    Well, I get made fun of because I have a bunch of (6) Fansproject upgraded Bruticuses, so I decided to "go for the gusto" and go all the way with a true Battle Gaia repaint.

    C&C of course, welcome.

    hey, nothing wrong with having duplicates, or a few extras to make some of the lesser knowns.

    I mean, I have two of the FP Protector sets....

    that being said, I love it TJ, its good to see you coming into the radicons doing your own thing and learning the pics in the cool stuff thread too, you've come a long way.

    Neat! He looks good in black!

    Quick question, though. How did you turn Onslaught's legs like that to show both the screw holes (for the crotch piece) and the 6 raised indentations on his thigh all in front there? Maybe I'm transformation-challenged, but I can't seem to get mine to look like that (the six raised indentations always end up on the wrong side - either backward or facing out to the sides), unless the legs were unscrewed and swapped with each other. XD

    Great job, TJ!

    Wow...simply wow. I wonder if they knew all along that someone would recolor this set and add on the 3rd party stuff as this character. Seems like at one time they considered just making their own combiner.

    Hey thanks! And thanks for the reference. I didn't even think about that.

    Hey thanks a lot!

    I appreciate this man. It's a huge board with a lot of nice resources and tutorials. It's definitely not too hard to delve into stuff, and there are a lot of encouraging people here as well!

    Thanks. And, all I did, was turn his legs to the side man. The knee joints are in the tank and humVee, dso the way you have his legs turned doesn't matter. It's a lot better that way though bc the screw holes don't make the cotch plate want to pop off anymore.

    Thanks a ton boss!

    Honestly, a lot of people were saying from the get go that these two were for battle gaia, and that's what got my brain rolling. Then I actually saw pics, and was like, "He looks pretty damned cool black."

    hahahaha. We'll see about that. I literally sat around for DAYS going back and forth about potentially fucking THIS set up. I don't know how bad I'd freak out over the thought of fuckig up $600.

    And once again thanks guys. There's quite a bit of paint app'ing yet to do, but hopefully it's all done by tonight.

    Looks pretty good in black. Any other mods/colors that we're not seeing?

    be nice to see him painted up as the rid decepticon commandoes and their combined form of ruination

    by the way in case your thinking about giving him a g1 style chestplate did you know that energon skyblast can be used to serve as a modern day classcs style updated breastplate for bruticus/battlegaia/ruination?

    only drawbacks to the idea


    the tricky part is finding a way to build a two part connector port into skyblasts back and the front of bruticus/battlegaia/ruinations body

    with the other two being that its tricky at best to mod skyblast so that he hasa set of fully posable legs with a solid set of knee joints

    that and finding a way to swap out skyblasts for a seeker con starscream head

    other then that thugh i actually think skyblast makes for a good breastformer style drone parter breast plate add on for bruticus/battlegaia/ ruination

    "Always bet on black." :thumb 

    Nice work TJ looks very cool. Takes some guts to custom a pricey upgrade set too. :)  But then if I had 6 sets I might say "Why not?" too. LOL if I had 6 sets. SMH

    @Comp - Nope: Thank goodness, this one's jstu a straight repaint. I still have to do his blaster and whatnot, but, the bot itself was good as of this morning when I left to work. Just need to clear coat it.

    @Gen - Thanks for the tips. I don't want a chestplate on him, but it's cool that other bots can be used as one! That's amazing!

    @Satomi - Ooooo, that'd be nice.

    @OC - Thanks bro! And yea... a lot of money waisted, but hopefully I can get a few of these pawned off pretty soon to help fund some things
