    I've always been a fan of Beast Machines Tankor, and wanted to do a Cybeerverse figure of him to go with my Prime Cyberverse cast.
    So, after looking everywhere for a suitable H-pattern tank, I found a Gundam model kit that isn't as Gundam-y as most others.
    The transformation is simple, but the leg part is nicely involved. Also, he's insanely articulated, so posing is a lot of fun.
    I modded the arms and added articulated clawed hands, added guns to the forearms and a face plate, I tried giving it a suitably Tankor paintjob.
    I'm pretty happy with the results.

    The kit came with two models, and he looks way too much like a great base for War Within Shockwave for me to pass up, so the other one will probably either go in that direction, or become Brawl.

    Great! My one suggestion is to maybe but the torso on a hinge so it can cover the kneecaps.

    Nice work!

    Would love to see Tankor have the crossover success of...oh let's say...Bulkhead.

    The knee-pads are articulated and can be raised up. Makes kind of a fire-barrier, if you will.
    Adding a hings would probably eliminate some of the alt mode's stability. As it is, it's pretty compact and tight.

    Yeah, Beast Machines gets no love.
    I also have Jetstorm on the drawing table, and Thrust in the works.
