This is a great figure....as long as you don't touch it
By Brandon Dorsey on August 19, 2015
I bought this because I wanted a Bruticus that was faithful to his WFC appearance, and in that respect this guy gets a thumbs up. Bruticus looks great and is a truly imposing figure....as long as he is not in any kind of pose other than standing straight up. I don't know if this is across the board, but if mine isn't balanced just so, he will fall backwards.
I also wanted an Onslaught that was faithful to his WFC appearance, and again, he gets a thumbs up and is light years beyond the look of the Hasbro release...provided he is not in any position other than standing straight up. His arms are basically limited to movement at the elbows, as any movement at the shoulders will cause the connection to the body to come loose. The legs also have bad connections near the knees that do not snap together securely.
The extra accessories that come with him are great in that provide improvements to (specifically, Swindle and Brawl) and additional weapons for the Hasbro figures.
All in all, it is an OK figure. If the QC was better it could be a great figure.
Not as bad as I thought

This set isn't the best but is far from the worst. Personally I really enjoy it. The "Onslaught" figure is massively beefy and articulates pretty well. The add on parts for Brawl are amazing and really help bring the very dull figure to life. Swindles new head rocks and the weapons for Vortex and Blast off are nice touch (also helping form the arms for Bruticus). The combined mode is where all the love is. Bruticus stands with a titanic presence and scales well with the other FOC figures.
However all these things aside, there are a couple gripes I do have with the "onslaught figure and Bruticus mode. Starting with Onslaught, i have heard from a couple friends who have purchased this set have some QC issues. Personally i haven't had any problems with mine and don't see any signs of problems in the future. The green shoulder pads love popping off or flapping down when posing the figure. The Bruticus figure also doesn't like posing much without slideing around or falling over. His knees will unseat themselves from time to time and his shoulder junk gets in the way of this spikey cheat piece. All minor gripes that I can easily overlook tho.
All around decent set but a little pricey. I do recommend it but be cautious and careful with the figure to prevent it from "injury". I'm happy with it and hope that you happen to get your hands on a good one such as I did. Bah Weep Granah.

i think alittle too much work for the overall product...what i mean by this is halfof the stuff wouldn't even stay together. once you do get it together it is very very nice, but if kids are playing with this they aren't going to want to spend a good 10-15 mins transforming.
Great concept but QC issues hinder it

It's a great concept but the QC issues really hinder it. Received it yesterday and broke it yesterday in the area of the knees TITAN where there is a pin hinge set up. Reason for the break is the piece where the leg connects to the crotch is reversed so when you fold them in to combine there is tension since the leg is not flush together. The clips start to show stress marks and the joint/pin when folded in per the instructions and Peaugh's review, it snapped. That part should have been a ball joint that pops out, not a hinge.
Also, in combiner mode it is wobbly on the waist as the legs (aka, Titan's arms) don't really click/connect together (they just fold in on each other) and with swindleÃ¢s flared feet attachments popping off you really have to balance the combiner.
I requested a replacement TITAN to be sent by TFSOURCE as I do like this set and adds character to the Generations figs. Lets see what happens.
Good figure, but needs a few tweaks.

I really like this figure as a show piece with the other fall of cybertron figures he looks really good. but when you are transforming him to bruticus and trying to pose him. those green shoulder flaps almost always pop out and thus his pelvis literallys splits apart, at least on mine.
Over all though he is an awesome display piece as bruticus.

An acceptable Transformer is at least structurally stable. This thing fell apart when I tried to pose its arm. I'd compare it to a loose-peg, flimsy Revenge of the Fallen Mixmaster in terms of how well it stays together. Not pleased with my purchase.
Awesome Figure, A- in the combiner department.

I will admit maybe I had different expectations in my head. Overall pleased.
- The base figure is gorgeous, paint is excellent. Fantastic articulation and design style.
- Add on parts for the various figures are quite nice as well, especially the parts for brawl to make him a more pose-able figure.
- Combiner mode.... Its not bad, but its kind of weak in the articulation on the legs. And only when it comes to swindle do the combiner mode suffer. I wish the foot build parts we more solidly interlocked then on single peg on each side. Would help them stay together.
- QC Issues. The figure in combined mode for me suffers from bad assembly or measurement of parts in 2 areas. So thats really where my 1 start is lost on this figure and part setup, along with the Swindle foot assembly.
If they fixed the two small issues the package is flawless. I have the team in Bruticus mode right now, might break them back down to individual team once a month.
Also beware you will have to do some dissection of your Vortex and Blast off to fit them onto the arm joints that transform into guns. Nothing major but you will unsnap a few joints and snap them into the points on the arms they go on.
So overall great individual figure, slightly weak in combiner mode. The voyager main body definitely add's the needed mass to Bruticus to make him feel like an imposing figure.
