UT Warlord – AKA Predaking

I always found it weird how Predaking was supposed to be the ultimate fighting machine, and yet he got beaten by Sky Lynx, Wheelie and a Human on his debut episode in G1 >_>.

I mean, check this out:

TECH SPEC

The closest thing to a perfect fighting machine the Decepticons have. As a warrior he has no equal; as a weapon he has no restraints. His actions result from seemingly savage, animal instinct. Can lift 500 tons; reacts to any movement he sees within .002 seconds. Can generate protective electric field. Weilds powerful x-ray laser cannon. Each foot houses twin mortar shell launchers. No known weaknesses.

Strength:
10.0
Intelligence:
5.0
Speed:
3.0
Endurance:
8.0
Rank:
7.0
Courage:
9.0
Firepower:
9.0
Skill:
8.0

Now that’s probably the most epic description of any Transformer ever … and yet in every episode he appeared in he got his ass whooped!

It’s a pity that his on screen performance never matched his bio; maybe he got intimidated by all the expectations placed on him and it messed with his mind…

Anyways, I recently got the last member of the Unique Toys NOT-Predaking, known as “Warlord” and in this case, the gestalt really does end up more than the sum of it’s parts.

Now that is beautiful…

Usually, third party Transformers end up as being a “re-imagined” version of the character, however in this case UT simply just took the original design and gave it more articulation, and way better proportions.

Of course, UT did “cheat” a little by parts forming the waist, hips, head, feet, hands and the large wings, but in this case I’m glad I did because it makes the best proportioned NOT-Predaking out there in my opinion.

Sharpclaw, AKA NOT-Razorclaw is also 1.5 times as large as his team mates, which is also kind of cheating as he is meant to be the same size.

I took a chance on UT Warhawk almost a year ago, and now that I have the set, I am glad I got him. However I am also getting Mastermind Creations Feralrex, which also looks extremely cool, and that will be my “Classics” Predaking as opposed to “G1.”

T close, I do highly recommend UT Warlord NOT-Predaking, and I think I give it 9/10 for combined mode, and probably a 7/10 for the non-combined mode.

Seeyas next time!

    i prefer unique toys non-predaking, the mmc version i jst think it’s too much muscle, and not in scale with my deluxe class figures. the tfc one is even larger for all individual bots.

    I agree the MMC ones are not in scale with my classics … however I think I’ll still get them as it still looks pretty cool! I don’t mind having 2 Predakings lol (even if he is really weak in the cartoons)
