    Looks like he's been reposed so that he's standing more upright.

    his arms don't look very posable, and he looks like he cannot take any dynamic pose.

    Yes, yes it does, but PCC were not "predaking sized" that this is going for, I am HOPING Hasbro made those combiner ports STRONGER so it can actually lift his arm with the gun. I am concerned about that. I think they look better as combaticons instead of Bruticus atm.

    Energon. Nothing like G2.

    Hrm. The arms still look really long...

    To be fair, they did look like they reached past his knees in the VGA trailer.

    'Tis plenty like G2. It's just that Onslaught has Vortex's colors, Vortex has Swindle's, and Swindle has Onslaught's. Just need a bit of white in there for Blast-Off.

    That's a joke, right?

    Onslaught's colors are nothing like Vortex's. At all. They're a brighter version of G1 Onslaught's colors... just like Energon Barricade.

    Similarly, Swindle's colors are a brighter version of G1 Swindle's... which is precisely what Energon Blight used. Same with Brawl, who's a brighter version of his own palette... which can be used to describe Energon Kickback.

    Blast Off's color scheme is nothing like any part of G2 Bruticus'. Similarly, Blast Off's G2 color scheme doesn't show up anywhere.

    The only thing that miiiiiiiiiiight be considered tying the two together is the fact that Vortex's colors match G2 Swindle. Which would have a lot more credence if... you know... it were Swindle, and not Vortex. But they also match Energon Stormcloud pretty well, too. The whole "it's a reference to the G2 Combaticons! With the colors swapped! Except for the characters with completely different color schemes! And the color schemes from G2 that aren't represented at all!" just seems like a stretch and a half.

    I really hope that's not the final colors... The pics of Brawl and Swindle from that magazine were great... now it's... neon.

    My only dislike is the somewhat goofy arms. The colors probably appear a bit brighter because of all the lights and such. Regardless, I still like the color scheme.

    Really want to see what Swindle and Brawl look like as arms and Vortex and Blast Off as feet.

    -ZacWilliam, thinks it amazing each limb deluxe can do both.

    Hasbro designer who made Bruticus said it in an interview AND we got very clear pictures yesterday of the Bruticus fists visible on the back of both Swindle and Brawl.


    -ZacWilliam, doesn't care much about canonical positioning, I'll find which two make the best arms and which two the best legs and then stick to it...
