    And so after 5 months, I've progressed... very little. Been busy. Sorry.

    I've been doing something though, and that's been rounding up the other Combaticons.

    Little work has been done so far. Mostly it's just me tinkering and playing to see what I can get to work.

    The mold choices aren't exactly ground breaking (except maybe for Onslaught... you'll see, I'll make it work), and there's still plenty to be done to them. I'm still looking for a Vortex mold. The RotF Vortex is going to be a bit on the small side, so I may just go nab a TRU Whirl. I don't know. Still have to think about it.

    Swindle nabbed this off of Inferno. Profit? No. This one's for fun.

    As always, comments are more than welcome. Thanks to looking through my stuff, as patient as you may have to be to see me get through a project. LOL

    Be back in a little bit with a quick update on Brawl.

    - Here's that Brawl.

    Very cool! I noticed that might be possible with this mold, but I decided to keep my WIP a little different (might even be changing up what I've already shown--just not sure yet).

    My only questions are what does it look like in alt mode? Also, what do you plan to do with the front grill? (put it back in for the alt mode? or are you planning something different entirely?) The only thing I don't really like is the way the tires sit on top of the shoulders (it's not your fault though--just the way the mold transforms as-is). Regardless, I like what you've done here, bro! Keep up the great work.

    Thanks. It's actually exactly the same, just without the front bumper & brushguard. Took some quick photos for the heck of it.

    I'm going to cut off the small grill part of that black piece to glue back onto the front of the jeep, and try to use the rest as a gun mount hopefully using those Ravage pegs.

    No clue about the brushguard yet.

    Hmm...not bad. Not bad at all! It's amazing how many different things people can do with this mold!

    if you want to cover the hands/arms showing at the front it might be possible to put some details on the back of the hands to make itlook like the piece you removed or attach it to one of the arms with a few hinges so that it swings infornt of them. with one arm haveing that and possibly another with an arm cannon it would look less like hound. however it all depends on how much you want to do with tis guy. it looks great so far though are you going to try and raise the head a bit? it looks a little bit sunk in the chest.

    If you're going to use him in bruticus, maybe you can find some way to replace the brush-guard/grill with something removable that can then serve as Bruticus' foot? :p 

    I'm asking too much, I know. But I like pushing people to reach for the stars!

    If I were planning on making a Bruticus, a Bruticus foot would be connecting to Swindle's feet, and the knee joint would be somewhere around his head. Kind of like this:

    But I'm not planning on making a Bruticus. Not right now at least.

    Very nice! I have Henkei Astrotrain and the classics. I keep thinking I should sell my classics but then I keep seeing this and then I want to keep him to maybe try making the combaticons.

    That's pretty much exactly what I did. I bought the Henkei and finally took the Classics down and he was then re-designated "Blast-Off."
    Cybertron Mudflap. Same mold as the Movie-1 Mudflap, or "Classics Erector" as some have put it. I think it was a Toys R Us exclusive repaint.

    You could maybe try Blazemaster for Vortex?

    I don't think a civilian helicopter fits "Combaticon" much. Toys R Us Whirl might be my best bet.

    An Osprey wouldn't be too bad. Wasn't that figure a Voyager though? Also, there'd have to be some work done to lose the movie aesthetic from the figure.

    I'm starting to think I just may have to some real heavy bashing and a re-shell to get a good Vortex.
