fearsome Predaking.

This version, affectionately called the “Jolly Rancher” Predaking, has very colorful Predacons that are smaller yet transform in a similar, though not identical, fashion to the G1 Predacons. With a clever gimmick where the weapons combine as well, this garishly colored Predaking is an amazing find and, for under $25, a great buy.

To purchase this toy, you can find it on AliExpress:
