Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Terrorcon Hun-Gurrr Action FigureWhile the name stays the same, the spelling of Hun-Gurrr changes every now and then. This is the spelling you usually see on toy packaging, and is therefore correct. The toy is very much inspired by 2014's Silverbolt [FOTD #1,210]. It doesn't seem to use many or any parts, but the transformation, articulation, and general buck seems to be from the same CAD starter file.

The robot, now a Voyager-class toy, looks a lot like the original G1 robot. The new one has no weapon (boo) but has an Enigma that hides in the combiner chest (and is pointless), but it carries the colors and details over nicely. He has dragon head feet, a fake rubsign, and the tail becomes the chest - complete with pink plates. The coloring is reasonably like the original with pretty fabulous robot proportions and rocker ankles! I love his silver shades, pink head, and dragony robot features.

As accessories go, I want something else. I love the pink feet for the combiner robot, but there won't be matching pink fists and I find that to be disappointing. Also, there's no combiner weapon, or a weapon for Hun-Gurrr. Given the price increase since Combiner Wars I don't like this, and the Enigma of Combination is sort of a worthless accessory. In combined mode it's hidden in the chest - so why have it at all? It serves no real play or story purpose, it's just an ornament that adds to the cost of the toy. I'd say "it's better than nothing" but I would have also accepted a price decrease.

The Hun-Gurrr dragon is a treat, but it's a little wonky - the necks look a little like legs. I love the panels that flip over to look like dragon fins, and the dragon legs look surprisingly decent. It's a boxy dragon made of robots with a fair amount of articulation, effectively doing what the 1988 original did with more joints. He's fun to pose, but he is what he is - the design makes for a good robot and a great torso, and a dragon that's good given the mandate of his design. He is not amazing - but he is good.

The big Abominus torso is a gem, and the reason you'll buy this toy. The body is a lot like Silverbolt's Superion mode, with bonus options for customizers. If you strip the paint from his head, you get purple plastic to match the cartoon look. If you leave it as is, it does a good job resembling the original toy team's torso. The greys on the hips and upper thighs are switched, but it's pretty close otherwise. The stickers are replicated with paint on the tabard, which pleases me a great deal. While there are stickers on this toy, there's also a wonderful quantity of paint.

The chest has a secret compartment to store the Enigma or a Prime Master, if you're so inclined. It can be opened or shut, and I would wager mot fans will leave it closed because that's how the original toy goes. (It may not close with a Prime Master. Enigma, it'll close.) It's a pretty obscure character as the TV show goes, so I'm glad they made a man made of monsters.

The very concept of combiner teams is a little silly, and one made out of monsters is probably about as sensible as a robot made of cars or planes or dinosaurs. The colors are nice, and it's a fun toy in all modes - but you will want to rely on your imagination and sense of fun to get the most out of this one. I would have loved to have had a gun for this toy but I assume this is something Hasbro knows and is why we have Prime Master weapons. Those looking for a transcendent toy experience will undoubtedly have reason to complain, but it's a pretty nice juiced-up version of a 1988 robot monster. As of my writing this I don't have his team, but I look forward to completing it.
