    I've got an opportunity to get one with only a few missing pieces in a trade. Anyone have anything to say about him? Positive, negative, gamekilling flaws, accessories to look for, gps and the like?

    be very careful...this guy has been KO'ed and the combiner parts look almost the same to the KO ones but will not work on the original transformers....I got jipped in a trade once when i got a combiner KO body with real TF limbs...feet plates and hands were too loose to really be of any good when forming the abominus robot.

    I think Abominus is a pretty cool toy, ehs a solid combiner and doesn't afraid of being neon.

    Hun-grr is a very articulated figure for its time.

    It is a good combiner. Hun-grr is an awesome toy, but others leave a lot to be desired when in robot mode. I like the alt modes, though.

    As a side note, Abominus has the dubious distinction of possibly being the most unintelligent TF created so far.

    His Japanese Tech Specs gives him an intelligence rating of 1.

    Missing pieces can be very expensive, especially the small guns for the individual bots.

    Yeah he's pretty cool but look out for yellowing on the Abominus head piece and Hun-grr's body. Possibly Rippersnapper too.

    The combining parts are fairly easy/cheap to find but some of the smaller guns for the limb robots can be a bit tricky to get hold of. Pretty much standard G1 combiner situation.

    I recently picked up a set of the limbs complete on worn cards for 35$, , the terracons and technobots are amoung the easiest combiners other then the constructicons to find. just be patient for a good deal and be wary of those bootleg parts, most of them are slightly shinier then the originals but still fairly dificult to pick out without an original to compare them to.

    ^ wow blitzwing. Wish I had that kind of luck. Sealed vintage stuff is beautiful. but usuallly out of my budget.

    I'm happy with my abominous . Its relatively larger than previous year combiner teams.


    If you like robot monsters. This atrocity belongs in your home.

    Hun-Grrr is fantastic. The other Terrorcons and combining into Abominus is merely a bonus.

    Great toy, lots of fond memories of this one for me. Including using Cut-throat as a fill-in for Laserbeak on my Megatron toy.

    Abominus was my first complete combiner and I love his crazy colors. He's also, thanks to Hun-Grrr, the most posable figure of his kind.

    Giving a plus for Abominus too. Him and Computron are great solid combiners.
