    Kingdom Cheetor has a good mold, simplify but still good balance between beast and robot mode. The only thing i don't like is the thick leg, the wrong proportion made his foot looks too small.

    I therefore change the back and front leg and add few leg armor to it (including a foldable panel to cover the gap but allow foot to fold up in beast mode). The beast legs now fold behind robot legs.

    Basic idea is to turn the leg 180 ° front to back, then unpin the foot, switch left and right foot and pin it back (you need to make some cut on the side of foot to allow ankle joint move inward).
    The rest is adding a knee pad armor, and fill the gaps

    You bought two Cheetors for the extra leg pieces?

    Yes, I broke one at my first trial, so it becomes extra parts for the second one

    Wow. Really cool. It's kind of a subtle-but-significant change. And the fact that you got it to still work for the transformation!

    Looks much better.Actually wondered myself if reversing the legs or something might be possible and guess it is. Will have to think about this myself

    Actually looks a LOT better this way, and the only tradeoff to speak of is having some tiny armor bits in beast mode (and the lower legs already had some). Definitely worth a try (I don't know if I can do the folding cover panel but the rest seems workable).

    Where’d the gun come from and does it store in beast mode?
