I'm actually liking Bruticus (even though Blast Off's a tank and Swindle's a copter ). The deco is a lot nicer than the Energon version.

(And the 'brawl' = 1MJ9 printed on Brawl... Cheesy but nice touch! )

I really think the Superion Maximus is a total dogs-dinner of a gestalt though, and I doubt any redeco will be able to significantly improve on it. But, that's just my opinion.

At the end of the day, though, you have to tip your hats to Hasbro for repainting the Energon gestalts the way fans always wanted them!

I don't get the 1MJ9 bit... What does it mean?

Oh, and since there's a brown tank, I'd use that for Swindle. And Blast off could use one of the helicopters, while Vortex is the othe. Easy.

And thank Goodness there's no maximus suffix after superion anymore. If only bruticus was that lucky...

The 1MJ9 bit is a take on the old calculator 5318008 trick, but to saw 'brwl' (presumably short for 'brawl'). Turn them upside down.

And, yeah, those were my thoughts on Swindle and Blast Off as well, until I thought that, actually, Blast Off ain't a bad name for a tank.

Yeah. Methinks Swindle and Blast Off got their names and paintjobs switched. Poor Blast Off too. First toy in years, and ack.

Nice photos. I actually like the decos on these guys too. I originally wasn't thinking of picking him up since I already have Ultra Onslaught and Movie Brawl, but the deco on Onslaught is different enough so I can just claim him as someone else and get the set. Very nice!

Hmmm, interesting. I would have pegged them as Wal-Mart exclusives. Oh well. Now I'll just need to scour the local Targets to find Superion. The one that's literally 2 minutes from my house is never restocked quickly.

Well that means they'll be exclusive to Zellers here in Canada. At least now I know where to look for them once they're out.

Go for the name "Mega-Octane"- The name I'd hoped Hasbro would use for "Tankor".

Good call on Mega-Octane, but I use Octane for Tankor. I don't want it to be like a Mario & Super Mario type thing. Hmmm... pondering. Or maybe I'm just trying to justify why I need to by that set...
