    i happen to have both energon bruitucus maximus and his rotf/classics reissue set

    i also have the two fansproject cross-fire 02 add on swindle/munitioner and explorer/blastoff sets to enhance either bruticus maximus set with

    i also have a set of g1 replacement heads for onslaught, brawl and vortex courtesy of soundwave3k


    lastly i have the reprolabels decal sets for the 3 energon/rotf/classics combaticons and their two fansproject add on figures

    this is my question on the matter

    using the combaticon character model art from the dreamwave transformers g1 universe 8 issue miniseries as a basis for each figures new colorscheme


    the repalcement heads
    energon barricade
    certain replacement parts from the duplicate helibot and tankbot limbs
    and the reprolabels decal sets

    would it be possible to do some selective parts swapping to give vortex onslaught, brawl, swindle and bruticus a colorscheme modeled more closely after their character model art from the 8 issue g1dreamwave transformers universe series?

    with only the bare minimal of repaint work required?

    say for example by salvaging all the purple and gray colored torso body parts from energon blackout and swapping them with those same parts from rotf/classics vortex to give vortex back some of that purple color he is missing through the torso area

    basicly i want to give each of the 5 combaticons/six if you count bruticus/ as accurate a dreamwave g1 colorscheme as possible with only the bare minimal of repaint work required if at all possible

    but at the same time though i have made certain modifications to onslaught so that he can use energon omnicon skyblast jetmode as bruticus's armored flying wing breastplate piece

    if at all possible i would liek to give the skyblast figures robot mode a starscream style colorscheme but in such a way that the skyblast's figures vehicle mode would still be sporting the colorscheme for bruticus's chestplate armor

    the basic idea being that starscream went so far as to actually upgrade his own body so that he himself can form a part of the bruticus combiner form

    in starscreams case he would form bruticus's breast plate flying wing armor

    right now i got all the parts and stuff i need for the project but i am still working through the whole idea in my head

    lets just say that i am looking for some helpful positive constructive criticism on the matter

    right now i am just trying to thoroughly brainstorm the whole matter over


    this being my first major custom project i really do not want to leave anything to chance

    when i do a projecti like to do so in a slow methodical manner i like to toil away and tinker at every minor detail of the project idea wise untili am certain that everything about the idea which the project in question revolves around is in proper working order

    i happen to have a real knack for stuff like that

    to be honest though this is the first timie i have attempted a transformers project
