    Hi! Finally I finished this project! It started as a atempt to do a Bruticus custom but I decided to go into another direction, so... :rolleyes:  Here's the original thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/262314-classics-bruticus-wip-1-complete.html

    The first one is Armorhide. He's made using a Classics Deluxe Megatron, two part Epoxy to sculpt the head and a plastic tube to shape his arm cannon. He was painted with Tamiya's Luftwaffe Blue. His acessory was made using parts from Lego technics and KO Guard City crotch plate, painted with Tamiya' Silver Leaf.

    The second is Mo-vor. He's made from classics Astrotrain and Epoxy scult for the head. I actually cut his wing assembly and turned it into a shield. He was painted with White acrylic paint (White paint is EVIL!!! :banghead:  ), Tamiya' Silver Leaf and Tamiya' Black. His acessories are made from Lego technics and Neo-shifters.

    The third is Rollbar, made using Classics Hound. Head modified using epoxy sculpt and painted black. Acessories, again, from Lego technics. This one was the easiest of the group! :D

    Fourth one: Ro-tor! Made from Armada Cyclonus. Man, this was a tough one... Cyclonus was really hard to dismantle and paint, but I think it came out alright :inquisiti  Completely removed the stupid Spin gimmick and the powerlinx were also discarded. Painted with Tamiya' Navy Blue, white acrylics and Tamiya Red. Head modified with epoxy sculpt.

    And now, the monster himself: RUINATION! The connections were made using neo-shifters joints. I discarded the original idea of using minicons as the aditional kibble because I couldn't figure which ones would do the job, so... :rolleyes2 

    Also, by not using Unicron/Primus parts (mainly due to cost reduction) I was able to make a fully scramble-city style combiner! This bad boy have both the "Land Mission" and "Flight Mission" Configuration (or what ever are their names... :p  ), or even mix them limbs any way I want! I didn't take more pics 'cause a connection broke-off during photo-shooting... :cry 

    I had the most fun with this project, and now that I finally finished it, I move for the next one: Armored Battalion Dorvack!

    Thanks for viewing, and I accept any C & C!

    Yeah, I have some fond memories of Ruination! He's my first original G1 style gestalt (it was quite hard to have those kinds of toys over here in Brazil, like, 20 years ago, save for some REALLY cheap plastic KO's). Besides, I watched my very first eps of Car Robots way back in 2000 over here at TFW2005 and Rejoiced when I saw Vuldigus/Ruination in all his glory kicking some Autobot brothers @$$. :D

    Never thought those guys could combine that good!
    Really cool chap! I'd just give some extra love to Mo-vors head, all the others are pretty cool.

    Looking really nice. Ruination gets no love,and that's a shame. Ro-Tor is the best one. Kudos to you my friend.

    Dude sweet!
    No unicron parts = WIn

    This is a really awesome custom, and the fact that there is barely any kibble is fantastic.

    I know, Mo-vor's head looks a little bit meh... But was either that or a completely white look. But thanks for the tip :) 

    I'm glad you liked Ro-tor, 'cause he gave me A LOT of trouble while customizing him. Thanks for your coments!

    I have nothing against using Unicron/Primus parts into customizing, as they provide a better proportioned figure. But, as you said, the downside is the kibble left when the gestalt isn't combined. Besides, I don't have enough resources to use those parts as they're REALLY expensive. Thanks for your coments!
