    I like it, but I think you should have chosen a larger mold for Vortex.

    I agree. It's unfortunate that such a cool looking figure has to be so out of scale with the others. Other than that, Bruticus is looking cool (nice clean details). Good choice using Cybertron Prime's body for Onslaught.

    The execution looks very nice, the paint is crisp and accurate. However, the thighs and legs look too skinny/small in my opinion. If you add some bulk to them it will give the overall figure a much more menacing appearance.

    Very cool. Cybertron Optimus is a Great base figure and can be used for so many things. The only thing I would chane would be the helocopter. Maybe Blazemaster from ROTF would be more to scale with the others.

    Cybertron Optimus? That's a Cybertron Metroplex.

    I agree with what others have said about Vortex being too small. That, and he looks like he's got some chicken legs in combined mode.

    i agree. skinny/lankiness is a faux pas in any combiner. bulk looks more menacing.

    skinny legs: noted guys and thanks!

    as for the head, it is scratch built using epoxy putty

    as for vortex, i hate the idea of it being small too, looking for an alternative. any suggestions? dont want to to use ROTF figs though

    meron naman sigurong paraan din para maikabit yung mga paa at kamay ng combiners na walang gamit na extensions. hindi kasi ito G1-esque. yun ang hinihintay ko. Like Redline's Menasor, no extensions but it works.

    If you do use blazemaster, you could always sculpt him a new head. I'm not sure of any other deluxe scale helicopter that would work. There's Cyclonus from Armada but I personally hate the Transformation on him.
