    Hey everyone, been awhile since ive posted anything. for some time now i have wanted a Brawn to go with my classics collection, but no figures really stodd out to me well enough to use, and the iGear Brawn has WAY too much kibble so didnt wanna go with that guy.

    so after buying a TFP Kup and realizing it sucked as a Kup, i gave it a hard look to see who it could be and sure enough to me it seemed like the perfect Brawn!

    the figure remains mostly the same as it came, with the exception that the head was changed, it was casted for me by forum member Savio-Prime, and the hood area was cut into 9 pieces and put back together in a new configuration. the figure DOES still transform, i went for a more of a brushed look with this guy, wanted it a lil gritty if you will. the clear coat i put on ended up coming out a lil too glossy and actually smoothed out the paint a bit more as well... overall tho i am completely happy with this figure!

    photos were taken with my iphone, so im sorry if the quality isnt all that great. i put a lil boarder on the pics to help black out any background and to focus on the figure.

    thanks for looking and c/c always welcome :)

    Suits the sculpt waaaay better as Brawn! Dunno why they didn't do this anyway. I'd prefer my Kup to be more skinny 'old man' type.

    This works very well as Brawn. Mind snapping some pics with his bazooka when you get around to it?

    Damn that is almost too good I feel like slapping my forehead. Great eye on this one. I like the figure a lot but it's just too small but for a minibot it's perfect!

    I already own iGear Brawn, but I might use my copy of Sgt. Kup for Outback.

    Thanks everyone, im glad this guy is going over well cuz i put a lot of work into this minibot lol

    Ill post vehicle mode pics later tonight or in the morning, still wanna wait a bit for the paint to fully cure.

    And yes the head is from Classics Cyclonus. It was casted for me by forum member Savio-Prime, but then i had to add a new ball joint and shave down the back in order to allow the hoods hinges to fit in alt mode

    That is awesomely done! :thumb  Darn, if Hasbro had went only a few more steps in the opposite direction with this mold I'd have a Classics-verse Brawn in my collection. Instead I have a stand-in Brawn from a movie-verse mold. :(  Look foward to seeing your Outback from this mold. :)
