When I first saw generations ,or whatever it is, perceptor i thought that with a bit of work i could make it animated. i was unsure of the project until i read that the design of the figure is a mix of the G1 and animated designs. i scratch built the head and hand painted the details with no indents or guides. The arms are made from an animated swoop; the forearms are his forearms and the biceps are swoops thighs. his laser thingy on his shoulder is a laser pointer. I didnt do much work to the vehicle mode, i like the treads as back wheels. you may be wondering why i didnt go with soundwave as a base. it is simply because i find him too stocky.also i have other plans for a soundwave.
