    Alrighty, it's been a while, I've recently remodeled my shop so I've been away for awhile. I did have a few projects that were set aside while the shop was a WIP, so I'll be releasing the flood gates over the next couple weeks. I thought I'd start with this commission for a good guy that I know, and a first for me being a non-transforming figure of this scale.

    Bruticus was made using a Unicron base, which was extremely modified using parts from the fodder bin and tons of styrene. Universe Hound, Galvatron, and Astrotrain were next on the chopping block, as well as 2 Energon Cyclonus figures. I found this cool head on Ebay, which fit the scale perfectly, and tore it all down again for paint. All colors were custom mixed HoK Kustom Kolor paints, which I tried to match as closely to G1 as I could. After all of the details were complete, he was coated in Testor's Dullcote.

    Enjoy!

    i keep coming back to this. i wish this wasn't a commission. I'd love to have the chance to own him on ebay. That's a lucky guy who's going to own him. I've been watching the G1 episodes so much lately, this custom really hits home for me.

    Thanks BH, and everyone else as well. This guy was actually a blast to build, not having to plan for transformation opens up a lot of freedom with the detail work. I may give a few more gestalts a whirl this way, the wheels are in motion....

    I am the one who commissioned the Actionmaster Bruticus and I received him yesterday. He is even more amazing in person. JBarb captured exactly what I was looking for and now Bruticus is an excellent addition to display with all my custom Revoltech figures.

    JBarb is a class act and an excellent customizer. All the work he has done for me is amazing and I can't thank him enough.

    Looks like Blastoff comes from Classics Astrotrain.

    I love the G1 'toon feel of this figure, it looks ace :D

    Absolutely fantastic. I love how you managed to perfectly nail the cartoon appearance. Didn't think it was possible to go for that and still make it look good. Shame that he doesn't actually have cartoon colors, but that's something that you could go for if you make a v2. Just imagine it: This with the blue replaced by silver and with the Blastoff-colored chestplate! Could look pretty awesome!
