    Great because PCCs were awesome! Those were one of the most underappreciated perfectly good toys ever. And this (seems to) fix my complaints about them: elbow articulation and transforming limbs.

    So which color scheme is it? FOC or this oblique reference to Energon?

    interesting choice of colors, to look like Energon Bruticus, but i really hope those aren't the final colors... I know the rep said they're not, but things also change... however, if these colors are for a repaint down the line, i'd probably buy that too...

    Yeah, they said that... then they had two separate reveals of the new color scheme, including this apparently touched up shot.

    And it's not like it's random colors, those are precisely Energon Bruticus' colors. If they're not producing it in that colors, why would they even go through the trouble of that? I don't get it...

    If they are actually those colors me too, if there is a set where they are the colors from the game, I'll need two sets, one for robot mode, one for vehicle mode, but none for combined mode.

    I am probably going to buy this, but kitbash it into someone else. The bar has already been set by fansproject bruticus, and the bar is high as hell:

    So, he's an Ape-ish Goalie? Excitement level has dropped significantly.

    I think that Onslaught should have been a voyager sized figure like the original to keep the combiner form more in proportion.

    Folks complaining about one arm... you DO know it's been confirmed that he's Scramble City style right? That means any of the limbs can become an arm. If you really don't like Blast Off (I still think he's simply transformed wrong) you can just have Brawl or Swindle be that arm instead.


    -ZacWilliam, Bruticus really is downright amazing imo. Can not wait. :)

    well, Onslaught will probably end up being suddenly canceled, anyhow.

    Oh so wack....
    Hasbro, Energon called. They want their lame combiners back. I dont think even 3rd party add-ons could save this.
