    i think i may have found a suitable place to build energon shockblasts lower leg moutned missile batteries into fansproject bruticus

    take a look at bruticus's lower left arm on the helicoptor limb

    on the front of vortex's lower legs with the add on parts attached theres some empty space to work with when it comes to vortex lower legs through the front in combiner limb left arm mode

    with a bit of cutting and sanding to the energon shockblast parts i beleive it would be entirley possible to cut them down to the proper size and shape so that they could be epoxy glued into place on the front of vortex's lower legs jsut above his feet in vortex's robot mode

    the missile batteries salvaged from shockblast could instead serve as electromagenetic pulse emitters

    the only draw back to this would be that it would give the helicoptor form a bit of a cluttered look with the missile pods also attached in vortex's vehicle mode though it would give bruticus/battle gaia a bit more versatile set of in built weaponry to work with in a fight

    also have you considered using the lower arm mounted guns from fansproject superion maximus's add on set
    i find that with a very slight bit of sanding work to the gun plug handle that they fit quite well in nblastoff/explorer's /flameblasts hands

    they can also plug into place on the sides of his upper body in vehicle mode in a homage to the original shuttle limb blast off g1 figure

    Hahaha. I'm guessing that's a good wow, so thanks!

    hahaha. Look up Battle Gaia. He's just a different colored version of Ruination/Bruticus. Even G1, he's awesome!

    TRUTH! But honestly, I have NEVER seen a heavytread man. So insanely rare!

    Thanks man!

    Here's a pic I took a while ago for my galleries:

    [​IMG]

    I need to take a better picture of him, and I think I'll do just that tonight with the requested barricade pics.

    Could I ask you something? If I gave you a hundred bucks for the energon bruticus with the set & a accurate onslaught,could you sell it to me?

    Man that last pic looks awesome. That shot / your repaint for the copter's arms look flush, which is great given they usually stick out like a sore thumb.

    Keep an eye out for Heavytread at T.J. Maxx/Marshalls/Ross stores... apparently they've been spotted there along with other PCCs.

    ...considering that getting the FP upgrade set MRSPed at 100$... and now is *hard* to even get it for under $150 these days...

    I'm comforted knowing I'm not the only one who bought at least two sets of those upgrades. I admit I thought of what it would be like doing a Battle Gaia (particularly after Flameblast and Warcry were released) but I got scared off by the idea. Congrats on going for it and having that kind of success.

    Any chance we could get a picture of just the black parts and barricade in vehicle mode? I wish to mirror it but the black makes it difficult to really see what went where.

    Man, I seriously want to come over to your house to play. I just have the 1 FP Bruticus.

    This Battle Gaia is fantastic.
