    Y'know, since I've pretty much slimmed my collection down to a few G1s and Classics/Universe 2.0, I may pick this up. I had the Super Link version of the mold and loved it, I wouldn't mind having it again.

    Not bad. I might actually get this set (depending on when & where it's released). Would look nice displayed with my Classics Devastator. Onslaught especially looks nice, imo. It'll be nice to at some point see better posed pictures of these guys, but this is better than nothing. A Ruination repaint would be nice too, imo (though I'd settle for a new mold Deluxe version of Mega-Octane, or a repaint of the Ultra Onslaught mold).

    There sure seems to be a strong fanbase for Mega-Octane.

    I'm not particularly familiar with the Robots In Disguise cartoon except for Sky-Bite's popularity... is there any reason Mega-Octane has a strong following as well?

    While liked that they're re-releasing these guys for people that never got them, I really wish Hasbro would just create some new combiner classic molds.

    They know we want them, and they're guarenteed sellers.

    For me it's the fact that RID got me into TF's even though I did watch Beast Wars, and I never did watch any of G1 (wasn't born till '88). Mega-Octane is just a whole lot more nostalgic for me. Same goes for Prime turning into a fire truck and Scourge NOT being a "Nemesis Prime".

    I like the color scheme, but not sure about the red translucent parts. Hopefully they grow on me.

    Personally, I don't own the molds yet beyond the garish Club exclusive Topspin, so I look forward to these. I don't mind the red.

    Yeah... still don't like those Energon combiners no matter how they're jazzed up.

    FANTASTIC. Particularly the black Onslaught, I was afraid he and Brawl would be too close to their Energon molds color-wise, but they aren't. Only thing I'm not too fond of is the Autobot-ish red translucent parts, but that's easily overlooked.

    Well, since the Universe redeco of Superion Maximus will have transluscent blue parts, it won't look too Autobot-ish.

    The only thing I like about this guy is the more realistic green they used for Brawl. They gotta get the colors right for their namesakes at least, especially cuz they can use the right vehicles

    EDIT I guess Swindle and Vortex aren't too far off the G1 colors. I think Purple would have been the best choise for the transluscent parts

    He was saying that the red parts on Bruticus here won't look too Autobot-ish when displayed next to the Superion repaint, as it'll have blue parts.
