    I’ve tried going through the thread. Does anybody have a TLDR on every that was improved in this version from original? I mean objectively. Not toon vs. toy.

    If we are talking about the differences between Armageddon and Bruticon, beyond different colors, the knee joint that connects to Swindle is sturdier (though not by much, it still comes loose too easily), and they added a toon accurate head. That's it, really.

    The only thing stopping me from buying this (specifically the die-cast chest version) is the dead colourless eyes. Anyone got a solid / reliable method (which paint) for painting the eyes down pact yet?

    I would assume it’s as easy as unscrewing the head and taking out the clear piece that makes up the eyes.

    Yeah, I don’t have this one yet, but I painted Superitron’s eyes and almost all heads that take batteries can open up with the eyes as a separate piece that can be painted.

    So if anyone is still interested in the toy colours:
    ZA-08 Armageddon

    I find it funny the toon coloured one is advertised with the toy head and the toy colours with the toon head.

    Finally! I've always have preferred the toy color and have been waiting for a rerelease of them.

    Toy colours? Have the wrong chest plate coloured like the old right one. I swear, at this point they're trolling everyone.

    If anyone in the UK gets that toy coloured version and wants the correct toy chest plate from the original in a straight swap with the grey cartoon chestplate. Message me.

    Do either of the 2 current sets come with the original chest as well or just the new chest plate? Accurate or not, I like the other one better.

    It’s a remold of a part that can’t be swapped out so nope. That’s why the re-run of the toy colors is using the new chest. They remolded it and aren’t using the old chest anymore.

    I actually like the toy colours more than the toon colours, but it looks so odd with that toonstyle chest. :confused:

    Eventually they absolutely HAVE TO sell all these damn parts as add-ons. I ended up with both sets of thighs, mixing drums and heads for Constructor and it’s great to be able to mix and match and I’d love to be able to do this with Bruticon sometime.

    Thing is... I think it works better that way. Just looks right to me.

    I find the toy head superior in bot cases personally.

    In a perfect world it would be the MMC toy Bruticus head, as I find that one the best of the bunch.

    Anyone in the US who wants the old toy version with the toy style chest and is willing to trade for the new toon version with the toon style chest, hit me up.
