Just a local Hawaii boy that is into G1 Transformers - Transformers classics, Unite Warriors, Generations etc, Hawaii and mainland hikes, travels, and anything he feels like writing. It's my life. Best viewed in web page format.
Combaticons, merge to become Bruticus! Amid some of the issues discussed in part I, does combined form Bruticus fare any better? Well, that's why you are here, right? Nah, you are here to see the pics. Anyhow, let's get started!
Official look and combined form
Ah, yes. Flex them muscle.
Two words: Simply awesome! Bruticus stands pretty well this time around. Defensor had some wobbly hips and Menasor, well, was just bad when it came to standing. The toon colors are painted nicely and I definitely love his 4 bladed look on his left arm (Vortex). Superion, imo, still poses the best though Bruticus is a huge improvement over Defensor and Menasor. In case if you didn't notice by now, Swindle's and Brawls leg is color-coded the same. You can actually mess with Brawl's turret here. You can raise it knee length or lower it. Your move.
The day was raining before but that didn't deter us from going to Lulumahu Falls. Thank God there was some parking left when we got there. It was roughly 10AM that day. When you get to the gates, there is a slashed fence section to the left. Just go in. If you come across a bamboo forest while walking, don't go in there. When you hit this green hill-like area, you may have to get dirty a little. After you climb this portion (1st pic). Just go all the way to your right until you encounter some stairs. Go up those to make life a little easier.
Once you get to the top, you will encounter the Nu'uanu resevoir. Just follow the path to your right until you hit a grafitti wall. Take some pics, admire it, whatever you like.

You will see some steps across the wall, go up and begin your hike. It's very muddy especially after it rained the previous day. You will encounter stream water. From this point on, you are going to criss cross between rocks and muddy land a few times before you hit the actuall fall. It's probably going to be at least a 30mins hike to the fall. Have fun!
