    (Hey guys, I'm back after a while, and it's time to play catch up.)

    I decided to actually give my Beast wars series a name "Beast Wars Zero" it is meant as both a descriptor (since this is a series of pre-beast wars bodies) a dumb pun of of Beast Wars Neo (The Japanese sequel series).

    Okay, what we have today is Unit 2, who would come to be known as Tigatron!
    Instead of making a white clone of my Cheetor/Cheater figure, I decided to make a completely new figure, I used a TFP Hotshot body and a TFP BH Knockout head (thankfully they use the same sized ball joint). I decided to make the majority of his body silver, but used pale green and black accent colors while using white as his shell color.

    (Side note: what appears to be silver paint on the headlights is actually light from my flash reflecting off of the plastic)

    I gave him the tfp Cliffjumber gun like I did my Cheetor, the idea being that it is the standard issue weapon, Cheetor has it because he is fresh from the academy, Tigatron has it because he's never needed anything else. It also links Cheetor and Tigatron together like in the show (They had the same weapon)

    Okay that's it for now guys! Coming up next: Rhinox!

    Looks good. If you were do do tiger stripe decals that would complete the look.

    I am trying to avoid things like that under the premise that since this is pre Beast Wars they wouldn't have a reason to have animal-like color patterns (Plus it would make him look like Zig-Zags' car from Sabrina Online [if you look this up, look at Sabrina Online, don't just type in Zig-Zag, that is another thing entirely!])

    I know I said that Rhinox would be next, but I finished my Depth Charge custom today, so my next update will highlight that so that I can save Rhinox for last.

    Wow! That's awesome! I really like how the head and gun fit. The gun even vaguely reminds me of his original one.
