Although Bruticus was never featured in the Transformers: War Within books, the Gestalts were already a reality for groups such as the Constructicons and the Protectobots.

Later, four of those robots appeared in the middle a nameless city, and started wreacking havoc, destroying buildings, killing people, and effortlessly taking down the army vehicles and air force planes sent to stop them.
The mindless carnage, though, was not a random act: those robots were carrying on a plan whose ultimate goal remained unknown…
