    Love this set, I got it yesterday.

    Two things I cant figure out though.. how does Onslaught's backpack fold up in both robot and vehicle mode? The Bruticus head is too big in Onslaught mode to fold up decently.. and the ears get in the way, at least on mine, in Vehicle mode.

    Also.. the blasters made out of the hands.. how do you get Brawl to hold one? It's impossible it seems :(

    The Bruticus head fits in vehicle mode when you put his horns into Onslaught's fist holes, it's shown in the instructions.

    I haven't had Onslaught in robot mode yet with the new head, but I imagine there's a way to do it. If it didn't work, FP wouldn't have done it.

    The backpack isn't fully compressed in robot mode to make room for the shoulder missile pods. It sounds a bit halfassed... and it kinda is.

    I think my gripe with Onslaught is the shoulder mounted weapons, the feet in combined mode, could've been put to different use, or at least connect with better fit, perhaps on the feet to provide balance.

    The Bruticuii are for storing til a later date to help pay back school loans.

    I did the same thing with Crossfire 01 (Aerial Appendage) and kept them locked up for over a year.

    If I don't make anything to help pay down my school loans, at least I have a couple of neat bots to give out as gifts for xmas gift exchanges. lol

    Nope.. those Superion kits I have pictured are left over from my large stash I bought when they came out.

    Sweet haul bro!! It's the best feeling to open all of it to transform them and relive the sheer excitement of childhood, isn't it? Few things in life beat that feeling.

    FP Bruticus can only be described as awesome!! :rock :rock  It took me a while to get everything up because I had never opened my ROTF Bruticus set! :eek:  I had to learn how to fiddle with those before I did Explorer and Munitioner. BTW out of the 2 I prefer Explorer.

    Here are some pics:

    Yep, it was a great feeling watching the fedex truck arrive. :rock  The only bad thing is Bruticus stole the show. Henkei Bluestreak was thrown on my shelf and Ghost SS is back in plane mode. The Rumble/Frenzy toys do give Bruticus a run for its money however. They are so tiny and have tons of detail....

    Glad I didn't cancel that preorder, well... its not like I could because tfsource won't let you lol:lol .

    You gotta tighten the fingers around it a little bit, but it holds in there just fine.
