Finishing out our coverage of the Combiner Wars Combaticons, today we're looking at Bruticus himself! Let's see how Onslaught manages as a torso, and if the Deluxes manage to escape their individual issues and come together to make a decent combiner. Plus, does this accommodate Shockwave any better? To find out, check out our video, as well as text and photo coverage of Bruticus, all of which you can see right here!
Hot Spot was a great solo figure, and Onslaught follows after it by making a lot of Hot Spot's good points even better. Not everything is perfect, but even what isn't doesn't really hurt the toy. It's really all you could hope for from the reuse of this base mold. We've got our video review along with text and photos, so click here to check it out
and get all the details!
Scattershot almost seemed like it might be okay. Certainly flawed, but maybe not irredeemably so. However, digging just beneath the surface causes that facade of acceptability to crumble away, and shows the hidden truth. We have our video review, plus text and photos, so click here to check it out
and see how much one toy can irritate me!
The toy I can't stop calling "Ransack" if I'm not thinking about it really hard. I'm pretty sure there weren't any such slips in the review, but maybe you should check it out and let me know! Chop Shop is a nice recolor and minor remold of Skrapnel, who was already pretty great, and makes three out of four worthwhile toys from this wave. And we've got our video review, plus text and photos, so click here to see it all!
We're on a brief intermission from the Combaticons, but today's review of Shockwave kind of brings us back around to them. Being the Legends Class figure associated with the team has led to fun design directions for Shockwave which reaches well past being the partner for Bruticus. We have a video review plus text and photos, so click here to see it all!
Time Skip! The RID comic jumps forward to the end of Season One to tell a story of those left behind from the previous war... and those who would exploit them. Transformers: Robots In Disguise #5

We'll come back to finish the Combaticons very soon, but in the meantime we're looking at Buzzsaw, one of the new Legends assortment and a sneak preview figure of sorts, giving us a taste of part of the Titans Return play pattern in advance. We've got a video review, plus text and photos, so click here to check it all out!

Getaway's emotional manipulation of Tailgate comes to its crushing conclusion. This one is going to hurt, kids. "The Lopsided Triangle", written by James Roberts, art by Brendan Cahill, colors by Joana Lafuente. Continue to the review.
It's almost the end of Combaticon Awareness Week, and so we come to a close on our reviews of the Deluxe members of the team with Swindle.
