    Has anyone tried the Crossfire and Munitioner add-ons with Energon version of Bruticus? Does anyone have thoughts on this and if you have tried it, can you post pics for us to see how it looks? I just wondered because I am not spending $90 for a ROTF Bruticus if it looks good on the other version. Thanks!

    IMO I dont think the colors are to nice at all for Energon Bruticus.
    I think the ROTF color scheme leans more towards a military aspect color. The energon onslaughts bright blue, Vortexes Purple and Brawls Bright green just dose not say Military to me.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to go with this setup too as I only have Energon Onslaught right now but getting a couple limbs from a fellow TFW'er. Who knows, I was thinking of maybe flat blacking Onslaught and the other two limbs when I receive them. I'll see if my brother could air brush them for me as I will leave him combined at all times.
    Also, I'm hoping that the Bruticus set gets re-released again as I do not want to fork a lot of money for the ROTF Bruticus set that it's going for right now. My wish is that Walmart have a Black Friday of a Bruticus set this year. :D 
    I know, wishful thinking but it could happen and I could see more darker colors for this guy too. :D ream:

    I bought the RotF set, but when I put it together with my energon set, I was happy with it. In a realistic sense, no, its not accurate per se. However, I felt that it was closer to a G1 color scheme with Onslaught's blue. I think I would have preferred the Brawl from the RotF set due its so not-so-bright green/olive color, but I'm not going to complain for now. I might pick up Brawl from a loose auction one day (where I'm sure it'll show up), but I'm happy.

    I'm happy I have the Universe Bruticus Maximus, just looks that bit more mature to me even though Onslaught isn't accurate. I do have two Energon Barricades as well, so I can swap at my leisure.

    Thanks for the tip! Sorry, I didn't think to look there first.

    I'd take any set I could find for a decent price.

    There's been a shit-ton of Bruticus pictures on this site since the add-ons have been out and I actually think I like the different colors that some of these older sets have.

    No Problem, as you can see I used Energon Superion Maximuis as well, since I actually like the more vibrant colors to the duller ROTF colors.
