    We've seen these before. They're another wave of the Target Movie Scouts, and don't have anything to do with the Bruticus set. Even if they were a part of the Universe line, the names would still be wrong as the names for the Bruticus set are Onslaught, Blast Off, Swindle, Vortex, and Brawl. That and we've already seen the two helicopters in the set, neither one of them was green, and the clear plastic had a red tint to it, not blue.

    Those are target exclusive scouts, I've personally been waiting for Gunbarrel for a while now.

    These are different from the Combaticon gift-packs. They're from the (supposedly) last wave of Movie Target Exclusive scouts.

    Ummm...no, just two times and both in the Bruticus set (that we know of so far). These three figures here aren't a part of the Universe line at all.

    Uhh.... these are clearly movie line toys (neither of which are named after a G1 Combaticon as we know from the Combaticon's instructions) whereas the Combaticons are clearly 25th or Universe line toys.

    I don't get where your confusion came from.

    I was just wondering about these when the Bruticus instruction pic went up. These are entirely new images of the figures, maybe they aren't as dead as I thought.

    I was going to pick the limbs up & find the main body mold somewhere, but now with the 25th Bruticus coming up these are a pass.

    So, altogether, there will be 6 decos of the E. Bruticus limbs- 2 Original Energon figures, 2 Universe Bruticus figures, the Target exclusives, and the TFCC membership figures. I do like these molds, though. Has any other mold been done 6 times?

    Don't forget the Japanese Superlink versions. The tanks in particular were considerably different from the Hasbro versions.

    D4�@ƒLƒbƒNƒoƒbƒN

    G1 Optimus Prime, the G1 Seeker mold, RID Prowl and Side Burn, the Alternators Subaru mold, the G1 Combaticons, about half of the Armada Mini-Cons...

    Let's see... just for the original mold: US Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Acid Storm, Starscream 2, JPN Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker. Has Japan put out any black or clear ones yet? If not, that's 8 times it's been used.

    Now if they actually used the same mold for the coneheads, (kinda like how they're doing Sideswipe/Sunstreaker and Prowl/Silverstreak) that would add US Ramjet, Thrust, Dirge, JPN Ramjet... for a total of 12. We just KNOW a Sunstorm should be coming soon, and possibly others...

    Gunbarrel and Reverb are interesting evocative of Battle Gaia, to me.

    What about Energon Arcee?

    Seriously, mutiple re-decos of the same mold aren't something new to this fandom. Hell, I welcome it as long as we can get some decent looking paint jobs combined with some great looking molds.

    Now srsly, when does Gunbarrel come out? My Bruticus Maximus needs him a new Arm!

    I am picking up Gunbarrel simply because of his bio. "He'd have his brain removed if it made room for another cannon." is the best line in any Decepticon bio I have ever read, and I simply can not resist a guy with a firepower stat of 10 and an inteligence of 2. I will probably give Gunbarrel a new paint job, though, as the artic camo-ish he has in the package doesn't do it for me, and he will most certainly become the 5th limb to any 25th Aniversary combiner I get.
