Abominus was one of the last combiners I needed. When I finally got him, I was surprised that I waited so long to get him: he's definitely one of the best combiners there is. I love the way your pics show off how amazingly articulated Hun-grr is, and how that articulation carries over to the combined Abominus mode.
Computron is wonderful as well, of course. Excellent alt modes for all combiner members and a perfectly coordinated color scheme.

There're a few that still haven't received the gallery treatment yet. I usually do galleries of G1 figures when they become relevant again with new versions. Abominus and Metroplex are great examples. I did Abominus because of the Beast Hunters version. Generations Metroplex will give me a reason to do G1 Metroplex, Metrotitan, Encore Metroplex, Trypticon, and Gigastorm.
Off the top of my head, some other G1 figures that are long overdue for some love are Reflector, Defensor/Protectobots, the Deluxe Insecticons, the large Decepticon Headmasters (Skullcruncher, Weirdwolf, and Mindwipe), the small Autobot and Decepticon Headmasters (Nightbeat, Siren, Hosehead, Fangry, Squeezeplay, and Horri-Bull), the large Autobot and Decepticon Targetmasters (Slugslinger, Triggerhappy, Misfire, Pointblank, Crosshairs, and Sureshot), Sixshot, Quickswitch, the Autobot Powermasters (Getaway, Joyride, and Slapdash), Pretenders Gunrunner and Roadgrabber, Ultra Pretenders Skyhammer and Roadblock, small Autobot Pretenders (Pincher, Doubleheader and Longtooth), and there's a lot of the Micromaster bases/stations and Action Masters that still need some love.
And then, of course, there are still UK and Japanese exclusive G1 toys that haven't gotten the gallery treatment yet either.

Also makes me wish there was some sort of Classics version of them, HasTak or third party.

Next best thing to owning a Computron is having these nice pictures. I just wish my Abominus set survived my childhood in better condition! Oh well, it's nice to see Abominus making a come-back in the modern toys!
