    hi there,

    Just a quick note that this guy is listed up on ebay for those that are intrested to bid or just curious what he gets :) 

    I have finally finished my custom bruticus transformer. Ok here is a bit about him, he is 19 inches tall and
    is by far the biggest and most complex custom i have ever made, he is designed to fit perfectly in scale next to
    the classics / henkei / generations line.

    Bruticus is extremely articulated and here is a list of his articulation
    - main head is ball jointed
    -shoulders are very posable, 360 degrees as well as tilting up and down
    -elbows bend
    -upper arms rotate
    -wrist is ball jointed
    -hands are extremely posable whith each finger being balljointed as well as a second pin joint
    -waist rotates 360 degrees
    -hips are highly articulated swinging in and out as well as back and forward, ratcheted joints too.
    -knees are posable
    -lower leg pivots
    -ankle pivots to provide dynamic posing too
    -the wings on his chest shield also swing in and out to allow for greater
    movement (plus its a really cool gimmick :) 
    -and his hip armor also swings in and out to allow dynamic leg posing.

    Bruticus also comes with three heads the first is very closely modeled on the gen one head, the second
    has angry eyes and the third has a variation on the eyes, all three are included so you can choose
    which you prefer, (i like the angry eye version)

    i have made two scratchbuilt giant guns for bruticus based on the gen one rifle, he actually only ever had one
    gun on the show but i like him with two :)  each one is huge too.

    now for the individual robots, bruticus is completely transformable.all the individual robots transform
    without having to take away parts or add parts on (they are NOT partformers)

    -onslaught has individually posable giant scratchbuilt cannons in truck mode that are on bruticus's back in combined
    mode (note: you dont have to remove and replace the cannons in combined mode, they transform to the correct configuration),
    you can also pose these cannons up in onslaughts robot mode but i prefer them down.he also has a new
    scratchbuilt head

    -vortex has removable blades and a secret hidden weapon that converts into a hand held shoulder mounted
    missile launcher. he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head (when transforming into
    bruticus arm mode the only thing you have to add is the hand, everything else is part of the transformation)

    - blast off comes with a hidden weapon too which can be transformed into a battle axe (this is my fave
    weapon :)  he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head (when transforming into
    bruticus arm mode the only thing you have to add is the hand, everything else is part of the transformation)

    -brawl was heavily modified to make him look gen oneish with brand new arms etc his secret weapon is
    created from his tank barrel and is a hand held bazooka.he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head

    -swindle was also heavily modified to look gen one ish and i really like him alot. he comes with a roof
    mounted double cannon that brakes apart into two hand held blasters,he is extremely posable and comes with a new scratch built head


    well i hope you like him, bye bye

    Wow, I LOVE it, Bruticus has a special place in my heart, and unlike most other combiners, the individual robots get me just as excited as the combined form. Nice choices on all of the molds! Really took me a min to realize where Blast-off and Vortex came from, great work!

    Using the RID trainbot for BlastOff is nothing short of genius!

    Bravo!

    They all look great!

    To make Vortex out of a train takes some pretty crazy thinking. I love it. :)

    WHAT?!?! Holy crap man! This is the best custom Bruticus I've ever seen! The base mold choice is freaking genius! The styrene work is impeccable! The combined mode proportions are dead on!

    Wow. So much to say but I'm kind of dumbfounded.

    Dude, this is EPIC!! I see a lot of cool bots and parts used in this and is that another RID/Car Robots trainbot used for Vortex?! I also love how Onslaught turned out! Damn, this makes me want to use that mold for mine now. lol

    Excellent work!

    Didn't even ralize Vortex was one of the other RID trainbots, even cooler.

    You've simultaneously solved the equal arm proportions and elbow joints by using RID trains. That's superior engineering my friend.

    I've contemplated using Cybertron Mudflap before for Onslaught, I'm happy to see it looks great as Onslaught.

    By far the best Bruticus I have EVER seen. I just love how he looks like one giant robot and not a bunch of smaller figures combined together. This is exactly how it should be done.

    Great work, my friend!
