    Extra notes:
    This custom is made from CW Hot Spot, Onslaught, and RID Optimus Prime.
    I remembered seeing another person's RID Prime custom that had parts that resembled the original figure, but made for CW Hotspot. I tried doing a search on Shapeways, but to no avail. I have theorized that the parts were either from the Kabaya kit, a personal custom, or s KO I don't know about. So I went with Onslaught's chest.

    Surprised how well the SFC chest fit onto the rest of the figure. BTW, I used Onslaught's combiner pieces for this figure.

    Combined mode (with CW Autobot Brothers and Tiger Track)

    First time I put this thing together.
    Would've let them stay in this mode, but I fear that the paint would stick together and would be a pain to take apart.

    Hope you like it. Took me a long time to do.
    C&C welcome

    The fact that HasTak hasn't given us this yet is a major crime, though this custom brings great justice to the table.

    You might even say it brings "Burning Justice" to the table...

    Man, you have created exactly what I wanted to do ever since I saw the CW Hotshot mold. Even your mold choices for the Autobot brothers was spot on. Have you given thought to the 4th limb? In my mind it was Ultra Magnus, using the Rook mold> It had a robot mode similar to RID and a alt mode similar to Animated.

    Just remember, for the chest to fit, I used Onslaught's combiner parts. The SFC head is on Bruticus's head post. The chest has Bruticus's post epoxies onto it. For you to fit the neck part onto the SFC chest, you need to slightly sand the sides a tiny bit and make the post holes bigger on the Bruticus part.

    This is awesome! Great job! (btw, I feel like the last limb should be, theoretically, Ultra Magnus)

    Mirage/Drag Strip redone into skidZ would work well for the left arm.

    I was just talking to a friend of mine yesterday about doing this. I love how the fandom sometimes has concurrent ideas. I also had thought of using Mirage as Skidz. Well done.
