    Hasbro's bruticus sucks, and the 3rd parties one is too expensive, so I decide to make my own Bruticus!
    Here it is:

    damn that is pretty cool for a super cheap way to get a decent looking Bruticus. Are you gonna paint it?

    You say this is a minor mod? How are they sticking together then?

    That's pretty neat. How would it look if you left out the small Starscream? He seems kind of out-of-place to me...

    Actually I'm not gonna paint it, because Bruticus is quite colorful anyway. I would rather spend my time on a different combiner project, this time I aim at 4 deluxe class + V level for a new combiner. :D

    I used lego bionicle + Gundam parts to combine them, just re-use existing holes on the robots, I don't want to drill any holes to the existing transformers themselves, in this way I can keep the robots mostly unchanged.
    that's why I said it's a minor mod.

    I figure that Bruticus has a breast plate, and I have a small StarScream which missing feet, so why not use it. If without the small startScream, the body parts looks too similar to the Road Buster's robot mode in my opinion.

    Hah. That's pretty cool for such a minor mod of a few parts here and there. They're Cyberverse Commander figures right? (Aside from the Roadbuster of course.)

    Wouldn't call him Bruticus per say... but I would definitely say it's awesome.

    Yes 3 of them are from Cyberverse Commander figures, the right leg is from cybertron Brushguard.

    Oh yeah, I can see some Lego pieces when I look closer. Very clever.

    That's awesome! Starscream fits when you think about it. He did create Bruticus back in G1, just now he folded himself into the mix. :)

    i'm going to try that it seems pretty solid especially because bionicle limbs and connectors allow alot of motion

    Not really, after this, I want to do another combiner, lager size, to use the experience I gained from this 1st combiner project :)
