    Back story: Once known as Autobot Camshaft, he was one of cybertrons greatest medical minds and scientists. one day he was attacked by a herald of unicron called the puppeteer, alongside his comrade Longarm. found by sunstreaker, they were rebuilt. Choosing the name Perceptor, he now wants to bring the herald to justice.

    He was painted with metallic black, metallic red, and black. He has one Red line on his hood. His cannon was modified to be taken out of his stomach and put on his shoulder.

    This piece is dedicated to the first person here to inspire me, Redline!

    hehe I don't know what to say man, but thank you. :)  I try to inspire everyone to not hold back or be afraid to try something new. I started off and was that way myself once. nice story you have, and interesting modification for the BFG shoulder cannon, too.

    i agree. maybe you could try thinning the paint more. i do think the red stripe looks a little cleaner than your previous stripe work.

    i hope you don't take my (and other people's) comments negatively.

    Did you cut out a notch in front of the neck joint to give it better articulation?

    Good job on disconnecting the cannon. I still think you should consider taping the windows and using a spray.
