    Thanks. These don't seem to work. Unless I'm putting them in wrong. Also where is the button to activate the lights?

    There is no button: you have to press down on his head.

    So I got my Probus today. Really excited to play with him more. Unfortunately I’ve had a fracture recently so I can’t do much. This was the best I could do with one hand.

    but a bit disappointed that his little antenna things were immensely bent. Would’ve liked them to be hard plastic like Onslaught’s rear view mirrors.

    Just make sure the bend is angled towards the rear. Then Brawl can be one of the "cool" Leopard tanks who have them tied back:

    Or you could have him be a Canadian:

    I ended up leaving the antenna off altogether because it got really annoying with how they directly conflicted with the back canons. Impossible to rotate the turret with them attached without them being constantly flexed and I do worry despite them being a bit rubbery excess bending will snap them.

    It's a case of imo, that realistic detail shouldn't be there because it smacks up against a toy being fun and better to handle.

    Same. I took mine off as well, mainly for the sake of them being little tiny thin pieces that i'd of course rather not break, haha.

    Exactly. Don't neuter Brawl by "snipping them off". :p 

    (I never, ever use the back cannons----they're frankly too cartoony to put on an otherwise super-realistic tank)

    (I really wish there was a cannon-less rear deck/engine cover though----I tried to remove the cannons but they appear glued on, no way to have just the engine cover attached to cover the hole)

    Yeah, that's quite unfortunate, that's why I leave the dual grey cannons back there to fill the engine area and pretend Brawl is part guepard, part leopard.

    Hah thanks for that. Makes me feel a lot better.
    I might also do that tbh. I can’t wait to make a proper decision when I’ve recovered.

    Anybody know what this and the kit cost before the figures were marked up? Do you guys think a G2 set would cost the same or more?

    100 for Swindle and Vortex
    160 for Onslaught
    55 for the kit
    105 for Blast Off
    110 for Brawl

    For the whole thing, about 630 I'd say.

    @jimoinj123 I've seen at least one report that the metal tabs are "too close to the sides of the head", and need to be bent a little to reach towards the center more, to hold and make better contact with the batteries.

    You know despite having a gorgeous red version of him on the way next year I still kinda want to get a second regular Fraudo. Also noticed HR updated the official pics with some nice new photos of him since his re-run is out now.

    G2 Onslaught has a black head. Could I get just the head somehow?

    I really hope it's G2. Looks like the "Swindle" from Battle Gaia was red too.
