    So I finally got my Liokaiser. It took some time to get it after I paid for it. (two months, due to Wheeljaxx's family emergency taking priority)

    At first glance I was a little dissapointed with the quality of craftsmanship. Things like paint chips and the paper inkjet decals sort of makes this feel like an amateur custom. The recasted parts have hundreds of air pores/holes.

    I suppose im a little spoiled with high quality customs that dont have these problems.

    Like this, my friend customed a macross 1/48 valk into this for me.

    However regardless of Liokaiser's shortcomings, it is still a fantastic piece.

    mind if we add those to his gallery with credit? If you look in it, there's not all that many photos, and none from behind the combiner like that.

    Hold on, you've reviewed a fan-made custom figure?

    What's the point? Unless it's not the only one out there?




    Still, it looks neat.

    It's not the only one out there. Wheeljaxx made several of them. I wish I would have had the money for it when he was selling them.

    Sure thing. Just give credit where its due. I knew that there werent any good pcitures of Liokaiser anywhere. Cause I havent seen them nor found them. So I took good pictures for you guys. And cause i like taking pictures of TFs.



    Yep, cause im sure there are a few people interested in what it looks like. Many of the pictures, in fact all of them, are not as detailed and close up. Also as Redline mentioned, dont show the back. I have seen pictures of the back of LK before, but none of them are as clear and detailed as my pics.



    are you talking about the missing tread? yeah that was my fault. I already replaced the drill with the real thing. It is from a Brave toy called Build tiger. I had a KO lying around and I harvested the drill. So now it is chrome. Next I will upgrade the treads to the real ones that Wheeljaxx used. He used Armada/energon demolisher but I may use the energon tank from bruticus.

    nice review man, i can see some of the things you mentioned but yeah....still a great piece.

    man, the drillhorn has the potential to be the coolest figure of the group because of all the heavy mods

    Thanks for the update with the improved drill, think i'll do the same with the one i'm building. Bought the set from Wheeljaxx, but that looks soooo much better.

    I just have a quick question: How do the legs connect to Mirage? It looks like there's a piece of removable combiner kibble that forms a hip piece.

    Yep. That is one of the few "parts" that is required for combining liokaiser. It is a craddle that plugs into Killbison and has a hole for Drillhorn's front landing gear to plug into. Then Jaruga sits ontop of the cradle and Leozack sits ontop of Jaruga.


    The other parts is the foot for killbison and the hands.

    nice! you should try to make something about the feet under the tank (killbison), maybe a tanker pack..otherwise the all look cool, i especially like the black deco on mirage
