    This is another classics Cheetor. I've had this in the works for a while now but sentinelprime's got me motivated to finish it. I actually tried to bid on his even though mine was 1/3 finished but I lost :(  Origianlly it was going to be yellow but I went with gold after falling in love with his.

    The figure is a Blurr base with a Drift head and long sword. I was going to go with Drift's smaller swords too but they don't fit in Blurr's doors. You see the doors were re-molded to fit the guns, which was a surprise to me.

    I definitely noticed a few areas that need touching up and I'm not too happy with the thicker paint in car mode but the bot mode is fine and it's just for my collection

    Ohhhh how purty. I like this a heck of a lot more than that peice of crap cheetor mold we got in the classics line. Only thing I could think you could do is maybe ad some black cheetah spots on the car mode, I think that would make it "pop" even more. Oh and a red Maximal symbol from repo labels, I bet they got some of those.

    Y'know, this is one of the few times when i think it would be beter to to paint over the clear windows... Considering the paint job isn't super realistic as it is, if you paint the windows black you could homage the cheetor spots without actually spotting the thing...

    The bot mode does look good in combining two figures.

    Looks good! The Drift mold does look like it was made for an Earth mode Cheetor.

    Thanks I really like that green myself
    Thanks
    I might have some of those symbols on the way actually. Not sure I'll do spots. Glad you like it though
    Not a bad idea. I'll think on it
    Thanks Cas! Sorry I forgot to bring it to the gathering, just slipped my mind :D 
    Haha yeah I try to go the easy route whenever possible. I'm bummed for you that you didn't get more for yours it was worth at least double that in my book
    Thanks. That's what I thought when I just saw a custom of him like 4-5 months ago

    Looking good. For anyone that thinks it looks a little...off, it looks much better in person.

    However, we gotta get you on an airbrush paint system sooner than later though :thumb

    This looks very nice. An airbrush would make all the difference in the paint. You coulld do black racing stripes instead of spots. Cheetor wasn't always an animal.

    looks really good. Loving the green. If you wanted to do spots without ruining the overall aesthetic you could always do a fade of black dots down the doors.

    Very nice, but I must admit, not a fan of the light blue AND the dark blue.
