No, he doesn't.
Anyone else could look at your post and know you meant the the robot mode head.
Yes and no. Yes, because in the manga, there is a teaser of what looks like just a torso when Spike and the Quintesson are at the Mother Computer. And no, because we also see the rest of the team at the end of the manga.
And Dino King!
See my post on page 2.
It's gonna be a full Abominus. If it was just Hun-Gurr they'd have only shown his bot mode, not the full combiner.
As for future projects. I think Liokaiser has the best odds, but wouldn't discount a Battle Gaia or Guard City if they need more time.
I also wouldn't discount them doing something with Inferno, Elita, and Starscream. Not sure if that last one would include Buster/Hydra, but if you were holding out hope...you may finally be rewarded.
Unpopular opinion; it's going to be Shattered Glass Abominus followed by SG Computron
They have been going back and giving POTP Combiners better colors. SG in a niche in America. Literally, the only people who give a shit about Shattered Glass in Japan are the dudes that work at Trigger for some reason. It just makes no sense.
I understand that they're taking the time to make some of these 'older' combiners a little more flashy, which is nice, and I also understand they have the ability to do this quick since they already have all the molding and tooling for these characters, but man id give my t-cog for some new combiners. CW did some incredible things and those combiners still hold super well in 2020 as generations versions of those characters, but I do wish we saw some new molds, or even just some really dramatic new paint schemes; I saw someone suggest Battle Gaia earlier, that could be cool! Characters like Raiden, Dinoking, Monstructor, hell even Landcross would be insane, or a liokaiser with a proper 2 part torso would be cool. Even a wacky new road Caesar could be funny! And thats just the cannon g1 combiners minus the micromaster ones, let alone ones like bruticus maximus and constructicon maximus from the UT, or or what if we got a new version of Landfill from RID? Any of these characters would be amazing if they utilized the combiner wars system and got slick modern decos.
All I'm saying is they're tons of combiners who could use a generations treatment, so it feels a little dirty getting the same ones released again, even if they do come with extra flashy bits.
Uhh.. very wild speculation there....
I'm still waiting on a proper CHUG Star Saber. We almost had one when POTP had a Throne of the Primes vote campaign, but most everyone went for Optimus Primal... (In fairness, they probably went with Primal since they didn't know a proper one would show up later.)
Hey, good observation! The bigger Decepticon symbols in the gestalt mode's chest should indicate that Hun-Grrr's beast mode's front legs should have some new tooling and probably be way less stumpier than POTP Abominus'... Hopefully, Selects Abominus rectifies that issue Rippersnapper had.
How long did it take for GS Volcanicus to go from tease to full reveal? A week or two at most, right?
Teaser was on the 1st of September, and the full reveal the 6th if I recall correctly. So about a week. We could see a reveal as soon as this weekend possibly.
Beast Wars in Kingdom may have partly come about because of that vote, so if he hadn't won then the "proper" Primal may not have shown up later
Both Volcanicus and Abominus are already next level redundant.
Raiden, Landcross, Dinoking, Monstructor, RoadCaesar... still waiting
TT..you wanna do straight repaints? ok --Battle Gaia and Guard City. Now get to work please.
Two pack Battle Gaia and Guard City... wouldn't be a bad idea really, and they can give them proper weapons over the Voyagers odd long gun
Patience, it's slowly becoming a reality those other combiner retools..
Hurray another CW Combiner!
I could do with a Battle Gaia and Guard City as long as they're not released at the same time. Maybe make them a bit cheaper than Volcanicus since they wouldn't come with Grim's energo-cleavers. They'd be my Defensor and Bruticus stand ins for the time being.
Two pack is interesting, but cost may be a prohibitive factor. You'd be asking fans to budget $400 all at once for two repaints.
They'd also likely want to split the two apart to extend the life of the Selects brand.
Plus from a storytelling standpoint, it'd make more sense for one to come and have the other arrive as a counter. Similar to Volcanicus/Abominus.
If they did these, I could see both having exclusive hands/feet and a weapon for the combiner.
That actually makes sense too.
I'd like this too. Having three of the four G2 Scramble City sets is annoying and unsatisfying. But I'm not getting my hopes up, as Takara doesn't seem to do a lot of G2 stuff (though there are some exceptions).
