Dirge's review says it's OK:

This one went last night for cheap:

But it's unknown if it's complete.

Personally, I wouldn't buy him. There are much cooler newish combiners than him (RID Railracer or Ruination come to mind :)).

Ohh who won it. *hehe*

Paid yesterday and seller sent it this morning to me.
Seller found the connecting piece for the weapons hence the only incomplete part from what i can see are the 2 energon stars. seller also sent it with the instructions.

lcz, I'm actually after one mini-part of windrazor/treadshot hence will be willing to sell it off at the price i won for...PM if interested

Dibs if he doesn't want it

ADDENDUM:

From an articulation perspective, JRX (Railracer) does indeed rule, but if Ruination is what I think it is (redeco'd Bruticus?), articulation ain't it's forté.

I have both gestalts & for their imposing-factor alone, they totally kick ar#e! :D

I agree. I'm a huge fan of Bruticus too, but LCZ wants articulation.

If you want Articulation, JRX is hard to pass up. I'd recommend him over the US version (Railracer), since Hasbro screwed up the missiles in the US release. JRX isn't too hard to find (liqdeal on eBay has the set).

FWIW, I'd easily recommend Bruticus over Superion.

Out of the three Energon Getsalts, Superion Maximus doesn't the best combined form, but I like each of the individual three toys a lot )whereas the other two both have better combined modes but one toy I don't like that much).

In that case, lcz128 hunt down a Railracer/JRX - You won't be disappointed! :)

Can anyone elaborate on the differences between Energon vs. Superlink with regards to Superion and Bruticus?

Colours, basically. I believe the SL set is simply closer to G1 Bruticus.

dirge

The biggest difference - the SL set has two green tanks - the yellow one from the Hasbro line up is a metallic kiwi fruit sort of green, rather than that odd tennis ball yellow.

I like Superion Maximus. He's my recommendation. JRX is great too down the line.

Could not agree more.

Bruticus Maximus is the only Energon Combiner I bothered with though.

My Superlink Bruticus Maximus rocked up this morning and I'm in love. :D

I think he looks just plain awesome.

That's paradoxical.

Australia Post can be like that. It took 6 days for a parcel from Thanatos to arrive here (Brisbane-Sydney).
