I mean red red.

Please tell me I'm not going crazy. :sad:

Maybe he's an anomalous trichromate like me. I see it as orange too. Then again I see Alternators Swerve and Optimus as the same color.

I don't think it's your eyes. I think it's the picture(s). However, I used to own G2 Bruticus and I have to agree that Swindle was more of an orangish red. I mean, he's red, no doubt about it, but there is a slight orange tinge to it. I remember that well.

Scrambling is good. Honestly, now that we know which version is which, the idea of the regular retail release is growing on me. Especially because SDCC Onslaught is not G1 accurate. I just hope the colors turn out less neon than they look in these pics.

Using the dropper in a paint program on the red areas of that image, it's something like ~200R ~50G ~50B, so regardless of the actual figure (something I've never witnessed in person), that image is empirically red red, not orange, not orange red. To be orange, the G value would need to be significantly higher than the B value while still being lower than the R value.

edit:


Oh yeah, it's definitely the image that's off, this one looks much more orange

Wait. Hold the Phone. Bruticus can scramble!? He's not just a glorious PCC!?

Now I want him more.

And I'm still convinced that a good portion of that combined super-weapon can be attached to his back, so he retains his twin back cannons, and so Onslaught's head isn't staring out of his back. There's a bunch of 5mm pegs on the bottom of Onslaught's weapon; it must clip on somewhere! It might also clip into Onslaught's vehicle mode roof, so he doesn't have that huge hold AND so he looks more like his in-game model.

Maybe Blast-Off's blasters can combine with the tips of the Onslaught weapon, to increase the length, and make them a better size match for Bruticus. Heck, the gun formed from combining Swindle's and Brawl's weapons make a rifle that's plenty big enough for Bruticus, and less silly looking then the super-weapon. And Vortex's over-sized swords would make good knifes or machetes for the big Brute.

For all we know, the "super-weapon" was created by the photographer, who was probably given no instructions, and just put the weapons together in a way that they all attached. From there on, it just stuck.

Edit:

Look RIGHT next to the tires on his shoulders, on the plastic bordering Onslaught's head. Those are 5mm ports. The weapon goes there to close the gap! :KREMZEEK:

Looks like it can tab on the back of the Bruticus crotch plate. If the plate can fold down enough, it'll look more natural.

Regardless of color scheme hasbro finally chooses...I'm still picking this guy up. For me its just the stock photos that are bad and turning me away from a FoC bruticus,But the more I see from Botcon and other "in-hand" images,The more I'm wanting.

Plus I too think the gun combines just to put on his back
I am not a GEEWUNNER...I just really like homeages
