    Ok, so on my crazy search to get a Bruticus built, I ended up doign a lot of deals with a lot of people and ended up with three versions of bruticus, and upgraded them all with FP kits.

    But, I still have spare limbs:

    If you were me what would you do? Sell them? Keep them for spare parts? Go for the quintuple and get two more FP sets?
    Just kinda' wondering what to do with these.

    Honestly, I'd fucking love to trade them. Unfortunately, I just bought Jetfire, so that leaves Voyagers Inferno and RTS Grappel

    If you've got em Jazz,, let's do some business. I'd much rather do a partial trade than a sale.

    I would hold out to see what's up with the new bots FP is releasing.

    If you can pop off that plug on the jeep, you might be able to make a Battle Gaia using parts from several bots.

    Well I've got those preordered, and my plan is to swap them out with the ones from my nexus Bruticus bc the colors are so bright, and then I'll get a Munitioner and explorer to display out in bot mode!

    You could use different limbs on different ones at different times - I actually prefer to use Blast-Off & Swindle with Munitioner & Explorer (rather than Vortex and Brawl) as I like the way the colours match - and i'm not precious about it looking like the cartoon or not.

    I'm not sure how you ended up with spare Barricade moulds though.

    I'd consider buying some of them off you if you don't want them.. (especially if you have the accessories / energon chips / Energon Weapons for them.

    Gah! Give me the ones I need! I am a poor starving artist!


    Barring that at least keep a barricade for a possible devy kitbash. He's popular for mixmaster.

    You could keep them. I think they're pretty good bots in their own rights.

    I'm kind of in the same boat TJ. I've got a Swindle and a Brawn as well that's spare from the set, and I have no idea what to do with them. I'm willing to sell them, but I don't know what the best price is to ask for them.

    Well if I was you, I would have to go to a BBA Meeting (Bruticus Buyer Anonymous). But asking here is a good first step.

    Realistically, just get the other two Bruticus sets. You know those things will skyrocket in value in like 6 months and you can sell off a complete set for even more then just the FP Limbs or the limbs by themselves. So if you end up not liking them, then you can always sell em.

    You could always also do, Bot Mode, Alt Mode, Combiner mode. You would have enough to do that. I would still get the two other FP sets because they look better with those accessories.

    Do you really think that $40 for two Bruticuses is what I should sell them for, when 1 sells for over $100?

    ... huh?

    Ya know, that may just be the tickey, bc realistically, even if I'm just keeping hem as spares, the other FP kits would make them look better while they're chillin' lol
