    Hi all.

    I Thought I would share a figure that I have just recently finished up with you, my take on a ROTF version of Beast Wars Terrorsaur. I had the idea after seeing how much my ROTF Skystalker resembled a Pteranodon, so out I went and grabbed the Sunspot repaint the next chance I had.

    Just a straightforward repaint with a head swap, I tried to take the colours from the original figure's scheme and transfer them over. He is my first real attempt at panel lining, and I am pretty happy with the results, although I have learnt a few lessons from him.

    Hope you like and any comments are welcomed.

    (Sorry for the poor pictures, my 'proper' camera had run it's batteries flat in it's case).

    Aside from looking like Rumble, that's great.

    What head did you swap onto it? I don't get recognize it. And thepanel lining looks great I would've never thought yellow in red, but it's great!

    It's BW Terorsaur's head. I don't really see Frenzy in that, there's not enough black for that whereas this is spot on terrorsaur. Terrorsaur (1996) - Predacon Aerial Combat - www.tfu.info

    That looks awesome. As an owner of a Pre-BW collection this thing is pretty high up there for me. Fantastic job!

    This is awesome. Looks spot on terrorsaur. I am thankful that you put this guy up for another reason and that is the head. I am currently wanting to do a custom using this guy and the head was what had me worried. Thank a lot.

    Thanks all for the positive feedback on him, makes the many coats of red I had to do worthwhile! Also thanks to all for the vote of confidence in the panel lining, I had my doubts when I was doing it but if you don't try you won't know.

    For those wondering about the head, as has already been said it is from the BW Terrorsaur mold (Actually a cast I took from BW Lazorbeak) and it fits on the base figure with no problems once a socket for Sunspots neck ball-joint is carved out.

    Once again thanks for the feedback.

    You should really fix your signature ;) 

    I love the repaint. It's straight Terrorsaur there. My only gripe are the feet. I really don't like them. Wouldn't it be possible to make them 'regular' feet?

    This is brilliant! If I was doing non-beast forms of BW characters I would totally steal the idea.
