    I just recently became aware of BW Fuzors Bantor figure and the 1st thing I thought was what a great candidate for a Lio Convoy "Mini-me" he would make! I got the head from a BW Neo Prowl (from the Magnaboss set) which I had to modify to mount onto the sliding base for this figure. I also had to widen the inside of his chest cavity to accomodate the new head.
    Once that was done, the rest was a straight forward repaint. I have to go back and do some touch up paint to fix some scratches caused by 1st transformation, maybe add some detail to the chest too, not sure there yet.
    C&C always welcome,
    Enjoy!
    Later

    That looks great - love how despite Bantor being a mandril/tiger hybrid his features look convincingly lion like when repainted
