It is indeed the old style predator anhillator, armed with the traditional twil-linked lascannon and 2 sponson mounted lascannons... It was around in 2nd edition, may be from earlier but I'm not old enough to know

Yep thats what it is. 2nd edition onwards no earlier. I remember running out to get one on the release day lol.

The Gun muzzles on the twin linked lascannons do look like they have been tinkered with a bit though.

Nice old school model. I always wondered how the marine would actually get back inside the tank.

I have a couple of these packed away somewhere, along witha few old style razorbacks with the massive gun sheilds.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Yeah, it doesn't look quite right.... maybe the angle colour of the TL cannons or maybe its the colour of the whole tank- didn't this person know that they are all meant to be painted SW grey? Even the box it came in and the WD that announced it had it in Wolve's colours
(ok yes, I do now remember it coming out... but I was very young so my memory took a while to whirr up to speed).

Hybrid metal/plastic Predator annihilator approx 2nd ed. vintage. Original box would've come with both heavy bolters and lascannons for the sponson mounts.
Sponsons look legit, turret twin-linked guns have been tinkered with.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

Old Skool Lascannon Pred. That's really old, actually. Good piece, but a little hard to put together.

Would also make a jab at how is was having ED: Electrical Dysfunctions.
