    That's awesome man. Looking at your G1 Combaticons, you only have Blastoff and Vortex left to go! Also, look into Alternators Swindle. He's a pretty kickass figure.

    Congrats, I got mine a few days ago and all I can say is that picture do the figure no justice.

    I pulled up the flap on Brawl to make his chin thicker at the knee.
    Swindle remains unchanged.
    All I did with Vortex was condence the elbow flap to make the arm shorter.
    Blast-off got shortened buy flipping his arms around (hard to explain but others have done it) I succeeded in getting the hands to clip back together.

    With all this done the figure is very nice. Is it perfect? Can it compete with $300-$600 3P combiners? Not really but that doesn't make this shit.

    I hope this mould sells well so we can see more combiners and with more budget put behind them.

    I won't lie, even though that SDCC 2012 exclusive figure Bruticus looks like ass, the box and packaging looks pretty sweet. It almost makes me want one.

    I'd buy him for $60.00 not for the price He goes for on the secondary market ; which is odd that I am indifferent to him as I don't dislike the other FOC toys (aside from the Voyagers) and I own most other versions of the Combaticons (My Operation Combination set is a knock off and I still don't have a complete G2 set) and I never bothered with the last Reissue but I have all the 3 colours Ruination was made in and Valdigus and an Original 80's one and the Copper boxed 90's Euro Classics ones. and Both The Superlink and Energon one and the Universe Asian Market one too.(Same as the ROTF one). and other stuff like multiple Onslaughts and Swindles and Brawl and the FP add ons.

    So it's not like I don't like the Characters but there's something about these that has me planning to buy the carded retail ones and maybe Japanese set if they include Microns with them ; But not The G2 set or the game colour set. And if I buy the Wreckers-Ruination set it would only be for the characters not the combiner.

    Which is odd really as I fully intend to try to complete my set of WFC toys eventually buy buying United Megatron, Cliff and Optimus & Soundwave.

    Maybe if Amazon put some more of the G2 ones up I might get them but I was not in a hurry before and I'm still not now. They remain a long way down the list with the likes of Binaltech Arcee or Device Label Grimlock as things I might buy one day if I get around to it.

    I still think Universe Onslaught would kick FoC Bruticus's ass.

    Oh you lucky person. I really hope Takara does their own version in a game accurate colour scheme or that the demand/price for this fella goes down.

    BTW as you've opened it can Vortex go into a jet mode like the game?

    Thanks, it's a bummer he can't do it but maybe a 3rd party will do an upgrade or something. I've already got the G2 version pre-ordered so I'll keep your tip in mind :D  .
