    Loving my latest shipment from sirtoys. But that bruticus is going to need A LOT of superglue and floor polish. Not much is tight.

    Based on the Iron Factory Sixshot, according to the Facebook post. Do you have these, @SirToys?

    Looks like some of the stuff that I'll be getting from Paul in a few weeks. Decided to roll the dice on that OS'd bruticus. How's the stability on it? Also, do you have any other gestalts to take a pic of it with, so I can gauge how it'd scale with other combiners?



    That box art is amazing, and then as I scrolled down, I realized I already got those figures from sirtoys... the rise :rolleyes: & fall :oops:  of excitement.

    Nice, I've been on the fence about that ratchet. Do you have any comparison pics with any recent hasbro voyager size. How is the quality? I too would want an ironhide

    Not really - but shoulder and head height is identical to Voyager TLK Optimus Prime.
    Plastic quality is good -it's glossy plastic but it's thicker than something like one of the Wei Jiang Throttlebots or Headmasters - he (usually) has a metal chest too. I'd say the plastic is similar to but better than a Hasbro 3 step changer or Batallion toy better to than FOC Grimlock.

    I have mixed feelings for that Ratchet. On the one hand, he's kind of fun. But at the same time, he's sort of too huge to really hang out with other Voyager figures... his proportions are too big and bulky (would fit Ironhide a bit better, at least). If his legs were actually in proportion to his body, he'd be as big as MP Ratchet.

    Also, he definitely feels like a cheap, junky KO to me... the finish is pretty rough (being so oversized from the original probably doesn't help), but it's still very sturdy, with firm joints. Doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart. And all the important articulation joints are there.

    So it's still cool.

    He stands eye to eye with OS Warborton.
    His stability is ok, swindle splits a little to help and you need to be particular with brawl. Everything is loose though. He gives me a zombie dark energon vibe with the hunched head so I'm thinking repainting him in silver, then a 2 tone clear purple, to give the glowing energon look then dry brushing with flat black, gun metal and chrome and washing with metalics of the boys foc colours. Will be a LOT of work for a floppy toy but he's looking a little odd in his curent deco with the others

    I'm looking to get the KO CBB G2 Bruticus set, but it's hard to figure out which listing is selling the OS version, the normal size, or just a KO vintage G2 set. Also, a bunch of listing have started posting weird non-sequitur hashtags in the titles. Any tips?

    Got MF-24 today. I was so excited until I saw the chest was cracked. Broken off the hinge. Damn.
