Default Takara-Tomy FOC Bruticus in game-accurate colours & Encore G2 Devastator

From TFW2005: TT to do game-accurate FoC Bruticus colours. No word yet on shiny bits.
Good news for those who missed out on the SDCC set.

I'll be passing in favour of the G2 version myself.

The link also features news about a yellow Encore Devastator reissue, possibly with a new hat head.

Looks like I'm selling my G2 Bruticus I'll take expressions of interest for it when it arrives in Nov. Man, I feel sorry for anyone that forked-out for the SDCC version.

Also a very exspensive box.

I too will be sticking with the G2 version. After watching the reviews of the SDCC one the colours seem really boring, which some reviewers have commented on. G2 at least will throw a little colour around.

And what's old mate at Parra Fair gonna do now?

I lost that many auctions for the sdcc bruticus that I'm not even bothering with it until next year. This will keep me happy until I get it. I'm still waiting for a g1 colored version to be announced, we all know it's coming

This is great news! Personally I'll wait till I get my G2 version to decide whether I like the mold enough to get a second set.

I've been lucky enough to have a mate working in the states with a US credit Card who has agreed to by my plastic crack mule. I was able to order both the bruticus and cliffjumper off the hasbro Toy store for the instant it turned up and have them shipped to his place.

Now I just play the waiting game to see when this stuff actually arrives here for me. might be a while.

So I'll not be paying above comparative Aussie retail when you take the cost of shipping into account.

luckily my fancy box didn't turn out to be too expensive.
I really fell for all those people who bought the highly inflated prices from eBay.

I've got the G2 pre-ordered. I usually don't buy recolours of figures but I thought I may still get Swindle, Onslaught and Brawl as they are at least similar to their G1 colours (Purple Blast off and Brown & Red Vortex?!?!) but if they release the game accurate colours who knows, maybe I'll get the lot! Then I can have Bruticus set up and the individual combaticons as well
