I'm not impressed with Bruticus myself. I think he looks really wonky. I do like the individual bots enough to pick them up though. I just don't know that the SDCC colors are worth the hassle or the scalper prices trying to get them. I don't really care for the G2 colors myself, so I guess I'm going for the regular retail versions.

You mean with customer-applied awful-looking stickers and mold-changes that ruin the appearance of the figure. Yeah, can't wait.

I remember when Hasbro-Hate used to be a logical conclusion, now it is just pathetic.

I was never really drawn to the Comic-Con variants, they seemed a little drab for me. Don't get me wrong, I would have picked them up in a hot second. But honestly, I love the nostalgic feel the G2 variant has. It is just so deliciously over the top.

I remember when you were able to go to a TRU or walmart or target and figured were stocked on the shelves and it wasn't really that hard to find a whole wave. I never had to turn to eBay or any other online retailer to get a figure. I think after the over stock of dotm figures that warm the pegs for so long they don't wanna ship in high volume or something just a thought lol

Saw the comic con version in person at Botcon. Even with darker colors, they still looked a little "plastic-ish" or in other words cheap. They need that metallic finish that Takara has been applying to most of their United line deluxes. And vortex needs to be grey with dark blue limbs and details. Screw the stupid video game.

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.
