Get Shapeways done by Spring. Painting req'd, but it will be quickly available for all 5 FOC molds 31 17.61%
Take up to 1 year to design & release via 3rd party. I can WAIT so I don't have to PAINT. 81 46.02%
Do both Shapeways (release soon) and 3rd party. (KO's will likely happen but I want the original) 61 34.66%
I just want SOMETHING to fix my Bruticus--a low-priced knockoff is all I need 3 1.70%

This is gonna be awesome
Television should be more informative. Television should be more intellectually stimulating. I'm going to start a movement for more socially aware tv programing!Just as soon i'm finished watching "THE BEACH CREATURE ANNOYS SANDRA DEE."

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys. It's going to be a fun project.

Yes, I'll make a few different kits do people could buy portions of the upgrade. I might add more bulk to Swindles heel once the protos arrive and I can better visualize where proportions need tuning.

From the looks of it there is still the basic trailer bed left over after beef-up, right? My big suggestion would be to redesign the back area to be the trailer folded in half so there is no left over alt-mode kibble. G1/G2 Bruticus even had a pair of wheels on his backpack so that would be even more of a G1 homage.

Smaller suggestions would be to make the chest shield wings be able to fold up, so so the shield can be stored on the trailer as sort of a brace/launching guide for Blast Off.

Great work! I look forward to the prototypes.
Yeah, that was my original plan and I still might make it fold onto his back, but I decided I needed a first build to figure it out...

Oh and I forgot to show that in fact the wings do mount in alt mode---but they mount to Onslaught, not the trailer...I'll add pics...

I got me the team for my own Xmas gift and was so let down once I put them together.
You have done something her sir I have been waiting for someone to do.
Great work, top notch idea and look.
If I also might give a suggestion about the trailer ?
Maybe make it so parts come off to make Onslaught have arms not Mister Burns arms . Nothing fancy just something that clips in his hands and makes him looking to do some damage and not just yell " Swindle release the dogs " .
Yeah, I can see that the trailer needs purpose. I'll keep thinking about it...maybe with some parts forming all these things can be accomplished...I also hate his forearms!

have you thought of the cannon he uses in the game?
Thanks, it's Shapeways so it will come in polished white so it can be painted to suit any FOC Bruticus including G2 BBTS version. Which cannon? I played the game but I forget...

Finally. Also, may I suggest a part for Blast Off that gives his arm mode that flat look for the forearm. It'd basically be just a flat plate. Although looking at the way you guys have the arm transformed, that doesnt seem possible...just a thought! I will defs be paying attention to this, may be my first product from you guys.

I think he's talking about Bruticus' flamethrower.

I wasn't sure if I was going to try to buy Bruticus Figure by Figure, but this gives me a reason to at least try.
