    Hey guys! Brawn is finished and ready for Ebay!

    **Please post ebay auctions in the TFW2005.com eBay forum. ~Radicons Staff**

    Brawn would absolutely hate the fact that he was constructed using a Decepticon but he'll get over it! I sculpted the head from the cockpit of a B-Wing model kit with some mighty putty. It's only a half an inch wide so it was pretty tough getting all that detail in there. But it appears to have paid off! He's a good half inch shorter than Soundwave now. I did away with the foot transformation and filled in the void using styrene to create his shins, then cut out his little "foot treads" using ultra thin styrene to add some detail. The brush guard was added simply so he could now stand with the foot modification. The tire on top is from Act BB and just drilled in place with a small piece of styrene tubing. The doors where Soundwaves trademark "reels" were, were filled in with mighty putty, then the door seam was scribed back in with added door handles to break up the flatness of it all. I really like how the head came out. I was worried that it was too small, but it had to remain that size in order to transform, but I really think it adds to his bulkiness! Hope you enjoy the pics!

    That is a really well done Brawn. I would not even have suspected it was a custom if I did not know already, well except that Hasbro cannot even produce work near this quality anymore.

    Pure win. I wish we had this now. The use of the putty on the doors and the remolded details is too cool.

    Oh wow.. Do you do castings? I'd love to give this custom a try, but I have a feeling that head sculpt's as good as they come. Can we get like a big, close-up shot of his face?

    Agreed. The custom head really does have a lot of character to it.
