    I don't know how nobody has done this yet, but this had to be done.

    Took a Deluxe TR Hardhead and repainted it into Beast Machines Tankor, with the Titan Master as Rhinox.
    - Repainted rifle pure gold to be the Key to Vector Sigma.
    - Added a BM Tankor vehicon chip to the chest.
    - Amusingly this mold allows you to recreate Tankor's Beast Machines tank mode by just leaving the head connected for vehicle mode.

    Didn't actually have any other tankor on-hand other than the one I repainted into Rhinox. Mostly because I don't LIKE that toy, it's too tiny to even fit in as a decent deluxe. However, Hardhead's mold is actually alittle taller than most Deluxes which makes him a pretty decent Tankor next to Rattrap/Waspinator/etc deluxes. Someone needs to get one of the KO companies to make a Leader-class Tankor.

    I really love making customs like this. He turned out great, and if he never sells then he'll fit in just fine with my Beast Wars line.

    Wow, he looks great. At first, I didn't realize I was looking at hardhead. Great paint applications.

    Wow I am not sure how I missed that. Thanks for pointing that out. I actually scan radicons daily so I don't pick up a custom project someone else is already doing the same way. Still, atleast they're pretty different.
    Seeing his take on it though, I'm really glad I decided to make the feet silver instead of having them match the treads. It might be more accurate to tankor to leave them black, but it kept messing with my eyes before I started painting.

    That is amaze! :) 
    Truly homages the best character development written for Beast Wars!

    And Rhinox left permanently in head mode, really symbolizes how his will was captive to Tankor's programming, ...at least at 1st!.
    Transforming the headmaster re-emerges Rhinox as Da Man in control ...of Cybertron and everyone! :)

    Nice work. Great idea (even if it randomly came before this) and the colors are perfect. As someone who attempted a paintjob of a Titan Master, I can appreciate what it took to get that much Rhinox detail on such a small figure.

    Actually the BW Uprising comic was (according to the wikia) published on Dec28 2016, this custom was posted on Dec12 2016.

    Does make me feel pretty happy with the design I did to know that though. Guess that means I share tastes with the artists.

    I legit thought that this was a repaint of the T30 Tankor with a titan master head at first. Really excellent work man!

    Absolutely genius and fantastic execution. The colors look great on the mold, almost as if it were made for it.
