Thanks to both Seibertronian Shauyaun and Twitter user Snakas, we now have images of the next 2 combiners making their way into Earth Wars: Optimus Maximus and Bruticus! The 2 new combiners are both 5 bot combiners instead of 6, so they should be slightly easier to collect. Bruticus follows his Combiner Wars toy design faithfully minus his thighs being turned 90 degrees like several fan modes. Optimus Maximus is weird: he follows his 'Ultra Prime' color scheme with his 'Optimus Maximus' limb design, but instead of the combined mode chest we are used to, he instead uses his Masterpiece MP-10 chest design with the little yellow spoiler/ax that came with Rodimus, who is not part of the set, making his design very.... interesting. Check out the new images below, which include the upcoming new cover screen, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I just noticed Bruticus also has Onslaught's arms by his sides (like Hot Spot) instead of on his shoulders where the tabs are on the toy. It helps his cannons stand out but also makes him look more like his mold mate.

I'm kinda WTF on Optimus Maximus's chest design. Why not just use the toy design that can, in turn, easily translate to a Menasor design down the road? (surely you've all noticed them introducing more Stunticons on the down-low)

As far as collecting Bruticus goes, I have 60% of him: 3* Swindle, Brawl, and Blast Off, and also a 4* Blast Off. Meanwhile for Devy I have 3* Scrapper and Long Haul and 4* Mixmaster and Scavenger. So overall I have 60% of Bruticus and 67% of Devastator. Yet I expect to finish Brute more quickly.

Also strange if that for Bruticus, his chest and crotch armour fly onto him after everyone combine - despite Onslaught having that armour on his vehicle and robot mode models like the CW toy.

Well, ya know, 5 instead of 6!

I have 2 of each team, so I'm already farther along towards Brute than Devy!

In all seriousness, though, the character acquisition system this game uses is one of the worst, if not THE worst, I've ever experienced in gaming.

There is absolutely no way to work towards earning a specific character that you're missing to complete one of these combiners.

I have every piece needed to form a 3* Superion EXCEPT Alpha Bravo. Had this since the combiners were first introduced in to the game, and each and every time I open a crystal it's like simply rolling a thousand dice and hoping that I get the one permutation from the RNG that gives me the missing bot.

I enjoy the gameplay, but the character acquisition system has me teetering on the brink of deleting the game entirely. It's just not fun to grind events and save up shards to have zero payoff.

Got a 3* crystal from shards.

Got a 3* Soundwave.

Not a dupe.

Probably would have preferred a dupe.

Wait, you didn't already have 3 star Soundwave?

See, there's a very easy way to get all the characters: Spend boatloads of money on crystals! :D What's the problem here?

Got enough shards for a 3* crystal.

I only have 6 3*s.

Got a Dupe Brawl.

Nope. He's probably the last of the original line up that I didn't have as a 3*

So you're either still playing the beta, or you have Devastator and all the Combaticons. Which is it?

I have Devastator already and all the Combaticons... So it was an anticipatory, preemptive hit of smugness that compelled me to try and lord it over others, the Decepticon way.

Soundwave isn't terrible - especially after his recent buff, 5% increase to strength and health.
He's not, say, Vortex or Thundercracker. Ignoring that the former has for obvious reasons taken on increased value...

Oh ... well ... that's a fail because yeah, I have Devastator AND all the Combaticons as well.

Plus the majority of people in this thread are Decepticon players so attempting to make any of them jealous is pretty much a waste of time. None of us care enough as long as we have Autobots to beat up :-P
