Amazon.com pre-orders: G2 Bruticus & Movie Jet Wing Optimus Prime

Postby Dead Metal » Fri Jul 06, 2012 7:45 am

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Amazon.com has posted two new pre-order pages for two larger releases. One we had heard about, the other is a surprise.

First off is the G2 inspired repaint of Transformers Fall of Cybertron Bruticus for US $59.99, which you can view by clicking here. Based on the price and the description, this is for a full set of Combaticons.

Product Features and Details:
  • Five robots combine into the super warrior Bruticus!
  • Weapons combine to form sonic cannon!
  • When the five COMBATICONS combine into DECEPTICON BRUTICUS, they become the stuff of nightmares
  • Bruticus easily destroys his enemies with ultrasonic waves or a smack from his massive hands
  • Once Bruticus has begun on a path of destruction, no force in the known universe can stop him.
  • Product Dimensions: 4 x 12.5 x 12.5 inches
  • Shipping Weight: 2 pounds

The next one is pretty interesting, it's labelled as Transformers Optimus Prime Jetwing Movie Deco - Amazon Exclusive, a Hasbro release of TakaraTomy's DOTM Jetwing Optimus Prime.

Product Features and Details:
  • Jetwing Optimus Prime: Supreme Class
  • Jet Wing can be detached rapidly for diverse battle field situations!
  • The latest battle enhancement equipped by Transformers warriors is the incredibly powerful MECHTECH weapons system!
  • Weapons work with any MECHTECH Transformers Figure (each sold separately)
  • Create new weapons with MECHTECH combinations!
  • Product Dimensions: 5.8 x 17.5 x 12.5 inches
  • Shipping Weight: 5 pounds

I've been thinking about getting a Jetwing Prime, but didn't want to spend $200 on the thing, so this is great news.

As for Bruticlus, I might go with this one over the SDCC version. It's cheaper, and I love delightfully bad G2 color schemes.

Wow, I was NOT expecting G2 FOC Bruticus to be so cheap! I preordered that bad boy so fast! It's going to look kick ass on my Neo G2 shelf 8)

I also think it's cool we Americans will finally have a chance at Jetwing Prime. I'd buy it, but I already have the black version.

I just applied for an amazon gift card and they took 30 bucks off! I got this guy for around $30 hell yah. I wasn't going to pay a hundred for him since I have the fans project bruticus. I really hope the packaging is cool so I can just keep his sexy G2 ass in there.

Still no Jetwing love for the U.K. then....

Can anyone tell me any major differences between this Optimus and the Leader version, apart from the attachable wings and pea shooters?
He looks very similar.

I was on the fence about Bruticus but that price won me over. I don't even mind the G2 color scheme, especially since the normal release Bruticus looks just as gaudy.

We desperately need him here, will we get him? No, probably not. Thanks a lot Hasbro.

Compared to the ROTF leader prime: he has a new chest/abdomen sculpt and his arms have been remolded to accommodate his cannons and as a result he looses his retractable blades.

He has a retooled abdominal piece, wind shield pieces and has the blades eliminated. The result looks more accurate to the third movie, plus facilitates transformation.

Any time. As a little bonus, Leader Striker Optimus with the MechTech gear uses the same mold, with the gas tanks retooled. If you want just the Leader mold, it's either or, as the Jetpower's wings can't fit on Striker.

No problem. Also, his crotch has a slight retool, so he now has a small 'knob' sticking out (I kid you not).

Interesting. Considering Amazon Unicron was released in Canada at TRU, I wonder if something similar may happen with these. Jet Wing Prime is a little too expensive for my taste, but he sure does look cool. Bruticus would have to wait until I see pics of the final product.

Looks like either both sold out in a matter of 30 minutes, or they put these up in error, and we are all gonna get "sorry this item...blah blah blah"

I ordered Jet_prime, I have the Takara, but for 100$, I'll take another one.
I hope I can still pick up the Brute, for that price. That was a steal, Wish I would have paid more attention.

Wow, that sold out quick. It will likely be just like when Unicron went up. Amazon will bring it up for preorder once more when they verify more stock or whatever so I'm not too worried about it.
