in Beast Hunters, News, Predacon, Prime

Thanks to the Official Transformers Facebook page, we now have the first official look at the Predacon Ripclaw! Definitely not a "femme" shaped Transformer like Airachnid or Arcee, this is one powerful looking Predacon in the spirit of Beast Machines Stryka. Interestingly she has a slightly different symbol than the one seen on Predaking and Lazerback. It should be interesting to see just what this means in the series!
