    Another favorite BW Character that wasn't in the show... At least not as a Transmetal.
    Too bad they killed him off in a lame way without a word said about it ever, so we never got to see him as a Transmetal in the show. The BW writers must have loved the DOTM Ironhide death...
    Anyway, I did the usual here. I spread his base colors around and added silver too it, but I went much further with the red on him. Since he was a red
    pterodactyl in the show before his demise, I wanted the colors that made him recognizable to stay more intact.
    Hope ya like!

    Wow... the original had such a goofy paint job...

    Yours fixes it up quite nicely!

    looks awesome!
    it would have been cool if he didnt die and stayed in the show as a transmetal..

    this figure is great, and you made it even better! probably could have replaced all the purple with red, purple was tarantulas and Megatron's colors...

    I always thought transmetal Terrorsaur should've been more like his original colour scheme. This is much bettter.

    I've been a fan of this mold for quite a while now, and I really like how you added the red touches without removing all of the purple. I always saw the purple as being somewhat of an add on, and I think the choices you made worked out great.

    Photos came out wonderfully, too. :)

    Very nice paint mods to one of my favorite BW figures. I always wanted to see the TMs in the characters' Season 1 colors. Do you have plans to do any more?

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks! Most of the Transmetals in the show had entirely different color schemes from their original forms, and if it werent for the voice actors and similar beast modes, I wouldn't have accepted some of them as the same characters even, like Optimus Primal for example. Since TM Terrorsaur wasnt in the show, I kind of needed the colors to be closer to his show version to see him more as the character.

    I'm glad you like what I was going for here. I'm putting a lot of work into these and they are for my own collection, but the lack of interest in BW makes it less fun to post them. Still, I am doing 2 more. Working on making an original Predacon from one of the weird Japanese dinos, and then I'll do one of my favorite Fuzors. No more plans to give any Transmetals their original colors though.

    Paint work is nice, but I think there's too much going on. I think the green seems out of place now that the red has spred. Maybe replace it with red or silver?

    Hmm... I do see what you mean.
    I just wanted to stick to the existing colors aside from adding a neutral color like silver for more detail. I guess purple and green go together better than red and green, and now there is much more red.

    It is pretty funny someone got around to doing beast wars customs since the last couple days I've been playing with mine if it been with the most recent changes in toy manufacturing.this actually makes me happy to see.

    Fair enough. Still looking forward to seeing your dino and Fuzor!

    I know what you mean about the diminished interest in BW. Most customizers tend to only work with whats new on the shelf at the moment, and then move on just as quickly.

    I like this. I miss Beast Wars. I just bought TM Terrorsaur, TM Rattrap and TM Tarantulus. I might do customs on all 3 someday.

    I finished them a little while back. Just find Loresaur and Torca here somewhere in Radicons. I also did one more, Triceraton from the Guildart figure, then did some touch ups on TM2 dragon Megatron.
    I do believe I'm done painting BW figures for a bit now, but I will go through the box one more time here soon because I am bored off my ass and commissions are as slow as usual through July and August for me...

    I'd sure like to see that!
