    Very nice. I'm glad it's not a case of OMG Amazon is sold out, lets increase the price.

    I do find it funny that the G2 color scheme is also in the game... or was that only if you pre ordered through a certain site?

    Wasn't the preorder going to come much later?

    Either way, ordered one since I couldn't pay with paypal at amazon's site.

    Well the in-game G2 skin is a preorder bonus with Amazon. Probably the reason why they had first crack at getting the exclusive in the first place. (Which is actually awesome in itself)

    And is comes in a nice G2 Styled box.......technically this really is the special variant for collectors.

    Ten bucks they're gonna have enough Bruticuses to fill their site for years to come, and it's only a "shared" exclusive because Amazon wants BBTS's warehouses to be there for when they decide to stop selling. It's gonna be seacons all over again, but now with delicious G2 flavor.

    I can see them going sold out. Amazon is already sold out and this is only day one for bbts. No one wants the retail version and people who miss out on sdcc (who cant afford the after market) is going to buy this.

    To be fair, the Seacons didn't have a major media release (FoC) to back up sales of the toys with promotions and such. That and Bruticus/Combaticons are much more popular and well known characters than said Seacons (I still don't know who these mooks are nor do I particularly care to find out XD).

    That said, I preordered G2 Bruts since I'm not paying over $100 (much less $200+) for the SDCC game accurate deco, and I don't like the neon-glow colors of the retail release.

    Said mooks are the third most effective combiner team ever, second if you don't count Abominus. They hunt. Underwater. And their guns do crazy things. They also all turn into guns. How funny.

    ... I love that the G2 version isn't the most day-glo color scheme.

    But yeah, the Seacons are pretty obscure. They were in the comic 20 years ago (not even in a huge role) and in a Japanese TF series. The fact that they're arguably the best G1 Scramble-City combiner won't reach most people who are just going "who?" and moving away from the pink and teal robot.

    ^ Just put in a ridiculously high number into your cart (like 9999), press Update, and it should show the accurate number of units remaining (just be careful not to check out and pay for 500+ Bruticii in your cart, haha).

    So... what you're saying is they're the Aquaman version of TF combiners? I keed, I keed! XD

    Add one to your cart. Then go to the cart and change the quantity to something crazy like 9999.. It'll update with the max available.


    I can definitely see these selling out. Only 335 left now... People that want this and miss out have no one to blame but themselves since both places that take orders don't require upfront payment...

    It's funny that the retail set is $105 but the exclusive is $60.
