    The only reason I'm going with this set is combined mode, mostly driven by scale. Constructor has raised the bar on how I think MP combiners should scale. Unfortunately that means that stuff I already have, as well as other options like UT just don't cut it in combined mode.

    No surprise there.

    A lot of people jump ship from one retailer to another once a release starts to pop up. It's as if the in-hand pictures from other collectors are daggers thru the heart when you've reserved/pre-ordered. lol..

    ^ The treads look like a total pain in the neck.....

    Anyway, the leg mode looks like a rock...

    the battle of the bulge continues! but i guess he is a tank, so at least he has an excuse! And as per the sentiment about the other members feet, its good to see he has real feet! Its a shame about dem treads tho......

    Yup. I wanted the UT Combaticons/Bruticus to scale with Toyworld/Zeta Devastator but they are sized to Combiner Wars Devastator. Sooooo...here I am buying Zeta essentially for combined mode scale/looks.

    I mean, stability is important too, UT’s onslaught’s ratchets break when you play with them.

    Zeta. MMCs is smaller, most likely less stable, and is most likely more expensive.

    I wish he'd shown the UT Brawl in combined mode with him. I'm curious how close in size they limb bots all are as limbs!

    The height differences aren't that drastic are they?

    UW Devi would look good next to UT Bruticus. ZT bruticus is the same height as constructor so there is a significant difference in height as well as width.

    Yeeeeeeee GODS! The tank treads on brawl are just a frickin shambles.

    I was a big fan of how they did them on constructor and the way they cleverly held them in place for the knees on the bots, not so here sadly. Its like they've put no thought into it at all, just pile them into an empty space we've left for them.
    The way they just flap about constantly as your trying to transform him is profoundly irritating, to the point I've just taken them off and had done with it. At least they are easy enough to put back on if I want him in tank mode.

    Okay, how bout the rest of him then :p 

    Apart from the obvious leg area he's relatively kibble free, has the usual chunky Zeta feel and all the plastics feel good.
    Tank and combined mode are both rock solid, though there are a few annoying tabs in the arms for both modes.

    Not keen on the green they chose, its too dark for me. And they eye paint is a mess, the first two had a glorious metallic red, brawl got a thinly applied awful gloss orange, thats gotta go.

    Cant say I like him as much as the first two sadly.
