Work In Progress Bruticus 30% done

As the title says, I am currently working on a Bruticus combiner.
Let's hope, as my second combiner, that it ends up better than
my last attempt at one seen here: WIP Combiner *Shudders* Let's just not mention it.
Newer stuff up here, older stuff down there.


UPDATE!


Here we have the Big Bad Battlin Dudicus himself. He's far from done, but HE CAN STAND! I might pose him later, when I find a good way to actually attach Brawl's foot.


Anyways, as you can see, I am only about 30% done with the entire thing.
I slightly modified a G1 Bruticus head for this and [almost] completely scratchbuilt the chestplate. I'm kind of trying to go for an 'Earthmode FOC Combaticons' feel, but also give them a kind of G1 feel.

As you can see here, I don't have much for 'Brawl' in his leg mode, but I gave him a small Styrene foot for now. I'm trying to figure out where to put the Bionicle/combiner/whatever connector on the PRID Optimus leg for him, as well as 'Swindle'

I'm still debating on whether or not to use this as Swindle's leg mode, or folding his lower legs down as if he were in Robot mode for a slightly longer leg mode.

Right here, is all I have for the Gestalt mode that can connect together. I put a Bionicle ball joint
in Blast Off's chest and a Bionicle port... thing onto "Onslaught's" shoulder. Also, I need ideas on who to use for Vortex.

And then we have Blast Off, who I scratchbuilt, as you can no doubt tell. He is my first attempt at a scratchbuild, and he is far from done. I need to sculpt, or find him a proper head, as do all of my Combaticons.

His space shuttle mode isn't that bad, but it obviously isn't seamless.

Thanks for Looking! I will update this eventually, and hopefully frequently!

Stress leads to worry. Worry leads to hate. Hate leads to the dark side. Warbotron is really the sith. Warbotron/TFC conspiracy shot down!

Thanks! I'll upload better pics soon. I didn't realize how dark they were until after I uploaded them.

Thank you! It took me a while, but I at least have the base done for it.

Nope. All I used for him was some hinges off of PRID Cliffjumper, a pair of arms from cyberverse Sentinel Prime, the chest, waist and upper legs of an Energron Strongarm, and an old Space Shuttle model I had lying around.

I agree that the pics are a bit dark, but I love where this is going. I also dig the work you've done on Blast Off! Nice work--keep it up!

Well, Here he is with both of his legs.

Also, Updated the first post with a poll. And I might just end up scratchbuilding Vortex too.
