    A quick update, guys...

    I tried him out with the "Simple Version" Perfect Effect KO-style feet. What do you think?

    I also did some color mockups, which option do you think is best?

    They all look great and have their own merits, but I think option 2 black hands with option 4 foot aesthetic would be great. (Possibly even solid black feet, or option 3 with the color aesthetic of option 4, depending on your preference and of course, the original look of the figure, which I have little knowledge of.)

    Looks fantastic though!

    Seeing this... I'm kind of surprised no 3rd Party teased a Leozack/Jallguar duo set that could accomplish what you did, but with two slightly bigger deluxes to avoid the partsforming. Heck, I'm still hoping that maybe, just maybe, Takara hasn't given up on their Unite Warriors retools, and considered something along these lines to make a proper Leokaiser.

    Definitely dig how the six bots look as individuals. I also wouldn't be surprised if you inspire others to take this idea and make their own bot.

    WOW this is absolutely incredible!!! I'm currently in the process of making my own CW custom Liokaiser so mad respect to you for getting to the finish line. :D  As for the options, I'd vote for Option 4!

    By the way, would you be willing to share the STL files for the custom parts you made? If not, that's totally cool but I figured I should ask since this is what I'd like my Liokaiser to look like. lol. Again, awesome awesome work!!!

    After seeing this, it's given me the motive to get off my lazy butt and finish my own Liokaiser. Congrats on an amazing custom! :)

    I think the black hands and feet from Option 4 work best. Personally I would just use the Defensor colors which I believe has red accents on the black feet.


    Also, some things to consider adding for Killbison and Drillhorn to further enhance the look. ;)

    Hey bro, this is cool. Option 1 seems to be cartoon accurate, so I like that one.

    The only thing off about it is that Leozack's blue is a little to dark, other than that you did a great job!

    Thanks for the vote!

    Thanks, I'm happy to share and do hope it inspires others! It's such a GREAT character, it deserves GREAT representation!

    Thanks for the feedback and the vote!

    The problem is I made a lot of changes to the original design, so the CAD no longer matches. So unfortunately at this point I don't have plans to make this a kit...PLUS...the 3D printing cost was insane--I don't think anyone would buy one.

    Thanks for the vote!

    Do it! Do it! Do it!!! Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks for the ideas and the vote, and thanks for those kits...I took a look, they look nice I'll consider them. :) 

    Thanks!

    Hey Braux Man, thanks for the vote!

    Thanks for the votes!

    Thanks...Steam Sheild did such an amazing job, I hope everyone that does a custom like this uses his head sculpts they are PERFECT!

    Agreed, it's not the right teal. It was personal preference...I wanted a metallic to make it look like the other figures.

    Wow, that's high praise, thanks!

    That's very kind...thanks for that compliment!

    Holy smoke, you remember that? That's awesome...yeah, it's amazing how things have evolved...I've learned so much from these boards, from friends...and 3d priting has TOTALLY changed how we can work. The next frontier for me is scanning, and I have a VERY ambitious project in the works that is in the concept phase...hope to start modelling it soon!
