The five Combaticons alone are enough to give pause to even the mightiest Autobot force. When they combine into Decepticon Bruticus, they become the stuff of nightmares. He easily destroys his enemies with ultrasonic waves or a smack from his massive hands. Once he has begun on a path of destruction, no force in the known universe can stop him. These 5 Decepticon warriors are big trouble for the Autobots all by themselves, but when they combine into one giant Decepticon Bruticus warrior, it’s a whole new war! Your Blast Off, Decepticon Brawl, Onslaught, Swindle and Vortex figures come fully armed, and they can convert to vehicle mode and back whenever the battle calls for it. But when they want to bring overwhelming force against their Autobot enemies, they can combine together into a huge Decepticon Bruticus figure! Their weapons combine into an enormous sonic cannon for this mighty villain! Take your Transformers adventures to the next level with this awesome Decepticon Bruticus Combiner Set!

    Some of my favorite Transformers have been the combiners (Devastator(G1), Superion Maximus, Bruticus maximus to name a few) but there have always been a problem with them. The biggest, especially with all the G1 combiners, was the fact that you needed accessories to complete the combination. Accessories that had no other purpose in any other mode. Then the “maximus” versions finally had those accessories useable in the other forms (though they made poor hands and feet for the combined mode – as well as odd looking accessories for the individuals – but still they were usable in all modes).
    So now we finally get one has decent – built in hands and accessories that look decent on all modes!
    Also – a big plus for me, is the the connecting joints are much more secure than pervious combiners – even the “maximus” ones.
    And finally the last big plus for me is that all the individual robots are the same size with each other. That is something that always drove me crazy in every other combiner (except Devastator). One really big robot and four really small ones. I love the fact that they are all the same size.

    Unfortunatel, there are some problems as well.
    For instance:
    - Onslaught’s vechicle mode is underwhelming and does not hold together well (at least mine does not).
    - The arms seem a bit “gangly”.
    - the completely combined gun gives him a lopsided look.
    - the figures feel a little lightweight – even for the new “Fall of Cybertron” figures.

    Now that they have the basic process down, I think they just need to refine it with (hopefully) future combiners.

    Overall, the pluses outweigh the negatives and this, for the most part, is a 4 star Transformer.
    So why only 3 stars?
    The color.
    The G2 colors are certainly better that the neon-like coloring of the individually packages combaticons, but it is nowhere near as good as the official “Fall of Cybertron” version. Unfortunately I can’t afford that version. (I wouldn’t have been able to afford this version either if I didn’t order it last week, when it was $40 cheaper.)

    Overall Bruticus isn’t poorly made, but there was definitely room for improvement. As with most of the transformers that have a mode beyond robot and vehicle/animal/whatever one or more of the modes look awkward. Blast-off’s head is clearly visible when he forms the arm, Brawl’s robot mode feels lanky for a tank, and Onslaught’s weapon is meant to cover Bruticus’s back and leaves an open space if its used in the “sonic cannon” weapon mode. The individual figures feel a bit light compared to others, but not fragile. The arms make Bruticus top-heavy so posing is a bit difficult, but there are several joints, including a waist joint, so not impossible. The set came with individual instructions for each figure that showed robot to vehicle and back along with appendage to vehicle, but not how to change to appendage mode. While not really deterimental to the figure the appendages are not intercahngible as the original’s were since the hands are built into Blast-off and Vortex.
    I wouldn’t recommend Bruticus for a casual buyer, but its a nice part of a giant combining robot collection.

    *Edit* Both Brawl and Swindle also have built in hands so they can form the arms, but I haven’t been able to find a way to transform Brawl in a way that is not awkward nor was I able to find a way to make Blast-off and Vortex the same height so they could form the legs without it being unstable.

    Ok this version of Bruticus is a bit on the colourful side but he is considerably better looking in person. I always loved the combaticons and Bruticus and I wanted the SDCC version but I just couldn’t afford it. This version is a good second choice, its a good toy at a better price I recommend it. And as a collector Bruticus washed that bad power core combiner taste out of my mouth . . . . . . . .YUK!
