Third party group "Warbotron" released prototype pictures today of their take on G1 Bruticus and the combaticons, currently only known as "WB01". This previously unknown group skipped months of speculation and veiled silhouettes, instead revealing all of their figures and their alt-modes in plastic in one fell swoop!

Check out this unexpected surprise by clicking on the link below.

Wha what!?

I'm in line! These look terrific - almost like a MP Bruticus!
Paladin
New group? If so, interesting and ambitious first try.
Slimaximus
Now that is how you do an announcement, other companies take note. So yeah I'm probably going to sell my fp bruticus now
Zavien
Wow, sign me up for a preorder, dam that looks good.
General Tekno
They tweeted out more pics to Peaugh of the individual robots and the altmodes.

I really want to know more about these guys yesterday. Is this a new group, are these established third party designers, how much will it cost.... seriously, this is amazing.
archieboy
Nice job TFC, now you finally have my attention.
Zavien
Agreed I want to know more. I want to subscribe unless an actual thread is made.
Zavien
That's not TFC is it?
RDprime
supervir2
Doesn't look like tfc's work - at least it departs markedly from their prev style
seali_me
OMG! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Where's onslaught24?

It's not TFC since it doesn't have a greek god name.
TigerBlade
Fuck. Bought!
Backstop
amazing amazing AMAZING!
DoubleClouder
They fixed the one thing I have a complaint about 3rd part items. The faces. They look like the animation models. Fantastic!
StayingInTheBox
Fucking A, where did this come from?!?!
megatroptimus
Come to papa.

And release the entire set all at once.
Zavien
Whoever made this looks like they are far along. Need more info please

My thoughts exactly. +100 points for no silhouette bullshittery.

They definitely look awesome, but might be a little too big for me.
daimchoc
BRUTICUS!!!! Finally!
Smashs
Ah shit. FU WALLET.
zfarsh
oh my god, it is BRUTICUS.

I am liking them in Robot Mode and Vehicle mode, FANTASTIC, all 5 of them. The size is nice too. The combined mode, it would like to see some improvements, but I think it is too late.

Recommendation for combined mode to consider
- The Arm joints at the elbows, if you can make this not visible, it would improve your design a lot. Check out the Feral Rex from MMC, there joint is hidden / different, and I think the TFC Ares as well.
- The Back Cannons Extending and becoming longer, in case it is not already implemented.

Anyways, if you price is good on the individual bots and quality is descent, I will get Blastoff for sure, and probably the Vortex too.

Mr. Brown man Pascal

T'es fou en estie.
Weitat1988
omg this is pure awesome
I guess they are pretty in scale with TFC Hercules ?
dougzx9
This will be mine, now I can quit hunting for FP Bruticus.
FatedLazarus
...oh dear god. This is how you reveal a project.
GaussGunner
WTF!! Is beautifull!! And this ROTF style is very and very nice!!
BaltMatrix
Dear Warbotron team,

Shut up and take my money.

Thanks,
Slimaximus
Anyone that thinks this is TFC is seriously not paying attention, they never do accurate headsculpts.
Scaleface
Ouch, this is gonna hurt my wallet.
TJ Duckett
... WOW. Fantastic!
daimchoc
Is this group an offshoot from TFC? Or completely new?

Comparing to the FP bots in this pic



I'd say a little bigger than an extended Herc. I can so live with that.

What excites me the most about this (apart from the utter G1 perfection and MP style) is that they look really far along already. I'd love it if they pulled a Fanstoys and put this out soon.....all 5 of them.....

I can't stop looking at the pics, I'm like a 7 year old looking at catalogue pics again!!
AUTOBOT215
BIGGER IS BETTER and here is the Proof! OMG I don't know if its TFC or a company modeled after TFC but it has the resemblance of their work! I can't imagine anything competing with this and that is a rare statement coming from me!
primetime77
ummmm...WTF?!?! looks like it may be the best 3P combiner EVER....from an unknown. feral rex...you have a contender for that throne if indeed you get it.

EDIT....upon closer inspection (wow wow wow!!!) this has already now FAR exceeded my excitement for feral rex. that is sayign something!!
General Tekno
Well, nobody's tried Bruticus given FansProject/Hasbro both went into that arena.

I'm glad SOMEBODY went "you know what? We can do better."

Let's just hope it doesn't lead to umpteen Bruticii.

1) Resolution of the pics is not high enough to judge the accuracy of the head sculpts.

2) TFC does fine work on face plates. I see at least four heads here with face plates.

3) I was paying too much attention on TFC's signature giganto hands.
Bountyan
I may actually buy this if the quality is good and it looks good with Giant.

And this is exactly how third parties should start off. No silhouette bullshit, no teasing bullshit, just show us a good product and people will like it.
zfarsh
This is indeed big. I cant wait for more details on Blast-Off and Vortex!!!
seali_me
The head sculpts look fantastic. Love it. Reminds me of TW Megatron. Quite direct.

Too bad Hasbro/Takara were beaten to it. Tsk. Tsk.
jbz
and here we go....awesome!
Fort Max
This is how make an entrance.
jbz
Too bad the original post is likely not going to get updated since that was the posters first and only post

It's gonna dwarf Giant.

I've just noticed the MP styled hands too and Swindle smirking. I am soooo excite for this
TheGame2K5
As awesome as this is, please dont release it all too soon, my wallet is already at its breaking point. lol
Cax6ton
Masterpiece. This will be welcome in my home anytime.
DisappearingOne
Looks to be more or less in the TFC/MMC combiner scale which is a huge plus as far as I'm concerned. Definitely looking foward to learning more about this set.
MegaMoonMan
Dear god, that is NOT going to be affordable.

it needed to be done. FP had YEARS to remake the rest of the members better for a full bruticus....they didn't. this thing looks like it will blow anything FP ever made out of the water. i LOVE that they showed it next to a tiny FP Intimidated bot. lol.

There will be no bruticus war. this company looks far enoough along and i can't imagine any of the known players releasing anything that looks this good (that isn't already tied up with their own projects). For those thinking this is an offshoot of TFC? i don't see it. These bots look much better and more detailed. they are chunky....but TFC doesn't corner the market on that. The lone criticism i have here i the elbows, but although they are similar to FP's Intimadated, it looks a lot more fucntional and less "empty". i can't stop gushing at this thing.
