Ugh! Correct colors Bruticus should not be a convention excvlusive.

Fanbase: "Please make Bruticus the right colors."
Hasbro: "Sure thing! And even better, it's going to be exclusive to SDCC!"
Fanbase: "F*** You!"

I can easily skip CJ.

Bruticus... are these the *actual* final colors? Because honestly, it's still not that good. The entire Blast Off arm is mostly yellow/gold INCLUDING the hand. And Onslaught is green/brown. It may be more game accurate, but its not G1 accurate. I may end up getting the crappy G2 colored one anyway... Swindle and Brawl look so much better here though.

Did anyone notice that Bruticus is incorrectly combined probably to match the pic of it on the inside of the box flap, which is basically Bruticus' mirror image, to distract from the error?

Not sure, but this print flub might make this limited edition set even more valuable.

I like the SDCC colors for onslaught, brawl and swindle, but I prefer vortex and blastoff in their standard colors. Onslaught looks really nice actually.

No way I can afford both. I'll probably be able to get 2 of the standard releases for 1 of the SDCC set. Standard it is it seems.

This Bruticus looks way better than the retail version. That's kind of sad. I guess this is one way to make a SDCC exclusive that people would buy. But then again, they said that if Bruticus does well at retail they'll consider more combiners, but if people want the good version, they probably won't get the retail version. So... I don't really get it. I really see no reason why there are two different coloured Bruticus, especially when one doesn't make any sense.

xD No love for us cheapskates? I like this thing, but I have no real interest in paying the crazy markup I know will be on it. I'll probably pick up the retail release if they do a box set, but meh. I'm tempered on the whole FOC Bruticus deal, now I'm excited for Voyager Soundwave!

Bruticus' arms are still off, to me, but hey, the colours on the others are real nice. Shame I doubt I'll be able to get it.

Hmm... SDCC Exclusive are seriously overpriced. Hmm... maybe not. Soundwave was shelf warming my TRUs for $60US and Blaster was $80 US. IF this thing does not go above the $80US pricepoint, I'll get it.

I wonder if United Bruticus would have a better and shinier paint job...

Wait, so this Bruticus is confirmed to be SDCC exclusive?

Erm... that "crappy G2 colored one is teal, just like the G1 version. G2 Onslaught is yellow...

Is it merely because the other one simply has a brighter shade regardless of color?

Honestly, I kinda prefer the retail one, the colored detailing is more pleasing to the eye than the slate grey the correctly colored one is, IMO. The only limb I have a real problem with in retail version is Brawl... I wish it were a color that isn't on the torso, like the other three. Blast Off is at least notably darker than Onslaught, red and yellow aren't even on Onslaught, but Brawl's green looks identical to Onslaught's =_=; That said, assuming they can Scramble, I may very well swap Vortex and Swindle. I feel like it'd look better given the color scheme.

Oh they probably can scramble. There are extra hands molded onto Brawl and Swindle. Unless those hands aren't used for that.

Meanwhile, I'll be one of those who will try getting both versions of FoC Bruticus so I'll have more display options.

Between those, other retail purchases, and the TFCC exclusives, my wallet will hate me.

Yeah, I guess that's what I meant... it's practically neon. But I do think the blue Onslaught is pretty good.

Am I seeing things or do Bruticus's proportions not look so out-of-whack now? Could be the camera angle. I know the left arm looks weird at least.

SDCC is in July. The following Monday after the convention, they'll be available on HTS.

G1 Soundwave was reissued twice: in 2006 as part of Classics, TRU exclusive, and again as a SDCC exclusive in 2009. Here's the Classics one:

The Color differences are so significant.

(Figure)-------(Retail)---(SDCC)
Onslaught---Blue-------Grey
Brawl----------Lime------Forest Green
Swindle------Yellow----Gold(ish)
Vortex--------Red--------Bronze
Blast-Off----Purple-----Copper


...So for CLOSEST video game accuracy, you need:

Standard Retail:
Onslaught and Swindle

SDCC:
Blast-Off, Vortex, and Brawl

Oi Vey!

Yeah, I'm aware of that. I owned the one you pictured. 2 years later the SDCC one comes along with the G1 chest and 2 extra cassets for $15 more. :HEADHURTS:

So Hasbro hasn't released the price of the Bruticus set? And no boxed figure on display? Hows a guy supposed to plan ahead?
I'm going to the convention and if Bruticus is in my price range I will buy him, but I don't know if I'll be able to carry him around if his box is huge like ROTF Devastator, or if I'd even be able to get it home on the plane.

I got Prime last year and he was no problem to get home, but I dunno about Bruticus. I have no interest in CJ, even if he is a zombie transformer.

And lets hope they don't sell out in like 5 minutes like Starscream did last year...

I have a feeling Cliff will hang around, like Optimus, but I question what will become of the others.

the crotch guard piece looks like it has been unpegged and is sorta hanging forward off its hinge.

I'm more interested in the MP-10 displayed with FOC Bruticus. Does this mean the Hasbro release of MP-10 is SDCC exclusive?

Edit: Never mind, answered my own question saw that it's going to be exclusive to TRU...

No, they're just displaying the various exclusives together in the same case. MP-10 is going to be a TRU exclusive.

Edit: Which you figured out yourself. ;)
