    I'm not making much of this until an official announcement. "Rumor" could just be some guy speculating that they're going to re-issue them due to Hasbro re-releasing ROTF Bruticus.

    I hope they reissue them I have 3/5ths of Bruticus waiting on an Right Arm and Right Leg...... Plus I rather not pay $150 to $200+ for 2 SCOUT Sized figures and Add-on parts..... plus no one sells em seperately without the damn ROTF/Universe set......

    Cool, the more people that can get these, the better.

    If this turns out to be true, then hopefully they'll reissue city commander when the asia exclusive Ultra Magnus comes out, because I missed out on that one EVERY SINGLE TIME it was released due to money shortages.

    There'd be too many minor differences between the original and rumored reissue I'd say... but well... if FP chose to reissue the set, altered or not, it'd be win-win for both FP and Takara.

    More folks will go from being soso about buying the Takara set to... ZOMG must-buy for FP Bruticus! Enough folks here are probably nit-picky enough to get an even more G1-accurate FP set as well... and then there's folks that missed out on the original version anyway so...

    I just created a picture of the FP set with the Asian Exclusive figures in photoshop. Hopefully this will help people decide on whether or not they want this set. Let me know what you all think :)

    I thought the first set was already G1 colors?

    The first set included G1 colored figures, but accessories that matched the Revenge of the Fallen Combaticons team.

    For all we know, the G1 comment might have only referred to the accessories like the hands, shoulders, backpack, crotch plate, feet, etc.

    Who knows? Maybe they will turn up the saturation in color to make them appear more like their animated counterparts?

    If the rumor is true, I hope there are some definite differences between the original upgrade sets and the re-releases sets. I mean, knowing Fans Project, we aren't just talking about different colored accessory pieces. Maybe they'll give the characters different combining guns, and instead of a sniper rifle, maybe some other sort of huge cannon? They'll amaze us one way or another. Although, in all honesty, I would settle for just a straight repaint as well.

    Darn it people, why are you hating on such a cool figure? The Energon combiner molds were excellent, especially for their time. I know they're not G1-accurate, but they're fun toys that did a better job of modular combination than anything before them, if only in terms of engineering. Give 'em some love. :2c:

    Had a feeling this was going to happen right after I sold mine. Guess it was a good thing I sold it when I did.

    It's more of a bluish green actually. It was kind of hard to get though :(

    They both are bad but at least BM was a little closer to being a complete combiner. FOC Bruticus out the box looks like its missing alot of parts.
