It's a shame Takara didn't whip up a couple of new guns for Onslaught and Bruticus. To keep their G1 silhouettes, you need to keep the guns attached to Onsalught's and Bruticus' backs. That leaves the team leader and the gestalt form without any firearms. I guess fisticuffs will have to suffice?

To be fair, Bruticus' bios do specify he's one of the overall strongest transformers. Plus every time he fought in the cartoon he either used his fists, Vortex' blades and then there was the one time he used Shockwave.

His fists do have guns built into them so he doesn't need to remove the guns from his back. Onslaught is a different story. I had to give a 3rd party gun to him.

Blast Off would be better if he had a darker brown in my opinion. Still looks a little odd to me. Good looking set on everyone else though.

Agreed, though you do see some of the "proper" dark brown coloring peppered about his robot mode and alt mode, it's just that it's more of a highlight color instead of the main color, which is that light brown. If they had swapped those browns around, I think it would have worked out quite nicely, with light brown highlights to help break up the dark pallet of the original toy and show model a bit. C'est la vie.

I'll second this... This lighter brown color is a bit surprising as well as a little disappointing.
While I don't really mind this color on the chest plate of Brut, on Blast-off it's a little much.
In terms of appearances, I also think Onslaught's blue is a little saturated; should be more of a slate blue.
But other than those couple issues, I think this set looks good. With the PE hands/feet it should be amazing.

Talking of colours being off... I really wish Brawl was actually green.

You know, all previous images of UW Blast Off made his brown look like copper, but the lighting in these pics makes it look downright orange.

lol, called it 'orange-off', well, it looks like natural light, so, unless it's a painted prototype, he's gonna be orange :-P

Hey, I honestly don't care, but everyone crapped on me for saying that he would be orange, and yet here we are. I would buy an orange (TT) blast-off, if hasbro released it for May mayhem, it would help set him apart from :HASBRO:-off, so, I couldn't care less personally.

That said, I do think this is a misstep for TT, as it really doesn't match up with the show (where they are clearly drawing the deco from)

Well, either way, I agree it looks orange. Maybe burnt orange, but orange none the less.
It is a little weird for TT, but oh well... I'm still excited for the set.

Either way, whether it's orange or brown, I don't think it matters all that much since this isn't Blast Off's cartoon body anyway. It's an upgraded version of it from after the era of G2.

Looking forward to bruticus. Looks perfect to me and I hope blast off will be a takara only release.

Wait, why do you want it to not be released by Hasbro as well?

They go out of their way to homage the original cartoon models even when the toy designs don't line up (fake grille on Swindle for example) so where it's fictionally set doesn't really matter except for Grand Galvatron, who is a departure from the norm for all of his components. It goes to great lengths to look like the cartoon model but then deviates in certain ways, which is odd for Takara and subject to criticism.

Yyyeah, Takara is pretty clearly aiming for G1 cartoon accuracy with this - right down to the animation error of Blast Off as Bruticus' chest - so as much as I don't like them taking that route, it is what they're going for and hence the set as a whole should be judged by that merit.
