I couldn't find that.
That's the Wukong one.
yeah! that's the one.
it's way cheaper on Sirtoys.
Combaticons Diecast Bruticus - Combiner - SirToys.com
i keep looking at it.. but with the new Bruticus on the way from Unique Toys, i think i'll be happy with just the one
so i won this set for $200 and realize that now i have 4 Bruticus, FP, Warbo, FoC(MT), and CW(DW)
That's the simplified one. This is the wukong.. it's basically a warbo replica
Still..go with jinbao. I've had both, and sold warbo a while back.
Finally able to transform and take the following pictures. I call these guys the first set of Decepticon triplets! Why? Aside from Devastator being introduced in the last episode of season 1, these guys basically dominated the combiner episodes of season 2. And all three have earth vehicle modes, unlike the latter three that are all creatures. I'm also amused that each of these guys is the first combiner attempt by the three different iterations of what is basically the same company: Warbotron/Generation Toy/TransForm Mission.
I tried to capture Bruticus in a brutish-looking stance. He is the best combiner of the three, though the Combaticons are the weakest, especially Onslaught. Alt modes are okay.
how do you make him stand as tall as the bruticus? and what have u done with those side bits on the legs? they annoy me as his legs are too fat.
That's probably the oversized KO of Feral rex, and their arms fold and peg in around the back in leg mode.
Some recent pics of them in the mix.
Nope! But I totally see how these might be confused for the ko oversize versions. both were the official versions of these releases when I posted this years ago.( has to be at least 2-3 years I think. Maybe I'm wrong) all I did was extend Rex to his fullest height and then I hated his bell bottom looking feet so for combined mode I actually just removed the side legs to bovis and fortis so Rex doesn't have as much as a A-stance. And lastly if you look carefully the head isn't sittin completely down on Rex, I just raised the head a little as much as I could without destroying the sculpt. Loved both sets when I had them at the time! Great figures
These guys ended up being my first foray into 3p and while later offerings have refined their craft with people going to GT/TFM, I am still fond of these guys. Their Swindle is probably my single favorite individual figure of the bunch. (Dat smirk.)
I've got both the complete Warbotron set and the Jinbao set. I personally like the Warbotron set a bit better. They feel a little more sturdy, whereas the Jinbao has a cheaper, lighter feel to them despite being bigger. I also like the light piping in the Warbotron Combaticon's eyes, the Jinbao set doesn't seem to have much, if any, of that. If you like light piping like I do, that's a plus for the Warbotron set. However, they're both nice sets.
Is Bruticus meant to be the same size as Devy?
I don’t know if “meant” is the right word for it.
But usually, when Combiners fought in season 2, they appeared evenly matched, size-wise.
That pattern has led many fans (including myself) to want all their Combiners to be the same size (which can make things messy when looking at alt modes or the Sunbow chart).
selling one of these in the BST section 215 shipped
Original Authentic Warbotron WB01 Set of 5 Transformers Bruticus Combaticons
It depends much on personal preferences too, I mean, in real life, military vehicles are bigger than normal cars (and specially an space shuttle that is huge) but construction vehicles are bigger too and with Devastator they was 6 components so, you could say they can be same scale been a little permissive with real life scale (space shuttle, hehe). In G1 animation, all they was same size, even the ones made by animals, like Predaking, only Omega Supreme was bigger.
For me, I like Devastator and Bruticus same size, Menasor just a little small (just a hair) and the rest smaller than Menasor (not much) and for Autobots, Superion as the taller one and Computron and Defensor as Menasor size, just my personal preference.
Because the shoulder width was narrow, petit remodeling.
So this set is 200 including X-ray at bbts so I picked one up, not blast off was missing one of the handles on his missle pod but seems like a solid set.
It really is a great set in my opinion. It’s a very stylized take on the Bruticus but when combined they are just awesome together. The bots aren’t that bad either. If you just got the x-ray set I strongly recommend you read the thread on it because it’s very easy to break trying to install the legs and hips. Just hate to see you buy that and it breaks on you because the tolerances are bad. The set is kind of like constructor So you need to give it a very thorough once over to make sure everything is there.
$200 for the whole set the set is a screaming deal in my opinion
The Jinbao OS KO set is great too. "Ratched" up a notch.
