    The Combaticons. An elite mercenary force of the most skilled and dangerous Decepticons, who splintered from the main army after they grew tired of Megatron's antics. Those who crossed them were condemned to the Pit, never to be seen or heard of again. So great is their might, that tales and legends sprung up around them, fueled by the shroud of mystery surrounding them. One of these legends is about a Titan that combines all of their might, a monstrous yet majestic being that could level entire cities with a mere wave of it's hand. But legends are just that, legends, and it was unlikely that such a being existed...

    However, every legend has a core of truth.

    When all else fails, when not even Bruticus, the combined form of the Core Team is enough to crush the opposition, when even the Combaticon army is forced back up against the wall...This behemoth is born. And woe on those who dare resist the might of the King of Titans, the Emperor of Gestalts...

    BRUTICUS MAXIMUS!

    Last november, I started a project about movie-fied versions of the Combaticons. The project grew and grew and became the most ambitious thing I have ever undertaken, with them soon spawning their own fan-canon and turning into a full fledged army. The only Bruticus that I was planning was a combined form of the Core Five: Onslaught, Blast-Off, Swindle, Brawl and Vortex. But then this contest came around, and I thought on what to do for it...And then I got an idea, a monstrous one, one that left me wondering if I should even do it. The only thing holding it back though was that it would be based on an already existing project, so I asked Joe Moore if it was okay, and he said 'yes'. So here it is, Bruticus Maximus, the combined form of ALL Combaticons that I was already planning, AND a couple of added ones, just to bulk it out. This monster did NOT have ANY pre-concept work done; all of this was made up for the contest.
    However, because of this I WILL not show the individual members; if you want to see them though, then just go to my DA: Ra88 on deviantART

    NOTE: Colors, back view, isometric view and component breakdown coming tomorrow.

    Until then, here's a list of who's in it, and what function/altmode they have, and what the end up as in the final combined form.

    UPDATE: Was a bit busy today, so unfortunately I didn't get the colors done. Hopefully I'll be able to finish them tomorrow, though I'm starting to doubt it...:(  In any case, here are the flat colors to at least show you guys where each component goes, and a little sizechart with BM and the completed Combaticons, all silhouettes because they were not designed for the contest.

    UPDATE 2: Here we go, the big guy himself colored! First black and white pic moved down to promote the colored one!

    Oh, and I just noticed the odd red smear on his shoulder...Must have accidentally done that while coloring him and missed it, urgh. I'll try fix it tomorrow if the jury allows it, but if not, no big deal. But for now...Sleeeeep. :lol

    Looks AMAZING Ra! I still think that this will be AT LEAST in the Top 10. I really can't wait to see what else you're going to do with the colours and stuff.

    I'm really impressed to see all the work and detail you put into all of the Combaticons. It's really cool how you sort of made them their own faction. It's very cool.

    Best of luck in the contest!

    Amazing work, Ra88, you've created a total monster in the movie style, but used enough homages to know it's Bruticus. I really like the design work of the limbs in particular, very complex and intricate. The way you've brought over 20 members together into a single whole is commendable. The detailing is insane!:bowdown:

    It's harder and harder to constructively praise or criticize with each amazing entry I see. You know I love this. What shall I single out? OK, I love how huge the feet are, heavier and larger than Prime, so he doesn't have to be a quadruped.

    Wow, that is one of the most impressive things I have ever seen. Do you have a chemical weapons specialist planned?

    Thanks for the compliments guys! :rock 

    Not yet, and I don't want to add even MORE members, but one of the undrawn ones could be a specialist. :)

    Just seen the update, it looks smashing. I think even like that he looks amazingly well done. This thing has a really epic kind of appearance to it. He looks suitably ominous and apocalyptic in that silhouetted form there. I really hope you can finish this off!:drunk 

    I like that you homaged the Vortex rotor-arm with the Super Hind as well..
