    I was so happy with Impetus that I decided to get either Incursus or Volatus next. I'm leaning towards Incursus though due to the awesome size and great looking robot mode. I think I'm going down the path of getting all of them eventually...lol

    All done. Not impressed with Vortex's engineering. Lost a window cover and eventually pulled his head off and threw it in a drawer as it wouldn't stay pegged in. Easily the weakest of the 4 I've got.

    That said the other 3 limbs are really good, throw in Zeta Onslaught, some paint and some 3d printed parts from @ramsesiden and this is as good as you can get for cartoon Combaticons in all 3 modes:

    I was able to get my Assaultus to hold NewAge Cyclops and it looks pretty sweet, but the grip is pretty precarious and I can almost see the arm trembling so it's not a long term pose. But hey, photos are forever at least.
    This is even using just the stock shoulder ratchets from my first run Incursus which is impressive.

    How did you take apart Bruticon's legs like that? I plan on doing some paint work to mine as well and this will save me a lot of masking tape lol

    Just unscrew the back and prise apart bud. Just be mindful of the ratchets/spring in each knee if you're stripping them right back.

    Are there any indications that MMC will at some point deliver an All-Built-In Menasor and Superion?

    I have this & the upcoming Defensor preordered. LOVE both and wondering if we know what might be next. If anyone can do it, these guys can :)

    I remember them saying if they were going to do Menasor, it would be the toy or the Studio OX version and not the toon version.

    But currently no actual plans are in place for either.

    Hey does anyone got a photo of Assaultus next to Jinbao Devy with Upgrade kit? I want to compare the height.
    I thought they aren't gonna do Menasor because of the oversaturated market of Menasor? That's why they are doing Protectobots first.
    I'd like them to tackle all built-in Menasor, that would be cool.

    My Kingdom for a toy-ish Menasor. (I am fine with like how FP did it---I don't need to cars to be ALL of the limb mass, but they should be the majority, and not "just decorations stuck on grey box-limbs")

    (Honestly I'd like a toon/toy hybrid most of all, but every attempt I see gets the mix backwards IMHO)

    I was about to suggest TFsource in that case---but they're sold out now. Guess someone else was willing to pay 250% MSRP first.

    That's one of the few Menasor designs I actually like, so I miiiiiight get that depending on my financial situation at the time.
