    Do you intend to sell or trade your ROTF Bruticus Maximus with the Fansproject Explorer & Munitioner Upgrade Set for the upcoming Generations FOC Bruticus?

    I'm keeping both. I love the fact that the colors on FOC Bruticus are not G1. Variety is good.

    Just got ROTF Bruticus with the FP add-on. It is sweet! Gonna buy FOC though in hope FP comes through and makes an additional add-on for it also.

    The recent reveal of FOC Bruticus doesn't make my FP/ROTF Bruticus obsolete in any way since they're working from two distinct aesthetics. One is a Cybertronian form of the character, whereas the other is a nod to the original. I think they could complement each other rather nicely, especially in a combiner display. I plan on getting the FOC set.

    I'll take a look at FoC Brut, and more than likely will pick one up (even though I am not impressed by the combined mode).

    But there is no way my ROTF FP Brut is going ANYWHERE!

    There is no way I would sell FP Bruticus. There is no comparison between the two figures in my book.

    The only thing that scares me with FP Bruticus is if another 3rd Party company came out and did a Brut from scratch. In reality all they would need to make is Onslaught/Vortex and Brawl. The rest of him is perfect the way he is.

    When are we going to stop with the one-sided polls that should be obvious to the OP?

    FoC Bruticus is the only one I can afford, lol, so it's not really an option for me (and why I didn't vote).

    But...I am not sure I will grab the crazy neon set or wait for a SE that has better colors.

    No way in hell. I'm still getting FoC Bruticus, but he does in no way compare to FP Bruticus.

    Also it's a pretty unfair comparison. Colossus is an excellent product that takes full advantage of every thing a 3rd company can get away with that restricts Hasbro (for safety reasons and target pricepoint among others). It's got a lot of "extra" parts that Hasbro tries to avoid, for quite a bigger price too. FoC Bruty is a self-contained, 5-deluxe combiner. Both are cool in their own way to me, with FP Bruticus being a lot more of a collector's premium item, and FoC just a cool (hopefully) accesible toy.

    Two different Brutici for two different series.

    The only way I would even consider parting with FP Bruticus is if somehow, somewhere, a company put out a better Bruticus for Classics. I don't see it happening any time soon.

    I voted for both because there really isn't a comparison IMO. I'm not going to sell my FP add ons because Hasbro is making a completely different Bruticus in a different aesthetic. It's also a little premature to say which one is a better figure when no one has had FOC Bruticus in hand ...

    FP Bruticus in a landslide... one of the baddest ass toys ever. I'll probably get the FoC one, but to me it's a total mess in comparison... especially if the color scheme ends up deviating from the original pics, as I am suspecting it will.

    Not a chance of me selling my Fansproject set unless

    a) The price is right
    b) the FOC turns out nicer than pictures suggest.

    Just getting FoC, too cheap to get Munitioner and Explorer. I would like Munitioner, though, if only because Swindle is one of my favorite TFs and the FoC version just really doesn't cut it.

    But really, I think that FoC will deliver more bang for your buck. FP is better, FoC is a better value.

    Though I desperately hope they're not in the Energon colors. Brawl looks so much worse, so does Blast Off, and those are the two molds I'm looking forward to the most.

    ... seriously, FoC Blast Off looks absolutely gorgeous.
