    Personally I just never bothered installing the rotors. I think Bruticus and Vortex look just fine without them. Only downside is Vortex's alt mode will never look complete, but my set was always going to stay combined.

    The weight is definitely a huge concern. We just gotta hope and pray that they have godlike ratchet joints, I guess.

    Mis-transformation? Pishposh. It's all good as long as you like it. I do recommend painting the eyes red. It makes'em look less dead inside.

    My next concern if they simply did that to counter the weight would be if there is adequate material to handle the stress of moving the parts. Combiner bots being like triple changers have areas that are reduced in mass to accommodate the different transformations but have more stress to handle forming a big bot. Like Thomas and his double jointed knee that is insanely tight on one side makes the plastic flex and make some scary noises before the ratchet gives way and moves. It's a good thing that they are adjustable otherwise I think his legs would eventually break from that pressure.

    Those are the tail lights for onslaught. They should plug in vertically I believe.

    Interesting. Thanks.

    If I ever break Bruticus back down to his components, I will try and install them.

    Says the release date is December, so that's "soon".

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about. Can't wait to pair that up with DS-01.

    It's a big ass box, expect overseas shipping to be high. Very high. Or very very slow...

    Interesting. Might just hop onto this since I can finally PO a Bruticon with TCP LMAO

    Ironically enough, i'm not the biggest fan of the chest, the original Bruticon one really grew on me as of late. Similarly, i'm a bit more of a fan of the other head we had for the big guy.

    Here's to hoping maybe they're either included, sold separately or there just happens to be extras out there? Guess we'll have to see.

    But yeah i'm getting a PO in for this thing regardless, unless I can get a chance to go for the regular metallic version.

    While I’m totally fine with the version I picked up earlier this year, I hope Zeta sells the updated chest piece only (because muh options!)

    If it's anything like their superion, this new chest piece will fit over the existing chest piece and be attached using double sided tape!
