Following on from the previous news story from NYCC which contained the preview trailer for season 3 of Transformers Prime which will contain the subtitle "Beast Hunters", we can bring you some preview images of the first Predacon toy, Predaking, thanks to TFW2005.
The images of the figure, which can be viewed after the jump, have been mirrored from TFW2005 as that website is currently serving malware and is unsafe for visitors until the admnistrators remove the infected files. If you visit the website you will receive a warning in your browser regarding the malicious trojan software which has probably been uploaded as a result of a vunerability within the v-Bulletin platform which runs the website. Once the site becomes available again you will be able to find the original images here, but until that time simply click on the heading of this news article in order to view the mirrored imges.
Predaking is the leader of the Predacon, a third group of Cybertronians who, according to the hints within the preview video as well as the background stand, are the "Decepticons ultimate weapon". The toy of Predking is a homage to both the original Generation One Predacons, in terms of colour scheme, as well as Transformers Galaxy Force Flame Convoy (Transformers Cybertron Scourge).
The figure is only shown within his dragon form, though if you look closely you will see the shape of the head quite clearly. We have enlarged one of the images to help highlight this which you can view below.
With volume one of Jim Sorenson's and Bill Forster's latest book, G.I. Joe: Field Manual Volume 1, out now, fans of the series will be please to hear that the 2nd volume of the book, which covers the 2nd season as well as the Dic series, is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com. Set to be released in February 2013, you can preview the book here.
Jim Sorenson updated his blog on Tuesday with a new Ark Addendum entitled Ratbat's Transform. As you can probably guess from the title, the article focuses on the transformation sequence for the Generation One Decepticon cassette Ratbat.
Here's an update from Jim, "this week I finish up my cassette transformations. I give you...
Ratbat! It's a simple transformation. He basically unfolds, much like
the toy. The big difference is that his weapons pop out of his back,
instead of being attached manually. And one final reminder: we've got a book signing for The AllSpark Almanac Addendum this Saturday at Emerald Knights Comics & Games in Burbank. 1:00 PM on December 10th.4116 W. Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505"
Jim Sorenson has posted a new additional to his Ark Addendum yesterday called Mircobots Part 1 . Here's Jim to tell you all about it, though remember to click the link to view the character model.
"This week in The Ark Addendum... MICROBOTS! Part 1. No, it's not a
two-part episode, I just have some more designs from the episode.
Unusual ones... but we'll get to that next week.
This week's installment is the backgrounds and props from the episode.
As we all remember, the Decepticons discover the remains of their
as-yet-unnamed starship, which Beast Wars would dub Nemesis. Inside is
the Heart of Cybertron, which powers up Megatron and prompts the
Autobots to shrink down, Fantastic Voyage style, and infiltrate
To me, the stand-out models here are Floro Dery's take on Megatron's
insides. He reused some of this imagery for the inside of Unicron a
little later. It's just a lovely alien landscape, bizarre and
compelling. Hats off to you, sir, hats off."

“MEGATRON has not been seen nor heard from in sometime, and if his
return is imminent, it could be catastrophic,” said OPTIMUS PRIME.
The lure of the TRANSFORMERS saga starts a new chapter as all foes
return, legendary heroes rise, and new ones are found in unlikely
places. The new CGI animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME which currently
airs on The Hub television network and is a Hasbro Studios production,
deepens the epic mythology of both the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS, while
starting fresh for a new generation of fans. Arch rivals the AUTOBOTS
and the evil DECEPTICONS, lead by MEGATRON once again face-off in their
rivalry for control of Earth in this new show. Celebrate the triumphant
return of the AUTOBOTS through cutting-edge CGI animation with
TRANSFORMERS PRIME – DARKNESS RISING. Early 2011, loyal TRANSFORMERS
fans, as well as families and kids, were introduced to this visually
stunning five-part miniseries on The Hub. OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE,
ARCEE, AUTOBOT RATCHET, BULKHEAD, and many others are back to "roll out"
against MEGATRON's latest attempt to conquer Earth. And MEGATRON proves
to be more powerful than ever, having acquired a rare element that
allows him mastery over life itself. OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTBOTS may
be few against the DECEPTICON hordes, but they find increased strength
through bonds forged with three human teenagers, taking the human drama
to levels as yet unseen by the franchise.
On December 6, 2011, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc,
