    I couldn't pay attention to the review because all I could focus on were the ants crawling all over his left hand.

    Start at 10:20 wish and watch his left hand.

    I kept wiping my screen thinking they were on my monitor. Nope. Unless I'm seeing things. I can't totally rule that out. :eek:

    LOL

    Bens going feral after being in that shed, growing a giant beard, collecting his pee in jars and becoming one with the ants.

    Yep it's just not where the money is.

    As has been mentioned before, an official TT combiner would probably be priced insanely vs current 3P pricing anyway, so perhaps we can use that to convince ourselves that it's all for the best :p

    Added these to my Rub deals if anyone is interested. I'm not sure if these are sexy enough to knock out my OS jb bruticus but for robot mode, this set seems to check the boxes....

    Did you watch Ben's review of UT Brawl? He compared it with Jinbao Brawl... personally, the difference was night and day, I think UT looks way better, but YMMV.

    I'm supposed to be working so I haven't watched. Was it in plastic quality or aesthetics? Because I agree he does look better. I love my Jinbao but you'd never mistake it for an MP(ish) bot.

    Idk what the hell they are, but they aren't ants. ants don't move like that. They are literally feeding on his hand. and they aren't gnats either, I'm not seeing any wings. they look like baby earwigs. or maybe rove beetles.

    Well... not that I'm flip-flopping but I will say that TT's individual combiner pieces would probably be roughly $100 a piece (depending on how much extra stuff they include with it), which is more than on par with 3P.

    I hate this thread and i hate Ben too. Damn, now i want the Tank too!!! Colors are damn so awesome, and on both.

    Thing is, the XTB Stunticons are 40$/ea, and these are like 85$ each... It is making me hesitate...

    Anyways, say i can find it on ebay at 85$ - 15$ flash sale, at 70$ it feel better a bit, but sure would like to bring it down to 60$ shipped... Yeah, probably waiting will save me lots, but, i am somewhat eager too for at least the Swindle, so might not be able to control myself.

    I feel the same way. These guys look great, particularly Swindle who is my favorite Combaticon. My only issue other than price is that they seem a bit short compared to other MPs. Where do these guys fit on the Sunbow chart?

    It's hard to judge plastic quality fairly from a video, but I'd say both. Plastic looks better. But the aesthetics are like comparing MP-10 and Combiner Wars Optimus. No contest, at least to my tastes.

    Man, I'm a little disappointed that Unique Toys didn't do anything with the feet. I really liked Ordin's feet that turned into missile launching pods that Blot could wear.
    Figure looks good, though. Still going with this one over Zeta Toys, size be darned.

    The feet are huge! At least they could have added some ratchets, there is a lot of dead space inside those feet!

    They don't , sunbow left out most of the season 2 combiners and a majority of the season 3 cast so we have to go but a cartoon that showed one scene where Bruticus was the 6th combaticon

    Guess I'll have to find all their appearances on the show to compare. I would probably display them primarily in the individual robot modes rather than combined, so it's probably a bigger deal for me. Love your reviews by the way.
