    done while waiting for other stiff to cure/harden,i've always loved the original outback better than brawn.to make him,i took a g1 outback,cut out his chest and head and front rollbar/winch,shaved down both outbacks chest and legends brawns chest then fused them together.the winch was also shaved down lots then also fused to the front end.the head was carefully cutout and also sanded and shaved then fused to brawns body(after removing brawns head). the weapons are taken from a ko g1 swindle,all paints were tamiya acrylics but i did find out the hard way that my clearcoat recently passed it's pot life which is why there's some slight yellowing/fogging in some areas:(  it just means one of these days i'll have to strip him and repaint and re-clear him.)

    That's amazing!:thumbs2:  But WHY do you want to redo him? I know the clearcoat screwed up your original intentions, but all I see are subtle dirt marks, and they actually IMPROVE your already amazing figure since Outback is a vehicle that's kinda MEANT to get dirty, right?

    Great work you really made that legends figure stand out. I look at Brawn and think he's so-so but this guy looks really good. Maybe it's the guns...

    Love it! Fantastic job. I love you he did more than just repaint it. The face and chest transplant are superb!

    Fantastic job, it was only a matter of time before this custom was done, and you've managed it perfectly. Well done.

    Wow, that is an awesome job. Wonder why Hasbro didn't retool that Brawn?
