xD No love for us cheapskates? I like this thing, but I have no real interest in paying the crazy markup I know will be on it. I'll probably pick up the retail release if they do a box set, but meh. I'm tempered on the whole FOC Bruticus deal, now I'm excited for Voyager Soundwave!

Bruticus' arms are still off, to me, but hey, the colours on the others are real nice. Shame I doubt I'll be able to get it.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Legit collector, gonna buy the regular release, gonna smile.

I don't have the patience for that kinda crap. Go to store, buy, done.

Hmm... SDCC Exclusive are seriously overpriced. Hmm... maybe not. Soundwave was shelf warming my TRUs for $60US and Blaster was $80 US. IF this thing does not go above the $80US pricepoint, I'll get it.

I wonder if United Bruticus would have a better and shinier paint job...

Erm... that "crappy G2 colored one is teal, just like the G1 version. G2 Onslaught is yellow...

Is it merely because the other one simply has a brighter shade regardless of color?

Honestly, I kinda prefer the retail one, the colored detailing is more pleasing to the eye than the slate grey the correctly colored one is, IMO. The only limb I have a real problem with in retail version is Brawl... I wish it were a color that isn't on the torso, like the other three. Blast Off is at least notably darker than Onslaught, red and yellow aren't even on Onslaught, but Brawl's green looks identical to Onslaught's =_=; That said, assuming they can Scramble, I may very well swap Vortex and Swindle. I feel like it'd look better given the color scheme.

Oh they probably can scramble. There are extra hands molded onto Brawl and Swindle. Unless those hands aren't used for that.

Meanwhile, I'll be one of those who will try getting both versions of FoC Bruticus so I'll have more display options.

Between those, other retail purchases, and the TFCC exclusives, my wallet will hate me.

Yeah, I guess that's what I meant... it's practically neon. But I do think the blue Onslaught is pretty good.

Am I seeing things or do Bruticus's proportions not look so out-of-whack now? Could be the camera angle. I know the left arm looks weird at least.

G1 Soundwave was reissued twice: in 2006 as part of Classics, TRU exclusive, and again as a SDCC exclusive in 2009. Here's the Classics one:

The Color differences are so significant.

(Figure)-------(Retail)---(SDCC)
Onslaught---Blue-------Grey
Brawl----------Lime------Forest Green
Swindle------Yellow----Gold(ish)
Vortex--------Red--------Bronze
Blast-Off----Purple-----Copper


...So for CLOSEST video game accuracy, you need:

Standard Retail:
Onslaught and Swindle

SDCC:
Blast-Off, Vortex, and Brawl

Oi Vey!

Yeah, I'm aware of that. I owned the one you pictured. 2 years later the SDCC one comes along with the G1 chest and 2 extra cassets for $15 more. :HEADHURTS:

So Hasbro hasn't released the price of the Bruticus set? And no boxed figure on display? Hows a guy supposed to plan ahead?
I'm going to the convention and if Bruticus is in my price range I will buy him, but I don't know if I'll be able to carry him around if his box is huge like ROTF Devastator, or if I'd even be able to get it home on the plane.

I got Prime last year and he was no problem to get home, but I dunno about Bruticus. I have no interest in CJ, even if he is a zombie transformer.

And lets hope they don't sell out in like 5 minutes like Starscream did last year...

I have a feeling Cliff will hang around, like Optimus, but I question what will become of the others.
