    Well I guess that saves you the time and effort to go and find the individual Combaticons. If you want them that is.

    Very cool. If I can't get the SDCC version for a decent price, this saves me the trouble of getting them on their own.

    Also, the colors are not based on the G2 version, this is the G2 version:

    This version is based on Energon Bruticus Maximus:

    I certainly hope that's the case. I'd love to be able to buy the whole set as a team and not have to pick them up individually.

    Okay ... so this is the mass retail released one, but as a boxset exclusive through Amazon? Shit man, this thing already has numerous outlets for purchase it's already a success.

    Personally I'm getting the SDCC color, and hope we get a repaint of Vortex down the line.

    I may go for this over the hunt to get him in 5 parts through retail. Although there is a certain antisipation, savoring and glory, to the hunt. I know I always come to love the individual members more when I get them one at a time whereas if I get them all at once I tend to favor the combined form and never get to know them individually.


    Of course, I'm aiming for the SDCC set too.

    I would absolutely buy a G2 Bruticus, even though I would never buy the Energon version.

    This fills me with false hope that the retail version will be closer to the in-game version, and the brightly colored version is Amazon exclusive.

    I hope the 3rd parties are preparing to make leg and shoulder extentions for Onslaughts torso mode and a bigger helmet for the super mode and a decent gun and new hands would be nice too.

    Sadly for a lot of people it was confirmed that the SDCC exclusive would be the more accurate deco. I feel bad for those people who don't love fugly colours.

    Fixed.

    *Looks at G2 Bruticus*

    *Looks at pictures of Energon FoC Bruticus from Botcon, with even brighter green plastic*

    Uh, yeah, we've come a long way.

    All displayed samples so far have been hand painted - it's really hard to tell how bright they'll be in person because of this.

    I REALLY can't see that high gloss, ultra contrasty paint tone making through the casting process. (Not to say I'm gonna like the end result, just saying I HIGHLY doubt the finished product can be that physically blinding without paint.)
