    I'd noticed that Cheetor and Drift had very similar heads and one thing lead to another and well I made this. He's about 90% done, needs a few touchups, some clear on the blue, work on the wheels, and a handle for his gun. I'm not putting any maximal stickers on him as I'm going for a straight up autobot. I hope to have him done and have a gallery up by this weekend. Comments welcome I enjoy everyone's feedback. Keep in mind I do not own an airbrush yet. Oh and sorry for the crappy pic it's from my phone.

    I really like how this looks, especially the contrast between the metallic blue and glossy yellow. How do you feel about a few metallic gold applications, for a little extra pop?

    That's pretty damn slick! Any hope for a throwing star?

    Wow, your painting of Drift is galaxies better than mine...

    But this is really cool. I can completely see Cheetor as a repaint of this figure and you captured it fantastically. Though the vehicle mode definitely needs the spots.

    I was planning on making him into manga-verse Tigatron. For a second, I thought someone beat me to it.

    I might hit it with some gold, it'll be a nice contrast from all the yellow.

    Hmmm Possibly. I've considered making the swords look like his BM counterpart.

    I was going to do spots but I changed my mind I have another Idea I'm gonna do with decals.

    I considered doing a whole S1 Maximals as autobots but IDK if I want to get that in depth.

    And thanks everyone for the awesome comments.

    Looks great so far. I also plan on doing Drift into Tigatron. Can't wait to see him all done.
