    I didn't see this mentioned before but just in case I will post this.
    I took some pictures of the Fansproject Bruticus figures at BotCon. Since it was at a dealer table and not one of the actual Hasbro displays (of course) perhaps it was overlooked.
    If this is redundant, my apologies.

    Did they say if those stands were coming with those figures? Or are they a separate piece again, like with Defender?

    I like the way the package art lines up on the side of the boxes. That's pretty cool!

    man I just wish I owned Energon Barricade instead of universe Onslaught, I think the energon one looking more like Onslaught would look great with these upgrades and limbs

    What I want to know is when they are actually going to get released. The release date has been pushed back multiple times.

    just for saying that, mac and cheese should be prohibited from owning or touching the set.

    Ever.

    Do these have die cast? This is a rare time of me not wanting die cast on the figures. That way they feel like they belong with the other figures.

    I spoke to Curt at Botcon,from TFSource, on when they were going to ship. He said at the end of July. I was very happy to hear that. There was a booth at Botcon that had close to 10 or more ROTF Bruticus sealed, they didnt last long after people saw the display at TFSource.

    I spoke to the guys from the Fansproject table. They said that they tried really hard to get it ready for Botcon but just couldn't make the deadline so it should be soon. The reason that it was at the TFSource table was because they didn't want to put it at the Fansproject table and have a mad rush. Curt asked them if he could display it at TFSource and take preorders and they said okay.
