HA like they aren't going to buy them.

True, true. If there's one thing that I've learned about this fandom (and which perplexes me ENTIRELY), it's that people will rampantly hate on things, then buy it, then will often have an ENTIRELY different opinion. :lol: The implication being of course, that they didn't really hate the design to begin with. ;)


Those are usually just the sugar-rush posters still caught in the "collect'em all" phase of collecting.
The rest of us try to stay away from posting on fan messageboards as much as possible, keeping our wallets even tighter closed.

But this thing is so... ugh. I really do get that post-G1 movie feeling seeing this. It's like it's the late 80s again, and I'm in Woolworths looking at Monstercons that they just can't sell because they look ridiculous.

What "looks cool" on this combiner?
That's the question that only "claws instead of hands?" seems to be able to say so far.

So as a combiner... what looks cool about it?

Blot is quickly becoming my favorite. Cutthroat, not so much. >:oP

This is a great little group. Excited to get them all. Even without their combined form they're all pretty cool, and with it just makes it more exciting.

So do we know for sure the Target gift set will be a different color scheme, or are we just assuming? If that was already cleared up, I missed it.

I agree that this thing is a mess, even by the standards of gestalts with claw hands, but the Terrorcons hold a special place in my heart as the last G1 combiner team I found at retail, in 1990 no less, and I love smallish combiners, so I'll just buy any damn repaint of this whole team. Monstructor, Dinoking, Monstrous, whatever makes even the least little sense.

Don't get me wrong.
I don't hate this, I just wish it had a larger figure for the central bot.

As a matter of fact, I'll probably be buying 2 as my kid will dig this A LOT.

The brightly colored ones make the sinfully ugly Abominus... thing.

The dark one with orange on him is Predaking. Though, not the G1 Predaking who was also a combiner. He's not part of their set, just there for the hell of it in the pic.

"sinfully ugly" is a rather appropriate description for any guy named "Abominus" (except the SG guy, since his name's meant to be ironic). ;)

It's also probably intentional given how he and his components are supposed to be, you know, abominable. :P

Indeed. If any of these toys looked as friendly and inviting as the G1 Terrorcon toys did, it would be a tremendous shame. ;)

More organic, less boxy! Like a monster should be!

They look pretty organic to me, certainly moreso than the G1 Terrorcons, while still looking like them. And of course they're going to be a -little- angular, they're robots!

You be troooollin'? :lol: (I kid!)

What I meant was that they ARE more organic and less boxy compared to their G1 counterparts, and that this pleases me greatly. I suppose I could have been clearer about that.

I really like it. The redesign makes sense for the characters as well as being cheaper to produce. I've a soft spot for the Terrorcons being the the only G1 team I ever completed. Made a couple of other Scrambled combiners but that's not the same.

The new animal modes look awesome for all of them. Cutthroat's maybe a bit skinny, but he looks like a pirate bird now, and that's cool. The robots of all of them seem to have a little more character this time around. It's a wonder what proper limbs can do. I even mostly like the changes to Hun-Grr. Shame he's not the level of quality compared to the original, which at the time was one of the best toys around, but this guy seems very good for his size-class.

Since the retail release is pretty much G1 accurate colour-wise, I'd love a very different, unified look for the gift-set. Dark Energon versions or something? Terrorcon Predacons in the style of translucent purple Cliffjumper.

That's what I've been thinking myself, though they could certainly surprise us! Another possibility I've mentioned before would be a redeco as Monstructor? I'd very much welcome that!
