No, no and no again.
I like the colors but the combination form is just retarded. Not to mention that ongslaught is the worst of the individual molds.

I thought I could kitbast it into something decent but at last is to much work and money, so I skipped this set.

Yes !!! Bring in this and Omega supreme so I can ship my pile of loot already !!!

P.S. Takara: Do a repaint of Vortex in his proper G1 colors and somebody punch that Activision guy in the face. :HEADHURTS:

Did anyone notice in the instructions for Vortex that a few of the pictures had his face replaced by a face that looked a lot like Whirl's... were they thinking of doing a Wrecker's version of Bruticus down the line at some point?

Yep! This has been known for some time now, actually. Wave 4 of Generations (Fall of Cybertron) will be Wrecker retool/repaints of the Combaticons, who will combine to form...Ruination! Votex will become Whirl, as you guessed. Swindle will be Roadbuster, Onslaught will be Impactor, Blast Off will be Topspin, and Brawl will be Twintwist.

4 decos and neither a G1-colored Vortex nor a non-green Brawl between them...

All-Brawl-limbs looks surprisingly awesome.

You know, the whole thing looks a lot better if you mistransform Blastoff so that the linkage is centered in his torso (his head peeks up a bit, but it's worth it), and put Onslaught, Blastoff, and Vortex's guns on Bruticus's back. Swindle & Brawls' guns make a fine rifle by themselves.

Wait, does the Takara Onslaught have a Matte paint instead of Metallic? That would look really good with the rest of the SDCC components...

I'm digging the molds (Blast Off's giganto-arm doesn't faze me anymore, since I found a way to extend Vortex a little bit more to be on par) and the colors, but since I already have the retail versions, there is no need to get this. Now if they do a Generation 1 deco... I'm automatically sold.

Mental note... Buy a Vortex to repaint in actual G1 colors, since Hasbro and Takara have struck out FIVE times in a row. (counting the upcoming Whirl version.)

That said, the rest of the gang look pretty good. Onslaught with the green details looks nice, and the glow effects on the wheels looks best on this set over all the USA versions.

My instruction sheet didn't have Vortex pictured with Whirl's head.

Yes.

And yeah, seriously. Who makes the decisions in the chain of command to color the majority of the characters like OATMEAL. Stick with the G1 colors. Grahhhhh. Agreed on the punch-in-tha-face.

I gave this figure 2 tries already (G2 and Hasbro versions) and I sure as hell am not going to think 3 times will be the charm. :MAXIMAL:

Give or take, all of them are a G1 deco except for Vortex. Ive been calling for a grey and blue Vortex for awhile, but these damn video game fanatics seem to like him colored like vomit mixed with period blood. :BANG_HEAD:

Oh, but then he wouldnt be video game accurate !!! :HEADHURTS:

Screw the game. judging from the G1 based colors of the rest of the team, I honestly think Activision coloring team was delivered the wrong artwork. Energon Stormcloud maybe ?

The regular retail figures use the Energon colors for the most part. :)

Now FoC Vortex... I think we can blame his colors on one of two culprits:

Universe 2003 Ro-Tor

or:

Universe 2008/RotF Swindle

NICE JOB! Yeah, wow. That one version up top looks like the Bertie Botts "vomit" color jelly bean. WUGH. Dreadful.

Let's face it, this is probably the best team of official Combaticons we're going to get for quite some time. With that in mind I'm very tempted by these.

I know there'd be no option for a solid Bruticus, but I'd really like to see Swindle, Brawl, Blast Off and Vortex next to Henkei ultra class Onslaught. =P~

Onslaught and Brawl are definite improvements over both the Hasbro releases. Vortex and Blast Off look less bland, but in Blast Off's case the extra color makes him look gaudy. Swindle I actually like less when he's less brown and more gold, but that's probably because I really liked his levels in the game and have stubbornly decided to stick with the Hasbro release.
