So that nice gunmetal grey/black IS the correct color? PHEW!

I just found him at Walmart tonight. I forgot it was out around now. It was a nice surprise. Arm articulation seems more limited than PRID Megatron though. Other than that, he's really cool.

Actually it's kinda brownish.

I picked this up a couple days ago but was too lazy to post a pic.

Update: Sorry, forgot to mention where. Found it at Wal-mart in Maryland. No sign of any at Target around here yet, though I found Grimwing and the newer version of Ultra Magnus there a few days earlier.

I can't wait to pick this guy up.

I realize some people think it's an ugly color scheme but I think it's legit. :CON:

I just wanna know the series of life choices Megatron made that led to him choosing a fish aeroplane as an alt mode.
I think it's a cry for help.
Poor guy.

They've got the Wreckers in my local New Hampshire Walmart on route 11 from Rochester. i already got the set from bbts...

And honestly, these are not that awesome. Their vehicle modes are nice, and their robot modes aren't too shabby, barring Impactor's stick arms. But the combined mode is a piece of JUNK! :BANG_HEAD: :evil:

Like I said, the Bruticus combination is much better than Ruination's

What specifically are your issues with the combined mode? There's a good bit of fiddling you can do to make it considerably better. Just mess around with it, is my opinion, and you'll find some ways to make things do what you want. :)

It feels floppy, cheaply-made, I have a bad time with him standing up and the weapon makes him off-balance. I wasn't even planning on keeping him in combined mode. All five of these guys are standing on my neo-G1 shelf and that's how they'll stay.

I'll give you the cheaply made part, they definitely skimped on quality for the entire FoC deluxe line, but floppy and having balance issues? Who are you using for the legs? I've never had issues with the G2 version, it's very stable and posable. I guess it doesn't matter if you're leaving them uncombined, I'm just wondering what you're doing that it's not solid. :P

Well, I wouldn't say the entire line. Just the Combaticons (and the Wreckers, from what I've heard) and Jazz. My Ultra Magnus, Starscream, and Shockwave are all fine, quality-wise.

But, at least in the cases of the Optimus and Shockwave molds, they're still EXTREMELY tiny and thin. I love that Shockwave mold to death, but there's no defending how ridiculously small and thin he is.

Oh yes, no argument there. Ultra Magnus, despite being awesome, looks sadly pathetic on my Classics shelf.

I had it in the configuration in the instructions. Roadbuster as the left arm, Twin Twist as the right arm, Whirl as the right leg and Topspin as the left. Admittedly it was more to see how it looks. ;) I don't own the Combaticon set of this.

And do NOT get me started on the cheapness of the FOC toys. Jazz in particular will send me into RAEG! :BANG_HEAD: :BOOM: :BOOM: :evil: ;)

Well there's your problem. ;P Vortex/Whirl doesn't do a whole lot of good as a leg, I'd suggest always using Swindle/Roadbuster as a leg. I'd imagine Brawl/Twin Twist as an arm also makes him balance a little strangely due to 60% of him sticking off the side of the shoulder.

Well, if I ever combine them again I'll keep that in mind. ;)
