    Of all the PE sets that deserve to be knocked-off, this is the one. It's practically an in-house KO, anyway, considering they've not bothered to make new guns.

    Easy pass.

    I swear this setup has been retooled more than the Classics Seeker mold has been retooled at this point.

    Nice, but don't know why Abominus needs a second gun, but hey it's there if you want to give him more firepower.

    You know when I think of a giant robot made out of five monsters, I think melee weapon, You know like a giant axe, maybe a halbard. Hell even a giant fucking claw. Not two generic guns, Even the feet are underwelming, I get by with the normal feet by just turning them around and attaching the extra hands with the fings stricking straight out so they can act like toes. The only reason to get this set would just be for the hands.

    Fuckin' A, man.
    Seriously! This and Starscream being Just The Gunhands/Gunfeet Again is a serious failure. OTOH I guess PE needs to keep the lights on, and these will probably sell pretty well to people who want dat color-coordination...

    Technically these are the second use of the Ginrai guns not the third use of the bruticus guns (yes there are mold differences)

    I've never liked PE's combiner upgrades. The hands never really look great as fists or holding weapons and the feet are way too huge. The feet shouldn't be the same size as the leg-bots themselves. I think hasbro got the size of the feet just about right, unfortunately they put huge holes in them for the primemaster gimmick and didn't give them enough heal support unless you attach the extra hands which just looks silly.

    Well that’s kinda why they put that hole in the back of the foot to add support.

    Be careful for anyone wanting to purchase a KO version. The PE ones sold on eBay stressed the connectors for Rippersnapper and Blot before I figured the pegs were slightly too fat. Since these two robots have very thin plastic at the pegging point, be really careful and be prepared to sand them down.

    I just got Blot Cutthroat and Sinnertwin from Canada's Ages 3 and Up for 20 USD a pop plus 10 shipping to the U.S. Saved me the hassle and I got them early. :D 

    Will be getting the P.E. set for sure since I pretty much missed out on the entire Combiner Line and 3rd party upgrades.

    Consider me underwhelmed... Those guns should've been gray, and are way too big for Hun-grrr in bot mode. Needed to be a new mold, with one of them smaller for Hun-grrr to hold.

    Those hands and feet aren't right either. Swing and a miss. This should've been an easy set to get right, Abominus doesn't need much. Just lazy really

    personally, while i would love a proper 3rd party upgrade, i was too lazy to wait and this was pretty friggin easy to do.

    I do definitely like the TDW hands and feet more than the PE ones, but I'm suuuuper uninterested in the rest of the upgrades with those sets. Wish they would sell just the hands and feet for reduced prices.

    Honestly, from the very first time I laid eyes on him, I always wondered why in the hell Abominus was wielding a gun and not some sort of melee weapon like a sword (preferably a kilij or ikakalaka), pike or halberd or even perhaps giant claws. Giving him a melee weapon would suit the image of him as this brutal animalistic brawler better than a massive gun and would also be another excellent way to contrast him against Computron, whom I think a gun suits perfectly (since Computron takes a methodical and calculated approach to combat, a gun would suit him as he's the sort who would take precise aiming and shots at the enemy).

    Surprised they didn’t do a new head accurate to the cartoon, 

    still picking this up though, the feet and hands give him much better proportions
