    I didn’t do anything out of the box other than paint the eyes. So I may need to extend the legs.

    Such a great job painting the eyes. How did you do it so nicely? Would you be kind enough to send your method.

    You have to remove screw in the back of head to get to the eye piece. The black piece in the picture holds the clear eye piece down. This must be removed, it’s not a screw though. You just have to pull real hard on it. Once this black piece is out the clear eyes can be removed and painted. Once dry reassemble. It’s not the easiest to remove but is doable.

    I'd be inclined to think Cheetor would work well from T-Beast Bumblebee, but that may just be because of the colors. It does look more based on the Lio Convoy base design.

    Then I would say Tigatron from Rodimus (though you could do both from Rodimus if having the beast head in the chest is important).

    If they didn't include the mane on the bumblebee beast mode then that would look more like a cheetah. I agree though about the beast head. That I feel would make it more like the character. It would have to be some kind of retool though.

    What about rhinox though?

    I don't have the books yet so I don't know if there is a Rhino or not. Since I don't have a specific one in mind I looked through the ones I know to pick out the ones that I thought could reasonably be remolded into a rhino.

    Both Sideswipe options are maybes

    [​IMG]

    Inferno (G1) could be a good option
    [​IMG]

    Ultra Magnus would be another option

    There is a T-Beast BW Dinobot though that I've seen.

    Stop it! You're killing me with all these GREAT art pieces. I want them all. :p  :lol  On second thought, is there anything made of Sunstreaker to go with Sideswipe?

    That Dinobot looks KILLER! I would be after that as soon as a preorder became available.

    I've decided that I don't want to keep this guy and put him up in my sales thread if anyone is interested.

    SOLD!!

    Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong with the led feature. No matter how I arrange the parts it won't work and it's very clear that the circuit is meant to face with the compressor towards the button so it can actually click but regardless of which way I face the battery above the circuit nothing happens when the button is clicked. The batteries are CR927's, supposedly the correct ones and this particular set of batteries should be good till 2020 so surely all five of mine can't be dead.

    Am I wrong? how are the parts suppose to be arranged? are cr927's actually required or do I need another type? they fit inside just fine, but again I'm getting diddly squat.

    Ah excellent so it was the wrong battery type then. Because my cr927's certainly do not work at all. LR44 apparently is perfect for takara's primal though and I have those and some sr72's left over that still work perfectly for feralrex.

    Man I wish companies could standardize battery types they use. Sure is more of a hassle than it should be to find the right ones.
