    Everyone's beloved mad scientist gets Alternator treatment.

    I always thought this would be a good repaint for the Scion mould. Some say Ironhide...I say Perceptor. He never gets much love anyway.

    First ups Alt pics. I left the gold dust and tint on the windows. Why? Because I like it.

    Great job Lobo! He really did turn out great.

    My only complaint would be the lack of paint aps in vehical mode. It's just too plain red.

    Maybe slap a blue stripe or two down the side? It would give more focus to the vehical mode.

    Othere then that I think Botmode looks perfect!

    WOW, I didn't think the Scion xB would look good for Perceptor but it surprisingly looks really nice. I took an Alternators Skids and I'm working on changing him into a custom Decepticon called Vibe (thanks superquad7). I keep hoping they use an "official" remold for Perceptor and use a vehicle like the Scion tC, Toyota Matrix or some other similar vehicle. I also keep hoping Hasbro will release an Alternators Bumblebee (or even his updated Goldbug version).

    Very nice work with Perceptor there.

    I'm not really sure if that's a production color but I already had the paint and I thought it worked well for him.

    I was just going for a plain look in Alt mode. Nothing to fancy. Besides, I display in bot mode and rarely transform my customs.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!
