    So I finally got around to playing around with this set from Chosen Prime.

    I'll start off by saying I had a misassembled part. The right arm joint was installed backwards so it doesn't have a natural arm movement.

    Rest of the pics speak for themselves. These are way too small to be in Combiner Wars and the huge chest piece makes it impossible to hold the rifle now in two hands.

    If I did and it wasn't actually part of the set, I've probably thrown them away accidentally -- didn't remember about that and haven't kept the box/packaging.

    From this listing I'd assume they're selling them separately:

    chimungmung Toy Shop

    And if this is what they're for, can't say I'm too fussed...

    Was Fansproject Colossus just an upgrade kit to some other Transformers.

    No, I was just wondering if Fansproject released each of these figures individually or they just released add on parts to Has/Tak stuff. I wasn't collecting Transformers when this came out and now I'm confused and this Fansproject Colossus has been old news for a while. The add on kit is for ROTF/Energon Bruticus so I don't know. I guess is this like Microblaze Military Titans and from Emgo's review it looks like it was all add on parts to Has/Tak stuff. Am I right?

    Close. It's an add-on set to an add-on set. MBC's set was just an add-on set to HasTak figures. A similar thing was done to the FP Superion upgrade kit a while back with a company called DMY. Gave the set a few new bits here and there to make it more G1-accurate (as G1-accurate as one could get with that set at least).

    Don't sweat not knowing. There's tons of this 3P stuff so it's hard to keep track of, especially when you haven't been collecting that long. Had to educate myself back when I first started and I'm sure many others have too.

    As for my thoughts, after seeing the now-missing in-hand images earlier, I'm glad I passed on this set. Brawl's upgrades in tank mode looked okay, but that was about it. Chest made him look too fat and the rest was kinda unnecessary/meh IMO.

    Weird, it showed up on other people's PCs. Anyway, I never uploaded files so bear with me.

    I will be keeping an eye out for this on clearance. I don't see this selling well and see this dropping in price drastically. So when this is around $40, I will bite. Now, there is no way in gods green earth I bite on this.

    Exactly my thought.
    I think i paid this price for the fansproject upgrades so unless they replaced figures the price they want is way too much.

    I also cannot help but think

    "Yo, I heard you like Upgrades, so we added an upgrade to your upgrade!"

    I also think I would have paid like $15 for just the brawl updates.

    Once again, if anyone is interested in this just for the brawl parts I would be willing to split at about $65 me $30 for you and I would pay shipping to my address AND shipping of the brawl parts to your address. If interested please pm me! I really want to acquire a second set of this and have no need for the brawl parts in a second set as the first one I have coming to me was a christmas present and is being used for my fp bruticus, but set #2 will not be.

    Me too - it looks ace and I'd really like to get it, but that price is just surreal.

    The high price IMO was fair for the quality of the product.
    It really completed colossus and stacks great with my other brutes.

    Compared to the MBC Titan
