    First off, thanks to all the folks that's been keeping up with this build and for all your comments, suggestions and feedback.

    If you're interested in the WIP, check out the WIP Thread.

    Just a quick rundown of parts, etc.
    *Neoshifter arm for torso
    *Gundam 1/144 Impulse for chest/shoulders/head
    *Arms/neck, legs, beast mode head, beast mode parts, etc made from metal tubing, styrene and epoxy sculpt (milliput)
    *hand painted then sealed with krylon ultra clear flat.

    He's got three modes, I suppose: Beast Mode, Artillery mode (just in pushup position to use those back cannons) and robot mode. His robot parts are painted blue to resemble Cheetor's color scheme.

    I had a blast making this guy and am honestly surprised at how well he turned out (this is only my second transforming scratch build after my Valentine's Amour-hide which was just a simple shell-former...literally... his heart mode was a plastic candy shell and my TFTM Septicon Warrior GUMP was a non transforming figure).

    Hope you guys enjoy this guy! And thanks again for looking!

    First off, let me say that the speed that you completed this at is amazing. The details are all perfect, and the quality is top-notch. I'm glad I got to see it all the way through to completion. Also, I think the artillery mode looks much better all spider-stanced :D 

    Amazing work, fantastic details, a perfect paint job, and it's....dare I say it....cute! (In a shoulder-mounted plasma cannons of death kind of way)

    ...I thought that was the sound of a giraffe dying?

    Anyway, my first thought was, why this? Why Longrack? Of all the ones to choose from...

    But this is terrific. I mean, a kitbash/scratchbuild of ANYTHING is beyond what I can do, and the fact that you've pulled off both forms (and I love the hidden sword!) is amazing work.

    So, are you doing Stampy next? He'd rock with a chainsaw arm in bot mode. :D
