Tell you what: Bruticus has an awesome case of VHS that works so well for him! It really does work! not to mention how different he and Hot Spot truly are and how different they look and transform in some cases. They did an awesome job here (and his the combiner ports: amazing) Cannot wait to get him :BOT:

Man, Bruticus looks sooo F#$KING beautiful :shock:

Onslaught looks like quite a bit of love went into making him. It's cool to see the added heel's (especially since he longer has hotspot's third-leg-backpack) and it's really cool that you don't even need to partsform the weapons if you want :BOWDOWN:



Oh, and scattershot looks really, really dumb; I'm not sure how I would feel if hasbro never made a proper scattershot if they do indeed make limbs for him. That might be doubly insulting :HEADHURTS:

I really dig Onslaught. He's impressively changed from Hot Spot. Scattershot...... I wish they'd tried harder.

Yeah, well there's still hope that hasbro will release a proper one in a possible boxset >:oP

D-Max I agree this onslaught remold is impressive in every way, it works better than I thought it would. I might have to get this set, well done. I also like this reviewers, everything is simple but well done.

The Bruticus torso looks quite nice - though I am a little unsure about what I think of him having such a darkly coloured combined mode head.


Don't play a drinking game for every time he says "Hotshot" instead of "Hotspot" in that Onslaught Video that might prove lethal.

Maybe they sank all their effort into Onslaught and had none to spare for Scattershot. Creativity is, as everyone knows, a zero-sum resource :)

Onslaught looks great. The differences between he and Hotshot, (Oops! *takes a drink*)Hotspot are cool to see. They did just enough to make it work.
Can't wait to have another Con combiner despite the troubles with Brawl. #-o

Not even gonna bother watching the Scattershot review. [-(

But don't you want to hear all about the differences from the Silverbolt mold? :P

The thing is, I think it's just a bad choice of color hues and a lack of a new combiner head. It COULD have worked (and may yet still down the line).

At it's core, the Silverbolt torso is still the best of the ones we have.

Thats the review I am watching first.

Also, people say they would like the rest of Computron to be released but I dont. This scattershot is terrible. I dont want to just own a to called Computron, I want to own an actual nice computron toy with a nice nosecone and not the crappy brawl repaint they showed for ramhorm with the teeny tiny nosecone.

I do hope to get a computron since he is the coolest combiner but I dont want him looking like anything they are offering.

They put every care they could into that mold. Probably some of Scattershots too. That is a beautiful mold. I cannot wait for it :BOT:

Haha, the red is very grating. At least they added a very slight color change to the head :lol: :BOT:

You know, the thing with Scattershot is the space ship and the robot mode almost work for me. Well enough at least, but the torso mode is just a joke.
How could Cyclonus be such a win, and Scattershit be such a lose? All they had to do was give him a Computron's head and I would have fallen for it.

I'm with Will. Even if they do the Technobots, I'm not buying it if that is the torso we are supposed to use.

In love with Onslaught (no surprise), even more so with the knowledge that we don't even have to disconnect the cannons (mucho surpriso). Can not wait for Onslaught and his merry men to show up in the mail!

The only reason, and I repeat, the only reason I plan on getting Scattorshot is because it'll be the only way for me to get Onslaught this early in the game. Everyone's individual preorders are sold out. :(

I'd be more compelled to keep Scattorshot if a) it was confirmed Technobots were on the way, b) if Abominus was also being made (I like even teams, okay?), and c) if he wasn't such a joke in robot and torso modes.

Now might be a good time to consider buying Quantron. And Maketoys is re-issuing the set individually to attract more budget oriented collectors who are disgusted with Hasbros "Silvershot". Smart move by Maketoys. They need to supplement for the loss they are going to take on Guardia.

Combiner Wars Generation 2 Bruticus Box image has shown up via :

https://twitter.com/Daim_Choc

Reports that a user of the Chinese Social Media site Weibo: "zmultiplier" has supplied an image of Bruticus in G2 deco

As follows :

The set includes a 6th Team member this time it's a repaint of Shockwave - since it's not unlike Energon Sixshot.
