Personally I wouldn't bother.
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..
Warby Bruticus is awesome.. i still love him.. but.. get the KO.. it's not worth it to get the name brand now.
I got the original, not for the brand, but for the scale. #15InchForever
yeah, i have the original.. I wish i would have waited.. i'd of gotten the KO.. not the Oversized one, or the weird colored one, but the one that looks exactly like the Warby one, scale and all..
I couldn't find that.
That's the Wukong one.
yeah! that's the one.
it's way cheaper on Sirtoys.
Combaticons Diecast Bruticus - Combiner - SirToys.com
i keep looking at it.. but with the new Bruticus on the way from Unique Toys, i think i'll be happy with just the one
so i won this set for $200 and realize that now i have 4 Bruticus, FP, Warbo, FoC(MT), and CW(DW)
That's the simplified one. This is the wukong.. it's basically a warbo replica
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.
