    So, I have come up with a proposition for anyone who purchased a ROTF bruticus set in preparation for the upcoming release of the fansproject upgrade release. Basically, to complete the bruticus upgrade, you need barricade, the largest transformer, one of either kickback or blight(the tanks), and one of either blackout or stormcloud(the choppers). So, in the end, you are left with a chopper and a tank. The choppers and tanks are the exact same mold and thus interchangeable. If you were interested, I would be willing to buy those 2 off of you for a fraction of whatever you paid to get the whole set in the first place. I will just find the chest piece on my own. Let me know if anyone is interested in selling me those 2 transformers!

    thanks for lookin!

    Hi, I don't mean to hijack your thread, but you make a good point and I think this post would help others looking for parts that bruticus sets will have in excess of. When I get my Bruticus set (just waiting for my package) I'll be putting my 2 extra guys for sale. If anyone is interested, please PM me. And sarakawa, if you still need em, lemme know!

    I've got a set coming but I'll throw my hat into the ring for dealing away two limbs.

    You can get barricade for about $17 on ebay. I know that's not the best, but it's the easiest place to find him. Sure beats shelling out all that money for a whole Bruticus set.

    Never thought of this. Great idea! FYI you can get the Universe 1.0 repackage of Energon Barricade (center/chest piece) at most Dollar Generals for $10.

    Dollar General or Family Dollar have had them for $10 since Christmas. Ross got them in last month for only $7 but they didn't last long. Doesn't hurt to check though.

    I meant to type Family Dollar. FYI, I picked up 2 from my local Family Dollar. I have one for sale to whoever needs it. I am only asking for the actual paid price plus shipping for it. Just trying to help someone out. The other I got for myself. I think I will preorder another upgrade set and have two upgraded Bruticuses.

    This is a great idea everybody. This thread should get re-started over in the Toy discussion board just so that others that hadn't thought of this might get a chance to have a completed Bruticus when the upgrade kit comes out.

    I know I paid $56 plus $5 shipping for my ROTF Set and I thought that was cheap for what others were charging/paying. Cheapest someone was selling them on Junkion was $85.

    Any of you guys wanna post this? You all deserve the credit.

    Great cooperation between everybody too, this is how it's supposed to work TF fans helping each other.

    Kuddos to everybody!

    And if I run across any of the re-issues at my local Ross or Family Dollar I will be sure to pick them up for my fellow board members.

    not too be a hater but what are the chances these figures are going to match up to the FP's kit colors. I mean shoot I can put a classics prime in my city commander kit but that doesn't make it right - now does it?:rolleyes:

    Well the color of the Energon Barricade is lighter but it might not look too bad, but if someone can post a pic of Barricade with the Bruticus Maximus limbs that would probably give us a good idea of what it'd look like.

    Personally I don't think putting a Prime in a CC kit is wrong or right. The one time I tried it out I really couldn't tell the difference.

    From what I've been told, there will be 2 releases of this Fansproject. Sort of like there are 2 releases with their Superion upgrade. So, I don't think matching is much of a concern.

    And regardless...just look at the colors of the original Bruticus. Yellows. Several different greens. Purples. Light Grays. Dark Grays. Blacks. Reds.

    And the last point is....it's better to have something, than nothing. This is still a great alternative to anyone who cannot lay down the outrageous prices of the scalpers are asking for their Bruticus kits.

    My three cents.

    Prime actually goes pretty well with the Magnus set.

    Some people actually prefer Barricade with the ROTF limbs instead of the grey onslaught.

    We'll have to wait until we see the colored versions before we know for sure.

    I may be joining this, but need to wait for the set to determine which limbs are expendable (based upon color). I'll keep this thread in mind.

    This is a great idea. I wish i saw it before i paid $70 for it. Anyway, I have energon Barricade(MISB) + 1 of the ROTF tanks + 1 of the ROTF choppers for $30 plus actual shipping. Or if you are in the SF bayarea we can meet up.

    Just tell me what color tank and chopper you want.
