    Work In Progress Bruticus 30% done

    As the title says, I am currently working on a Bruticus combiner.
    Let's hope, as my second combiner, that it ends up better than
    my last attempt at one seen here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/576903-wip-combiner.html *Shudders* Let's just not mention it.
    Newer stuff up here, older stuff down there.


    UPDATE!

    [​IMG]
    Here we have the Big Bad Battlin Dudicus himself. He's far from done, but HE CAN STAND! I might pose him later, when I find a good way to actually attach Brawl's foot.


    Anyways, as you can see, I am only about 30% done with the entire thing. [​IMG]
    I slightly modified a G1 Bruticus head for this and [almost] completely scratchbuilt the chestplate. I'm kind of trying to go for an 'Earthmode FOC Combaticons' feel, but also give them a kind of G1 feel.
    [​IMG]
    As you can see here, I don't have much for 'Brawl' in his leg mode, but I gave him a small Styrene foot for now. I'm trying to figure out where to put the Bionicle/combiner/whatever connector on the PRID Optimus leg for him, as well as 'Swindle'
    [​IMG]
    I'm still debating on whether or not to use this as Swindle's leg mode, or folding his lower legs down as if he were in Robot mode for a slightly longer leg mode.
    [​IMG]
    Right here, is all I have for the Gestalt mode that can connect together. I put a Bionicle ball joint
    in Blast Off's chest and a Bionicle port... thing onto "Onslaught's" shoulder. Also, I need ideas on who to use for Vortex.
    [​IMG]
    And then we have Blast Off, who I scratchbuilt, as you can no doubt tell. He is my first attempt at a scratchbuild, and he is far from done. I need to sculpt, or find him a proper head, as do all of my Combaticons.
    [​IMG]
    His space shuttle mode isn't that bad, but it obviously isn't seamless.

    Thanks for Looking! I will update this eventually, and hopefully frequently!

    Thanks! I'll upload better pics soon. I didn't realize how dark they were until after I uploaded them.

    Thank you! It took me a while, but I at least have the base done for it.

    Nope. All I used for him was some hinges off of PRID Cliffjumper, a pair of arms from cyberverse Sentinel Prime, the chest, waist and upper legs of an Energron Strongarm, and an old Space Shuttle model I had lying around.

    Thanks! I'm gonna be painting him a bit today, so expect an update!.

    You know you can edit your posts right?

    I agree that the pics are a bit dark, but I love where this is going. I also dig the work you've done on Blast Off! Nice work--keep it up!

    interesting combination. :)  the ball joints from bionicle seem like a good direction. I think you can take this to the next level since its non transformable and just make him incredibly beefy.U can make this dude go at it with hercules :)  sorta like in the g1 the three way battle of the combiners

    Thank You! And I will!

    I'm not gonna lie, he looks pretty awesome right now.

    Well, actually all the figures will retain their original transformations with the exception of Blast Off and Vortex since Blast Off is already scratch-built, and Vortex most likely will be too, so beefing him up is unfortunately out of the question. As for having him fight the other two, I can't afford Herc but MAYBE I might make more combiners.
