    nope, that would make a bunch of extra parts in a box, but the figures are a big part of why i'm buying them. they will probably spend about 50% of the time in bot and in combined mode

    I am. Don't have a Bruticus either, and won't get one unless I get a good deal on one. I won't go crazy and spend too much on a Bruticu set, so I ordered them for the figure first.

    I like Swindle. If he wasnt fifty bucks I'd buy another just to display him...

    But I'm displaying them all as Bruticus.

    I have them preordered for Bruticus, but I've been thinking of ordering a second Explorer (?) to serve as a Classics Blast Off by himself since he's not a character I would expect to get his own mold or even a repaint. I still have some hope for Classics Hound to be repainted into Swindle some day...but yeah, even individually they do fit into the Classics lineup quite nicely.

    My Bruticus is packed away for at least Six months to a year.
    When I buy these guys I wont be able to use them the right way for a very long time but I'm still getting them. Will just pass the guns out to other cons

    I bought two sets and an extra Energon Barricade so I can have two complete sets. One as the Combaticons in bot mode and one as Bruticus.

    These are also my first 3rd party TFers. I have the Bruticus, just anxious to get them so I can have a "classics" Bruticus.

    ^hope you are right, cause between MP Grimmy, SDCC Blaster, P/CP, and random stuff, my Credit Card is not liking me, and the period resets tomorrow. Still able to pay it off, but I really hate having big CC bills when most of it is plastic crack.

    I bought ROTF Bruticus for $50.00 shipped from a guy in Canada 4 or 5 months ago in anticipation for the FP Bruticus set. So now I am just waiting on FP to release my set so I can set him up on my FP collection shelf.

    Initially, I ordered them just as stand alone figures, just because I thought they were great on their own. After seeing more and more of the amazing pictures of Bruticus combined with these two, I caved in and bought the Universe Bruticus Maximus giftset as well...
    The giftset is still sealed as we speak, as I have little to no interest in the official set (... although after just looking at some online pictures, I have to say it's actually sort of nice ...). But once I receive Explorer and Munitioner... Oh boy!

    I traded away my ROTF Bruticus set, so now there is no way I'm going to spend the money on these 2 sets. Not b/c they aren't awesome, but because there are way too many other cool transformers to waste my money on. Still though, as long as the QC isn't poor, I think that these 2 sets will go down as THE best 3rd party transformers.
