I loved the character as a kid. Here's to hoping.
Would not mind it. I have all five figure but only two of the accessories and no combining parts.
its a good combiner i have one but i pieced him together took about 6 months i recommend doing the same get all the combiner parts first though
Didn't Hasbro say as part of the recent Q & As that they have no intention of reissuing any more G1 combiners?
I'd rather have Defensor or Menasor over Abominus. Wouldn't mind a new Computron either!
Last I heard, Abominus and Computron had large amounts of their toolings lost/destroyed over the years.
So I wouldn't get too excited at the possibly of seeing them again outside of the high end KOs.
yeah,didn't hasbro/Takara say most of the G-1 mastermolds were broke,stolen or damaged beyond repair.
Personally I'd love to see the rest of the G-1 usa combiners get updated homage molds in the energon 5-in-1 style.
Sigh. How sad. I'd LOVE to get a reissue Menasor & Abominus!
Ugh, I'd rather they WEREN'T in the Energon style. Original G1 or classics updates only please.
I'd love for it to, but I'm for the reissuing of G1 combiners in general. (Monstructor, anyone?)
Right, those Energon ones are ugly as hell. Only worth owning if there's a third party upgrade available for them. That's just my opinion.
I'd buy a reissue of Abominus if it happened. I'd like a Menasor, too. Why can't a multi-million dollar company do what a Chinese KO company does?
Abominus and Piranacon are my 2 favorite G1 combiners. I already have an original, but it would be nice if other people got the chance to own it affordably.
I'd love an Abominus...But I can't afford the prices some want for it ;_;
I'd love if Power Core does a Monster set, even if PC isn't the best set of TFs out there, it'd be nice to know that they at least remembered them...
I have a complete Abominus already, but I'd buy a reissue one if they release it. It's a highly underrated combiner. I like it even more than Bruticus as a matter of fact, because Bruticus has that weird hip thingie where the legs are too spaced apart and it isn't as obvious with Abominus.
IIRC, that answer had the usual "at this time" tag on the end of it, so it's not outside the realm of possibility at some point in the future...but probably not likely. And the general consensus seems to be that HasTak don't have the molds for any of the G1 combiners except Predaking, Piranacon and Bruticus, with the latter two showing significant wear, so there's likely not much they actually could reissue even if they wanted to.
And I'd definitely like to see an updated Terrorcon (and Technobot, for that matter) set, using the Energon peg-socket combination system. That system worked great for achieving a stable connection between the limb and torso figures; much better than the current PCC system.
takara please encore abominus! please please please. Btw encore a few others to.
Hasbro G1Combiners we'll miss you dearly
It's not as if G1 combiner reissues fly off shelves, is it?
I see where you're coming from, but when was the last time one was actually released at mass retail? Most of them are online or collectors club exclusives. The only combiner sets we do get at retail are the godawful Energon repaints ad nauseum.
(IMO PCCs aren't much better but that's an argument for another thread)
Id love for FansProject to make combiners in the Energon style with accessories to make them more FansProject style so you could have the option of having them Energon or...Awesome.
Fixed. Insecticons and Perceptor are pretty telling of that.
