As always thanks to the source for sending out the new Bruticus wave once it came in stock. I didn't pick up the sdcc version of these guys since the prices are simply crazy right now at over $300 for the whole set. But for a 1/3 of the price that set is going for you can get these guys and still merge them together. Best part is you can swap limbs for the 1st time since the times of G1 do we finally have a scramble city style combiner. Of course there will be 4 times when these molds will be released between the sdcc, the retail version, the G2 color on amazon and the retool and re-deco into the wreckers which will make Ruination. You can get the Ruination mode out of him by simply changing out Blastoff and Vortex and making them legs and make Swindle and Brawl into arms. The best part being there are no extra pieces like there were in the G1 days to have in a plastic bag or on hand when you wanted to change things out. Hopefully Hasbro releases some more combiners. Would love to see an updated version of Superion or Defensor and not have them be repaints of earlier figures. All together i would say that this version of Bruticus will appeal to the kids more than collectors with the bright colors. I would still recommend picking these guys up since we finally have a decent combiner in about 6 yrs.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
C9 Box Description
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
