I love this figure. He is one scary looking killer-whalephant and I liked his colors a lot as they already were. Unfortunately gold and blue are far from realistic colors for his killer whale or elephant parts though. I repainted the beast mode for realism while trying to keep his character color scheme as much as I could in robot mode, though the color placement is different now. Since his beast mode supposedly does an earth shaking stomp thing, I sculpted sonic blaster thingies into the holes under his feet. That also serves to fill the ugly holes under his hands in bot mode too though. I used high gloss black for the whale parts and finished him up with gloss coat over the whale parts and flat over the elephant parts. Probably the last BW figure I will do for a while.
