    Take a guess.

    I REALLY need to find a way to make him more "Deceptive".

    He's suggesting that the color scheme and weathering make it look a lot like a transport pod from Star Wars...primarily the one that LuK drives with Obi Wan. And I would have to agree. Very similar resemblance.

    Some advice: It seems that you have a camera that is able to take well focused pictures (as evident by the ones showing the tile backsplash details behind your figure). So, the only thing you need to work on is focusing on your figure, and blurring the background. You camera can handle it, so work with it a little bit, and your photos will be grand! Good luck!

    I think he fits more Cheetor than Dragstrip.

    Yeah, I know I need a different camera, but I just don't have one.

    use the macro setting (flower button) and make sure you focus on the toy, then we can see what you did there, from what i can see it looks pretty good

    I was suggesting that he looks like a drift-type bot got caught in a tattooine sandstorm.

    Again, you don't need a new camera. Just need to work on focusing a little better. It took great pictures of your tile background. The camera is fine. But, if you want a new one, have at it.

    I like this custom.

    You don't need a new camera. The one you are using is taking clear pics. The one in vehicle mode head on is very clear. You just need better focus and lighting. Also invest in a tripod to keep the camera steady and set a delay of 2 or 3 seconds if you can. You will have much clearer pictures. Trust me. Some of my pictures were even worse than these. Also use a neutral background. ( Black, Grey, White, Etc)

    Work on better pics and repost the figure

    No, I'm serious. Someone should have thought of this earlier; a Cheetor from Drift! And you came up with the idea on accident due to a "bad camera". You only need Blur's guns, a purple face, and maybe some spots for good measure, and voila! You've got yourself Cheetor (though the continiuity is going to be a problem).

    The pics are too blurry to really make much out, but with a little practice you'll be able to get those right.

    Is there a reason you only painted one leg?

    Okay, I'll chime in and say that an easy way to get all these Cheetor fans off your back is simply to paint some purple accents on it. Drag Strip needs purple, and it would look a lot less like Cheetor.

    My advice is to change the red accents in car mode to purple, and make the head purple. That should be clear enough as Drag Strip and not that annoying spotted cat.
