    Who really knows though. They may just slide one out for singles day and let it carry through the xmas season. I think it depends more on the retailers' willingness to order them than anything else.

    Asking a favor for those who bought MS-B51C (Brawl) and own MMC Brawl: Can you show me how good the colors match up once you have it in hand, please? :D

    20240616_221809.jpg Not the closest match but they're pretty close. To my eye MMC is a lighter shade. Hopefully this works for you.

    Damn, didn't truly realize how tiny these guys are until this shot. :eek: 

    They look really cool, but I don't have any legends sized figures and don't to start a second collection, so I'll continue lurking and enjoying pictures from others. :rolleyes:

    For what it’s worth, I don’t collect Legends either, outside of the Magic Square combiners. I prefer Masterpiece for regular characters, and Legends for combiners, for both shelf/storage space and playability reasons.

    Much appreciated - I guess this will be the closest match as the other two are definitely more on the greener side.

    Thank you :)

    Looking to sell my MS Combaticons, in order to get the C versions. This is the original release, the “non-IDW” version. They are all complete with everything minus the packaging

    Well you're in luck because there's a pretty good chance Magic Square’s doing a masterpiece scaled version of Bruticus
    Magic Square MS MP Bruticus
    Not 100% confirmed but there are apparent differences in the legends Bruticus, and the Bruticus that was shown in the picture promoting the C version of Onslaught.

    'Smee again.

    I might have to do something really stupid and mix and match my MS Combaticons - I use them as Alt mode displays next to their bots (MMC in this case).

    MMC Onslaught is definitely MS-B53C's color, but my Zeta Bruticus has IDW colors. Now i'm contemplating whether to repaint MMC Onslaught in a lighter shade of blue as well as repainting Zeta Swindle and Brawl...what did i get myself into? ARGH

    Don't know if it'll help you any, but you can still buy the MS IDW version.

    Damn... the translucent window chest is a disappointment.

    Comparing the org and C.

    The black face grates me, but not as much as Onslaught's blue.

    Nice. Pretty much what I expected: deeper purple and a darker more orange-y tan. Did guess the window color wrong.

    So, who is releasing first? Swindle or Onslaught?

    Yeah, not very toon accurate. But I was expecting some kind of difference from the original release.

    I feel like this repaint is a waste of time. But really just cuz I’d rather see them pump out some new releases instead, seems like the Dinobot trickle has been slower than normal, and I’m very interested to see what’s after them. Been so slow this year for new releases from both MS and NA, or at least it feels slow to me compared to previous years.

    Tired of these boring “repaints.”

    More saturated colors than the original release, as expected.

    Now we also know the purple color we can expect on Blast-Off and on Bruticus’s chest shield.

    I’m so conflicted by these releases…
    The clear window definitely makes this a potential purchase.

    looks slightly darker than the "IDW" version. I went with alt mode pictures since the lighter color plastic behind it makes it hard to judge. I don't even care about toon accurate or not, it just looks so bad with the translucent showing the different colors behind it in bot mode.
