    So, looking very closely at the BBTS close-up chest images, it looks like the toon-accurate chest piece might simply clip over the existing one, like Superitron's does. If that's the case, it's good news for folks who got an earlier Bruticon version, as I'd imagine Zeta will make that piece available separately. Maybe not though, they didn't with the Superitron chest. Hmm. Although there were two different Bruticon releases before now, so there's probably more of a market for the show accurate chest than there is for Superitron's, especially since the toy and toon versions of Superion's chest aren't all that different looking, unlike Bruticus.

    I dont think the metal chest can go over the existing one like the way they did Superitron because those vertical wings that stick up or out rather, come out as far as the rise in the center part. On the metal chest everything away from the center is at a lower level and looking at them side by side it doesn't look like the metal piece sticks out nearly enough to cover all that. There also looks to be depressions in the metal ones center that would interfere with the original. It would be great if it was a stick/clip on like Superitron and would also be available separately but I'm not seeing it.

    I think you're right, thanks for the close-up pics. I hope Zeta makes these pants available as stand-alone pieces for those of us who already bought into one of the earlier iterations of this combiner. But I'm lightweight thinking about snagging this for myself anyway. I preferred the V1 Armageddon and its toy colors to the V1 and V1 metallic Bruticon, but I definitely like this version better than Armageddon. The darker greys make it look far less boring, and that chest plate looks great.

    That's definitely flush.

    The chest unscrews, I've done it to replace mine with the 3d one from @TigerBlade, so all they've done is mould a new piece and screwed that in instead

    Has anyone done a custom back piece with the 3 buttons that can deactivate Bruticus?

    Iā€™m glad I waited all these years as this version blows the others away (although I do love the toy-version chestplate and hope they include it).

    Bruticus is my second favorite combiner (after Devy and yes I absolutely LOVE Constructor) and while the individual bots are lacking, this combined mode is incredible.

    In anticipation of this new addition to the collection, I was motivated to finally move my MPs from a 4ā€™ cabinet to a 5ā€™ so as to better accommodate the combiners and Bruticon when he arrives.

    So still no word if the new one will come with one? FOMO starting to creep up.

    Actually the description has been updated on ShowZ's website that confirms the reissue comes with the toon head. That's money saved! I know it wasn't stated at first but with how the combiners have been packaged as of late it was looking like it would include everything so I was confident to roll the dice on not buying the head separate.
