That is some damn nice boxart. They're really going all out with him here.
God I want that Vortex. So bad.

Nah, probably just some random techno. But all the voices & sound effects are definitely from the Japanese TF series.

I bought Grand Galvatron, and I have to say that I am incredibly impressed by the box art. My first thought on seeing this story was that the Bruticus box art is just gorgeous.

I love how it looks apart from Blast-off. The brown is way too light. They should have kept the darker brown. This poo brown doesn't work for me at all. This set just went from a 9 to a 7 for me. I hope Takara decides to go with the darker brown for the release and please give Bruticus/Onslaught a gun or two that he can hold. It can't be the guns on his back you need to have that for his silhouette.

Agreed on the weapon front, I'm a little surprised they didn't put Legends Shockwave in the box, just so Bruticus could have a weapon to hold. The Onslaught guns are totally necessary for the silhouette, 100% agreed.

As for Blast Off, he's baby shit brown in this set; CW Swindle is baby shit brown for Hasbro. Talk about shitty opitions! :lol: :lol:

I'd have actually said Hasbro blast-off was the shit brown version, the takara one looks like a slightly brighter more milk-chocolatey brown.

But that is entirely dependent on our diets, i suppose :-?

Yyyyyyyeah, I don't know what it is that you guys are eating, but if yall's poop is coming out that light/that copper a shade of brown, instead of a much darker shade of brown like Hasbro's CW Blast Off, then I'd very much advise that you all see a doctor about that, cuz that does not sound normal. /:)

Takara wont be giving him an extra gun and they will not be releasing Blastoff in a different shade. These images are final product images, there will be no changes from them which has been the case for every single release so far.

I always thought Brawl was the one that looked most like poop.

In terms of the actual sculpt definitely.


Which is another place where the takara decco wins out for me.


You can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter.

Perhaps...some forum admin might give us the dignity of placing all the "which combaticon looks like which color of stool" comments to its own thread? ...just a suggestion, but it is still early on the west coast and I haven't even had breakfast yet.

Onslaught and Vortex look great, especially super sexy secret agent Vortex. The rest are kinda meh. I would be happy to pick up that Blast Off mold if he ever reaches the states.

I still think Bruticus is one of the better looking combiners in this line oops, wrong thread. In the CW line, Grand Galvatron takes the cake for UW ;)^

Well, Galvatron pretty much always was a d***head.

I'm not going to step in the Blast-Off argument, though. Too messy.

It was actually your comments which swayed me to just buy the Hasbro version when I saw the price drop. And you were right. It does have a great vaiety in mold use. If it was released earlier in the line, I am sure I would have loved him even more with the added novelty of some molds and of the combiner system.

I like those colors, expecially Onslaught and Votrex, but for the other three I think I prefer the Hasbro figure overall.

And since everyone is talking about the Gun: I ended up giving Bruticus the Barrel from my Combiner Wars Cyclonus. Not sure what I will do with the back stock. Obviously, the Galvatronus gun doesn't work the same way, but if you have a Spare CW Cyclonus now,

Perhaps it is another attempt at being accurate to the animated series? I mean...I cannot recall aside from using Shockwave in "The Revenge of Bruticus", him ever having a large gun. Heck even in Headmasters he fought with a light saber once, but not a gun that I can recall...

He didnt have his own gun in the series. He used his fists mostly. And also used his arm as a buzzsaw, which the takara version can fullfill :D

The revenge of bruticus was one of my absolute favourite episodes as a kid. Can't wait to find some tiny army men to stand in for the sentinels and reenact those scenes.

Though, thinking back to it, theres this scene where bruticus says to shockwave something like "you control giant sentinels, when you defeated cybertron is ours." Which is weird, aside from the fact that he refers to himself as both an individual and collective in the same dialogue, the sentinel robots that shockwave is training are tiny. I wonder if the orignial script called out for the gigantic omega supreme style guardian robots under shockwaves command before someone pointed out in a meeting late on that omega supreme is the last of his kind.

Starscream's Brigade + Revenge of Bruticus are just two of the best G1 episodes period imo. Maybe I'm biased because I adore the combaticons, but the two episodes just really grew on me. Starscream getting his own little army and finally staging an actual mutiny against Megatron - and for a bit winning! - while each of the combaticons unlike a lot of combiner teams actually show off some very nice individual personalities; they're the most well-defined of any combiner team imo which is a big part of their appeal. Hell, even the Stunticons get to show off some personality in literally not giving a toss about Megatron. They're a bunch of junkies lmao.
I think the "referring to self as individual and a group" is a hint at how a combiner's mind might work... but maybe I'm looking into it too much as a cartoon. IDW goes into it much better... though it unfortunately had to come with the travesty of Combiner Wars.
But yeah, those two episodes are a ton of fun. It leaves a lasting impression on me that the Combaticons are part of Starscream's personal army that'd ally with him against Megatron one day; along with maybe the seekers. Always a cool thought - an army of jets flanked by this humongous monster of destruction.
