    I a big Brutucis collector and aim to have every mold of him put out. As of right now I have my sights set on a Kabaya Bruticus but am having issues finding one.

    Im able to find onslaught with no real issue on eBay but cant find any of the limbs. Does anyone know where I could find them?

    Also a side question, has there been any Bruticus figures I ve missed from my collection? Pretty sure iv got most if not all of them thus far?

    Doesn't look like you have the Amazon G2 War for Cybertron version.

    That answers my question! Other than repaints, the only other Bruticus I can think of is the mini Decoy figure, unless you're only going for transformable figures.

    Also, I'd move this post here: Wanted Items

    Doesn't have to transform, they are all equal in my eyes

    And I've thought about the decory figures but I worried that the rubber would decay over time. Though other then that I never really looked into or have seen one for sale.

    Unfortunately I haven't seen the limbs advertised anywhere (even ebay) for a few years now.


    While your not looking to have every repaint, you really should consider getting a G1 Bruticus. The Ruination deco is nice, but the original color scheme is so iconic.

    I've brought up this question once in a discord server once too and that was one of the recommendations that actually came up as well. But believe it or not if I could I would have Runination setting there as a centerpiece.

    When I grew up the first show that introductioned me to transformer was RID 2001 and my favorite toy hands down ended up being Ruination. Can't really say I loved him cuz of the show cuz I was young and didn't remember half of it. But the toy I l o v e d !
    I also watched season one of g1 and the 1986 movie but it wasn't until I was much older that I watch season two and beyond of g1 thus I never knew of Bruticus or the fact that Ruination was just a recolor of the g1 toy.
    However, when I did watch season two I also loved g1s Bruticus as well and its why I've slowlyed started to collect all of his figures.

    But because of just how all of that worked Ruination kind of came first and Bruticus ended up becoming the recolor. Low key of MMC does a Runatation recolor I would rebuy the whole set no questions asked

    Thou I do agree that a g1 Brutiucs would be nice to have. I even considered getting all the Brutiucs recolors (Ruination, Valdigus, G1/ G2 colors, [Desert / Urban] Camo, and battle Gaia) and have then sit on a second self above the main Brutiucs collection. Kind of like have a little military of robo-bois ready to kick some butt

    If you go to TFWiki, it'll list all of the official releases of Bruticus over the years. The description of each version lets you know what repaints the figures have gotten.

    I have an oversized ko of G1 Bruticus that I bought on EBay back in 2005. Onslaught is the same size as POTP Rodimus Prime.

    It's a Korean knock off. I was lucky that got it for less than €150 back then. It doesn't turn up much these days and is usually around the €1000 mark.

    As much as I like it, Vortex and Blast Off have very weak shoulders. Vortex broke the first time I transformed him. Blutack holds the two fliers in both modes but their fragility is definitely not worth what sellers charge for them.

    I have another, larger ko that came in G2 colours which is sturdier. I also got a Brawl on Armorhide's beige Camo from the RID cartoon.

    Here's a few pics of the oversized Onslaught and Brawl with other Transformers to give you an idea of the scale.

    I only pulled oversized Bruticus out of storage last week and I'm still looking in the boxes for the Bruticus head but I've taken a photo of the toy just now beside G1 Scorponok, CHUG Cyclonus and Siege Optimus Prime.

    Yes and there's a slightly larger version in G2 colours. It's a shame whoever made him didn't make the other Special Teams. I'd have loved the Stunticons and Protectobots upscaled like that.

    The chrome on the Bruticus armour is nice. They also gave the torso plate 3 removable landing gears to make it a drone when not combined.

    The dog head insignia is cool too.

    Totally respect that. Car Robots was what got me back into collecting modern TFs. I loved the mix of old toys with new.

    Both knees have cracks where the ball joins connect. :T
