Last week we reported on the upcoming Fall of Cybertron G2 Bruticus that Hasbro had on display at SDCC 2012, which comes complete with replica G2 packaging, which Hasbro painstakingly recreated. We finally had a chance to update the existing gallery with detailed pictures of the back and sides of the packaging which includes the bio card and other aspects which complete the replica G2 feel of this unique packaging. Check out the pictures below ...

Great pics! I'm so glad that I got this coming in November. The colors just work with the molds. Plus the box is awesome. The box and all five of them will be on my shelf.

I think I'll be keeping this box.

I hope we see some other FoC figures done in the G2 style. I'd love a blue Grimlock (he was the first TF toy I had, along with green Slag and red Snarl).

This deco is the G1 Bruticus character, while the SDCC and retail decos are the Fall of Cybertron Bruticus character.

I can't believe so many people think bruticus is a nice looking combiner. Wait till you have him in hand to see what a disappointment he really is

Opinions, man. We're not gonna "find out" that we share your opinion. If we still like him, we still like him. If we don't, we don't. >:oP

Aside from any unpredictable QC issues, I'm fairly certain that not only will he be my collection's centerpiece, but he'll also be my favorite of all. Well, the G2 version at least.

If you don't want yours, I'll be happy to buy it off ya...

The people who are getting G2 Bruticus have several months to put their expectations at a realistic level. Plus, they're spending a LOT less money and going through a LOT less hassle, so there's much less of that "this had better be worth it" feeling.

We're also paying a good bit less than retail, too. :) So, not only do we get FoC Bruticus, we get a massive nostalgiagasm and a great deal. And I'll say the same thing I've said all along, the more I see, the more I want it to be here, lol.

Okay, I admit. I just pre-ordered. $60 for a G2 decoed Bruticus is pretty sweet. Especially since buying the individual figures in retail will be more expensive and more of a hassle. I still HAVE my G2 Bruticus. Guess I'll be displaying them together.

I guess if you don't own any 3rd party combiners or the rotf bruticus with FP kits or with out. He looks like a great combiner compaired to a g1 combiner unless you have 3rd party kits on your g1 combiner. The individual robots are nice but they are still very light feeling like the FOC prime,jazz and shockwave. But besides that they look nice but in combined mode not so much his arms are to long his hands look bad and the connection points show to much. Why is one point purple and the other black. Also the idea of being able to swap limbs anywhere is cool but not when you lose articulation. And then hasbro puts a different head on him moves the arms around and calls it a totally different combiner and people are happy. And this version of brut is nowhere near being centerpiece material unless you have no other combiners or MP figures. And I am actually thinking about selling him but if I do I want exactly what I paid for him because he's MISB I played with my friends before I opened mine

First of all, it's irrelavent whether I own them or not. I'm still capable of deciding whether or not I want a figure without actually owning it. Secondly, I own all Energon-style 5-bot combiners without 3rd-party add-ons. Yes, they're great, and no, I wouldn't want to shell out tons of money on the 3rd-party upgrades on them, nor do I think they're in any way better than FoC Bruticus with or without upgrades.

Well those are your opinions. Opinions which I disagree with for the most part.

Ruination IS a totally different combiner. Maybe not in the sense that it uses 95% of the same molding as FoC Bruticus, but they're different characters and IMO, have a sufficient amount of molding/color to call them different.

Hotrodimust wrote:And this version of brut is nowhere near being centerpiece material unless you have no other combiners or MP figures.
That's your opinion. But for my collection, FoC G2 Bruticus will be a centerpiece.

lol, no thanks then. >:oP

I realize you dislike FoC Bruticus, but it's a fact that people have different opinions than you do. People aren't gonna change their opinions because you insist that their opinions are wrong.

Lol ok and I'm not trying to change your opinion about this waste of plastic. I just like a higher quality figure I guess some people are happy with what ever they get. And as far as deciding of its a bad figure b4 buying it I don't do that anymore because I've liked figure more once in hand and that's why I bought him just in case but he is what he looks like an over size pcc. The actual box is better than the figure IMO

Please drop it. I'm tired of the 3rd party guys raining on the parade of people who like the official Transformers toys. This is enough of the 3rd party fans trolling topics about the official Transformers toys.

I have Tripredacus, the second Predacon Combiner. He's not all that great but he's still very much the highlight of my Beast Wars figures. I expect Bruticus to be the same for my FoCs.

lets see on the one hand you have a $600 dollar 3rd party, and on the other a $60 dollar hasbro/takara......which one again is a waste of plastic?

Well if someone, say, don't care how much articulation something has, that the action features and/or aesthetics are more important for the figure to them, then it'll be easy to judge a toy before they have it in-hand. Plus, a lot of us aren't the 'buy-then-decikde-to-resell-or-not' type.

Besides, some of us take in enough information before they decide to buy it without touching the figure first. Examining each and every picture that comes out of it, taking notes on reviews, etc. For instance, I personally studied FoC Bruticus so much, I was able to predict that it's Blast-Off arm could collapse to look more normalish, plus I guessed the ability for Bruticus to attach Onslaught's weapon to his back to simulate his trademark back guns.

And IJS, I think Hercules and other 3rd-party combiners are wastes of plastic, but I rarely tell that to people because it's just my opinion. =)

I own hundreds of official figures but I'm not gonna accept anything hasbro throws at me and call it a good figure when it's not. And I can't help it that I have to buy over priced 3rd party figures just to have a quality figure. I wish hasbro would step their game up I would love to give my money to the official company. And be able to find their products in stores and not have to pre order them on line or get robbed on eBay. And all I really said at first is once people have the figure in hand they will see its not as they thought it was gonna be. Also I have not watched or read on good review on him. And what's the difference of me saying I don't like it and someone saying its amazing. I'm just saying what I think off it because I have it in hand and not looking at a picture that's all

I for one only purchase licensed TF's. I do not purchase 3rd party anything. It is not because I do not think that some of the 3rd party figures are sweet, I do, but it is because I like keeping my collection 3rd party free.

Now as far as G2 Bruticus goes, and SDCC Bruticus, and the retail version, IMO, no this is not a perfect toy, and maybe isn't going to meet all of my expectations, but it's a fricken toy, and I like it and I want it, and I will have it. :grin:

Still waiting for my SDCC2012 Bruticus to ship from HTS.com. Once I have him in hand I will decide if he is enough for my FOC set, or if I will cancel my pre-order for G2 version.

I look forward to your opinion once you receive the SDCC version of Bruty. I really wanted to get that version of him and hovered HTS to no avail. I was initially very disappointed, but I'm really starting to like the G2 version.

I agree that it'll be nice to not have to hunt them down individually and to have a nice complete G2 package as well. I really like that he's $40 less too.

Anyway, be sure and post your opinion about the SDCC version once you've got him in hand. I may have to hunt him down eventually if everyone seems to agree that he's worth it. For now I am more than happy with the G2 version, but I can re-evaluate the SDCC colors later after the hype and my initial heartbreak dies down!

Have you ever considered how thoroughly condescending and annoying you sound? It's quite ironic, you warble on about opinions, yet there's no shortage forthcoming from your fingertips. Please be quiet. It's perfectly acceptable for others to have a say in a matter and not be subject to your verbal barrage, that you so thoroughly enjoy sharing with us.
