    I completed a custom this week. It's going to look even getter when the Maximal symbol reprolabels show up, and I can cover the Autobot symbols. I mean come on, all that kibble, brown outside, green and gold inside, dual-weilding firearms...this this was NEVER really Brawn.

    I've never really come to like Rhinox... not as a concept, not as a character...

    But I think you're really on to something here. :)

    Well, I would, but there's two problems:

    1. Probably not talented enough.

    2. I can't even conceive of a way to make it in a way to make it fold up in such a way that it would fit into his alt mode.

    hmmm,well you can spruce one up out of lego's,super glue,some epoxy, and some green and gold paint. remember that spare bits can be your friends in kitbashing land.,also get yourself a good reference of said chainguns of doom... and some sanding paper,oh and tweezers.

    Well, I mean, I have a couple spare chainguns from Beast Wars, but all I can think of is finding a way to mount them in the vehicle mode's bed. I think I like the guns, honestly.

    Yeah, I mean the outer brown and the inner green are both a lot darker than on Beast Wars, but I like to think that's all a side-product of adopting a Beast Mode. Otherwise I'd be in for a lot of extra work, and large-scale non-factory paint jobs almost always look crappy (my opinion).

    Better fit than Brawn, for sure.
    Nifty idea.

    That is a perfect fit! Though I still think he needs his Chainguns O' Death. :D 

    Except where would he store them in vehicle mode? Anyway, I totally love this mod. Simple yet very effective!

    Could use the chain cannon from Recon Ironhide. It snaps on the rollbars in vehicle mode.
