    They need TJ to do their pictures! The light glare on the box is inexcusable for a professional use picture.

    Slight repaints? Eh, I'll stick with the retail.

    I don't like the AllSpark blue on Sinnertwin.

    I foresee plenty of broken-off Twinstrike leg armors in the future.

    I love the transparent plastic they used in the giftset, also the boxart is awesome looking.

    So instead of Prime: Beast Hunters, the box says Beast Hunters: Preadcons Rising.


    Is this the first indicator that "Predacons rising" might be a subset line?

    It could be taken that way, yes. At the very least with the blue packaging and the additional artwork it seems to be a rebranding of the line (again)

    I prefer the look of the original G1 toys, as blocky as they are.

    This new Abominus looks terrible yet the original still looks very cool.

    Maybe if they made a new Commander class Hun-Grr which could still combine with the Legends Terrorcons, it would look much better. I just don't like the body being the same size as the limbs.

    Why can't they just make combiners with partsforming anymore? Scramble City combiners look much better. This looks just like 5 robots melded together.

    I really hope that they release all of the figures normally with the non-translucent color schemes we saw in earlier pics. Because this just looks...AWFUL.

    Man, that thing is a mess. And not even a hot mess.

    Oh well. TFs is saving me a ton of money this year, which I can use to get my HT Avengers.

    Looking at this stuff.....It appears that TFs are just done for me.

    Ok, glad this doesn't have like an irresistable G1 colors Hun-grr or something. I like the retail colors better, and I already have Sinnertwin and Hun-grr, so yay!

    The rebranded package is what is interesting...
