    I still consider him a W.I.P. but he's actually closer to being done then being left on the shelf till later.
    I still need to figure out a Scope attachment I kind of have an idea on what to use.
    I wanted him to be a planetary observer vehicle with a Dashboard mounted laptop and sat phone and teliscope (For Stargazing) but I made them too big lol so I have to get the time to downsize them...

    To make up for it I included my custom Dragstrip (His head mainly) :p 

    No vehicle mode since it's just the Original Rollbar color anyway...

    Damn! That's the first time I've seen Perceptor from a jeep mold. I really dig that. Good job! Don't let this one sit too long without adding the scope. Loving the alt customs

    This is a neato custom man! I really like the choice for the mold used and I think you made some really good choices for Perceptor. I would like to see the Jeep painted red, but you said it's a WIP. Perhaps we'll see that?

    As for the "scope", I'd just suggest looking at some other TF toys or even some found objects around the house for cylindrical objects you can make into one. :wink: 

    Keep up the good work man! :)

    I like it... you actually might look around the "educational" section of a toy store for a small microscope you can cannibalize

    well I looked in a few stores TRU, Kmart, Imagination Station (Science Store) and even Ebay... no small Microscope to be found...

    But, Does anyone know the size of the jeep's rollbars? I think i might be using the extra G-1 perceptor scope after all... and the screw whole on the bottom with the black base removed fits on the Rollbar pegs of the windows i just need to fing a plastic rod or metal rod to fit so the microscope can slide back and forth and move up and down. The mini laptop is done and needs to be painted and mounted and im working on the sat phone...

    Added new Wip pic, but does anyone know the actual size of the rollbars on the jeep? (dimension wise) The Scope is not attached, I would like to find a teliscope that'll fit but I haven't had any luck...
