    It’s all good I expected about that much given all that’s happened, and I’m more than happy to wait. I just went through all the modes of the three members yesterday and it was so fun to just do it and move through all the great design.

    Oh my word, just opened my Impetus today and it's just pure awesome.

    I got Fraudo and Incursus first but this one has got to be my favourite, just love everything about it.

    Bring on Blast off and Brawl!

    Just didn't expect to be enjoying this set so much, just feels so great to handle and play with.

    Oh it’s a whole new face!? Looks even better. More of a properly Swindle smirk than a cheery open mouth.

    So will those that already own this figure be able to purchase the head by itself? Perhaps packed into one of the unreleased figures coming soon?

    There’s been no word on a singular head release, only that it will come with the final member of the team being Brawl.

    I\'ll be honest, im not digging Impetus as much as im digging Fraudo. impetus has a right arm issue (unless im doing it wrong) where it can only rotate inward due to design and I wish they would send a replacement piece (doubt it). What is this im hearing about an extra head for a previous figure coming with Probus? please say its a fix to the impetus head/neck. The constant popping out drives me nuts and I know im not the only one.

    Ordered Swindle off of eBay, had a bit of lockdown frustration and so ordered Vortex as well, and then a week later paniced and also ordered Incursus from TFSafari. And Incursus arrived first! 8 days from ordering to arriving at my door in Glasgow. Pretty good service there.

    I do have one question which might have already been answered and if so, sorry... I got the version that came packaged in robot mode. Except that the head and chest were in Bruticus mode. Is that how he normally comes? I can't see anything else odd with him yet and everything else looks okay. Box is a touch damaged but I kinda expect that when ordering from China (it looks midly like it might have been unpackaged and repackaged... the tape at the top of the box had been cut).

    Welcome aboard LiamK. You might consider getting the Assaultus upgrade kit for an alternative look to the big guy? Yes, Incursus does come with the head and chest in Bruticus mode for whatever reason. Can't explain the tape being cut, it should be taped top and bottom...

    Yes that’s how he’s designed to be packaged in the alternate box distribution.

    That's cool. Cheers. I'm hoping I enjoy this guy. I often end up liking the concept of combiners more than the actual figures, especially as I like actually fiddling with them. I liked Warbotron's take at first but their Onslaught kinda put me off the whole thing. I've got Feral Rex and he's cool but just a touch too unstable and unweildy in combined mode. The two figures I honestly get the most enjoyment out of is probably Unte Warriors Devestator and MakeToys Quantron. Although I did always use to love JRX from back in the Car Robot days.

    Anyway, Incursus is looking good so far. As others have said his odd proportions are a lot less noticable in hand. The arm configuration is mildly annoying (you can either have the arms go flat against the side, or be able to turn the bicep, but not both), but apart from that niggle he's solid, posable, and with lots of nice touches (the adjustalbe back cannons, for example). I'm happy so far.

    As to the upgrade kit... to be honest I prefer the toy look to Bruticus. And I like the concept of the all in one gimmick. I might change my mind though when more figures arrive.
