I don't like the lighter brown on Blast-off, hopefully it will grow on me. I liked the darker brown a lot more, don't understand why they changed that. The other gripe is that they didn't bother to add a gun for Onslaught/Bruticus, i don't think it would've been too much to ask for. I will still get it though.

What little we see of Vortex looks much better. Don't like the color of Bruticus's chest plate though.

Hasbro repented of their slothfulness and put deluxe Groove on the market. Hopefully they will do the same with Takara's Blast-Off....

If they do hopefully they change his colours. Takara's are terrible...

It'll most likely be the same as jet blast off deco wise, which would look a lot better. Luckily for me I don't see the problem with jet blast off, so I don't care if they do or don't bring over the UW mold

I doubt that. So far, the plastic colour for all releases of bonus members was the same no? If ever we get shuttle Blastoff, there wont be much difference from the Takara one, I think. However, unlike with Groove, I am not holding out hope Hasbro brings over Blastoff. Plus, with the prices people have been charging and paying for deluxe Groove, if you want a Bruticus with a shuttle Blastoff, I dont understand why people dont just get the UW version. Unlike Defensor, this isnt an exclusive and it only costs 25$ more than getting the Hasbro version of Bruticus.

Quickslinger and Wildrider were in different colours, but since Groove was in the same colours aside from like.... The screwheads, I think he'd be the same colours. Just holding onto vain hope.
To answer your second question, mostly because unlike Defensor the colours on Bruticus are vastly different to Hasbro's - more than any other release. And to many people's eye - including mine - it's kind of horrific. So a lot of people would appreciate being able to get a shuttle blast off alone for their Hasbro Bruticus they may prefer the colours on.

He looks good, but for the money im def sticking with my hasbro, this is one of those rare cases where takara version isnt miles ahead in terms of paint job over hasbros. For me anyway. Hes like 120 more to get Takara version in canada.

I really like the Takara Bruticus, but I am partial to slavishly correct Sunbow G1 colour schemes. Every figure looks better the way Takara has done them and Blast Off is real sweet looking. Had Bruticus on pre-order up until a couple days ago when I realized I cannot afford a whole combiner this month on with the new figuarts SSJ Trunks plus Titan Returns stuff :-(

I'm expecting two Unite Warriors Bruticus sets at the end of this month, so I'm all in for light brown shuttle Blast-Off. Looks like he still retains some darker brown parts too. The superior face sculpt and G1 accurate alt mode trump Hasbro's dark brown Slingshot repaint for me.

So Skyreign will be the priciest one yet eh? That's disappointing.

Budgetary constraints have made me put a number of these on the back burner (Convoy, Galvy, and likely SkyR). Unless SkyR is drastically different than Hasby's, I think I'll be getting Grandvatronbiner first. [-(

I would consider the inclusion of Ratchet over Smokescreen as pretty drastically different, though we won't really know for certain for a few more days.

What would be perfect is if his limbs were: Hoist, Bluestreak, Ratchet, and Sideswipe. 8-}

Why?

Cos there ain't no Prowl/Streetwise/Dead End mold on the silhouette

Yeah, the limbs seen in the silhouette are the Offroad mold, the Swindle mold, the First Aid mold, and the Wheeljack mold, which pegs them as being Trailbreaker (or Hoist), Hound, Ratchet, and Wheeljack, respectively.

*fairly* certain they will keep them as Trailbraker, Hound, Wheeljack. They seem to be keeping with the 1984 TF's, with the exception of Sky Lynx obviously. I don't think they would throw a random Hoist in for no reason. As soon as this is announced, Hopefully I can just grab a CW Smokescreen, and just await this release.

I think they'll keep Trailbreaker purely because he's tooling Japan doesn't have yet. It keeps in with the only one we know is dumped (smokescreen) being the only one with absolutely no new tooling.
