    I've been wondering as to what the Takara version of FOC Bruticus colour scheme maybe? What do you think?

    Along with random bits of shiny paint, and priced up the Wazoo because they figure they can get away with it.

    Not that i'm ruling out purchasing it........ yet. and there probably will be one.

    I'm wondering if it will just be the SDCC version.

    Arms Micron is just for Prime.

    But i wouldn't put a bunch of stickers past them.

    I'd assume one of three options:

    * Game-accurate color scheme.

    * G1 cartoon colors (applied to fundamentally non-G1-cartoon-accurate toys)

    * Near-identical to one of the established Hasbro toy schemes, with shiny metallic paint added in ways that don't quite fit. (or the newer alternative, paint apps replaced with a sticker sheet.)

    I'd imagine pretty much the same as SDCC, but with Vortex being G1 colored.

    Yeah, and I'd buy it. Their DOTM Vortex is AMAZING.

    Hopefully it's game accurate so I don't have to go through the hassle of getting an exclusive. Vortex with G1 colors? Even more want.

    If the issue is pricing, i doubt a Takara version will end up much cheaper.

    It will definitely be either in G1 or game colours but metallic colors. Knowing how Takara tends to be er, "accurate", I say it will be game colours! :D

    Being based in UK, custom charges for higher value items are always a threat for direct imports, so I prefer to go through Kapow or other UK sites wherever possible where I know upfront what costs I'm facing.

    Good example is TFCC Overrun which came close to £70 after shipping and Customs & handling costs...

    The reason I don't think it'll be game colors, but instead be G1 is because the original WfC Figures came out as the G1 characters... did WfC even come out in Japan?

    Well, the Takara release of the WFC toys were as G1 characters, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did the same for FoC.
