So Botcon 2015 has given us some pretty special reveals from Hasbro. But is has got us thinking, has Hasbro got their eyes set on the 3rd party’s share of the market?

If we take Bruticus as an example, Warbotron just finished their version of (not) Bruticus1509687_633409823425191_4044522184990999480_n

who all finished came in just shy of the £400 mark, which is a lot of money who ever you are. He was is a big robot, and very nice to look at.

That said, this set was not with out its issues. Time scale being a big one. Its took over a year from the first to last figure, by which time many people had moved on and sold the first figure. Warbotron had its fair share of ‘qc’ issues having to issue replacement parts along the way. But for those of us who stuck with it. we were left with a big impressive bot at the end of the set!


But now…. Hasbro have shown us this bad boy (which we all suspected was on the way)


Stick a set of Perfect Effects upgrade kit on there and this will be an awesome looking Bruticus. Even with the upgrade kit, this will still be well under half the price of the 3rd party option, and its more than likely we will be able to pick the whole set up in one go…

Warbotron gave us the little Shockwave (xray) and it seems Hasbro liked the idea of that, and thought they would have a go themselves. At least this time  I wount have to spend an angry hour putting it together.
