I always thought this was probably the best BM Cheetor figure there was, but one fatal flaw still ruined him. His wonky arms only moved up and down, and wouldn't stay in place easily for even the very limited poses he could do. I cut away a good bit of the shoulders and locked those ball joints into place so the karate chop-chop gimmick is gone and the ability to have a decent robot mode stance now exists. Its not a huge amount of extra articulation, but enough to put him in some decent poses now. I also added silver and gunmetal to most of the gray plastic parts. Now my question to you guys is- Should I do more? I feel I fixed what sucked as best I could, and as not-Cheetor as the darker color scheme is, I really like it. Painting over the transparent chest would kill all that detail sculpted on the inside and the shiny matrix-like thing you can see in there. I usually don't like transparent colored parts for anything but windows and visors, but I like it on this figure. Also, painting him from such a dark color to yellow would be a pain, and would mean I'd need to be more careful with the figure forever since any little scrapes would show navy blue... Was a little improvement all this figure needed? Or should I keep this color scheme and add more silver and gold details, maybe even paint the abdominal section and do a gold-edges-fade-to-clear-middle on the chest? Maybe just paint him all gold and silver with a few yellow and green details? A dumb figure so who cares?
