    Given how these things work, someone will OS this thing and everyone will get what they want!

    IMPC Bruticus is a little bit shorter than the others. If devestator was a quarterback, menasor was a lineman and bruticus a running back

    Combaticons are my favorite Decepticon combiner group but I only want to buy one set and have really struggled over which one to go with. They are one of the only combiner teams I might occasionally display as the individual bots so am leaning towards this set as of all the available options they seem to best capture the individual characters (judging solely from Brawl and Swindle of course). No denying that Zeta's Bruticus looks much better than this one though. It is kind of a bummer that this combined mode seems to be smaller than the new standard bearer Constructor-scale, but as things stand I'll probably just have to put up with it. Guess it depends also on if anyone ever puts out a Defensor (my favorite combiner) and how that team scales.

    These look great. How many people are waiting until the whole set is released as opposed to buying as they come out?

    I don't think I'll buy any Combaticons until all of these and Zeta's are released and we can see how the gestalt is.

    I'm sure within the next year or two we will have more G1 MP Combaticons. I'm willing to wait since both new offerings so far are underwhelming either in bot or combine mode.

    even if I pass on even if I pass on the rest of the set, I'm pretty sure that I'm going to get swindle. He's just too distinctive of a character to pass on, and this version is spot-on accurate

    They could have made Swindle and Brawl 1cm longer in alt mode.
    Make Onslaugt 1cm longer legs and 1 cm longer body.
    And Bruticus head a little bit bigger.
    And we have almost 4cm more.
    Onslaught will be 2cm bigger then mp-10.
    We can live with that.
    Maybe make the add on foot a little bit thicker, and that's over 4 cm to 5 cm.
    Everybody happy.

    But we're not happy, because UT is not making it a little bit bigger.

    Oh well, i've ordered mine today at TFS- express.
    Best conbabitcons ever!
    I think he'll look good next to x-tb Menasor.

    Maybe UT will modify Onslaught to acomodate those 5 cm somewhere... If they added side skirts to the combine mode then they could add 5 cm more height...

    But I'd prefer they not try to come up with an extra 5cm.

    Unless they also manage to fill out the legs and torso a bit so it has a better silhouette, more like the Zeta version. Hell, if they need to partsform to do it, I'm fine with that too. I just want all three modes to be awesome.

    They will try to stay competitive with the other 50 cm combiners...

    His thighs are already fine, maybe they need to be a little longer... I don't think they want to partsform extra parts other than the hands and feet...

    They're too skinny and his shoulders aren't wide enough. Combined mode is the only mode I don't like.

    I'll probably still get them though, because I love the bot modes.

    Edit: maybe combined mode is fine. Maybe it's actually good... I just think the Zeta version is better. But that's ALL Zeta has going for it. I think if I stop looking at Zeta combined, I'll like this one more.

    I'd have rathered they kept it closer to Ordin in size. I think he's too big, but probably not so much that I can live with it. I think Constructor is too big, I think DX9's Menasor is too big (and has car bots that are too big), and I think that XTB's Menasor is too big and too ugly (but I'll probably buy at least the cars and keep them uncombined).

    Yeah and ft OS is too big, should have made him 16" to go with gravity builder and combiner wars OP. The 3rd party companies should downsize all thier upcoming masterpiece figures to go with my chug collection. FT koot should be 3 inchs smaller and he would go great with my combiner wars prowl.

    Whole 5 cm on onslaught will be to much.
    He's oversized size if they do that.
    I can live with 2 cm extra in the leaders of the combiners.
