    I don't know about anyone else, but I intend only to pick up Swindle from the combaticon lot. I know that the whole point of them is to combine them into Bruticus, but I don't have that kinda money right now, and I don't have a Swindle toy yet, so I'll only be picking him up.

    Anyone else not intending to complete Bruticus at the moment?

    I have no intention of putting together the retail version of Bruticus.

    Sorry, no. I need a complete set.

    But if I was only to get one, I'd either get Blast-Off or Brawl.

    I imagine a Bruticus with four Swindles constantly, thanks to everyone raving about him as a limb.

    I'm considering getting parts of Ruination and Bruticus then having it be a third faction.

    i'm only getting Onslaught for two reasons

    1. i can never have too many Onslaughts :D 

    2. they've brightened him in the game so i'll swap him out with the SDCC Onslaught whenever i feel like it cause i think the SDCC Onslaught's colors are based off of his g1 box-art

    I'm gonna get the G2 ones and the retail ones. I'll get the Ruination retools too. Once I'm done with that, I might try hunting down the SDCC one purely for completion sake, but that isn't too important.

    I am considering getting one of the Autobot pieces and repainting it into FOC DoubleDealer.

    Isn't Onlaught the worse of the set?

    I'm getting Dudicus and Ruination, so I'm not assembling a third version of the combiner. That said, I suppose there's a possibility that I'll get one or two of the retail Combaticons because they are at such an impulse-buy price.

    On the other hand...Onslaught only really looks good as a torso (so maybe if I want Dudicus to be less yellow), Swindle is supposedly the best mold but his head's pretty wrong to display as Swindle, and retail Brawl's color is actually kind of sickening. Vortex has a silly color and a rotor hand. Retail Blast Off just doesn't excite me as a solo piece either. So maybe it's not that big of a possibility.

    Repurpose him as FoC Astrotrain and you're good to go!

    I'd like to get all of them, but If I had to choose I'd only take Blast Off and Vortex.

    Based on his reviews, his truck mode kinda sucks. His robot mode looks okay. Shame you can't plug his duel cannons on his back.

    The only retail versions I'll get are Swindle and Brawl. Their colors are more brighter and less dull than the SDCC versions.
