    Like a lot of people, I was disappointed that there was no official Cataclysm figure produced. He was designed at least in part to throw people off of the scent of possible convention exclusives. After getting a cheap bootleg TM Cheetor, I felt a strong urge to give this figure a shot.

    Even though Testors makes a teal and fushia paint, I customized the colors to get them as close as I could to the picture I printed out of Cataclysm from the Botcon website.

    It's hard to see in the pictures I took, but I also gave him a proper cartoon-styled mouth. It's such a minor mod I still consider this a repaint.

    Great job! I can't believe no one commented on it back then either. Nice work--it doesn't look anything like a KO with that paint job.

    I'm not familiar (or just don't remember) the character, but I do like the shade of green you used and the chest markings look cool to. Nice work.

    Probably because new stuff gets on second page pretty fast!
    Anyhoo, It seems I missed this! It's nice man but I'm waiting for that other stuff...
    ya know...lips sealed....can't hold....for ....long....
    Back to topic... due to my very limited knowledge of Beast Wars, I had no idea who this was(thanks to google). Still, you did a great paint job on this guy! Props!

    All of you have been so very nice to me! He's certainly not part of my most impressive work but he was only intended to fill the gap in Botcon storyline toys.

    For those that are unfamiliar, he's from a Botcon story. He was just a re-color of the TV show version of TM Cheetor in that continuity so my repaint followed suit.

    I had not seen the original posting. But I have seen this repaint before and this guy has some serious talent when it comes to repaints and kitbashes he is one of the great ones

    Looks awesome

    Good catch on the thread RL, sucks when good things accidentally get unnoticed like that.

    Pretty darn cool. Actually, I'd more or less forgotten about Cataclysm. He was from the same story as Antagony, wasn't he? Something about the Omega Point, IIRC...

    Thats pretty cool!! Is it just me, or does any one else think of Voltron when you see a group shot of robot lions (or any other robotic feline)? LOL .... Hmmm, I wonder if that could be possible?
