    First things first Hasbro will not shortpack any figure from this wave. They only do that to ry to sell what they perceive as the most popular figures in a wave. This is a combining unit with five equally important parts. it would be in their best interest financially to make the wave with equal distribution of all members.

    With that said I'm glad I won't be chasing these scout sized combining transformers. Some of you are gonna be ready to scream when these hit the shelves trying to locate them all. Hell, as it is the big box stores are watching their inventories closely because of the economy. Half the pegs in all three stores by my house are empty and have been for months. If I really wanted thee I would just buy the giftset. But keep in mind your gonna pay $80 for something that is just a hair taller than a PCC combiner. Easy pass on this one.

    Does anyone here think that this could be pretty good if there were third party parts for it like:

    New Onslaught

    Cannons on back

    New articulated hands

    Idk about you, but I think so. Especially on the SDCC version INSTEAD of the G2.

    WTF is with all of the exclusives lately?

    It's like you have to buy one figure at a time from a variety of different retailers in order to complete a line of toys nowadays.

    How tall would you say he stands, compared to a Leader class figure, voyager or even the original G1 Brutiucs?

    I really doubt those saying the size is closer to that of a PCC combiner, as the limbs would have to be cyberverse commander size. Even if the limbs are small deluxes, I imagine this guy being eye to eye with FP Superion.

    based off the pics, it seems he's a little bit taller than the MP10 Convoy, and from what Ive heard, MP10 is more or less in scale with a leader class figure (10-12 inches)....so if I'm correct, he might be slightly taller than a leader class figure?

    Check out Stad's reply to my post. See, it's possible to correct someone without being snarky.

    MP-10 is almost exactly the same height as RotF Leader Prime.

    To me it sounds like this Bruticus will be taller than that but shorter than Unicron. Prolly somewhere in the middle of the two.

    Sounds like it will be a good height then. Unicron is massive!

    as much as i want this to be good and maybe make bigger better things in the future for us, it kinda sucks and if we keep buying suck, suck will continue to happen.

    having said that, i might still buy this for the individual bots and alt modes though once i see reviews and just have the Brute for kicks.

    Weird. I would have thought an amazon exclusive would have been the perfect place to do the SDCC colors.

    Still, if the price is right, and lower than buying them individually at retail, I may go for this.

    Have to see how kids react, but without being a blatant tie to the in-game character this one is a hard sell imo. Other's here have suggested that Hasbro as shooting themselves in the foot and I tend to agree.

    Hmmm...Does not look any less appalling than Energon Bruticus Maximus or G2 Bruticus and Hasbro did not seem to shoot themselves with those paint schemes.

    Doubtful if this does not sell it will put a damper on Hasbro. They produce enough revenue to have room to get a few things wrong here and there.
