    Hi All,
    This set has been talked about in the KO thread but doesn't appear to have one of its own.
    Jinbao, the guys that gave us the awesome OS Feral Rex and Nero Rex, are tackling the Warbotron Bruticus next. Theres a deposit PO up on Tf-Direct with no mention of end price. Speculation is that is going to be around 100

    DEPOSIT For JinBao Oversized Bruticus

    Sorry in advance if this is a repeat thread. Looks like its worth looking into as onslaught will be the same size as MP10.

    If the combined mode is only 17" tall, it's not a whole lot taller than the non-OS version. If it was TW Devy sized (~22-24") I'd be interested.

    What's the regular height of Warbotron Bruiticus? It must be pretty close to 17" already.

    Warb bruticus stands 14.5" to the top of his head so not too much of a difference. Tw devastator is just about 20"

    tfdirect says the oversize is 17" tall in combined mode. I also read somewhere that the figure(s) are 120% sized.

    hardly seems worth it only to size them up by that much; but I suppose any bigger would compromise basic engineering. Original warbo is solid but a bit top heavy

    That aside, what interests me is their construction. The warbo figures are more complex from an engineering
    standpoint than the Rex animals. What compromises will be done when they Ko them?

    I wouldn't say that myself. Brawl, Vortex and Blast Off are relatively straightforward, Brawl especially with Vortex literally half partsforming.

    Kinda regret selling my custom Bruticus so this is very tempting to recreate it. Need to see TW first though.

    Just curious what this is based on. Anyone have some insight? Only asking because the regular sized KO costs more than $100, and that is regular sized.

    Its on the Show.Z Facebook page. Early Bird is 95$ USD for the set. Also the Jin Bao OS Feral Rex was around 129 from places like Sirtoys.

    The price makes it very tempting, but I'm already happy with the original. I'm not sure an extra 2.5 inches is worth it.

    If this is the same quality as the rex OS then it'll be a cheap ass pos.
    No thanks.

    Knowing that a proper TW version is coming, that is $100 that should go to the ultimate Bruticus.

    wow, noticed one modification in that Fierce Attack's big guns can now come out and swing forward on a hinge. On a side note it is great to see finally how to combine the feet/ guns, main gun into the launch pad for blastoff. I knew they fit together somehow but scoured the internet to find out how with no luck

    I've seen people do it in Review videos - try Emgo316's warbotron videos.

    ***

    Anyway knowing that the new one is 20% bigger I thought I'd make a mock up to show some scale comparison. (not my images) The Fansproject one on the right and normal Warbotron one in the middle and then the same one blown up by 20% on the far left.

    I have both OS Feral and Nero Rex and cheap ass pos aren't words I'd use to describe them. Considering the price and what you get, they were pretty damn good.
