The Brutishdog is a unique custom version of the Scopedog. It is first seen in the Uuodo City (1st story arc) Battling Arena. It is seen through most of the series, and is the personal mech of Fyana / The Phantom Lady.
The changes made from the basic Scopedog include a gatling gun right arm with Iron Claw (metal bit), dual gliding wheels on the heel, and an ammo back pack with a spring loaded “Pez like” ammo dispenser.
Like all the 1/12 VOTOMS from Yamato the back pack pegs are present and all accessory packs will work with any of the models. The Brutishdog is built using the newer design for the Scopedog body with tighter joints, and much better ankles for holding dynamic poses.
News from a Yamato representative states that a Fyana action figure will be available in June (July US), and a generic soldier action figure will be available in August (September US) to warm the seats of all the Armored Trooper variants coming out. There’s also a new accessory pack schedule for September (October US) in the form of a Red Shoulder Custom pack. No further details yet, but I would imagine this will come with the shoulder mounted missile box, left forearm rifle, and the waist mounted rocket launcher and gatling gun. Now here’s to hoping for a Standing Tortoise body to start those variants rolling in.
