Picked up this guy in the Scottish lot. Onslaught had a broken shoulder, and Swindle was missing. I think a couple combiner parts were also missing. Overall, I think he was my cheapest combiner, coming in at $55. Other than the broken shoulder on Onslaught, everything was in pretty immaculate shape. But labels had never been applied, so I got some repros to make him look nice and spiffy.
First up, Brawl. His tank mode is really well done, and bot mode suffers little from kibble. As far as combiner limbs go, he's got a pretty decent bot mode
Next up, we have Swindle, he's about the most characterized of any combiner limb, making him a fan favorite for years.
His bot mode is lacking. I would probably rate his toy as my least favorite of the combaticons. The head sculpt though, I really like with the huge purple eyes.
Thirdly, Vortex. This figure is a pain. The head is extremely fragile, and can snap off just from transformation. Try to get a more played with piece for him, the looser the shoulders are the better. (not the ball joints, the slide ones)
His bot mode is pretty well proportioned though, and I love the colours.
Lastly for limb bots, my personal favorite of the group: Blast Off. I think it's because I like shuttles so much.
His bot mode is blocky, but I like it.
Onslaught's truck mode can carry either of the fliers behind the double cannons. It's quite long
His bot mode is pretty good, it is kind of confusing why he has a separate chest plate that adds on though.
He also has a ramp mode that can attach to either Trypticon or Metroplex.
The team looks pretty well rounded besides the regular complaints of the scale of the alt modes.
Finally combined into Bruticus. He's a pretty solid looking combiner.
To top it all off, a pic with some other Brutici. The WST one was a custom made from the Ruination coloured KO. It recently got sold off with the rest of my WST collection.
