    I'm not big into combiners, other than two. Predaking is always going to be my fave, just because how big and powerfull he was!!! But a very close second is Bruticus. Loyal to no one but themselves, and full of butt kicking down to the core, I always loved the Combaticons. Hell, if not for those damn 3 dots, they would be running Cybertron!

    I'm currently finishing a Devy for Slimaxis, but I wanted to do a combiner formula that really hadn't been replicated much, as far as the standard Unicron and Primus parts, so after about a year of collecting random stuff, I decided on one of my all time favorite figs for the 'parts-forming", Cybertron Metroplex. Onslaught will be a Leader Class Armada prime cab, with TFTM Brawl as Brawl, Cybertron Defense Hot Shot as Swindle, Classics Astrotrain as Blast-Off and Armada Cyclonus as Vortex.

    He's fairly early on, and some of my joints and combination points need work, but he can stand on his own now, without any help from me, and doesn't try to tip over. TONS of magents about, and as per me, he will be able to destroy a small planet with his wealth of firepower :thumb .

    I had planned on keeping him on the low, but I thought to myself....

    "Self?"

    And myself says "Hmmm..."

    "You should share this with the rest of the guys, you selfish bastard..What would TF Master say?"

    "..."

    Thanks for looking. And thanks for Ptivite, Nemesis Predaking and Sioce for that "push' to get me started. Also, seeing Chansformers finish his was quite inspirational, as well as the other members who have all turned out some spectacular combiners!

    Update 10/19/09:

    Yay! Got the Left Arm on and working well. Right arm is almost complete (if I don't run out of magnets :lol )

    Update: 10/22/09

    Gonna sit this guy to the side for a while, as I need to finish up some almost finished commissions. He stand a full 20" tall, and by my estimated should be a full 2 feet once the weapons are mounted onto the shoulders and his electronics are in place.


    [​IMG]

    The arms are mounted by Neo-Shifter joints, so his shoulders have some great range of movement, a full 360 degrees of rotation up and down, and another 180 degrees forward and backward :thumb 

    [​IMG]

    The head will be a modded MP Optimus Prime head. So far, so good. Take THAT Nemy!!!! :lol  The Radicon Combiner Wars are ON!!!

    Looks awesome so far. I'm not used to seeing bruticus as such a tall lean character, this will be interesting.

    I've always though that prime was a perfect onslaught.

    I agree Y_R,I've always pictured Bruticus as a wide and powerful behemoth,but this should be a great thing once done,and I've never actually thought of using Armada Prime as Onslaught....might have to do that.....

    I saw Astrotrain, but what do you plan to use for Vortex? Cyb Evac seems to be the norm ...
    Also, I couldn't tell what swindle was ...

    Anyway, this is looking really nice, and I can't wait to see him finished!!

    New Pic Added:

    Yes and yes. They will combine to form a Masssive Misslie turret for Onslaught while in Alt Mode, and they will also become a Battle Station when all bots are transformed, so at least, no loose pieces. :thumb 

    :thumb 

    All the bots will have their own Bot and Alt mode.

    Thanks! Actually, he's not as lean as the pics make him look. I think more of the size shows up from the side than the front. Plus, one I add my "kibble' for the legs and waist, and hat huge chest piece, it will all flesh out.

    Swindle is Cyb. Defense Hot Shot, but he will be modded to resemble his Combaticon homage. That dual turret at the top will be coming off and replaces with Swindle's arm cannon. Cyb. Evac didn't scream "combat copter" to me, so I'm going with Armada Cyclonus. The lifting front section will be a great place to use the combiner piece for the other forearm, as it closes and opens for that Armadaa Mini-con gimmick.
