    :UPDATES ON PAGE 3:
    So this is another commission I'm just about finished with. It's for Lotussouljah. He wanted a good ol' G1 version of Perceptor. I used that Onslaught from the ROTF Bruticus set. The head is believe it or not, made from scratch (started it before RTS came out and the RTS is too small for the mold.) The scope is an Xwing exhaust and styrene. It wasn't easy fusing RTS Perceptors chest to the rest of the parts while being able to retain the head slide and hinged chestpiece. Still a wip, and more to come shortly.

    Excellent work, Allen! You know me, I'm a huge fan of your work and this is one of your best (next to Trailbreaker, of course!). But then again, you've had a LOT of great projects. Love the G1 look and fell of this and both modes look great! Definitely can't wait to see this painted up.

    Even unpainted it looks better than the RTS version that's for sure, such a shame he was so disappointing.

    I appreciate it when people still make customs of certain characters that have gotten recent toy representations.
