    Man, I always wanted one of these KO's. Finally snagged him on ebay a little over a week ago. Well he just arrived and snapped a few pics. I totally was thinking he would be equal in size to Predaking, but Brut just towers over him. I love this guy! I ordered some Decepticon symbols from repro and will apply them to each combaticon and the chest plate. Can't wait!

    Yeah, I know pretty steep for a KO, but the exact same set went for 150 a few weeks ago. I pretty much got a deal and since these don't show up that often I'm very pleased.

    Pretty sure I saw a complete set with either a bid or a BIN of $200 recently. So yeah, $100 is probably pretty good. I might be willing to spend that much if the timing was right. How's the quality?

    I think it's a combo of rarity and the fact that he's in basically G1 colors. If he was pink, yellow and baby blue, methinks he'd be a bit cheaper when he popped up...which would be more often, because after all, who the hell wants a giant Easter-Camo Bruticus? :redface2:

    Yeah, mine was complete with boxes and instructions. No metal parts from what I can tell. It's high quality plastic. You can take a look at this completed auction to get more details. Mine is the same exact set but not from the same seller.

    Oh, that be a giant G2 one in that auction. Remember..Baldigus/Ruination has logical colors for the individual vehicles (well..except for that blue tank nonsense, ZOMG Takara>Hasbroz!). G2 looks like somebody ate one of those big ass bags of Starbursts and then threw up on a Bruticus.
