Asian Excluisive Combaticons -- Yotsuya's Reviews

Postby Yotsuyasan » Tue May 21, 2013 11:55 pm

Motto: "No matter where you go, there you are."
A text & photo review of the Asian Exclusive Combaticons, very G1-ish repaints of Energon Bruticus Maximus.

(This review will, in the near future, have a few follow-up reviews... But you might have to look in the Third Party forums for notice on those!)

Enjoy!

I've just posted a follow-up to this review on my website, where I take a new look at these toys (well, three out of five of them, now joined by two third-party interlopers :lol: ) now that they've had Reprolabels applied.

Anyone interested in this follow-up can find it by clicking here.

Motto: "Life is far too important to be taken seriously."
Weapon: Energon Cutlass
You might need to do some digging to find it, but there is an alternate way to transform the limbs to give E. Bruticus elbow articulation. Its been forever and a day since I handled the set, so my memory on the subject is fairly hazy.

Nice review!

I'd probably be quite interested in that, if I didn't have elbows on him thanks to third party augmentation. But as a curiosity, if you ever find that info, do post again!
