    As the title say this kitbash is inspired by SkyQuake's own Brawn. I had an extra modded Cliffjumper that no one seemed interested in buying so I figured hey I can make a pretty sweet Brawn with a little more modding. I just got some grey paint the other day, which was a perfect match to the grey factory paint. Oh and I also took the liberty of painting the gas cap grey and I painted over the S7 logo. Enjoy!

    Not the cleanest job but I'm happy with it.

    Great job! I plan on doing something similar with my Energon Strongarm (don't have the movie version of this guy). I've always wanted to crank out a Brawn from this toy since it was released during Energon--I just never took the time to attempt it. I always wanted to see some different takes on it, so it's cool to see your version after seeing SkyQuake's. Keep up the great work, man.

    Thanks. I always thought of this guy as Brawn but now it feels like him too.

    On a side note I got a new camera so my pics are better but I'll be building a light box as soon as I can get to the store and buy some extra lamps

    Great job! I like how you removed the Bumblebee detailing on the forehead. I debated on putting the helmet guards around the face myself, but thought it removed too much detailing along the sides. You've done this very well, and rounded the edges of the helmet more like the original Brawn.

    Thumbs up! :)

    To answer your question, it's the target exclusive movie scout strongarm from the wave 2 assortment. The grey is Citadel brand fortress grey

    For some reason, I think he looks like Murderface.
