    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.

    I do not take offense to this because as previously stated this is just a querky interpretation of him. if you want to you can sat its his earth form. what ever you want just roll with it

    Actually, I think it's really cool for people to attempt to make toy-less animated characters.
    Not enough out there doing it.

    Nice job, BTW

    Dude... He's a cybertronian truck. Everybody and their momma knows that RTS Perceptor was based off the geewuny goodness and animated's truck explorer thing.

    Hey that's pretty darn good. I think I may like that better than what I have planned for perceptor.

    The altmode looks more animated than I would have thought possible and the laser pointer is a great idea for his cannon.

    The only problem is the original's overly detailed legs aren't very TFA friendly. It's hard to tell from the pics if you did anything to correct that.

    Nice job. The paint's a little rough, but that just means someone loved it enough to do it all by hand.

    Hey I was just looking at my rts perceptor. Did you mod the body at all to fit that big head in there, or does it have to come off?

    AWESOME!!! And he even transforms!!! :bowdown: 

    Is is just the angle, or did you shave down his forearms? They look really skinny.

    you're right they're horrifically skinny! it looks skinny because of the forearm bracelet things, it looks more proportionate in real life!
