    The forearm transformation for Brawl is insane
    From tank tread to a flat grey arm

    Brawl changed a lot here
    He looks so much cooler now
    I think he’s my fav
    They even got the brownish color, grey forearms, and the orientation of Brawl’s leg treads in bot form correct, which is unlike UT Brawl. 0505CB8D-D3C8-487A-87EE-B51DFF80FA15.png 138A5960-35E6-4CAC-8F7F-C9C708D50A96.jpeg

    I wonder how much of it was improvement/redesign, and how much was "intentionally vague/inaccurate to throw off other companies".

    I like Brawl a lot, too. I think MMC should have made his turret smaller since it doesn't serve any transformation purpose and looks too large in alt and bot mode. I worry about the connection ports with Brawl and Swindle. There doesn't seem to be much holding in the connections.

    Perhaps. But considering how far away he still is from release, what does that really buy them?

    I think it looks fine? And it already telescopes in and out.

    The more i look at this set the more i like it ..The funny thing is that they originally meant to be more Studio Ox style and now that im looking at them they look like they are the most cartoon accurate combaticons out of all 3 sets lol....My only criticism is that Vortex looks a bit too narrow in bot mode and there seems to be some weirdness in Swindles lower legs...Perhaps if the ankles were yellow instead of gray and the joint was not sitting so high...I wish he was taller in combined mode too

    I wonder if OM will tackle any other combiners aside from Bruticus. I'd buy a Devastator from them over FT because I know an OM Devvy would actually be fun to transform (going by their previous releases).

    The legs on Blastoff and Brawl look pretty bad in botmode but that seems to be the compromise that has to be made to hide combiner fists and feet inside the bot. We always knew there would be some compromises. They look like they're wearing skirts or some avante garde '70s futurist pants. Not sure I can dig that, or that it looks even as good as existing options.

    The Blast Off legs do bother me here, and wondering if it will in person too. I wanted something less chuggy, and it is vs my UT, but still, the legs are chubby ... :( 

    I cant see it for Brawl though.

    Anyways, up to now, Vortex looks the best to me.

    Are Blast-off’s legs really that thick, or is that just the wings folded up, giving the illusion of a big calf?

    I dunno, looks like the folded wings are making it look like balloon pants to me.

    The images are super grainy/compressed so it could just be the wings and if they're removable, that might help the legs look less blocky.

    I really love this project but ever since the announcement of the Fans toys combiner having the ability to pull off both the Cartoon and Studio OX looks, I really think they need to come up with a why to give people both Bruticus chest plates.

    I find myself complete torn on how I want my Bruticus to look

    Is it okay if Brut is a few inches shorter than the other combiners?

    getting more and more tempted to buy these for the robot modes until someone makes a set that pleases me in robot mode and combined ( really is a big shame the combined mode is not bigger ) , they look that good and are actually a good size apart from onslaught being a bit big
