    I had been hording parts for Bruticus and Defensor for about a year before I started work on them. One day I just thought "I should probably start on these."
    Bruticus was my second favorite Decepticon combiner so he was the next logical project. I thought it would be neat to include a unique accessory for each figure ala Masterpiece figures that were directly tied to the characters in some way. As always, I go for cartoon accuracy whenever I feel it's possible.

    Those look great! The shame is that Hasbro could have done this themselves...

    You are correct on both points sir! The balljoints are from Mini-cons and I do rock! hah! Mostly, the shoulder, hip, and neck joints are balljoints taken from Mini-cons. Blastoff and Vortex always had balljoint shoulders, and Onslaught always had a super-poseable hinge joint system in his shoulders. A lot of the elbow and knee joints are hinge joints from Mini-cons. Vortex, Swindle, and Brawl already had hinging joints at the knee areas, I just needed to make sure the hinge rods didn't fall out.

    That looks fantastic! I love the fact that you took the time to articulate not only Bruticus in his merged form, but each team member as well.

    Awesome!
