    I plan on just plugging the two black pieces together to make a simple yet larger single gun. Everything else looks ridonkulous (sic) IMHO.

    I wonder how they stack up versus RotF Scouts, though.

    Energon Basics were probably the heaviest that size class has ever been, so the results are skewed just a little bit.

    I mean, it's no doubt that modern TFs are still lighter. But the size reductions had been happening gradually even before then.

    Could it be that these figures are lighter due to the fact Hasbro was trying to keep the weight down for the combination gimmick?

    This sounds reasonable, but the other FoC figures are also pretty lightweight.

    To be fair, deluxe Vortex was a tiny bit heavier than his Energon Blackout counterpart. Just a tiny bit... It was like the reverse of the tank limbs.

    I don't mind with the missing paint applications but Onslaughts head being molded in purple really kills this set for me.

    Thanks for the review TC. It has made me realize I don't really like the bruticus figure so i cancelled my order on bbts and used to buy FE Starscream and preordered FOC ultra magnus and starscream

    They come from the same mold, but why the G2 version look like a "toy" so much?

    I have one of these on the way, mostly for the colours on Vortex, he looks better with blue than yellow to me and the retail colours just look a bit gash.

    I'll probably get another Swindle, Onslaught and Tomy Blast Off but I am looking forward to having this guy in hand.

    He's the cheapest and easiest to find, which means he'll be the one I pick up.

    I think I'm going to get out the detail paints for this set.

    Can someone post pics of them in their robot modes alongside FoC Jazz, Shockwave and Optimus Prime?

    I don't have a picture, but they go up to the top of the foot limb (same height as Brawl in footmode).

    I'll be getting a retail onslaught to swap heads with for this set. The purple head just looks awful.

    Probably pick up a retail Brawl too, and paint his head purple to swap onto this one, since his original G2 Head was purple, and he could use some color breakup.

    If you don't mind my asking, why get another Brawl in order to just paint his head? Why not just paint the thing?
