I’m continuing my holiday weekend long look at the new B2FIVE VOTOMS offerings from Beaver Ltd with the oh-so-awesome BRUTISHDOG ATM-09-GC!
Yesterday, I shared my SCOPEDOG ATM-09-ST Pictorial review that included the video below, showing the mighty BRUTISHDOG squaring up against the SCOPEDOG. Check it out –
Now, some may think that the BRUTISHDOG is nothing but a repaint, but it’s much more than that. Thanks to the fine folks at MAHQ for the intel –

Technical and Historical Notes
The ATM-09-GC Brutishdog is a variation of the standard ATM-09-ST Scopedogthat is designed by the mysterious Secret Society for use by Perfect Soldiers. The Brutishdog is outfitted with dual roller gliding wheels, as well as advanced sensor systems. Because of its complicated controls, normal pilots are incapable of using the Brutishdog. The Brutishdog’s armament differs from the Scopedogin several ways. The right arm has been outfitted with a combination weapon mounting a heavy Gatling cannon and iron claw hand. The arm punch has been removed from the right arm to accommodate the new armament, but the left arm can still use the arm punch. The Brutishdog is used by Perfect Soldier Fyana, who fights several battles against Chirico on planet Melkia’s Woodo City. When Fyana sides with Chirico, the Brutishdog is destroyed in combat by the Woodo police force.
Pilot: Fyana (aka Phantom Lady, Proto-One)
Appearances: Armored Trooper VOTOMS
Original mechanical designer: Kunio Okawara
As with the SCOPEDOG, the BRUTISHDOG comes in gorgeous packaging, with a window box showing the upper portion of the Mech. As with previous B2FIVE offerings, the Mech, Pilot and accessories are enclosed in a plastic clamshell, with vibrant colors and description throughout the packaging. This time around, however, the clamshell includes a warning about bending this and other figures too far backwards, as it can damage their uniforms.
What else is pretty cool is the inclusion of papercraft crates with the B2FIVE logo printed along the top.
The Engineers at Beaver LTD really hit a home run with the design of the BRUTISHDOG, as it really feels like so much more than just a basic repaint/retool. This piece makes you feel like the BRUTISHDOG jumped off of the screen and in to your lap. I love the way it lowers in to standby/docking position exactly like in the anime. Positioning it immediately gave me a flash of nostalgia. Before we check this awesome mech out, let’s take a look at its pilot, Fyana!
As with all B2FIVE offerings, Fyana’s articulation is incredible –

As Proto One, I love that she includes her Perfect Soldier helmet. I’m honestly in love with the VOTOMS series so far and I really look forward to what else we may get in the line. Now let’s sink our teeth in to the BRUTISHDOG!
The BRUTISHDOG comes equipped with all of the enhancements from the anime that distinguish it from just another SCOPEDOG. The BRUTISHDOG is outfitted with dual roller gliding wheels, the right arm has been outfitted with a combination weapon mounting a heavy Gatling cannon and iron claw hand. The arm punch has been removed from the right arm to accommodate the new armament, but the left arm can still use the arm punch. The Brutishdog is used by Perfect Soldier Fyana, who fights several battles against Chirico on planet Melkia’s Woodo City. When Fyana sides with Chirico, the Brutishdog is destroyed in combat by the Woodo police force.
I really love the look of the BRUTISHDOG and really appreciate the work that BEAVER Ltd put in to it. Again, the detailed paid to this piece really does it justice. It’s dual antennas hang off the size of the helmet, while it’s scope can rotate all 3 lenses.
One of the coolest aspects of the new VOTOMS line is its interchangeability with B2FIVE Acid Rain offerings. If you add the SCOPEDOG to your collection, then do yourself a favor and make sure to add a BRUTISHDOG to your cart at the same time. They both look fantastic together! Plus, they really work well at this scale. You can get yours at B2FIVE Shop here:
Now stay tuned, as tomorrow I’ll be wrapping up the wave 1 series with a look at both Expansion packs, the SCOPEDOG RED SHOULDER CUSTOM ATM-09-RSC set and the ROUND MOVER ATC-BR1-S set!
