    I think the price differential debate does a disservice of sorts to the validity of Zeta's Bruticus bots. One could infer that their lower price is the only reason to defer to Zeta's, which wouldn't be enough of an incentive for me even at $60. That's like saying everyone should eat at Olive Garden because they have tons of available parking. If you like something price is rarely a stopping point but it's amazing how tight fisted we fellow "addicts" can get when even a seemingly cheap thing doesn't fit the bill. All of a sudden even $60 seems like $1000.

    For what it's worth Zeta's figures could cost more and I think they'd be worth every penny.

    Thanks for the heads up, I guess knowing this now I can’t be surprised about the treads same thing I think happened to some with the constructor.

    Zeta should have included extra treads just in case.


    But it’s good to know that’s the only issue you had and that he feels proper and look great in both modes.

    They did... and depending what trouble you run into you may need them.

    The way the treads thread into the leg/rear tank section is also a bit of a pain. But YMMV as to whether this is a thing.

    I'm pretty sure BensCollectables posted a pic a day or two ago, that he had received a copy. I'm surprised he hasn't dropped a review yet

    He had a vote up to decide which figure he received would be reviewed first. MPM Barricade was winning, Uproar will likely be after as it was in 2nd.

    Went through TCP today and Thursday is the day.
    Then in tank mode it will stay until Bruticus I play.

    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.
