    I love the large tires on it. Photos courtesy of F_R, do we have another collaboration project on our hands?

    not this one, but thyvipera just sent me an interesting idea which will make for one later down the road.

    Nice work on this dan, I already told you so, but seeing this in hand....very impressive.

    This will will make a fine Bruticus!
    May I ask what are the tires from? They look familiar. And a nice addition. Makes all the difference from Hound.

    nah, not this one. But I'm sure we'll collaborate on something soon. I'd really like to work with Mike on something.

    thanks mike, and i'll let you know about that project asap. I'm going to start buying all the figures and parts soon.

    thanks bro!

    Thanks man. The tires are original hound wheels. I wanted to try and mod them, i had some wheels picked out for him, but I wasnt comfortable trying to mod them. I've never done a tire swap before.

    really like the tires. I think it'd look better if you gave it a front bumper though. why not just modify the one it comes with so that the bullbar is gone but not the actual bumper?

    he said they were stock tires. so whats so special about them besides paint? are people referring to a tire swap or the paint? i looked at my Hound, and those are the same wheels.

    These photos seem rushed. One of them is blurry, and the yellow looks extremely different between the first few pictures and the last one. Weird...

    Honestly, I think a little more TLC could have been put into this, like the rims (which come painted on the Henkei version), maybe the door handles, and also the dashboard could have been painted. I appreciate the attempt, though.

    Got anything showing off the robot mode yet?

    i wish I did a lot of things different, and detailed them a bit more. next time.

    bot modes should be up soon.

    thanks mike, i received them. you didnt have to, I would have been satisfied with the first ones, but I know it's your work, and you want them to be best as they can be, so I really appreciate that.
