    not satisfied with a static turret.
    recycled the kibble.
    cut off excess, only needed the middle section.

    the original latch for the turrect

    the trimmed off section acts as a port for the turret.

    drilled thru the port on the turret (highlighted in red).
    turret just plug in.

    turret turns left/right with no issue.

    the turret sits neatly as a backpack

    Nice work, especially on the traversable turret.

    With all due respect, I will be incorporating your tremendous turret mod onto my Brawl mold bots, as it will finally give that poor chunk o' plastic a purpose beyond propping up combiners. =) Awesome work sir!

    how brigadier ONslaught was waisted.

    a lego mini fig upper body was implanted in the crotch.

    another lego piece as connector in the chest cavity.
    40.jpg

    enough clearance is made for the head to rotate down.

    shaved off a bit behind the head piece to allow head to look up

    kitchen sink included
    32.jpg
    modded the crotch piece to be attached to the butt.
    this will allow brute's waist function

    ready for action

    Bravo sir!

    I usually don't permanently mod my figures but your Brawl and Onslaught mods look so tempting!

    and the last moron to follow suit
    minor mod on the main rotor.
    can be positioned on tail fin rotor but doesnt seems necessary.
    51.jpg
    snipped off the webbed missile for a better defined missile heads.
    52.jpg
    53.jpg
    main rotor re-positioned on top. using lego rod to plug into rear rotor.

    ruination completed. pic taken before vortex was painted.

    60.jpg
    blades can be positioned on top of shoulder or at forearm.
    i felt the blades at forearm will do just fine and with lesser work.
    just un-pin the main rotor housing. can plugged in firmly on forearm or during altmode.
