    Here are a few small projects I did while I was on the road. They were relatively straight forward (and the supplies were easy to pack!) I knew once I witnessed the awesomeness of Classics Onslaught that I needed to make some of his fellow Combaticons. I picked a few of the movie molds (Landmine and Brawl deluxes) for the similarities in alt modes, and for their articulation. Made the heads from Apoxie Sculpt, added new arms to help "dilute" the movie aesthetic, and repainted them. They both still transform great, and their poseability is excellent! They will look very nice next to their commander! Combination has not been ruled out, but I need to get Onslaught first, to see what can be done to make Bruticus a possibility (not to mention I have no idea which molds to use for Blast-Off and Vortex!) Enjoy!

    Really like that Swindle, especially with that glare on his face. Top notch!

    Really cool! Great renditions of the characters!

    However, I do sort of miss Swindle's feet. The legs look a bit awkward to me now.

    First of all, those heads are fantastic. Really expressive, even with Brawl's face-plate and visor and Swindle's expression is priceless. What did you use for their arms by the way?

    I can tell you Classics Mirage's arms went to Brawl, but I'm at a loss for Swindle. I really want to know too.

    These two are just awesome! It would appear that the ability to make these combine with some of the others to make Bruticus is very possible. I'm looking forward to seeing the attempts at that.

    As for Blast Off goes, a new head on Classics Astrotrain could work, but I haven't a clue as to Vortex. There aren't many decent looking deluxe scale copters out there.

    You beat me to the punch with Brawl. Those look great. The head sculpts are fantastic ... you've managed to capture their expressions perfectly. I can't to see what you have planned for Vortex and Blastoff. Keep up the great work.

    SB, these look fantastic man! I really hope that you'll be able to finish the set and make em combine with "Universe" Onslaught. Regardless, these guys ROCK. I'll simply echo what my buddies here have said and that's I expected nothing less than excellent from ya! Great job, bud! :thumb
