This is my fan design + colours work of a War Within, Bruticus. I based my design from the Combaticon members in the comics which only showed their robot and alt modes, but unfortunately never showed an official gestalt mode design, which makes this project challenging.
With the colour process I used a wide range of references to find a happy balance between the War Within comic, toys, and cartoon material. It was interesting and a challenge to figure out decide how to integrate the design and colours into one and finalize it. I may perhaps change it in the future but for now I'm quite happy and satisfied with the result!

What do you think? Please let me know if you're interested!

Here's rgw blog entry: I tool the chance to feature the Combaticon files as well. I wonder if the Swindle model that I have included fits with your vision?

Fantastic Franco! Thank you for sharing with me and showcasing my designs more, I'm honored!
Yes I love Peter's take on the 4 Combaticons!
Great design for Swindle!
Hmmm, although my vision of WW Swindle is quite different, since I'm basing it on Don Fig's designs. I'm hoping to show you and everyone else it real soon!
But thanks a lot for sharing the blog, its really awesome, be in touch again soon!

You mean you have actually found some War Within Swindle official art around?
I've never managed to do that, besides some very small images from WW vol. 1

Yes, exactly what you said, 2 panels of him in WW Vol. issue 4, I'm using those to deisgn both the robot and alt modes.
