    I agree. I prefer a more "thick" Bruticus but I keep hoping they would do a version of this for Victorion/Mega Empress. I haven't bought one of these Brut kits cause I have the oversized Warbotron one that is almost perfect for me and instantly replaced the CW Brut I "kind of liked."

    But a Vicky/Empress version? I would totally buy the FUCK out of these two kits!

    I think they made a Victorion kit based on the Defensor one, but it completely deviates from what Victorion's style is, and by extension Megatronia's.

    Or was that the other company? I can't remember...

    That was the C++ one, I'm thinking of picking that one up for an Inferno.

    Actually I remember now both did one, but I was also wrong in the sense that it deviated. The C++ one deviates, while the TDW one is rather similar.

    Transform Dream Wave - TCW-02 CW Defensor Add-on Kit

    It could work in black, but alas...they never made one...

    I have been trying to locate a post but am having trouble. Someone had posted they had a set of the thigh fillers for Onslaught and Hot Spot from the TDW kits they were looking to get rid of. I was interested in snagging them but I can't find where it was. Does anyone remember seeing this and could point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    Will this work on a KO Bruticus?

    Should be, they're 1:1 with no differences mold wise from what I've seen.

    If it's made like the ko hotspot, the post the new thighs slide on need to be shaved down.

    I just got the G2 kit in, first time trying this thing and, um, has anyone not been able to get the standard legs off at all? I don't mean the disassembly of the thighs, I mean getting the standard legs off of the mushroom joint at the hips? Mine do not just swivel off with a few turns. I even tried disassembling the hip joints, but that does absolutely nothing.

    I'm eyeing the G and B kits for my G2 Bruticus and Baldigus. Aside from sanding the pegs for the arms, it seems like the sets are pretty decent? Plastic quality is pretty good? I seem to recall that was a criticism with the initial Bruticus / Defensor ones.

    Would love to get one for my Victorion as well, too bad they didn't do one for that set. They'd make for a nice display trio on my shelf (they already do, but if I'm going to upgrade two of them, I might as well upgrade all three).

    The scariest part is that you need to break a glued peg at each knee. I don't like the resulting gap, but I think it's well worth the tradeoff.

    (Note: Head, back guns and purple gun are not from the TDW kit)

    Really like this kit. The silver and white head really looks evil. Don't like the gun tips, prefer the PE guns as you can see. IMG_20190122_132716811~2.jpg IMG_20190122_132809547~2.jpg

    It's hard to tell but the extra thigh pieces are on there, I still dont remember doing any leg surgery though, talk about twilight zone, the one thing I didnt like about the TDW upgrade is it killed the ability to use Shockwave, now only one of my 4 Brutes has a Shockwave being held

    You can pick up a KO PE kit on eBay for about $10 with the Shockwave adapter. That's what I did.

    That's where the head and back guns on mine came from. Two kits, actually; one for a black head and one for silver guns.
