generations FOC bruticus appreciation thread

Title says it all =) this thread is for APPRECIATION ONLY! provide a hateful comment and i will flag it.

I own the G2 version of the FOC combaticons and MAN do i love them! The colors (minus vortex's blue) are pretty spot on to the original toys which i've only had the pleasure of seeing a couple times but i love the SDCC and retail verions colored like the energon combaticons as well.

Yes the molds have flaws and no the gestalt mode isnt perfect but we also must face facts that in these current economic times hasbro had to sacrifice a few things but the end result is still amazing =)

so tell me fellow esteemed members of the board, what about FOC bruticus do you love and which deco is your favorite? Do you think theres a possibility a 3rd party company might make a voyager sized onslaught for each deco? which member of the combaticons is your favorite and for what reason?

all in all i'm glad hasbro made these figures cause they have now IMHO opened the door to combiners back open since energon/superlink
make my profile pic your profile pic if you wanna help #SpreadTheWhirl

I love the 'Scramble City' aspect of them, how any bot ('cept Onslaught) can be any limb, with even the switchable thumbs to allow for left or right hands.

As I only have the store version, the colorful version works for me.

Though with me, I kind of prefer to differ from how the package shows the combine mode.

I find this style a bit more balance out:
TFG Sky-Byte: "I'm going out as a clown for Halloween!"
RID Scourge: "How is that different than the other 364 days of the year?"

I personally love my G2 Dudicus. I love it so much that I ordered a second set.
Searching for G1 Sideswipe MIB and an Actionmaster Sideswipe MOSC! Shoot me a message if you're selling one! Open to trades.

Wouldn't say he's the best figure released this year by any means, but Bruticus is still one cracking TF! Without doubt the best gestalt we've had since RID.

I stick mine in my own configuration for display...just seems to blend better proportionally to me...
