Someone convince me to get/not get Bruticus. I have the FP ones, but they're so small... and 3 arent the right look... Also considering Dudicus... don't know what to do!

The pains of having it first...(I'm sure the idiots on eBay will pay double that when it comes out..)

GET DUDICUS!

reasons why: Onslaught is/can be a very likeable figure. the head sculpt is amazing (though for the Dudicus version i'd advise painting that purple head of his), for the most part he's game accurate, plastic feels very sturdy, and he's quite poseable and looks good with Brawl's gun in his hand and his own gun wedged in his back. His alt mode is alright. Looks great from the front, and really isn't quite as bad as people say it is.

Brawl is a great figure. Excellent detailing, good articulation, and very durable. If you have the patience, his feet really aren't that bad. and if you don't like either of his regular modes, there's always his turret mode.

Swindle isn't too bad. As long as you don't look at him from the back you should be fine. My only real gripes are the tabs. Really scary so you may want to widen the tab slots a bit so they're easier to pull out but not loose as hell (or just don't tab them in. your choice). Or you could strengthen the tabs by putting some epoxy behind and around them.

Blast Off, despite his awkward shoulders, is a beautiful figure and probably the most game accurate in both modes. Detailing is nice, and he's got some good poses. He can hold his guns a few different ways so you have some freedom there, and the gestalt fists in his legs make it so you can plug his guns in for G1 accuracy (he also looks good with Brawl's gun in hand). Alt mode is spectacular and has great detailing, and if you have some clear generic stands, it makes a great display piece. And it's kinda fun to fly around the room if you're bored

Vortex has a decent robot mode. Good paint apps and sculpting. If you're good at modding, his blades CAN be placed on his back (there's a thread in the radicons where someone modded his blades but I'll have to find it). His knives make good-looking guns but I prefer to have him hold them downwards like daggers. His alt mode is great and, on a stand, makes a good display piece.

Bruticus isn't necessarily the best combiner but he's a damn good one. Since he has Scramble City capabilities, you have a lot of freedom to fiddle around until you find a combination and limb transformation you want. If Vortex's gestalt hand bugs you that much, you can still rotate his chopper gun out. And Hopeless Havoc found an excellent flamethrower configuration for Blast Off.

Needless to say, the FOC Combaticons are a "preference" type of team when it comes to transformation, combining, and display. Pretty much everything about them is up to you.

I don't understand the rush on it. I mean, it's not like it will be missed or something. It is 3 to a case!
