    Almost everywhere, people only call the combined Combaticons Bruticus, always leaving out Maximus. So is Maximus officially dead in general? Or only to the fandom? Even the SDCC exclusive only says Bruticus.

    Um.

    You're aware that the FOC figures are an homage to G1 Bruticus, right? Who was also just called Bruticus? Tacking "Maximus" onto the end of combiner robots was just an Energon thing.

    Shit.

    I just noticed 'Maximus' was only on the Energon combiner.

    My bad.

    Although, nexus maximus became nexus prime, does anyone use maximus anymore besides fortress maximus?

    For the FOC combiner, Hasbro used a more subtle solution:
