    Got this d00d figured out. The arms are visible in coptor mode but will be covered with the cannons which will be permanently connected.

    Step 1: Open side doors.
    2: Swing up nose.
    3: Extend legs.
    4: Raise feet.
    5: Rotate cockpit to form lower legs.
    6: Swing arm and tail sections down.
    7: Rotate fusalage.
    8: Lift head into place.
    9: Swing tail sections back. (Kinda like MP Starscream)
    10: Pose all actiony an stuff.

    Now on to cleaning up all the gobs and filing in open areas. Building the chest and getting the Bruticus hand to mount are first on the list though.

    This ones only got an Alt Skids and an Energon....uh... tank combiner guy. (Can't remember his name) First time I've managed to get away with destroying so few others just to built one guy.




    [​IMG]

    Right now he's taped to the wall as the Bruticus feet are not attached/fully built. I'm amazed at how strong those Energon connectors are as they hold tight even on an Alternators scale.

    Thanks for all the compliments d00ds. This suckers been two years in the making and a great learning experience.

    Vortex is really . . . .

    *chik chok chook chok chik*

    Alternators Skids!

    Alt Skids had this to say in regards to his awesome new costume: "Happy Halloween, Radicons! I'm going as Vortex this year instead of a retail release! I hope I get lots of Energon goodies!"

    Hehe, great work, buddy! You really have outdone yourself with the engineering on this project! I can't wait to see him finished! :thumb

    This of course is an amazing custom in itself, and i've seen your other posts for brawl and swindle as you were working on them, BUT......
    After just seeing your photobucket link to your Bruticus HOLY PLASTIC, this is going to be phenominal. Can't wait wikkid. I've got to go find your onslaught though, I never knew you already did him.

    Weopons now added.

    His right arm features the gatling gun made from three Megatron barrels. The assembly rotates as the actual gatling gun would. When not in use, they stow alongside the arm, but when it's time to kick some ass, they swing down and the handle turns inwards so his hand can grasp it.

    The left arm features the missle rack. They also rotate, as does the handle.

    When in coptor mode, the handles swing to the underside of the chopper. The weopon payloads can be removed when he forms Bruticus' arm.
