    Lol

    Just means Onslaught is too small imo as they had to put the connector lower down the body. Zeta Bruticus doesn't have anywhere near as long 'shoulder pads' as the connection is higher up the arm and his arms look proportionally sound. Of course pants would have solved all proportion issues but that ship sailed a long time ago.

    Individual robot/alts look damn good though on these.

    Mine did and I’m guessing more will. My combined knee ratchet broke and weakly designed for such a tight joint

    If I can get these for about £50 each I'll probably cave and add them to the other 3 members that I have.

    Wasn't planning to but they look good

    The huge shoulders don't bother me, because it's a robot, not a human being. Robots can have any shape, and I think they look cool. :cool:

    And with just a few pics and one video I am completely back on board after panicking when reading about so many Kalecgos issues (I've held off on picking him up until seeing how things play out; hopefully UT will keep good faith address the issues). I may end up owning both the UT and Zeta sets in the long run (much to my surprise, I felt a great need to play with Zeta's Swindle after watching the 刘哥模玩 YouTube video on it last week; I found Zeta's version to be hideous before then, but I'll be damned if that stupid hummer hasn't won me over a bit), but ultimately the UT set checks the greater number of my personal requirement boxes.

    All that being said, Vortex and Blast Off look excellent! Archimonde and Gahz'ranka look fierce on their shelf, with a distinct "do not F**K with us" vibe that pleases me greatly. Based on these new pics, the band is going to be even more intimidating upon the new recruits arrival, which is exactly how they should read in individual bot mode(s).

    Now, I just wonder what World of Warcraft monikers they will claim? Any guesses out there? :2c:

    The long shoulders don’t bother me. His G1 toy and some of the G1 toon showed those shoulders just like that.

    I get it that some don’t like the look and that’s all okay with me. But this is G1 Bruticis to me.

    I don't personally care about cartoon accuracy. I care about good-looking bots, and I think having an assortment of colours on Blast Off does him zero favours. Also, UT didn't get the colouration right anyway - the Arguably, the colours are closer to each other in the cartoon but I honestly just think it's too much either way.

    Regardless, I like them (though that tail fin on Blast Off looks extremely weeny), but I'm still waiting to see some news on Onslaught getting a do-over before I decide to commit to two sets of these. I hope the Ocular Max one turns out okay too.

    I'm guessing if you try to pose him, the knees or ratchets will eventually give in?

    The only way the knees will give in is by the breakage of the ratchets... Lets pray for a fix for Kalecgos!

    That seems to be the case. I know some people are saying they haven't had issues, but there are also plenty of people reporting hips and knees breaking, so I'd be scared to touch it, personally.

    Illidan and Arthas? Odd thing is they don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason for name choosing. Ironically kalecgos is a good guy yet has all the problems. Gahzranka is also a randomly minor dungeon (not even raid) boss. So who knows, maybe theyll name one Hogger!

    Pretty much what happened to mine. Took it apart and the ratchet is extremely weak with only a sliver of plastic on a single side of the ratchet being stressed on a super tight joint. If it were just 2-3 times thicker it might work but it turned to mush after a handful of transformations in combined.

    It's good one of the options floats your boat.

    That being said it'll hinder dynamic outward outward posing if that's your jam, I'm gonna guess it isn't though.

    Not sure it's "magnificent" how he continues to look like a kid suffocating in adult-sized armor with barely his eyebrows poking out above the chest plate, just like in the test shots, but these were only going to be Combaticons for me and not Bruticus.

    Agreed. This really would have been magnificent with fake parts. Torso would have been bigger, combiner thighs and hips would have been grey/white and proportions would have been perfect. So much so I doubt many would have gone Zeta. It truly would have been the cartoon version ppl are clamouring for.
