    Another interesting take. What made you go with white? Excellent use of the streaker arms btw.

    Don't like the newly sculpted vehicle-mode weapon, and you should probably use a little masking tape before handling the windows next time, but other than that, this bash looks great. Awesome new headsculpt too.

    I love it! He is my favorite of the ones you made. I love the arms and the new head. Great use of a movie figure.

    So far you haven't let us down on these guys. I think I like this one the best. I also like the fack that you took away the movie look from him. By adding Starscreams arms, also I like the new head, it sets him of from being fab Blackout. But I'm not to crazy about that big connection peice behind his head (looks like a big ball of puddy) could of been cleaner.

    Makes me wonder if there is a way to do mods like that to the Voyager scale also. I've been wanting to add him to my Alternators Combaticon collection. Man I really hope they decide to make Blackout/Grindor in Leader class this go around. Kinda like they did with Brawl last time.

    yea, the paint is a bit sloppy. when i get him back, I'll be touching them up a little bit.

    thanks guys!

    thanks man. he actually is the voyager blackout (i think. they didnt make blackout as a deluxe did they? i'm pretty sure he is the voyager figure).

    Yea, i'm not crazy about the connector piece either. I'll prob. be making another bruticus, and I'm def. going to go another route.

    thanks for the comments everyone. Bruticus will be up shortly. Hope you guys like him

    Nah, the paint itself looks great, just need to use a little masking tape to make painting within the lines a little easier.

    Why would you add such a small figure to your Alt collection?

    There is a Fast Action Battler as well as Voyager versions of Black Out. TFW2005.com resources FTW! :wink: 

    As others have said, there are points that you can work on, but I understand that this is a wip. :thumb

    That is why I haven't added him to my Alt collection. Although I do have the Voyager version of him, but he is still in box and not with my Alt collection. Also thats why I hope they do make the decision to make him in Leader class. Then I will probally sell/trade my Voyager class version of him.

    Yes there is a Fab class of Blackout. Thats why I asked, because it kinda stumped me when I saw that you had Streakers arms on him. It made me think this was the Fab version, I wasn't thinking he was that small till I saw him here with those deluxe arms. Is he really that small in Bot mode?

    Love it man! Love the use of Onslaughts head. Is that a spare head, or did you cast it. And are those classics sunstreaker/sideswipes arms?
    Its friggin sweet.

    Can you walk us through the alterations and the changes made to the transformation?
    Yes, I desperately want to try this mod myself!
    I've had blackout since the first day he appeared in toy stores and basically threw him into a corner after an hour trying to make him transform and not have him detaching and flopping all over the damn place.
    Should have been one of the best TFs ever...wasn't.
