    First off, this beautiful repaint is not done by me, but by Chaos Muffin.
    He painted this Big Convoy for me, and as you can tell the result is stunning. Now it kind of makes me sad to look at my regular BC, he somewhat looks so cheap now.... :lol

    Hope you'll enjoy :)

    That's amazing! I love the dark red and blue. The paintjob on the beast mode really brings out all the intricate fur sculpting on the mold. I'm not such a fan of all the silver on the chest, but the color placement is spot on everywhere else. The level of detail is just awesome! :) 

    It's funny how we never get a lot of customs (if any) from Beast molds, then someone comes along and drops a gem like this. I just might have to do something like this to mine.

    Not a fan of the beastformers but this does look very nice. Looks very powerful. Lots of nice details.

    It looked different as a thumbnail, what if he was painted in Dinobot colors? I know it's not right but that what I thought the colors were before I clicked. Just throwing that out there.

    Damn, and while I'm working on the very same figure right now (although I'm going the non-metallic route with no drybrushing, plus more cartoon-accurate).

    Either way, this one looks really cool with the metallics and heavy ink washes. Nice!

    I was originally thinking "A red and blue mammoth?", cool!
    -But then your pictures blew me away! I knew the BC mold was pretty sweet, but those just bring it up to a whole 'nother level...

    Awesome gallery SydneyY , your pics are so clear. Hard for me to look at him without critisizing all the flaws :lol  Already want him back to touch him up some more lol

    He's a fun one to paint for anyone wondering. He had way more detail that I remembered. Adding some wash to his fur's so easy it's almost natural. Would love to see other's take on him, I could'nt really come up with too many ideas for him.

    Don't think that way CM, the pics only prove how great the paintwork is. You know how harsh the lighting is in supah cleah setup. My favourite is the photo of the accessories, I didn't realise how detailed they were until I examined the pic.

    I don't know how you did it, but his eyes and matrix have nice glowing effect :)

    Looks good.

    The first Transformer I ever imported was Lio Convoy.
    However, the toy I actually got was Flash Lio Convoy (which I didn't even know existed).
    That toy could benefit from this treatment.
