    That's a bit of a shame, in my opinion, since my thoughts are that the limb Terrorcons are excellent Deluxe figures overall, have very involved transformations, and are a joy to pose. If you can look past Hun-Gurrr having to use the combiner feet as "weapons", he's also a great figure to transform as well. Personally, I think that all of the Terrorcons are great as standalone figures as well. In fact, to an extent, I think it's a darn shame that the Terrocons are a combiner team, because many people are just going to combine them into Abominus and leave them that way for the most part, and I feel that doing so deprives them of the personality that each individual member is just oozing with.

    Not to mention that shrimp stink to high heaven when they rot and putrefy.

    The image seems to be more of a fantastical depiction of Abominus rather than something actually accurate to the PotP gestalt. Case in point, in the image, Abominus has the dragon head knees he did in G1, but his PotP figure doesn't have those. I don't personally think that the picture is intended to actually be any sort of guidance on how or where to position the two spare combiner hands, to be honest.

    Totally. Should be a triple changer with an alt mode as a jet ski in there somewhere.

    I literally cannot go a day without changing him from combine mode, to taking him apart. I just love this team so damn much. From the Alt modes to Robot to combined mode, this set is definitely one of the three main highlights of PotP. I’m definitely going to get the PE upgrades for him so Abonimus can have a decent weapon. And matching hands.

    So what are the good power primes figures and/or Generations figures you guys think are the ones worth getting? Punch, Counter-punch, Wreck-Gar, Predaking, Elita-1, maybe full Abominus set... Any others you guys think are good? Repugnus? Grotusque? TR Arcee?

    Definitely get Abominus. Wreck-Gar comes from a good mold and if you don't have a Wreck-Gar that you're happy with I'd say pick him up. For me Prediking is and easy pass, he's too big to take on any Autobot combiners and the leg bots have to tote the combiner thighs everywhere they go. Elita-1 is not bad and has some improvements over Starscream. She goes nicely with CW Optimus Prime, but I'd say if you don't have a real love for female robot she's passible. I can't really say anything about Punch/Counterpunch All we know is he'll have one car mode two bots modes and he'll come with Prima. If I were a rich man I would het Punch/Counterpunch and Prediking just for the Prime Masters that they come with.

    Been happy with how Predaking looks. What about Arcee, Repugnus and Grotusque?

    I have all the Dinobots. Starscream looks terrible to me. Inferno has me paused because he's too much like the Defensor and Victorion setups. Unicronus has a cool color.

    Repugnus.
    Got the other two so no brainer when he goes live.
    Grotusque.

    Arcee is good for a retool of Blurr. As for Repugneus and Grotusque all I can say is I has Doublecross and did not care for him, so Grotusque was a pass and Repugnus completes a set I don't have so, meh.

    Not sure why you're asking about Repugnus when we haven't even seen what it looks like yet.

    I don't have Grotusque, but TR Arcee is pretty cool. My only issue with the figure is that mine was pretty loose (maybe because it's the fourth use of the TR Blurr mold?). After some floor polish to tighten up the joints, though, she's great.
