    Custom Transformer G1 Cartoon Seeker flamethrower - eBay (item 220651111657 end time Aug-15-10 19:57:06 PDT)

    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!

    Good luck with the auction man, that's a great job, and I love those obscure early generic Decepticons
