    Damn, nice. For me, it comes to 218$ shipped from RobotKingdom to Canada... :( 

    Patience isnt my strong suit, but got to make it and be hopeful i will get a similar price from Ebay, eventually... or better.

    ok thanks. They are 160$ before shipping from my understanding. How does one determine the shipping cost?

    For in stock items, if you add them to your cart and act like you're going to check out, you'll get to a point where you can specify shipping with or w/o the original packaging, and then it will give you an estimate. You can then back out of the purchase.

    For pre-order items, I don't know that there is a way to estimate the costs, at least that I've been able to find. That's probably because the dimensions aren't yet known. You could get an approximation by maybe adding a roughly equivalent number of IF figures to your cart. But I would guess that shipping would add anywhere from $10 - $20.

    IMO, this is, centimeter for centimeter, the all-round best looking Bruticus that has yet been made, in any scale.

    I went to check out with their Iron Factory Dinobot set. It's 5 bots, so I figure it's comparable in weight and a good enough approximation of shipping for me.

    Their shipping seems weight-based, so the combiner parts may add another buck or two.
    I'm with you. Brawl & Vortex are my favorites of the set, but all of them look fantastic.

    I find his back cannons to be the most satisfying of any set I've seen... so chunky...

    Great idea. For me in California that adds $21, so total of around 180 usd, not bad but still similar to what I expect to see from eBay.

    Wow, I normally don't care too much about combined mode, but War Giant is very articulated. I am impressed by the individually articulated fingers. I appreciate what DX9 was trying to do with Hulkie; incorporating almost all of his combiner pieces into the individual bots, but damn . . . War Giant just blows Hulkie away. I am not going to throw my Hulkie away, but if IF wants to tackle Devastator they could probably convince me to double dip.

    I want to see what Iron Factory could do with the rest of the combiners. Especially if they can incorporate some of the new combiner wars characters like Rook or Powerglide. Hell, they gave us the Cybertronian forms of the Dinobots let's see Volcanicus with a Dinobot Slash.

    For me, it's all up to how good the combiner joints are. Hulkie's are pretty weak.

    Cannot wait. My most anticipated set of figures in.. ever? Look at those poses they have Bruticus in.

    'Does he have knees?'

    Yes, mate. Knees for fucking days.

    Hope I can still afford to get this set soon. Also yay I was 100% right about the knee articulation.
