    Waiting on some reprolabels for this guy, and I've got a few coats of highlights left to do and sealers, but its close. He still transforms. Base figure is Perceptor, arms are part Kup, part dlx Seeker, the chest is styrene. Seen in the background is my voyager WIP Trailbreaker. Check out Ironforgestudios on facebook for more customs :)

    Wow.... I wouldn't have figured the base mold is Perceptor.

    Brawn's looking mighty fine.

    Wow, that's really impressive. Did you sculpt the head yourself? I also never would have figured this for Perceptor. Is his damn backpack any more stable in your build?

    Awesome! Maybe replace the treads with wheels though.

    Those are awesome customs. I know there's a micro bots joke in there somewhere with Preceptor into Brawn.

    Really diggin his look in robot mode man, but I'd go with removing the half-track treads and adding in a few more wheels in alt. mode. Would definitely give a updated "Generations" feel to the figure.

    The tracks are pretty much the core of this figures legs, if I swapped them for wheels, id have to add four more wheels because of the fender well, which unless they're tied together with some kind of visible, plastic suspension I would potentially, almost definetly loose the folding in option of the tracks resulting in loose, open looking floppy legs. I think once I add the mud and weathering and a couple gijoe symbols it'll make more sense. I never wanted this to be a street friendly version of Brawn

    Yeah, that'll be cool man. I like the crossover idea. I wanna say, way back in the day, I think they re-painted a Snow-cat and made it a tiger-track? I can remember seeing it in the store and thinking how I wish they'd made it green to fit the core joe line better, but they were trying to promote their new "Tiger Force" line (re-paints of the classic 3 3/4" joes in a tiger patern camo)- so this actually sees that into a reality of sorts- plus he's a transformer-and Brawn at that! So fitting for the G.I. joes to get the big guy as an ally/assault vehicle!
