    As promissed guys, gals and fans of Kidbash.com here he is Bruticus and the Combaticons.

    I had a lot fun working on this kit painting, sanding and getting all the pieces to fit together just right. I want to thank Bao and the Kidbash.com gang for coming up with wonderful kit to make Bruticus look oh so much better.

    Holy F***ing S**t. That is amazing. I am blown away. I love it when people get really creative like this. Makes me want to try something myself. I just don't seem to ever have the time.

    This is fantabulus! I especially like how you made the forearms blend with the limb figures then tied them together with accent colors. :thumbs2:  A really nice touch. And HOW did you manage to paint the eyes!!?? I've been staring at that head for two months trying to figure out how to do that!

    I do have two small gripes tho'. I don't like the glossy finish. It's just a prefrence of mine I guess, but I feel like combat vehicals wouldn't be too shiney. Also I think the head needs an accent color to break up the silver chest/head/rear guns. Maybe just some black to tie into the other bots or something.

    Awesome work tho bro. You set a high bar to reach.

    First of all thank you all for your kind words so far. Keep them coming!

    I was a lot like you, how do I get those eyes painted and to look just right.

    But then I thought about it for a while and just decided to paint the whole head silver first then go back and paint the eyes area orange and then just touch up where needed to get the eyes done. You could also try using a tooth-pick to touch up some the areas of the eyes if you need to.

    This has really turned out well. I would echo the same sentiment about the glossiness, though. That being said, I'm not a fan of Transformers toys with excessive amounts of weathering on them either. I think there is a nice balance to be had here :) 

    Overall, this is a fantastic piece. I really enjoy all of the extras you've added with it as well. :thumb

    This is a very nice kitbash of the Combacticons by remolded versions of their Energon counterparts.
