    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.

    Paint job for this is awesome the smooth and the gloss looking skin of the killer whale overlapping the gray wrinkled looking skin of an elephant, that is cool.

    Torca was always my favorite Fuzor, and you truly did it justice!

    Thanks guys!!
    Yes he does have the horrible GPS issue. I wasn't especially careful with him and broke the tail right off, so I did some sculpt work, added a peg, and made it removable. That looked to be the only thin fragile gold part though so I'm hoping he is good now. I will treat him like a glass toy though from now on. I hate that.
    Is there a version without the GPS issue? Hell I'd love a good oversized KO of this guy too to paint if that exists.

    This looks fantastic! Hope the paint holds the gold plastic together long enough for you to enjoy him some time! I love the mix of gloss and flat.

    Great paint job on this guy.

    Fuzors were such an awesome idea, but you made this guy really shine.
