    one of mine were reversed,so I had to disassemble and fix the direction, but the feet definitely have tilts. Unless they changed something.

    I scrolled back a few pages I can see they are supposed to move - I guess Mine are stuck like the shoulders - I guess I need to get the screw driver out then.

    A fan mode is any transformation/configuration not officially laid out in the instructions.

    In this particular case it's more accurate to call it a 'mod' (modification).

    I'll forever be in an awe with this Jinbao Bruticus guys. Pure awesomeness! I can't believe I waited so long to catch 'em. I love how Bruticus perfectly scales with Jujiang Superion and CW Devastator.

    I'm now selling my Machine Boy Bruticus.

    That said the other bots and Bruticus ain’t too shabby either.

    not sure if anyone else has this issue, but my bruticus's hips can barely support his weight (front to back). they are perfectly strong outwards, but forward and back the legs are loosy goosy. Is there a way to tighten the ratchet joint in the hips?

    Future shine floor polish is your friend for loose friction joints, but for ratchets:
    stretching a spring or adding more resistance for the plastic hinge is the solution for making ratchets stringer.

    I got the same problem. The ratchet teeth are probably too small and too widely spaced. I'll open up Onslaught one of the days to check out what I can do.

    I'm hoping to run across a Jin Bao OS KO version/set of this Bruticus, for a good deal, at the SAME time I have the extra money to grab him up. This morning I was able to score the Jiujiang Superion on sale at $109, which worked out NICELY, having JUST last night sold a couple of my prints for $100. The funny part is that only the day or so before, I was thinking how I'd really like to have that set, and be able to get it at a really good price. Then....BOOM! TF-Source sale... and it was STILL on and available this a.m., so I picked it up.

    As for Jin Bao, I also have their awesome OS Feral Rex , and about to order Reprolabels for that set, to spruce it up even more. I do need to check into labels for the Superion AND this OS Bruticus too, because that would be a nice upgrade.
