    So I know I took some liberties with the colors, and probably need a bit more detail work, but sometimes these things need to marinate a bit before I complete them.

    The story is he is a Tripredacus Agent, sent back to do or undo something or other. Much like his Beast Wars counterpart.

    Oh and any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

    That looks great. Paint apps look clean & crisp.
    Color combo is very nice, Detail are not over the top.
    The only thing I can see you may want to change is the windows.
    The all black torso is......... well too black.
    Maybe break it up with some of the grey you used.

    Totally dig this figure. Like Nemesis said though a little coloration on the window would be nice. Also did you thinkabout changing the yes color to red? That might just show hes a little more evil than the blue yes!

    None the less great job on him!

    I would say do the windscreen in silver, dark blue, or a cool grey. It breaks up the chest but keeps the stealthy feel.

    Donno, I like the all black torso. Looks more like a sleek black kitty. I'd have preferred green or yellow eyes, but that's just my favourite cat colours :tongue:

    Hey thanks for the comments/feedback. Looking back I see a lot of areas for improvement, and I forgot my whole inspiration for this guy was the cat-like headlights and "hip" rockets.

    So I'll be adding a "cat" pupil across each headlight and a hint of a triangular "nose" in the grill. I'll revise the pics soon. The idea that his "cat" mode is his vehicle mode now. And the face...I know there's no hiding Bumblebee with that head/face, but I don't have the gusto to start sculpting.

    Thanks again for posting. Also I posted two WIP pics of him in basic black.

    Call me crazy, but what about painting/spraying the turbo booster/rocket things a nice chrome. You said yourself those are what gave you a partial idea for this piece. Plus, it would add a nice contrast without ruining the "stealth" feel too much, i guess.
