Combined Mode: Bruticus is pretty darn awesome.  He was always one of my favorite combiners because I loved the military vehicles.  He’s had more iterations, not just numerous G1 mold re-releases, but new versions than any other G1 combiner.  They did a really nice job on his chest and waste plate, and I heard that the second wave of these to be in cases with Skylynx will have olive green armor like the cartoon, but I doubt it will be remolded.  I love the head sculpt.  It’s a perfect Bruticus head.  My only complaint, similar to Onslaught, is that to give him the guns on his back, he doesn’t have any weapon other than the weapons for Blast Off and Vortex.  Yes, I know I put Swindle’s gun on upside down.

Overall: Do I really have to say it?  This one is a must.  True, Hasbro’s failure to make a new mold or significant remold for Blast Off does suck, but it doesn’t take away from the overall.  I just wish I didn’t have to buy the Japanese version to get the real Blast Off.  Unlike Defensor, where it is a debatable point whether the USA or Japanese versions are better, the Japanese version of Bruticus will be far superior.

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
