    Was just about to post this.

    Looks to me like Onslaught compromises the most. I want to see better pics of him though.

    They definitely captured his general look, and while he's far from perfect (hopefully the guns can be placed further back to fill out the back of the alt mode), it's obvious that sacrifices have to be made for a combiner. All three figures we've seen so far have been above-average, so that's all I can ask.

    That vehicle mode is pretty hilarious, unless that gun moves back to fill it out or something. The robot mode, while not accurate, looks pretty nice in it's own right, especially for a combiner.

    EDIT: Holy crap! This means Bruticus can have little arms coming out of his chest! Yay!

    He definitely takes a hit in accuracy for the sake of combination, but he still looks like a cool toy in his own right.

    This is it, the turning point, this is where opinion changes from it being Gods gift to man to an embarrassing pile of crap that could have been done better by a 3rd party...

    Personally I'm not surprised that Onslaught looks a little messy, his vehicle mode was quite arbitrary to begin with and he has to do rather a lot.

    Yeah being the torso means he's got the short end of the stick. That vehicle mode looks puny and the bot mode is weaker. That Torso looks really good though. I imagined it would be like that though. I will await a clear view of everything together before passing full judgement. He could be mistransformed or in an awkward position too.

    I wonder if the shoulders are mistransformed at all in botmode.... those shoulder pieces on the CGI model appear to rotate 90 degrees.

    All the same, it IS definitely Onslaught, and I'm gonna assume the cannons mount on his back.

    Either way, I think it's safe to say we'll see these guys at ToyFair.

    Robot is cool. Vehicle could use more mass in the back. But, hey, he could be mistransformed for all we know.

    So, what are the guesses about his size class now?

    EDIT: Well, the article again insists Deluxe. I'm curious to see how that pans out.

    Eh, I think he looks fine.

    I'll judge them when I see Bruticus in full. Not praising or condemning them until that.

    This continues to look promising. Yes Onslaught is not perfect but he still looks good. Kind of sucks the combination tabs just stick out from his wheels in alt mode, but it's not something that ruins the figure or anything.

    I continue to look forward to more pics.

    If anything, the flatbed semi look he has going on there kinda reminds me of the G1 missile truck. :lol

    A little skinny compared to the CG, but that's sort of typical for WfC/FoC figures.

    What? Five unique, combining figures?

    Vehicle mode looks like it's got a missing rear half. :/

    Granted, the toy sacrifices a bit for the combining feature, but let's face it, the positives of the full body Bruticus part highly outweigh the cons of the single Onslaught toy.

    Still rated godly in my book.

    Hmmm, looking at this, the only thing that really concerns me is the shoulder connections. I'm sorta concerned that they'll look too thin.
