Seibertron.com staff member robofreak found and purchased the Target exclusive Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising Abominus set today in Tempe, Arizona. The set features all five Cyberverse Legions Class Terrocons: Hun-Grrr, Windrazor, Rippersnapper, Blight, and Twinstrike. Each figure comes in different deco compared to the mass retail release including some translucent plastics. Happy hunting!

I.
Cannot.
WAIT.

I haven't had any of the TerrorPreds in hand yet, and I'm really looking forward to the box set.

I'm glad that they look decidedly less pastel-shade in hand. I'm SUPER excited. :grin:

That box is excessively large...

Not liking the colors or use of clear plastics, so I went and got the regular release Terrorcons (sans Hun-Gurrr) off HTS, since I can't find them ANYWHERE.

I agree that the box is completely ridiculous, but it looks pretty good, and the translucent bits look pretty spiffy to me. And as an added bonus, it's $5(+tax) cheaper buying the box set. :lol: Makes it an easy decision for me!

$25, which is $5 less than buying them individually carded.

It's nice to be able to get the other three terrorcons without jumping through hoops. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to see them at retail outside of this set. Also, Noideaforaname I have an extra Hun-grrr if you are interested. Leave me an email if you like.

Let's cut to the chase, does it come with instructions on how to combine the figures?

Ehhhh... don't get too excited... :BANG_HEAD:

These figures feel incredibly CHEAP. :-x My Rippersnapper (individually bought from HTS), for example, has a very loose head piece - it's on a swivel, and just pops off constantly. #-o

I really want to like this set, but the quality is amazingly poor. :-( Generally, you see this with all the Legion classes - sometimes they're solid, other times they're pretty broken. For example, Legion Wheeljack - I have one where the legs pop off and will not stay on, and the other copy is just fine. :BANG_HEAD:

HasTak really blew it with this scale. I can forgive the diminutive size, but the Legion figures (overall) are not good, reliable quality. They're incredibly fragile, and like I mentioned, the joints aren't always well-attached.

Abominus was the only combiner I had as a kid, so I'll still get this set for nostalgia. But I won't be getting a second set to keep sealed/display. I'm very disappointed with these figures, after waiting for so long. :sad:

I've heard about the issue with the heads popping off. From the consistency of it, I would assume it's a design flaw, not a QC thing.

And I've had no issues with quality of the recent Legion figures; I think they're fantastic, in fact. Most of them have better quality than most of the deluxes they've given us since the beginning of the PRiD line! Sounds like you've just had a touch of bad luck with your Legion Wheeljack, but that's also an easy fix, just apply some clear nail polish to the ball part of the ball joint.

If anything, HasTak has really blown it out of the park with the Legion/Commander things. The quality has been pretty reliable, and I've heard very few complaints outside of your own, they really aren't fragile as long as you don't do something you obviously shouldn't be doing (though, obviously I can't speak for the Terrorpreds in particular, not having any of them and knowing only what I've heard from reviews and others), and the latter is a QC thing and can happen from time to time in any size class.

Thanks for the reply - I've heard of the nail polish trick but haven't tried it yet. Not really looking forward to buying nail polish to fix a design flaw or QC issue... :roll:

I think you're mistaken about the Legions/Commanders. Did you do a 2 yr old test? :roll: My kid can destroy the Legions/Commanders in SECONDS. :shock: The Deluxes stay in one piece. It speaks of the fragility of the lines, as I commented about earlier. Put frankly, there's less plastic and thinner plastic joints on the small figures - it's not a matter of opinion, but a simple matter of physics. Less mass = less solidity. :D

And I'm not even talking about snapping pieces - luckily, that hasn't happened yet. But the Wheeljack in question was only $3 (FiveBelow), so I wonder if it had something to do with the quality of products sent to the discount shops. Maybe it's coincidence, but I wonder... :-?

Anyway, I will try the nail polish trick with Rippersnapper, and see if it helps. Thanks for the suggestion! :BOWDOWN:

You'd give them to a 2-year-old? They say 5+ for a reason :roll:

Yuck....the original release colourways are waaaay better. That baby blue on Sinnertwin and Cutthroat looks cheesy. The clear plastics don't do it for me either.

"Adult supervision required"? :roll: Your comment says much about you ;) - you don't so much "give" your TF's to your 2 yr old, as much as they TAKE your TF's from you! :lol:

They're Mini-cons, not Legions. ;)

Reports of the Target exclusive Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising figures appearing at retail started circulating a couple of weeks ago, and now we thanks to Seibertron.com Bounti76 have finally have some photographic proof. Bounti76 picked up Voyager Dark Steel, Deluxe Sky Lynx, and the Cyberverse Smokescreen vs. Cindersaur set up at a Super Target in Centerville, Utah.

Seibertron.com staffer robofreak picked up the Predacons Rising Abominus set last week.

I want those two. They're the ones I'm betting on to be in Predacons rising tv movie.
who needs grimwing, when you have an epic Darksteal!

Dumb question, but where in Target are these things located? With the rest of the TF stuff, or in it's own little section/endcap?
