    First of all, i'd like to thank Menchoy for his Predaking X. This was an inspired custom because of his work.

    Custom TFA Bruticus Maximus stands at 33inches tall. 12 LEDs all over.
    rotating waist, head,poseable limbs, fingers, swivel ankles, ball-jointed knee caps, hinged abdomen (for forward and slight backward movement), and many more poseable points of articulation.

    The concept of this work was: massive. evil. Impressionably a warrior. and an animated "feel". I threw in my take on animated and some concept ideas for a bruticus might feel and look like....and after 5 months, here it is.

    this figure transforms into :

    1) the 5 individual combaticons
    2) plus a RAM(Rapid armed Munitioner),
    3) a Combaticon Defense base (complete with helipad, launch pad, and gunner) with 9 LEDS

    Figures used:

    TFA LC ultra magnus (as Onslaught) , TFA LC bulkhead (the chest, crotch,abdomen, etc), TFA blitzwing (as Brawl), TFA Megatron (as Blast off), TFA Swindle, TFA Lockdown (base figure of Vortex), and the parts were a mixture of:

    GIJoe vehicles, Bionicles, Mega blocks Neo shifters, TFA jetfire, ZOIDS, zoids, zoids, zoids, and zoids, gundam, universe wingblade, KO energon Bulkhead, junk toys, junk parts from old toys, Unicron, and much much more.

    acrylic paints, enamels, and clear flats/matte.

    here is my youtube review of it:

    I love how each bot has a very Animated look & feel to each mode,
    but the combined mode has a very "TF Prime" mesh of Movie & Animated styles.

    Very cool, my friend. very cool.

    That thing is big, yet it looks quite stable. The work you've put into the figures really shows. Good stuff!

    That is a nice custom! I especially love Blastoff. Though Onslaught kinda looks more like Sixshot to me.

    I must be one of the people who hates animated figures the most ;) 

    But this X$TE$FGEGEGE OMG its just insane. Its huge, yet doesnt look bulky at all. The head sculpt of bruticus is one of the best ive seen so far although it doesnt have the animated look, i guess thats the part i love even more ;) 

    The mod is amazing. Paintjob is perfect and the whole combiner looks as its ment to be like this with no kibble parts hanging out anywhere.

    Just amazing man!
