    My take on a odd character, that I've always sorta liked. This has been a WIP forever...whenever the white Lio Convoy was on shelves.

    I attempted to add some articulation in his legs, but it didn't turn out as nicely as I wanted to. It ended up becoming more of a learning opportunity than a completed piece. Also, I destroyed two innocent figures in the process to articulate the legs.

    I removed the mane, and attached it with a magnet.

    And the scar on his face is meant to resemble the windshield wiper on the original Snowcat vehicle mode.

    The head looks small but looks nice. I like the colors and LOVE the new leg articulation.

    that is absolutely stunning! the head doesn't completely fit in with the beast body, but it's a great idea and works so well

    I like it. If only you could upscale the head. Hydrospan it perhaps?

    Or Mod the lio prime head heavily to make it look like snowcat?

    -also i like how you beast war'ed Snow Cat,and if you do mod the lio prime head like i suggested,maybe you can give him a "fanged" faceplate? just to add in the beastie-ness.

    Nah, I actually like this head better. Modding the Lio Prime head would defeat the purpose.

    The head is a bit small, I agree, but I like how it adds to his bulkiness. I did plan to do skis and poles, from the tail (you can see the fold out rack on his back) but I couldn't get it to work right and I needed to wrap this guy up. Thanks for the feedback.

    It's awesome but I always remember Snowcat as one of the smaller weaker decepticons not being that large xD Hard to believe he was Cyclonus at one point

    Agreed. Also...I bought this head from you, as I recall correctly.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I don't remember the storyline at all, but I just remember him yodeling, with skis. Crazy.

    Here's a couple of WIP shots. He was originally intended to be Prowl, using an alternators head.

    I'm glad you decided to go with Snowcat afterwards. Just makes for something far more interesting, imo!

    Saw it said Snow Cat so I expected a remake on Energon Snow Cat still being same design. I stopped scrolling down at the head and read so when I scrolled down to see the rest of the body I was surprised/stunned to see you made him out of that mold. Totally didn't expect that. Interesting take on him and his name.

    The big body with the small head makes it look like he's wearing a puffy winter coat. In other words, adorable.

    Kitty!

    Awesome job on the repaint. I like that you colored him just as close to the Energon version as possible.
