    Cybertron Tigatron, from Drift

    I'm sure someone's already done this but his is just my go at making Drift into Tigatron, not much needed to be done really, just a bit of paint here and there.
    i did want his stripes to be a bit cleaner and straighter than they turned out to be, but i think the uneven nature of them harks back to tiger's beast mode, gunna mod the little swords at some point, make them feel more, tribal/worn.
    want to get some green maximal symbols or the shoulders too.
    Apologies for the picture quality, was taken from my phone!

    That looks sweet. Someone just posted this idea in my thread about what molds to use for BW characters in vehicle modes

    Would like to see some better pics too

    Could Drift be one of the most versatile mould for customisers ever? So far I've seen, Drift, Blurr, Deadlock, Boss, Springer, Cheetor, Tigatron, Punch/Counter Punch, a red re-paint that I can't remember what he called it, Clutchkick (his own character though I think), and Minerva, and he's only been out a couple of months! Can't wait to see what people come up with next.

    On topic, Tigatron looks great, I like that the stripes look a little rough edged, makes it look more organic. Great job :thumb

    was this really necessary? couldnt even comment on his work?

    nice work, the stripes are sleek. BW repaints are alot of fun to do. try cheetor with this mold aswell... or even Battle Ravage from that one episode.

    It's a perfect fit! I had seen the resemblance too when I first bought the figure, but never thought to do anything with him. This came out great. The tiger stripe tech lines are brilliant--straight enough for the car mode, but broken up just right to really sell the robot mode as Tigatron.

    Awesome! :)

    i have seen Cheetor Painted with this mould.. can't recall where though, Tigatron seemed easier though as his colour was already the base white.
    as for Ravage i didn't even concider him, think he could be easily pimped up to look evil, would need to remould he head a little though i suspect.

    cheers to everyone for the positive comments!
