Fellow Seibertronian Downshift has found Transformers Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus at Toysrus in Canada. Canada has been getting these G2 sets first so far and they usually show up in the US within a month from their first North American sighting so be sure to keep and eye out starting now!

Just to give a rundown of what this set includes. It comes with the same Bruticus components previously released by Hasbro in a G2 deco along with a redeco of Shockwave.

I had wondered when this was going to show up. Don't need Fruiticus, but he looks cool enough. I wonder why they're not doing Defensor in his G2 colors.

Maybe a box set slot got taken up by Victorion and G2 Defensor, having never been formally released, was considered the least desirable? Then again the G2 Stunticons never got released but what do I know.

Well, if you have to drop one of the four original scramble combiners; Defensor is far and away the least popular.
I would, however, also wager one hasn't been announced yet because they were waiting on deluxe groove. You could argue g2 Bruticus not waiting on uw blast off invalidates that, but on the other hand, it still comes with a figure identified as blast off. G2 menasor and superion respectively came with wildrider and slingshot so I think they'll do the same for defensor. Just needed to wait on him getting his groove back.
It would, however, result in the unusual scenario of his being the only boxset without a legends partner - otherwise you end up with two grooves.

Just spotted G2 Superion, G2 Menasor and Victorion all together in one visit to TRU!

Man are they pricey at a irregular price of $200 AUS

This ^ though you could include both grooves and just call the legends one something different.

Four fucking times now I've found deluxe Grove on amazon for 16.99. Four times now I've hit "buy it now" or added to cart. Four fucking times now I've had the transaction fail during check out because Groove fucking sells out that fucking fast. :BOOM:

Now your speaking my language! Except I recently dubbed the G2 Stunticons, the Funkticons, and they combine to form Psychadelisor. :lol: 8-)

We recently showed you a Canadian sighting of Transformers Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus on store shelves, and today care of Downshift we get a glimpse of him outside of his cardboard cage! Inspired by the wacky 90's Generation 2 color scheme, the Combaticon ensemble consists of Onslaught, Blast-Off, Brawl, Swindle, and Vortex. Also present is Shockwave, cleverly based on the Action Master colors (technically still G1, but released in 1990). See the purple camo'd Combiner below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Swindle and Blast Off actually look pretty good. The rest...eep. Even by G2 standards it's LOUD.

Onslaught looks a little plain but the rest look really nice. Shockwave looks incredible :x

Yeah, 4 small camouflage paint apps on onslaught? Compared to other ones he looks like a large TT dragstrip.

To be fair, a lot of the paint went to Bruticus' chestplate.

It's an exciting time to be G2 Bruticus, that fella is just showing up everywhere! This time the Combiner Wars Collector Set is making his appearance at ToysRus.ca for pre-order. He is looking kinda preliminary though what with the lacking picture, but will apparently ship July 26th.

That's the appeal; just being as disgustingly beautiful as possible :D

Glad ere'body likes the pics!

If there are any specific pics they'd like to see just let me know!

I honestly enjoy the G2 set more than the regular retail release. Glad I picked him up.

Blast Off and Vortex look good!

Shockwave never had a G2 colour scheme, looks like it was inspired by his Action Master toy...
