Toys on my table!

This was the set that I sprung for, since I have my FP Colossus set with RotF/Universe Bruticus for my G1 colors... and he was cheaper.

I like each of the molds. I don't love any of them, but I like em all. I'm particularly fond of Swindle's size in bot mode, even if he's very lightweight. They're all very lightweight, even combined. But I guess the mold reviews go best in the other thread... Oh, PS, you are AWESOME, Allosaur - I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get Onslaught's head to come all the way up... guess I needed to see it on the G2 version... just had to push past the tabs. His bot mode is many points better now... though those arms are still pretty silly.

I'm glad I got the set. They're not the greatest toys in the world, technically speaking, but they're all a lot of fun. I think the G2 colorscheme kinda helps remind me that they're just fun, and not to take it too seriously. I think Brawl is the only one that has a proper elbow joint as an arm, which KINDA bugs me (especially since I like him as a leg), but... meh. This toy is for play and fiddling with, not super dynamic posing, at least in my house.

So very glad I got this set. I'd really like to see a gallery of different ways to transform the limbs as arms... I can't figure out how to transform Blast Off and Swindle in a way I really like.

He does look kinda KOish based on the colors, but in person, I don't really think so, especially with the paint apps on the chest/grill and waist. He's very light, like I was saying above, but it's lack of plastic, not quality of plastic.

I love my set so much, and I've noted the easier should transformation on Swindle as well. Maybe that's been addressed and fixed on the upcoming Swindle figures.

Also, anyone else have any paint mishaps like my Vortex?

Care to elaborate? I can't tell with that picture...
Looking for any version of Armada Deluxe Optimus Prime or WfC Prime, blue Armada Firebot and pretty much any BM Vehicon or Energon Terrorcon molds, or JustiToys Dinorobot or Junkion Blacksmith's Tactical Officer (or Hyper Mode). Also looking for Armada Tidal Wave's missiles. PM me if you have any spares of these please!

The one black paint-app on his chest is painted too high.

Nice review and comparison shots, thanks! I have no regrets about cancelling my pre-order for this guy, I'm really not that into this Bruticus design in any of its variant colors and configurations. It's a good effort but I just don't need it in my collection.

I'm loving this set. So much fun to mess around with. How did you get Onslaught's head that high up? Every time I push it higher, it feels like I'm going to snap something?

I hold Onslaught's face and the back of Bruticus's head and push... it's tight to get it past the tabs at first.

That's a nice demonstration, thank you for posting it. I don't think anyone is really surprised.
