- 1/20 Brutish Dog
Brutishdog, Fyana's personal Armored Trooper, is an advanced variation model of the standard ATM-09-ST Scopedog designed by the Secret Society in the "Votoms" universe, and a fitting entry in Bandai's line of "Votoms" plastic model kits!
With a level of detail and articulation akin to Bandai's Master Grade series, this kit boasts Bandai's ingenious "Bolt On Snap" feature, where you get the feeling that you're actually assembling an Armored Trooper by putting the tiny bolts into position with a small wrench! Talk about attention to detail! The bolts are used to hold external armor panels in place and will be visible after completion. Equally impressive is the incredibly detailed pilot cage produced on a four-piece slide-mold on a single runner. The Brutishdog's upper arms and lower legs feature inner mechanical details, and even the gatling gun mounted on its right arm comes complete with mechanical detailing underneath its exterior casing!
Upon completion, the Brutishdog is hyper-articulated right down to its individually poseable fingers. Every feature of the Brutishdog as seen in animated form is faithfully replicated in this kit, including its articulated iron claw right hand, working gliding wheels that pop in and out underneath both feet, working turn picks, spinning turret lens, and the ability to be posed in down form. Clear green and red jewel stickers are included for the lens, and foil stickers and water-slide decals are provided for custom markings. Two 1/20-scale Fyana figures, one standing and one sitting, molded on a white runner, are included, along with two types of heads, masked and unmasked. A fascinating kit that's both fun to build and play with! Highly recommended!

The Bandai Votoms models are my FAVORITE KITS out there. Excellent build, tight fits, tons of fun. I would place them as a MG level kit. Lots of pieces, lots of detail, and when finished stand at about 8” tall. Buy them if you can find them! I’m stocking up!
This has been one of my favorite builds so far. Lots of little appointments in detail really bring it to life. It felt a bit like actually assembling machinery. From the hydraulic shafts in the cockpit to putting actual tiny rivets in the armor with a tiny wrench-this is well worth the price.
