During the photo shoot, Vortex was attacked by a giant feline monster!
Woah! Help!!!

Onslaught tried to help...
"Die furry monster!!!!"

 ...but was attacked too.
"Aahhhh! Oh no! It caught me!! My cannons are breaking!!!"

"Aahhhh! It's consuming me!!! Help!!!"

"Let's get out of here!! Retreat!!"

"Quick!!! Form Bruticus before it finds us!!!!"

"Alright, now where's that f*ck*ng furball."

"Hey, can I join the fun?"


Alright, let's see what you've got.

The Rise of Bruticus: Part 5 - More Bruticus

Note: Previous entry is here

This is the current update for the upgrade units, code name: FlameBlast and WarCry.
Some minor changes... 

...but they are really just recolored versions of Swindle (Munitioner) and Blast Off (Explorer)

This gives Bruticus a whole new dimension when combined - something I'm not really a big fan of.
I really don't get it...

This is another 3rd party / fan made upgrade, a chest plate armor... I'll pass. 

An Army of Bruticus... Megatron's dream.

Now, this is another 3rd party version. Epic, but too much...

This is the current official design based on the game Fall of Cybertron...
I'm not sure what happened to the design to look like this...

So, people are trying to improve this like the one below.
Yeah, sure...

Bruticus then and now...

As for me, I'm itching to customize Brawl to look like a legit tank. I used the old Blast off as a prototype.

Nice, eh? hehe.I'm still thinking how to form him into a left leg though. 

I guess that's all for me now, this should be the last in this Bruticus series...

or maybe not, hehe....

 Stay Tuned!


Feral Rex 
(This may take a while though... a very long long while... so don't count on it very soon... hehe)

The Rise of Bruticus: Part 4 - One Team, One Unit (Plus One more member)

Note: Previous entry is here

Initially, these two units were released separately. 

The version that I got came on a single box. 

It transformed this...

...into this.

And to form Bruticus...
Brawl transforms into a left leg,

Swindle into the right leg,

Vortex into a left hand,

Blast off into the right hand,

and Onslaught into the torso,

to form this.
I'm always at awe.

His first weapons are these pairs of back cannon...

Which can fold forward to become shoulder cannons.

He also has this anti material rifle.

Double shot guns,


He has this dagger (remember blast off's cleaver/sword?)

Which can also be held reversely although not securely.

Additionally, my set includes this extra gun w/c was not included in the initial release.

Which also transforms into a robot named QUAKE. 

It pays homage to a character named Shockwave during their encounter in this particular episode.

Looks nice, but for me, I don't like this gun because it can't be held securely.

Die pointless freebie!!!!!!!hehe.

Next time, on the final entry, we'll look at the different variations of Bruticus including this particular version.

Stay tuned!


Note: Part 5 is already here!
