So been a minute… I had to post this because well… HAIL MEGATRON!
Dang I don’t care what the Trolls, G1Whiners, and all the other punks… He looks awesome…
Additionally… It appears Nemesis Prime gets his a** kicked by Megatron and his “Knights…” Which here at Bruticus.net we are ALL ABOUT! We just cannot wait till we get a decent preview with “Onslaught” and his “Combaticons…” Seriously we had seen pictures, but it is time to see some actual footage please?! Or like many things did we get bay-canned!?
Check out the trailer!
So while I am behind, its summer time and my kids have fully held me captive and I cannot escape. I have a few more weeks to go before the kids go back to school. After that I should hopefully have more time for Transformers related content!
With that I give you the next “Transformers Last Knight” Onslaught has been announced this last week as a new “cough” bad guy… But to me will always be awesome…
What could this mean for us? Well hopefully we will see some combiner awesome action… Considering last year and most of this year was Combiner Wars. But more than that seeing Bruticus in action destroying autobot!
Now problem is Michael Bay tends to like to kill Decepticons giving them very short lives and pretty pathetic deaths minus a few glorious battles… Hopefully he will give Onslaught the honor he deserves. As Megatron has received a fair amount of chances… Its time a real Decepticon gets the opportunity to show real power.

We finally have a “name” for the next Transformers Movie. Me personally I am not sure this is 100%. We have seen them change things up last minute and this would not be surprising if they did.
While I haven’t had much to say lately. I have been keeping my eyes open on new things. One of which is this Combiner Wars Upgrade which gives PerfectEffect a bit of a run as it is SO Much different and in my opinion better… Ignoring the head, which I can get over and even replace later… Check this thing out…
And if you preorder right now TFsource is giving an additional 10% off. ($44.99)
Some great news for the 3D Printing and Customizers! Printing has now become more affordable without dropping tons of quality and $$$! OLO is a UV 3D Printer that uses your smartphone. They say that it can use just about any phone that has a digital screen. Supporting all the way up to an iPhone6S size.
UV has always been know to be one of the better quality methods of printing as SLS and ALS tends to leave tons of impurities. IT will be interesting to get this printer in hands to see if it delivers as they say it does.
It has two modes of printing one at “quick-mode” .12mm and a .036mm.
If you compare this to “um” which average SLS and ALS do 60um. This comes in around 36um’s! While this is slightly more than Shapeways Frosted Ultra Extreme… (Theres uses a 16micron layering) which is difficult to convert and comes around .016mm of detail…) So more than half!
Either way this printer starts at $99. The liquids sound like they will be VERY competitive and come in tons of colors. This may be what I use to start prototypes and then migrate to a 3rd Party printer like Shapeways/Sculpteo…
The space this allows for is rather small, but for Transformer parts… It should be plenty! My 5MM Hands, and future 5mm feet add-ons should print nicely in this. And at the rate of “testing” taking weeks, this will take hours…
OLO has been fully funded and is nearing the 1 million dollars of funding. (They needed $80,000!)
So go check it out!
I am really not sure what other Titan you could pick out of these three… I was shocked to see a good number for Omega Supreme and Scorponok… Really? The last toy that was released that is decent was the G1 version… Oh wait that seems to be the only one…
Hands down we have Metroplex he needs his Nemesis Trypticon period…
3DPrintron has a wonderful head sculpt that they have done that is now starting to show up all over the net.
Really the only thing this head requires is a slight amount of paint and your all set. Overall there is some significant improvements giving him a bit more of an IDW look tuff guy look.

Interested in getting it? Then go to Shapways and have it printed!
If you like the more “rustic” appeal use the lower quality ABS plastic, as it is cheaper, but also will give that more dirty look as LlamaGod’s depicts. If you want a more smooth finish then you will want to go with the Frosted Extreme Detailed.
NY TFcon 2015 is off to a great start. Last night was a huge even of reveals that have yet to come across our screens. Hasbro did slowly start to introduce the idea of the upcoming “Titan Wars” during the last major reveal event. To continue in that momentum we are going into 2016 with Combiner Wars and will start to make the transition into Titan Wars. Which also happens to be similar in the Head Masters, and every other manner of talk.
What am I excited about? Well I honestly don’t care about swapping heads and blah blah blah… But what I do like about this is yet again it creates a opportunity for 3rd Party add ons. Don’t like that head? Sure heres a new one… Don’t like this part? Sure lets fix that.
Most of all Leader Class Blaster. It would seem like Hasbro and Takara are really filling in the blanks with the toy lines that many 3rd Party have been. This is good news for collectors on a budget. Price point is over half to 1/3rd the price in many cases.
Overall the criticism seems to be mixed again on these. My general thought you don’t like the “Head Masters” / “Titan Masters” idea glue the head in place… These toys still have great overall value that really will hurt the 3rd Party Market, and making that Market place work harder and focus in on Adults, and even possibly switching focus to try and hit the younger audience (lower your prices…)
No more talking… Here is some of the Official Pictures. (Some great improvement on the 3D Renders here…)
