Fingers crossed that Hasbro produced a TON of these sets for HasbroToyShop so they don't sell out within the first hour or so because I definitely want one and it seems plenty of other people do as well.

I wonder if Takara will use the FOC Combaticon toys for their United line? Would be awesome if they did. I'd actually wait for a Takara version if there's a possibility of it.

About Vortex's color; I agree. That pinkish...orangish...whatever, is fugly.

I'm sure they will. They did with all of the WFC toys so I can't see them skipping the FOC toys.

got mine about an hour ago and my first impression is kinda neutral. I like the individual bots a lot(their weapons are awesome). my one big nag is blast off as a arm, he just doesn't work well. I ended up switching brawl to an arm and blast off to being a leg. I may buy another swindle and brawl at retail and not use vortex and blast off at all. bruticus is light, but he is limber with what I thought was a surprising range of movement.

Perfect point and I'm not sure if it was mentioned at all but I'm wondering if Takara will be releasing another set in either G1 colors or current paint apps with metallic finish. :VEHI:

Not sure if I'm keeping my SDCC Bruticus set. There were things I actually really liked in person (I thought it looked better live than in pictures) but I question where it would ultimately might add it into my collection. My friend who braved the Hasbro line is almost certainly going to sell his.

I got my Brute and Cliff off eBay. Not so much because I don't think I would be able to get them off HTS, more because I just don't want to deal with HTS. Worth the extra cash in my book, plus I'll have them by the end of the week.

I'm considering the same thing. I've been watching HTS like a hawk with no sign of any of the exclusives. It's actually starting to drive me crazy and I haven't had to deal with the site traffic crashing yet! Has anyone heard when the SDCC exclusives should go up on HTS?

Not yet, I'm surprised they haven't went up already.
