im on the fence!!! help!!7
Ones almost $300 the other goes for $100, depends how much you want to shell out.
Two totally different price ranges.
Go for brute.
I am selling my SDCC Brut for 225 shipped.
hegemon, sdcc brute is just expensive, not worth it imo, at retail, sure, ebay markup, nope
SDCC Bruticus for sure. Hegemon I'm sure will be around for a looooooooong time, and SDCC Bruticus is pretty much as cheap as it will ever be, go for it....can't WAIT to get mine in!
Hegemon, DEFINITELY Hegemon. FoC Bruticus is a pretty nice toy, but 100 for it is NOT worth it. It isn't anywhere near 100 dollar quality, unlike Hegemon.
Their are a few more 3rd party Megatron's being released. that look bigger & more G-1 than hedgemon
If you've got pay over $200 for the SDCC Bruticus on the secondary market. I'd suggest you wait for the Takara FOC Bruticus version. Takara might recolor this toy in more closer 1985 Bruticus colors.
hegemon's pretty much sold out everywhere
I'd wait for the new MP Megatron and get Bruticus instead.
Yeah, I think only AcesToyStore and Chimungmung (1 left) have it. RK only has C8 or boxes with cracked windows left. After that, the next option is ebay? Not sure if production would continue into 2013?
Right now the SDCC Bruticus is hot because its the only one out for sale. Once the regular Bruticus, G2 Bruticus, and eventual Takara toon accurate versions are out, demand will probably be pretty much saturated for that mold.
^ this. SDCC Bruticus will retain more value if unopened in the long run compared to Hegemon.
HEGEMON!!! He's one of the best in my collection along with MP Grimlock and a few others. Trust me...Hegemon is the right choice between the two.
I say go for Hegemon & just wait for retail Bruticus or the other repaints. After looking at FOC one again, I just don't like the colors on it (I won't ever play the game so I have no attachment to the colors in it). Don't like the colors of Blast-Off & Vortex & Swindle looks off too.
i'm going with the g2 bruticus but that's just me.
I vote Hegemon...but then I don't have Bruticus to compare to. I disagree with the guy saying Brute will appreciate in value moreso since Hegemon is a waaaay limited release by a way smaller company. Compare Classics Devastator to say.... Warbot Defender. Which is worth more? And before anyone says that it's because of the 3rd party Devs... that does pay a part in it.
Get both by going the cheap way get hegemon and the g2 bruticus.
I'd go for Hegemon. One solid figure over five mediocre ones for double the price.
Was there an announcement for this?
Hegemon. You can get a Bruticus in different colors for like 200 dollars less when they hit retail. Hegemon however, won't ever be sold in stores.
