    To transform him, first flip up the grill and remove the cannon and tire.

    Transform the legs same as Alt Hound/Swindle/Rollbar.

    [​IMG]
    Flip seats around to back. Turn rockers inwards then lower the steering wheel..

    [​IMG]
    Pull fenders out. They are made from Alt Sideswipe arms. Rotate waist

    [​IMG]
    Curl forearms into position.

    [​IMG]
    Drop chest, put windshield down and attach weopon. The tire mounts to the seats now located on his back.

    Still needs some touchups such as the eyes an whatnot, but this is pretty much the finished version. The clear coat is heavily matted this time around. The colour is just a single tinter pulled from the shelf

    Here's a quick whack together of the Bruticus form. Swindles foot extension will also get a (Widebody) kit to make the proportions better.

    Looks nice. Bruticus looks pretty cool..but obviously rather incomplete. Can't wait to see it ALL done.

    Looking at your proposed combiner, I'd like to make a small suggestion:

    When I combined my Combaticons to form Bruticus, I always had Brawl and Vortex as the arms, and here's why: Brawl's cannon was an obvious choice to form an arm cannon for the gestalt mode, and Vortex's rotors would act as a shield of sorts. With that, Swindle and Blast Off didn't really offer any perks in vehicular mode that could top those two choices. But hey, that's just me. Perhaps you could work that into your custom? In my opinion, it would be awesome to see.

    In any event, the custom looks great thus far. Keep up the impressive work!

    - Alty

    Wow dude, that's really kick-ass! Nice work! Can't wait to see how you pull off Vortex and Blastoff (and by proxy, Bruticus!).

    Very Nice work. Asstated above cant wait to see it completed. I have strong hopes that the new Classics Onslaught will be a Combiner to form Bruticus.

    ROCK on man! I LOVE the transform for Swindle. Onslaught and Brawl rock as well (I distinctly remember you posting em. Keep working on Bruticus; you'll get him figured out. :wink:  Great job man! :thumb

    Robot mode looks a little off (the placement of the grille could've been a bit higher IMO - but don't listen to me, I'm nobody, especially in the kitbashing world), but otherwise ABSOFRICKINAWESOME!

    Good work. The decals look great and that striping on his legs is very clean. To cool for school.

    This custom is amazing. I trued to use the same water sticker on my Alt Swindle but it didn't quite work out. The way you made this guy transform is fantastic. Very G1, very fresh, and very awesome
