    That is nasty!! Legs look a 'tad' short (any feet lying around?) but either way, that is extremely sick!

    thanks! yea, i had some compliments on my first Bruticus about the legs looking a bit too short. I think his proportions are pretty good. I might see about making him some feet ;)

    Very awesome looking. My only complaint is probably that the head looks just a little too boxy. Other than that, great job!

    the head seems a tad bigger than i'd like it to be makes him look stumpy. if you can make the head maybe 2/3 i know that the overall proportions should fall into place. other than that I love how bulky this combiner is and agree with you that the body proportion is awesome! minus the head size.

    thanks guys. yea, the head a little too blocky and a tad too big. I'll be ordering a Bruticus head from ptitvite asap, if he has the time.

    Yeah, it looked,like, incredible right up until I saw the head and then I admit to giggling a bit.

    Now I'm starting to wonder if I should make my Combaticons combine...

    Darn you for your inspiration. *shakes fist in air*

    Nice work man! Yeah man this looks incredible but you gotta add some feet...and definitely install his "rooster-tail" on the center of his head plus his side-horns, like the original toy head. Does the team break down and transform?

    Nice work! There are all sorts of cool things I recognize in that figure. He looks pretty solid.

    I'll chime in with most of the other posters... the proportions seem just a bit "off"... childlike even. I don't think it's the shortness/thickness of the limbs so much... I think a smaller head would rectify it. Also, the head itself, while having a distinct style, clashes with the more weathered surface detail of the rest of his components. It does definitely make him look "brutish" though.

    So yeah... great overall, but the head feels like it doesn't belong on this custom to me.

    "Ewww, a PARTSFORMER?!?!?" "So much partsforming. reminds me of thebuilt to rule sets.."

    :D  j/k

    Great job, love the paintwork and the overall "bulkiness" of it.

    I agree with the rest about the head, but you've already said that you're getting a different one, so no sense belaboring that point.

    I'm interested in seeing a full-body shot that shows the left arm (that you used Blackout for) completely. I worry that it may look just a bit too big, BUT (as the previous poster said), if you can craft some feet for him then it may make the overall proportions flow that much better.

    My two cents. Overall, great job!

    I'm not going to lie. That head is very rough-looking, especially compared to the rest, which is actually pretty good.
