We finally have official images of Hasbro's upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Target Exclusive Abominus gift set! Just as the original solicitation indicated the set features no additional molding but does come in exclusive deco. Also of note, the packaging bears the phrase "Predacons Rising" in additional to the standard Beast Hunters logo. Hasbro will be releasing a Transformers Prime Beast Hunters DVD of the same name in October. Check out the images mirrored below courtesy of TFW2005 user juise.

The set includes:

  • Hun-Gurr
  • Twinstrike
  • Blight
  • Rippersnapper
  • Windrazor

And Twinstrike (sinnertwin) is mis-transformed with the alt mode hands sticking out

I ain't too keen on these. I would've got them had they been more detailed/closer to G1 colours, but they're not.

I think I'll stick with the original releases and see what Takara is going to come out with.

And his feet aren't turned around.

And everyone but Windrazor seems to have the wrong weapon.

But whatevs. We've had bad stock photos before.

I'm hoping I can actually find all the mass-retail versions (though given how my Target has only recently gotten Wave 1 started, my hopes aren't too high), but this is a fine alternative if that plan doesn't work out.

Surprised it isn't vastly different from the other version. Half-expected Hun-Grr to be more G1 and the others based on Shattered Glass/Technobots or Monstructor or something.

I'm guessing this is going to turn out like Bruticus for me.

This is what Bruticus felt like for me:

Hasbro is doing a combiner!
...But it looks terrible.

But the stock photos were badly transformed!
...But it still isn't all that great, even when transformed properly.

But at least it's being released as a whole set, to make them easier to get!
...With bizarre, non-G1 colors.

And I'm afraid that's what this will feel like as well.

As separate figures, these are cool. They fail as a combiner though; just looks like something a fan came up with. And the fact that the gift set is essentially unchanged from the original releases is the icing on the cake.

Hasbro has wowed us lately with some of their 30th anniversary releases, I'm ready to be wowed by a really solid combiner!!!

abominus looks like crap but i like the terrorcons so ill probably pick this up to keep in the box depending on the price. A shame cause ob their own each figure is awesome but the combined mode is horrible, one day hasbro will figure out how to do combiners again.

I honestly don't understand the hate that is going around about their combined form. It's a flippin' Legends-scaled figure for Chrissakes, you can't make something that small and expect modes to be as gorgeous as standard Deluxe or above.

Agreed. Not to mention it didn't have to be a combiner at all but just 5 separate Legion figures that happened to have similar names and appearances of Abominus's parts.

I'm really happy with these guys. They make for a great set of Legion figures and are also a pretty cool combiner (that even have weapons that can combine). I'll hopefully be able to get all the individual Legions as well as eventually get this set as well.

Honestly, I'm just happy to see more combiners. If for whatever reason (perhaps cost reasons) they can't make many combiners in larger scales it'd be great if they can make more in the Cyberverse scale, whether that's with Legions, Commanders and Legions or even all Commanders.

I didn't know what colors these were going to be before reading this but I was really hoping for Shattered Glass colors. Just for some kind of modern version of Computron if only in color.

Honest question, why were people expecting SG colors? There's no precedent for SG decos at mass retail, after all.

I suspected, if it was going to be a drastically different deco and not just a similar-but-different one (as they ended up doing, and it looks FANTASTIC by the way, translucency and all!), it'd be an homage to another beastbot combiner, like Monstructor.

My guess is due to a redeco of Twinstrike in what kinda looked like SG Sinnertwin colors appearing briefly in the "Hunt the Beasts" interative game on Hasbro's website.

Seen here right after the 30 second mark:

Hun-Grrr himself seems a touch more Shattered Glass/G1 Scattershot rather than G1 Hun-Grrr, given the lack of dark gray, white not being as prominent, red instead of magenta, and red arms, feet, chest and, er, hips.

Remember those micromaster style guys that KB had, The ones that were homages to the G1 combiners? they were smaller than legends & were good combiners. It is possible to take any size figure and make a good combiner if you take the time & effort to do it,but hasbro is to damn lazy these days so they just slapped them together & ship it. But these days it doesnt matter what size they are, the last few combiners sucked. FoC Bruticus, the PCCs & ROTF Devastator all sucked, the individual figures for the most part were good but the combined forms were horrible. Hasbro is to cheap & lazy these days to make a good combiner. And remember if we keep accepting half assed crap thats all we're going to be stuck with for now on, if more people complained about the figures then maybe hasbro would get the hint and try a little harder.

Those were reissues of G1 micromaster combiners and they had alot of extra pieces to help them forma nice combiner.

for what they are and what they come with i like the abominus set. i do wish they would come with some extra pieces to make them look better like G1 combiners did. but im happy to get some combiners.

As long as they arnt more PCC's.

No. Just, no. Stop right there. Did you ever buy any of those? Did you honestly believe that those were new/modern toy molds?

Those KB Toys Micromaster Combiners were anything but new. They were 1992 molds rereleased from Japan, and had as much combiner kibble as G1 Devastator.

Not to mention ZERO articulation outside of the shoulders and head, and that's only happenstance due to the toys' engineering rather than any forethought on their playability.

If anything, they were a step backwards compared to what we've gotten here. If you want parts-forming, inarticulate bricks for combiners, stop asking for new molds and go buy the 1984-1992 toys, cuz that's apparently what you're looking for.

But we have here is a modern day combiner formed with no parts-forming kibble, fully articulated, and visually recognizable as to who it's meant to resemble. Any valid criticisms of it would be in part due to its small size as a Cyberverse Legion class combiner. Any higher expectations for it are asking for way too much since it would take a larger size class to satisfy them. But that's not what these are and is not what we're getting. Don't like it? Fine. Don't like it because it's not GEEWUN? Tough.

I couldn't agree more with your sentiment, Sabrblade. Seriously, the ONLY other combiner with three near-perfect modes in this scale was rotf Devastator, and it wasn't really articulated. And this is a HUGE step up from that. The only other combiners that HasTak have done that would be decidedly "better" would be the RiD/Car Robots and Energon/Super Link gestalts. Those were QUITE good, I agree, but they also had components that were bigger, which allowed greater intricacy. However, Build King was...kind of awkward in practice, with lots of kibble getting in the way of articulation, and Rail Racer, while AMAZING in combined mode, had to sacrifice the proper size of the individual robot modes.

Now, I'm sure we can all agree that FoC Bruticus is far from perfect, but he's hardly a train wreck. The official transformation is a train wreck, but there are PLENTY of ways to transform him to be both articulate and great looking, I've seen at least a few ways to make him look IDENTICAL to in-game shots and poses. The main problem with him was the weird budget thing that happened with the FoC deluxes, but they're getting away from that.

Please stop citing the G1 combiners and trying to say they're somehow "better," because they CLEARLY are not. They are BRICKS! :lol: They have no articulation, they partsform like HELL, and while I DO like G1 gestalts, every single modern combiner is years ahead of any of the G1 guys, for all of the obvious reasons.

Not sure I'd say this is an improvement, but it does look good. I'd say the best thing about this set is the convenience of not having to hunt down the individual figures. Instead, you just have the minor inconvenience of travelling to a Target store. (Brit talkin'. :BANG_HEAD:)

Target exclusives do sometimes make it to the UK. Often as Toys R Us exclusives. Or maybe Argos.

This gestalt is obviously all over the place with its lack of posibility and scale and whatever. But I don't really care, it looks like a ton of fun to mess around with. I love the fact that each of them have so many different peg holes, so you can create something that, who knows, might even look better than the Hasbrah recommended serving. :CON:

Well, it doesn't look to have the right kind of elbows, and I dont think the head is on any sort of rotating joint, plus the figures themselves are not poseable. But with all the possible areas to combine them, maybe it can achieve normal elbows. And yeah, even then, its abominus, its not a big deal if its got monster arms instead.

My response: These are Legions, not Deluxes.

Why would anyone think about Legions on the same level as one would a standard-sized figure?

#-o I was just stating that despite its lack of poseability, its still cool. Calm down. It would generally be desireable to have the most poseability, which is why so many people complained about the ppcs not having decent limbs. It could be the same reason people complained about other gestalts like Bruticus not having hands. This is the first legion gestalt, and so theres no "why would people think this" when there hasn't been any trend set.

Silly response, my friend. Don't need to take my issues with the figure so seriously.

Not any more, though. The new Legends are somewhere between Scout and Cyberverse Commander class. #-o

Back in the day they were. Now, "Legends" is used for the Generations 2-packs and are sized between Legion and Commander.
