    They are repaints. Something the energon combiners haven't as yet had. Classics 1 got a Devastator repaint of Constructicon Maximus. Universe 2 is getting the other two.

    I'll definately be passing on these sad excuses for G1 inspired combiners. Especially with all the red/blue clear plastic hands and feet. I swear it's almost worse than movie voyager Megatron. And that figures was/is an epic failure.

    I dunno....just like the Devastator, they might be cool if they had 5 different 'bots, instead of the repainted ones. makes it look cheesy, and rushed, and smacks of a quick way to make a buck.

    count me out. I have better things to waste my money on. Like taxes.

    I may get this just for the fact that I really like the molds they use for the limbs. I also missed out on the body the first time around.

    Just like the Classics Devestator, but in Universe style, I like it. I wish they had named him just Bruticus & skipped the Maximus though, but it dosen't matter. I wonder what the price point will be?

    The Cybertron Scourge repaint was already named Bruticus. Obviously they can't sell two different toys at a similar size the exact same name.

    I think the classics Devastators was supposed to be around $30, although when it came out at walmart they had it on clearance around me and I got it for $14.88. I am thinking these will be exclusives again like Devastators was. As long as they are not costco/sams/bj's exclusives.

    They look okay. I already have some of these torso or limbs so I really don't need 3 or 4 of the toys that are basically the same.
