    finally finished!!(besides some small touch ups here and there)for the explanation,this will take place in the "idw"verse,right after bruticus dissappeared.

    after being thoroughly stomped in the sea by predaking,bruticus kept walking along the sea floor aimlessly.eventually,he came upon a island in the pacific which was deserted,yet filled with multiple stock piles of dead transformers bodies and scraps and the best part...loads of unused weaponry.while upgrading their bodies with newer tech and weapons,the combaticons came upon a "spidertank mark2",(remember facing a giant spider tank in the armada ps2 video game?that would be an earlier prototype)sparkless, yet still in great shape.once upgraded,the combaticons left the pacific island in search of both the "bird" bot who betrayed him and left him to die,the "firebird bot" who hurt him so,but mostly he searches for predaking....eager to exact his revenge....

    Dude that turned out freaking AWESOME

    Added: now that I've had time to take in the awesomeness, here are some further opinions:
    1) I do like the arms but I do think Primus forearms would fit the asthetic better.

    2)The upper back kibble really hurts the overall bulk of the figure, makes him look are to top heavy

    3) While I love your drone ship chest piece, I think it would benefit from some additional color apps, some shading or detail work right now its just too much silver

    I do love what you did with the combiner parts making then actually turn into accessories of destruction. The upper back kibble is deffinately what hurts the figure the most it just throws off the balance of him for me

    Holy @#$%&!!!! It's finally here!!! My favourite gestalt is here!! Chans man, this is freakin unbelievable. I like how it's so fresh and different and new, yet there are traces of G1 in there such as the colour and the back cannons! I especially love how you incorporate the limbs into well.....limbs! Instead of too much Unicron bits (though some) and other fodder. And three modes as well?!? Dude. Stop outdoing yourself, it's making me blush. :D  Now to twirl Vortex's blades and chop up some Autobums! Great job all around, really. Give a round of applause folks, mindblowing.

    :lol  Starscream, for reference and scale. Love it!

    This turned out fantastic. I can tell you really took your time with the paint apps as well. There is such a huge saturation of silver on the chest plate that I wished the head had a few more shades to break up the saturation of silver a bit. Otherwise, great job.

    I think the Unicron limbs hurts this piece some. Aside from that, I absolutely LOVE everything you've done with it. I really enjoy that this piece has a lot of bulk to it. Great job :thumb

    Gorgeous work man. I think the issue with the Unicron limbs is that there's not enough bulk in the torso/thigh area relative to the arms and lower legs. A bit of bulking up there would certainly do the trick IMO.

    The mods and finish here are really impressive chansformers and your choice of molds is ace.

    THIS IS BRUTICUS!!!!!

    I knew this one would be supremely HUGE. WOW, all the bots are perfect enlargements of their original components. Nice work with using the combiner parts as a separate piece.

    You should be totally proud of this work.

    HOLY SH!T! Pretty much sums it up about my thoughts on your take of Bruticus. The extra parts become a base or tank is awesome and the rest...wow. Very mind-blowingly cool. Despite the kibble...this custom definitely screams Bruticus. 'nuff said.

    That really came out great! I like the Techno-con look to it as well. I wasn't to sure what to expect when I saw the selections of figures you chose but you sold it dude!

    My only gripe is that the legs are a little too lean compared to the rest of the body. I also would've preferred Primus forearms because they seem more appropriate for Bruticus (guns and all). Still, this is a very solid piece of work. Please submit it to the Radicon gallery when you can.
