    Yeaaahhh. Thank you sir. I've got the ROTF set, but I think that 2007 Decepticon Reverb is the way to go.

    I don't think my budget can afford another Swindle and Vortex to make Bruticus seem more symetrical .

    i don't think its gonna be devastator

    Just my opinion but for the first project they just made parts for the Superion figure. Second project they make just about half of the Bruticus figure with their own figures. The third project could very well be a combiner of their own design, all of the figures.

    It just seems like a progression. Parts-figure-whole combiner. Kinda makes sense right? Or am I just talking out me bum!

    I hope it's the Glacial Bots for X-Fire 03...

    Also, I like Bruticus as he is by Fansproject. Having 2x Munitioner/Swindle just looks too "normal" for me. Half the fun of the gestalts are their asymmetrical looks.

    He never saw release outside the US.

    I don't care if it is devestator, a menasor or Defensor would be more exciting.

    this image says TFX next to the text so the glacialbots are more likely to be the next combiner.

    anyway, on topic. I look forward to getting a proper bruticus in my hands.

    Wow, I'm really impressed that FP designed the instructions in G1 pictorial style, which is soooooo much easier to understand and comprehend than the current 2D CAD style, bland black & white crap that Hasbro gives us today.

    That just being said about the instructions, the rest of the product looks amazing and looks like it will deliver instantly. Once the majority of folks find out about this, this thing will be sold out in no time and probably even KO'd, because I foresee this as being in demand for a long time.

    Get 'em while you still can people, or you'll be sorry. lol

    I hope the third set will be the technobots...I always thought they were cool. it would go great with MP Grimlock. I guess we'll wait and see.

    I *really* like the way that Bruticus looks - especially with Shockwave in his hand (wst?). Won't be buying it, though, because (unless I am thinking of the wrong gestalt) the vehicles are not to scale with my Deluxe/Voyager figs. :(

    And may the living-vicariously-through-others-continue...

    This wait has been way too long. Mucho curious regarding XFire03, I personally don't think Devastator is a sound business decision as not enough people (like me) own one compared to Superion and Bruticus. My guess is the Glacialbot combiner, as every newly announced project was something previewed at TFCon 2009.

    It's not going to be the Glacialbot combiner, because that's an in-house concept. Crossfire is supposed to be for projects designed by people outside of the core FansProject team.
