    Great news indeed. I'd actually get a second set to mix and match with if I didn't have to pay $200++ for it.

    that would be the only way anyone could move that turd of a figure known as Bruticus Maximus. A bigger gestalt head would be nice add-in there. His head is tiny

    This will....test my resolve. I'm paying for a pretty huge car repair bill and had promised I'd be pressing the pause button on collecting. But I do have an Energon Barricade. If these things are released at retail price, I don't see how I'd be able to pass them up.

    Anyone have a clue where they'll be released? FPC, Robot Kingdom, Big Bad Toy Store?

    How much were these when first released anyways?

    If the rumors are indeed true, I'd get the FP add-ons and the new Bruti set to keep in alt/bot modes. I even have a spare PCC Heavytread I can mod (again) as Brawl if I want to. Mixing and matching the various limbs on (my exisiting) FP Colossus would be fun too. Make it happen, FP! And throw in a chest shield while you're at it too!

    YES. I managed to find a Universe Bruticus set in a store here for $70 a few months ago. Finally I'll be able to complete it!

    Hopefully these colors will look good with the ROTF set if this rumor is true.
    I'm not against getting the new one, but if I can save myself some money by just getting this reissue I'll be a tad happier.

    Munitioner was originally more of a tan or gold color (think SDCC Swindle). I think they'll re-release it with a much brighter yellow like the main release of FOC Swindle.

    I'd think FoC colours would be more like it but then they were quite G1 so I guess its more of a slight change then whole new paint job
