Is that another deluxe Seeker I see on the left side in red and orange Predicus colors? Who do you suppose that is? Probably see a figure for him at the con.

If that's the case then what mold will they be using? A combiner wars mold? They said that they've retired the classics mold didn't they?

So Predacus is trying to grab my purse away, Ramhorn shakes his fist at me for some reason, and they're both puffy as hell. Is Pat Lee back or something?

Is there something wrong with the art?


Either way I doubt Pat Lee will ever be allowed to be near Transformers or heck any legit business again after what he did.

The problem is the puffiness. It's freaking INSANE. Remember the Micromasters mini-series? This is that, but worse. It be fine if it weren't SO. DAMN. PUFFY.

I'm not sure how your supposed to draw a blocky G1 transformer without making it puffy or making up a design.

It's Terrorsaur, through and through. But is it from Air Raid, or the Seekers?

Interesting that the art even depicts Predacus with a copy of breakdowns hand for nosecone Ramhorn, wonder if the nosecone mold didn't have an applicable hand available, since the he's supposed to come with a new one :-?

He comes with two pairs of hand/foot pieces, like what the Unite Warriors sets have been doing.

Could you clarify? I meant that maybe predacus doesn't use brawls hand/foot gun - the one tied to that mold - since nosecone is coming out as a foot for computron, and that mold might have the special foot designated for that mold.

Or do you mean that they are using two copies of two hand/foot guns? 2 of breakdowns and 2 of skydives (tarantulas' foot kinda looks like airraids hand/foot gun, but I thought he was using rooks hand/foot gun)?

Other than the Dreamwave-y reaching, this reminds me a bit of the BW card/box art from the '90s. I like it.

Looks to me like it's meant to be Terrorsaur using the ROTF Breakaway mold.

Looking at the art, the combiner fingers are clawed. Think the ones in the toy pics are just placeholders?

No, that's just artistic license; I doubt funpub would have put that in the budget >:oP

If they make an Abominus combiner, I hope they make new monster molds and not just vehicles with fake monster paint. As Death, I prefer REAL monsters....
