Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Terrorcon Cutthroat Action FigureA clever co-tool of Swoop [FOTD #1,855], Terrorcon Cutthroat is an update to the classic Terrorcon! We had a couple in Prime's Beast Hunters segment, but this one is bigger and makes a more satisfying combiner toy. It's also worth noting that Abominus is the last combiner team of this line, and the last complete team for the known future. There are no known Seacons, so this is it! Get excited!

While the sculpt is good, it's the deco that got me excited. (The actual assembly could've been improved a bit with more metal rivets.) The paint job replicates the G1 stickers fairly nicely, down to the rubsign. It doesn't actually change color, but the Decepticon shield is dark enough that it only "reveals" itself in a pretty bright room. The head adds a silver face to the red eyes of old, which gives it more detail than the original animation model. Hasbro continued to experiment by giving him some green cuffs around his wrists, making this a slightly better-than-the-original update. Having said that, I'd be happy if they dropped some paint to improve the stability of the beast head.

The 5 1/2-inch robot is pretty sharp, with 14 really good points of articulation so you can have him aim and shoot. The leg kibble is a great update of the original, and I love the jointed wings. The face is an improvement over the original, but purists may be pt off by the alterations. But they don't write this review, so screw them - I like it.

The blaster is very similar to the original, and it can be held in his fists or mounted under the bird mode's head. It gets the job done.

Transformation is the same as Swoop - legs fold in, arms tuck to the sides, wings move a bit, and a monster head covers the robot head. You can do this pretty easily.

The alt mode is a nice winged beast with plastic wings that seem like HDPE. I might be wrong. The legs move nicely, the arm mounts on the back, there are places to mount the blaster plus it has a few joints on the head - be wary of these. It's very easy to pop the head off, the jaw out, or the crest off. The head may just pop off at the neck, too.

As limb modes go, it's fine. If you liked Swoop, it's a lot like that - it works with the leg as a stump. The arm has a good range of motion. You'll enjoy building an Abominus with it, plus or minus the fact that the hands aren't going to match the feet. It's stable and has a nice stumpy tail, plus pretty generously articulated wings. Just be careful about the jaw and crest - mine was assembled wrong and they popped out on my floor. Yours may fly under a chair or a couch. This is where we wish Hasbro sprang for metal rivets instead of just plastic tabs that can easily pop out.

I like it, but it has some problems - deco improves, but stability dropped a point. The individual toy is fun and does a good job updating the original toy, plus or minus the parts popping out. Be careful with it, clean it up, and it's a fine combiner part. --Adam Pawlus
