I need to do another touch up paint job but I’m pretty happy overall with the proportions and color pallet. I need to find a better matte finish clear coat. The matte I picked up is still too shiny. Anyone have any suggestions for a nice flat matte clear coat?

Looking good. I always use Tamiya semi gloss, since they're the paints I use anyway. I've used their matte before that's great too. Very matte. You could always hit what you've done with some testors dullcote.

I hope cheetara comes out more like the prototype than the new pics. Hard to tell but man it doesn’t look that good.

Her widows peak should be lower and the orange paint around her eyes is wrong. Plus her signature shaped waist is now gone.

The pic was from Flynn's instagram

Yeah, definitely nowhere near the prototype. I saw a comment made about these super7 TCats figs, that they look more like clown make-up on the cats than how they should actually look :LOL: . I mean, in person they look decent, but they definitely are not hitting on what they advertised.

They changed out Cheetara's torso, another penny pinching measure I guess.

I don't even thing the prototype is that accurate, she looks more Asian than in the show. The production figure looks like a cosplayer with a lazy eye.

Touched up the paint and got a better matte clear coat. Looks much better now.

Decending height from Liono to Tygra to Panthro, as it should be. Nice work. Hopefully I'll get mine done soon.
Thank you. I can’t wait to see it. So many ways to make this a reality. Interested in your interpretation. Especially using the color scheme you have planned.

Anyone want to speculate on what will be in wave 6?

I’m hoping for the Thunder kittens, some Robear Berbles, and maybe a young Lion-o with Snarf.

I only saw the mummra repaint tease. Is there an entire wave of repaints? Where did you hear this?
