    Ever since I saw Heavytread he screamed brawl to me. Nutahal's idea is sound and a great place to start but I wanted brawl to be a bit more centered on the foot like GENOZAUR segested on Nutahal's thread. It took some doing but, yes, using the front of eather energon brawls or ROTF bawls tank for does work. I plan on going in the same direction as Nutahals to conect it to Bruticus but want to order a connector from jpaxson on shapeways. Then finding a joint to use. Anyway, hears were I'm at so far. Sorry for the pics, took them with my droid.

    One more thing, qestion for all you Radicon followers. As you see i used the energon front. You guys think I should hack into my ROTF Brawl fo a more matching color sceam or leave it as is?

    That's me, ps. The energon connectors on my Shapeways page are adapters designed to attach Energon Prime's drone limbs or Wing Saber appendages to Energon combiner figures such as ROTF Onslaught. I'm actually trying to design a new connector part specifically for this mod.

    Yes. It should socket on to Onslaught's energon peg fine, but you'd still have to modify it to attach to Heavytread. You can refer to this post to see what it looks like.

    Are you creating an adapter for heavytread to connect to the foot as well?

    I'm only working on a better energon connector at this point. I need to find/buy a Heavytread before I do anything else.

    possible mod to give heavytread/brawl a rachet jointed combiner port

    salvage a 2 part plug stud and O-ring from energon storm jets left or right outside inside shoulder set

    and using a lego knight rachet joint build the ratchet joint into the back of heavytreads vehicle mode to serve as a kneejoint with the O-ring serving as the combiner port on the ratchet joint

    and the raised plug stud part being usd to replace the combiner stud on the bottom of bruticus's upper leg

    that way the plug stud and O-ring parts serve as a proper two part combiner port for brawl
