FoC Bruticus

Postby MenaceRX » Wed Oct 17, 2012 7:58 pm

I picked this up in store since they shockingly had all 5 and only one of each. So i didnt pass on it since I have seen what they have been going for online. I have a question for any who own this group of figures. I noticed there is a pair of large hands hidden inside of Swindle's feet. What is this for, can I arrange them in a different fashion then the baseline instruction to create Bruticus differently or is there something I am missing?

Yep, all of the limbs can be either an arm or a leg, and they can be right or left arms or legs :).

They accomplish this through either having reversable thumbs (as in the case of Vortex) or having a thumb on each side (as with Swindle, Blastoff and Brawl).

Actually after just watching a video review with a different configuration I am thinking of picking up an additional brawl and swindle for better arm and legs builds.

Yep, I've got a couple of these sets (SDCC+Retail so far) and they're fun to go all 'Scramble City' with, swapping/mixing and matching limbs :).

You can build some really cool combinations of weapons out of all of their guns too. All the pegs and holes on them allow them to combine in a ton of different ways.

Now there's an idea for a third-party project - a voyager sized Onslaught that can still combine with the rest.
