    Depends on what you want. I don't think Warbo is a bad set. However it's also not super G1, if that's what you're looking for.

    For not much more than you'd spend to get the two you're missing you could get the entire Jinbao version. Alternatively, you could get the UT Brawl and Swindle that look a lot more G1.

    As much as I agree with supporting the original companies, they've gotten their run out of WB-01. Get the Jinbao. Better set overall with a lot of fixes, only real issue with it is the scale, if that matters to you. Otherwise it is superior in every way and costs less than what you'd spend to complete yours.

    I sorta agree. Value wise the jb version kicks @ss. For less than the price of the 3 bots ud have to buy, you could get the whole set incl shipping.

    The jb set is pretty awesome and one ofy favs. However, I do find the plastic a bit glossy/waxy compared to the original which is more matte. I kind of like the finish on the original better, but it is a bit prone to stress marks.

    Both are good sets and I don't regret either purchase..

    That's the simplified one. This is the wukong.. it's basically a warbo replica
    WuKong WK09-Onslaught

    Still..go with jinbao. I've had both, and sold warbo a while back.

    Finally able to transform and take the following pictures. I call these guys the first set of Decepticon triplets! Why? Aside from Devastator being introduced in the last episode of season 1, these guys basically dominated the combiner episodes of season 2. And all three have earth vehicle modes, unlike the latter three that are all creatures. I'm also amused that each of these guys is the first combiner attempt by the three different iterations of what is basically the same company: Warbotron/Generation Toy/TransForm Mission.

    I tried to capture Bruticus in a brutish-looking stance. He is the best combiner of the three, though the Combaticons are the weakest, especially Onslaught. Alt modes are okay.

    That's probably the oversized KO of Feral rex, and their arms fold and peg in around the back in leg mode.

    Nope! But I totally see how these might be confused for the ko oversize versions. both were the official versions of these releases when I posted this years ago.( has to be at least 2-3 years I think. Maybe I'm wrong) all I did was extend Rex to his fullest height and then I hated his bell bottom looking feet so for combined mode I actually just removed the side legs to bovis and fortis so Rex doesn't have as much as a A-stance. And lastly if you look carefully the head isn't sittin completely down on Rex, I just raised the head a little as much as I could without destroying the sculpt. Loved both sets when I had them at the time! Great figures

    These guys ended up being my first foray into 3p and while later offerings have refined their craft with people going to GT/TFM, I am still fond of these guys. Their Swindle is probably my single favorite individual figure of the bunch. (Dat smirk.)

    I've got both the complete Warbotron set and the Jinbao set. I personally like the Warbotron set a bit better. They feel a little more sturdy, whereas the Jinbao has a cheaper, lighter feel to them despite being bigger. I also like the light piping in the Warbotron Combaticon's eyes, the Jinbao set doesn't seem to have much, if any, of that. If you like light piping like I do, that's a plus for the Warbotron set. However, they're both nice sets.

    Is Bruticus meant to be the same size as Devy?
