Why is FOC Swindle so darn big?

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Quite possibly the best photo I've seen of Bruticus combined, maybe it's this paint scheme. Maybe I'll pick up the retail release after all.

Edit: well it's a good picture even if I can't quote it. :roll:


Hmph. I'm being forced to pick up the retail release. Budget.

If budget's a consideration, are you also considering the G2 release? It's actually cheaper than the retail release. (Unless you're not in the US)


And go for an even uglier colors? I'm fine with the retail release. I actually like that better than the G2.

Fair enough; go for the retail colors.

Remember the original source of the G2 image? It was from a Chinese hasbro product catalog of sorts... I'm sure they will be released here too. :lol: Also, collector shops are taking orders on the "Amazon" G2 bruticus for around $88 USD, which in still cheaper than the $116 I would spent if I were to buy the regular ones off retail. :lol:

I'm waiting for Takara's take on this... Please be game accurate colours. :PRAY:

BTW, thanks for that pic, I was nearly there with that mis-transform of Blast-off. You've made mine look better now ;)

Did you just rotate the thighs? Interesting, but I think it makes him look even more lanky and awkward.
