    Im a big Bruticus collector and have been working to get all the g1 recolor that had come out during the years but there has been a glaring hole that has been a problem.

    Battle Gaia

    Instead of spending the equivalent of a down payment on a car in order buy this rare figure im going to repaint and deco an existing Bruticus.

    As if right now im trying to work out making my own stickers since no one online seemed to have them.

    Ignore the fact that they stickers are on a urban camo variant, hes just a guinea pig for making the labels.
    I plan to repaint a normal Us Ruination to the correct colors.

    Update: Finished, have some before and after

    Will you configure him as the first pic, or this one.

    Looking very good so far. Are you able to make more labels if there is any demand?

    Yeah that shouldnt be an issue. Wonder how much demand there could be.
    Wouldnt think much with how obscure the character is.

    That looks amazing!! I agree with Hooper_x it looks like it was made in the factory. The paint apps are beautiful, and color matched perfectly. Great Job!!

    Thanks everyone! ^u^
    That was my goal to make it look as legit as possible and be apart of my bruticus mold collection.
    Only one I have left is the g2 colors

    Really well done man, it’s nice to have a good look at something at least close to the real one. Do you think you could do some photos of the individual robots?
