    so one of my early customs was adding some articulation to G1 Perceptor.
    [​IMG]
    after building up my custom collection I realized how much he didn't fit in anymore. poor 'ceptor. So I took him apart with the intention of updating some of his limbs and adding some detail here and there. then I threw it in a box.

    After reading All Hail Megatron i decided to go in this direction. Guido did such an awesome job updating him and I wanted to stay as true to his vision of the character while still maintaining some of the G1 elements. mainly I wanted him to have both his eyes as well as the monocle. here's how the progress has gone. I've been working on him off and on for a while mainly in between other projects.

    I saw the box for this in the background of your Shrapnel thread, and was intrigued.

    Looks amazing so far! Love how you use such an amalgam of random parts and yet they still all end up looking solid and coherent. The fist hidaway is brilliant and so is the flip-up monocle.

    Doesn't look like it! Who could sleep when one gets so excited, so inspired over TFs? :lol 

    But back to Perceptor, Even at this stage - He's shaping up to be the best Perceptor ever. Ever. :)  The only thing I could think of to improve him would be to somehow increase his microscope magnification from x14 up to x20/x30 or more. Don't ask me how you'd be able to do that... :lol
