    Just a quick note this guy ends on eBay in a very short time and is still at a really great price if you want to pick up a bargain




    hi there,

    You might have seen my previous custom bruticus transformer from earlier in the year and i decided to do another one with slightly different chest shield, head and hand coloring. Ok here is a bit about him, he is 19 inches tall to the top of his back mounted cannons and a little over 16 inches to the top of his head, he is designed to fit perfectly in scale next to the classics / henkei / generations line.

    Bruticus is extremely articulated and here is a list of his articulation
    - main head is ball jointed
    -shoulders are very posable, 360 degrees as well as tilting up and down
    -elbows bend
    -upper arms rotate
    -wrist is ball jointed
    -hands are extremely posable whith each finger being balljointed as well as a second pin joint
    -waist rotates 360 degrees
    -hips are highly articulated swinging in and out as well as back and forward, ratcheted joints too.
    -knees are posable
    -lower leg pivots
    -ankle pivots to provide dynamic posing too
    -the wings on his chest shield also swing in and out to allow for greater
    movement (plus its a really cool gimmick :) 
    -and his hip armor also swings in and out to allow dynamic leg posing.

    Bruticus also comes with three heads the first is very closely modeled on the gen one head, the second
    has angry eyes and the third has a variation on the eyes, all three are included so you can choose
    which you prefer, (i like the angry eye version)

    i have made two scratchbuilt giant guns for bruticus based on the gen one rifle, he actually only ever had one
    gun on the show but i like him with two :)  each one is huge too.

    now for the individual robots, bruticus is completely transformable.all the individual robots transform from vehicle to bot
    without having to take away parts or add parts on (they are NOT partformers)

    -onslaught has individually posable giant scratchbuilt cannons in truck mode that are on bruticus's back in combined mode (note: you dont have to remove and replace the cannons in combined mode, they transform to the correct configuration), you can also pose these cannons up in onslaughts robot mode but i prefer them down.he also has a new scratchbuilt head

    -vortex has removable blades and a secret hidden weapon that converts into a hand held shoulder mounted missile launcher. he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head

    - blast off comes with a hidden weapon too which can be transformed into a battle axe (this is my fave weapon :)  he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head

    -brawl was heavily modified to make him look gen oneish with brand new arms etc his secret weapon is created from his tank barrel and is a hand held bazooka.he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head

    -swindle was also heavily modified to look gen one ish and i really like him alot. he comes with a roof mounted double cannon that brakes apart into two hand held blasters,he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head

    i will be putting him up on ebay tommorrow so check him out if you are curious, oh and bruticus is designed to be in scale with my other gen one
    combiner customs too.

    well i hope you like him, bye bye

    There are some really neat choices going on here. I especially like the JRX/RiD Bullet Trains as limbs. Everything here works wonderfully :thumb

    Umm, dude....that is just f*cking amazing. Great choice using a cybertron Mudflap for Onslaught, he looks utterly bad-ass. My only critique is that Bruticus needs a *blazing* Decepticon emlem on his chest plate, that would absolutely complete the look and make this thing a perfection, other than that, it is a superb work, excellent job.

    VERY AWESOME. Your Blast Off is what I thought would be a great mod for Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp as Leer Jets that combine into SEEKER.

    amazing custom!

    hmm, i see a lot of unicron. but he executed the unicron parts wonderfully, so bravo!

    and i agree, it's nice to see a combiner thinking outside of the box. I'm really glad he doesnt havn't unicron forearms, and the actual bots.

    I agree on the decepticon Emblem, but that is a pretty minor detail. This is a very beautiful piece.

    I'm just sad I'll never be able to afford this.

    But I have most of those molds if you ever want to sell an upgrade kit.

    Great job man!
