FansProject release of the other 3 G1 Bruticus components? (Onslaught,Vortex, Brawl)

It would seem that these would be in very high demand since there's already a massive built-in customer base with so many collectors owning Munitioner and Explorer.

It should be easy for them to create their improved versions of these 3 characters rather than rely on Hasbro's Energon versions that differ greatly in aesthetic compared to their G1 counterparts.

I bet it's just a matter of time, since they have so many other projects in motion, though have the only foothold with Bruticus. It's as if they already have a monopoly on that character since Munitioner and Explorer were the first 3rd party combiner figures.

I'd like a new Brawl but I think I'm happy enough with the official Onslaught and Vortex. It would be cool if they did it, but I'd rather spend my money on characters I don't have at all rather than replacing characters I'm already fairly satisfied with for better ones.

You and me both. To be fair, it doesn't take too much to excite me when I'm sitting at home at 1am on a Saturday night.

Says you. They're great figures in their own right. Just maybe not as the Combaticons (although, apart from the head, the Barricade mold looks a lot like Onslaught).

I'd rather have FP or MT completely restart Bruticus to scale better with the Stunticons in robot mode.

It would be great if FP made the other three. I would preorder all three.

^As would I, but it isn't a priority for me, especially with Menasor, Predakings, Sixshot, Superion (already partway out), Headmasters, etc, etc, etc, coming down the pike. I am more than happy with my Bruticus with FP upgrades as is right now. Wouldn't mind if TFClub gave us a new somewhat larger version of him to go along with Superion and Devs, but I don't have the wallet space for much of anything right now.
Wants: Botcon Grimlock, Dreadwing, Henkei Sunstreaker, G1 Mirage Junker.

I hear that.

I'm not a fan of the TFClub stuff, though. Even with Superion, the individual bots are a bit blocky for my tastes. (I really like how Herc's arms transform without extra parts, but I went with Giant because I like the individual bots more.) So TFClub can Tackle Bruticus if they want, but I still want FP to do the other members.
