    Just a simple question that popped into my head while I am anxiously waiting for my set. What are you guys doing with the extra Bruticus Maximus parts (ie. head) and figures? Storage? Selling? Separate display? Etc?

    The 2 left over figures are standing displayed with my Bruticus. As for the remaining parts...there stored away in a zip lock bag with the rest of Tformer parts I have.

    I'm surprised so few are selling them on, would certainly help out alot of those collectors stuck finding Bruticus Maximus.

    I saw someone on here rename the "Swindle" helicopter, Sandstorm. So, I'm changing the Decepticon symbols to Autobot ones, and putting him with them.

    I have an extra Energon Barricade I got from a store. Maybe I'll make another Combiner using Ceossfire A, B and the left over limbs. I'll keep the original head as well.

    They are shoved into a corner somewhere. I intend to add them to the "pile off dead bots" that will be part of the battle field display. I might have to mod them a bit so they can stay under foot without knocking over the figures that are still alive.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    I was thinking I may use them in some sort of custom I haven't thought of yet. Maybe some good parts for articulated something G1 like KO insecticons.

    Sold them as I will never have used them again because of the Greatness of FPs Blast-Off and Swindle.

    The head is going into storage, while helicopter Swindle is joining Reverb, Gunbarrel, E-Blight and an extra E-Barricade for a new combiner. Not sure what I'll do with tank Blast Off.

    You know, I actually really like the interplay of purple and orange on tank Blast Off, so I think I'll be keeping him on display, maybe as a drone/duplicate for "Explorer", kinda like the backstory they had for the duplicate Smokescreens in the Binaltech line. I don't know about Heli-Swindle, though.

    One thing people were griping about initally with the Bruticus Crossfire sets was that the new replacement figures would not have raised faction logos and energon crystals. I'm *MAYBE* considering transplanting them from the replaced figures to the new ones, but I'm not sure where they would fit on Munitioner and Explorer. Any ideas?
