Blog #337: Toy Reviews: Transformers Kre-O Micro-Changers Combiner Bruticus (Swindle, Onslaught, Vortex, Brawl)

I’ve put up reviews of all four Micro-Change Combiners, Bruticus, Devastator, Predaking, and Superion.  There are links to my other Kre-O blogs at the end of the review.

Transformers Kre-O Micro-Changers Combiner Bruticus (Swindle, Onslaught, Vortex, Brawl)

Swindle

Swindle’s vehicle mode isn’t exactly a jeep, but it’s pretty cool.  In robot mode his chest art is covered up, but there is a piece with art that goes on it.  It’s not as nice as the art beneath, but it’s decent.

Onslaught

Onslaught has one of the best vehicle modes.  He’s pretty good sized compared to most.  His robot mode is simple, lacking many parts on his back, but his art is not covered up and he looks really cool.

Vortex

I like Vortex’s robot mode.  He even has a cannon on each arm like G1.  Helicopter mode is a total fail.  They needed something different on the front instead of the head and helmet.

Brawl

Tanks are one vehicle type they have done a great job with throughout the Micro-Changer line, and Brawl is no exception.  Unfortunately, they covered up his art in robot mode.

Bruticus

These combiners are awesome.  Bruticus has his cannons on his back, and, while his right arms bears no resemblance to Blastoff, the other arms are all G1 accurate.  The only thing that is a problem, and it is on all the combiners, is the lack of real hands.  The Kreon legs aren’t awful.  You’re dealing with a limited number of parts, so I can forgive the hands.

Overall:  This is a great set, and at $10-$12, you really can’t beat the price.  It should also be noted, that Blastoff is available in the first wave of Micro-Changer blind buys to complete the team.

Here are my previous reviews of the 2011 and 2012 Kre-O sets, Micro-Changers Preview and First Series, and the Toys R Us exclusive Ironhide.  Here are links to the newest Kre-O toy reviews, Beast Blade Optimus Prime, Battle Net Bumblebee, Dragon Assault, Mech Venom Strike, and Ripclaw Strike.

Thanks for reading!
