    I'm glad I got my wave 2 for Deluxes and Voyager. I'm still going to stores and finding lots of people who rant that wave 2 is sold out everywhere.

    my first combiner was the BH Abominus which had the limbs this way, so it's the way I prefer to display my POTP Abominus.
    I find it amusing the BH version changed the positions of the arms and legs.

    Indeed. What makes the white hand feels more out of place is that Hasbro could just mold the hands with black plastic, since those hands are separate parts and could be done easily.

    This is what I'm doing. With the new Predacons being Voyager-sized, I don't want the Dinobots to be physically dwarfed by their foes.

    I've always preferred this configuration, I never really paid much attention to his "correct" arrangement of limbs so when I got G1 Abominus a number of years ago, I put them together with Sinnertwin and Cutthroat as Arms and Blot and Rippersnapper as legs because it looked good and made sense to me. So I didn't even think twice when I got BH Abominus and that was the intended arrangement.

    Take a hair dryer and just heat up the fins a little. You can shape them very easily. I finally took a few minutes today to do it.

    Went to take a picture during sunset, but by the time I finished my drink it got too dark. :lol  I figured that I might as well show my appreciation for having this guy. He's not the best, but I wanted him and I don't regret having him. It's been a while since I have held a Leader toy, and it certainly is fun to feel the heft behind them.

    For the clearer pictures, I figured that the crowning of a new head honcho should involve other lines in the trilogy... and maybe another one before even it. I would like all toys involved pristine for such a picture, so I just gotta grab some supplies.

    I've always found it odd that the "official" formation for Abominus made Cutthroat a leg, when he's got those big stick out wings.
