    So, I recently acquired a new bruticus(KO) after having to sell the last one due to budget issues

    and tbh this ko is neat, it does minor differences from the official, also it can hold that (shoulder pose) really well if you want. I am considering painting the chest like the blastoff wings but idk yet, maybe even hunting a potp blastoff, my last one I added one of the cw guns onto the crotch to make it a little bigger but this time, im not doing that, I figured out the FP colossus guns make for excellent chest fillers! dont even need to drill holes for attatchments also this ko was 45$
    I am for sure not hunting the PE feet and hands, too overpriced for a set now, and idc enough about it

    Also pic below was my previous bruticus

    I love the added silver highlights. I have this version and bought a KO of the PC-10. Nice big back cannons that also fill in the chest nicely. And it came with a silver head which was great as I can't paint for crap lol.

    Not exactly Combiner Wars, but I just got the CBB USKO Devastator from SirToys and I love it. I've never owned the CW or UW Devastator before, so this is my only experience with the molds, but they all seem pretty nice. I've finally filled the Devastator-sized hole in my collection!

    I just got mine a few months ago as well. I agree. In fact I’m tempted to get the yellow version too.

    Heck I'm thinking of getting it and I already have the official version. :p 
    The lack of detail and paint on the individual constructicons, coupled with their GIGANTIC size makes pairing them with my WFC chug look terrible. The KO at least seems a lot less offensive at a smaller scale. I've heard these things were voyagers back in the day, but compared to how much HasTak has shrunk the classes, they're practically leader class size by modern chug standards.

    I'd agree to the leader class thing.

    My main issues with my CM Devastator are the lack of detail, how cheap they kinda are, very empty, the arms of the individuals are a joke and no individuals weapons (which I eventually ended up giving in and got the PE kit), and then the cement truck's front that just looks off.

    So how the latest figures are coming out, that would be what I can see as "leader class" being and the worst about it is how many would "love" it and defend the low bar set.

    For the size, I prefer the teams to be closer to their alt mode, and as construction vehicles are much larger than cars, these guys are much more fitting being larger...

    Same with Bruticus and Superion.

    Menasor and Defensor are great at the car size, Abonimous is give and take as no defined size for monsters (similar with Computron as they aren't earth vehicles), etc.

    I'll keep him in combined mode or alt mode I guess. But I wish I had Constructicons in the scale and aesthetic of WFC/Legacy. They're pretty big characters to ignore considering WFC was like the same characters over and over again with tons of D tier characters sprinkled in.

    There's always gravity builder Devastator/Generation toys (also the NBK KO version that's much cheaper) that are not titan sized and might fit what you're looking for then.

    Great job! This kit makes CW Optimus into a superior figure... The only downside, is that the waist is really loose as well as the hips. This makes it hard to pose him in combined mode.. I've been thinking about revisiting this, and putting either some stronger springs into the hips, or putting in a layer of eraser rubber, but I would have to remove that big pin again...

    Another ko, here's Machine Boy Red Comet aka OSKO Powerglide. He's in scale with the WFC minibots and comes with weapons. Articulation is a bit wonky since it's just an upsize of a legends-class mold and his weapon mode is now too large for CW combiners to hold, but for $7 he'll fit the bill until we get a new CHUG deluxe of him.
