    FOC Bruticus is Hasbro's first real 5-bot combiner i.e. individual unique members since G1 times (I think). If it sells well we may be in store for some more large scale combiners like this.

    Question I'd like to put out there is would you like to see some minor tinkering on these new combaticons to bring up some new combiners quickly. Here's my thinking on options:

    Protectobots
    Onslaught - Repaint with new weapon, new combiner head into Hotspot
    Swindle - Repaint and new head into First Aid
    Vortex - Repaint and new head into Blades
    Option 1a - Retool Brawl & Blastoff into brand new protectobot members
    Option 1b - New additions for Streetwise and Groove

    I think it's feasible and could be good for collectors/fans and far less risky for Hasbro.

    Thoughts?

    oh dear sweet mother of jesus that would be amazing!

    i was alslo thinking of modding Swindle to look game accurate i.e. making the front of his alt mode become the foot. and maybe pick up an extra Vortex and paint him G1 colors

    It might just be me, but I think Swindle would make for a great Crosshairs.

    I wouldn't be at all against some Micromaster or obscure characters reusing the molds. A Spinster from Vortex and Quake from Brawl would be pretty boss in my opinion.

    I like Vangelus's idea.

    Swindle > Chromedome
    Brawl > Hardhead
    Blast off > Brainstorm
    Vortex > Highbrow
    Cerebros > Onslaught

    Combined mode, Fortress Maximus.

    I honestly think that if you retooled the combiner into anything, it would need a new chest. Deluxe Onslaught is waaaay too small.

    I think kids wouldn't like a motorcycle transformer the same size as a tank these days. Besides, we've had tanks on rescue squads before—the PCC Protectobots have an APC and a tank, after all.

    You underestimate kids. I don't think they care enough about scale, so a motorcycle being as big as a tank wouldn't be so off-putting to them. I mean, we certainly didn't give a shit. It probably isn't until we become man-children that we start becoming anal and fussy over the aforementioned.

    Ruination. They should have made the mass-release Ruination and the exclusive G1 instead of those god awful Energon colors.

    I fully support this.

    Honestly, I'm just going to pretend the mass release version IS Ruination, and Let the actual Energon Bruticus be G1 Bruticus.

    It's urban camo, not arctic. Add me to that list, as well as desert.

    Damn it, I mentioned this VERY thing almost immediately upon seeing the fig. Sign me up



    Also, I'd like to suggest the following:






    Battle Gaia

    well,here's something that might sound like a unique twist to the "Urban camo" suggestion

    Onslaught: Blastcharge (Colors based on a mix of Cybertron and Universe 1.0 Blastcharge)
    Vortex: Cyclonus (based on armada cyclonus,colors based on energon cyclonus,new head)
    Swindle: Hardtop (based on cybertron hardtop,using the movie's colors with some urban camo,sniper rifle replaces default weapon)
    Blastoff: Backblast (Colors based on Movie Skyblast,new head based on a mix of armada and energon incarnations.)
    Brawl: Crumplezone (Black and grey with added urban camo *duh* based on the armada minicon)

    Combined Gesalt: Umbral
