    Those gator wrestling pics are perfect. Outback seems like such a solid bot, been eagerly checking brickseek waiting for him to show up here.

    IMO the Terrorcons are one of the best combiner teams that's come out since the Prime Wars Trilogy started. I love how vibrant the colors are and every figure holds their own as a standalone piece. 20180711_144049.jpg 20180711_145657.jpg

    I don't have any pictures on me, but I paired TR Fangry with Hun-gurrr and found that it works pretty well. The shade of purples reasonably match, and Fangry seems to be a fit for the Terrorcons' monster theme.

    Picked up a POTP Grimlock today since he was on sale, along with all the other Transformers stuff, at a local toy shop

    I like him a lot more than I expected. Or rather, I've grown to like him. Out of the box, he's a bit underwhelming. But after playing with him for a while I quite enjoy him. Even the dinosaur mode grew on me, which I didn't expect at all

    Dammit, @Vexwing, you just convinced me to buy Outback, whom I was not originally intending to purchase. o_O :rolleyes: :D :cool:

    I also have POTP Slug.
    Haven't even opened him yet.
    Don't know if i should get the whole set.
    I am a dinobots fan, so i'm tempted to get them.
    But Volcanicus form is so so thin and arms are so wide.
    Just ordered all the Terrorcons since he is the best combiner from POTP release.
    Also want to make an all fembots combiner with Elita, Moonracer and Novastar.
    Thinking of making 2 fembots out of other transformers.
    We miss a combiner Chromia and another one.
    Can be Arcee or Windblade. Need to repaint one of the combiner limb and pop off the head and pop on Arcee or Windblade on it. Same with Chromia.
    Ordered Groove to convert into Chromia. But looking at all the reviews of these 2, they share nothing alike.
    Will be hard to do it.

    How are the joints on yours? One of mine was a bit loose at the elbows, which causes some issues in combined mode. Hope the robot torso halves on yours stay together better than they do on either of mine.

    All the joints on my copy are pretty solid, thankfully. Chest tabs together pretty well, and no looseness in the arms or legs. The right hip joint is a bit looser than the left, but not detrimentally so

    Stopped by Wal-mart today. Got to complete the Terrorcons!

    Hun-Gurr was the only one left to get. Managed to spot him by seeing the Abominus side box pic from down the aisle.

    And with that, all I need it Wave 3 Legends and Novastar.

    I found myself actually saying "Yeeessss" aloud. Nice work!

    Don't remind me :(  Silas/"Cyrus" Breakdown has been a Holy Grail for me ever since my first time seeing that version of the mould.

    Elita One is an epic figure indeed. Great idea, folding away the hands! Gonna have to do that with my Elita.

    I wish I could find myself a Moonracer... You can never have too many Fembots!

    Right?

    I like my POTP Dinobots for what they are. I don't have the budget to buy 3rd party or MP.

    In terms of the fembot combiner, I'm hoping HasTak does combiner dwluxes for Greenlight and Lancer. I'm fine with the CHUG Arcee and Chromia I have.

    If you do customize your own I would love to see your work.

    So let me get this straight....

    Prime Masters with armor:
    • Wave 1: Liege Maximo, Micronus, Vector Prime
    • Wave 2: Alchemist Prime, Alpha Trion
    • Wave 3: Megatronus, Quintus Prime, Solus Prime
    Prime Masters without armor:
    • Onyx Prime (Predaking)
    • Prima (Punch/Counterpunch)
    • Amalgamous Prime (SDCC)
    • Nexus Prime (SDCC)
    • Thirteenth Prime (SDCC)
    So, unless something changes, it's impossible to "Catch 'em All" if you can't/won't purchase Predaking and the 2018 SDCC set. Oh, and you also have to find P/CP and all the armored Prime Masters, which isn't a given, considering the rampant distribution problems with this line.

    Awesome.

    Out of curiosity, why do you want to catch them all? They don't seem to do much. I...I don't understand.

    Fair question. I don't know. I'm not normally a completionist, but this seems different somehow. And I like the armored guys. They're fun to fiddle with.
