    But seriously, did anyone else see those hands on the back of Bruticus's legs at Botcon?

    Most of us know already.

    Pretty interesting, but I don't really care. Being able to swap limbs doesn't make that big of a difference for me. I'd rather have something excel at being just an arm or a leg rather than being mediocre at doing both.

    Interchangeable? That's pretty damn awesome to me.

    It's been known for some time that each limb will be interchangeable. It's so if people want 4 Swindles they can do so. Or if people can't find all 4 limbs.

    I didn't know this, but it makes Bruticus even better.

    Well, I'm gonna want one of each if I do the combiner thing, but it'll be cool to try Blast Off & Vortex as legs and Brawl/Swindle as arms. I might like one of em better that way, and like you said, it'll be cool for people who want multiples for a more streamlined look or something too.

    The designer himself mentioned in an interview, but honestly it was easy to miss and it wasn't commented a lot.

    I don't read interviews, so that makes since. :p 
    Kept on calling the FOC Insecticon guy "Prime Insecticon" at Botcon, probably sounded pretty stupid to those around me.

    I hope you aren't serious. Please remember that others, including myself, will be trying to find a single one. It's rather mean to seek 4.

    The designer was quite. Lear that he did it because he expects people to have difficulty finding all five at retail. Coming from a Hasbrobemployee, that's pretty damning.

    He has just as good a chance as you do to get the exclusive
    There are people out there who by multiples of every transformer so they can display all the molds. If he want to but 10 it's with in his rights
