    I just got Energon Barricade and I am matching him up with the ROTF set for FP Bruticus. I actually think this looks really good.

    I am going to use this instead of using Onslaught. I think it looks good like this next to the other combiners.

    So I just wanted to see what you guys are using and how are you matching your limbs for this figure. I was going to do a Poll but I realized that would be too limiting.

    I stick with the RotF set. Don't have to go out of my way to pic up extra figures, plus the Crossfire set is colour-matched to it. If you go for Energon Barricade, Onslaught's vehicle mode no longer matches up properly.

    And generally, the saturated colours of the other releases clash with the military drab palette, IMO.

    I use Barricade because I already owned him and wasnt gonna pay the prices for the ROTF set. I think he looks just fine, but I honestly think the ROTF one looks much sharper. Barricade is arguably more G1, but Onslaught is more military drab, which fits the theme of the add-on.

    I also have Energon Blackout instead of Vortex for the arm, and Blight instead of Brawl for the leg. Blackout was also a case of "already owned it." Blight I had to pick up seperately, but I went for him over the other colors because I liked his name.

    Here is the thing for me. If I was going to have Bruticus by himself I think I would stick with ROTF only.

    However, on my shelf he is with Superion and Crazy Devy Devastator. I think he looks good with Barricade as it throws up a little more color and make him more G1 accurate as well. So next to them, I think he needs the Bruticus torso.

    I went out of my way to pick up Energon Barricade, I like the look better, but I'm just silly that way.

    The energon Barricade looks so much more like onslaught and Onslaught is coloured like Movie Barricade :lol 

    I only own the movie version unfortunately but if i could find a barricade for a decent price then yes, Onslaught would not be part of my combiner.

    I was able to pick up Barricade for $10, so I jumped on it.

    By the way, anyone know if there is any custom proper tank torrent for Brawl? I hate his torrent.

    target unreleased limbs (reverb & gunbarrell)

    for something a little different...i think the target unreleased limbs reverb & gunbarrell gives it a different and special look =)

    The metallic shade of the Superlink one might look good with it.

    My FP Bruticus is all Energon. I already had then Energon set out on display so I figured I would just use it instead of opening up the ROTF set. I think it looks pretty sharp, not that the other set doesn't too. They both have their pros and cons.

    Nobody's really jumped on that one because 1) because it's integral to his transformation, it's not easy to make a new one; 2) his turret doesn't come off easily; and 3) that's stupid, because then he stops being the tank that he's based on, and instead becomes some bizarre hodgepodge of tanks.

    heres a idea to give the tank limb brawl his main turret cannon

    http://tformers.net/i/r/DefenseScattershot/DefenseScattershotRCPG.jpg

    that copper yellowish colored barol tip on cybertron defesne scattershots fold away laser cannon in the lower right arm weapons pod

    i just went and salvaged it from the cannon painted it up in black and epoxy glued it into place directly over brawls energon star port so that in robot mode he has that main turret cannon built into his chest like g1 minibot warpath

    the cannon tip is actually small enough for it to be in properscale with the entrie turret block itslef in vehicle mode

    I sold my Energon Bruticus and got the ROTF Bruticus. Looks much better with the Crossfire set.

    Personally I think it looks much nicer with the ROTF set.
