    Here is my bruticus from a KO. Im just learning how to 'bash' paint and customize and I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
    [​IMG]


    I Added ball joints to the arms, Articulated each arm of bruticus, added knee joints and some extra weaponry and armour on the legs. Also added balljoints to the feet.

    Also this was my first attempt at apoxie sculpt and I gotta say, I love that stuff! Huge possabilities.

    This bruticus is made of EVERYONE as my transformer resources are limited. He has sideswipe knees, grimlock hands as thighs, Menasaur waist plate added to his plate, various galvatron parts and inferno hips.

    Each new custom I am learning more and more. This guy stands about 13" as opposed to the regular version which is around 9". He looks mint on my shelves.

    Anywho, the last image is of what the KO looked like before.

    I like this a lot more than the official bruticus. colours are more unified military theme. Good job.

    Nice work! I take it these won't transform anymore (since Blast Off and Vortex look like they are in two halves now)--if that's the case, this still makes for a great Bruticus overall. The paint apps look nice and weathered and the articulation really makes this much better than the original KO.

    As for the views and only a few comments, don't let it get to you. Just keep doing what you're doing. Most people are still learning new tips and tricks as they go along and some may be interested in viewing, but not commenting. Then you also have those (like me) that don't have a lot of free time to comment on everything I view (long story short, I help take care of my fiancee's parents, one of which has cancer & the other is disabled--all this while helping as an admin at the site listed in my signature). So sometimes, people aren't always free to comment when they view--I drop in to view things and get away from everything for a bit. I did take the time to comment on yours to show some support and encourage you to continue doing your thing.

    Keep up the great work.

    Nice work here, an interesting update to the G1 toy and a nice choice in colors.

    Don't fret the comment thing...as Hxcpunk said, sometimes people have only time to view and comment later.

    Regardless, this one does deserve some props...nice work...

    Ya, its nice to get comments because I am new to this an trying to improve on it.

    As for the transformations. They all still do transform, albeit in slightly varied ways from the original, but I mainly designed him to just be bruticus, as the individual bots are kinda lame.

    Looks pretty good. I think this thread would benefit from more pics that show off the work you did on articulating these guys. It seems a bit odd that you did all that work only to have him posed in an almost static brick stance. People really apprciate more pics and it will add to the wow factor this custom should be earning. :thumb

    Yeah, I think the "no alt modes' thing is what kept my from initially commenting. What you've shared looks pretty cool, but without seeing the "whole story" it's hard to make a fair judgement.

    I'm not a big fan of Combined-Mode-only-Combiners, which I assumed this was. Even with heavily-altered individual-forms, I might find this 'bash much more compelling if I knew how the mods affected the other modes.

    Hey Guys,

    I actually sold him yesterday but I will see if I can find some of the Alt Mode Pics I took.

    It was a great project to learn from so I will be doing more for sure.
