    Yo! Please, have some Energon and make yourself at home.

    I found myself wanting to make a Seeker custom. I wanted someone from the show for canons sake, but someone that hadn't been worked on that I'd seen.

    I was rewatching mtmte a couple of nights back and saw this cool guy with a flamethrower:

    I don't think he has an offical name in the fandom that I could find, so I have dubbed him Wildfire, as the first seekers all had two part names. I don't think there's another Wildfire in the TF lore either. Please correct me if I'm wrong.


    I had found what I was Seeking!

    I wanted him to look as much like the screen version as possible, but that meant making him very simple in color. I tried to mix it up a bit with some panel lining of a different shade of purple, and I tried to mix it up in the areas that you couldn't see in the scene. I was afraid he'd look like Skywarp, so I left as much purple as I could to offset any blacks.

    Painted by hand using Testors MMA and stickers from reprolabels!

    The flamethrower was built using a gun from an Energon figure, hand made flames, and a tank from my bin. The tank is removable and connects using a tiny rare earth magnet. The null rays were modified to allow full arm range movement as well.

    Thanks for your time!

    I love it. The flamethrower is awesome. Wildfire is a very cool name and I don't think I've ever heard it for a TF before.

    Nice going, although I also see Thundercracker. If you were to highlight the panel lines with a slightly lighter purple it'd really influence the whole colour scheme and look more like the one from the show. :)

    Ok, I'm, glad someone did an official (I say offiacal bc of the fact that, as stated, he's in the show) unknown seeker... That's awesome!!! I love it. I honestly thought at first the flame thrower was from the Robot Masters Beast Megatron with as good as it looks.

    Awesome job, I love it. Hot glue fireball I assume?
    Love the name too, I like how you were able to make him come close to everyone else, but still have his own thing going on. Well done.

    Hahaha awesome. I've been meaning to get to painting this guy up myself, just have to keep to one project at a time, that way things get done.

    "Flamethrower guy" is certainly on my list though. Awesome job.

    Love it. My only problem with it is that you should have gone for more of a purplish-blue.
