With the 3rd party Not-Blastoff and Not-Swindle figs sold out years ago, I ain't touching that with a ten-foot pole.

Well that's unexpected. Interesting to note that Onslaught, Swindle and Vortex have significantly different paint decos than the Target set.

Perfect opportunity for FansProject to make up a whole new batch of Not-Blast Offs and Not-Swindles and re-release them, capitalizing on this new Bruticus release.

Too bad this wasn't the original color scheme right?

Bizarre move when you consider they already have ANOTHER Bruticus hitting the shelves. Why put out a competing product that's several years out of date?

I buy everything Combaticons, and Im still gonna pass. Considerding I use the Fansproject, set, I dont see much change for my buck. Especially since my energon Onslaught with Reprolabels is virtually the same as the new one. Maybe if they had done the truck cab in blue, but not more damn grey...

I certainly hope they do. If I get word of a re-release, I'll be sure to get this Bruticus set. But until then... >:oP

Maybe they were trying to ride on the popularity of the FoC Bruticus fig?

Maybe it's from Bruticus overload, but I'm having trouble remembering the schemes of this guy in his past iterations. Someone needs to post some side-by-side comparisons of all the individual figures. Someone with lots of time. >:oP

Oh! I was just talking about the same mold originally from Energon. Debating buying the thing, but want to make sure it's different enough to talk myself into it. If no one post, I'm sure to dig after work to do the comparison. Heh.

- Energon Bruticus Maximus
- Universe 2008/RotF Bruticus Maximus

Looks like another redeco to me, albeit a slight one.

Swindle had a purple cockpit with a blue nose (instead of both being tan), and his $ signs seem to be missing. And his light tan stripes on each leg are now yellow.

Blast Off's forehead appear to be orange instead of maroon.

Onslaught has a completely new color scheme, with all of his light gray part now dark blue, his light brown-gray parts now dark gray, and, his torso now light gray, and his crotch now green. His truck cab is now also light gray.

Vortex's dark blue is now dark teal.

Brawl's two-tone dark and light greens are now one-tone dark green.

And, all Energon Weapons are now gray instead of red or orange.

Okay, seeing them together, this is sold. All the changes seem like they're better choices, and better nods to the G1 schemes. But the weapons being solid color, that cinches the deal. :-?

Thanks for the compare contrast, by the way!!!
