    Managed to get a Universe Cheetor in a lot and...wow I hated this thing. Or atleast, I hated it as Cheetor.
    So instead I completely repainted it as the McDonalds Beast Wars "Panther"/"Jaguar" toy(name depends on where you look).


    - Completely repainted based on both the McDonalds promotional material&IDW's artwork of the character. I left the yellow joints since the IDW art featured bronze joints anyways.
    - Added in hidden paw lasers to the front panther feet, allowing the robot mode to have flipout arm lasers.
    - It's hard to notice on the original toy, but the eyes actually have three levels to them. This allowed me to give it proper panther eyes, followed by black eyelids, followed last by pure red eyes.
    - Since this Cheetor came without a tail, I resculpted a new tail cannon out of a BW Prowl's tail which tabs into the tail's joint OR the peg plugs into the screw-hole on either arm.

    And for the life of me, my camera would NOT co-operate with me on getting a good shot of the beast face.

    I kinda thought this would be a throwaway custom that I post just because I felt someone needed to make it. But I actually ended up really loving how it came out. It's always nice when that happens because if it doesn't sell, it still fits in perfectly with my BW display.

    Wow, man. You managed to actually salvage this mould into something pretty damn cool.

    I like this. I can never have too many Beast Wars beasts, but we always forget Manta Ray, Beetle, Panther, etc.

    Great idea and work!
