    So along with my Oversized KO Hardhead->Tankor repaint, I bought what was SUPPOSED to be an oversized BW Cheetor. It was not oversized and the plastic quality was not good.
    But nonetheless I went through with it...
    And then the elbows shattered, so I sawed them off and built new elbows out of twist-tie wires. Transformation is unchanged and it technically has more poseability.

    One more change is that I decided to revert Cheetor's tail gun to his pre-relese commerical version where the tail was the handle instead. Plastic quality not withstanding, I glued the whole thing together and got a decent result anyways. It plugs in through a scorched&sanded grove in the back of the pelvis.

    I'm kind of sad that the plastic quality was junk, because the tailgun turned out very nice. If not for it being a bootleg, I would have put a lot more bronze detailing on it like the Dreamwave art for Janther. I might revisit this idea one day on an official kenner cheetor instead. But for now, this is a good concept showcase.

    Oh and this figure was painted on stream! Something I'll start doing every once in a while now.
    You can head over to Twitch/amiarbalest and check me out then when I do "Paint & Chat" streams. I have some much better ones I'll be finishing up on stream today!
