Seibertron has something special for you, a review of Hasbro's Generations Combiner Wars Bruticus in full combined glory. So far, reviews have concentrated on individual members (Onslaught, Brawl, Blast Off, Swindle, Vortex and Legends Class Shockwave) but we thought it would be important to highlight the main point of these toys, the fact that they combine into Bruticus! Anyone still on the fence can check out the Seibertron.com exclusive video review below to see how the combined form looks like in hand. Galleries for all of the Combiner Wars Combaticons will be available soon.

Hasbro is laughing at us... all the way to the bank. :(

Some of the repaints do make sense. The only CHUG toys Ironhide got were a BotCon exclusive, and not everyone can attend those, and that shitty Universe figure. Even the Takara one looks terrible! Universe Prowl was awesome, so I'm going to use him as my Prowl, once I find one that doesn't fall victim to sticky paint virus in five minutes. G2 teams are just cool.

Oh no, His shoulders are mis-transformed in combined mode! #-o

They're supposed to rotate up 90 degrees to set them apart from defensor, the chest shield even tabs in on the shoulders when you put them in that configuration.

I'm still not a fan of Combiner Wars but if I had to choose a combiner to purchase I would go with Bruticus. Nice colour scheme that works well over the whole gestalt. And I have the nostalgia feel cos Bruticus was the only combiner I had as a kid (I had bits and pieces of other teams like Hun-grr and Cuthroat though I never even tried combining them with Combaticons).

I think it'll be a miracle if we ever see Predaking cos that's a whole team that Hasbro can't just lazily reuse previous CW molds for.

Is that different from this?

Hope BBTS gets the voyagers in soon - can't wait to have Bruticus in hand! Pity about Brawl's waist. Maybe some duct tape will fix it...

Picture shows the right config, but the video has the wheels facing backwards on the shoulders instead of up.

Shouldn't have watched them... They're just teasing me. :(

If there's no money shot featuring the Bruti-clan, I give up on life.

I think they should be getting theirs within a week. My supplier is also expecting them sometime next week.

The only thing that annoys me is that I wish Onslaught had an additional handgun so that his twin cannons can stay on his back in robot mode. FOC Onslaught had the same issue.

Can't say I'm a fan of the change. If that means when I get Bruticus that I'll have 'mis-transformed' it by keeping them the way Defensor does, then so be it.

I comment on this in the video ... the instructions show it down, but the complete mode shows it up. It shows rotating them down as one of the last steps. I didn't like it up so I left it down so that the focus was on his "proper" silhouette. I'll scan the last bit of instructions so you guys don't think I'm crazy!

I guess that leaves it open for the owner to choose what they preffer. I like your choice Big Boss!

I knew Bruticus came with a can of whoop-ass, but he also comes with a can of compressed air? Incredible! :P :-P :o)

He looks great. Onslaught's colors are so spot on, and nice to look at. The Bruticus head is awesome. Vortex's colors are great too. Makes having one more of that mold easier to swallow.
Despite some of the over all issue's with some of the figures, I can't wait to get this squad.

They're in Shockwave's instructions. Is there something specific you'd like to see or know?

FYI ... I merged the two videos together and edited out one of the long scenes where the camera fell over. It's not the best video review, galleries are my specialty. Here it is again without further ado!

Well, you can leave them down, but I don't think they'll tab to the chestplate, thus leading to menasor-itis - where the combined form is wibbly and pulls itself apart when trying to pose it.
