It seems like Twin-strike is actually part of a combiner.

Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Target Exclusive Cyberverse Legion Terrorcons

Weapon: Gattling Gun
We've seen Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Cyberverse Legion Twinstrike, an obvious homage to the G1 Terrorcon Sinnertwin, we know a Legion Class Hun-Gurr is on the way, now we can can confirm that all five Terrorcons are headed our way...............and they combine! Courtesy of TFG2 we have our first look at the Target exclusive Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Abominus gift set. Scheduled to release this Fall, the set features Hun-Gurr, Twinstrike (Sinnertwin), Rippersnapper, Windrazor (Cutthroat), and Blight (Blot) who combine to form Abominus! Check out the image mirrored below.

Hmm, wonder if the individual releases or the giftset will bear the G1 deco. :-?

HO-LY----!

Okay, the Cyberverse just became more than an afterthought to rising plastic prices.
I did not see this coming.

Under the logo it says, "Existing tooling with..." new character decos? So the whole gestalt team's getting a mass release with different colors, just not as a set? Maybe one deco will be G1 Terrorcons, and another will homage Monstructor or Dinoking!

And here I was thinking Hun-Grrr was going to be a cheap repaint of Sinnertwinstrike. Instead, he's actually a bit closer to Doublecross, but fair enough.

This is so awesome that my usual radar for exclusives-come-clearanced-shelfwarmers is completely thrown off; gotta' buy on sight!

REALLY ironic considering what "Terrorcon" was redefined as meaning from the start of the Prime cartoon. I didn't care about Dark-Energon decos before, but it'll officially be a shame if these guys don't die and come back as zombies, if only in the fiction on their packaging.

This is pretty cool and just the fact that Abominus is getting some love is amazing, it's just a bit Grimstone looking but at least they all transform , i would like to see some deluxe combining that would be interesting.

Yeah, Hun-Grr's deco's the furthest from G1, but the red's not too far off from his original purple.

I think the most interesting one is Blot/Blight: his deco's kind of accurate to how he looked in the 1987 checklist, a lighter blue than the purple and darker hues of his actual toy. Will this toy bring us closer to an understanding of exactly what his alt mode's supposed to be?

Re: Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Target Exclusive Cyberverse Legion Terrorcons

Postby Cybershark » Tue Feb 05, 2013 11:48 am

You know I really want to be Happy about this, I really do. But its once again a total Hasbro FAIL to Not deliver what the fans want (Full sized, scale combiners done right like TFC and FP,and MMC are currently doing and I dont want no BS stories of how expensive it would be or theres not enough demand,because that would be WRONG). We see 3rd party companies now totally BLOWING out Has/Tak in all figures now especially this 3rd party Combiner war that has begun brewing. Hasbro COULD make things like the 3rd parties do. Hasbro Could make money as well and offer them at lower prices because of their distribution base,etc. Just look at the Master piece line(that line is basically what I am talking about but they are slow and screw the USA customers by making them Asian only until TRU gets to pick 1 up every year or two). But yet they still put their time into "legion" size garbage? And even the transformation is spindly(hands Im talking about you? lol) and the size/scale is off? Hungrrr should be twice the size or 3 times, but to keep it all "legion" its not. Plus no hands again or feet, just stuff that barely resembles them? the entire thing is out of proportion!! But since insane collectors will be so "hard up" for a Hasbro made Abominus we will ALL buy it!!

I dunno about any of you on this board. Im sure a lot of you are new enough or just love ANYTHING Hasbro puts out,Ive seen it Ive argued it. But they are failing tremendously in the USA with the sparce product and poor quality of toys we do get!! Especially since Hasbro up and stopped putting out product after the DOTM first line( and didnt go through with the rest of the DOTM line and abandoned it as well as these lame FOC Hollow toys we are getting trickled in, etc). Fans, Collectors only have so much money to spend on Transformers OR 3rd party Transformers, and when those 3rd parties cost a small mint to buy and are easily 10 times Better then Hasbro's? Dont you think Hasbro would understand that they are going to LOSE a massive chunk of change in the market this year as well as future years if they do not step it up?? For the first time in 20 years I didnt buy ALL the Transformers!! And I HAD every store bought main line Transformer made from 1984 til 2011. Including Japanese and Euro release!! Screw it, Im not buying crappy toys anymore. You want to make good stuff Im all on board but there are A LOT of people that feel just like I do right now as well.

Just a small Rant since nobody else ever seems to want to be negative about their "precious" Transformers toys, but Hasbro better WAKE UP!! Because a lot of us "old" collectors (Ive been collecting them since the 80's) are fed up and are spending our money on 3rd party Gold this year rather then waiting months and months for some lame overpriced beast Hunters deluxes or legion sized figures!!

And on that note they look decent for legion figures at least. But thats not saying much,lol.

Cool! Instant Must-Buy!

Question, though: are any of these figures Target exclusives, or are they just Target-exclusive repaints? Will we be able to buy the same figures in other color schemes at other stores?

My guess would be the figures themselves will be general retail (in fact, Twinstrike should already be out), but there will be a gift set too, with a tweaked deco. We'll know by Fall.

Well I'll want at least two of each figure, in two different color schemes, so I can mix and match. Hell, I might even need three or four of each figure for more options.

Yes, because Hasbro is totally obligated to give the fans exactly what they want each and every time. How dare they not cater strictly to the demands of the collectors instead of their primary demographic of children. >:oP

I don't know about your stores, but all mine saw each and every wave of DOTM that was released and STILL haven't gotten rid of them all yet.

Only things that didn't get released by Hasbro in the West were the final four DOTM figures (three Deluxes and a Human Alliance set), which, compared to the sheer amount that did come out and still lingers to this day, is not that large a quantity by comparison.

Not when the older collectors consist of less than 10% of those who buy Hasbro's product. Take us away and Hasbro still survives. :P

Oh, boo hoo! You think everyone else is as rich as you to be able to do that? Really? Some of us can only dream of getting a completed store bought main line, or even half of one. Others would GLADLY be in your position. You were able to buy every single available toy, and even ones from foreign markets, and you expect those of us less fortunate to feel SORRY for you?

Nicezzz!!!

Very good Hasbro!

I'm getting them for sure. The legion class figures are pretty decent, especially the commander figures.

And for the rant guy a page back, Hasbro has a reason to not make a lot of solid combiners. The way 3rd party transformers developers work is totally different then Hasbro/Takara.
So I don't even know why you rant, you can stick all your money in the coming 3rd party figures, and there are a lot coming and expensive as hell.

I do hope Hasbro will go over the top with these legion/commander combiners and make like at least 5 of 'm. Just skip a few figures no one wants and use the slots for moar combiners pls.

I totally agree.The reason, however, this will never change is because Hasbro doesn't care about us "old" collectors, they care about people like my little brother that will buy anything that has Trasnformers on it. These are the people they care about. They want to put out as much crap as they can, as cheap as they can, to make the most money. Of course, they will still "throw us a bone" every now and then, like a masterpiece to keep us happy, but thats about it. Seriously, out of the 6 or so masterpieces coming out this year, not counting Soundwave, Red Alert, or Sideswipe(they were technically last year) how many do you think we will see? I think Soundwave has been rumored for July, and probably one more at christmas. As far as the third party gold coming out, I think we should just count our blessings that Hasbro isn't shutting these people down legally.
