    Hey Guys, it's been a while.

    For the past few days I've been on fall break, I've found myself working on this guy. In the same vein as the Mini Menasor I did a while back, it's a g1 gestalt redone with one legends figure and 4 mini-cons.

    For Bruticus, I've wanted to improve on what I did with Menasor. I.E. much more articulation, better connections, and overall badassery. So far, I think I've accomplished it.

    I'm mainly posting this because I want to know what you guys think about the proportions. The legs seem a tiny bit long to me, but I think they work out ok.


    UPDATE 10/20/09:

    Decided to beef up thighs using those from Armada Thundercracker. It also gets rid of some of the lego-ness from this bash as it's a bit heavy in that department.

    I cut sections out of the chest shield to make it look more g1-y and added another piece to the crotch.

    Started construction on its right arm. Have a ways to go still, but Blast Off fits on there just fine.

    Note, the Twin Twist head is temporary, but I think I'm going to use it. I just need to put some styrene on the sides and give it a mouthplate. I'm just worried it will be a bit small.

    Sadly, no. This guy was put on the back burner because of college and it's still sitting there. I have another project I want to finish up first, but this could be the motivation I needed to finish it.
