    Looking at pictures of Targetmaster Reflector online (since he hasn't shown up out here yet), he really does look like a miniature version of the G1 Viewfinder toy.

    It seemed like a fun project to try to create a Spectro and Spyglass at the micro-scale to go with them.

    Here's my render for Spyglass. He uses 3mm clips on his shoulders and hips. He might get a target master transformation later.

    Okay, so I lied a little. He ended up being a little taller than I intended...so I shrank him down. The shoulders and hips are now 2.4mm clips instead of 3mm clips. Hopefully, that doesn't make him too fragile.

    The smallest version is about 4.4cm tall (I figure his face will probably not be very detailed at that scale...but I can't really see much of what's going on with the Legends' targetmaster faces either.)

    Before I realized my goof, he was about 5.5cm...which would most likely have made him tower over Skrapnel's Reflector.

    Thanks! And I really need to start exporting these guys into a CAD program that makes them look more like actual objects.

    what might you base his potential gun mode on?

    Check out sketchfab, they have a sketchup plugin where you can export your models directly to the site. The rendering options are more "CAD looking" than what you can get out of sketchup.

    Check out a couple of my models as rendered by sketchfab:

    Part of me wants to turn Spectro and Spyglass into guns for the other two insecticons...but that seems like a real headache. I might just stick a 5mm peg back there and make a cannon pop out and call it a day.

    Any requests in the meantime?

    I'll have to try that out...

    A Spectro is haunting the renders...
