    This was really just an experiment to see whether the BW figures could be made any more realistic. Not sure if it was successful but still fun.

    Gorilla mode. Bot pics coming shortly.

    that looks really cool looking, the gorrilias head has like a planet of the apes feel but the bot mode almost looks like that the fur was there all along! nice job

    Which is what I tried to pull off but the tinting of the fur went a bit...wrong.

    I'd say this is a very noble effort. Everything looks great to me but one thing kills it for me. The gorila head needs to flip around. Just sitting there on his chest just looks super off and creepy. Like he killed one and ismwearibg its head. But other than that this thing rocks!

    Other than the head, this is really great! The head just looks like it's on the wrong figure. Don't mind that it doesn't flip round though; all the other season 1 transformers wore their beast heads on their chest, why not Primal?

    The legs are really well covered, it always annoyed me how easy to see the robots legs were.

    Good job.

    Edit: What are those two scrathches(?) on his chest for? And the hands look a little skeletal. Still, nice.

    That's pretty awesome! Where did you get the fur from?

    The fur was just from some old cloak.

    The fact that the others wore their beast mode heads on their chests was the reason I went for that here. The hands did feel skeletal to me, too. But I really just grabbed the first pair of vaguely simian hands I could find. My s
    econd attempt will probably use a ML Hulk hands or something similar.

    Looks better than I would expect. You should fill in the hollows of his robot feet with the fur and paint the bottom edges black, the feet are the only part that really stick out in beast mode and they could easily be hidden better.

    Looks like you have to partsform the animal chest on, that's a shame.

    I am working on this same exact thing. . . just a lot slower. I just got my Primal not to long ago and painted all the areas that needed. I patched on all the weird gaps on the chest and got a stuffed monkey for fur on V-day. I have not gotten around to getting the fur on the bot yet though :( .

    This picture makes me think that the Beast Wars had to be the smelliest of all the Cybertronian wars. ugh, singed gorilla fur.
