    Just finished another custom figure, this one was so fun to do. I bought a ko tigatron on AliExpress and was originally going to paint him orange for the unreleased tigertron repaint and decided to do a whole new character I was messing around with different base colors and really liked the grey so I went for a leopard :D 

    Any ideas for a name, gender and faction :) 

    Only have one pic of the beast mode but that was when it was unfinished but will take some more when I transform it

    Maximal, 'cause the preds shouldn't get ALL the dark recolors. Female, 'cause there's already three dudes with that mold. As for name... I don't know. Pantherus? Panthera? Panthyra?

    That's a great paint scheme on your custom. Wish I still had the time to customize, but kids certainly take away from the free time!

    It's funny, I've been posing him with the swords the same way as you, until I went back and watched some episodes. It's a bit odd looking, but they're supposed to be held the other around, ie. concave edge outward. The oddness makes it more interesting to look at too.

    And Megatron has found a new hunting rifle!

    I decided she’s a she (lol) and a maximal also I like panthera as that’s the Latin name and what I was leaning towards originally:) 
    Kids do take up a lot of your time :) 
    I do find it relaxing so when the little one is asleep I can get a lot done
    I wonder if there was a Way to make her look more like a lynx... maybe add a tip to the ears using wire or clay? Hmm

    Thanks chopper :) 
    She has the look for sure :) 

    So many good names, I’m not sure now since there’s an option for her to be a lynx. What to do

    For now I decided she’s a maximal scout and also the younger sister of cheetor (thanks for the idea @Chopper Face). She’s fast, intelligent and cunning. She’s nothing like cheetor in fact she’s more mature than her older brother. She has a rival by the name shadow panther who almost slagged her upon her arrival to prehistoric earth! Since that day she’s vowed to take him down and any like him. Back on cybertron she was a mere engineer (which isn’t what she wants to do) and has grown a lot since arriving on earth which has also shown her to be a capable warrior and excellent leader in time of need, for now she resides just outside the maximal borderline waiting for any signs of predacon activity. Ready and waiting this maximal will take you down and rip out your spark in an instant doe she seems harmless and friendly if you get on this cats bad side your in for one bad day :) 

    Name: undecided
    Faction: Maximals
    Gender: Female
    Weapons: Tailend frost rifle, and two icicle shaped throwing daggers
    Job/duty: Engineer
    Aspirations: Wants to lead her very own team like her current leader optimus primal (who is her role model)
    Fighting skills: 8 out of 10
    Intelligence: 9out of 10
    Speed: 9 out of 10
    Number one goal: peace amongst cybertronians and other planets
    Nickname: Cat lady (thanks to rattrap), and Fuzzy (again thanks to rattrap) lol
    Cheetor calls her by the name he called her when they where younger and that was blizzard due to her ability to survive and handle very low temperatures this also lead to her other nickname Cool Cat giving to her by cheetor as well
    Catchphrase for when an enemy is defeated: The Blizzard will always find you and break you down predacon!

    Blizzard would be a great name- although I feel like that already exists somewhere... and Tigatron is kind of the already in the role of cat who’s suited to the cold.

    It has a nice ring to it, I’ll have to look into it later on. True we already have tigatron but given her beast mode I think I can make an exception for another cool cat in the beast wars universe :)

    Also the purple really brings out the screaming face on his crotch.

    I have fond memories of that mold and one thing I regret. When I first got Sonic Attack Jet I repainted him thinking why not since I already had JetStorm. Then I realised how much I liked the color scheme but couldn't find another one. I only just got another one within the last maybe five years.

    @Primal Sabbath share your horrocon theory. It's some amazing detective work.
