Update Page 2 This project goes back almost a year ago. I bought Bruticus Crapicus because I saw the Complete Brutality kit yourreflection had made,http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commissioner-listing-feedback/266590-kidbashs-corner.html. I say "Crapicus" because unaltered, in my opinion, this thing looked like crap! YR's kit was out before FansProjects was and it was AWESOME!!! I began working on a custom Blast Off and Brawl to replace the 2 limbs and bought an Energon Strongarm to replace Swindle. I wasn't thrilled with how Brawls fists were exposed in tank mode so I started working on a rocket launcher using toothpicks as missiles that would cover them also adding more fire power. I added a cannon and another gun mounted on the side that could also act as a gun while in robot mode. While in robot mode the cannon can has full range of motion and can swivel in any direction or store straight up when not in use for that G1 Brawl look. Fansproject came out with their upgrade kit after YR released Complete Brutality and my ultimate plan was to buy both kits. I wanted to mix and add elements from both of them. Unfortunately some things happened in my personal life and by the time I had the cash to buy YRs kit he was no longer making it. I ended up purchasing FP's kit which was great since I wasn't happy with the direction my take on Blast Off was going and FP's Swindle was a shoe in compared to Strongarm. I saw Carpools post, http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/422023-project-bruticus.html, and picked up a PPC Heavytread. Aesthetically it looks better than my Brawl and I wanted my Bruticus to be as G1 as I could get it. I did a minor mod to the chest and flipped it around. I didn't like how the cab stuck out so far, sort of made Bruticus look like he had boobs. I rotated the legs so I could widen his stance and bring the legs in a bit closer to lose that "bow legged" look. I slightly modded a G1 chest plate and added it also which was easy to do once the top half was reversed. The gun rack/back pack is held in place my styrene rods now. Vortexs' helicopter blades were removed and replaced with the G1 set. All that being said this is what I ended up with. All of my mods are finally done so now it's off to paint. I'm going to be doing a G1 paint job on all 5 Combaticons. I would like a little advice from everyone though on 2 things... First I saw these on Reprolabels... Reprolabels.com - Reprolabels.com - Should I just do a good looking paint job and skip the sticker upgrades or add them after I finish painting? Second, should I do a traditional G1 paint job or go the extra step and add some weathering details? I'm really torn on this and I can't make up my mind. I'd appreciate your guys thoughts and critics. Before I forget a very special thanks to YR! Without his imagination and creativity I would never had been inspired to have tackled this or even had bought the toy to begin with. Thanks to Carpool as well whose badass idea on using Heavytread made me scrap my own work.
