I'm so glad they adopted the extending waist mod.
Maybe I will pick this up if it comes state side.
It looks way more 'toon accurate when compared to my 1983 Takara Soundwave. Of course for a mold from 1974, what could we expect?

Not gonna lie unicron looks nice in black and the bruticus figures look nice in these colors but combined mode is so shitty it dosnt matter how nice the individual bots look. I have lost all faith in hasbro and takara with all the repaints and small hallow figures they have been releasing.

I agree with up here on the small and hollow part.

I think the combaticons look great, maybe a bit to vibrant.
I'm glad I have the SDCC set.

I wish Brawl was a bit bigger. Hopefully third party companies will make a voyager sized Onslaught to make Bruticus more beefy.

Said enough of the things already mentioned, but that Dark Unicron must be like his return (in either the cartoon or toy continuity) and it looks rather beautiful. And who needs Amazon when TakaraTomy gives us the G2 Bruticus? Get some horrible rap ready, Seibertron! ;)

Why wouldn't Activision do this for their commercial???

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

And, uh oh, Nemesis wearing the Nightmare Gaia Armor (not official name, just my own term) can't be good. ;)

Damn, really wish I had that Blast Off and Vortex. I can work with the American versions of Swindle, Brawl, and Onslaught, since they somewhat have their game-accurate colors.

Yeah no, I do too

Any one else have the feeling Takara and BBTS/Amazon G2 Bruticus are going to be the same, just repackaged. (maybe)

Story behind Nightmare Unicron and his combination with Nemesis:
The premise for the character was that instead of a physical avatar like Gaia Unicron, Nightmare Unicron would be an intangible avatar created by the slumbering Unicron (his "nightmare") that would attempt to possess the Nemesis Prime body.

I wonder... is Hydra a fan of Rockman X6 / Mega Man X6 by any chance? :-?
