    So this started out as a simple commission for Simified. He wanted a head for his Fansproject Colossus Unit cuz that one was waaaaay too small. So After seeing the head' I felt the unit was missing something. Chestpiece!
    It is made from a G1 Bruty chestpiece and styrene. It attaches to the front of Onslaught, NO MODDING NEEDED!! I will be maiking this available as a kit or seperate pieces. PM me for inquiries. THESE PICS ARE OF THE ROUGH MASTER. NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCT. I will be filling and sanding so that the finalized product will be flawless. I have added a couple pics with the original head for size comparisson.

    Could you show a demo of the chestpiece on a Bruticus with the original FP head?

    Thanks Pool!

    Unfortunately I don't have the FP set. I just had the front end of Onslaught and I made the set using measurements from someone who has it. I had the original head sent to me for connecting solutions but here are some pics below with the original head.


    Hopefully I can get someone to shoot some pics of it on the rest of the piece.

    Thanks dude. Should be available soon!

    Oh the chest design is GENIUS, I don't know why no one thought of that before, "keep the shillouette, but have it WRAP around" JUST what he needed.

    But, of course, we'd expect nothing less from ya ;) 

    You KNOW I'm interested in gettin' one of these :)

    This is looking sweet,
    add me to the list of people who want these 2 peices.

    Also since allot of us can not afford the fans project set,
    or just missed out on them by timing.

    How about you do some G1'esc hands & feet next,
    for those of us still using 2 helicopters as arms, and 2 tanks as legs.

    Scramble is working on this.

    Check out the feet:

    Shoulder Blocks:

    Energon Shoulder PortX2 by edwein81 on Shapeways

    Still no hands for Energon. But he has hands for PCC commanders and connector blocks to use them as arms for Energon torsos.
