    Monstructor should be remolded from the Terrorcons. And as they would no longer be Pretenders, their team name would be Monstercons.

    Scowl, Slog and Icepick would be remolded from Blot
    Wildfly would be repainted from Cutthroat with the unused Wildfly head
    Bristleback and Birdbrain would be remolded from Sinnertwin

    Since the original Monstructor was made up of six components, there has to be some changes. Bristleback and Birdbrain would now form the feet to Monstructor, making the smallest G1 combiner the third largest of the modern combiners after Predaking and Devastator. And the torso would be Hydrax, a straight repaint of Hun-Grrr, based on the unreleased Prime Bot Shots Hydrax who would have shared a mold with Prime Hun-Grrr. 6BA3A0A2-2FCC-40C1-8E37-E9D4BF43FBE4.jpeg

    Or instead of Hydrax, the torso would be Bristleback repainted from Turtler, representing his Pretender shell.

    Took a bad pic of the combined gun mode from Generations 2020.

    Wait, Monstructor was IN the fiction?

    Joke notwithstanding, I'm unaware of anything pre-IDW.

    EDIT (now that the TFWiki was brought in): So, really, there's NOT much pre-IDW, and those appearances that exist don't seem to give much context for how Monstructor compares to other combiners. We can just tell it's larger than most non-combiners....

    Considering it never existed before this...I'm fine with it. Piranacon is going to be busy holding the Targetmaster weapon anyway, but it's nice to have a backup weapon if I want.

    Plus his sword works the same way as Victorion's and looks much better combined than his guns. And that's what's important.

    Better than how TFC's turned out, since it's very clear there's an "abandoned mid-way-through" combined gun gimmick for TFC's Poseidon set. You can combine some of the guns, and there's lots of extra ports/tabs (and even moving parts) on the leader's gun, but "nothing quite works".

    Not really all different than what was done with the Technobots.

    Though the Seacons are adhering a little more to the original designs than the Technobots were, so there are probably some concessions in doing so.

    Project Poseidon almost certainly stole design cues from TFC Poseidon and honsetly I'm okay with that.

    First MP-45 and now this? How is that the best they could come up with? It doesn't even use all the guns!

    No time limit on this one. Fingers crossed that Pulse can spread the love too for those that didn't find out about them until too late.

    From TT Mall thanks to Google Translate:
    Orders can be placed between the 26th December 2019 (Thu) from 12:00 until it runs out.

    I'm guessing there is a very small amount since there is no time limit.

    The email I got also mentions there isn't a special package for this release. It's just the same as the figures packed individually or in waves.

    I'm actually pretty excited about it. Like yourself Im ready for the hiolidays to be done, but once I start to recover I'll be pretty happy to get these as they are released.
