    Funny how bad this figure already wanted to be brawl, just for the existing Fansproject Bruticus set. It only took some light mods and a repaint.
    This has been done by many people in many ways, but I don't know who was first to give credit to.
    For this commission version I went with metallics for a nicer and more realistic looking tank mode. Minicon was painted to be incorporated into the set too as Brawl's little buddy.

    Looks great, but how did you implement the combiner port into the design. Is it just added for the combining step? I'd love to see some more details.

    Yes sir. I removed the connector part from Vortex, filled the holes on the sides with sculpt, then later drilled holes to fit the pegs on the inside of Heavytread's legs which make the rear of the tank.
    The combiner port is an extra part for tank mode and combining.
    The knee works great for display but of course it isn't a strong ratcheting joint that would support extreme poses well.

    Metallic green? Neat - I'd not considered that for this character, but it looks good -- similar to Takara's take on the Generations line.
