Beast Hunters Abominus Target Exclusive Giftset Images

Some official images of the Target Exclusive Beast Hunters Abominus giftset have been released by Hasbro and have been brought to our attention by 2005 Boards member juise. The giftset collects the five Legion Class Cyberverse Predacons Hun-Gurr, Rippersnapper, Windrazor, Blight and Twinstrike in a single boxed set. The five Predacons, compared to their initial releases, feature some translucent plastic parts and translucent purple weapons.

You might also notice that the packaging for Predacon Abominus is a little different to the usual Beast Hunters packaging - it is mostly blue compared to the grey / silver of the majority of Beast Hunters packaging, and the line seems to have undergone another rebranding to add "Predacons Rising" as a subtitle to Beast Hunters. In a pleasing move though, packaging art is back! A large piece of art of the combined giant Abominus adorns the right hand side of the box.

Check out the images attached to this news post.

i am buying the fuck out of that
Protoman
So there is some nice clear plastics used here this time around.... interesting
Sideways77
Slight repaints? Eh, I'll stick with the retail.

I don't like the AllSpark blue on Sinnertwin.
Hot Shot.
I foresee plenty of broken-off Twinstrike leg armors in the future.

Yeah I thought that was a nice touch.
The Bucket Kitten
I love the transparent plastic they used in the giftset, also the boxart is awesome looking.
Shatterpoint
A "Predacons Rising" boxset?

Spoilers for the series finale?
Fallout
oh man, that box is nice too. i'm going to be displaying these guys MIB, it seems.
baggzey23
look at all that packaging for something that small
Lazerwave
I wonder if it counts Canadian Targets.
miscreant
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?
Deceptigtar
man that thing is a mess.
Mechafire
Neat, but I'll stick with the single releases.

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.
Murasame
Why can't they just make combiners with partsforming anymore? Scramble City combiners look much better. This looks just like 5 robots melded together.
Warpshard
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.
Silk Spectre
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.
Anguirus
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...
soymonk
Ah... not a fan of the translucent plastic.
Lody666
Really liking the boxart but I will stick with the single releases isnce I have two already

Was expecting a bit more than just a recolored release but oh well
Blitz.
Kinda think it looks like crap.

Like I threw some toys together that clearly were not meant to combine and just BS'd people saying the heads were claws. If I never knew they combined I would have honestly assumed it was a fan mode and they were glued together.

If the guns became forearms, hands and feet i guess it could be saved maybe add a chest shield and I'd buy it... get on that 3rd party

I like the fact they made all 5 unique and I think on their own they are fine but that combined mode looks like crap
orangeitis
I sincerely hope that Sinnertwinstrike's leg armor was molded to where there isn't any stress on it during transformation. Cause these guys I'll want to fiddle with a lot.
BaltMatrix
Going to be buying that set. But man, they need to fire their photographer.
charsdc2
Looks awesome, might have to get a few sets!
daitarn red
how autobots beat abominus with out their own combier team
seeker311
One of the few beast hunters item ill buy
Obsidian X
I am not a fan of transparent plastic, unless it's on swords axes and claws and stuff like that. Good to know what the deal was with this though, now I can pick up the single releases when I get the chance instead.

Kind of like the packageing though and the Abominus art looks great.
daitarn red
i got idea - smokescreen sneaking in decepticons hq to steal abomius blue prints and autobots build own preaabots combier team

The Dinobots.

/wishful thinking
Wheeljack_Prime
The way the line is rebranded like this, I'd put money on Abominus showing in the Predacons Rising movie.
Flexx Ark
Bought on site for reasons I haven't figured out yet.....
Solrac333
Looks hideous.

They have done, they're all out already
Shark Jumper
I'll make regular Abominus, but if this is on clearance or super sale I might consider it. My interest levels are very low.
tikgnat
That looks like an unholy mess.

I love it.
firehawc_69
So glad I waited for this set!
Noideaforaname
Kinda reminds me of certain Beast Wars figures that had a random mix of translucent and opaque plastic - Quickstrike, Buzzclaw, Tripredacus, Drill Bit, etc.

I prefer the retail release, particularly Sinnertwin and Cutthroat as they're less "candy-colored", but if I can't find them (and at the rate my Target is going I might not) these'll make an OK substitute.

Strongly suggests, to me anyway, that the BH line is NOT ending with everything we've seen so far. They're gonna show off a lot of new BH product at Botcon, just you watch.

Gives me a little hope that we might actually see Ironhide, Gears, and Frenzy get released afterall.
Soundwinder
I have Hun-Gurr already and I honestly don't... care about the combined form.

However, I want Rippersnapper and Blight. And I LIKE the clear colors. This'll depend heavily on price, and how soon they come out.

I also dig the weapons.

Gears?
Superquad7
Awesome. That package artwork presents the product SO much better than the current boxes.
Autovolt 127
They look like rock candy.

but yeah i'd rather own the retail versions. I do not like Clear plastic...i fear the breakage.
jestermon
It was always supposed to be a recolored version, when did they ever say anything different?

Think I will be skipping glad I got the singles, hope I find the other singles my WM employees locally cant tell the difference between commander and legions so there counts for legions are always drastically off thus none get ordered.
Xionis
I really wish Hasbro/Takara put as much effort into this as they did the latest release of Springer/Sandstorm. Honestly, that gestalt is a complete mess.
Nightrain
Forgive me, but that's an abomination.

Cancelled Ratchet remold.
GAUGE
Since this is the ONLY way I'll be able to buy all the Terrorcons, I don't mind buying this.

I just hope I can find the danged things.

Well, he is called ABOMINUS afterall.
