    I got mine today!

    Only issue I have is that it seems that you have to take off the combiner head if you want to transform onslaught into bot mode.

    The old head was small enough that it just tucked inside the chest, but the new head is just too big for that...unless I missed something.

    Hey xaedrahk, just thought I would point out that you have his left leg mistransformed. The turret from the energon tank mold rotates around so that it isnt hanging off the back like in your pic.

    I know that sounds confusing, so if you want a pic of how its supposed to be let me know and I'll post it. Its minor, but definitly makes it look nicer, and it wont be covering the "knee rockets' on bruticus' left leg

    There.

    Also rotated the Onslaught arms 180 degrees at the elbow so his shoulder motion's freed up considerably now.

    I got mine today. It's glorious. The clouds in sky actually parted and a beam of sunshine illuminated me as I opened the box for Munitioner.

    mine was missing 2 screws on one of the briticus feet...when I took the foot off, it came apart into 3 pieces. I had to borrow a screw from the other foot.

    Minor issue for sure, I still LOVE this guy

    got both today from UPS.

    Thanks BBTS!

    Now I am in pain. They both look so kick ass alone, I almost hate to combine them...

    Maybe i need another set...

    I'm surprised Fansproject didn't include some clip on faces for Onslaught, Brawl, and Vortex. They managed to get a a visor on Superion. I'm pretty sure they could come up with a way to give these guys some new mugs.

    Superion was already designed to have a visor. It just got cut from the final toy, for whatever reason. You can see it in the boxart for the Superlink version.

    Tacking a face onto these guys would look pretty weird, I think, giving them really long heads. Plus there's probably some clearance issues. That, and there's no way to really secure them.
