    IT'S COMPLETED! check here:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/393619-classics-perceptor-2-0-completed.html

    Inspired by the idea of Soundwave FSD...
    I had to do it :D 

    mod list will follow:
    ......

    Enjoy

    (ps its current only digibash paintsheme, the mods are real!)

    small update:
    also added Digibash Alt-mode paintscheme

    UPDATE2:
    Well is glued all over the place, so not other choice than hot dremel action :D 

    UPDATE3:
    Ok I'm gonna make a new DigiB. pretty soon, to see where the final paintapps will go, but since this guy can't be taken apart easily I'm wondering if it's worth going through al the pin removels (they look fragile)
    UPDATE3B:
    Digibashed final version, I think I looks great :p 
    (will prolly start washing the figure tomorrow and prep it for the day after)

    UPDATE4:
    Allmost done painting, this was horrible since like 95% this dude can't be taken apart like most other figure :)  Anyways... still need a 2nd coat on the legs / the eyes need yellow / maybe the groin black / autobot symbol

    Everything about this screams Perceptor. right down to the uncanny resemblance to IDW Perceptor's head. This is a sure fire win!

    yup that default head made me choose to do this over SB & SW ;) 

    thnx mate!

    I agree :p 

    thnx :) 

    Well not my call, but I did work out the microscope mode on my own :p 

    Your right but It would make botmode SOOO MUCH better...
    should I Digibash it so you can see what I'm planning?

    that hasn't stopped me before ;)  (I'm not worried ruining this figure) I'm gonna try looking closer and take it apart, then I digibash shoulder buttons, which fit in with the telescope mode..

    If that turns out great, then it's serious dremeling time ;)  thnx
