Amazon Exclusives Pre-Order Up Now!

July 13th, 2012

Happy Friday the 13th! You might think you will be plagued by some bad luck and run into some freaky stuff, but the only horrors you can potentially experience today is if you don’t act quickly on these Amazon Exclusive TFs, and they run out!

G2 Bruticus

First up is a G2 redeco of the upcoming Fall of Cybertron Bruticus figure. This team of 5 Combatcions combines to form the mighty Bruticus.

Apparently there are three versions of this set. There is the standard mass retail set that I covered in this post. Then there is the San Diego Comic Con Exclusive G1 colored set. Now Amazon is offering a G2 colored set. Hasbro sure knows how to milk it. Long time readers know that I have repeatedly mentioned that the Combaticons are my favorite combiner group, both in this post and in this post. And for that reason alone, I’ll probably buy all 3 sets. Will Hasbro put out a 4th redeco? Wouldn’t surprise me.

Click here to order your G2 Bruticus from Amazon. Pre-order went up last Friday morning, then it stopped after a few hours. It finally went up again yesterday, which is when I got mine. Gets yours while they last!

Optimus Prime Jetwing Movie Deco

This is a redeco of a Optimus Prime figure that was previously only available in Japan. I think MSRP of the Japanese version was something in the range of $250. I thought of buying it then, but the price was too much of a turnoff. Glad I waited, since this is like half as cheap!

Many fans consider the Japanese version of this to be the best transformable Movie Optimus Prime figure made. I think the base figure is from the ROTF leader mold, but it’s modified slightly to accommodate the Jetwing. This redeco does look a little different from the Japanese version. Personally, I like the G1 blue stripes on the wings, but not sure if I’m feeling the gold and blue on the Jetwing guns. Still, the only other Jetwing OP I have is a tiny commander-sized figure. So I don’t mind finally getting a leader-sized one.

Get the Amazon Jetwing Optimus Prime here.

Get yours now before they’re gone! Transform and Roll Out!

    Just pre-ordered the G2 Bruticus, that was a definite buy for me, especially after seeing that gorgeous box art. The Jetwing Prime I am still on the fence about though, I have the ROTF Prime and I don’t know if this one is different enough to warrant another purchase. Plus, I’m not a huge fan of the movies anyway.

    But that Bruticus is pure love.

      Agreed. For the first time in a long time, Hasbro is giving us a true combiner. The Amazon G2 version is also a great deal at $60. Like I said in the post, I’m not too happy about the color of the guns for Jetwing Prime. I like the G1 stripes, but I wish the guns are colored like the Japanese version (all grey). I may cancel the pre-order, but knowing me I’ll probably keep it 🙂

    As much as I love the G2 set and its box – I’ve preordered the SDCC G1 Colors and I’ll probably pick up the regular set in case there’s some 3rd party Support for it. I Heart Bruticus so much!

      What I’m going to do is mix and match from the different sets to form the ultimate G1 color Bruticus. For Vortex, the G2 fig most G1 to me. And for Onslaught, the standard fig looks most G1. The rest I’ll take from the G1 set.

    That’s a good idea HP! The initial order I put in for the SDCC set was cancelled, I guess the guy didn’t get it, so I re-ordered today from a dealer who for sure had several on hand. I hope it ships today so I get him in before Friday. Can’t wait!

      Dude, I’m jealous! You’re getting one already. I’m watching HTS.com to see if they will put it up, but so far they haven’t. You gotta post Bruticus on your blog when you get him!

        Oh, don’t worry HP, I will, I will. I can’t wait. According to the Tracking Number he left San Diego at 1:00am this morning. Hopefully that means he’ll be here on Thursday or at the latest, Friday.
