larger, bulkier, meaner.
make it so.
I certainly wouldn't mind. Onslaught looks waaaay out of proportion with the limbs in combined mode. Combiners don't seem to work well if all the robots are the same size; unless it's Devastator.
I think his waist and torso may compress down more than they do in the pictures. The toy looks more like a G1 Onslaught, tall and lanky, but not like the FOC 'Slaught, sadly enough. I don't buy third party, if that's your cup of tea I say they go for it.
I'm glad I don't like FOC. Saves me some money. But yeah, that Bruticus needs help. Hope someone does something for you guys.
lol the last thing his torso needs is to compress into something smaller.
he should have been a voyager plain and simple. I understand why they kept him at a deluxe but it really shows how limited they were with him. He doesn't seem to shine in any one of his three modes. His wheels have unsightly ports on them and his vehicle mode just seems kinda....sparse. His robot is a bit thin and his combiner mode is lanky as well, plus its quite hollow from behind.
He could have been better engineered as a voyager, would have made a better toy all around and imo would have made a better combiner torso as well.
I'm buying the set regardless. Hopefully someone will at the very least release add on parts to bulk up his torso and give him some more G1 accents.
You should buy it just in case. You never know which limbs you'll need should a 3rd party ever do an upgrade.
If a 3rd party does work on this guy, I think they'll replace Vortex and Blast Off.
Yeah, you never know what they will do. Today's turd could possibly tomorrows trophy.
I'm getting all of em but I reckon my classics shelf will sub out onslaught and vortex for the Henkei and DOTM chug figs respectively.
As for bruticus I reckon slaught needs a clip on armor to bulk him up or a whole new fig are needed.
im buying this one for my son. he needs a decent combiner. i can pass on the whole line though. except that shockwave. ;-) that will be in my classics collection for a while at least.
haha, didnt think about that. maybe ill get 1 moc for me then.
really vortex and onslaught are pretty bad. blast off isnt that good either. if i was a third party id just make my own complete bruticus.
OK, new hands, new Onslaught !
I'd be happy with add-on armor for Onslaught.
Absolutely. We all know how appalling ROTF/Energon Bruticus was before he was breathed on.
From appalling to appealing with just one $100 makeover.
they should replace the whole thing!...every one of those figures...FoC Brute sucks so much a$$! (IMO)...
he's an complete waste of space next to Hercules...not even close to being in the same league...
a total ground up G1 style Brute is needed from a 3rd party...no more add-on kits...start from scratch and make something as beautiful as Hercules or Giant...
I don't want another onslaught. I'd rather they make heads and guns so we can mod these guys into WFC versions of other teams like the predacons.
There's also Predaking.
Third Party FoC Brut? Nah... but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if there were a 3rd Party upgrade kit for it though.
I have to disagree, I think the FoC Brute is pretty good for what it is, and a crossfire style upgrade kit would make it shine. If they did it right it could even collapse into a trailer for Onslaught.
