    I got ROTF Onslaught in the mail today and assembled Bruticus using him, and I like the look of him quite a bit.

    Up until now, I had been using Energon Barricade to serve as Bruticus' torso, and I'm also very fond of that look.

    Now I can't decide which I prefer. Which do you think is the better one?

    Put me in the ROTF Onslaught camp, that grey fits the aestetics much better.

    The ROTF set has superior color cohesion. G1 Bruticus accuracy be damned!

    The FP sets were made to match the ROTF figures

    I thought about going for the "G1" look myself, but really do prefer the overall look of the ROTF bots. Just my two cents.

    Let's be real here, they both look pretty darn good! That said, the "add-on" kit was made for the ROTF and may "blend" better. BUT, I believe the colors of both Energon and ROTF Barricade/Onslaught go very well with the add-on.

    Let's face it.....if you are a purist, you will only want the ROTF Bruticus to use with your Explorer and Munitioner. But if you are true TF fan and not necessarily a purist you will be perfectly happy with any other combination of them.

    I really like the blue of the Energon Barricade, but Onslaught's darker colors are growing on me quite a bit. The more I look at the two pics, the more I think Onslaught is edging Barricade out of the picture.

    Now I'm tempted to try to get another Mutioner and Explorer to assemble a second Bruticus using Barricade and ROTF Swindle and Blast Off.

    I prefer the more G1 colors of the Energon set (yes, that means the helicopter and tank as well).

    The ROTF set is a big block of dull and drab.

    I prefer the colour scheme of Bruticus with ROTF onslaught. It looks nicer and complement the other limbs better.

    Woah, another "Which Bruticus to use with FP's Munitioners" thread? :D 

    It has to be Energon Bruticus for me.

    Before I got a Bruticus or the FP figures, I always thought I would get the Energon set as the colours on Barricade ar much more G1. The I got the Universe Bruticus and have seen pics of the combined version with Barricade...and I gotta say I don't like the blue in amongst the rest of the colours. Don't know why, just personal aesthetic perference I suppose. Anyhoo, Universe/ROTF for me.

    No.... I was only asking about the torso - Barricade or Onslaught. ;) 

    For the limbs, it's ROTF Vortex and Brawl. No others interest me.

    I use ROTF Onslaught. I think it matches with the Fansproject set more.
