    I stopped at Target Saturday and picked up 1 of 2 Bruticus Maximus figures.

    Looks pretty good and happy that I got Superions "sparing buddy" finally.
    Happy hunting!!!

    I'm probably going to break down and buy this for the sake of Combaticons. Sigh.

    ...I still don't understand why they didn't switch Blast-Off's and Swindle's alt modes. :sly:

    Damn.. After buying the new waves in the last couple of days, I thought I would take a break in TF buying for a week or two. This will be the last one. I swear.....

    cause they are straight repaint of the energon combinder bruticus maximus. that would require two brand new molds for this set

    I know that, what I meant was why didn't they give the copter to Blast-Off since he was a shuttle and the tank to Swindle since he was a combat vehicle. There's no need for new molds, all they had to do was switch colors. Oh well.

    I guess "Blast Off" sounded better for a tank than a helicopter.

    Looks good, but I haven't seen the FP Bruticus add-on appendage set.. so I'm curious to see what he'd look like all juiced up.

    No kidding, I still haven't caught up with the Encore, Henkei and Masterpiece releases yet. I definitely want the Bruticus Encore but will probably settle on this for the time being.

    Damn, everything's been coming out in the last couple of days. I'll have to keep an eye out for this, since I really enjoy the Energon combiner molds, but I'm not as excited about this one as Superion, which I wanted for the appendage upgrade.

    'Bout time this one started showing up in stores. Do want indeed. Oh, but I still have to catch up with all the other figures that have been sighted over the last three days

    Leader Jetfire
    Deluxe Jolt
    Deluxe ice cream truck Twins (maybe)
    Voyager Long Haul
    and now Bruticus Maximus

    Too many awesome figures to buy, too much cash to cough up. :(

    kay, so with this that makes:

    Jetfire
    Jolt
    The truck twins
    Long Haul
    Devastator

    and now Bruticus. THEN I can put all my attention towards Classics and other things.

    DPCI is for assortments, not individual items, so the DPCI is the same as Superion's DPCI. Thus the DPCI trick might not work, if there are Superions on the shelf, workers might not go back and check for more, plus what's in stock and in the back could just be more Superions, not necessarily Bruticus.

    COOL.

    I really love Vortex's colors. One thing I always hated about energon bruticus was the purple and orange choppers. Can't say I'm fond of Swindles colors. Would've preferred if Reverb got released still.
