you just beat me to this. a friend of ours makes these

you should probably have this moved to the video feedback thread.
Cheem The Rup
just watched in HD on my Imac 27''.... the word "amazing" is not enough for this video-review: my greatest congrats to the creators ^__^
Hobbes-timus Prime
Great video.

I haven't anticipated a toy this much in a while.
chrisr291
looks pretty bad ass.... to bad the release date is now mid/late august
biscuits
You beat me to it =)
MACRAPTRON
Nice, they even used my fanart of the Combaticons on it.
Deadsled
he CAN hold WST Shockwave and it's pretty close to scale!

happy dance!!
Reigner
This review has made me want a WST Shockwave.

I wish TFsource did a PoL so I didnt have to pay extra shipping for him though
MaxLinden
O_o
must buy now!
bulletthebluesky
Wow, that was pretty damn cool. I knew the toy would be awesome, but the production work put into that video was pretty awesome as well. I loved the stop motion transformations and whatnot.
DarthPrime117
I want to get a good scale Starscream to put on the shoulder. I never thought of doing that until I saw the review. Starscream's Brigade is probably my favorite episode.
Deadend
That's just freaking epicly beautiful. Words just cannot convey the awesomeness here.

I did a survey for them some time ago and that is the number one thing I told them that they need: a Pile of Loot.
Rodentus prime
I like to see that the guns have several modes - I want to give Swi- Munitioner some proper artillery...
Tirade
I can't view the vid. I keep getting an error. Is this happening to anyone else?
Tiller
Being a gun-o-phile, this set has my nerd hype cranked up to 11. Preordering today before work. Sorry, MP Grimlock, I don't know if you'll even ship from TRU!
influence82
How do you attach the combined mode head?
Mechafire
Looks simply amazing. The review itself was great too.

Just email them and ask them to add a WST Shockwave to your order. They'll ship it all at the same time. I did that a month or so ago when I saw they had the WST Shockwave in stock. Kurt over there email me back within a couple days and told me it was not a problem and I could just pay for the whole order when the Crossfire sets come in.

As far as I can tell (someone can correct me if I'm wrong), the whole panel that the head is attached to replaces the existing panel that holds the Bruticus head on Onslaught. The one on Onslaught just pops off so it's a very easy and straight forward swap.
chrisr291
yeah, thats what i did as well. tfsource is holding mp ghost ss, frenzy/rumble, henkei bluestreak and this set. its not a hassle at all, give it a try
Kevin XI
No, too bad you still need the other three crappy energon figures. Hopefully FP makes thier own gestalt set in the future.
bulletthebluesky
After watching that video (for a second time now) I wish I had ordered two sets... but I can't afford that, so I'll be constantly debating on which mode they'll get displayed in.
Ultimate Matt X
Is there any thing about the colors of these and their accessories that would make it look like crap with the Energon Bruticus guys instead of the RotF ones? From what I can tell it seems like the only way the Energon set would be less accurate is the brighter colors.
Wyvern
Wow... I can't wait. Thinking of getting two sets now..
BScorpinok75
Wow. Can't wait til these bad boys ship.
Terramotus
Simply beautiful. Glad I already ordered them. They'll look amazing in my display.

No, I just looked at mine and it definitly will not just pop off. Maybe it is just a head swap. Because the bar going through the hinge is solid. meaning no popping.

great review though
looking to get my four sets
one of each set for both versions
and one for individual display and one to keep in box for future sale

Actually, it does just pop off. Mine has done so many, many times. There's a slot in the part of the hinge that is attached to the head panel which allows it to detach from that continuous bar within the hinge.

yes, you can just pop the combiner head off bruticus.


that is how it looks when you pop it off. Its not broke, and it takes very little effort to do it. Doesnt even seem like it would stay on when you see it off

These sets are beautiful and I'm hoping that FP, at the very least, gives us some new heads for the 3 other Energon guys so they look more cohesive in their individual robot modes.

IMO, merged into Bruticus and they look fantastic combined. Displayed in their individual robot modes and the 3 Energon guys stand out like a sore thumb.
Houndvoice
Probably the best TF videoreview I've ever seen!
Though now I want to order a second set of these.... Dammit!
Teletran
i dont have energon bruticus, but ive thought of getting these two guys just cause theyre so cool. could always use them as g1 swindle and blast off (cept in combined mode. that wouldnt quite work), or just as their own characters

They will not give us new heads. They make add-ons, not take-it-apart-and-replace-the piece-kits.
Magmatron22
Just ordered mine 3 min ago

Who says, are you their PR guy? Bruticus' new head replaces the old gestalt head. That's a take-it-apart-and-replace-the-piece if I ever saw one. Hell the Not-Swindle and Not-Blast-Off ARE replacement pieces not add-ons.

All I'm saying is it would be nice if we got a seperate add-on later on. Like the City Commander add-on set they released a while back with the gun and missle pods. Geez, don't be such a killjoy.
bradforj
If FP won't replace the other three heads, perhaps HEADROBOTS will! They have done a nice job on Whirl and Bludgeon. Maybe I will contact some of the HR guys about this idea.
Tirade
I don't see why FP would be unwilling to produce new heads for the individual figures. I'm sure that would go over well with those that have already ordered Munitioner and Explorer.

As for HeadRobots making replacement heads, I'd rather have them focus their efforts on HM stuff.
009*
I'd still like to see these guys attached to the energon version, just to see what the combo would look like.
Stormcrow
SO, it's basically the greatest thing ever.
anubis20
I cant wait for this set, I need to actually open my Universe Bruticus and play with it so I can learn how to transform it . I bought it about 2 months ago and threw it in the back of the closet waiting for this set to come out.
Sioce
I am so ready for this set!

Come one FP work out the issues and let's get it rollin'

One of the best TFs out there as far as I am concerned!
OptimusKronk
really, i'll have to check again

you are right, i just popped it off

my bad

thanks
acave720
Wonder what it looks like with the energon colored figures.
GreenScream
This is such a killer upgrade set.

Fansproject has truly outdone themselves. They've set a new benchmark. So much better than City Commander and Superion upgrade.
Railguard
This looks great!!! Too bad it costs soo much money...pass.
TCracker
Yes, will be mine. Glad I pre-ordered.
Vince
Man that set looks super awesome. I'm beginning to regret not picking up that rotf bruticus set at Zellers :S There was a wall of them a couple months ago!
Deceptigtar
yeah fp just keeps improving on its self over and over. i deffinately think this set will go down in tf history of the big break in the 3rd party makers of tf products.
