    Fansproject munitioner is basically swindle walking off the tv screen in the 80's onto your desk, with added 2010 awesomeness.

    Badass, Chris. I'm also kinda wanting him myself. He's just a cool little Swindle.

    Huh, I just realized, if you had the feet but no Swindle, you could still make Bruticus with 2 of the Energon tank legs. This sounds like a job for TJ Duckett!

    :lol  win!

    As for the figure: Looks pretty slick man. Honestly, it doesn't fit the "classics" line because it's got way too much of that FP manga edge to it, but it's so awesome that it doesn't matter. It's size is perfect, it looks great, and that's all there is to it. Very poseable as well. All in all, a fun figure.

    I'd like to throw my hat in for the spare parts as well though, because honestly, with all these Bruticii I got, it'd be nice to have the spare parts.

    Not quite. Though they look similar the posts/ports are slightly different between the two. This makes the tank mold unable to fit any more than basically resting. Trying to use it like this would see that foot constantly disconnected and a lot of fallen Bruticus.

    I have to wait to get Munitioner and Explorer until AFTER BotCon, as much as I REALLY want 'em.
