    Well after ordering a 1/200 Space Shuttle nd Nasa Transport
    i finally got it 2day:) 
    BUT!...the problem is that the Space shuttle is just a little smaller than a scout class figure:cry  and the plane it self is the right size:(  BUT! again, i was discussing with my friend which im makin the Bruticus for him, i could change Blast-Off a bit :) 
    Soo iv decided to use them both, combine them to form a completely DIFFERNT type of Blast-Off :D 
    i just want to get some feedback form you guys too see how you feel about the idea :) 

    well got the camera workin lost all my other pics:( 
    but i just took a pic to compare Swindle n WIP Vortex next to the kit(as wikkid asked)
    [​IMG]

    now i ran into a snag again, idn what to use for a base?
    i was going to use a Movie Overcast,but i need somethin thinner
    any ideas?

    Well iv been workin on ideas n everything for a while soo i decied to make him a swordsmen
    and also iv worked out the Chest plate for Bruticus involving the Shuttle n the Planes wings
    and the Wings will also be his Blades
    What you guys think?

    Well iv added a pic of what im going to use as Bruticus head its a Neo-Shifter, the newer wave, i think it looksl like Bruticus if he were in the movie:)

    Soo if anyone has anyideas please be free to type it down or even better sketch it out that would doo me such a BIGG favor becuase im more a Visual guy i understand things better when drawn down lol:D

    Sounds Awesome!! You could really make a brute (no pun intended) if they combined! Would you do it Duocon style, where they separate? Or would they stay connected and just fold into a big 'ol bot? Either way, I'd love to see ya have a go, I'm a big fan of your design aesthetics, they are so different than mine!:thumbs2:

    Thanks big hank! im also lookin forward to see you Bruticus Minimus
    Well the idea of the Duocon is exactly how i want it to work out:) 
    and yes they will be able to separate, and im also going to give the bot some serious weaponry :D

    Cool idea. I'm looking forward to seeing it. I was trying to do something with these two:

    But Astrotrain would essentially be a targetmaster...his train mode changed into a gun or armor for Jetstorm.

    I think a target master would be a good idea. A space shuttle is almost gun shaped already.

    are you trying to go deluxe size for blast off? Maybe a classic seeker for the parts, but I'm not sure if thats thin enough. Have you thought about using bionicle or neo shifter parts? neo shifters are probably too large for a deluxe, but a small bionicle might work

    Hmm, I could see it. Jumbo as the arms and legs, shuttle as the torso and head, sort of Super Ginrai style. Or RiD Landfill, that'd work too.

    Or put a foot on the end of each end of the jet like Midnight Express, have the area where the wings attach form the lower half of the robot torso, and use the shuttle for the upper torso, head and arms.

    All kinds of possibilities!

    I can visualize that! :cool: And using the actual altmode parts to form Bruticus' chest plates is a great idea for two reasons:

    1. It justifies where the chest plate comes from, because it's altmode parts.

    2. It save's you from having to create one, at least in the total scratch build sense. I'm sure you will still have to engineer out a way to connect them all.:thumbs2:

    That actually sounds like an awesome idea! Any way that you can integrate the "extra parts" into their vehicle modes in some way is aces in my book.
